    Hey fellas. Just wanted to see if anyone wanted to talk about what is going on with the proposed flavored vaping ban. I posted this to the smoking thread but i think this is more appropriate.

    Short version, Illicit THC/Vitamin E pods are killing people and the sledgehammer response from the US is to ban everything. Germany, UK, others have recognized in some cases 9 deaths of adolescents from THC infused products. This sucks. The other arguments adults don’t like flavor, save the kids, are just a cover up. It sucks. Smoking has dropped 29 percent and these products save lives. This is harm reduction. Not oxygen. But if people care, check out:

    http://www.casaa.org/news/trump-administrations-ban-on-flavored-e-cigarettes-does-more-harm/

    I dont invest or own a shop. Just want to pass on an awareness. Fear of loss of control and profits is what this is really about.

    I wouldn’t ban it outright, but I could see a 21yr old limit on them. Get them out of the high schools completely. Exempt for active military. Old enough to die, old enough for everything in my book.

    #5 1 year ago

    For me, its about a better alternative that has been backed without money and hidden motives. Science and doctors. Don’t kids do whatever they want anyhow? I mean they do things. We don’t ban Jaegermeister and Fireball. I like a flavor.

    Douche bags come in all shapes and sizes, people crave attention and teens blowing vapor clouds is a personal accountability and respect issue with the teen. Not an adult outside a pin show or bar or house. IMHO

    #12 1 year ago

    When government agencies figure out a way to cash in on it, they will not only keep it legal, but will encourage it.

    #13 1 year ago

    Kids that likely would NOT have started smoking are starting to vape. That’s terrible. That needs legislation. Greed and corruption will influence that but doesn’t make it 100% wrong.

    #14 1 year ago

    Zero nic vape juice is exempt from any ruling.

    Ultra light or unflavored nic juice is protected

    Just mix it yoursrlf.

    Any ban will have no effect on vaping whatsoever.

    Banning flavored nic juice, other than menthol is already the law.

    Flavored cigarettes are illegal by federal law, therefore flavored nic juice should already be illegal by federal law.

    The law is easily skirted legally.

    It will have no effect on vaping.

    They are trying to ban flavored juices but only certain states have had a rash reaction. Just sucks a less harmful option to breathing in heavy toxins and tar is being rejected due to personal accountability and some vape companies apparently pushing unethical marketing. Im a cord cutter, no commercials, no magazines. No fm radio. I do my own research and havent seen a commercial for an F150 in a LONG time. Michigan just pushed a flavor ban a day or two ago. This topic is extremely current

    They are finding nicotine in nicotine free vape products...

    Besides that, who cares if the vapor they inhale is just a mix of unknown chemicals right? WTF? How does anyone defend vaping for kids?

    I think it’s odd to ban vaping but not cigarettes.

    I also think vaping sales should be 19+ (or whatever your local age of majority is)

    It’s tragic that lives have been lost due to vaping related injuries, but, vaping is less harmful then smoking. The problem is unregulated e-juice production. Find the chemical (probably the glycol) additive causing the health concerns and remove it.

    Analogy time. Aerosol containers used to be filled with CFC’s. They didn’t ban spray paint, they removed the harmful chemicals.

    How exactly is vaping less harmful than smoking?

    I get the fact you're not burning treated paper and inhaling smoke, but, what are you inhaling now?

    Truth is, you don't really know.

    I don't smoke or vape, so I'll just carry on, but I'm hoping you can wait a decade until some true results of vaping are known.

    #21 1 year ago
    Quoted from RonSS:

    This stuff has been around for a decade already.. maybee longer? I was a heavy smoker for over 15 years and quit 6 years ago. I used vaping for somewhere between a year and a year and a half as a crutch before quitting that also. Even back then there were times I experienced shortness of breath from vaping... I never experienced things to that degree w/ cigarettes... Vaping is not as safe as it’s being sold to be.

    #22 1 year ago
    Quoted from RonSS:

    what are you inhaling now?

    Easy, Whatever chemicals you put into your vape.

    Ive been vaping shatter (refined, concentrated cannabis) for over a year now. I don’t use thc “vape pins” they’re usually blended with a thinning agent like glycol or medium chain triglycerides (MCT oil). But I’ve been thinking about pressing my own rosin from plan matter, that way I’m sure that there are no additives.

    I have a friend who used an e-juice vape to quit smoking cigarettes, he’s reduced his nicotine intake to 0 now, but I still see him vaping flavored e-juice when he drinks, I guess it’s better then going back to cigarettes, but it razz him pretty hard when he makes giant clouds of strawberry.

    #23 1 year ago

    I certainly can agree on keeping this away from kids, but one issue is the quantity of smoke generated from larger tanks and heating units. We dont smoke, like the gif below, with cigarettes.....match the amount and frequency of billowing clouds with tobacco.
    Our lungs would cough out.
    But with vaping, Im seeing huge volume. I believe the death and illness is not only the chemicals, but the volume and frequency.

    States don't have a age limit? Up here in Canada it's 18 or 19 depending on province you live to buy it. Personally I hate the smell of cigarettes but I think these tutti fruity candy ass vape smells are worse. There's no laws against doing it in public so some dumbasses proceed to blow their clouds in the bar or line in Wal-Mart. Losers. Go outside like the smokers.

    Now get off my lawn

    Inhaling anything besides air into your lungs is a bad idea. And sometimes the air isn't in the greatest shape, either.

    Problem is they won't know the damage for a few years yet, but early studies aren't good.

    I’d rather the government not *ban* anything. Let people make their own decisions, even bad ones. Use the FDA to control ingredient safety.

    True. Although given how bad smoking tobacco is for you, vaping has its work cut out for it if it wants to be worse.

    I love how it's still ok to sell candy flavored liquor and "wine coolers". Every year kids die from alcohol poisoning and no one seems to care.

    Non nicotine juice is unregulated. If it contains any nicotine, it's regulated.

    The company "juul" has been fined millions of dollars for advertising to kids. That company is owned by big tobacco. Big tobacco is purposely making vape look bad while funding the ban on the other end. Classic lobbying. Americans are too busy posting pictures of food or keeping up with the Kardashians to be aware of anything. Land of the free to be stupid.

    #45 1 year ago

    I think anything should be legal to put in your own body if you're 18+. If you're dumb enough to ingest something that will kill you, it's nobody elses business to stop you. Also if you do something unhealthy, you shouldn't get the same medical benefits at the same cost as healthy people.

    I've never smoked, drank alcohol, or done any drugs, but if I did vape I'd want candy/fruit flavors. Likewise if I ever drank alcohol.

    I own a couple thousand shares of Altria. Altria owns 35% of Juul. I think it's a toss-up at this point if they'd prefer for Juul to go away. They did pay something like $18 billion for their stake in them.
