Keep minors away from e-cigarettes – 19 de Enero de 2015 – EEUU

Nicotine is addictive.

Yes, e-cigarettes deliver, through vapor, less nicotine and are thought to be less addictive. But less doesn’t mean any addiction. Moreover, just because e-cigarettes are smokeless does not mean they don’t deliver carcinogens — formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, for instance.

Texas, according to a recent article by Todd Ackerman of the Houston Chronicle, is one of nine states without a ban.
