    The E-Cig Market Is Still Smokin'

    Although the Food and Drug Administration will undoubtedly try to snuff out the emerging electronic cigarette market when it reveals its soon-to-be-released regulations, the industry continues evolving in new, unforeseen directions that will leave regulators, antismoking crusaders, and politicians scrambling once again to catch up.

    According to Wells Fargo, sales are on fire and far surpass original estimates because of innovations and variations that are a natural outgrowth of an unregulated industry. Because early numbers focused only on so-called "cig-alikes" -- those devices used as a form of nicotine-replacement therapy to deliver nicotine more safely -- sales data has dramatically underestimated how far the market has grown, perhaps by as much as 60%. The analyst now estimates the total e-cig retail market in the U.S. at $2 billion as second- and third-generation devices begin to eclipse sales of original e-cigs.

    Yay! It's a run away train....it makes me happy when I think how infuriating this must be for those that believe they can control the masses. They must be desperately scrambling to catch up and feeling a little out of control themselves.

    You know, I've often thought that smokers would be a likely group to start a revolution, and the topic of vaping a good catalyst.

    Anyone who is still smoking after a 30 year campaign to brainwash, control and capitalise on our 'weakness' is likely to be a person who doesn't sit down quietly when told to. All those who have faith in the powers-that-be have long ago been terrified into obediently quitting.

    Or if you were one who repeatedly tried and still couldn't quit, you probably started to realise that you were being used and abused at some point along the way and carry a fair bit of anger and resentment about that. A group of smokers huddled on the periphery of 'acceptable' with those kinds of feelings is, naturally, a hotbed of anti-establishment sentiment.

    Vive le revolution!

    So, to quote douglas adams: who will be first up against the wall when the revolution comes?
