    Hi Valis.
    The UK are in the throughs Of drugs manufactured from legal products by chemist from garden insectasides plant food and the list is endless there have been many deaths from teen and school children users in UK and ireland who think that they are SAFE as they are advertised as legal. Ireland are the first Country in europe to have totaly baned the sale of Legal Highs (psychoactive (brain altering) drugs) here is a link to some more accurate infomation . http://www.talktofrank.com/drug/legal-highs and it looks like they are moveing over you side of the Big Water.
    I hope you and yours are all well
    Regards
    Rex.

    Post this to your MP and maybe something will eventually get done.
    I suspect the rest of the world have the same problem.

    Hay I like a fat line of MEOW MEOW just as much as the next guy. But the simple truth is that if regular illeghal highs were legal and controlled by the gouvernment, nobody would resort to these dangerous research chemicals.

    Legalise Drugs!!! please use responcibley :)

    I'm afraid that I am in agreement. I am, at this moment, about to lose a daughter to a cigarette related cancer. I feel that nothing will stop stupid people taking dangerous drugs, so perhaps we should legalise all of them and, at least, we would know what was happening, and it would stop the crime associated with them.

    I have just read an article about the dangers of e cigarettes. It is not the nicotine that is the trouble, but the other things that are added. I then went on to read as much as I could about these problems. Apparently nicotine only substitutes for smoking are the best way to kick the habit. This seemed logical to me. Nicotine being the addictive substance, why not just try to wean people off of one thing only? By the way, there were lots of letters from people, presumably smokers, saying cigarette smoking is not harmful. I was really amazed at that.

    Basically there is NO CONTROL whatsoever over what chemicals can be included in E-cigarettes
    I've banned them in my house - even more than tobacco which is not totally banned.
