electronic cigarettes

I've never been anywhere there were electronic cigarettes.

I had never even heard of them before! There was an article in last week's USA Today about these new gadgets. This article led to a discussion with my son. He said he'd seen a guy at McDonald's smoking one. My son went on to tell me he felt like it was a good idea, in keeping kids from getting addicted. I quickly told him that the article points out that nicotine and chemicals are still found in the electronic cigarettes, including some suspected carcinogens. The only benefit that I could see to the electronic cigarette is that I and others around the smoker would not have to ingest the second hand smoke.

That I'd like to see.
