Electronic Cigarettes, commonly known as an “e cigarette“, are a hot topic these days and there are plenty of people with very strong opinions on both sides of the table.

I also agree that there should be a lot more discussion on this topic. But a topic of this importance and potential value to our society should be constructive, collaborative and action oriented with a view to move the topic forward, not backward. I find very few people are actually basing their arguments of facts and logic.

I am going to summarize this ongoing debate and try my best to reference facts and use logic in my argument.
