Smoke-less cigarettes - NOT SAFE!

Here is some info from the FDA regarding the E cigarette/smokeless cigarette:

They are not FDA controlled/monitored therefore the quality of the product and even the ingredients of the cigarette are not guaranteed.
The amount of nicotine varies.
Other chemicals were found in the product as well, such as Nitrosamine (a carcinogen) and diethylene glycol (a toxic chemical used in antifreeze).
Minors may purchase the product – many are sold online.
The FDA has taken action against several manufactures for false advertisements and poor manufacturing practices.

We need to ensure to notify our youth that they are not safe.
