Bad peddlers of adictive substances

http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/07/22...fda/index.html

Who wants to wager that the companies will be slapped with a big fine or if they'll be told not to sell E-cigarettes anymore?

Frankly, either those companies have bad lawyers, no lawyers or when their lawyers told them that their product fell under the definition of a combination drug-device product they responded by asking their lawyers how long they thought they could get away with selling it anyway until the FDA told them to stop.

I mean seriously, it never occured to them that their product had to be reviewed by the FDA for approval first?

you know what, I agree completely. Especially here in canada, its kind of retarded. But lets face it, those who smoke usually have people that care about em and would like to see em get better.

People will kill themselves regardless of what laws get put in place, Darwinism will always find a way to sort out the ones that shouldn't have been created. And someone will profit from it.

Re: Bad peddlers of adictive substances

To me the thing that is annoying about them is of course because they aren't actually cigarettes they peddle them like they aren't tobacco products (which technically they are not) combined with no public smoking laws applying to them. I love just walking through the mall and seeming an E-cigarettes kiosk with the guy puffing away on one trying to get everyone who walks by to buy them. I like our no smoking in public building laws here in Maryland, this falls in to the same catagory. If I wanted toxic fumes overwhelming me as I walk around I'd just ask them to rev up the display cars in the mall.

Re: Bad peddlers of adictive substances

Don't know much about this product, but does it emit a foul odor onto others? I could care less if people choose to smoke, but I care very much if it's near me or my family...and I'm sure I'm not alone. Also, if someone wants to smoke them, it's their life and they've been warned. Of course, I'm sure our new nationalized health plan will still take care of those people. Just another person that has become a burden on the taxpayer (and themselves).

Re: Bad peddlers of adictive substances

I don't know about foul odor, but just like smoking you exhale a big cloud of vapor from it...and since the FDA testing is showing that the cloud is just about as toxic as 2nd hand smoke, or at least contains plenty of poisons and carcinogens like 2nd hand smoke does...I don't want that crap breathed out all around me.

Re: Bad peddlers of adictive substances

I meant both...but the odor is more readily noticeable. And is very foul to me.
