Illinois State Ban on the Sale Of Electronic Cigarettes

Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) March 30, 2010

Proposed Illinois Senate Bill 3174 will ban the sale or distribution of “E Cigarettes” in Illinois. State Senator Mattie Hunter, Vice-Chairwoman of the Senate Public Health Committee (D-Chicago) is sponsoring the legislation and states that: “Electronic cigarettes have not been approved by the FDA and we don?t know what is in them or if they are safe. Until these types of products are deemed certified or legal to sell by the FDA, they should be banned throughout Illinois.” In regard to Senate Bill 3174 there is tremendous dis-information that has been cast upon the e-cig and industry. A majority of this has originated from Pfizer and ASH U.S. (

To learn about the bill and what actions to take, please refer to th Illinois Action Page at,, that provides the names of Illinois State Senators and requests that e-cig users and the vaping community politely contact senators to make them aware that this fabulous new technology is now providing to hundreds of thousands of Americans a more logical option to the smoking of tobacco-the one product we know kills over 400,000 Americans annually.

State Senator Mattie Hunter states, “Electronic cigarettes have not been approved by the FDA and we don?t know what is in them or if they are safe,” and also states, “Until these types of products are deemed certified or legal to sell by the FDA, they should be banned throughout Illinois.”

Both of these statements are untrue. Indeed, the FDA has already tested e-cigs ( and could at any time have banned the sale nationally. As the Truth Site is full disclosure, the FDA did put out a 7/22/09 press release that stated that e-cigs contained “toxins and carcinogens”, but did not state levels of such and as science dictates, the dose makes the toxin. That press release was resoundingly criticized by scientists and tobacco harm reduction researchers, as there has never been any toxin or carcinogen found in e-cigs at any level harmful to humans. There are only 13 ingredients in the e-cig and all have been in the U.S. food supply for generations and are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Senator Hunter’s other statement that “we don’t know what is in them” also is false, as along with the FDA’s test and a test by the National Cancer Institute,14 other independent laboratories have tested the e-cig ( and no “mystery” chemical or toxin that is harmful to humans has ever been found.

A ban of the e-cig would be extremely detrimental to the health of all Illinois e-cig users who, if a ban was enacted, would have to go back to the smoking of tobacco. We are in favor of banning the sale of e-cigs to minors and would like to reference Utah’s bill HB 88 ( TruthAboutEcigs was also instrumental in providing just the science to California Governor Schwarzenegger, which subsequently led to the veto of a bill to ban the sale of e-cigs in California ( has been created and managed to provide to governmental entities a resource for un-biased science and facts about the electronic cigarette and industry. Please refer Illinois State Senators to the ( so she and other legislators may have access to the science and facts about the electronic cigarette and to enable this now national debate to be based on science and the current experiences of hundreds of thousands of e-cig users and not based on political ideology or financial gain.
