Corona Couple Sues After E-Cigarette Battery Explodes In Car

Ries said shes still visiting doctors at UC Irvine Health Regional Burn Center. Im supposed to stay out of the sun for at least two years, she said. Gregory Bentley is representing the Ries in a lawsuit against Benham Zolgdahr, the retailer, and Corona-based VapCigs. When a company, regardless of who it is, puts a product into the marketplace, it should be safe, he said. Bentley said the bigger issue is that while the e-cigarette industry is growing rapidly, its not being regulated.

Big Tobacco back on TV with e-cigarette ads

E-cigarettes have flavoring, and studies of other tobacco products show that flavoring appeals to youths. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said in a statement Friday: Too much remains unknown about the potential health risks of these new nicotine products. We are concerned that the tobacco industry is introducing yet another product to Coloradans that is addictive and potentially harmful to their health. Also known as personal vaporizers, e-cigarettes broke into the American market six years ago. They look like cigarettes, but do not contain tobacco. They actually are battery-operated inhalers that turn nicotine into a vapor. The liquid, or E-Juice that is vaporized can carry a range of tasty-sounding flavors such as cotton candy and peach and names like Bikini Martini and Choco Loco. E-cigarettes arent smoked, they are vaped. Studies long have determined that nicotine is as addictive as heroin and cocaine, leaving health officials such as Walton concerned. If children see e-cigarettes as popular and fun and start using them, that can lead to a lifetime of nicotine addiction, she said.

“Our marketing is aimed at switching adult smokers permanently to Vuse,” Stephanie Cordisco, president of R.J. Reynolds Vapor Company, told CNNMoney. Related: The lucrative business of cigarette smuggling Blu eCigs posted net first-quarter sales of $57 million, up 46% from the last three months of 2012. Reynolds is in the process of expanding Vuse distribution, and Altria ( MO , Fortune 500 ) — formerly known as Philip Morris — plans to release an e-cigarette product later this year. Overall, e-cigarette sales could exceed $1 billion this year, blu eCigs vice president of marketing Matt Coapman said, citing industry analysts. The Food and Drug Administration has yet to regulate e-cigarette sales, though it is expected to do so.

E-Cigarette Battery Explodes In Car, Couple Sues

Wirral MEP vows to fight for e-cigarette users

“I went to unscrew it and the battery started shooting fire toward me and then exploded and shot the metal pieces onto my lap.” Her cotton dress caught fire said Ries, “I got severe second-degree burns on both the back of my upper thighs and my lower buttocks.” She described the battery’s malfunction as “a blowtorch type of fire and then an explosion.” Her quick-thinking husband pulled the car over into the emergency lane and threw a cup of coffee on her to put the fire out. Ries said she’s still visiting doctors at UC Irvine Health Regional Burn Center. Gregory Bentley is representing the Ries’ in a lawsuit against Benham Zolgdahr, the retailer, and Corona-based VapCigs. He said that the new product is not being properly regulated. “Right now, at least how it stands, the FDA is regulating this whole industry as a tobacco product, so all of the component parts, including the battery, the charger, and so on, are not tested for safety,” the lawyer told CBS. “The more this goes on without being regulated, the more it’s going to happen,” said Ries.

Illinois raised taxes on cigarettes by $1, to $1.98 per pack, in June 2012. The state Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability reported last month the expected revenue of $212 million in the first year would be about 39 percent short of projections. The shortfall was attributed to smokers who quit or stocked up before the increase took effect. Vaping instead No smoking signs in no-nonsense red-and-black block letters are posted on pillars outside Tribble Vapors. Castleman said smokers from other parts of the strip shopping center were using the corner at the front of the shop.

High taxes sparking e-cigarette business boom

MEPs agreed to treat e-cigarettes as medicines, reducing their availability compared to tobacco and putting big costs on users. Vaporising nicotine to be inhaled by the smoker, the e-cigarettes give addicts their hit without many of the harmful chemicals and second-hand smoke produced by regular cigarettes. The issue will now be the subject of a vote by the full European Parliament in the autumn.

“It can be problematic for those with circulatory issues.” E-cigarettes are not regulated or approved by the FDA. DiLuzio says if you puff, do your research. “There is still a lot we don’t know about them,” she says. “What you’re inhaling is going past metal that’s vaporizing a chemical.

Puff Enuff electronic cigarette store holds grand opening

Winners and losers will emerge, but are hard to predict at this relatively early stage in e-cigarettes’ development, and there will be margin pressure in the short term across the board as companies race for share. This new uncertainty, and the faster long-term decline of tobacco which we predict, should cause investors to reassess their holdings in the sector. Our modelling suggests that tobacco companies will need to win a greater share of e-cigarettes than they have in tobacco to preserve short-term margins: e-cigarette margins will be lower in the early years. The volume decline in the UK tobacco market, for example, could accelerate to as much as 10% compound annual growth rate. It appears to us that BAT is currently more advanced in its e-cigarette thinking than Imperial Tobacco.

EU regulation of e-cigarettes a step closer

Puff Enuff, located in the Vicco community of Perry County, opened at the end of May this year, and co-owner Kevin Adams said his business has flourished in the less than two months it has been in operation. Adams said he decided to open an electronic cigarette store after he tried the product for himself. The next day after I tried them I quit smoking and decided I wanted to open something like this, Adams said. Framed above the register is the last pack of cigarettes Adams said he ever bought since trying the electronic cigarettes in March. There are 29,000 smokers in the three counties in the area, Adams said, adding that he thought, so far, he had converted around 150 of those smokers and planned to keep spreading the word. Adams and Jimmy Collins, also a co-owner, plan to celebrate their grand opening with drawings of customers names for prizes every hour throughout the day Friday, and will finish the day with a Hillbilly Howlers concert at the Oasis on the Bottom from 8 p.m.

Because e-cigarettes are not a tobacco product, companies can get around 42-year-old laws that ban cigarette advertising. Currently, the largest concentration of e-cigarette ads is online. But with big companies such as R.J. Reynolds entering the marketplace, some predict advertising on TV, radio and billboards is not far behind. By around August, we should start seeing significant TV advertising, as well as online, said Colorado-based marketing executive Brent Green.

As co-chair of the MEPs against Cancer forum in the European Parliament, I have campaigned and pressed for this anti-tobacco legislation for a long time, she said. I am delighted that today we voted against the massive negative industry lobbying campaign whichtried to try to delay, block and defeat this legislation. The vote today called for pictorial health warnings covering 75 per cent of a cigarette package, front and back,as mandatory in the EU.

But, how safe are they? Scholars William Cooke and Donovan Fogt have received $30,000 in seed funding from UTSA to find out. The UTSA kinesiologists will team up with Assistant Professor Caroline Rickards at the University of North Texas Health Science Center to gather baseline data about the effects of e-cigarettes on the body’s basic physiological health.

Electronic Cigarette “E-Juice” Cartridge Refill Patent for Sale by ICAP Patent Brokerage

The use of them, including by Daily Politics guest Laurie Penny on-air, can lead to complaints from others who think people are smoking traditional cigarettes, and so breaking the law. Liberal Demcorat MP Stephen Williams, chair of the all-party parliamentary group on smoking and health, and Amish Badiani, a director of a small business selling electronic cigarettes, debated their use and the potential new rules on their use.

The increased revenue from the higher tax is earmarked to help the state pay its share of the planned new Vikings football stadium. Tarifi also said that since the news came out on the state cigarette tax hike, he has heard more patrons talking about quitting smoking. He also reported his cigarette sales falling and that more cigarette smokers are opting to buy loose tobacco to roll their own cigarettes to cut the cost of smoking. Tarifi has also seen a rise in the sale of his e-cigarettes.

Vapor shops growing in popularity in SWFL

The Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida says there’s really no concrete data E-Cigs will help people quit smoking. “We don’t really know for sure what the content of this particular E-Cigarettes often are we don’t know what’s in them” said Brendan Donohue, Tobacco Prevention Specialist with the Florida Department of Health. The Food and Drug Administration announced it would regulate E-Cigs as a tobacco product, but to date it has not enforced any set rules. And where you’re allowed to “vape” is also pretty lax. “It doesn’t bother anyone,” said Vong Damrongthul, who was shopping at the store Damrongthul says he has never smoked a cigarette in his life, but he’s been “vaping” for three months now.

With e-cigarettes, where vapors rise, so does debate

Pasadena’s two shops have both opened within the last month. Benjamin Ocampo, owner of the The Vape Supply Company on North Hill Avenue in Pasadena, said he was going for a lounge-like atmosphere with taupe-colored walls, a long wooden bar and booth-style seating. Customers can purchase low- to high-end devices and sit and “vape” at the juice bar. The most popular flavor is watermelon mint, staffers said. Marco Malfitano, 44, of Pasadena, said he vapes “anywhere and everywhere.” A 30-year cigarette smoker, Malfitano said the devices helped him quit.

Health groups, including the California Medical Association, warn that e-cigarettes are not medically approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are subject to little in the way of quality control. “Health professionals are very alarmed,” Corbett said. When more than 150 opponents of her bill, SB 648, began vaping en masse in the hallways of the Capitol, passers-by coughed and choked on the vapors, she said.
