An interesting article regarding the e-cig rage and that the FDA is planning on regulating it.  I think it also mentions the nicotine issue rather than focusing in on tobacco solely.

This also becomes an issue with the start of the health care law re taxation on tobacco.

Worth a read.  IMO

That was on nat'l teevee news tonight. They didn't seem to have any hard evidence against e-cigs, so took the path that nicotine is habit forming and the e-cigs are a way to intro a "gateway drug" to youngsters, who like the watermelon flavorings. So this new steam-based smokable should be regulated by the FDA, they contend, tobacco or not, because nicotine is addictive. So are wars, apparently. The same news cast had a piece on dogs being shipped from Iraq to rejoin their vet masters here in the USA. So, see?, this whole fiasco had a warm and fuzzy upside. And they call this news. They didn't say whether the vet masters could find decent jobs now that they're home.

Country is turnin' to s**t. Gotta find a way to tax the hell out of anything they can. Better stock up while you can.

Got 50lbs+ pipe tobacco stashed.
Started e-cigs. Got off coffin nails. Take that tax man!
I'm waiting for the government to realize they can make easy money by taxing the fluid and licensing the manufacturers. That way only Big Tobacco can afford to make the e-liquid. Then people can suddenly be surprised about all of the extra chemicals in e-liquid that have suddenly appeared to make them more addictive. Big Tobacco can fill in for their decreasing cigarette profit, Big Pharmacy can come out with something new to get off of e-cigs, and the American Cancer Society can run ads against second hand vapor! Win-Win situation for everybody but us. We should all get off alcohol, tobacco, keep our money in our mattresses, drive only one car and live to be a hundred on the 'government's dollar'. Those people would be so happy with themselves! Maybe they'll run out of things that other people do to complain about and their stomach acids will shrivel them up.

Yup, they already started.  R J Reynolds is behind one of the e-cig co.  Whole lot cheaper making chemicals than growing tobacco.

Working on my stash monthly.  Already got it up to 12 pounds..planning on hitting at least 20 pounds for a decent cellar for a man my age.

" We should all get off alcohol, tobacco, keep our money in our mattresses, drive only one car and live to be a hundred on the 'government's dollar'."   THAT would be funny....and a plan!
