    Ban on snus maintained. With most extreme action being taken in every vote, it's not looking good for e-cigarette amendment. #tobacco

    I'm having an impossible time following the committee so also watching Twitter. Rebecca Taylor MEP has said the e-cigs vote will be very tight.

    E-cigarette amendment rejected. Well done to MEPs who took principled stand. Shame on those who didn't. To be continued. #tobacco

    Rory Morrison ‏@rorymorr 2m

    Basically if medicines regulation is applied then e-cigs have to go through the same process as all other medicines. Basically none of the good vendors can afford that, only big tobacco and big pharma can and they will only produce cigalikes with tobacco flavour. They were talking about allowing up to 4mg as a recreational product but anything more would have to be a medicine. I'm looking for the exact text of the amendment now but it's hiding from me.

    Stay tuned, this is not over. Read this : Counsel Opinion Confirms No Justification for Changes to E-Cig Regulation | ECITA Blog

    Btw, this is the series of tweets by the World health Organisation just hours before the vote. Edited by Anon.

    A lot of the vapers I've been talking to are simply going to give up on Parlimentary proceedings, and calling this a defeat all up. Parliaments as a collective are too influenced by multi-trillion dollar industry lobby groups. Just look at how the World Health Organisation conducted itself in the hours leading up to the vote. They're the biggest pharmeceutical shills on the planet, and have lost all credibility.

    It's so obvious what is happening.

    First the Pharmeceutical Industry pays anti-smoking organisations to discredit ecigs and inform people to stay away from them. This keeps the populatiry of ecigs down so that people dont care how they are regulated, and it also maintains the sales of Nicotine patches, gums and inhalers, not to mention the new Liquid QuickMist.

    Then they have ecigs regulated as medicines.

    Meanwhile, the whole time they're developing their own medical electronic cigarette.

    This picture is absolutely true.

    It's a corrupt system, and the only people who lose are the smokers themselves. All focus will be now on the Judicial system where we've had major success in previous years. Maybe we should have focused on it from the beginning, but then, we wouldn't have first hand experience on how corrupt the Parliamentary system is. Now we know.
