E-cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, or e-cigs are rapidly growing and sweeping the globe. They eliminate tobacco, tar, and smoke consumption. Basic e-cigarettes consist of a battery and cartomizer (cartridge) which contains a heating element. The heating element vaporizes e-cigarette liquid delivering nicotine if you wish and simulates "smoking".
The FDA is considering a ban on online sales of electronic cigarettes, as part of a package of regulations the agency is readying for the increasingly popular devices.
Halo Cigs's insight:
This has been the hot topic since it broke last night. This would change things drastically for everyone. From suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers, to all you vapers out there. We'll see what happens, whether this is speculation or true. All we know for sure is FDA regulations are coming.
Two or three years ago, e-cigarattes were exotic. These strange sticks, their ends LED-lit and their owners expelling odorless smoke - "It's vapor!" - would look as futuristic as a Replicant's food injector.
