Despite containing the harmful stimulant nicotine, e-cigarettes actually may be a form of medicine. The line between medicine and everything else is actually a lot blurrier than it may first appear. Dish soap with antibacterial ingredients is considered an over-the-counter drug under the law, but it’s almost always going to be shelved with cleaning products rather than medicines. Similar to how a doctor may prescribe a massage for back pain even though massage therapists are not medical professionals, recommending a switch to vaping might be justified because it’s considered to be at least 95 percent safer than combustible cigarettes.
