Introduction

This proposed project is to evaluate if becoming a retail distributor of the new e cigarettes makes logical sense for Indianapolis Indiana. E Cigarettes were first marketed in China in 2004 and rapidly growing at an astounding pace. Sales are expected to hit $1 billion in 2013 (Stuttaford, 2013). Despite the newness of the product and much of if any side affect have been noted through some studies. In the ECLAT 12-month study, which is double-blind, controlled, randomized clinical study to evaluate smoking reduction, smoking abstinence and adverse events in smokers (Caponettto etal, 2013). The study demonstrated e-cigarettes hold some validity in ‘reducing number of cigarette smoked, and can lead to enduring tobacco abstinence…”

E Cigarettes are operated by batteries that heats up the liquid solution of which some contains zero nicotine, propylene glycol, and other chemicals. When consumers puff on the element this triggers the vapor to be heated giving off a mist (vapor) which consumers inhale and exhale like traditional cigarettes. E Cigarettes are made to look and feel like their real counterpart and ‘simulate the visual, sensory, and behavioral aspects of smoking traditional cigarettes (Caponnetto etal, 2013). Without the combustion or burning of the tobacco leaves, e cigarettes have been proven through some studies to have positive effects on consumers as well as aiding in smoking cessation (Scott, 2013).

Here is a diagram that shows the anatomy of e cigarettes from www.ecigaretteslist.com.

...The Electronic Cigarette By Sergio Gaxiola Composition I Professor Frawley 13 August 2012 The Electronic Cigarette It is estimated that 400,000 deaths will occur this year in the United States from cigarette smoking. This gruesome statistic tells us that with illegal drugs, alcohol, motor vehicle, suicides and murders combined; cigarette smoking is still the number one contributor. In 1963, Herbert A. Gilbert was not aware of these kinds of statistics, however, he was on the brink of an invention that would revolutionize the way we smoke cigarettes almost fifty years later. The invention of the Electronic Cigarette [also known as the e-cig] was patented in 1963 by Herbert A. Gilbert, “The present invention relates to a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette and has for an object to provide a safe and harmless means for and method of smoking by replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air; or by inhaling warm medication into the lungs in case of a respiratory ailment under direction of a physician.” (Electronic Cigarettes, 2009) Unfortunately for Herbert, in the early 1960s cigarette smoking was not yet the threat it has become today. People just didn’t see a need to stop smoking. During the 1950s and 1960s, the Tobacco Company had always marketed towards women; smoking was a sexy thing. As one can see from the photograph, the young lady is beautiful, slender and happy. Throughout the middle of the 1960s big Tobacco Company’s......

...Ecigs / Vaping is intended for current adult smokers , that wish to continue enjoying their nicotine habit at a reduced risk. Vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin based liquid, mixed with small amounts of nicotine and food grade flavoring that then get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer, Simulating the experience of smoking. The vapor created is inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke hence the term “VAPING” as opposed to “SMOKING” Vaping is not proven 100% safe. Although there are now more promising studies out there like the Clearstream study, and IVAQS. Certainly feel free to do your own homework regarding things like PG / VG and nicotine and decide for yourself if vaping is a road you want to go down. I can categorically say that after 5 years of being tobacco free myself. I have never felt better. Keep in mind that vaping and electronic cigarettes are not designed to be 100% safe. They are tobacco harm reduction. As I said above, they are designed for adults to continue enjoying nicotine at a reduced harm. Additionally while not categorized as a carcinogen nicotine is still essentially a poison and can increase blood pressure and heart rate in humans. So please be careful and use at your own risk.

Some smokers simply don’t want to quit nicotine; they just want to “smoke” in a way that drastically reduces the harm done to their bodies.

There are only four chemicals in an e-cigarette which are nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerol, and flavor.

It has come to the realization of the e cigarette industry that there are many people who are reading about experiments done by the FDA that try to dramatize the dangers of e cigarettes. In the most recent attempt to ban electronic cigarettes the big tobacco industry has pushed an FDA ban on all electronic cigarette devices made past 2009. E cigarettes are far better than cigarettes in many ways and the FDA is trying to ban them to save the tobacco industry this is wrong they should be promoting this product as a safer alternative to smoking. Because of all the action against vaping, this essays purpose is to inform as many people as possible about what would happen if vaping was banned and the negative effects that would follow and let them determine how the FDA should handle e cigarettes.
