The one bill sent to Gov. Pat Quinn in the spring legislative session bans sale of the cigarette alternative to anyone younger than 18. But the debate continues on just how to regulate e-cigarettes. About all that both sides agree on is that some type of regulation is coming with the growing popularity of the products.

eSmokers – Breaking the Law or Just Our Patience?

Second-Hand-Vaping-is-Harmless

A transplant from Houston who moved to California about eight years ago, he was running a guitar-repair business at 4103 N. Viking Way, Suite D, until Blake Robinson, a 20-year-old vaper, walked into the store one day. Robinson was vaping, and Demetra grew interested. The shop was soon transformed into a hub for vapers, with one guitar encased on a wall, and Robinson behind the counter, sharing his zeal for vapes.

Makers of electronic cigarettes are enjoying a booming marketplace even as they keep wary eye on the Food and Drug Administration, which is expected to release proposed regulations of the nicotine-vapor-peddling category this fall. The lack of federal regulations on e-cigarettesin contrast to tight rules on traditional smokeshas given companies a long leash. Sales of the products are projected to double to $1 billion, with about 250 different brands, all without nationwide restrictions on advertising, Internet sales, flavorings or even the age of buyers. But those days are numbered. Vivien Azer, a Citigroup tobacco analyst, said the lack of federal regulations has given e-cig companies “some breathing room” to grow.

E-cig sellers jockey for market position before FDA issues regulations

Seattle and Tacoma the bans are largely ignored. I have no clue what you have in NYC that smells like burning toe cheese. seanjkil If you want to attack e-smoking I would stick with the fact that there is no regulation of the places that create the e-liquid nor any regulation of the contents of whats actually in the e-liquid. Once there is actual regulation of this substance and the places that manufacture it I believe e-cigarettes will become a much safer and viable substitute compared to smoking.

Editorial: LIRR is right to ban e-cigarettes

Electronic Cigarette Company Launches New Website

However, the long-term risks of inhalation are not clear. A German cancer institute reviewed research on e-cigarettes and said secondhand exposure may raise a child’s risk for asthma. Further, the German study said: “Adverse health effects for third parties exposed cannot be excluded because the use of electronic cigarettes leads to emission of fine and ultrafine inhalable liquid particles, nicotine and cancer-causing substances into indoor air.” As the devices are touted as an aid to quit smoking, U.S. cigarette makers are jumping into the market with flavors that include strawberry and pina colada. Meanwhile, the FDA is studying e-cigarette health effects and whether to regulate the devices as it regulates tobacco. As with tobacco, it’s not necessarily the risk to smokers themselves that creates concern, but to those who, in public spaces like trains, have no choice but to inhale secondhand vapor.

E-cigarettes: the new fracking

E-cigarettes contain liquefied nicotine, which is heated into a vapor that is inhaled. Nicotine is addictive. Many smokers say they smoke e-cigarettes as a bridge to quitting. But there are plenty of reasons to fear this is just another way to keep people addicted to the smoking industry, period. The Globe recently reported that Boston has issued 61 store permits to sell e-cigarettes since March, five times more than in the same period last year.

Citing danger, PMA urges e-cigarettes ban

Our young ones can easily be enticed and duped into smoking by these novelty devices,” Olarte said in a statement. According to Olarte, the use of e-cigs is not an ”alternative lifestyle” as claimed by its proponents and promoters but is actually a new and an ”alternative vice” which should not be taught to the public in general and children in particular. Alwan earlier stated that ”e-cigs marketers and propagandists should immediately remove from their advertisements and websites any suggestion that the WHO considers electronic cigarettes to be safe and an effective smoking cessation aid because this is untrue.” Olarte, who is both a medical doctor and a practicing lawyer, asked the Aquino administration to act on this crucial issue and post a ban on its sale because it is contrary to the intent and provisions of the law (Republic Act 9211) which was crafted to protect everybody, most specifically the youth, from nicotine addiction and myriad of ailments like chronic respiratory and cardiovascular diseases that can kill.

Antismoking groups push for veto of R.I. e-cigarette legislation

The legislation comes as more attention is being focused on the products, which have been widely distributed for less than a decade. But with no federal regulations yet, states such as Rhode Island seeking to impose laws are faced with a basic but critical question: how to define an e-cigarette. Nine states, including Vermont and New Hampshire, have revised their definition of tobacco products to include e-cigarettes and other related products, according to Kevin OFlaherty, advocacy director for the national Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. That subjects them to the same taxes, regulations and licensing requirements as traditional cigarettes and cigars. It is also consistent with what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said it intends to do if and when it adopts its own regulations, according to OFlaherty.

Above all, we are a company that cares for the health of our customers. We understand that they are going through a difficult time, and we want to help, the company announced. John Paul Pollock of The Vapor Store in Golden described e-cigarettes as a dignified alternative for people who smoke. However, Walton rejects comparison to other stop-smoking products such as the FDA-approved nicotine patch and nicotine-infused gum. There is no research that shows that (e-cigarettes) are an effective cessation or stop-smoking aid or device, she said.

Totally Wicked Responds to the European Parliament Decision to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes that Will Cost Lives

EU regulation of e-cigarettes a step closer

E-cigarettes do not do this; they simply deliver clean nicotine without the tar, carbon monoxide, and volatile hot gases of cigarettes. For people who switch from cigarettes, they hugely reduce risk, while satisfying the need for nicotine and some of the behavioural aspects of smoking. Far from helping those smokers who want to switch, medicines regulation will add costs, impose burdens, apply restrictions, and hold back innovation. It may result in many smaller and more innovative producers of electronic cigarettes going out of business. Medicines regulation creates a default prohibition and requirement for approval, leaving tobacco cigarettes as the only easily marketed source of nicotine.

Electronic cigarettes sprout on Boston shelves

Electronic Cigarettes Retailer Vapor Jedi Launches New Canadian Website

Spots from smaller companies, such as Logic, are popping up on hip-hop radio stations, promoting summer concerts. And in Internet ads, a sexy woman in a stylish hat, looking like a character straight out of the popular Mad Men TV show, promotes the e-cigs brand, which has packaging that features the slogan, For a healthier lifestyle. The marketing borrows a page from glitzy tobacco company commercials that filled the airwaves before a federal ban on TV and radio cigarette ads four decades ago. (E-cigarettes are not considered tobacco products, so they are not covered by the federal restriction.) Quang Tran is already sold. The 28-year-old former tobacco smoker, who runs his familys Green Garden Liquor & Deli in Hyde Park, started selling e-cigarettes last month, after several customers asked for them.

Electronic Cigarette Company Reaches Milestone

The new site features Vapor Jedi’s exclusive line of eJuice, offered in over 50 flavor selections with or without nicotine. Electronic cigarettes have been receiving a lot of media attention lately, but many still ask the question, are electronic cigarettes legal. Health Canada has sent out letters to nicotine vendors asking them to stop selling the products, and several European countries have recently passed legislation classifying similar products as medical devices, which limits and prevents their sale and purchase. However, though it may seem a legal “gray area,” no retailer has been charged with a crime related to selling electronic cigarettes in Canada. Although they are gaining popularity, there are still many misconceptions surrounding electronic cigarettes.

While this may be a “drop in the bucket” for its competitors, it warrants a celebration for the fast growing company, which has only been around for a little over a year. EC Smokes also reports that the company is quickly closing in on its target number of online customers. And while the company has less stores then its competitors, its stores report that EC smokes has been outselling the leading brands by more than two-to-one. This is partly because EC Smokes offer three flavor cartridges in its premium electronic cigarette starter kits compared to its rivals, whose kits come with only two cartridges. This is Equivalent to a full extra pack of cigarettes for a lower price. And just to clear things up…

E-Cigarette Business Booming in Ozarks

“Tried one of the disposables and thought well that’s not bad.” Houp’s new habit is e-cigarettes. They are devices that turn nicotine liquid into an inhalable vapor and are used to help smokers quit. And it’s a hot business. “I jumped on the bandwagon and it was very successful,” says Andrew Smart, with Smoke51. Smart says his sales have soared for the past five years.”There’s a lot of people who wanted to quit smoking and there’s a lot of products out there that won’t cut it.” According to the CDC, one in five adults have tried e-cigarettes. Sales in 2011 topped two billion dollars worldwide. “Everyday we get new people, new people coming back to us,” Smart says. And while major tobacco companies are now selling their version of e-cigarettes, Smart says specialized smokes like his will remain on the rise. “People will try these other products cause they are cheaper and realize if it was just a little bit better maybe I could have quit smoking.” The FDA is still still looking into the safety of e-cigarettes and warns they may lead young people to use regular cigarettes.
