Electronic cigarettes (E-cigs) are being aggressively marketed as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. However their safety and effectiveness as a cessation device or harm reduction device are still in question. This presentation by Susan Vileta will describe what an e-cig is, what is really in the vapor produced by them, the current status of regulation, and the motives and tactics of the tobacco industry in marketing the devices.
