No "Need" To Know "Health Effects" Of E-Cigs, Issue Ban Regardless Says County Commissioner

Chris | InformationLiberation

Bradley County commissioner Charlotte Peak-Jones of Cleveland, Tennessee says there's no "need" to wait to learn all the "health effects" of e-cigarettes, the city should just ban their use in all county buildings preemptively because she doesn't "want to have to breathe all those chemicals."

From the Times Free-Press:
CLEVELAND, Tenn. The Bradley County Commission is preparing to consider imposing restrictions on the smoking of e-cigarettes on county properties where tobacco use now is prohibited.

Commissioner Charlotte Peak-Jones, who is sponsoring the resolution, said it's being drafted and reviewed by the county attorney.

"We don't know all the health effects of e-cigarette vapor yet, but we don't need to wait to address this issue," she said. "I know I don't want to have to breathe all those chemicals, and I don't think the public should either."

E-cigs do not produce a combustible "smoke" like lit cigarettes, and they do not contain tar. Health groups are divided over whether "vaping" is a good alternative to smoking, or if it's trading one harmful habit for another.

Supporters such as Turner Ames, who works at Vapor Tonics in Chattanooga, say vapor products are not tobacco products.

"I feel much better, much healthier than I did when I smoked," Ames told the Times Free Press in March. His boss, shop owner Ben Connally, said many of his patrons are former smokers.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called for a long-term study of e-cigarettes' impact on health.

"Until there is infallible proof that e-cigarettes do not pose a health risk to the public, I believe we should ban their use like we do for tobacco," Peak-Jones said. "If it turns out there are no risks associated with them, we can change the restrictions."

[...]the mayor's office has not received any complaints about people using e-cigarettes in county buildings.
Who needs facts and evidence to make law when you have feelings and emotion?

91102 Notice too, we used cell phones (of varying power and emissions) before ANY facts on them were in. We are deliberately kept in the dark about GM foods (no labelling allowed by our overlords) even though it isn't even a choice, we MUST eat, and they won't let us be informed, and the jury is NOT in on the possible health hazards. No...this is out and out bullying. Not sure what grounds they can have for it either since it is not a cigarette. If they outlaw that, they will have to outlaw chewing gum *(it also sends out a vapor of "chemicals" at least as much, it's just not visible in the same was as vapor), definitely perfume and cologne, there is no question they intrude, deoderants....etc.
Slippery, slippery slope they are heading down.

6626 I was recently in the hospital and the doctors encouraged me to use e-cigs and allowed me to use them right in the room.

97125 I am 66 years old and smoked from age 13 until I started vaping just under a year ago and my cardiologist was amazed at the difference in what he heard in my lungs after just two months.

There are no chemicals in the vapor I use. Not even nicotine. It is nothing more than water vapor and this idiot in Tenn. can kiss my ass.

8750 Here in Denmark the politutes want to do the same -
Strangely, very few want to ban nitrite from our food, despite the fact that it has been proven beyond ANY doubt for more than 30 years to be a potent carcinogen . I've been told by researchers that many places you can no longer get approval for trials with rats - For ETHICAL reasons !

68172 @ 98174, hemp oil and vaporizers have been around for decades.Also all the chemicals in ecigs you encounter on a much higher scale upon entering a restaurant. As for the nicotine,it has negatives and positives.I don't mind being hooked on a chemical that restrict my blood flow a bit and is as addictive as caffeine by itself as a trade for increased cognitive ability,better motor function and sharper focus from the stimulant.
