    Default Kansas bans sales of e-cigarettes to minors

    Kansas has banned sales of e-cigarettes to minors . . . and, God bless them, that's all they did. They didn't try to restrict sales to adults or otherwise bring anything in through the back door.

    Kansas appears to be pretty forward thinking. Earlier this year, a nonbinding resolution was proposed (House Resolution 6026) asking the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to conduct a study regarding tobacco harm reduction:

    The Committee on Federal and State Affairs recommended on May 4th, 2012 that the resolution be adopted. (Not surprisingly, the American Cancer Society opposes the resolution. )

    It is nice to be posting good news . . . and there seems to be more and more good news as the concept of tobacco harm reduction gains more traction.

    For example, Nebraska passed a resolution regarding tobacco harm reduction earlier this year. http://rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com...s-tobacco.html) Indiana also urged the study of tobacco harm reduction this year (and last year Indiana noted that tobacco harm reduction was a legitimate factor to consider in setting excise taxes). http://rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com...-study-of.html

    Let's hope that we see more states follow these examples.

    Hopefully other states take the hint. Clearly the cancer society only cares about it's continued relevance, not harm reduction or cures.

    Not true, my friend. Did you know that the first woman mayor in the United States was elected in Kansas? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susanna_M._Salter

    I'd say something funny too, but that would be trolling the news.
