    Only in Zion would we go into a tizzy about e-cigarettes. They produce water vapor instead of smoke. They do not contain the tar and other carcinogens and toxins of regular cigarettes. Could Mormons seriously ask that since they are absent of these unhealthy substances, do they violate the Word of Wisdom? And nicotine is not a good enough reason. Multi-millions are addicted to sugar.

    Coing down on E-Cigs is a joke. I was a long time smoker and developed lung cancer. Where are the controls for all of the poisons in cigarettes? Cigarettes can ge as addicting as cocaine and just as hard to get off of. The E-cig has helped me tremendously. There are exactly 160 posions in Cig's. And, nicotine only in an e-cig. Try the blue berry flavor.

    Just got back from Huntsman Cancer Center--and my lungs are still cancer free. So, if the government were to do anything smart they would put FDA guidelines on Cigarettes. That way they would ban them.

    One other note..there is a trace amount of nicotine in a tomato--so think about that the next time you have a tossed salad.

    What's the concern? People I know are weaning themselves off of cigarette smoking by using e-cigarettes.

    Why don't the parents and educators look before they leap? Sounds to me like there's a lot of guilt by association...not the smartest way to attach guilt. I vape zero nicotine e-cigs and enjoy the benefits about like I would a room deodorizer. Great aromas. Keeps my hands off the real thing.
