Health officials worry about electronic cigarette push in Colorado

As a matter of public policy, electronic cigarette laws should mirror tobacco product laws, not circumvent them, Chafee said. Other bills vetoed by Chafee on Wednesday would have let municipalities raise taxes on low-income, government-subsidized housing, and increased required public-reporting by the states quasi-public agencies. Chafee did not heed all calls for a veto. For example, he rejected pleas from the states auto insurers to veto a bill telling them when they can and cannot declare a damaged vehicle a total loss, that was a priority of the states politically connected auto-body shop industry. (Leading the industrys fight again this year was the sister/law partner of the former senior deputy majority leader in the House.) Sponsored by Rep. Arthur Corvese, D-North Providence, the new law prohibits an insurer from declaring a motor vehicle a total loss if the cost to restore the vehicle is less than 75 percent of its fair market value before it was damaged.

The study found that 13 percent of participants who used high-dose e-cigarettes quit smoking. Seventy percent of those who quit smoking eventually gave up e-cigarettes, too. As evidenced in this study, when people switch to electronic cigarettes, it absolutely makes it easier to quit nicotine use completely, said Michael Siegel, a professor at Boston University School of Public Health who studies e-cigarettes. Its not as simple as saying people are substituting one addiction for another. In fact, Siegel said the quit-rate for e-cigarettes is comparable to rates in other nicotine-replacement therapy studies. But others maintain that its not yet known how harmful vaping could be.

Electronic cigarettes: No smoking, but lots of fuming

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

Vapers argue that the emissions from a few ingredients must be cleaner than the thousands of charred chemicals flowing from the average cigarette. Critics worry that the devices and the components of their associated vapor are “untried, untested and unknown,” in the words of Stella Bialous, president of the San Francisco consulting firm Tobacco Policy International. In the California Senate, lawmakers recently approved a bill that would ban vaping from every place smoking is already prohibited.

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers kick the traditional habit?

E-cigarettes are unregulated by the US Food and Drug Administration, making it difficult for consumers to know how much nicotine or other chemicals they may be inhaling. The agency has announced its intention to regulate the products as tobacco but has not provided a time frame. Regulation would subject the products to the same standards and scrutiny as conventional cigarettes. Manufacturers contend e-cigarettes are safer because they do not contain tar, which has been linked to lung cancer, and do not have a flame. Regulators point to the potential long-term dangers of inhaling vaporized nicotine and other chemicals.

E-smokes rising: Sales skyrocket for ‘healthier’ nicotine fix
