Cigarette maker Lorillard 2Q profit up 10 pct

The arrival of electronic cigarettes has raised a red flag for health officials and others who worry the activity of “vaping” nicotine will hook young people into a new addiction that could last a lifetime. In Colorado, the concern is heightened by the arrival of tobacco giant RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. Beginning this month, the maker of Camel cigarettes and other tobacco products began selling its new e-cigarette – called Vuse – in Colorado as one of four test markets. “We’ve done a lot of work to make it not cool to smoke and we’d hate to see that rolled back,” said Stephanie Walton, ecf youth policy coordinator for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Also known as personal vaporizers, e-cigarettes broke into the American market six years ago. They look like cigarettes, but do not contain tobacco.

Most tobacco companies have been raising prices and cutting costs to keep profits up as the recession and declining demand cut into cigarette sales. Tax increases, smoking bans, health concerns and social stigma also have made the cigarette business tougher. Lorillard, based in Greensboro, N.C., says its cigarette shipments fell about 2 percent to 10.44 billion cigarettes. Adjusting for trade inventory changes, Lorillard says its cigarette volumes were flat during the quarter, compared with a total industry decline of more than 4 percent.

E-cig sellers jockey for market position before FDA issues regulations

Editorial: LIRR is right to ban e-cigarettes

A person smokes an electronic cigarette, or

For example, Logic advertises on more than 15 radio stations and is contemplating launching an expensive television campaign. That would follow TV ads by two of its leading competitors, Njoy and Blu (the latter was bought by Lorillard last year). Both radio and TV are off-limits to traditional cigarette ads. “We’re supposed to start a campaign by the end of the year,” Alelov said of Logic’s TV push. But, he added, “we want to wait for the FDA’s proposed regulations to suggest “what we can and can’t show on television.” Matthew Steingraber, co-founder of White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes , said there are “positives” that come from having no federal regulation, including “flexibility in the type of nicotine we can offer, and we’re not held to a certain flavor.” White Could sells e-cigarettes containing six different strengths, ranging from “nicotine-free all the way up to 5.4 percent by volume,” he said, adding that the options are a selling point to those looking to transition to e-cigs and then taper down their nicotine consumption. The Tarpon Springs, Fla.-based company also sells 19 different flavors of e-cigs, including two added last month: Iced Berry and Zero K, which boasts “a cold blast of peppermint.” Flavors are prohibited for traditional cigarette makers.

R.I. Governor Chafee vetoes e-cigarette ban for those under 18

Further, the German study said: “Adverse health effects for third parties exposed cannot be excluded because the use of electronic cigarettes leads to emission of fine and ultrafine inhalable liquid particles, nicotine and cancer-causing substances into indoor air.” As the devices are touted as an aid to quit smoking, U.S. cigarette makers are jumping into the market with flavors that include strawberry and pina colada. Meanwhile, the FDA is studying e-cigarette health effects and whether to regulate the devices as it regulates tobacco.

Cote, D-Woonsocket, that would have allowed communities to raise the tax on low-income housing from 8 percent to 10 percent of the previous years rent. An announced candidate for mayor of her city, Baldelli-Hunt said the legislation was aimed at unnamed developers abusing a tax break, for which they do not qualify, in a way that deprives Rhode Islands cities, in particular, of sorely needed revenues for schools and services. But national, state and local agencies and Richard Godfrey, executive director of Rhode Island Housing urged Chafee to veto the bill, saying it would scare off investors and jeopardize current and future affordable housing projects. Approved on an unusually close 27-to-25 House vote, the bill was also the subject of a heated debate the final night of the session between Rep. Jeremiah OGrady, who is a real estate project manager for the Olneyville Housing Corporation and Baldelli-Hunt. Since rents cant be raised on the low income residents, OGrady, D-Lincoln, said the tax hike would jeopardize the survival of affordable housing units across the state, that were built on break even financing-assumptions.

Health officials worry about electronic cigarette push in Colorado

“There is no research that shows that (e-cigarettes) are an effective cessation or stop smoking aid or device,” she said. Still, e-cigarettes are catching on worldwide. A recent survey found that nearly 10 percent of Parisian schoolchildren between the ages of 12 to 17 have tried them. There are many active e-cigarette forums and Facebook pages. One website discussion in Colorado asks if people can “vape” in casinos in the mountain gambling town of Blackhawk and advertises meet-ups where fellow “vapors” can connect.

Are e-cigarettes healthier?

eSmokers – Breaking the Law or Just Our Patience?

The group Americans for Nonsmoker’ Rights (ANR) cited the Indoor Air journal study. The study showed nicotine causes the formation of carcinogens including formaldehyde when exhaled indoors, and could remain on surfaces for weeks. Users could then absorb the carcinogens. The authors (of the study) concluded the e-cigarettes are a new source of chemical and aerosol exposure and their potential impact is a concern that should be investigated, the statement noted. ANR’s immediate concern is the use of e-cigs at smokefree locations, like the workplaces and restaurants. Evelyn James, health education specialist with the Florida Department of Health in Marion County (once called the Marion County Health Department), said e-cigarettes have not been studied.

FDA faces important decisions on regulation of e-cigarettes

EsmokeHub Announces The Best Vapor Cigarettes 2013

Preliminary testings shows the vapor conatins number of toxins, including carcinogenic tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) and diethyline glycol, a substance commonly found in antifreeze. More research on e-cigarette vapor including its second-hand effects is required to definitively determine exactly how dangerous it is. The authors proposed several questions around which to base future research: Do low levels of contaminants in e-cigarette vapor pose a health risk? What are the thresholds for toxicity of contaminants in vapor? What should be the basis for product standards for e-cigarettes?
