How the electronic has the potential to assist in the fight against crime and terrorism
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2013 -- The electronic cigarette is here to stay and that is no secret and it is facing some intense heat from the several sources such as federal authorities amongst others. Tobacco brings in $1.8 billion in tobacco taxes for New York whilst e cigarettes are just a drop in the ocean compared to that, so allowing them to run rampant and to grow at the amazing speed at which they are growing at, would put all that revenue in jeopardy.
With electronic cigarette there is barely any tax, this is why the best thing is to either ban them outright or to have them treated as tobacco product so that they can contribute to the taxes. But it must be said that e cigarettes are not really cigarettes, they are a smoking device. This means the electric cigarette can be smoked without tobacco and nicotine; this is what makes them being branded as tobacco a problem. This is why 60% of all cigarettes in New York are smuggled from other states with a lower tax rate.
That is why the electronic cigarette are such a big threat to tobacco thus they would have a great impact to both the smugglers who are going to be hit by the current and ever increasing huge migration of smokers from tobacco to them. And also authorities consider smokeless cigarettes a threat to their finances; therefore they are facing competition from all sides of the law.
It has also been suggested that electronic cigarette brands have the ability to assist in the fight against terrorism. Because the smuggling of tobacco cigarettes is so easy and the fines are so insignificant recent data from the FBI and ATF claim that proceeds from this industry are being used to finance terror and drug smuggling. As a result the adoption of electronic cigarette will allow this illicit flow of funds to be stopped in the long run or at least reduced.
