Looking at the picture it looks like what we used to do behind Shorty's Bar years ago.

I congratulate Mr. Robb for opening up E Cigarette store at New Ulm. I suggest them to add Cuban sugar in their E Juice flavors which I like the most. This exclusive flavor right now only available in ****ejuice-box****/! Right now I am enjoy vaping in my favorite flavor. Loving it!

Here we go with somebody attacking anothers freedom of choice. We are adults and determine for ourselves whether or not to be around this without the help of yet another regulation. If the writer against the e-cigs wants to really accomplish some good, why doesn't she jump on the wagon about artificial sweetners that do effect people of all ages and leave the adults to live without another law effecting adult choices. She mentions there are no studies saying things are safe. my question is show me ANY study that says these are not safe or a least safer than many products currently allowed on the market which then end up in lawsuits. I noted the writer showed no study to indicate any harmfull data done in any study. Lets not let a thought become a reality with no backing.

glad to see a safer alternative to chemical laden tobacco. Also am glad to see a way we can enjoy a smoke without the $16.00 tax added to pay for a stadium I wont use recently imposed on a select few.

I think a potent line of brownies would be an excellent addition to the inventory at Blue Blaze Vapes

They would be named...what?...Brown Zinger Greats?

New business comes to the area and the older generations have a horrible opinion most of the time. For example Smokes for Less. Maybe he should specialize in sauerkraut and mediocre beer flavor then you would get the older community to not give a negative reaction to a business that they probably will not enter. Try it before you knock it down. Have you gone down and welcomed this man to our city and thank him for opening a new business? Maybe a little community support might attract other business owners to come too our depleted downtown area/city?

I'm not part of the older generation that you speak of and I would much rather see a sauerkraut store than a store that sells nicotine products.

Ya' gotta' admit, that photo of Robb exhaling through his nostrils is a classic. The more I look at it the more it makes me chuckle. Then again, maybe it's the weather that's doing that.

I also notice that Robb is wearing an exclusive Blue Blaze Vapes polo shirt, with the lettering in Olde English typeface.

Classic...and classy.

There are plenty of peer reviewed studies that indicate that e liquid has no measurable ill effects to the user or bystanders. You will not hear about those studies from organizations that receive substantial funding from large pharmaceutical companies as well as the tobacco settlement. American Heart and Lung, American Cancer Society as well as others that have names that certainly sound beneficial have a vested interest in demonizing e cigs. As a 30 year former smoker I applaud the introduction of this harm reduction product. I have not had a cigarette in over seven months. I have tried the approved smoking succession products, no thanks. I'll keep my e cig.

Does that vapor that is exhaled have nicotine in it?

From the Ruyan study. Comments. Inhaled nicotine in cigarette smoke is over 98% absorbed 6, and so the exhaled mist of the e-cigarette is composed of propylene glycol, and probably contains almost no nicotine; and no CO. (see Figure 3.5) Lacking any active ingredient or any gaseous products of combustion, the PG mist or ‘smoke’ is not harmful to bystanders.

If that number is accurate, and let's assume that it is, what is a safe level of nicotine to be exposed to? How about children?

I guess I haven't heard that exposure to modest levels of nicotine is hazardous.I would not vape around children just like not smoking around kids. The e cig community is completely in favor of age restrictions regarding minors. My concern is the erosion of freedoms that adults have. Injecting children into the discussion is something that is frequently done. I have kids, Nobody wants to put kids in harms way. For me this includes living in a free country with with a nanny state that continues to limit the freedoms that we are allowed. That is also to kids. Smoking tobacco kills and it's not the nicotine that's doing it.
