Dear Dr. Ads,
Full disclosure: I’m a smoker, which in today’s society means I am 1) morally deficient, and 2) an endless source of revenue for any and all state expenses.
(Not-So-Fun Fact to know and tell: In 2007, state excise taxes on tobacco rose by $3 billion. State excise taxes on alcohol that year rose by $3 million.)
In Monday’s New York Times, there was this full-page ad.
So here’s my question.
What’s the deal with e-cigs? Safe nicotine harbor, or no?
First off, check out the old Doc’s recent appearance on NPR’s Here & Now.
Then check out VMR Products LLC (which spent a six-figure bundle on the Times ad).
Then check out VaporTruth (the VMR e-cig mouthpiece).
Then decide for yourself.
