    Default If it cost government $20 billion to...

    Enforce prohibition annually of a recently illegal substance. Then how much do you all think it will cost them to enforce the regulation of e-cigs? But hey, I'm sure they'll raise taxes to help cover the costs. Really mind blowing for something with so much potential for good. If memory serves in 1927 it cost the government something like $100 million dollars to cover the cost of alcohol prohibition. I love having people so smart making the laws and rules to keep me safe. Sorry for the rant but had to vent. Been spreading the word in my community and people act like it can't or won't happen.

    I wish More People would get Active like you have instead of just Talking about things to Vaper's who Already Share the Same Opinion.

    Right On cowjelly.

    Since when was the spending of money they don't have a concern of the Congress and the government in general?

    Regulation will pay for itself, ticket here ticket there tickets everywhere. Don't feed into that BS that says it actually costs them money to regulate such things. How much does it really cost them to have a patrol guy that would already be on duty otherwise to just give someone a fine if they're found with such items?

    Prohibiting anything only drives the prices up and gets the mob on the scene.
    If the margin is right, nicotine will be run through the same suplly lines that are in place already for other substances.
