Ah, looking for their cut eh?

It is certain the negative publicity will surely turn vaping into an epidemic...like the lung cancer pictures on tobacco products and "negative" advertising have already been shown to do.

Also much like the skulls in the ice cubes in the liquor ads in old magazines.

PS
Boy, the FDA sure screwed up in opiates and caused the current INSANE addiction rates though didn't they?

Only the approved opiates which they and the quacks get a cut for selling. Bring your own in and it's three hots and a cot for you.

Apparently vaping is less harmful to health than smoking. With that in mind, it might make sense to ban tobacco altogether.

Any vaping juice that contains even the smallest trace of nicotine should be strictly regulated. Any business that produces or sells any nicotine product for recreational consumption should not be allowed to advertise not only its product but even itself, even on its store-front window, except on an approved website on which to advertise addictive products and services.

We should also establish a self-exclusion list for vaping products similar to Singapore's for gambling. To enter a shop that sells nicotine products, you should need to scan your ID card and fingerprint. If you're on the self-exclusion list, you shouldn't even be allowed in. That would ensure that only those who want to buy a nicotine product could enter.

You should get a grip on reality.

No advertising and blacked out windows in existence have sent the the Naive Unifier off on another pointless rant.

Sobeys liquor flyers must burn his eyes?

I'm not sure you the strict regulations on nicotine content would go. It might be almost close to impossible with tons of sites young people easily access nowadays. Just a quick search on Google can exactly tell them where are how to buy (like this site with tips about buying older models for cheap and buying vaping gears from CHINA). What I hate most about that is the danger those poorly made cheap ones bring (ever heard of exploding e-cigs?). Yikes

What bothers me is these vaping companies are producing cotton-candy, rootbeer and vanilla flavouring...etc... to attract young kids to the product.

Apparently a lot of High Schoolers are experimenting with vaping now.

You're supposed to sip it with pure water, not inject it in your veins.

The same flavours as booze but I dont get a Sobeys or Superstore Vape flyer every week. Go figure.

Injecting reduces the volume and quality required.Hence a financial reward for being a drunk.

No system is perfect. The goal is to just make it as difficult as possible.

Prohibition has proved to be more of a curse than a blessing - look no further than what happened during it's time in the US. It doesn't and won't work. It would be a huge waste of time and money. I get it that you have a loathing of smoking. That is your right. You do not and will never have the right to deny others their rights.

Who said anything about prohibition. I was proposing strict regulation stopping short of prohibition. Just make it invisible at street level. Ensure that only those looking for it will find it.

Less expensive than hiring millions of thought police to see if anyone is not following the approved thought train. Or were you thinking of using a fink on a friend program like all good communist countries?

If the rule were that the vape shop can't be visible at street level, then enforcement would be low-cost. If the cop sees a business sign at street level, record it for proof and then apply a fine or maybe revoke its business license.

If the cop doesn't see it at street level, then he just goes on with his day handing out traffic tickets. Pretty simple, really.

Or we could just not have a law against it and the law would then be applied equally. Even easier.

Vaping can contain nicotine that is the same substance in cigarettes.


Scientists have discovered that cinnamon, vanilla, and cherry flavors react with propylene glycol, a main ingredient in many vape juices, to create entirely new chemicals, according to a study published today in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research.Oct 18, 2018


"There are more than 7,000 e-liquid flavors out there , and they’re pretty controversial ."
