The Great E Cigarette Fraud Going On

E-cigarettes have come under a great deal of fire lately from various politicians. A senator even suggested they be pulled from the shelves immediately. With political pockets lined with pharmaceutical company money, who can you trust these days? Is our government concerned with our health, or are their chess moves really just good business? Well we can look closely at a few of those questions.

Pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars a year from the sale of smoking cessation products. The senator in their pocket thinks these products, that offer the same benefits as nicotine inhalers marketed by the same pharmaceutical companies paying him, is unsafe and should go through years of stringent testing. At the same time, medicines to cure all kinds of ailments are being put out with side effects ranging from dry mouth to death. All one needs to do to market a drug not FDA approved is put a little label on your commercial that says so. There are a number of pills that market on late night television for dieting and other personal problems that say that very thing. They claim their product will do certain things and follow up with a, “These statements have not been approved by the FDA.”.

So why else would e-cigarette companies be targeted? Unfortunately, our government officials have become paid spokesman for the big pharmaceutical companies. The difference is that our government officials do not make commercials, but rather make the laws that govern our country. The privatization of government is one of the first steps to having a communist governing body. It is only a few steps away from moving a government that works for private companies to having a government that is the private companies. If a government is paid to protect a company, how long will it be before the government uses a loophole to take that company over and make it government run? Our government has already begun privatization of previously government run things to make room for it. Our prison system has been privatized to free up government resources. What will they use the extra money for? It certainly is not to lower the deficit. Soon no other country will cash our checks, so the government will have to take over private business. They will say that it is to prevent gouging.

The government will have the ability to take over public interests in the name of public safety. Who's safety are they looking out for. I believe the answer to that is clear.
