    So its been almost 10 years and this vapor cig isnt world famous yet? Is it even going to flourish? Why are they designing it to be unappealing to younger smokers? Is the vapor made of O2? Can it be flavored? I just heard about this a couple weeks ago. Is this guy a good guy or bad guy? I think all us Newport smokers should get a complimentary try. I probably would have switched to that 7 years ago had I known. I like the idea of not smoking, just difficult to hold on to appeal even if promises less health problems. hmmm..nasty habit to get hooked on. Really. Email me and ill give you my address. Thx you in advance to Lorillard.

    Renee, the folks at blu are nice and will probably be happy to answer your questions, specifically about a Newport/blu pairing. http://www.blucigs.com

    In your opinion do you think ecig vendors will be the good guys or bad guys?

    Well, Marco, it seems straightforward to me, but when has tobacco been without its gray area and controversy? If e-cig vendors are marketing their products to smokers, I see that as a plus. If they’re marketing their products to niche customer sets that don’t already smoke and think it might be cool to start vaping, then I think that’s not good.
    Why do you think e-cig companies need to be either good or bad guys?

    Why would something thats similar to smoking but NOT smoking be bad? Is there forever going to be this stigma with smoking that everything remotely similar will be branded as such?

    People need to lighten up and realize that its our lives not anyone elses and how we choose to live is entirely our own decision.

    blu is a great brand and is a great way to augment or help quit smoking. Its helped me more than any patch or nicotine gum ever could.

    I hope they keep up the good work with new products and hope that they enjoy many many prosperous years to come!
