While the war over the use and taxation of electronic cigarettes wages, Dutch company E-njoint has started selling a new marijuana-flavored “e-joint” that will almost certainly lead to controversial legal battles over their distribution and use in states across the nation.

Like e-cigarettes, the e-joint uses a liquid composed of propylene glycol, glycerin, and flavoring that is then vaporized into water vapor to produce an experience that mimics smoking without many of the harmful effects.

According to a March 5 press release from E-njoint, the e-joint “contains no THC, CBD, nicotine, tar or toxins. [It’s] completely legal, but [it] still gives smokers a high-like feeling.”

Previous versions of the e-joint, which is built to look and feel like a typical marijuana cigarette, provided a fruit flavoring, but E-njoint’s most recent model includes organic compounds that the company claims gives the user a “cannabis aroma and flavor.”

According to E-njoint, only one store in America currently sells e-joints. If you’re not really into that sort of thing there are some amazing flavours of eliquid on sale at www.gourmeteliquid.co.uk which should be much more suitable to your taste buds.

E-cigarettes have faced much scrutiny since being released in the United States. The American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids have all openly denounced the use of e-cigarettes as a sort of gateway product to using tobacco or other drugs.

The Food and Drug Administration even initially ruled the products were “drug or delivery device[s]” that should not be available to the public. In 2010, a federal court ruled the agency did not have the authority to rule on the use of e-cigarettes, opening the way for e-cigarette use by consumers throughout the country. READ MORE …
