Even the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment says it cant get a definitive answer as to why Colorado was selected. Were not sure why. We would love to know, said Walton. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports nearly 1 in 5 Coloradans smoke cigarettes, ranking the state 10th nationally. Durango Herald Staff Writer Dale Rodebaugh contributed to this report.

E-cigarettes: the new fracking

In the world of fossil energy, we have decided to frack now, and ask questions later. In the world of smoking, e-cigarette makers are flooding the market before any questions can be asked. They want us to believe that since nothing is as bad as real cigarettes, e-cigarettes are inherently good. The history of the smoking industry strongly suggests that once again, it is blowing smoke.

But we know that for smoking cessation products to be most effectively and safely used, they need to be used according to instructions developed for each product through scientific testing. There are no scientifically proven instructions for using ENDS as replacements or to quit smoking. The implied health benefits associated with these claims are unsubstantiated or may be based on inaccurate or misleading information. Based on this information, the WHO concludes that consumers should be strongly advised not to use any of these products, including electronic cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes or ENDS (electronic nicotine delivery systems) are devices whose function is to vaporize and deliver to the lungs of the user a chemical mixture typically composed of nicotine, propylene glycol and other chemicals, although some products claim to contain no nicotine.
