One of the most important figures in the anti-smoking movement in this century has joined the Board of Directors of NJoy. Richard Camona, who was the surgeon general under President George W. Bush for four years, will be an advisor to the company on regulatory and public health issues, as well as research into electronic cigarettes.
Camona, during his time as surgeon general, was a vocal supporter of banning all tobacco products, and issued an important report on the effects of second hand smoke. He is said to be one of the most influential figures in the spread of smokin bans throughout the United States during the 2000s.
Camona tells the Associated Press that he may end up being the company’s biggest critic, but also that if the science behind e-cigarettes supports the use of ecigs as a smoking withdrawal device that reduces harm to users, he would support such a method.
Interestingly, when he testified before Congress in 2003, he criticized the suggestions that there might be safer tobacco smoking alternatives. Carmona is on the faculty of the Uniersity of Arizona as a public health professor and is president of a health and wellness institute in Tucson.
Monday and Tuesday, March 18, and 19, V2 Cigs is running a “Triple Play” promotion that’s worth checking out.

Utah isn’t usually thought of as a groundbreaking state, but they’re the first to consider taxing electronic cigarettes at the same rate as tobacco cigarettes. A proposal in Utah’s legislature would levy an 86 percent tax on e-cigs, which is the tax currently applied to traditional cigarettes; that equals $1.70 per pack of tobacco cigarettes. It would be difficult to come up with a legitimate equivalent for e-cigarettes, but estimates are that a $20 purchase of eliquid would cost an additional $17.20 in state tax.
The sponsor of the legislation, GOP representative Paul Ray, claims that companies are trying to market ecigs as nicotine replacement therapy (which of course, they aren’t). Ray also claims, without citing any proof, that “they’re peddling stuff that they know absolutely will kill people. This is an industry who kills their clientele.”
Analysts say the measure would mean an extra $1.6 million dollars in revenue for Utah; there are no predictions on what prospects are for passage of the proposal.
The number of people using electronic cigarettes in Britain seems to be growing at a rapid rate. A new study by the British health group “Action on Smoking and Health” has released a new study, showing that 22 percent of Britons report having tried electronic cigarettes during 2012. That’s more than twice the number reported just two years ago, 9 percent.
The study shows that just about every new user was a cigarette smoker, and almost half of those said that they hoped to quit cigarettes by switching to e-cigarettes.
Of course, the major question in the minds of users and authorities alike is safety; ASH research manager Amanda Sandford says that her group believes more research on that question is needed. She seems convinced, however, that it makes sense for smokers to make the switch to ecigs, saying “nicotine itself, once it is isolated and extracted from tobacco and just used in its pure state, is relatively harmless.” And of course, electronic cigarettes are primarily a nicotine delivery system, allowing the user to inhale nicotine without all the harmful effects of inhaling burning tobacco.
We don’t think there’s a real reason for it, other than it’s a short month – but V2 Cigs has sprung a surprise two-day sale on all merchandise on us.
They’ll take 20% off your entire order at checkout, for all V2 Merchandise – and if you prefer Vapor Couture, they have the same 20% off offer there, too. Just click on any of the V2 Cigs or Vapor Couture links on our site (including the ones under “Current Specials” in the column to your right) and they’ll take your discount at checkout.
Not a bad way to end the month!
As British officials consider whether to extend bans on public smoking to the use of electronic cigarettes, a noted UK authority has cast his lot in favor of ecigs.
Professor John Britton is the head of the tobacco advisory group for the British Royal College of Physicians. And he tells the BBC that “Nicotine itself is not a particularly hazardous drug. It’s something on a par with the effects you get from caffeine.”
Professor Britton goes on to say that, in his view, if all smokers in Great Britain gave up tobacco cigarettes and took up e-cigarettes, it would save five million lives. In his words, the use of e-cigs is “a massive potential public health prize.”
A decision on whether to tighten regulations on the use of electronic cigarettes in Britain is expected within the next month.
