In brief: Probably - Addictive

Yes, they are promoted as safer because of lack of many oxidation byproducts produced by burning tobacco ; this is true.
They supply nicotine to keep the addition going but the industry has not performed any clinical trials to evaluate the pros ; cons. Thus the conclusion, through presumably reasonable, is presumptive, not tested, without known reliability ; largely exempted by dshea act 1994.
