E cigarette to be banned

    1. Petition by

Many people use the e cigarette to quit smoking or as healthier alternative to cigarettes. The FDA wants to ban this useful product because think that there "might" be some "TRACE chemicals" that "could be" harmful, but they have yet to prove their theory. These chemicals they believe to be harmful are currently found in FDA approved products such as nicotine gum and patches. Why should the FDA make people suffer who are trying to better their lives by getting healthier? If you believe that banning a product designed to help people get healthy is wrong, sign this petition. Smoker or not, please sign if you believe we shouldn't condem people who are attempting to better their lives for no logical reason.

      After smoking for35 years this was the only product that has made me stop smoking. I had been diagnosed with COPD and was out of breath all the time. All that went away once I started using the e-cigarette. I have not smoked a cigarette since the day after starting using the e-cigarette. It has been 7 months now. My husband loves it. Our home and vehicles no longer smell like stale cigarette smoke.

      I've switched to the e-cigarette for over a year now, I feel much better doing so too. I have more energy, the vapor feels cleaner, and I don't smell horrible when I smoke. The e-cigarette allows me to choose the amount of nicotine level I want without the tar, there is definitely a huge difference with the e-cigarette and a regular cigarette, many people I know have quit smoking with the e-cigarette and others, like myself, are allowed to smoke very little nicotine without becoming tired and feeling sick afterwards. I've been sick much less since I used this as an alternative, and I've been able to control my habit, please do not ban the e-cigarette, while I may be able to quit altogether, I know many others who would go back to smoking regular cigarettes. The e-cigarette is the best alternative to cigarettes, whether to quit or just to switch. If you take the e-cigarette, this will not be fair to those who prefer to use this product and have been for awhile now, such as myself. I have not once heard of someone dying from smoking the e-cigarette, but I have had several family members dying from lung cancer because they were chain smokers with regular cigarettes. Also, please do not think that because there are flavors available for the e-cigarette that it is targeting teenagers, everyone I know who are legal adults ranging from the ages of 20-60, enjoy the flavors just like myself.
