  •  e-cigs are miraculous (7+ / 0-)

    they should definitely be studied further, but they should absolutely be allowed for person use by as many smokers as humanly possible and as soon as possible. it would be good to know if the vapor containing the 'atomized' nicotine is in any way harmful itself - does it contain unmetabolized nicotine that others nearby could be unintentionally inhaling? does it clog or harm the lungs or air passages in any way? these would be useful questions to study and get answers for. but there is little question at this point that e-cigs are 1) less harmful than smoking and 2) effective at helping people reduce/quit smoking.

    people in a rush to ban them or make them difficult to access are pretty much advocating a pro-cancer stance. which is, of course, reprehensible.
