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.

Electronic Cigarettes Would be Restricted to Certain Pharmacies reports Saudi-un-ny.net

The European Commission have recently made a proposal that e cigarettes that contain four milligrams or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee came out with a decision to classify all e cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. They believe that classifying electronic cigarettes as medicines would compel the brands to undergo a costly and protracted authorization process before delivering it to users. Hence, only tested products would be allowed to advertise as TV commercials. This decision, as a result, has left electric cigarette users in a state of confusion as they believe that the battery operated devices were the ones that helped them to kick the habit of smoking.

New E-Cigarette Store Takes the Smoke Out of Smoking

The FDA is still working on regulations but warns on its website that e-cigarette safety has not been studied and that it is unknown whether the high-tech smoke lures young people to tobacco. That is the dance we are really talking about. Smoking companies are clearly positioning e-cigarettes as healthier. At an investor conference last month, Lorillard CEO Murray Kessler said regulation of e-cigarettes depends on how the FDA embraces the potential for harm reduction …

Electronic cigarettes could rekindle battles over smoking in public

E-Cigarettes Gaining Popularity in Boston

Research released in late June by Italys University of Catania lends support to those claims. The study found that 13 percent of participants who used high-dose e-cigarettes quit smoking. Seventy percent of those who quit smoking eventually gave up e-cigarettes, too. As evidenced in this study, when people switch to electronic cigarettes, it absolutely makes it easier to quit nicotine use completely, said Michael Siegel, a professor at Boston University School of Public Health who studies e-cigarettes. Its not as simple as saying people are substituting one addiction for another. In fact, Siegel said the quit-rate for e-cigarettes is comparable to rates in other nicotine-replacement therapy studies. But others maintain that its not yet known how harmful vaping could be.

TV spots, radio jingles, banner ads none of these are meant to get us to rise out of our seats and run to the store. Instead, most advertising is meant to impress something upon us: an idea, a favorable opinion, a subtle memory of a brand name. As social media has gotten more sophisticated, however, a funny thing appears to have happened online: People with products to sell arent even bothering to call themselves advertisers. Instead, on Twitter, they open plain old accounts and start tweeting about the stuff they want to sell us.
