Are More Rules Needed Concerning E-Cigarettes?

By Ecigarettereviewed Posted August 31, 2012

Cigarettes Vs. E-Cigarettes E-cigarettes were designed to be an alternative to tobacco, but it seems like more and more people are having success using these products to quit smoking for good. You would think that the Food and Drug Administration would be scrambling to classify e-cigarettes as quit smoking devices, but that is not the case by any means. The FDA tried to have e-cigs classified as drug delivery devices, but they were unsuccessful. The FDA is currently trying to have electronic cigarettes classified as tobacco products.


Electronic cigarettes do not currently have any regulations or restrictions as to how the products can be made. There are also many states that do not have any laws regarding age restrictions to buy electronic cigarettes. Admittedly, more rules should be put into play concerning e-cigs.  The long term effects of smoking electronic cigarettes have has yet to be determined as the fad has just now caught on. Who knows? In the long run, electronic cigarettes could end up saving lives by helping people give up tobacco. Or electronic cigarettes could cause serious long term effects that folks are just not aware of yet.


Not all brands of electronic cigarettes are created equal. Some brands use more dangerous types of chemicals than other brands. Some brands such as V2 electronic cigarette and GreenSmoke invest more in safety measures such as cartridge batch testing, high manufacturing standards, and multiple-step quality controls, while other brands aren’t capable of going through these safety processes. Be on the safe side and research the various brands before trying them (top 10 e-cig reviews). You should be aware of what you are taking into your body. Electronic cigarette companies that use these dangerous chemicals should be required to include this information with their brand of electronic cigarettes.

    I tried E-cigs 7 mos ago and from the first day haven’t touched tobacco and dont want to….by the way I have been a smoker for 46 years and tried to quit several times in my life…E-cigs did it for me.

    I smoked on and off for a decade. I tried to quit twice from Black and Milds. They must have high nicotine or possibly how I inhaled every puff, because I couldn’t quit more than a day or so and my mom who encouraged me to quit would demand I smoke. I was just an a$$ to everyone.

    When I got my kit in the mail I had one cigar left in the pack. I used the the e-cig I just got and it wasn’t quite what I felt I needed, but it helped. 48 or so hours later I took a B&M drag (It was the last cigar in the pack and meant to be my last ever!) and it tasted different like it contained gasoline. I threw it away. My barely lit “last one that I could ever have” cigar. No regrets. It’s only day 11, but I’ve been feeling great. I have a small urge every once in a while, but I just think of the gas taste and problem solved. 11 days, but I know I can do this easily. The feeling that it wasn’t quite what I needed went away too.

    Also if you are worried about chemicals in e-juice, you can make your own with sealed bottles of FDA approved ingredients. It should come out to under a dollar a “pack” worth of liquid.
    Cigarette companies are going to go crazy trying to distort the truth. There has been an 8% switchover in France and we are showing the same pattern. Too long, sorry. Just excited. Have a great day!
