having been a daily reader of this forum and many of the sub fora for 8 months i have been ingraced with much knowledge concerning all the view points pro and con in the great e-cig debate. one of the most often heard is why the ANTZ are so dead against vaping. follow the money of course.and its a sizable amount. i think now is the time we start following the other money. the money that's going to be saved in future medical cost's by not using combustible tobacco.i'm no accountant,but i'm darn sure we're looking at a large chunk of gingwhat here. when debating our side of the story we can add the following talking points. reduced cost to medical expenditure's would most assuredly lower insurance premiums in a noticeable, verifiable way. the freeing up of resources in the medical community could be used for other pressing issues. research into the treatment and cure for breast cancer,aids,ADHD,and(insert terrible childhood illness here) if vaping is 99% safer than combustible tobacco we should be willing to pay a 1% surcharge on all e-cig related juice and gear to kickstart more research into other medical issues as not to have to lay off all these future medical workers that wont be needed to treat us. if most of this is all about the money lets show them what all of this money can really do. respectfully submitted, mike in addendum.this debate is going to come up sooner or later. i say we start it now and take ownership over it. if we don't,in the future when these savings start to materialize the ANTZ and the FDA will take ownership and all the credit for it.
