"Tracking the Rise in Popularity of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems", a recent study published February 8th in the American Journal of preventative Medicine, says people are searching the Internet for electronic cigarettes, or ENDS as they call them, at a far greater rate than nicotine replacement therapies and drugs like Chantix.
In the study, John W. Ayers, MA, Kurt M. Ribisl, PhD and John S. Brownstein, Phd monitored Google searches for electronic cigarettes between January 2008 and September of 2010 in Australia, Canada, the UK and the United States and found during that time ecig related searches grew to out number "several-hundred-fold" those for other smoking alternatives and drugs like Chantix and Champix.
In a not completely unforeseen move, the FDA has filed an appeal to the result of their appeal in the Sotera vs FDA Ecigarette case.
Earlier this month the US Court of Appeals upheld the earlier ruling that the FDA cannot regulate ecigarettes as drug delivery devices and instead must regulate them as tobacco products. Claiming that the three-judge panel's decision "rests on a clear error of law and will undermine" the intentions of Congress who gave the FDA jurisdiction over tobacco products in 2009, the FDA asks that the entire court of appeals for the district of Colombia hold a new hearing to review the appeal and reinstate a stay of the preliminary injunction barring them from seizing ecigarette imports pending that hearing.
The US Court of Appeals in Sottera Inc. v. Food & Drug Administration, 10- 5032, U.S. Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit ruled today that the FDA lacks the authority to regulate electronic cigarettes as drug devices. This upholds a ruling made last year by Federal Court Judge Richard Leon in the original case brought by Smoking Everywhere which has since dropped out of the suit.
The FDA had argued that ecigarettes should be classified as drug devices, but the court said Ecigs can be regulated only as tobacco products under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act which defines tobacco products as those "derived from tobacco" unless they are marketed as a therapeutic device, which reputable brands of electronic cigarettes are not.

First off I want to thank all the great readers, particularly those of you who subscribe and have been such a great source of support, information and friendship over the last year. You are all very special to me. After all, what's a blog without readers?? The ECS wouldn't be here without all of you.
When I first started this I was not really sure where it would go. I just wanted to post some of my thoughts and provide some information to clear the smoke around ecigs. So much misinformation was floating around and I figured a blog would be a great way to not only corral all the info I collected, but to help others find good information too. In the beginning there were only a few sites like this and over the last year literally hundreds of websites have popped up but sadly most are just more smoke and mirrors.
