False fears preventing smokers from using e-cigarettes to quit

The toxic news media from the USA has unfortunately leaked across the pond and stoked fears into the hearts of smokers in the UK.  The UK Government and Public Health England once again has to remind it’s citizens, as John Newton, Director of Health Improvement at Public Health England said

E-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking, which causes 220 premature deaths a day in England. Our advice remains that for anyone who smokes tobacco, the most important thing is to stop smoking altogether and e-cigarettes can be an effective way to help smokers do that.

On behalf of the United States, I would like to apologize for our knee-jerk and misguided politicians spreading fear about vaping through the mainstream media.  It is actively causing harm and damage across the globe for smokers and vapers alike.

As vaping becomes more and more validated across the pond, the US just sinks further and further into “VAPE MANIA”.  Protect the children at all costs even if it means forcing adults to continue smoking combustable tobacco cigarettes. We allowed people to get sick and die from illicit and contaminated THC Carts just to drum up support for a flavor ban against legal nicotine vaping.  I legitimately feel foolish in the eyes of the world and I hope that common sense and science based legislation can find there way here sooner rather than later.  They Can’t run from the science forever.
