Something is very corrupt when the FDA approves vaping tobacco. The agency has permanently damaged their own image for millions of Americans who will now not respect much of anything they say. Approval comes now to the highest bidder. The FDA is just garbage from now on.

"their benefits in helping smokers quit cigarettes"

I can't believe they're still buying that BS line. I'd like to know the percentage of people who actually stop smoking with these vs the ones who shift the habit to just vape and the ones who just go back to good old fashioned smoking. No one I know who smoked and switched to vape actually stopped taking nicotine.

Everyone I know who has actually quit has either quit cold turkey, used Chantix, or used the patch (which worked great for me).

About 13% quit smoking permanently in favor of vaping.

More likely you'll be vaping and smoking.

#3 Who cares if they are still taking nicotine? The issue with cigarettes is the Tar and other chemicals. If you can get off of dirty cancer causing nicotine delivery system isn't that a win?

Not when you're swapping out tar for chromium, nickel, manganese, and lead.

Not a scientific study but I have known quite a few people who switched to vaping they are all back to cigarettes today. You can't break a nicotine addiction by injesting more nicotine no matter what your delivery method is. The FDA should be ashamed of this ruling and should immediately reverser it. I fear someone just got a very big bribe. I just honestly do not believe this was an honest decision based on science. It is a frightening thing realize that the FDA is up for sale, how can we depend on their decisions in the future now that 'vaping is considered safe and effective?"

Ridiculous. They were just smoking with a different delivery system. They are still injesting nicotine which is the addictive element in smoking.
