Anti smoking crowd to go beserk....................

From a Honolulu newspaper..........

It won't be long before you start seeing people in Honolulu restaurants and bars puffing on cigarettes again and, for the time being, it will be legal.

For all those poor addicted smokers forced to loiter outside bars by the dumpsters or banished to their company's parking lot to have a puff, technology has come to their rescue. The hottest thing, so to speak, for smokers are E-Cigarettes, literally electronic cigarettes that give the "smoker" a kick of nicotine with every puff and even create "smoke." But the makers of the many brands of e-cigs claim the smoke is actually harmless water vapor and that the e-cigs contain none of the dangerous cancer-causing chemicals and substances that real cigarettes do.

As a result, these electronic cigarettes are not covered under anti-smoking laws that keep people from smoking in bars, restaurants and other public places. Proponents of these cyber cigarettes claim they can even be smoked in airplanes.

Now, just imagine how crazy this is going to make the rabid anti-smoking crowd..........

And you know it goes without saying, those in the health industry, ie, World Health Organization (WHO), will want several years of research conducted before they approve.
