Some called electronic cigarettes a fad that would die out as quickly as it began but e-cigarettes have caught the attention of smokers around the world. Sure, their design might mimic traditional cigarettes but they are anything but ordinary. Unlike tobacco cigarettes that release harsh toxins and carcinogens when burned, electronic cigarettes release only a harmless water vapor when smoked. Smokers like celebrities Stephen Dorff and Twilight’s Robert Pattinson have made the switch and many are not looking back. But the allure of e-cigs has not just caught the attention of celebrities and politicians. Many companies in the tobacco industry are focusing less on conventional cigarettes and turning their attention to e-cigarettes.
Big Tobacco Vs. Smokeless Cigarettes
Until recently, Big Tobacco faced off with e-cigs, watching their control of the market shift to smaller e-cig brands. Electronic cigarettes have become the new go to for smokers trying to quit and it is hard to blame them for making the switch. Tobacco cigarettes are known for causing nasty side effects like shortness of breath, ashy smells, and disease. The negatives of smoking traditional cigarettes long-term has been studied extensively. Smokeless cigarettes have given long-term smokers hope and the ability to regulate their smoking habit by slowing adjusting the nicotine levels of their e-cigs.
Major Tobacco Company Crosses Over to E-Cigarettes
When tobacco brand R.J. Reynolds announced its intention to start producing and marketing the electronic cigarette Vuse many e-cig users were shocked. Was this a sign that the tobacco industry was caving to electronic cigarettes? The whole “if you can’t beat them, join them” certainly rings a bell in this case. And Vuse e-cigs aren’t the only case of Big Tobacco and electronic cigarette brands teaming up. Leading e-cig brand Blu Cigs recently announced in April their merger with Lorillard. Blu Cigs first made headlines when their advertisements featuring actor Stephen Dorff began popping up on television. Their merger Lorillard is another move to push the brand further into the public spotlight and the Blu Cigs campaign has proven to be very effective.
Future of Electronic Cigarettes
The merger of tobacco companies and e-cig brand manufacturers shows the true staying power of electronic cigarettes. Smokers switching to e-cigs have a growing confidence in their ability to quit smoking. With tobacco cigarettes, on the other hand, smoking seemed more like a never-ending trial of ups and downs. It is easy to see why e-cigarettes have caught on and why Big Tobacco companies have decided to jump on board.
Electronic cigarettes have proven to be a conundrum for FDA officials and states trying to regulate the tobacco industry. While e-cigs may look, taste and feel similar to conventional cigarettes, they are anything but. The FDA and state lawmakers have been keeping a watchful eye on smokeless cigarettes since their rise in popularity. It is easy to see why smokers have made the switch to e-cigs. “Vaping” enables smokers to choose their desired nicotine level, e-liquid flavors, and e-cig design. The ability to customize electronic cigarettes to suit your needs is not the only perk of making the big switch.
The Food and Drug Administration works to ensure the health of Americans aren’t compromised by tobacco products but electronic cigarettes have left many on the board speechless. The long-term safety of electronic cigarettes is still under investigation but many accept the health benefits of e-cigs outweigh the drawbacks of tobacco products. How do you regulate a product that removes the dangerous side effects of smoking?
Electronic cigarettes give off a water-based vapor when smoked so things like ashy smells, stained teeth, and shortness of breath are things of the past. Smokers choosing e-cigarettes have also gained the ability to regulate their nicotine levels and even reduce their nicotine intake over time until they reach 0g. This new freedom offered to smokers has helped increase the popularity of e-cigs significantly since 2009. Studies are being conducted to continue to measure the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes as quick smoking tools so electronic cigarette brands still face an uphill battle.
Smokers who have regained their health and life back with the help of smokeless cigarettes are threatened with taxation and further regulations of e-cig products and accessories. The FDA’s mission is to provide regulation on tobacco products regardless of their benefits of drawbacks so electronic cigarettes are facing heavy scrutiny these days. People are simply unsure how to classify these digital cigarettes when they offer smokers a chance to regain their health and break their addiction.
Vapers, e-cig users, have emerged to rally support for their favorite electronic cigarette brands, forming message boards to share their experiences with electronic cigarettes. While the FDA and cities may be slow to accept smokeless cigarettes, vapers have been quick to share their experiences with the products. Already electronic cigarettes are being modified to fit the changing needs of the vaping community.
Will further regulation on e-cig products hurt innovation in this community or help to create more innovative electronic cigarette products?
