If you vape, you should stop yesterday:

May be bordering on epidemic status soon I think.

5 people "allegedly" die from vaping. How many millions have died from cigarette smoking? If anything, the FDA should ban cigarettes.

Nah, too much money in it. I for one fully support tobacco advertising in motorsports. I miss the awesome liveries and as someone who grew up watching motorsports from a young age, I was born in 1983, and could name every tobacco company in existence at one point, I never started smoking.

I suspect the cigarette companies are actually the ones pushing the government into investigating the vaping deaths. Vaping is costing them big money.

There is a common denominator with all 5 deaths and that is the use of black market / illicit THC containing products. CNN has reported that the state of New York (which seems to have done the most thorough investigation to date) has linked vitamin E acetate as being involved in all cases where illness/death related to vaping have been reported. Vitamin E acetate is present in very significant amounts in all cannabis-containing vape oils/liquids that they tested, though it is present in much smaller amounts in some THC-free liquids. The vitamin E acetate is used as a THC cutting agent and as a thickener. There are many products marketed as a thickener / THC diluent which contain 99% of vitamin E acetate. I suspect the folks marketing this stuff are going to have a very bad next few months!

I think about this another way. Big Tobacco and the states are losing too much money, and tax dollars when people buy vape liquid online.

Regulation puts the money back into their pockets.

There is some back room vape shops that are gross, but a lot of it is higher quality. Here in central Texas, there was a vape shop on every other corner. I think it will continue to be popular until they legalize THC.

Maybe people are vaping too much. One guy I've seen vaping never seems to stop. At least with smokers, they'd smoke one and be done and maybe go light up a few minutes late if they're heavy smokers. The vaping just keeps going and seems to last much longer than a single cigarette would.

I never felt the need to stick something in my mouth and puff on it. Not only the health issues, but the cost. Just seems stupid to me.

[censored] kids and their rock and roll.




Anything the counter culture likes the generation before them hates and thinks it is terrible. Same poo different day. How long is the list of epidemics that are going to distort the fabric of humanity we have had over the last few years.

Big tobacco wants their $$$.

Yes there is issues, but I'm sure tens of millions are being spend to lobby against this anyway.
