Smokeless Selects Responds to Big Tobacco?s 135 Million Dollar Buyout of Blu Electronic Cigarettes

Temecula, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2012

The long awaited involvement of big tobacco in the electronic cigarette industry indicates the future of smokeless Tobacco alternatives. ?Major E Cig companies like Smokeless Selects have been waiting for Big Tobacco?s next move. This will help push lower grade E Cigarette manufacturers out of the market improving the overall standards in the industry. We have been eager to see how the Tobacco industry will respond to our smokeless innovation. Members of Smokeless Selects see the Blu buyout as a symbol of triumph over the continuing battle against Big Tobacco,? reports Jason Golec ? Managing Member. The Buyout by Lorillard, the third largest manufacturer of Tobacco Cigarettes, is the first action taken by a Big Tobacco company that indicates interest rather than distaste for the electronic cigarette.

Historically, Big Tobacco has always taken a different approach to Electronic Cigarettes and the product?s ever-growing market share. ?Big Tobacco lobbyists have been heavily involved in persuading congress and the FDA to shut down the E-Cig industry all together,? said Jason Golec. Attempts to do so have been focused on health issues and poor manufacturing standards that were typical of E Cig companies during the earlier phases of Electronic Cigarette production between the 2008-2010 time periods. Big Tobacco has also gone after Electronic Cigarette manufacturers directly to curb the increasing market share. ?Even Smokeless Selects, a top ten rated U.S. E-cig company, has received notification from big Tobacco stating their intent to take legal action on product packaging in order to reduce competition,? Eddie Quiroz reports.

While Big Tobacco’s approach to control market share has changed, one fact is clear. Electronic Cigarettes pose a serious threat to the Tobacco industry. ?The Electronic Cigarette is cheaper, doesn’t emit harmful smoke and can be enjoyed almost anywhere without limitations. Even more exciting, the product poses no risks to surrounding people and is more environmentally friendly. The product truly is a miracle device when compared to Tobacco Cigarettes. I am surprised that it took this long for big Tobacco to make their claim on an industry that?s taking over and we welcome it,? concludes Jason Golec.

Spokane, WA (PRWEB) May 25, 2010

While research is conclusive regarding cigarette smoking’s negative health effects on human health, additional studies show the damaging impact on the environment as cigarette butts are the most common piece of litter in the world.

Cigarette butts account for roughly 1.7 billion pounds of the non-biodegradable trash worldwide. Made with a plastic material, cigarette butts take up to 25 years to degrade while leaching chemicals into soil and groundwater.

One in eight trees cut down in the world is due to tobacco growing or curing. It is estimated that 600 million trees are destroyed each year for this purpose. In addition, cigarettes are a leading cause of house fires in the U.S., causing one in every four fire related deaths.

“Since our e-cig products contain no tobacco, there is no burning or combustion and therefore no harmful carbon dioxide is emitted and of course no first or second hand smoke,” said Smart Smoke president, Josh Jamerson. “By eliminating tobacco, there is no farming or harvesting of land, no deforestation, and no pesticides. That’s significant because growing tobacco requires the use of more pesticides per acre than any other crop grown.”

Smart Smoke e-cigs simulate the sensation of smoking without exposing the user to harmful cancer causing agents and other dangerous chemicals normally associated with traditional tobacco products.

The realistic simulated smoke, which is actually a vapor mist, harmlessly evaporates in the surrounding air within a few seconds when exhaled.
