Smoking can now kill you in more ways than one!

A man named Josh Hamilton — no, not the actor — was minding his own business over the weekend when he walked into a convenience store for a snack and walked out with third degree burns.

Apparently, the Kentucky native was carrying an electronic cigarette in his pocket, and when he reached in to grab some change, the lithium ion battery exploded through his pants!

Josh immediately ran outside where the cashier used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames — but he still had to go to the hospital to treat his wounds.

FDA To Regulate E-Cigarettes

FDA To Regulate E-Cigarettes

The FDA has decided that e-cigarettes = regular cigarettes.

Or at least for the most part.

They intend to start regulating e-cigarettes in the same way they regulate regular cigarettes and other tobacco products.

While at first glance it seems like e-cigarette makers would be pissed about this, they’re all actually pretty happy about it because it legitimizes their product in the eyes of consumers.

E-cigarettes are thought to be healthier than normal cigarettes because the smoker mostly just inhales pure nicotine, giving them their fix without the tobacco.
