    I think I see the problem. As an ex smoker, I have never seen that much smoke come from 1 puff of a cig. These idiots are sucking in 5 x times as much smoke as they would get from a Camel Straight. No wonder they are getting sick.

    Dumb. The bans being proposed in some states force ppl onto the black market so they can get contaminated products, which caused the illnesses in the first place, or ppl can switch to tobacco. If it was as easy as "just quit," neither the vaping or tobacco industry would exist. This is about states wanting the tax income from higher tobacco sales.

    They knew. I researched this 6 months ago. Metals, and chemicals. I found what was in them easily, I did a video to prove it. The government did nothing to control or monitor all but child friendly flavors, and selling in child friendly places. I did a video on it, so the info was there.

    the kids getting sick have been vaping black market THC products, not commercialized vape juices. The crux of the problem is tainted black market THC juices. The CDC ought to be testing the kids vaporizers for chemical analysis

    The idea that someone who doesn’t smoke And has never smoked giving an answer about this is just plain ridiculous why don’t you try asking a smoker who has stopped instead you wanna use that as an excuse to end the products but you’re not stopping smoking cigs and you’re not stopping children from even being involved in Any of it. Hey slow people on national TV and in the government it was THC cartridges have you banned liquor because of drunk drivers because a lot of those are teenagers as well. Just fyi

    I know many people who have used e-cigarettes or vaping to quit smoking. What happens if people quit smoking cigarettes? States lose sin tax revenues and the Tobacco industry loses profits . Nobody ever accused the Tobacco Industry of funding misinformation campaigns, or big Pharma and outside interests influencing FDA and state health agency policy. Our fourth pillar of democracy, an objective free press hasn't fallen into the hands of a few corporations who would try to shape public opinion with FUD-right?
    I'm a scientist Let's shape our public health policies based on hard data from clinical trials not poorly hypothesized meta-data studies. Let's allow adults to make their own informed decisions regarding what chemicals they choose to put in their bodies. I'm not proponent of nicotine, alcohol, or other mind altering substances. I am proponent of science. As such I'm speaking out against the unceasing barrage of FUD intended to influence our societies behaviors for the sake of profit.
