    When you write, tell them that the last sentence of Definition (17) SMOKE or SMOKING falsely defines "smoking" as including the use of smokefree e-cigarettes. Therefore, ask them to amend Definition (17) SMOKE or SMOKING to change the last sentence to read, "E-cigarettes do not produce smoke."

    thank you!

    I faxed a letter to McClurkin, and last some of the other house health committee members got snail mail packets from me ....i suppose I'll have to send 'em again.

    right now we're fighting the city, the senate, and the house.

    The Birmingham news posted my letter to the editor today (written with assistance from Gregory Conley of CASAA)

    Nice job CES. IMO the first few replies distract from your point though. They should have done their own editorial on the merits, or lack thereof, of the second-hand smoke issue. The point you were making gets lost in that crap. But - JMO, I could be wrong.
