Electronic cigarettes gain popularity in our area

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. “I try not to go ahead and smoke it indoors.

Electronic cigarette firm joins fight against EU proposals

Regal Cigs Reveals Vaping Celebrities

05_Flatbed_WEB - SEPTEMBER

ECigaretteDirect.co.uk co-founder James Dunworth buys his products from China where they are made under licence and distributes them through an online site and a high street store. He said: Classing e-cigarettes as medicines will destroy businesses such as ours as the tests required will cost about 1m per product and we have 30 different flavours. It just would not be viable. E-cigs are used by people who want to quit smoking but many just want a healthier alternative.

E-cigarettes face new restrictions

In 2009, the FDA warned consumers about potential health risks after analyzing nicotine cartridges from two leading brands. One sample was found to contain diethylene glycol, a toxic chemical used in antifreeze. Several other samples were found to contain carcinogens, including nitrosamines. 21 Century Smoking imports the majority of its liquid nicotine from China and lists the ingredients on the companys web site.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

E-cig sellers jockey for market position before FDA issues regulations

FOR THE RECORD: E-cigarettes: An article in the July 6 Saturday section about the debate over the use of electronic cigarettes omitted the first name of John “JJ” Jenkins, owner of the Vapor Spot in Westwood. Vapers argue that the emissions from a few ingredients must be cleaner than the thousands of charred chemicals flowing from the average cigarette. Critics worry that the devices and the components of their associated vapor are “untried, untested and unknown,” in the words of Stella Bialous, president of the San Francisco consulting firm Tobacco Policy International. In the California Senate, lawmakers recently approved a bill that would ban vaping from every place smoking is already prohibited. The measure awaits discussion in the Assembly. UCLA has already taken that step, outlawing e-cigarettes on April 22, the same day it shut out their smoky cousins.

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

That would follow TV ads by two of its leading competitors, Njoy and Blu (the latter was bought by Lorillard last year). Both radio and TV are off-limits to traditional cigarette ads. “We’re supposed to start a campaign by the end of the year,” Alelov said of Logic’s TV push.

EU vote on electronic cigarettes ‘makes no sense’

Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit. By Martin Banks in Brussels 4:18PM BST 14 Jul 2013 The vote was intended to make tobacco smoking less attractive to young people through mandatory warnings, minimum pack sizes, and rules on flavourings. However, the revision of the EU ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ would classify most e-cigarettes as a medicinal product, despite the fact that in the UK alone 25 percent of all attempts to kick the habit are made using e-cigarettes, making them the most popular aid. The European Commission had proposed that e-cigarettes containing 4 milligrammes or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee went further, voting to classify all e-cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit.

Wirral MEP vows to fight for e-cigarette users

COLUMN – On Twitter, dubious health claims from e-cigarette bots

And Mr Davies joined other Lib Dem MEPs as well as Conservative and UKIP members to vote against the change while Labour voted in favour. He said: In an ideal world no-one would be addicted to nicotine but we dont live in an ideal world and it is better to vape than to smoke. “E-cigs are a potential game changer in the fight against tobacco because smokers find them enjoyable to use. They can help people break their addiction in a way that conventional nicotine replacement therapies will never do. They could save millions of lives.

Evaps Launches the New Vapor Intelligent e Cigarette

Manufacturers can, according to the study, “make unrestricted advertising appeals, provided they do not market their products as smoking cessation devices.” In an analysis of over 73,000 tweets from a two-month period in 2012, the authors concluded that nearly 11 percent of “commercial” tweets touted cessation as one of the benefits of e-cigarettes, with a potential reach of 7.4 million Twitter users. These tweets were not part of Twitter’s advertising program, but they were not organic either. The authors concluded that the Twitter accounts were commercial in nature; that is, they touted websites and resellers of e-cigarette products, along with the cessation claims that e-cigarette sellers are supposed to be barred from making. (I first learned of the research when I moderated a panel that included study co-author Dr. Sherry Emery, at a conference put on by social data company Gnip.) The FDA must sign off on claims of smoking cessation because, quite simply, they have to establish the efficacy and health trade-offs of the cessation devices themselves. Mini cigars, or even full-size ones, for example, could be pushed as cigarette smoking cessation devices, but there’s obviously a less than positive health benefit to trading one for the other.

Vapor shops growing in popularity in SWFL

“Unlike tobacco smoke, the vapor dissipates very quickly,” he says. “It looks like it’s probably very minor risk.” However, there is a social risk, Bialous points out, in that vapers drawing on stick-like objects and puffing out a smoke-like substance looks a lot like smokers, and may serve to normalize the habit again. Might kids be attracted to a product enjoyed by the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio? “So far, there is no evidence that kids find this particularly cool,” Siegel says, though that “could change.” Even when it’s technically allowed, some e-cigarette users avoid vaping in social situations. “I just don’t feel comfortable going into public places and vaping, because it looks like you’re smoking,” says Brian Worthy, owner of the Vapor-Mart in Los Angeles. He doesn’t want to upset bystanders, so he vapes only indoors at his home or store.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

e-cigarette legislation Antismoking groups push for veto of R.I. Instead they are calling for a veto. On July 1, two days before the General Assembly ended its 2013 session, state lawmakers passed a bill prohibiting persons under the age of 18 from using or purchasing e-cigarettes and other vapor products that heat liquid nicotine into a smokable vapor. But a coalition that includes some of Rhode Islands largest health advocacy groups calls the bill 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.

“We’re hoping that he’s going to do this for a couple months and maybe get off the vapor and the cigarettes,” he added. For now, hoping is all he may be able to do. The Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida says there’s really no concrete data E-Cigs will help people quit smoking. “We don’t really know for sure what the content of this particular E-Cigarettes often are we don’t know what’s in them” said Brendan Donohue, Tobacco Prevention Specialist with the Florida Department of Health.

Cigarette smoking at new low among youths, survey finds

A look at the evidence behind outdoor smoking bans

Cigarette smoking hit the lowest point ever recorded among American eighth-graders and high school sophomores and seniors last year, a newly released report shows. Last year, only 5% of high school sophomores said they had smoked cigarettes daily in the previous 30 days, compared with 18% of sophomores who were smoking daily at one point in the 1990s. The numbers have also plunged for eighth-graders and high school seniors, hitting their lowest point since the surveys began. The change is just one of the findings in a vast new report on the well-being of American children, compiled by the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics.

None of the products that http://www.vaporjedi.com sells are intended as a solution to quit smoking, though some people find these products can be used as a replacement solution to kick unwanted habits.

Unlike a cigarette, you don’t actually burn anything and pretty much all you inhale is a bit of water vapor and the flavor of your choice. Everything from chocolate, to fruit, to bacon, to tobacco, you can get eJuice in pretty much any flavor you can imagine.” Vapor Jedi’s line of Canadian eJuice with nicotine or without is available exclusively on the new website.
