These cigarettes are now a gateway for young people to smoke tobacco. They need help in making proper choices. This is not one of them, since it is unfettered access to nicotine addiction. In terms of reducing or eliminating addiction, if one is seeking out medical assistance in eliminating tobacco use or other forms of nicotine addiction, it would make some sense to permit the use of these cigarettes in a controlled manner (by prescription or other form of permission to use them). In terms of exposure to these cigarettes, I do not wish to be exposed. I don't want to smell their perfumed emissions, I do not want to have to witness their use, I do not wish to see nonsmokers, including children, having to see the supposed pleasures of this form of nicotine addiction. I am firmly opposed to this new form of delivery of nicotine, and suggest that it be administratively managed to make it difficult to obtain, used only when medically indicated, and used in a manner where no others are being exposed to their usage or their emissions. Thank you.
