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?
Ingredients in an e-cig:
- Nicotine (Choose from 16mg cartridges to 0mg cartridges)
- Propylene Glycol
Ingredients in a tobacco cigarette:
Acids (other, 6)
Methyl ethyl ketone
Pyrazines (volatile) (18)
Urethane (Ethyl Carbamate)
E-smokes do not burn, smell, or produce any harmful second hand smoke (water vapour).
Which do you think is safer for us smokers? All of us for that matter.
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.
