Electronic Cigarette Users Unite to Send a Powerful Message to MEPs
“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. Many vapers aren’t particularly worried that their habit might be outlawed in public places. “I don’t think it will affect me too much,” says Lee Madeloni, a musician who was trying flavors in the Vapor Spot, not far from UCLA, on a recent afternoon. “I’m pretty respectful anyway.” He already avoids vaping when dining with others, for example.

E-cigarettes gain fans and critics
Writing to Matthias Groote MEP, the e-cigarette users state that they are genuinely concerned that proposals to regulate e-cigarettes as a medicinal product and to ban flavourings will effectively constitute a ban on a product they use as an alternative to deadly tobacco cigarettes, an opinion supported by the European Parliament’s own Legal Affairs committee. David Dorn an e-cigarette user from the United Kingdom said, “E-cigarettes are not a medicinal product and as users we do not see ourselves as ill or in treatment; we are not. Users do however enjoy the benefits of using nicotine, and nicotine when not combined with cigarette smoke is relatively harmless. I hope that MEPs will vote this week to either remove e-cigarettes completely from the Tobacco Products Directive or that they will ask the Commission to go away and do a lot more research, fund some unbiased studies and come back in two or three years and report on the situation at that time. Policy makers will then have a lot more information at their fingertips to make a decision that is not going to result in 700,000 lives per year being terminated early because MEPs voted to effectively ban e-cigs as they currently are from the market in Europe.” The key health benefit of e-cigarettes is determined by how many smokers switch to them or use them as a staging post to quitting completely.

He felt so strongly about the health benefits of the products that he started his own business making refill cartridges for the devices. Many people feel the way Sena does about the health benefits of e-cigarettes, claiming they can notice the difference in their personal health. However, e-cigarettes face critics. Melissa Watson, a Columbia health counselor, has witnessed different results when others pick up e-cigarettes. Watson, who works with smoking cessation courses at Palmetto Health Baptist, has dedicated a good portion of her career to helping people quit smoking. In her opinion, e-cigarettes might not be as helpful in the quitting process as some claim.
