    Standing here in the pharmacy waiting on a prescription...

    Can't help but wonder why it's OK to use ecigarettes with propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavorings. They are openly SOLD at the pharmacy. If the effect of ecigarettes is so "unknown" and HC advises against it so strongly.
    Is it the "evil" nicotine? Is that what they are unsure about the inhalation of? But strangely enough on the same shelf right beside the nic free ecigs are the nicolette inhalers.

    So they are ok with Pg, VG, and flavorings being inhaled... And they are ok with nicotine being inhaled. Just not all together.

    Thus concludes my random thought for the day.

    That's what Heath Canada is saying to each other!

    Well here is an interesting tidbit. I attended a Lung Cancer and Smoking Cessation presentation at work the other day. It was the first time I've attended this type of presentation where they talked about e-cigs. They explained the mechanics of it. They also called it a "safe nicotine delivery system". However, they refused to recommend it for smoking cessation because they are no "statistics" or "scientific research" to prove it works to get people off regular cigs.

    On the other hand, my family doctor thought it was an awesome move on my part to switch to vaping.

    Although everybody is sweeping it under the rug, it is gaining attention and has some interesting supporters.

    My MD a 'never smoker' has become an e cig advocate and recommends them for 'hard core' smokers. I've had two visits since I quit analogues and mention a recent study, news article or website. If thousands of MD's see first hand the benefits of electronic over analogue it will be too late to stop it. Seriously, I think the cat's out of the bag already.

    C'mon now, HC would never recommend a cigarette alternative that actually works and we know it, it would end the perpetual cycle that makes big pharma tons of money. How dare we get off the merry go round and try something that could really work.

    Keviedee, you're right. The presenter actually said "Nicotine is a poison. HC would never approve of regulating a poison".
    Talk about hypocrisy.

    I was in seeing mine last week for a scrip refill, he was much more interested in talking about my e cig than the usual chat about how the meds were working. He got REAL excited when I told him I hadn't had an analog since I started. Think I made a convert.

    My brother in law and aunt on my wife's side, are very happy that I'm vaping and not smoking, he's a respratory therapist and she's the vice dean of medicine at U of A. Well, everyone's happy but to have medical folks approve of it is just a bit of icing on the cake.
