Of course it's because of taxes and because of tobacco company lobbyists with huge amounts of cash that they buy congress member's votes with. Anything as poisonous as tobacco should have been illegal long ago.

BIG BROTHER HAS BEEN HERE. If tobacco is so bad for you and the "public", then WHY haven't they made tobacco ILLEGAL..??? TAXES, TAXES, TAXES. That is it in a nutshell...They make billions off the tobacco "taxes". Where did all the tobacco settlement money go??

I have enjoyed e cigs lately and nicotine gum for over 10 years.. these products are harmless and may have extended my natural life (time will tell) For God's sake... why are we so eager to give up our own freedom?

These people have no right to decide anything on their own without a vote by the public in general. They are not the only ones who live in and pay taxes is Chautauqua County. Electronic cigarettes are not harmful to anyone. These people need to step down here with the rest of the people who live in this County and stop imagining that what they say stands as Gods word and to*****with the rest of man kind.

I would like to know what is wrong with electronic cigarettes? They are nothing more than water vapor. They were specifically designed to replace the dangers of regular cigarettes and help those who smoke to quit. There are no ashes, no second hand smoke, the vapors go away immediately upon exhaling, no odors, and no cigarette butts to be discarded on the ground. Why would they ad these to the big brother law? It makes no sense to me at all.
