In case you haven't heard of them, an e-smoke, or e-cig is an electronic cigarette. It basically vapourizes nicotine, and Propylene Glycol (common food additive, and the ingredient that makes vapour in fog machines). The user can smoke it like a real cigarette and satisfy the physical craving for nicotine.

I have been a 30+ cigarette per day smoker for the past 20 years. I recieved my first e-cig in the mail today, and I am astonished as to how well it works. I only had 2 regular cigarettes today, and I didn't even really need them. I just smoked them to compare. I haven't done that in over 20 years!

But once again, Big brother is going to tell me what's best for me.
So today, Health Canada made this announcement:

"Health Canada is advising Canadians not to purchase or use electronic smoking products, as these products may pose health risks and have not been fully evaluated for safety, quality and efficacy by Health Canada."
"Persons importing, advertising or selling electronic cigarette products in Canada must stop doing so immediately."

They have already been banned in Australia, there is an export ban in China (where they are ALL manufactured as of now), and the FDA is eyeing them now as well..

I believe there to be a way bigger conspiracy behind this...

Are tobacco cigarettes not a nicotine device? How come they can be sold without FDA approval? There are over 4000 cancer causing chemicals in a cigarette. Maybe it has something to do with the billions of dollars in tax revenue? Big tobacco won't let this happen?

I know many of you are probably not addicted to nicotine, but this is a real problem for me. For the first time in 20 years, I have awoken without a cigarette! I also bought one for my dad, who is a 50 year smoker, and he seems to really like it too.

Now we are worried that the Government will not let us buy or use these fantastic products! :( I put an order in with my distributer for a few months supply of nicotine cartridges. Hopefully he can come through.
