    Let's ban it! Quick!

     

    If we still have time and funding maybe we'll investigate whether or not it's dangerous. But that's not really important.

    I think the goal is to reduce tobacco caused disease. E-cigs have no tobacco, and so no tobacco by-products (tars). You'd think we'd want to *encourage* e-cigs.

    I agree. A little nicotine addiction is better than a lot of lung-cancer.
