Now eCigs are under review for increasing youth smoking (vaping). Big turn of events.

The most recent stuff I have seen reveals that vaping can damage your lungs to the point of "transplant or die" due to some of the other chemicals that are released when the vapors get hot. Not all flavors do it, but a LOT of the specialty flavors are really dangerous.
