Looks like this rollercoaster ride has come to an end...at least in burgerland. BANNED!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday that it will regulate all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, hookah tobacco and pipe tobacco, among others.

"This action is a milestone in consumer protection -- going forward, the FDA will be able to review new tobacco products not yet on the market, help prevent misleading claims by tobacco product manufacturers, evaluate the ingredients of tobacco products and how they are made, and communicate the potential risks of tobacco products," the FDA said in announcing the changes.

Thoughts?

Strap in for what? I am a little confused on why this is a big deal. I already knew that the "jus" i buy isnt 100% safe, nothing is. All vapers are essentially guinea pigs testing this and that.

The FDA attempted to ban the sale of e-cigarettes following a 2009 study that found detectable levels of carcinogens and toxic chemicals in e-cigarette samples. But a court ruled in 2010 that the FDA had not cited evidence of harm.

"we really really tried to find something wrong with them and even said there was stuff in them that was in rat poison, isn't that good enough? lets us Force people to smoke!"

e-cigarettes sometimes contain about 0.2% as much of a harmful chemical as actual cigarettes do

since you apparently didn't bother to read the article I linked, here's an important part:
“Tobacco cigarette smoke contains high levels of diacetyl and acetyl propionyl, on average 100 and 10 times higher,” compared to average e-cigarette exposure
Cigarettes are already regulated. This won't change anything other than steering smokers away from switching to a less shit alternative.

cigarettes are already regulated and still contain 10-100 times as much diacetyl as unregulated flavors. it makes absolutely no difference.

@Firespawn
also they're not "causing" anything, which you would know if you read the article I linked.
Not only are levels of diacetyl far higher in tobacco smoke than e-cig vapor, but the levels of dangerous compounds found in many of the products studied “are absolutely minimal, and it is not expected to raise any concerns about human health effects”
even tobacco smoke has no identifiable link with any cases of popcorn lung
Since tobacco smoke contains far higher levels of diacetyl than flavored e-cigarettes and there has not been a single confirmed case of a smoker contracting popcorn lung, the likelihood that vapers will contract this particular lung disease is minimal, to say the least.

cigarrettes are heavily heavily taxed, banned indoors, banned on planes, busses, etc. E-cigs had a good run, but they're finished now.

For practical purposes e-cigs are largely either banned or at least highly frowned-upon on public transport, in shops and so forth, at least in Europe. If and when they get banned from pubs that will have an effect.

@5mileys
so an independently funded study on e-cigs is less trustworthy than an indirectly-by-big-tobacco-funded study on e-cigs?
