    I really don't understand why 'Tobacco products' and ecig products can even be used in the same sentence!

    It's like alcohol makers having to label their products as gasoline, it's pathetic.

    Also I loved the way that lady convinced the rest of the board (who have never probably even heard of an e-cig) that it's pretty much the same as consuming anit-freeze


    PATHETIC

    No, more like ethanol is a wheat or sugar product. It's what it originates from. Nicotine used in ecigs originates from tobacco.

    Unfortunately, nicotine can only be regulated in the U.S. under just two catagories - tobacco product or drug.

    If we let them catagorize it as a drug, it will be reomved from the market until it can be tested and proven as "safe," exceedingly high standards must be met, taste and nicotine strength will be reduced, prices will be jacked up to pay for the testing and then they can be sold only by approved drug companies.

    As a tobacco product, such testing is not required, standards are lower and they can remain on the market. Taxes will be added, but even if they are taxed as high as cigarettes, they will still be 1/2 the cost of cigarettes and only 1/4 the cost if it were called a drug.
