E-cigs and Attorney Generals

There has been something troubling me for quite some time. I have noticed an increase in the variety of flavored alcohol drinks. My past dictates that if you can’t drink it straight you don’t know how to drink.
The increase in the multitude of flavored vodkas and schnapps and even beers is quite impressive. There hasn’t been one attorney general who has objected to this marketing that will increase the consumption among young people.
Why is there an objection to the e-cig? This is something I cannot comprehend.
Are they so afraid that a few puffs from an e-cig will lead to a real tobacco cig? No really. The problem is that the e-cig may lead to not picking up a tobacco cig and it helps those who want to quit smoking. There is a pharmaceutical company that may lose money-the producers of the nicotine patch and gum etc. That who is real big lobby behind this interest in the regulation of e-cigs.

I would also like to comment on the real dangers of drinking. A person can die the first time they pick up a drink. A person who has a couple of drinks can get into a car and even being under the “legal” limit be less alert and the chances of having an accident are increased. A very inexperienced drinker doesn’t have the ability to respond to this new feeling of drunkenness which increases the chances of a fatal accident.
A youthful drinker partaking of these innocuous flavored beverages will know how much they have drunk and may die from alcohol poisoning.

Just to throw this in the chances of dyeing from a few puffs of maryjane is greater than smoking a whole cigarette…yeap….call me loony, but the facts are the facts. Mind altering alcohol or drugs are more dangerous than a cigarette for young people.

If a youth has a couple of puffs off a cig their chances of dyeing that evening are zilch. It takes years for these corrosive sticks to induce death.

I do believe the priorities of attorney generals are a little comical. Are they really trying to protect the youth or just their ability to get campaign funds from the big pharma and adult beverage lobby. You think about these things please.
