I just need to know how I am supposed to use an E-cig as a timer when I stick it under the fuel line of a fast moving admiral yacht's so that I rig it to explode between two gunboats on an war-torn river in Mali. (This trick is known as a 'Panama')

The Goat Men Are Rampaging In The Fields: I would prefer that they be regulated as drugs/medical devices, personally. I have used one for four years now. I was able to quit a 15-year long pack-a-day habit literally instantly, and dread the tobacco companies finding ways to make them so expensive and heavily taxed that they become less financially viable than cigarettes. At this point, I can spend $100 a year to support my desire for nicotine delivered in a manner that satisfies my oral fixation with no smoke, no second-hand smoke, no discoloration of my teeth, no nastiness to my breath or personal odor, and no side effects yet seen or known. I'm sure that the tobacco lobby is livid at the prospect of even 10% of smokers doing the same.  I'd rather get the solid tests and trials to make certain that it's safe and keep them available and practical.


I couldnt read a word of your quote because I was dumbfounded by how awesome your handle is.

180IQ: gh0strid3r: zerth: Gas chromotography of exhaled vapor is unable to detect the presence of nicotine, although mass spectrometry can(in the parts per billion range).

You'd get more nicotine if you licked the roof of a smoker's mouth(approx 2% of nicotine vapor gets absorbed by saliva).

[...]

Yet the effects are still unknown.

Studies done: 0

I don't care what people do to their own bodies. That's their business and I don't think anyone, including the government, should have any say about it. But when you start affecting others against their will, that's where I have a problem.

You must be TERRIFIED of scented candles. All sorts of unknown chemicals released in to the air you breath in amounts far in excess of the nicotine content of e-cig vapor. Virtually no regulation. No studies showing how dangerous they truly are...

I don't know what you'd do if you spotted a Glade Plugin. Those things could pose a serious, yet completely unknown, risk to your health.


He's going to turn into a basket case if anyone ever tells him about car exhaust fumes.

PVPuffnStuff: This article is almost a year old, but this was the answer we wanted from the FDA.

There were 2 choices, either regulated as a tobacco product, or as a drug delivery device.

For those that think e-cigs suck, you have tried the ones that suck. The "free kit" guys all suck, that's why they're free.

I'd give you the link to my site, but that would be all spammy.

Suppose you could search for Valley Vapor if you really wanted to try them. We give away free ones to newbies, and sell the best ones available on the market.


Yeah, I looked. Now, without lying to me, which is the closest to just smoking an actual Marlboro, and how close is it?
I don't have an oral fixation, I have a nicotine addiction.
 A rubber dick would be a whole lot cheaper.

Nicotine on it's own is as harmful as caffeine.

Tobacco isn't regulated because it's tobacco, it's regulated because nicotine is on the pharmacological schedule. Being, you know, a drug.

The American FDA should listen to Dr. Patrick Basham, founding director of the Democracy Institute and an adjunct scholar with Cato's Center for Representative Government. He says that there are inconvenient facts about public health regulation the government are ignoring.

So you have to be 18 to buy it and the cost to society will be paid via taxes on the sale? I'm not offended by this.
