Democratic Senator Blumenthal wants to ban e cigarette online sales and also wants to stop them having many flavors because they pose a threat to minors.
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2013 -- Richard Blumenthal has urged a ban on the online sale and the allowing of the e cigarette to have flavors. According to the senator the online sales of e cigarettes has made them far easier for minors to be able to access them and that the e cig flavors especially the candy flavors are made in such a way that it makes them appealing to the youth instead of the adult market that they are aimed for. Also according to the senator, because the effects of the e cigarette are not yet known, it is not safe to expose them to minors.
There have been numerous reports in the press that are in support of such claims as made by Senator Blumenthal based on few facts and largely flawed tests. The truth is that there is yet to be a federal comprehensive study that has been done to review the effects of the e cigarette. In fact all e cigarette liquid the studies and tests that are being used for the basis of these claims are being conducted by private entities in clinical climates that are operated in highly controlled environments. These are not really what are similar to the outside real-life conditions that exist in the real world.
The truth is that it is much harder for a minor to be able to get an e cigarette online than rather at a physical store. This can easily be proved because the main method of payment for the e cigarette is by credit or debit cards or some other form of bank sanctioned payment method. As such since no bank will allow a minor to have such banking privileges, it is highly unlikely that e cigarette brands will provide such facilities to a minor.
And the issue with flavors is that the average e cigarette is designed to appeal to many segments of the smoking community so that they better appeal to the community. They are also designed to make it easier for those that are within the surrounding environment not be irritated by the vapor as tobacco smoke does for non smokers as well as not to slow down or retard the pursuit of creating the best e cigarette.
