Hookahs are NOT electronic cigarettes (e-cigs). E-Cigs are a Harm reduction alternative to tobacco cigarettes and are a thousand+ to one less harmful than tobacco. Tobacco companies want to continue to have customers they can murder and plant negative stories about e-cigs, while at the same time buying up or starting cig-a-like companies. Smokers, if you can't quit, try vaping (e-cigs), you will be amazed at how quickly your health will turn around and the money you will save on healthcare and not buying tobacco anymore. Smoked for 35 years & will never go back, can't even stand the smell anymore.
