LIRR is right to ban e-cigarettes - Editorial

LIRR is right to ban e-cigarettes - Editorial | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Until more health studies are done, the LIRR is wise to protect nonsmokers from the unknown effects of electronic cigarettes.
Halo Cigs's insight:

This article, like many, states that propylene glycol is used in deicers and antifreeze. Of course, it fails to mention all the common food and beauty products it is also used in that are consumed by the masses daily.

Are e-cigarettes healthier?

Are e-cigarettes healthier? | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly identified the agency that issued a statement warning that e-cigs have not been tested and second-hand emissions could be harmful.
Halo Cigs's insight:

Do more publishers of articles give the false impression in their headlines that e-cigarettes are healthier than actually sellers and manufacturers?

E-Cigarettes Aren't Just for Quitting: Imagining the Future of Smoking

E-Cigarettes Aren't Just for Quitting: Imagining the Future of Smoking | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Whether a smoker or not, you probably first call to mind negative associations; addiction, nicotine, cancer....

Via GolfKahn
Halo Cigs's insight:

What people think is negative is really a matter of personal opinion. Nobody is saying here, vape this. First it is an outcry about what is in e-liquid and e-cigs. Then there is an outcry about how does second hand vapor effect others? There are many articles that express opinion and not facts.

I will never understand why some places do not allow Vaping. There is no fire, no ash, no smoke(first hand or second hand) and no stink....  I don't get what the problem is.

Temple City considering zoning restrictions for e-cig shops

Temple City considering zoning restrictions for e-cig shops | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
TEMPLE CITY - City staff Tuesday urged the City Council to pass an ordinance that would place zoning restrictions on smoke and e-cigarette shops.
Halo Cigs's insight:

Putting zoning restrictions on e-cig and vape shops? With the country's economic climate, we should be promoting opening businesses and providing jobs instead of hindering it.

David Fleck (Lion)'s curator insight, July 19, 2013 1:02 PM

States and feds are making employees take furlow days because they can't afford to pay them. I do not understand why everyone wants to make it so hard on vape shops. That is just more taxes they could collect but they don't want our tax money.

Another View: States should consider e-cigarette policies

Another View: States should consider e-cigarette policies | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it
Electronic cigarettes have the potential to improve public health if adults use them instead of regular tobacco—but not if they end up hooking young people on nicotine.
Halo Cigs's insight:

Another article that states e-cigarettes are marketed towards children and young adults to get them addicted. I guess adults don't like flavored things.

So how are tobacco firms going to advertise e-cigarettes?

So how are tobacco firms going to advertise e-cigarettes? | E-Cigarettes | Halo Cigs | Scoop.it

It looks like doubles all round: ad agency execs are no doubt rubbing their hands in glee. Christmas may come early this year for some ad execs. Tobacco advertising is making an unexpected comeback. Not a misprint – ciggy firms are already plugging their wares on US television. It really is like going back in time.

Halo Cigs's insight:

Will they flood media with advertising causing outrage by the anti-smoking movement to leave the FDA no choice but to classify e-cigarettes as "tobacco products" to stop advertising?
