"A number of anti-smoking advocates continue to make the assertion that electronic cigarette company marketing is promoting cigarette smoking.

In short, at least for 249 of the 250 electronic cigarette companies that are currently selling on the general market, there is zero incentive for them to promote continued smoking and none of them are doing that.

My examination of marketing for the only company (Blu cigs, owned by Lorillard) which could conceivably have an incentive to promote continued smoking - in addition to e-cigarette use - confirms that they are not in any way promoting smoking. What they are promoting is electronic cigarette use.

This has to be one of the most inane assertions being made by anti-smoking groups and advocates that I have ever heard."
