mind blown


In what may seem like a strange turn of events, the American Cancer Society opposes restricting the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors. Wait a minute, are we living in some of bizarro world?

Dr. Carl Phillips reported in his blog that the ACS testified before the Rhode Island state legislature concerning a bill regulating electronic cigarettes. On the surface, the bill is being trumpeted as a way to protect children from electronic cigarettes. Honestly, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t agree that children should not be able to buy electronic cigarettes, but I digress. However, beneath the surface the bill has many other parts that would restrict the ability of adult electronic cigarette consumers to buy products online(with miles of requirements and red tape.)

That’s where things start to get weird. The ACS was opposed to restricting the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors! A quote from their testimony:

“It’s essential that we wait until we get guidance from FDA before we even put in any kind of ban for the products for youth.”

That’s mind boggling, I’ve reread Dr. Phillips post several times, but I still can’t find a satisfactory reason to do this. Essentially, the ACS is saying it doesn’t want lawmakers circumventing the role of the FDA by attempting to legislate rules for electronic cigarettes. It seems plausible that they believe  laws regulating electronic cigarettes in a sane way would hurt their efforts to regulate electronic cigarettes further at the national level. At least that’s what I can glean from Dr. Phillips’ piece.
