So I am killing time playing bejeweled online and there are ads that pop up from time to time. One time one about ecigs pops up with the phrase "can smoking really be healthy" and "fake cigarettes" in it. I click on the link and am brought to one of those ad pages designed to look like a news report and on the bottom of the page is a free trial offer from Knight E-cigs.
Bejeweled is not necessarily an adult specific game and the site that I was playing from clearly is geared towards a younger audience even advertising downloads of Nickelodeon and nintendo games. This is extremely irresponsible and exactly what the California case was citing that these products were being marketed to kids.
I was wondering if what anybody's thoughts were about this and if anyone thinks the forum members should try to pressure Knight Ecigs to stop this kind of marketing. It seems like this kind of marketing works against acceptance of ecigs as a a safe alternative to smoking for adults and adds fuel to the fire for those who would like to take this away. Imagine if a tobacco company was caught advertising on a site that is likely used by kids. If anybody wants links and and specific name of the game site I can give it later.
