Re "Lawmakers move to impose regulations on e-cigs" (Business, May 5): Want to put up more rules and regulations on electronic cigarettes? There should only be some of those for E-cigarettes because the FDA found no health risk resulting from the use of E-cigarettes.

Unlike regular cigarettes, they are not regulated or banned and are used at most places in public besides inside a building. If they ban E-cigarettes, they should ban regular cigarettes because they actually cause harm to the users and to people around them.

If E-cigarettes help benefit the users, let them use it. Why should the government ban something that can potentially help smokers quit or even reduce smoking for better health?
