Its not due to any deep rooted urge to hurt those around you or being an anti-social psychopath. Its just natural curiosity about what would happen if you, or anyone really, just did something so completely out of context and shocking.
Or you're like a lot of families who only get together for Christmas because you hate each other.

A random, somewhat similar thought:

I quit smoking about 2 years ago, but I still use Nicorette gum. Not all the time or anything, but when I sit down to play a poker session, I always pop in a couple of 4mg Nicorettes. Maybe 1-2 other times a day besides my poker session as well. I've always wondered why they sell this for like $60 for a big box that they keep behind the counter. Sell packs of 20 pieces for like 2-3 bucks or whatever and put them with the rest of the candy/gum. Make all sorts of different flavors, etc. The main marketing goal shouldn't be help people overcome their addiction to cigarettes, it should be to get new people addicted to the gum. I don't ever see my self quitting this stuff. I get pretty much all the positives of smoking without any of the health risks. If they market this stuff more as recreational thing than as a medical thing, I think they'd do quite well.

adebisi - Pretty sure it would be illegal for them to sell this up front with the regular gum. You can't sell nicotine to kids. Putting it in with the candy and the regular gum would effectively be attempting to market it to kids. It's pretty much the same reason you can't put the cigarettes down there next to the gum either.

FWIW, I think you are really incorrect when you say that you aren't getting ANY of the health risks.

They used to do exactly that in some places. I remember when i was like 12-13 I used to shoplift packs of cigarettes from the check-out aisle in the grocery store. They had them right out there next to the candy/gum/batteries/tabloids.

My post was a bit tongue-in-cheek in terms of putting it out with the candy, but I still think if they advertised as a much safer alternative to cigarettes, an "all of the enjoyment, none of the tumors" type thing, and sold it in packs of 20 for 3 bucks in every gas station and convenience store, they'd make a lot more money than they do now.

The point of my idea is to show that there are more possibility to the technology. It could really change many things in the tobacco industry. Second hand smoke would not but a huge problem anymore because the "smoke" generated by the cigarettes is really vapor. This could also lower tobacco smoke pollution and potentially reduce the danger of smoking.

A point was made that this has been made, but I'm trying to say there can be more to this instead of just nicotine vapor. You can have flavored tobacco and flavored marijuana if it becomes legalized. Right now, The choices of the flavors and nicotine packets are dull and tasteless. This could also change hookah smoking, for all the hookah lovers out there, imagine if you can light up a flavor of your favorite hookah anywhere anytime without really harming anyone or have anyone complain about the smoke around you.

Currently the e-cigs are marketed as a means to stop smoking, but I'm saying this can be changed into a tool for the future tobacco binge that we, smokers, can enjoy. It gives the same buzz as a whatever you like to smoke or even stronger if the company decides to have different strengths of the product, like salvia. And you can enjoy it without all the other harmful carcinogens. Tobacco addiction without deaths and cancer would = a longer term customer than the average tobacco smoker now which = more revenue and a more longer term and higher ROI for future investors.
