Still thinking about this electronic cigarette thing and how the Powers the Be are seemingly determined to undermine it. Here’s a few ideas:
SCENARIO ONE: An American company forms an alliance with the Chinese manufacturers of the electronic cigarette, they build a manufacturing facility in the U.S. This not only creates a substantial number of jobs in a new technology, it decreases cancer and other smoking-related illness, and healthcare costs also decrease since the bottom falls out of that portion of healthcare expenses, and it helps American economy woes. That’s not just a win-win. That’s a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN.
SCENARIO TWO: (in lieu of scenario one). The large discount stores and outlets order electronic cigarettes in bulk, which helps negate shipping costs from China, and that savings can be passed to consumers, just like they do it for all their other products.
The objections raised against eCigs are unfounded, and often downright lies. There are murmurings that propylene glycol might be dangerous to inhale. If that’s true, then they need to ban the fog machines in all dance clubs and Broadway shows, and rock concerts, because that’s what the fog is made from. And besides, if there is any question about the safety of propylene glycol as a suspension solution for the flavors and or nicotine in the juice, then vegetable glycerin can be used instead. It’s considered organic. And from my own personal experience, it also produces more vapor and has a slightly sweet flavor. Combine that with my favorite chocolate mint ejuice flavor, and I’m a happy camper.
And nicotine. There is no evidence to suggest that nicotine, in this form is any more dangerous than the caffeine in coffee. We are so accustomed to understanding nicotine in relation to cigarettes and tar and all the carcinigens and toxins that exist in that form, that we might be overlooking the fact that it became part of an evil combination that is no longer applicable in the form of eCigs.
SO. What’s the problem?
