August 5, 2013

More and more cigarette smokers are taking a puff without ever lighting up. But just where they are allowed to take those puffs is still unclear....

It's a vapor! Not smoke. The PC police are really getting on my nerves.

There is absolutely no trace of any odor. Those batteries can be recharged for about nine months. All things considered (cigarettes are more than $50 a carton), this is a much less expensive option. There are cheaper brands. The addiction to nicotine is still there, but the coughing has stopped.

I've been using an e-cig since November. I used to get bronchitis twice a year at least when I smoked cigarettes and I haven't been sick at all since I switched to the e-cig. I also don't have to worry about second hand smoke. There's no smell and they are so much cheaper. I hadn't planned on quitting smoking and was just planning to use the e-cig in situations where smoking wasn't appropriate, but I haven't gone back to regular cigs. It's such a weight off my shoulders to not be smoking real cigarettes anymore. I typically don't use my e-cig in public places unless I'm really having a nic fit, but then I usually just blow the vapor down so I don't draw attention to myself. I feel it's a much healthier option and I love it!

You are still mainlining nicotine. Quit trying to fool yourself.

Asknot, where did you get your information? The FDA has yet to issue a statement about the compounds found in E-cigarettes. Ate you sure about your chemicals list? This is all I found: Water, nicotine, propylene glycol (also found in toothpaste), and flavor compounds.

Bottom line is that, as of now, it's not illegal to use these anywhere. Because it isn't illegal, NO ONE has the right to tell another person that they can't use one.

Read the signs/notices...they have the right to refuse service to anyone. That doesn't mean they have the right to tell a grown adult what they can and cannot do.

Try telling me I can't enter a business because of the color of my shirt or for something that's completely legal, asknot. I think it's pretty obvious where the ignorance lies. Enjoy your distorted little rainbow and unicorn filled bubble.

How about the numerous lawsuits and complaints about businesses across the country doing exactly what you say is true? One recent story comes to mind, where a business posted a sign forbidding baggy pants, backward hats, etc. and they were immediately attacked with suits and threats of suits. You are wrong.

You own the business, but run it as a public place, therefore, you don't have the right to deny others of their legal rights. Until laws are passed, and they will be eventually, you have no legal basis to tell someone they cannot use an e-cig in your establishment. Careful where you tread, asknot. I honestly don't want to see you sued for violating a person's individual liberties.

And if you look at court records across the country, you will find that much more often than not, courts are finding the businesses have discriminated in some way, and granting the "win" to the patron.

I'll wait until someone sues your tail off, then I'll come back to remind you of this convo.

If you and your "lawyer" actually did some research, you'd see the odds are statistically against you.
