Retailers also are required to sell e cigarettes from behind the counter so that it’s harder for minors to get their hands on them.
E cigarettes are battery powered fake cigarettes. They contain no tobacco, require no combustion and, after exhaustive health studies, appear to cause no physical harm compared to real cigarettes, at least.
You can’t even call their use “smoking.” Some users call it “vaping” for the vapor the devices create by heating up a liquified nicotine mix. When puffed and exhaled, the white, misty vapor resembles smoke like your breath on a cold day.
By duplicating the rituals of smoking, the devices are designed to help wean users off the nasty habit.
I understand how that works. Although I am too cheap to buy an e cig and the nicotine patch didn’t work for me, I alternate between nicotine chewing gum and a nonelectric nicotine inhaler prescribed by my doctor.
Unfortunately, I must confess, I am still addicted to nicotine, although through my inhaler and the gum. Don’t worry about it, says my doctor, echoing other health experts. Even if the research is still inconclusive on the health risks of nicotine substitutes, anything is better than falling back into the grip of tobacco.
So what’s the problem?
It is easy to see how protecting impressionable youths from the lethal lure of demon tobacco. Nine in 10 start smoking as teens, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Stopping teen smoking is a cause that is tough for politicians to resist, even when the dangers of e cigs are not entirely clear or present.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took up former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s crusade against tobacco and other potential health hazards, including e cigarettes, even if they only look like a health hazard.
How far, Emanuel nobly asked, are elected officials willing to go to protect children from addiction? Well, gee, when you put it that way, what politician is not going switch immediately into a better safe than sorry mode?
Since 2009, when the first e cigarette bills were introduced, 25 states, the District of Columbia and numerous municipalities, including Evanston, have passed measures defining and regulating e cigarettes.
All of those states restrict sales of e cigarettes to minors and most require identification for in person and online transactions.
Fine. I am completely in favor of keeping these smoking devices out of the hands of underage users. Our young people have enough dangerous temptations around them.
E-cigarettes are on the rise: do you smoke or vape?
From The Presidents
Those are their legislative faults by dirty politics from brainless politicians with their dull muslims and islam as a poison to end their own nation by wars like in the stupid arabian story.
All mosques must be built on their islamic localizations, Not in the free public places.
Remember the first islam is Not loud because the prophet prays without loudspeaker.
Now their brainless egoistic muslims like to push with hard ways, like to influence as the evil characters, like to poison the pure soul & mind, just to make propaganda for dirty politics by sorrow, fear & terror everywhere.
All noisy mosques must be removed and placed at the different localizations or sell mosques for building more productive things like farms, office or houses because the religions are poisons from the past egos to spoil the open minded people and the real actual truth.
Better muslims to become Atheist with realistic lives & freedom rather than living in a lie from arabian wrong past stories made by their tyrant’s egos from primitive life.
Destroy the evil circles by ending the troublemakers behind it.
Destroy the dead islamic circles from the past sorrow on their hell arabian deserts.
You will see the better future lives outside the dead islam.
And that is simple just Stop your islamic sorrowful prayers like a crying baby.
Choose the white future, not the past.
