Since 2006, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have been increasingly marketed in the United States and are becoming popular with smokers (many of whom are now former smokers thanks to e-cigarettes).

Lawmakers are being inundated with model legislation from lobbyists and representatives of public health organizations to restrict sales, advertising and public use of electronic cigarettes. Unfortunately, most of the information provided to lawmakers is from special interests that have a clear agenda against tobacco harm reduction policies and/or financial ties to industries that sell products that are in direct competition with e-cigarettes.

WSAC has leadership with over half a decade of tobacco harm reduction advocacy experience and is Wisconsin’s only e-cigarette and smoke-free alternatives organization. This website answers the most common questions and responds to claims made about harm reduction and e-cigarettes.

Membership is FREE!

  • Population-Level Proof: E-Cigarettes Are Popular & Successful Quit-Smoking Aids
    Tobacco harm reduction opponents have belittled reported use of e-cigarettes as smoking cessation aids, dismissing case studies as mere “anecdotes” (here) and claiming a lack of population evidence to support a quit-smoking claim.  Now that evidence exists.In a just published study, my colleague Nantaporn Plurphanswat and I use federal government data to dem […]
