    Poll shows 70 per cent want e-cigarrette vaping banned in public

    Just FYI, a link to an anti ENDS article.
    No comments section on this.
    It was the top result when I just googled e cigarette.
    Hope it's okay to start a new thread for this.

    I have no idea Snidely.
    It appears Kirsty is leading the propaganda against vaping.
    Here's another recent article by her.
    Seems she likes 70 percent stories.

    The part that gets me is the "spike in calls" over ejuice poisoning. I guess if 1 person calls one year 2 people the next and 4 the next as usage goes up dramatically you would get "spikes". Of course there is a spike of concern, they were not even a thing over a decade ago and they have really hit it off 4 years ago.

    It's probably a more accurate poll than the make believe numbers you see on vaping websites.

    Poll from a Vaping website.
    87% of people who try vaping quit smoking cigarettes in the first month

    Of course 87% of responders say they quit smoking. The people that didn't quit are not going to be hanging around on vaping websites when it doesn't work for them are they?

    The massive elephant in the room is dual users.
    Just because "you" may not dual use and people don't admit it for fear of being ridiculed, does not mean that a large percentage of "vapers" are not still smoking.

    You can see the questions from the link in this post.

    There is also discussion on that thread of how the survey was biased against e-cigs.

    So you're saying it is lies as opposed to damn lies or :shudder: statistics?

    1. Now a question about electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are electronic devices that contain a flavoured or nicotine-based liquid that is vaporised and inhaled. Theyíre battery powered, and when used, they produce a vapour instead of smoke. Some e-cigarettes look like cigarettes and others look like pens or small pipes.

    Before today had you heard of electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes?

    Yes/heard of 87%
    No/donít know 13%


    2. As you probably know in New South Wales itís illegal to sell cigarettes or tobacco products to people under the age of 18. But currently there are no restrictions like that on the sale of e-cigarettes. Would you personally be in favour or against making it illegal for shops to sell eĖ cigarettes to people under the age of 18?

    In favour 80%
    Against 12%
    Neither/donít know 7%


    3. In New South Wales, there are various places where people are not allowed to smoke Ė for example workplaces, public transport, indoor public spaces and so on. Currently however there are no restrictions like that on people using e-cigarettes.
    Would you personally be in favour or against the same restrictions applying for the use of e-cigarettes?

    In favour 70%
    Against 22%
    Neither/donít know 8%



    How is any of that survey biased against ecigs?
    It's perfectly reasonable questioning. I'm surprised it wasn't 90% in favour of applying the same restrictions to be honest.

    It's biased because Q 3 isn't giving the audience the whole picture on where smoking is banned in NSW.

    So you think the results would be different if the survey recipients thought you wouldn't be able to vape at the beach?

    The question would be 3 pages long. It shows examples of places that ecigs would have the same restrictions as cigarettes.
