Seen it all now. I'd have expected the following sales tactics in Tesco, but right now in your local Co-op (certainly in the one on Southwark Bridge Road) you can find e-cigarettes right there on the front counter as easily asccessible to 10 year olds as bubble gum and tic-tac mints, and just as legal to buy.

I'll leave it for you all to make up your minds about exactly how socially responsible the Co-op is when it openly peddles addictive drugs among the sweets. Maybe Mr Flowers, the crystal methodist, has now moved to running the confectionary department, and is determined to make money this time.

I think most people consider e-cigarettes an alternative to smoking, as a way for people to quit. I'm with you though, they should be hidden away with the normal cigarettes.

I think the e-cigarrete business consider them a quick way to vast profits on the back of nicotine addled addicts.
