    Its not dumb. By demonizing ecigs in this way and any other way, the sheep (90% of humanity), those who do not self-determine, develop a fear of it, and do their master's bidding for them. Very clever actually.

    E-cigarettes are not being demonized any more so than cigarettes. And rightfully so. If you want to smoke do so in the deer woods. That way if you start a fire, it will not be a National Park Forest turned to ashes. And even though one is not actually using fire with e-cigarettes, the perception is there. In fact it is this perception that makes them think they are smoking less and preventing them from actually quitting. And at the end of the day they are more likely to start back because they didn't have the devotion to abruptly stop. In other words their heart wasn't in it.

    You seem to be proceeding from the assumption that nicotine has no medicinal function, and is something to fear. You best stop eating broccoli then I guess, or alternatively research nicotine.

    From being a pack-a-day to 2 packs-a-day smoker, I haven't been a smoker for 3 years, though the 1st year had mixed results. My favorite vape flavor? Red Hot Cinnamon!

    Though vaping is not advertised or marketed as a means of becoming smoke-free, it works well as a much healthier substitute. Naturally, the overreaching government want to restrict healthier alternatives. Big Brother *always* knows best, even when it's wrong!

    Indeed. When we act independently we are less vulnerable to having the effects of our actions co-opted. When we sacrifice our ability to act independently, it is wickedness that capitalizes on the opportunity to exploit us. Granted goodness is also afforded the same opportunity, however for reasons beyond the scope of this discussion, wickedness defeats goodness in this situation. Wickedness, generally speaking, has a greater appetite to control others than goodness, and less to control itself.

  6. Electronic cigarettes are WITHOUT QUESTION, the most effective anti smoking devices ever made . You have to be the dumbest bastard on the planet to ban these devices .

    If it wasn't for e cigs, I and many people that I know who have smoked all their lives and have tried everything available to quit and failed have succeeded by giving electronic cigarettes a try .

    My health has taken a complete turn and I'm healthier than ever before and it's 100% because of switching to e cigs (according to my physician ) who is astonished to say the least .

    This just proves one more very obvious fact , the Gov doesn't know a damn thing and the chances of it ever getting a clue are slim to none at best .

    Government knows how to preserve and enrich themselves, at least give them that! Whenever you hear someone say "I'm here to help", run, don't walk, as fast as you can in the other direction.
