In order to attract a number of teenagers, the e-cigarette companies are marketing different flavours of cigarettes like the cotton candy and the bubble gum. As these e-cigarettes are considered as one of the best alternatives for traditional tobacco cigarettes, still they are in the business of selling addictive drug- nicotine.
