And I don't want them smoking those things around me or my kids. I don't believe in them or think they should be allowed to use them inside public places like restaurants.

Actually it is water vapor with tobacco in it. It is the same as quitting.you do nit get cancer from tobacco, you get it from the carcinogens and additives in actual cigarettes. If a smoker switches to e cigs they will repair their lungs and lessen their chances of cancer the same as someone who quit completely. Do your homework.

It's legal becaue there is NO smoke involved, alot of the liquid used doesn't even contain nicotine.  It is still reinforcing the oral habit of smoking yes, but does not harm others

I'm a non smoker with severe lung problems and I agree with this. I don't let anyone smoke in my house but really don't have a problem with the ecig.

They don't continuously smoke like a real cigarette does.  I still think they shouldn't be allowed inside but they are better.
