The dangers of smoking e-cigarettes are becoming evident and other jurisdictions are taking steps to protect their citizens. 

How long do we have to wait for Canadian health officials to do the right thing and ban e-cigarettes? Just about every day another jurisdiction acknowledges the danger these products do, and are stopping their sales.  We initially believed arguments that they help smokers of regular cigarettes stop smoking , that they are  safer to smoke because they don’t contain nicotine, and they won’t be targeted towards young people. So soon after their introduction we are starting to see their real effects, and how gullible we were to allow them in the first place. Come on Health Canada. Step up, and ban all e-cigarettes.
