E-Cigarettes less addictive than combustible cigarettes

Politi-Fact Rates Mostly True

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Electronic cigarettes are devices designed to mimic cigarettes without burning tobacco. Instead, a liquid is rapidly heated, turning it into a gas that users inhale. Often the liquid contains nicotine, the highly addictive substance that keeps smokers hooked.

Many smokers say e-cigs have allowed them to stay away from conventional cigarettes and avoid the cancer-causing chemicals they generate.

Whether e-cigs should be regulated and banned from public areas the way most tobacco products are, has become contentious with two bills under consideration at the General Assembly.

Dino Baccari, whose North Providence company makes and sells e-cigarettes, testified against both bills. He contended that “vaping” on an e-cigarette is not as addictive as smoking a cigarette. He said he had the evidence to prove it.

We looked at that evidence and found his claim Mostly True.
