Ag Horne Says E-cigarettes Ok Where Smoking Isn’t In Arizona

He said that, no matter how you look at it, the devices are designed to get people to inhale what he still calls a cigarette. If this looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, then its probably a tobacco product, he said. Pfeifer also pointed out that the manufacturers most of them tobacco companies have balked at having the devices considered nicotine delivery systems instead of cigarettes. Thats because such a classification would allow them to be regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. So from Pfeifers perspective, if theyre not drug-delivery devices, they have to be cigarettes. But state Health Director Will Humble said the opinion comes as no real surprise. He echoed Hornes beliefs that the purpose of the law was not to keep people from harming themselves but to keep smokers from harming others. Getting the tobacco out of workplaces was enormous, he said.
