It has to be proven that harm is being done.
I know there is a difference in that people don't blow coffee in the air for others to breathe
FDA, which took more than three years to issue its 241-page Proposed Regulation (and accompanying 81-page regulatory impact analysis), has given us a mere 75 days to comment. While responding in that timeframe is challenging under any circumstances, the FDA has also posed, by our count, 99 requests for information about THR products (this does not include repeat questions or questions specifically pertaining to cigars). Given the length of time FDA has taken to release the proposed regulations, the massive amount of information FDA is requesting, the length of the document itself, and the devastating impact these regulations will have on a product that is estimated to be approximately 99% less hazardous than combustibles, the 75-day comment period is grossly inadequate.

Read today that "kids" are getting busted for smoking e-cigs with "hash oil" in it. The article said that the smell was "nearly undetectable".
"10 times more powerful than smoking a joint"
Sounds like a tailor made argument for banning e-cigs.
