E-cigarettes this, e-cigarettes that…over the past few years, the trend has exploded, and now we see them everywhere from bars to cars. People use e-cigarettes for a variety of reasons – to quit smoking, or just as a safer alternative, to smoke indoors or in crowded venues where the smoke could bother others, or to prevent their children from inhaling secondhand smoke.
Scientists and health professionals have been warning us that not enough research has been done, and the devices simply haven’t been around long enough, to know whether e-cigarettes are truly a healthy alternative to cigarettes. We’re fans of the devices (although prefer Advanced Personal Vaporizers for more serious vapers), and we know you guys are too, so we thought we’d do a little research and let you know what we find.

When Upworthy posted a selection from Emily Baxter’s art project, “We Are All Criminals,” we wonder if they anticipated such a wave of negative feedback (on Facebook, that is, where it’s too easy to forget that you should never read the comments).
You might remember when New York Times writer Maureen Dowd ignorantly consumed an entire edible – way more than the suggested dosage – and had an 8-hour anxiety attack. We know it sounds harsh calling Maureen ignorant, especially when the packaging of this particular edible doesn’t do much to call attention to the candy’s high concentration of THC. But let’s call a spade a spade. When was the last time you decided to do some drugs without asking any questions? If you did, and you enjoyed the experience, you should thank your lucky stars.
“But it’s legal! We shouldn’t have to ask questions about it!” Okay, think about that statement, and then take some personal responsibility.
But okay, okay, honestly, we’re glad Colorado and Washington are playing the guinea pigs of marijuana legalization. They’re staking out uncharted territory and figuring
