Note to people interested in IQOS: it is not vaping but a proprietary heated tobacco system by Philip Morris tobacco empire that aims to perpetuate the addictive effects of tobacco use while protecting their profit margins. Be mindful of Philip Morris' agenda and past practices if you choose to become their customer.
Here are a few common vegetables and plants shown to have nicotine content.

Feel free to inform yourself more on the effects of nicotine. It's no longer 1950s.
No useful purpose besides being effective in helping smokers to quit the toxic habit of smoking that kills every other smoker (slowly and painfully) and causes enormous cost to public health care.
Vaping serves no useful purpose and is harmful to health. Excellent decision to ban it.
According to studies there are basically no traces of toxins in exhaled vapour while tobacco smoke laced with combustion particles carries various carcinogenic substances. Inhaled "e-cigarette" vapour is estimated to be at least 95% less harmful than tobacco smoke.
Big Tobacco and Big Pharma are engaged in a propaganda campaign to maintain status quo where smoking is widely tolerated but inexplicably vaping is vilified through dodgy sponsored research which gets published in tabloids. They stand to lose massively if smoking and the associated chronic diseases was replaced by far less harmful alternative.
Even the intentionally misconfigured vapes in discredited sponsored "research" contain less carcinogens inhaled than your everyday traffic exhaust, fried or deep-friend foods or industrial pollutants affecting everyone.
Choosing to crusade against massive personal harm reduction with no external effects is slightly odd if one lacks the profit motive of big tobacco and big pharma.
British Heart Foundation: Is vaping safe?
(Again note that this refers to vaping and not tobacco products like IQOS)
Martin Dockrell, Tobacco Control Programme Lead at PHE, said: We know that e-cigarettes are probably not completely safe, but thats not the issue. The question is, are e-cigarettes safer than the alternative? And, for almost all e-cigarette users the alternative is smoking, and it's really important that they understand how much safer e-cigarettes are, compared to smoking".
