Anyone slightly in the know within this industry knows there are a few aspects that are still widely up in the air, predominantly the health impacts of electronic cigarettes, how much better they are for anyone as opposed to tobacco cigarettes, how and if the FDA will regulate the products, and if there will be legislature restricting their use in any public places.

Those are the key highlights that are floating around, with many in speculation.

As for proponents of the industry, and there are quite a lot, which may hint at why any massive decisions about any of the aforementioned aspects, may have been stalled, things do look good, with both positive speculations in industry growth, along with seeing essentially all the biggest manufacturers of tobacco cigarettes jumping on board, such as the manufacturer of Marlboro cigarettes, as well as the manufacturer of Camel cigarettes.

There are also some notable movements within media and entertainment, such as Playboy launching their own brand, as well as certain headlines such as Sean Parker being noted as sending $75 million towards the development of Njoy.
