tobacco cigarettes used to advertise all the time before they were banned from advertising on TV's and radios in the U.S. in 1971. Why haven't e-cig companies advertised in the media yet? I'm sick and tired of these anti-smoking commercials with the guy and his amputated leg and the woman with the hole in her throat. Those ads aren't effective, only disturbing and annoying. We need to give smokers a viable alternative, not scare them into trying to quit cold turkey.
