Outlaw the cigarettes...?...doubtful...it is sanctioned by the FEDS. They make WAY too much money in TAXES...its not about what is RIGHT...it is about MONEY. Anyone who thinks smoking is something GOOD that should be FOUGHT FOR(in a court of law) is DELUSIONAL.
A serious chest complaint has, in the past week, been linked to no fewer than 35 brands of e-cigarettes.
Since "vaping" was, like nicotine patches, supposed to be a stepping stone to giving up cigarettes, the entire e-cigarette industry is as guilty as the tobacco industry of using mis-leading advertising to create addiction whilst creating a "fashion image".
Correctly, e-cigarettes should be subject to a prescription, subject to requiring renewal after 3 months.
Personally, I think they should ban tabacco products where they have manipulated them to be more addictive. For many years it is has been known that the so-called flavoring and chimcal additives are actually to make them ore addictive, and are not really to enhance flavor.
E-cigarettes on face value may look less harmful, but there people are developing new negative health conditions with long term use. That they had originally marketed to kids does not exactly speak well as to their ethics, as they seem to prioritize profits over product safety.
