Thumbs Up EU Parliament Reject e-Cigs as Medicine!
In what can only be described as a HUGE breakthrough against the war on e-Cigs.. The EU Parliament today rejected the move to regulate e-Cigarettes as medicine.

A massive thank you to all those involved in the movement to restrict this regulation, especially to those that put countless effort and sacrifices into educating those that matter the most.

Outstanding news - read more here

Do you think the European Parliament will come under pressure to change regulations for ecigs in the future if the FDA moves in the opposite direction to the recent European Parliament ruling?

But the unelected European Commission can keep coming back with the same idiotic proposals. And does...

The Commission is largely responsible for the TPD. They believe in their own sovereignty unlike just about anyone else in the EU.

I have to disagree as well. Ecigs are a massive health benefit when they help people stop smoking, because they don't contain any of the thousands of harmful chemicals found in cigarettes. Vaping has been proven through both anecdotal and scientific evidence to help people quit smoking, there has been quite a bit of research on the topic. And there has also been a lot of scientific research showing that ecigs contain minimal amounts of toxins, essentially the same levels as plain air. Ecigs are far from a threat to health, because they help people stop using traditional tobacco products. Even if you believe the media claims that ecigs contain carcinogenics (which have been proven false, by the way) it still is at a much lower level than those found in burning tobacco. So at the worst possible scenario, ecigs are a huge harm reduction tool. And it's becoming more and more clear that they are not just harm reduction, but rather harm elimination, as more studies show that ecigs don't contain anything worse than plain, clean air with a bit of flavor.
