Use e-cig tax for anti-smoking fight
Vineland Daily Journal
If the e-cig taxes were earmarked for anti-smoking programs, for instance, that might qualify as a legitimate public-health measure that deserves support.
Jonah Lagudem's insight:

Gov. Chris Christie wants to impose the same tax as tobacco cigarettes on e-cigs. I think that this is detrimental to the e-cig market because it will deter smokers to switch to a less harmful alternative.

E-cigarettes, e-Hookahs, and vaporizers are not regulated by any agency, so their safety and effectiveness has not been tested. Therefore, it is ...
Jonah Lagudem's insight:

This article shows that researchers are sure that electronic cigarettes do not contain all of the harmful chemicals that real cigarettes do, but are unsure of the long time effects of smoking an e-cig. Since e-cigarettes aren't regulated it's hard for researchers to conclude their health affects, and are unsure whether they should be classified as a tobacco product or not.

This article makes me a little upset because it states that E-Cigarettes have not been tested at all for their safety, but they have been, just not by government agencies. There is all kinds of false information about E-Cigarettes out there for this exact reason, and people soak it all up because they don't know how to properly do their own research.

I am worried alot about E-cigs. I heard somebody's dog ate one and instantly died on the spot. They should be banned immediately.

Health Groups Push Back Against E-Cig Bill
Health News Florida
Health groups are fighting a House measure that they claim will put tobacco products into teens' hands, the News Service of Florida reports.
Jonah Lagudem's insight:

This article says that a house committee in Florida is working to ban e-cigs to those under 18, which I think is bad. I think that people should be able to make their own choices and that e-cigarettes are not a tobacco product.

This video depicts an electronic cigarette igniting and exploding in a bar in Richmond, Virginia. I think this video is interesting and poses the question, are there other possible negatives to e-cigs?

Illinois General Assembly - Bill Status for HB2250

Illinois General Assembly - Bill Status for HB2250 | Electronic Cigarettes | Scoop.it
Bill Status - Illinois General Assembly
Jonah Lagudem's insight:

This is a bill that passed through the house that barred individuals under the age of 18 from purchasing electronic cigarettes in the state of Illinois. In the past, the sale of electronic cigarettes to all ages was discretion of the store operators. Now, you have to show a valid form of identification that shows a birth date proving that you are over the age of 18.
