    Nicotine addiction expert urges regulation, not prohibition

    Joseph DiFranza, MD, a nationally recognized expert on nicotine addiction in adults and children, thinks that electronic cigarettes are a good thing for smokers trying to kick the habit.

    “We actually think it may be a good development, because nicotine itself is not harmful,” said DiFranza, professor of family medicine & community health. “If we could get people off the cigarettes, off the tobacco, and just get them to take a medicinal or pure form of nicotine, we could save hundreds of thousands of lives every year.”

    Scary that a health positive science head is suggesting that big tobacco should have exclusivity in supplying liquid nicotine to the masses(because they can afford to regulate it).
    It was great to hear him say that nicotine is harmless though.
