Ignorance of science from the "Nanny State" advocates is amazing.

Ever been in a steam room?
If the visible "Vapor" was smoke, you would have never left.

Not remotely the same thing, some people wont be happy, until people only use big pharm drugs, cause they're so safe.

Still safer than breathing in Feb in SLC.

First, it's 'Nanometers', not 'Manometers'. More correctly, nanometres. A nanometre is 1.0x10-9 metres.
SI nomenclature aside, I know people that use these things. I have no problem being in their presence. I cannot say the same about a cigarette smoker.

Keep your darn government hands off my e-cigarettes!

No more nanny government. If you don't want to smoke, then don't. But no more nanny government taking away freedom!

Know what's really so troublesome for the left on this issue? Taxes! Tobacco is very heavily taxed, e-cigs, not so much. So, libs, just get your never met a tax he doesn't love Obama to increase taxes on e-cigs and you can sleep at night.

I will support more nanny state e-cigarette laws for a hand full of people,

right AFTER the bigger problems of air pollution effecting all 1.5 million of us living along the Wastach front is addressed.

Yes, e-cigarette vapor contains nicotine. That is the whole point. It is like nicotine gum or patches. It can help wean people off regular cigarettes. That should be viewed as a good thing. As for other health concerns, researchers have found that with e-cigarettes there is no tar being inhaled, very little other particulate matter, and such low levels of other toxins which regular cigarettes have, that it is ridiculous to equate "vaping" with smoking cigarettes.

Microwave Popcorn is hazardous to your health. Why isn't there any warning on the pack. It's really true, more so than cigarettes. About the same as a whole pack of smokes to a small bag of pop corn, I guess it's 1 to 1.

e-Cigarettes are infinitely less annoying to be around and since you can dial down the nicotine in them little by little, they are easier to quit.
