Updated October 18, 2018 2.9k views8 items

Okay, so maybe there are only a few politicians that openly vape, but several politicians vocally support vaping. And it's not just US politicians, either; some of these pro-vaping politicians are from the UK as well.

Who will you find on this "politicians who are pro-vaping" list? Donald Trump is viewed as the most pro-vaping candidate of the 2016 presidential race because he is in favor of fewer regulations on vaping. In 2016, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) actually vaped during a hearing in which he argued against an amendment to ban vaping on planes.

Former UK Prime Minister David Cameron endorsed vaping as a way to help people quit smoking. He said, "Certainly as somebody who has been through this battle a number of times, eventually relatively successfully, lots of people find different ways of doing it and certainly for some people e-cigarettes are successful."
