Ok vapers, its official… News anchors from the Associated Press, a well known news source, can’t do math. In this little news clip the news reporter actually says that electronic cigarettes cost more than tobacco cigarettes. This can only lead to one conclusion. The guy does not own a calculator and has failed at simple math. Lets look at the numbers…

A traditional pack of tobacco cigarettes in my city Jacksonville, Florida is well over 5$ a pack but to keep the math simple for the new reporters at associated press we will round down to 5. Being in the southern states this is the low end of the scale for cost of cigarettes as well. The average person who smokes will smoke close to a pack of cigarettes a day. Over a years time a typical smoker in Jacksonville will spend more than $1825. Now lets look at how much someone would spend using an electronic cigarette. The typical starter kit for a premium e-cig is about 100$ then the cost refill cartridges or refilling your own which is even cheaper is around 2$ a day. Factor in some 10$ battery replacements a couple times a year and I came to $930 and added a 100$ on top just for variances and we come to HALF the cost of tobacco cigarettes and that is compared to one of the cheaper states. In the northern states tobacco cigarettes cost more than 10$ a pack which would make electronic cigarettes only a 4th of the cost!

Now using the math above can someone please explain to me why the associated press would release a story that is incredibly false since anyone with simple math skills can easily see that electronic cigarettes are way cheaper than tobacco cigarettes? My 10 year old niece can do the math required to prove this story wrong. These things seriously disturb me. “Hey associated press… The above paragraph is what we call research! How about we do some before we just say whatever we want huh?”
