In Mexico, e-cigarettes kill you?

/In Mexico, e-cigarettes kill you?


You thought anti-vapor campaigns in the USA were bad?
You thought you had seen it all with the CA campaigns?
And now there is this. Wow. Just… wow.

If any of our Spanish speaking advocates and vapers are willing to lend a hand to respectfully educate some members of the Mexican government that would be wonderful. It is really interesting and very telling to see this level of corruption going on, especially considering that the lady in the ad has a clear conflict of interest considering she runs a health spa that provides a 7-day smoking cessation program. At the cost of what amounts to about $1,500 (which compared to income standards in Mexico is exhorbitant).
