The big money tobacco companies are most likely pushing their muscle with the government to make it difficult for the e-cigs to prevail. I see people everywhere using the e-cigs now. Myself and ALL of my friends have gotten off of cigarettes using them. I know the tobacco companies have to be feeling the drop in tobacco sales. I'm sure that the hotshot execs don't want to worry about making their yacht payments. That would be far more important than saving lives.
