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!

    It seems that the campaign for a bottle deposit scheme has already reached the reductio ad tobacco stage...Supermarkets have been warned they will be demonised alongside tobacco and oil firms if they fail to back a deposit and return scheme for plastic drinks bottles and cans.

  • Bizarre FDA vaping retail restrictions more likely to do harm than good
    Caught in its auto-induced moral panic about the teen vaping epidemic, the FDA has decided that it would be better if certain vaping products were harder to get hold of than cigarettes, and the ones that were easiest to get hold of should be the ones most like cigarettes – tobacco and menthol flavour.
