State Attorney General ‘endorses’ e-cigs

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller issued a statement declaring that e-cigarettes are dramatically less harmful than combustible cigarettes, according to the Des Moines Register.

“There has been an effort to say that combustible cigarettes and e-cigarettes are equally harmful, that their companies are equally evil, and that they should be strongly regulated the same way, which is incorrect,” he was quoted as saying.

Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, hailed Miller for becoming the “first (attorney general) in the country to enthusiastically endorse e-cigarettes,”

University of Michigan professor Ken Warner said Miller is a rare “middle-of-the-roader” on the issue of e-cigarettes, which he contended has been one of the most divisive health topics in at least 20 years.
