Missouri Governor vetoes bill that would classify e-cigs as non-tobacco

Missouri Governor vetoes bill that would classify e-cigs as non-tobacco

missourigreatseal

I briefly talked about the Missouri bill on vaping and e-cigs here. At that time I thought it was just another bill that would ban sales to minors. However the bill also contained a clause that would classify e-cigs and vaping as non-tobacco products. Because of that clause Missouri Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the bill.

Again, you would think that public officials that are always saying how…

This article shares some interesting facts (FACTS!) about propylene glycol which a lot of ecig users know, but which the anti-ecig folks always seem to overlook, that being that PG has been used for well over 50 years as an AIR SANITIZER in hospitals, food establishments, and other places due to its antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Just gotta rant sometimes
Overall I try to be a positive person.  Whether that be here, or in my normal day to day life.  I’m an optimist and I do believe that people have the overwhelming ability to do good things. 
With that said.  Here is a rantI subscribe to many news outlets, with keywords like VAPING or ECIGS or ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES.  I like to know what is going on in the world of vaping.  Whether that is positive, negative or otherwise. 
One word i’m sick to death of hearing is “HIP”  ”ecigs are a hip alternative”  ”Vapers are trying to be hip, but is it safe?”  ”Hip new trend of vaping” HIP HIP HIP HIP HIP.  
Let me tell you what we are not.  We are NOT trying to be hip, or trendy or cool.  I’ve personally never been HIP, TRENDY, or COOL, nor do I aspire to be HIP, TRENDY or COOL.  I’m certainly not crossing my fingers that vaping will finally let me attain the status of “Hip”  in the eyes of the general public. 
I’ll tell you what we ARE though.  We are adults trying our damnedest  to get away from tobacco.  We are part of a community, a support group, a family.  We have found an amazing tool to help us in our journey. That tool is a battery, an atomizer, and some liquid.  
I don’t want to be “hip” I don’t want to be “cool”  I don’t want to drown children in barrels of poison.  I simply don’t want to smoke.  And you mainstream media, you don’t want to make that easy for me.

I had no idea ecigs were hip or cool.  I thought they were considered a desperate last resort on the part of us people who are too stupid to know smoking is bad for you and do it anyway.
And are dumb enough to enjoy it and not really want to quit an addiction, when it’s fairly well known that being addicted to a thing is considered bad.  
I don’t really care if people consider cool or uncool.  All I know is that I’ve quit smoking tobacco and that’s good for me.  I know that the chemicals in Ecigs are considered safe and some have been (in the case of propylene glycol) since 1948.
This too, shall pass, and the nanny state (both parties, for those of you who want to tell me it’s the other side) will tell me what I can and cannot do with my own body again.
Then again, in 20 years (or more.  or less.) a study might come out telling me that ecigs will kill me just as nastily as tobacco would have.
And that’s okay.  Because at least I tried to get away from something I know is harmful by trying something I was fairly sure was less harmful.  At least I did what I could to deal with an addiction I didn’t know how to break (and wasn’t sure I wanted to).  
I’d rather be a guy who tried and died than a guy who just gave up and accepted that he was slowly killing himself.
I may not be strong enough or have enough desire to break my nicotine habit, but at least I tried to use something that I’m fairly sure won’t poison me and everyone I know.  
As for the risk?  People take risks all the time.  Crash diets.  Pills to change their metabolism.  Getting blind drunk.  A hundred thousand ways to hurt yourself, poison yourself and probably hurt others in the process, but there is less negative media coverage given to those things than is being given to ecigs.  Of course, not too many years ago, there were lots of news stories about why it was unhealthy to drink at all (now debunked) and why diet pills will kill you and make you fatter (dunno if this one is still true or not), how caffeine is terrible for you (now debunked) and how drinking tap water will mutate you into a Ninja Turtle (still holding out hope).
I’m going to stick with ecigs and keep hoping that I have found the gateway to beating my addiction - or, at the very least, get away from the addictive substance I know is a deadly poison.
Judge me if you will.  I’m okay with that.

Um…duh? I don’t really understand why people who don’t take the time to research what they’re “arguing” about even bother to post this crap. Seriously, talk to us…a LOT of us will tell you, WE DON’T MIND BEING ADDICTED TO THE NICOTINE! It’s no more harmful than caffeine, and truthfully, I think I take in a lot less nicotine than some people do caffeine…

We KNOW nicotine is addictive and guess what? WE LIKE IT! We like the boost it gives to our focus and concentration, we like that fewer people who use nicotine end up with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, we like that it improves brain function and helps with memory…

Those of us who are NOT trying to “quit” are just glad to be rid of the 1000s of toxic chemicals present in regular cigarettes and happy with the fact that we can reap the benefits of nicotine without the carcinogens. 

We don’t all want to quit.

That article was pretty neutral.  Not ALL people know what they’re getting into before they start.

Honestly, I’m sure most people know the side effects of nicotine but the long-term saftey of e-cigs still isn’t known.  As a general rule, that can be a dangerous thing.

Yes, it’s still safer than cigarettes because you could probably name 99% of the things on this earth and they would still be less harmful than cigarettes.  It’s not a great argument.

The issue is that nicotine has side effects that don’t only affect you.  They affect the people around you too.  It increases your blood pressure which may be fine NOW but when you get older, it’s going to be a major problem.  It also can calm you for a moment but when you get super irritated, it’s noticeable and it’s awkward.  While secondhand vaping may be less harmful than secondhand smoking, YOU are still making a decision about what I’M breathing.  While you may consider the ingredients safe for inhaling, not much has been done to study them and I honestly prefer to know the health effects before I make a decision.  Too bad it’s not my decision, right?  I mean, not ALL people want to quit!  How selfish of me to look after my own health.

Seriously, the more I read about these, the more I hate them.  I made a vow at 8 years old that I would never love somebody who smoked cigarettes but this e-cig stuff came at me out of nowhere.  And now I’m left trying to figure out what the heck I’m supposed to think or do about something I don’t know about but can’t stop.

It’s fucking irritating.  People who use e-cigs aren’t the only ones affected.  I’d like more say in what might harm me and my future family.

I work in a hospital and I actually DO know what research has been done on them, including the fact that the vapor that I exhale dissipates before it goes anywhere. It’s also less toxic than some perfumes, ALL auto emissions, smog, the chemicals in your shampoo, and so many other things.

Other than the nicotine, the ingredients in ecigs are in your toothpaste, your food, your cosmetics, your deodorant…

Do some research.

Anyone wanna lay odds that some numbskull, somewhere in this “progressive” world of ours will claim to have gotten lung cancer from second-hand e-smoke?

A ~huge~ part of all the Smokers-are-Evil-Incarnate Outrage has to do with it being considered a “sin” that only dirty people engage in.

I don’t think smokers are evil, but smoking anything is something I would never do.

Additionally, the smell of cigarette smoke, regular, menthol, or clove. Bugs the hell out of me. I can smell weed in a sealed plastic bag in someone’s pocket. Even if it’s not skunk weed.

I’m not begrudging people’s right to smoke. But I definitely would ask house guests to not smoke inside my home.

We are not smoking…we are vaping. Ecigs. With water vapor. No smoke. It smells like fruit or candy. People at my office come by my desk and tell me how awesome it smells.

Interesting article…definitely worth a read. This is how misinformation continues to propagate!

The debate over electronic cigarettes has been heating up in California as a bill works its way through the government with hopes of making electronic cigarettes as restricted as conventional cigarettes.  A radio broadcast on Tuesday did a great job of capturing both sides of the debate.  But now it’s time to look at exactly whats wrong with what electronic cigarette opponents are saying to make the bill a reality.

I can’t believe this entire article LOL! When I first read through it, I thought it must be a very old article from when ecigs first came out. Nope, it’s from September 2013.

It’s unreal that articles are STILL citing that old, faulty FDA “study” that found antifreeze in ejuice.

It’s unreal that articles are still saying that “they don’t know what’s in ejuice.”

It’s unreal that articles are still saying that there are no studies supporting the use of ecigs.

It’s unreal to me that anyone in their right mind would say that vaping is worse than smoking regular cigarettes.

Yes, the ejuice industry probably needs regulations put in place for safety and manufacturing standards. Yes, more studies need to be done about potential health risks. 

BUT most vendors clearly disclose what is in their juice. AND studies HAVE been done, by MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS EVEN, supporting the benefits of ecigs compared with conventional cigarettes. 

Do journalists even bother to research anymore????
