    The lunatic war on e-cigarettes

    The lunatic war on e-cigarettes | New York Post

    Sales of electronic cigarettes have risen dramatically in recent years. Whether you see that development as an opportunity or a threat depends on whether you view the matter rationally or through a fog of prejudice that makes anything resembling a cigarette look sinister, regardless of the risks it actually poses.

    I doubt that she will. It is too early in the cycle here in Australia. E- Cigarettes have been news in America for longer than here in Australia. The longer it goes on the more journalists find out, the more obvious the nonsense of the public health becomes.

    But it takes time. The journalist from the Age virtually knew nothing about ecigs before starting her story, her next story she will know more.

    Sad thing is, it's still Aussie MSM, any positive findings she does report will only be edited, twisted, or miss-quoted to suit the desires of the powers that be
    I'm too young to be this jaded -_-

    Funnily enough NZ isn't really that much different
    Some say that you can sell nic there some say you cant
    I bought my first kit from there and got nic with it, but they only 'gift' it with any full kit purchase.
    at the same time there are other businesses there you can buy it from
    weird place
