Makers claim it's 100% legal
If E-Cigarettes satisfy the cravings of smokers attempting to quit, then the E-Joint satisfies those who want to smoke marijuana without the health risks attached to tobacco. This is a real thing, and it comes from Holland.

It’s actually called the E-NJoint and is produced by a company called E-NJoint BV. They produce 10,000 joints every day which are rolled out across Europe. It comes in different flavours and contains no THC, tobacco or nicotine, making it totally legal.
Over 2 million people currently enjoy E-cigs in the U.K, but last summer the World Health Organisation “strongly advised” against using e-cigs until they had been fully vetted. Spokesman Glenn Thomas said: “The science around the safety of e-cigarettes has not been demonstrated. A lot of the toxins which are consumed through e-cigarettes have not been adequately researched.”
E-Njoint CEO Menno Contant said: “Holland is well known in the world for its tolerant and liberal attitude toward soft drugs and the introduction of this new product clearly makes a statement: As long as you don’t bother or disturb other people and stay within the legal boundaries, all is well. Developed, manufactured and sold at lightning speed. Everyone should feel fine, because what we are doing is no crime," Contant continued.
BV is currently in talks with the medical cannabis company, Tikun Olam with a view to making the E-Njoint a viable as a health product. Some U.S states already allow the consumption of marijuana for medical purposes, while others – like Colorado – have decriminalized the substance entirely.
In fact, Colorado’s recreational pot smoking legislation pulled in millions of dollars in tax revenue, with 10% of that going towards the building and maintenance of local schools.
