    Fantastic piece, well written. It's great to see Nick putting himself out there politically. I always did like that young fella, even if I hate his taste in just about everything

    Well say in this article. What really is about these noise makers are mainly:
    1. How can we tax them - the government
    2. My next election funds depending on the big noise makers - politicians
    3. This device will cost me billions of dollars lost for the patches and PR we have built in last 15-20 years - big pharma
    4. We need something to argue and make noises about so people know about us, give me some authorities and I will rule the world - Lobbyists
    5. If we can't destroy them, we will join them - big tobacco

    The raise of the e-cig means the end of lifecycle for some "money cow" products. These noisemakers are simply trying very hard to protect their "own interests". Why should they care some current and ex-smokers trying to save their own lives? This may sound a bad example but how many billionaires would rather becoming a poor man for saving a hobo's life? Now the hobo has got a shotgun but the lawmaker say you can't use it.
