    I guess it's legal in RI. I got my landlord, who also happens to be a Providence police officer into vaping.

    Any of you ever "corrupt" the law with something the FDA wants to ban? I say the more in law enforcement that gets involved, the better. :D

    "Phht, you want us to serve a search warrant and confiscate the guys e-cigs? Do it yourself." ;)

    Sweet!

    Although looking around at the police in my town, I'm not exactly sure they are old enough to shave let alone smoke.

    That is pretty cool. I might be surprised, but I would be willing to bet that there are not too many cops in my town that vape or even know about it.

    I did a demo of a DSE901 for a female detective in my home town, Her first question was can it be used to smoke Crack? I told her I think most crackheads dont use the internet to shop. heh

    Why would they confiscate your stuff when they have their own.

    Well, maybe all the e-Juice in the trunk may be tempting. 8-o

    Ah, the Providence Police. They are a law unto themselves. Great guys but definitely outside the box.

    In CA we have Legal Medical ........., so the assumption of E-Cigs is always the same... Getting over that hurdle, and proving that its not weed really helps the opinion of E-cigs in the eyes of law enforcement. The green LED on my 901 dose not help..

    Be careful guys I almost got arrested cause a cop thought my e-cig was a pinch hitter, took me 30minutes to explain what it was. It all worked out in the end come to find out he was a smoker and was very interested in ordering one for his self.

    Well here on the forums they have strict no drug talk rules and I don't want to break these rules but its something used for drugs I am going to leave it at that. If you own a titan e-cig the first thing a cop is going to think is that.

    Yea I have a friend who is a cop and he smokes showed it to him and the first thing he said whats that a pinch hitter, he wasn't the one who almost arrested me though it was a different cop. I mean I love my titan but it drives me up the wall when people are like that looks just like a pinch hitter and of course you no what people ask is can you use it as a vaporizer for a different purpose.

    We call them one hitters- never heard the term pitch hitter. All the paraphernalia we carry with our ecigs does make me feel like I am doing illegal stuff or something. Cops have yet to say anything to me though. I was mixing juice the other day, boiling tips, and organizing my tackle box and a friend stopped by and said it really did look like I was cooking illegal stuff in the kitchen.
    The upkeep with these things is nuts- I cant believe we all want to be non smokers so badly that we go thru the rituals and maintenance. I think we deserve a round of applause and someone in this stupid country needs to realize the extremes we will go to and hook us up with some working units. Like, yesterday, please.

    It's better than dealing with the upkeep of the oxygen concentrators, tanks, CPAP machines, and tubes running all over the house. My grandmother did.

    And lawdy forbid-- the power being down for more than a few hours, even if you have battery backups or a generator. Oh and don't ever expect delivery or maintenance if it even looks like it's going to snow (that's when they get all the emergency calls.)

    I'll take the e-cigs anyday. :)

    Well lets just hope they never become illegal in the US then we would have a real mess lol, the cop looks in my car is that a e-cig setting in your car, yes officer, step out of the car now! Oh man imagine dealing with that mess.

    Then think about afterwords haha if they managed to search your house and all the other e-cig parts and all the juice most of us has stocked up.
