Is Big Tobacco Trying to Ban E-cigarettes?

RJ Reynolds wants to restrict e-cigarettes

Professor John Aston recently had to resign his post as the President of a major public health department after a Twitter spat in which, amongst other things, he strongly insinuated commentators criticising his position on e-cigarettes were working for the tobacco industry.

But that idea sounds like pure nonsense. We are far from convinced Big Tobacco is on the side of e-cigarettes which are a minor side-line for them and much less profitable.

And now some of these fears are given some support, as detailed in this blog, in which the biggest tobacco company is actually trying to push its fully disposable e-cigs over the less profitable, refillable kinds or those with swappable cartomisers.
