    Look what I found on Wikipedia! (Time to make another donation to them I think....)


    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.[31] The AAPHP recommends that the FDA reclassify the electronic cigarette as a tobacco product (as opposed to a drug/device combination).[32][33]
    “When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action. When you desire a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.”

    They were classified as tobacco products rather than drugs in 2010 by Judge Leon so the point is moot.

    Resolutions currently up are listed here:

    American Association of Public Health Physicians - Tobacco Resolutions

    Also the third link on that page, "How and Why AAPHP Developed the Two Tobacco Policy Resolutions - as seen by Joel L. Nitzkin, MD," was particularly interesting for me. I don't know if it's been covered here elsewhere.

    That is interesting to know.
