    When my brother was 6 years old he accidentally ate rat poison and had to have his stomach pumped. Was rat poison banned? NO. I’m sorry about the child, but as with all household chemicals, e-cigarettes and their liquids should be kept out of the reach of children, which is the responsibility of the parents and adults in the household. A simple solution to an ban of these products is a childproof cap on an e-cigarette liquid’s bottle. And they are already being used, as I own e-liquids that have them! Sure, nicotine is a drug, but with e-cigarettes I am not inhaling the 4000+ dangerous chemicals that are in an FDA approved product…the tobacco cigarette. Please be real and transparent in your perspectives and intentions of this blog.

    I’m all for educating the public to the dangers of the liquid nicotine left unattended around children. What I find issue with is proselytizing with the statement “Think about that the next time you light up or take a puff from your e-cigarette.”, which has no place in an informational format by an organization partially funded with taxpayer money. Please keep to the facts, thank you.

    I agree with the other person’s comment. There are many items in a household that could posion children. Also, everyone who smoked regular cigarettes knows that nicotine is poison. We also know that regular cigarettes are worse by far than smoking ecigs as well as second hand smoke, which is bad for your children.

    There is no known evidence that nicotine in cancerous. There are also a number of e-juices that are manufactured in the US, if you opt to only purchase from US made. I don’t get the point here. Ecig companies warn on every item that you should keep out of reach of children. The same that is on all poisonous items. So what is your point here? The point here is there is a tobacco tax and the government is making money on it. There is alchohol tax and the government is making money off of that. But if they try and tax nicotine, then they would have to double tax regular cigarettes, 1 for tobacco and the other for nicotine.

    The great thing about ecigs is that you can buy with zero nicotine, and I could easily do that if they try the tax issue. I see the government trying to tax, since ecigs are becoming more popular. The reason why everyone thought the government was increasing taxes on tobacco all the time was to hopefully make people quit smoking, but that is not the case. They want people to smoke so that extra tax money can be used to pull them out of their debt that they got themselves into from their fullish mistakes. That we all know!!!

    Excellent info and lots of useful and potentially life saving advice.I have no problem at all with the comment about “Think about that…..”
    I agree that it is way past time when we as adults take responsibilty for what we do and have and also the impact upon others and our envirnoment. It was well said and could have been much harsher and less tactful if said by someone else. God on you for standing up and speaking out as oice
