EU cracks down on e-cigarettes

The corruption-riddled European Commission isn't just "owned" by Big Pharma, which makes, among other things, nicotine patches. It's owned by Big Tobacco too. This is from Roger Helmer MEP's latest blog entry -

"The EU is not proposing to 'ban' e-cigarettes. But they’re going to treat them as pharmaceutical products. That means that they’ll only be available in pharmacies. It means that there will be very heavy approval costs for each brand and type of e-cigarette. That in effect will raise huge barriers to entry, and mean that only very large and prosperous companies will be able to enter the market. Companies like the existing tobacco firms."
