Anyone from Sacramento that plans to go or knows an avid e-smoker that plans to attend?

This is silly. Why would they ban something that causes no harm to public and doesn't give off any smells?

Lobbyist money. Big Tobacco is smart. They know that if they can get California to ban it, other states will follow.

But yeah. It's ridiculous.

They should just make their own e-cigs, capitalize on both markets instead of just fighting it with millions and millions of lobbying dollars.

Sad thing is, it's actually cheaper to throw some lobbying dollars at a problem than it would be to retool to make ecigs.

Almost everyone knows what economies of scale are, but not many people know that there are also diseconomies of scale.
