Pretty much the only valid argument against vaping as smoking cessation (besides cloudchasers who like to crap up the pool by making a spectacle of themselves) is that there are no long-term studies to determine whether or not they are damaging in the long run. Well, the first long-term study is out, and of course, the news is good.

It's hard to imagine, these days, selling a product by calling it synthetic. "A lot of people kind of give you the weird eye," says Edward Uy, vice president at SQN, the first vaping company to debut liquids with lab-made synthetic nicotine. Every other tobacco product in human history, including virtually every other vaping liquid, makes use of natural nicotine from tobacco plants. But tobacco also happens to be, if anything, the prime example that natural is not necessarily better.

So, last month, the chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs wrote a sternly-worded request of the FDA for numbers and methods to which they arrived at their recommended regulations for electronic cigarettes. The committee's concerns are not just about the impact to public health, but also the economic ramifications of forcing so many small players out of the market.

Naturally, the FDA did not respond. So, Senator Ron Johnson wrote to them again, this time including a hard deadline of the 20th of this month, and this ominous warning:
If the FDA does not provide an adequate response to these inquiries, the Committee may be forced to resort to other means to compel the production of this information.

The chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee sent a strongly worded letter to the FDA demanding a full account of how they came to decide on the heavy-handed regulations recently presented, with specific focus to the economic impact of effectively shuttering a multi-billion dollar industry largely made up of small and cottage businesses, and the likelihood of unintended negative health effects by sending vapers back to tobacco. Popcorn after the jump.

It's no secret that vaping has a bad rap - from ludicrous misinformation campaigns by industries out to lose a buck to cloud-chasing hipster twats that have never smoked a day in their lives, e-cigarette use comes with a stigma or three... The Daily Dot took a trip to a vape convention recently to see what was what and got schooled on what vaping really is and what it really means.

Last week the UK's Department of Health signed off on vaping, calling it 95% less harmful than smoking - a governmental first on the planet. Time magazine just took notice and reports on the financial benefits as well.

Other governments are bound to follow suit. In a generation, when smoking tobacco is but a mere relic from a less-enlightened age, this will be considered a major turning point.

...and I couldn't have done it without vaping. Not only that, I couldn't have done it with a cigalike (an e-cig that's the shape and size of a traditional cigarette), it took moving up to the predecessor of the modern tank systems. If you vape to quit tobacco, do it right.

Derek Yach is arguably smoking's biggest, most powerful opponent - it was he who established and implemented the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, and he remains to this day a staunch and busy advocate of all things anti-tobacco.

In this week's cover feature for The Spectator, Yach discusses why there is so much mistrust and fear around electronic cigarettes while endorsing their efficacy in helping people quit smoking and improving their health.

For all the talk of big tobacco's e-cigarettes tasting like crap and not representing what consumers want, cigalikes have still made up the majority of the American electronic cigarette market. Until now.

Studies are showing that electronic cigarette use amongst Hawaii's 18-to-35 demographic is outpacing that of actual tobacco use. How appropriate that the tide is turning in Hawaii, yes?

...the first round of FDA regulation has begun. Proposed initial regs are pretty much common sense - manufacturing and labeling standards, age restrictions on purchase. What we're seeing here is the groundwork for future regulation, though, and where that goes... who knows.
