E-cigarettes designed to help people quit smoking may act as a ”gateway” to harmful illicit drugs, researchers have said.
Like conventional cigarettes, the devices are said to raise the risk of addiction to banned substances such as cannabis and cocaine.
Scientists pointed out that while eliminating many of the toxic compounds found in tobacco, e-cigarettes delivered highly addictive ”pure nicotine”.
In mice, nicotine was found to alter brain biochemistry and prime the animals to develop a need for cocaine.
So, smoking incidence has fallen in recent decades. Cocaine use is up. Tehrefore smoking leads to cocaine use.
Do fuck off you ghastly little wankers.
