I can't think of any other product that gets support from both sides of the fence
Pro Cig group backs ecigs
"Banning e-cigarettes in non-smoking environments makes no sense because the product is very different to a real cigarette. There's no combustion, no smoke, and no evidence that vaping encourages anyone to start smoking."
Anti cig group back ecigs
There is little real-world evidence of harm from e-cigarettes to date, especially in comparison to
• E-cigarettes are used by both smokers and ex-smokers, but there is little evidence of use by
those who have never smoked or by children.
• ASH supports regulation to ensure the safety and reliability of e-cigarettes but, in the absence
of harm to bystanders, does not consider it appropriate to include e-cigarettes under smokefreeregulations.
So who was it who wants them banned exactly?
