Mouths of Babes

Advocates of e-cigarettes are facing a new public backlash: the ease for children and teens to obtain and use the devices.

While it is true that the devices are treated like tobacco products (in that they feature an age requirement for purchase), the fact is that — with no visible smoke or smell — children and teens can often use the e-cigarettes without detection.

Contrary to the assertions of some, I am not anti-e-cigarettes. However, I do believe they should be subject to the same scrutiny as tobacco products, and measures should be taken to keep the devices out of the hands of children and teens.
