Few dare call it bribery: OK grants, e-cigs, and another brick in the wall « Watchdog.org

When the town of Ada, passed an e-cigarette ban on a 4-3 City Council vote, the Tecumseh Countywide News reported officials pushed it for two reasons: “(1) to bring current restrictions in line with other cities’ and the state’s initiatives to reduce injury or illness related to tobacco and (2) to help the city qualify for a healthy communities grant.”

TSET would be the grant-maker, so long as e-cigarettes were banned on public property.

Definitely bribery, but nothing new. Politics as usual.
A lot of people are ignorant of the safety of e-cigarettes and the e-juices. I got in a little debate with a postal worker today, she tried to tell me that e-cigs were 7 times worse for you than analog cigarettes and I almost flipped.
