    Altria Fact Sheet says MarkTen e-cigs available in "classic" and "menthol", contain 1.5% nicotine, and that e-liquid is made in US.
    Altria also stated that MarkTen, which is now available in Indiana, will be marketed in Arizona in December.

    I couldn't find this Fact Sheet on Altria's website (yet), but Altria sent this PDF in an e-mail.

    "Each e-cigarette cartridge contains approximately 1.5% nicotine by weight."
    So how does that translate to mg/ml?

    1.5% is Surprisingly low compared to the NJOY. I cant see many newbs getting much satisfaction from vaping that level of nic coming off cigarettes.

    NJOY Kings which are disposables offer 2 choices in nic levels
    30 mg/ml for Gold and 45 mg/ml for Bold

    The rechargeable PVs nic levels are 12mg/ml and 18 mg/ml

    I was smoking 2-3 packs a day when I found e-cigarettes
    and started with 36 mg/ml ... and still I would have liked
    at times to have higher nic levels.

    NJOY King Menthol Gold review (30 mg/ml)

    I am very pertubed that I must be 21 years of age to get a Mark ten. I guess i could see if they sell it any local stores (they card you for tobacco age of 18). I hate how companies like marlboro and camel would never give me coupons. granted I'm less than 3 months til 21. But, I'd probably order one now if I could...

    MarkTen is only being sold in Indiana and Arizona, which ban sales of tobacco products (and e-cigs) to anyone under 18.

    The only jurisdictions in the US that ban tobacco (and e-cig) sales to minors under 21 are NYC and the large island of Hawaii, and both of those laws were enacted recently. UT, AL, AK, NJ and some local governments in NY and MA ban tobacco (and e-cig) sales to minors under 19.

    The easiest way to translate percent into mg/ml is to move the decimal point to the right by one (i.e., multiply by 10) and add "/ml" after "mg." To convert in the other direction, reverse the process.

    So 15 mg/ml is 1.5% nicotine, and 2.4% nicotine is the same as 24 mg/ml.

    It would really be better if we standardized on using % of nicotine.

    Often, the "per milliliter" part is forgotten. All people can remember is 15 mg, for example. But the lay person assumes that means there are 15 mg in the package. Most cigarette look-alike brands have cartridges that hold from 1/3 to 1/2 a ml. Thus the total number of milligrams in an e-cigarette (cartridge) that contains 15 mg/ml would only be 5 to 7.5 mg, depending on the cartridge capacity.

    A percent stays the same regardless of the volume of the substance.

    Also ...
    There would be a lesser degree of opposition to e-cigarettes
    if everyone including our marketers would refer to the correct
    measurements ... including on the labels.

    18mg gives the illusion the content is 18% nicotine
    when actually there is only 1.5%

    Unfortunately most vapers and many marketers
    are still using the term 18mg on there labels and in discussions ...
    instead of 1.8 and unfortunately it will take an FDA regulation
    to insure accurate labels ... unless a miracle happens
    and all the marketers get on board with accurate labeling.

    Edit ...
    8 months ago I had a long discussion on this subject with my
    favorite Internet marketer and they agreed to change their
    labels to the the accurate % ... As of today,
    they haven't changed their labeling.

    I remember a post by Bill Godshall on this subject
    back in July 2013 ... Click Here

    Bad habits are hard to break
