E- Cigarettes are not bad for the public
Great River, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2013 -- On Tuesday August 6th, Laguna Beach City Council voted no to banning electronic cigarettes. Like many other cities, the electronic cigarette and the lack of regulations to go along with them have been a hot debate.
Laguna Beach City Manager, John Pietig, recommended adding the devices to the city’s ordinance regulation restricting the use in public, as reported by the Laguna Beach Coastline PIlot. The Laguna Beach council has a long standing reputation from protecting the public from secondhand smoke, and to promote healthiness.
"The secondhand vapor from an e-cig is no more harmful than the water vapor rising out of a cup of coffee," said Laguna Beach resident Peter French, regional vice president of Life LLC. "We sell health and wellness products. One of those products happens to be the electronic cigarette."
Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot reports, Tom Kiklas, president and co-founder of the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Assn. provided information from an FDA release stating that, e-cigarettes are battery-operated devices that generally contain cartridges filled with nicotine, flavors and other chemicals.
He also provided another release from an Environmental Agency release stating, that studies conducted up to the testing limit established by the agency have shown dipropylene glycol not to be carcinogenic.
Many on the City Council felt they did not have sufficient proof in order to determine that e-cigarettes are dangerous to the public.
French was quoted stating, “Nicotine has gotten a bad reputation over the years based on the company it keeps. Wrapped up in a traditional cigarette, nicotine is surrounded by thousands of chemicals, more than 60 of which are absolutely carcinogenic and many of which are more addictive than nicotine itself."
At the end of the day, electronic cigarettes were looked at to be an effective and safer way to have nicotine delivered to a person without harming others or polluting the beach with cigarette butts.
