NJOY: The E-Cigarette That Aims To Snuff Out Smoking

Governor Chafee vetoes e-cigarette ban for those under 18 R.I. The American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, and other health advocacy groups, had called on Chafee to veto the measure. They said the bill represented a stalking horse for tobacco and e-cigarette companies that want to exempt the growing industry from the regulations and taxes imposed on traditional tobacco-based products. They also warned that federal regulators are still studying the potential health risks of the relatively new technology . Introduced by Senate Majority Leader Dominick Ruggerio, D-North Providence, the bill would have defined e-cigarettes and other related products as vapor products. Nine states, including Vermont and New Hampshire, have simply included them in their definition of tobacco products. R.J.

Sherman man’s e-cigarette explodes while charging

The closer we get to this goal, the closer we get to making combustion cigarettes redundant. MEB: If we take your argument to its logical conclusion, wouldnt you be making your own product obsolete?

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

The problem is that little is known about the precise dangers of being in the same space as a vaper indulging their e-habit. Bialous says few studies have been done, and they were small and focused on a few brands. Personal vaporizers, and the “juice,” which is liquid laced with nicotine, in them, are so different from one another that the emissions of one may not match those of another.

Electronic cigarettes gain popularity in our area

Electronic cigarette retailer ECigaretteDirect.co.uk says hundreds of jobs could be lost if the EU is successful in imposing tighter regulation on products containing nicotine. The Swansea based firm which itself employs 14 people at its distribution centre and high street stores, has joined a growing Europe wide lobby against a Brussels proposal to class e-cigs as medicines in the same way as nicotine gums and patches which help smokers quit. E-cigarettes contain nicotine but vaporise waste products and manufacturers claim they are an alternative to standard tobacco cigarettes which produce damaging tar and smoke as well as help smokers cut down or quit.

Electronic cigarette firm joins fight against EU proposals

E-cigarettes face new restrictions

“Business is doing good. We’ve done a tremendous amount of sales since we lowered our prices from what they used to be, and more people are switching over to e-cigarettes,” Assistant Manager at Overstock eCigs, Bryce Drager said. The convenience of being able to smoke indoors is also a huge plus for some customers. “We’ve got plenty of people that, ‘oh, yeah, you know, I can go out and now I don’t have to leave all my buddies behind while I go out and have a cigarette,'” Gill said. But, some smokers said they wouldn’t feel comfortable using their electronic cigarettes indoors because for them it doesn’t seem acceptable.

FDA to now begin investigating e-cigarettes

In the end, a one-pack-per-day light cigarette smoker will spend about $25 per month vaporing, compared to about $150 per month smoking. I wanted a way to wean myself off cigarettes, she said, adding that nicotine patches was one option. She decided against patches because e-cigarettes allow her to still inhale and exhale, retaining that oral fixation associated with cigarettes. After I quit smoking, I really will be clean and sober, she noted.

Electronic cigarettes sprout on Boston shelves

The three big US tobacco companies, buffeted by decades of declining sales, have entered a national e-cigarette market already awash in independent purveyors. The smaller companies have typically hawked their wares online, promoting them using lower-budget social media, such as Twitter and Facebook. Many health advocates worry that with big tobaccos deep pockets, the marketing will become more aggressive, and even more youth-oriented, creating a young generation of e-cigarette smokers hooked on nicotine before researchers fully understand what risks the products may pose.
