Oh man, this sounds amazing. Too bad the liquid nicotine is illegal where I live -  can only buy e-cigs with replaceable cartridges.

I'd actually be insanely amazed if they didn't threaten legal action against the e-cig people. Every single one of the more familiar names they listed in that article (Thin Mint, Tootsie Roll and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Junior Mints, and to a lesser extent "Fireball" since I can't find if Ferrara did a partial on "Atomic Fireball" or not) are all trademarked. Hell, they're even trying to lure people in by infringing on Marlboro and Camel for farks sakes...

Still also a bit intrigued at the fact that at least one poster on another site (an earlier Al Jazeera article on the vape liquid being toxic as fark IIRC) had the audacity to claim they weren't trying to market this stuff to kids. I'd gone on to a e-cig website or three to look at the flavors for the vape stuff and found an ungodly amount of candy-related varieties. Using actual candy names just pretty much clinches the argument IMO...

That's weird, because I have gone to multiple sites and ordered e-liquid and I have never seen it marketed using the brand name. For example, the flavor which was obviously supposed to mimic Oreos was called "Cookies and Creme", the one which was supposed to taste like Swedish Fish was called "Movie Theater Fish". I figured it was because of copyrights.

Well, most E-cig places I've seen are super small, just beginning businesses and probably under the assumption that corporations don't have them on their radar yet. They'll rename it "Cinnamon French Bread"  or "Favorable Charms", "Count Blackula", or "Admiral Shatter" and go on business as usual.

Because 'THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN'!  It's the same bullshiat argument as sex ed. We've known since AT LEAST the 80's when public campaigns went big that smoking is bad for you. We've also known for at least as long that unprotected sex is dangerous. Yet people constantly harp about both as though those who engage in these activites are somehow innocent and not responsible for their actions. People know smoking is dangerous. People know about herpes and aids. People will do what they will, regardless of consequence, and blame anyone they can for those consequences.

Oddly enough, the people and groups who are against regulation aren't the manufacturers or users of these products, it's the anti-tobacco crowd, and mostly for reasons that seem inexplicable (or to be honest, purely crazy).

Anyway, I switched over to e-cigs a while back from normal cigarettes and so far it's been good. The product itself is just nicotine with water, so there is no smell or smoke, no nicotine stained fingers and my smokers cough and retching has gone away. My sense of smell/taste has also returned and I'm actually using *less* nicotine than I was cigarettes.

The last factor was the most surprising to me, but the way I figure it, was every time I had a cigarette, I was having the whole cigarette, regardless of if I wanted the whole thing or not. With the e-cig, sometimes I just go and have 2 or 3 puffs, and then put it down for hours, my nicotine craving satisfied.

I know the anti-tobacco crowd are fighting hard to keep these from being labelled as smoking cessation devices, but in my experience so far, it's been way more effective for me than the patch or the gum has ever been. I have absolutely no desire to pick up a normal cigarette again and while I am certainly reaping the health benefits of not inhaling smoke anymore, my nicotine usage is also tapering off over time.

I'm really happy these things exist. I've been a cigarette smoker for almost 20 years and I think I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh, go fark yourself.  Just because something comes in "flavors" does not automatically mean "omg they're marketing to kids".  Just like cake-flavored vodak is not being marketed to kids.  Yes, adults like those flavors too, you myopic twits.  Adults farking eat candy.

It's this kind of reactionary, hyperbolic bullshiat that prevents us from having nice things.

I think anti-tobacco would be quite happy for them to be sold as smoking cessation devices, providing they were proven, regulated and marketed as such. i.e. sold by a pharmacist and in a regimen which is designed to encourage quitting. The problem at present is that they are being marketed in a way that normalizes the idea that inhaling an addictive drug is somehow a cool & sexy thing with cool glowing tips and flavours for extra sexy sex. It's like the absolute worst days of tobacco advertising.

Regulate too hard, and you'll push them underground, as it is right now, you could put an ecig together at a home depot pretty easily.

Also, your comments are crap, you never responded to the sweet tasting liquor arguments up above.

Also, the glowy tips bullshiat is for noobs. The ecig myself and most of the people I know are basically tubes, with a flashlight battery inside, screwed to an atomizer, that's built by hand by the user.

Further, I have no idea why you think the alternatives are better. Ecigs helped me stop smoking regular ciggarettes, and as someone with regular kidney and gout problems, I've had no flareups since I switched. There's, at least, anecdotal evidence that Ecigs are much better for people than regular cigs.

Ecigs are fine for your use.

They shouldn't be marketed in a manner to attract new users though. As simple as that.

Ideally they should only be available per prescription.

I've noticed this myself. I see cigarette brands labeled a surprising amount, but foods I usually see approximated, or with their own name.

However, it's possible these brand name violations are being done by shiat companies. Ecigs are pretty much unregulated, so there are huge differences in the quality of each individual company, and some I've seen have been pretty fly by night, IMO. I don't notice any of these problems from the higher quality companies, because they're invested in ecigs flourishing, rather than riding what must be a sweet money wave while the ecig thing takes off.

I'm glad you enjoy vaping instead of smoking (as do I) but you should know that ejuice base is not water. It's propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Both are FDA approved for ingestion and injection, but not yet for inhalation as a vapour. Smoke machines use exactly the same ingredients.

RowdyRough: Also, your comments are crap, you never responded to the sweet tasting liquor arguments up above.


So called "alcopops" came in the firing line too in their day and the industry at least in the UK and EU abides by codes concerning their packaging, marketing and sale. And of course they're also subject to the same regulations and restrictions for advertising and sale as alcohol. Ofcom has very strict rules on alcohol adverts on TV.

Second. Even if you believe that alcopops are still sold or pitched at kids, it's a logical fallacy called "you too", that someone else's wrongdoing somehow absolves your own. The alcohol industry could be the devil incarnate but it doesn't mean e-cigs should be permitted likewise.

At least regulations for alcohol exist and government seem serious about enforcing them. Tobacco products too. Where's the regulation for e-cigs?

That makes no sense given prescriptions are not required in order to purchase cigarettes, which we know are much worse than e-cigs for a person's health.

Further, I have no idea why you think the alternatives are better. Ecigs helped me stop smoking regular ciggarettes, and as someone with regular kidney and gout problems, I've had no flareups since I switched. There's, at least, anecdotal evidence that Ecigs are much better for people than regular cigs.

Ecigs are fine for your use.

They shouldn't be marketed in a manner to attract new users though. As simple as that.

Ideally they should only be available per prescription.

That makes no sense given prescriptions are not required in order to purchase cigarettes, which we know are much wors ...


Cigarettes being legal is what makes no sense.

If launched today they would obviously never be allowed onto the market.

I am sure prohibiting cigarettes would make the mafia happy, so best not to do that.

But, what we should do is our utmost to not create new users. And having "innocent" ecigarettes with cute tastes freely available is not what we want to do.

They're still addictive, and depending on pricing, a gateway to ordinary cigarettes.

spawn73: Nidiot: spawn73: RowdyRough: drxym: TwistedFark: I know the anti-tobacco crowd are fighting hard to keep these from being labelled as smoking cessation devices, but in my experience so far, it's been way more effective for me than the patch or the gum has ever been. I have absolutely no desire to pick up a normal cigarette again and while I am certainly reaping the health benefits of not inhaling smoke anymore, my nicotine usage is also tapering off over time.

I think anti-tobacco would be quite happy for them to be sold as smoking cessation devices, providing they were proven, regulated and marketed as such. i.e. sold by a pharmacist and in a regimen which is designed to encourage quitting. The problem at present is that they are being marketed in a way that normalizes the idea that inhaling an addictive drug is somehow a cool & sexy thing with cool glowing tips and flavours for extra sexy sex. It's like the absolute worst days of tobacco advertising.


Regulate too hard, and you'll push them underground, as it is right now, you could put an ecig together at a home depot pretty easily.

Why the hell would someone go from vaping inexpensive, delicious tasting ecigs to expensive, cough-inducing stench-ridden cancer sticks?

What we want to do is provide an enjoyable, safe way for people to enjoy nicotine as an alternative to smoking. They're called ecigs.
