Are states banning/thinking about banning ecigs so people will move back/switch to the higher taxes real cigarettes?
State: theses ecigs are unhealthy, so we are banning them but feel free to partake in tobacco cigarettes that are really really unhealthy, but we do make a ton of money on them, so yeah....
“At this time, there does not appear to be one product involved in all of the cases, although THC and cannabinoids use has been reported in many cases.”

E-cigs are extremely unhealthy, no better than a regular cigarette, we're learning that more and more every year that they're on the market. I wouldn't buy/smoke them even if you paid me to.
If cigarettes are legal then so should e-cigs in my opinion. It's your own choice to ruin your body's health.
Public Health England maintains vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking
The government is launching a new campaign to try to convince the UK’s smokers that vaping is not as harmful as smoking and a good way to quit, in a bid to counter the scepticism generated by some scientific studies and media headlines. Public Health England maintains vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking Public Health England (PHE), which maintains that vaping is 95% less harmful than tobacco, is releasing a short video of an experiment which reveals the amount of sticky black tar that accumulates in the lungs of a heavy smoker, collected in a bell jar. By contrast, the same nicotine intake through vaping releases only a trace of residue. “It would be tragic if thousands of smokers who could quit with the help of an e-cigarette are being put off due to false fears about safety,” said Prof John Newton, director of health improvement at PHE.
