    If kids who were going to smoke tobacco end up trying e-cigarettes instead, then this is a public health gain.

    If kids who were not going to smoke tobacco end up trying e-cigarettes, and never go onto tobacco smoking, then it is still not a public health loss. Not a gain, but not a loss either.

    If kids who were not going to smoke tobacco try e-cigarettes, and this acts as a gateway to tobacco smoking, then it is a public health loss.
    As has been said before by Dave Dorn, flavours in ecigs are a barrier to both the gateway and relapse. So it is vital that flavoured ejuice is kept legal to prevent any chance (however unlikely) that ecigarettes could act as a gateway to tobacco smoking.

    These are really good concepts to remember for media interviews. They are direct attacks on Simon Chimpman's gateway fallacy and also a good reason not to ban flavoured ejuice.
