More Smokers Turn To E-Cigarettes

E-cigs “are growing in popularity . . . no question about that,” says Chad Maynard, spokesman for ElectronicCigarette.net on the category.

Electronic cigarettes might not be marketed as smoking cessation aids, but recent studies posted in the American Journal of Public Health suggest that many smokers are turning the the product for that reason.

Smokers are far more aware of e-cigarettes, and are more likely to try them. The devices are not necessarily attracting young people or non-smokes, as some public health experts have feared.

“People have their own reasons for trying vapors,” said Chad Maynard, spokesman for ElectronicCigarette.net. “But no one is marketing them for that purpose and we couldn’t say whether or not they would be effective. Our Website is there to help people who decide to try vaping, learn more about it and make an informed choice about which brand to try, regardless of why they want to try them.”

Awareness of vaping products was reported to be highest among cigarette smokers. While some public health experts advocate for the Food and Drug Administration to ban the devices, others have raised the issue of what would happen to the growing number of people who are vaping, especially those who are former smokers.

Dr. Michael Siegel of the Department of Community Health Sciences at Boston University School of Public Health reported that pulling e-cigs from the market could push former smokers back to traditional cigarettes, further damaging their health. He reported in his blog that vaping poses less risk to health than traditional smoking.

“All we can do is wait and watch,” Maynard said. “We would welcome more research, but don’t see any valid reason for an outright ban.”

    Regular cigarette prices have been increasing all over the U.S. due to higher taxes. These devices, in addition to getting rid of the cigarette smoke, are cheaper than buying regular cigs. In my opinion, I’ve found the best e cigs at http://www.modernsmoke.com!

    It would seem you have to think twice about what brand to sell in your concenience store..New law suits amed at you…?
    Landmark Electronic Cigarette Settlement After 7 More Sued.

    Market experts felt when Lorillard tobacco acquired Blu e-cigarettes weeks ago; they were done with any more lawsuits from Ruyan/Dragonet holdings concerning patent infringements. Not so fast. Ruyan filed 7 more patent infringement lawsuits on June 22 against both big and small e-cig firms including suing Vaporcorp (and Njoy) again. Vaporcorp is the parent brand of Blu e-cigs sold in 7-11’s and Walgreens that according to the suit, all infringe on Ruyan’s powerful USA patents.

    While Ruyan continues to relentlessly file infringement cases, it did settle its lawsuit against Nutrade, LLC . .Seems the Key to the settlement was NuTrade’s independent invention and patent efforts over the last 5 years. The settlement clearly states that 3 out of 4 of the Nutrade e-cigarette models do not infringe on Ruyan’s fundamental patent structures (Nutrade did also agree and paid a penalty to Ruyan based on a massive royalty percentage on sales of their 4th model. Nutrade agreed to no longer make that model) This formal acknowledgment by Ruyan on 3 Nutrade e-cig models goes a long way to protect Nutrade, their distributors and retailers of their products from ongoing legal entanglements. At this time it is not clear what other brands, distributors or retailers can say the same.

    Could Ruyan’s next lawsuits target distributors like Core-Mark and retailers like Circle K? It seems they already are moving to that next level. CB Distributors that markets and distributes 21st Century Smokes E-cigarettes was just sued by Ruyan for “product infringement”. C-stores are now also targets! This new twist makes the settlement with Nutrade of major consequence. It would seem that for the first time Nutrade e-cig distributors and retailers have what other don’t: more puffs and no lawsuits.

    Nutrade LLC key e-cig brand is “The Ciggee” ( http://www.ciggee.com) .The Ciggee is a USA patent pending disposable that is guaranteed to last longer then any other disposable e-cig on the market and guarantees the best wholesale and retail price points in the industry.
