Default OT Vaping has more nicotine than cigarettes!

Vaping has more nicotine than cigarettes!

How did this ever get allowed? It's one thing when there is an
established business, employees, stockholders, growers, paper makers,
who would lose if a business is banned, and even then lots of
restrictions were put on it.

But they've let vaping begin and run unchecked, advertising to children
(no matter what they say.) By use of flavors, bubble gum, unicorn,
french toast, and others.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was supposed to be a safe way
to get off cigarettes, but it seems it's the opposite.

Other flavor, fudge. What sort of grown man or woman wants fudge or
bubble gum flavored smoking. (And what does a unicorn taste like?) And
the gov of Carolina? says that if you ask children why they vape, it's
because of the flavors.

Also designed to look like juice box, complete with straw on the
outside.

Others designed to look like a USB backup drive, and the ad shows
someone saying "Mom, it's a USB drive" in order to fool his concerned
mother. Teaching the kids to lie, great.

And then the CEO's say it's not advertised to chidren. Also teaches the
kids to lie.

I am not sure I ever heard that (safe way to get off cigarettes).
It is just a way to ingest nicotine without smoking it, like the gum.

This surprises you?

IDK, because the govt wasn't screwy lib, AOC style and they figured
they should leave people up to their own choices? Does it not register
with you libs, that if it had half the nicotine, then they would smoke
two?

It's been years since it got started so it's hard to remember details,
but after I posted there was an interview where the guy said what I had
thought. Whether the guy was just a man on the street or someone who
knows a bit more, I don't know. (I'm usually reading or writing on the
computer when I listen to the radio, or eating dinner and reading the
newspaper. So I miss the first half of a sentence pretty often.

Sometimes NPR plays the same series of stories between 8 and 9 am, and
again between 9 and 10, and sometimes my ears pick up at the first trace
of the story I partially heard the previous hour, but other times, my
ears don't notice until the same place I noticed the first time.

Other times I google to get the details, but for one thing, it can be
hard to find out what was thought years ago. .

It is just a way to ingest nicotine without smoking it, like the gum.


Was there even an attmpt in Congress to regulate it like cigarettes are.
Seem to me the resistance would have been much less because it was a
baby industry. Not many people were making money on it, adn only a
little bit. Now it will be harder.

Smoking and vaping are for stupid people who want to commit suicide slowly.

Since more people are killed by tobacco use than by guns, the gun-grabbin jackasses should work on banning tobacco before they go after the law-abiding citizens guns.

As long as gum is totally unregulated nicotine addiction will be
there. I know people who have been chewing 20 or more a day for 20
years. They have health problems too but like smokers, they will deny
it until it kills them.
