Dear ABC News Fixer: Burning Over E-Cigarette Problem
But she's also seen other local merchants selling similar devices specifically designed for marijuana and hash. There are devices, vaporizers Curious How E-Cigarettes Work? Learn Now! Buy Online, Get A Deal! and the like, that are sold specifically for such purposes, said a woman who identified herself only as Ashley, who works at a local smoke shop. She says those devices are growing in popularity, especially in states where medical marijuana is legal. When you have the ability to have a vaporizer, it just creates a vapor free of chemicals. It's a healthy alternative, no matter what you put in it, Ashley said. Because the regulations aren't there to keep the kids from purchasing or even getting their hands on them, it's really getting to be dangerous, said Brittany McNaughton of the Hillsborough County Anti-Drug Alliance. Recent surveys indicate nearly a third of Hillsborough County high school students admit they've used marijuana.

What Are E-cigarettes and Why Are They Here?
Dear Cassandra: These "free trial" offers can be a bit tricky more on that in a sec but you had a different problem: The product apparently was defective from the start. That seemed like a pretty good reason to ask for your money back. We emailed No Flame E-Cigarette and heard back from Sasha Dyroff, quality assurance representative. After we explained your troubles, Dyroff offered a full refund and said you don't have to send back the broken item. (You've since received the full $109.67.) But you aren't the only consumer who's annoyed with No Flame E-Cigarette's sales plan. The Better Business Bureau of Southeast Florida and the Caribbean recently posted a consumer alert about the business, and gave it an "F" rating after getting 324 complaints about the business over the past year.
