I think that he focuses too much on the conspiracy theory aspect of the opposition. I think allot of the anit-ecig stuff that is being put out there stems mainly from complete ignorance of the product. if the ecig lobby really wants this to change they need to publish independent studies showing the safety of e-cigarettes and the heath benefits from their use. To simply say that "big tobacco" out to get us is kind of a cop out. Do a you-tube search for the health benefits of vaping and most are low quality interviews with some unnamed doctor or thinly veiled product commercials. Lets get some credible evidence and then we can throw that in the face of whomever tries to challenge it.

The majority of testing is done or funded by those making a product. This is the way of the world, at least until some altruistic organization shows up with a bottomless bank account. The people/company making the product conducts/funds tests/studies and the results are submitted to the appropriate governmental agency for review.
I can understand the "but they did/paid for the study" mentality; but only those who will profit from such efforts have any incentive to pay out the, some times, millions of dollars needed to conduct such research.
