Confessions of an e-cig salesman

Many youth are taking up e-cigarettes saying they want to quit tobacco or keep smoking minus the health effects, but the reality is the substitution won’t help them accomplish much beyond smoking in public places where tobacco has been banned.  One youth who took a job as a “brand salesman” for an e-cigarette company divulges what is known about the reality of e-cigarettes, and what remains unknown.  “[T]he first thing I learned in my job training was that these devices are neither proven cessation tools nor healthier than regular cigarettes. In fact, the chief rule was to avoid making such claims.” Read more confessions of an e-cig salesman, on Voicewaves.

    The initial marketing of the THC e-cig will be directed
    at medical marijuana dispensaries and wellness centers across the country
    (16 States which have approved the use of marijuana for medicinal
    purposes). It’s a great way to save money, to have more
    to invest elsewhere. Do not be fooled: With 4 million people dying each year because of to tobacco use about the entire world, the odds are not
    in your favor.
