vaping community to grow large enough to fight back and we are winning when we stick together. Look at the petition this time, the first one almost didn't make 5000 in time, this one made 25000 with a week to spare. That means there are more people who will write letters with facts in them and as long as the people who get them are not died in the wool ANTZ they will listen. We have to keep informing people of the studies that are out there and let our congress critters know how we feel.
If you disagree, take it up with Emily Post.

"We have, in fact, two kinds of morality side by side: one which we preach but do not practice, and another which we practice but seldom preach." -- Bertrand Russell
I am shocked to see you talking about Public Health advocates and the Ms. Malone (or even the FDA) as though there was some relationship there!I would disagree with this assertion: "Public health advocates (and presumably the FDA) have a stake in saving lives." IMO, consumers have a stake in saving lives. So-called public health advocates such as Ms. Malone have a stake in insisting things be done "my way or the highway." Frankly, I'm not sure what the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products has a stake in. So far I am not convinced that it is in saving lives.
American Association of Public Health Physicians
As of April 2010, The American Association of Public Health Physicians (AAPHP) supports electronic cigarettes sales to adults "because the possibility exists to save the lives of four million of the eight million current adult American smokers who will otherwise die of a tobacco-related illness over the next twenty years." However, the AAPHP is against sales to minors. The AAPHP recommends that the FDA reclassify the electronic cigarette as a tobacco product (as opposed to a drug/device combination).
