So-called E-cigarettes are marketed as a “safe” alternative to tobacco cigarettes. They’re not. In fact, E-cigarettes have proven to be quite hazardous. Direct exposure to the liquid nicotine in E-cigarette cartridges is potentially deadly, and the cartridges break. The danger is heightened because E-cigarette cartridges come in a variety of flavors, piquing the curiosity of children. Earlier this year, the Minnesota Department of Health posted a “nicotine health advisory” that shows E-cigarette-related nicotine poisonings among Minnesota children five and younger have increased from three in 2012 to 46 in 2013 and 62 in 2014. Minnesota officials said that for a 22 pound child, 1/15 of a teaspoon of liquid nicotine is a lethal dosage.
