KSLA News 12 Editorial: May 22nd-E-cigs Viewer Feedback

 

Viewer feedback today to my editorial on electronic cigarettes, otherwise known as E-cigs.  

I said it's past time for the Food and Drug Administration to take a close look at what's in these things.
Some viewers disagree. 

Susan says: "We do know what is in the E-cigarettes. Some have a tiny amount of nicotine and some have no nicotine at all. And they are harmless! How many stories are you going to make up now about the perils of E-cigarettes like you did second hand smoke?"

Amber writes: "It is incredulous that everything that is new on the market is scrutinized by the health 'nuts'. I quit smoking after 30 years and only with the E-cigs."

And there was this comment: "I think they should not be available to minors and that people need to know what is in them."

As always, thank you for your comments.  
I'm James Smith.

    Driving impaired is not just irresponsible, it's selfish. And today with cell phones and Uber, it is too easy to find another way. Drunken driving also just isn't worth the risk to you, your passengers or others on the road. Just don't do it.
