    e-cigarettes helped me quit smoking; however i do believe that they can be harmful with prolonged use. you should only use these to quit smoking not as a replacement

    I disagree. You can do it anywhere so it's more addicting… less consequence is used as justification to use more often

    When people exhale the vapor, all the crud and germs in their lungs attaches to the vapor and spews out, filling the air that others will then breathe in. NASTY!!!!

    News flash… kids drink more than they vape… you going to ban alcohol…. again?
    Who stands to benefit? Big tobacco does. “IF” you really care about kids, which you don’t, then ban flavored alcohol. Minors illegally drink 10 to 1 than vape…. probably more than 10 to 1

    Vaping is an epidemic, schools are fully aware of the problems, but it is so bad they can only do so much.

    Of course those making money from vaping could care less and are very upset about a drop in their profits.

    What isn't explained by the commentator is that mint (menthol) has calming properties, making the initial introduction to e-cigarettes more comfortable, and hooking those curious to try it out. Menthol cigarettes are the gateway to nicotine addiction. E-Cigarettes taste gross and cause physical discomfort, irritating the mouth, throat and lungs, unless they are altered to them to make them more palatable. Mint soothes the stomach and lungs and counteracts the effects that these have on new users. That is in part why the emphasis on limiting access to menthol. As an aside, flavored e-cigarettes also overcome certain objectionable aspects of cigarettes and sustain the use, which is why they are problematic also. A lot fewer people would become addicted if they held off trying them until 21.

    Doing what you are not suppose to is the most attractive thing for kids, and it's not their fault necessarily either. Take a look at the parents today and you will quickly realize why kids are not the same as they were 10-20 years ago.

    Look, already. All this "Truth" crap, with those gruesome commercials, all your "sin" taxes, ordinances, regs and ricketa-racketa are not going to stop anyone or anybody from smoking. All the pills and gum don't help either. And they won't. Why? Simple. Willpower. Same as a drug addict. If you look in the mirror one day and say to the image in that mirror, "I have a problem, and I need help" man, that's the start. Willpower, then therapy. And you build your own wall against those things that ruin lives.

    So now it another epidemic? They just can't be happy can they? They don't want people smoking and now they're afte e-cigarettes. Hey teachers leave those kids alone. Children have always dmoked. It's a statement of their maturity. It's their way of saying look how grown up I am. Do you expct them to remain children untill they die of old age? Let them grow ip and learn to be reponsible so they can make fewer mistakes in life. You can't learn about life unless you experience it. That's how we learn. When I was in high school they eould patk wrecked cars in front of the shool to teachbus the impirtance of not driving drunk. Most learned dome did not. It tskes idiots screwing up to teach smart people what not to do. Let the idiot kill themselves do the rest of us csn learn. That's how lifeveorks. We don't live in a utopia and many people are fools. The fools show the wise the path of wisdom. Leave well enough alone. You can't build a perfect society. Not with imperfect people like humanity. So get off the soap boxes and mind your own business.

    The tobacco companies are now marketing e-cigs as a 'safer alternative'. They're simply trying to get as many kids addicted as possible and will worry about the billions in lawsuits later.

  • Reply reebs November 15, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    Three years ago, vaping helped my husband & I quit a 20+ year smoking habit. Having a large variety of flavored liquids was a huge part of our success. It was the same for many of our friends.

    I understand wanting to save kids from a nicotine addiction. However, I had my first cigarette at 14, started smoking socially at 16, and daily at 17. That was illegal. Didn’t stop me. Didn’t taste like cotton candy either.

    I’m all for age verification, but it seems that the only thing banning “attractive” flavors will achieve is less smokers successfully switching to vaping.

    governments should not be able to limit or control what people put into their bodies. Real law acts on unlawful acts, violations of rights, and is not used to control people who are not doing anything that violates someone else's rights.
