Federal, state, and local government ALL need to figure out a way to tax them. Until all the various government entities get their "cut" of the action, they will be frowned upon including using them to stop smoking "approved" (and taxed)real cigarettes.

I understand the desire to protect the public's health, but please make an educated decision. The e-liquid used with e-cigs has 3 ingredients; nicotine, propylene glycol and glycerin--much safer than the 4000 known cancer causing chemicals in tobacco cigarettes! I switched from tobacco to e-cigs. My chronic cough is gone. No one complains about secondhand smoke because there is none. No fire. No smoke. The nicotine in e-liquid is the same as used in nicotine gum or the patch paid for by Medicare and Medicaid, and the flavorings (exhaled as a vapor) are food grade with a base of propylene glycol which is rated GRAS, generally regarded as safe). The flavoring found in many food products, the anti-smoking drug ZYBAN, toothpaste and asthma inhalers. You can visit reputable U.S. retailers like www.southbeachsmoke.com (where I buy) to see the listed ingredients of the e-liquid and educate yourself.
