    How obnoxious. I realize this discussion can be emotionally charged but let's be civil.

    I intentionally chose the term tobacco free because as you point out that is different than nicotine free. Actually Tobacco free is the first step to nicotine free and that's what these ecigs are doing - and in and of itself being Tobacco Free is a huge health improvement for me and countless others. For me it's fucking huge - and ecigs are the only reason I'm on my way.... wouldn't want anyone to take that away from me with legislation. Fairly reasonable on my part...

    I did "Educate Myself" and I'll live longer and healthier for it.

    Have a nice day...

    Perception is reality...

      ...unless you're nicotine free. Any idea where the nicotine in the e-cig comes from? I'm not saying it's purified from tobacco, but nobody except the companies know and they're not telling. Gotta wonder about any other nasty chemicals are hanging around from extracting or synthesizing nicotine that aren't being disclosed.
