    Misbehave responsibly with e-cigarettes

    Reality deflection

    A spokesperson for the Food and Drug Administration, which wants to regulate e-cigarettes, said, "We don't want the public to perceive them as a safer alternative to cigarettes" a puzzling statement considering that is precisely what they are.

    Anti-smoking absolutists oppose e-cigarettes for the worst of reasons because they are safer. Their obstinacy makes their mission all the more difficult to achieve and to justify. It is hard to demonize something that means you little or no harm. That's why no one talks about banning vitamin C or invading Switzerland.

    As Phil Busardo says, everytime I read about ecig politics I get a red dot on my forehead because I'm banging my head into the table.

    It doesn't help when you're getting infomation like this from the World Harm Organisation .......

    ‘Tobacco companies are targeting youth and women by adding the notion of glamour, luxury and freedom to the e-cigarette. Countries must frame regulatory guidelines to advise consumers not to use it,’ she said.
