    Trump's crackdown on flavored vaping products unlikely to take effect soon

    Disclaimer: I don’t vape and I find them annoying at the smoke pit.

    However, this shit is ridiculous. Why can’t a grown adult vape on some cherry pie pussy flavored juice if they so please? Is Trump really what we want? Haven’t seen anything yet...but what if he pushes for universal background checks?

    Personally, I don't care for Vaping and find it annoying.

    If you do it in public, fine. Don't do it near people that don't like it because you think you're entitled.

    At least, the vapes with nicotine that kids can buy apparently should be banned for certain ages.

    A ban is a bit extreme, but, at least have enforceable laws. No restuarants, certain places, work, etc. Do that shit on your own time away from crowds, especially when asked not to do it.

    I don’t care either way but lean toward the “no ban” side.

    Vaping is as ghey as the man bun. Kids should not be allowed to buy such crap but institute laws and such to prevent it. If adults want to kill themselves, go for it.

    I really dont care about people wanting to vape. But the issue i see are people vaping everywhere. Areas where kids are, theme parks, baseball games, ect. They need to treat them like cigarettes. Have them in designated areas. Not a fan of banning. But i dont have an issue with regulating them.

    All I heard was how dare them make Coke, Heroine, Meth illegal. Let a junky die if he wants to. Exactly where do we draw the line when it comes to death?

    Vaping should not be banned, if people want to be gay, let them be in peace.

    this is the insanity of the nanny state. its not the state's job to regulate what we do. its their job to punish evil and reward good. these are VERY different things.
    so sick of this stupidity.

    He seems to have opinions on certain topics very hastily.

    Almost like his thoughts on silencers. Then he backtracks.

    you don't. if you want to do stupid things that end your life that is your choice.

    why the hell can a woman kill her child in this country but you can't do stupid stuff that MIGHT kill you?

    insanity. that's why. arbitrary nonsensical bullshit.

    The problem is that the flavored shit it is aimed at getting kids addicted to nicotine. They were developed to get adults off cigs.

    You mean treat it like cigarettes?

    Vaping is for the gheys but who gives a shit what someone does with their own life. They have the freedom and liberty to choose to look like a douche if they want. Should not be banned because a dozen people across the nation died from shit inside the vape juice. A lot more people die from prescription drugs than vaping.

    Nicotine is already restricted to Minors, as is vaping. Minors do it, because you just get a parent or friend to buy it. I'm sure you can also order supplies online.

    As banning in public places, I almost feel, leave that to the business.

    Yes, 30 years ago everyone smoked so it was hard to convince a place to not permit smoking for fear of lost revenue. Times and habits have changed. We'd much rather die of diabetes and obesity at 60 instead of lung cancer and heart attacks at 65.

    Yup, and they only died because they basically did the shit by the metric ton.

    Why is it we encourage people to cut their dicks odd, live obese unhealthy lives and die their hair blue. But lord have mercy they want a fast car or a ****ing cigarette.

    Obviously. And again, as I said in my post, banning is a bit extreme.

    However, you can literally buy them just about anywhere and in the short amount of time it has been out on the market, it has killed a LOT of people and injured a lot.

    Then again, I don't care if people die by doing something they choose to do that is bad for them. Everyone can make their own choice.

    They were designed for people to get off of cigarettes, but, are not treated as such.

    That is a huge load of BS.

    Yeah, no, they even wrap it to look like candy. A lot of these kids don't even know vape has nicotine (extremely addictive!) in it! They know exactly what they are doing marketing wise because the cigarette companies did all the heavy lifting on how to do it years ago.

    Please source and quantify "killed a LOT".

    Vaping has been out 15 years and I have heard of more people getting killed and mauled by gators and mountain lions then I have gay pipes.


    Proof? Certianly people marketed that way, but also plenty of people picked it up out of the blue. Also, most people that vape don't smoke or did stop smoking. The argument is, vaping is safer then smoking because you are not taking in tar, ash, arcnic, etc. It's just vaporization of nicotine, which is what it is.

    The vaporization process is not unique and is a legitimate way to induce medication in certain forms of treatment.

    The biggest issues with vaping is,

    1. Personal Modifications
    A. Increase Dosage
    B. Increase "cloud"
    C. Increase Pressure
    D. Custom Juice so your drinking 3redbulls and five cigarettes in 3 puffs

    2. Juice Solutions
    A. People mix Nicotine, Tarrine and Caffeine
    B. Flavors are made from God knows what
    C. People don't use distilled water
    D. THC and other illegal substances

    3. Chinese Mechanics
    A. Shit Quality Control
    B. No Standards, No brands to Sue
    C. Lithium Batteries - same issue other devices have with to much heat and energy resulting in leakes, fires and explosions.

    To this, how is it any different then smoking?

    If you suck down a carton a day and 5 Redbull and a 5th of Vodka, you'll ****ing die in short order.

    If you fall asleep smoking, you'll burn to death in your house.

    Ironically you have places like San Francisco bamijg vaping while legalizing weed and supporting fentanyl usage....
