Electronic Cigarettes — Let’s Think Before We Inhale

NJOY: The E-Cigarette That Aims To Snuff Out Smoking

From device to packaging, e-cigarettes are designed to look exactly like a traditional cigarette but without the harsh flavor or burning sensation when inhaled. This would seem to produce a greater likelihood of second use, third use, and so forth, setting the user on a faster path to addiction and guaranteeing sales for years. Flavoring the “e-juice” with cherry, peach and menthol creates direct appeal to children and adolescents. Clever advertising by the tobacco industry makes e-cigarettes the perfect bridge to other addictive substances including conventional cigarettes.

Thats why the former Surgeon General, Dr. Richard Carmona, is a member of our board. He fully understands, and believes in the harm reduction potential of e cigarettes. Like the other members of our board and executive team, he recognizes that the cigarette itself isnt the main problem, but the format of a combustion cigarette. MEB: That explains the rationale behind the electronic cigarette category as a whole, but how is NJOY different and preferable? AB: Most electronic cigarettes on the market cant deliver on this promise.

After spending years fighting to get these chemicals out of indoor environments and away from children, the United States seems poised to reintroduce them through the unregulated sale and use of electronic cigarettes. While they might offer a way for nicotine addicts to get their fix (and some researchers note that e-cigs themselves could be addictive), its not necessarily a safe way for them or anyone else. The FDA has no regulatory framework in place for handling them. Initially, it attempted to label them as unapproved drug/device combination products , arguing for a ban on imports from China in 2008. The decision was fought in court, allowing for the legal sale of electronic cigarettes, but the FDA still couldnt regulate them.

Health officials worry about electronic cigarette push in Colorado

There are many active e-cigarette forums and Facebook pages. One website discussion in Colorado asks if people can “vape” in casinos in the mountain gambling town of Blackhawk and advertises meet-ups where fellow “vapors” can connect. Since e-cigarettes are not a tobacco product, companies can get around 42-year old laws that ban cigarette advertising.

Derby, R-Owasso, is chairman of the House Public Health Committee and will oversee the studies. An e-cigarette is an electronic inhaler that vaporizes a liquid nicotine solution, simulating the act of tobacco smoking. Like cigarettes, users get a nicotine fix. Unlike cigarettes, there is no smoke. During the final days of the Legislature’s last session, the House rejected a bill backed by Jackson to deal with the same issue on a 66-29 vote after nearly three hours of questioning and debate. At issue in the interim studies is how the devices are taxed and how their sales are regulated.

E-cigarette regulation and taxes once again on the front burner at the Capitol

California NORML is urging the Assembly to reject SB 648on the grounds that vaporizers offer a proven, beneficial harm reduction substitute for medical marijuana users by reducing exposure to harmful smoke toxins while at the same time posing no second-hand smoke hazard to the public. Vaporizers are designed to eliminate the respiratory hazards of smoking by eliminating the combustion that produces the smoke. Regular pipes and cigarettes produce carcinogenic tars, particulates and other smoke toxins that are a byproduct of burning leaves. Vaporizers dont produce these toxins because they dont burn anything, but rather evaporate an underlying solution or preparation of nicotine, cannabis, etc. at much lower temperatures. Laboratory studies sponsored by California NORML have shown that vaporizers can effectively eliminate carcinogenic tars, benzene, naphthalene, toluene, and other respiratory toxins from inhaled marijuana.

NOT BLOWING SMOKE Electronic cigarettes are hot items for smokers

3D Vapor

Since it hit the market, sales have tripled each year since. Last year it reached $500 million; this year they are predicting $1 billion dollars in sales. Put simply, an e-cig is an alternative to conventional cigarette smoking, where the smoker, or vaper, inhales from an electronic device that vaporizes a liquid solution into an aerosol mist. The mist is sweet-smelling and not harmful to those nearby. The electronic cigarette contains nicotine, just as smoking cessation patches and gum do. Every bar around here lets you use them inside, and just about every restaurant we have encountered has had no problem with it, Dan said.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

Critics worry that the devices and the components of their associated vapor are “untried, untested and unknown,” in the words of Stella Bialous, president of the San Francisco consulting firm Tobacco Policy International. In the California Senate, lawmakers recently approved a bill that would ban vaping from every place smoking is already prohibited. The measure awaits discussion in the Assembly. UCLA has already taken that step, outlawing e-cigarettes on April 22, the same day it shut out their smoky cousins. The laws would prevent vapers like 30-year-old Alexis, a Vapor Spot customer who did not want to share her last name because her family doesn’t know she ever smoked, from inhaling in her acting classes.

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

In early July, the FDA said that it would issue proposed rules on unspecified “tobacco products” in October. Those products are widely assumed to be e-cigarettes, which a 2010 court decision allows the agency to regulate. The FDA declined to comment on the timing or contents of its planned “deeming regulations” for e-cigs, which are gaining popularity because they are perceived as being less harmful than traditional cigarettes.
