    just got my copy, but for the benefit of non-subscribers/cheapskates :)p) it's also available online @ Have the tobacco police gone too far? - science-in-society - 01 April 2009 - New Scientist (this week only, unless you have subscriber access to their archive.)

    Very interesting - mentions Dr. Siegel, Carl Phillips, e-cigs and other smokeless products, and the unscrupulous tactics of the health fascists in trying to stop research that doesn't support their own intolerant prejudices.

    Best quote: "This is censorship. We are heading towards scientific McCarthyism"

    All too true! But it's good to see that a serious scientific magazine can take a level-headed perspective on an issue that's so emotive. I've noticed before that NS is more open to fair debate than some of its rivals on contentious issues like this - long may it continue!

    Thanks for pointing out that article....we look to the scientists to be people who do nothing but present the facts and the unbiased truth.....but unfortunately we can't even rely on them for that but at least that article shows there are some that do have complete integrity.

    Good article, thanks for posting it. I did notice that the Bill Godshall referenced in the article posted on here today and seems to support electronic vaporizers as a positive alternative to analogs. The article confirms what I believe about the anti-smoking nazi's, that they would prefer we all just lay down and die and are as closed minded as Joseph MaCarthy was.
