    Does this make sense? I see teens smoking all the time. Where are they getting the cigarettes? If they are then wouldn't it make more sense to sell the e-cigarettes if they are not smart enough today to leave them alone? Or is it better to have them smoke real cigarettes? Just asking.

    I think this makes perfect sense. Teens will always find a way, like some stupid adult or brain dead 18 year old to purchase for them. I'm for heavy taxation on cig's and tabacco products. These products are harmful/deadly and cost tax payers millions each year.

    I think they should stick with the little candy "trainer cigarettes" that they used to give to kids.
