E-CIGARETTES AND VAPING
« on: September 18, 2019, 10:12:52 AM »
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?  DOES THE GOVERNMENT HAVE A RIGHT OR OBLIGATION TO BAN E-CIGARETTES?

If there is something that is deemed hazardous, I would prefer if it’s not allowed to be sold, bartered or procured I. America.

At a minimum, all of those products should be off limits to minors under 18.

I suspect the lung cancer rates will skyrocket in this generation with the number of kids who now vape. I passed a car this morning in front of the high school and the whole car cabin was filled with vape smoke.  Not sure how many were in there, but there was a lot of vaping going on.

The twins tell me that these kids all get in a car. Some will vape and others smoke blunts. That way kids get boosted from the 2nd hand smoke of both.

I BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT HAS AN OBLIGATION TO PROTECT YOUTH FROM DANGERS, BOTH PROVEN AND SUSPECTED.  HAVING SAID THAT, AFTER THE AGE OF 18 A YOUTH BECOMES A LEGAL ADULT AND IF THEY CHOOSE TO ENDANGER THEMSELVES WITH THE USE OF A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS PRODUCT, THAT IS THEIR RIGHT.  RECENTLY I WAS STANDING IN LINE AT AN OUTSIDE LUNCH COUNTER AND A YOUNG WOMAN IN FRONT OF ME WAS VAPING.  I MOVED ABUT THREE FEET BACK AND SHE LOOKED AT ME IN DISGUST.  I RESPONDED THAT SHE COULD SMOKE THAT s**t ALL SHE WANTED BUT I WASN'T STANDING CLOSE TO HER DUMB a** .  I QUIT SMOKING ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO.  IF 7 PEOPLE HAD DIED AFTER SMOKING TOBACCO AFTER THE FIRST FEW TIMES, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH EVIDENCE AND COMMON SENSE FOR ME TO HAVE QUIT IMMEDIATELY.  SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVE NOT BEEN BLESSED WITH COMMON SENSE.  THEY ARE IN THE HANDS OF GOD, ALONG WITH FOOLS AND BABIES.

People are going to smoke.  Do our best to keep it out of the hands of minors and let it be. 

Still less dangerous than alcohol.

I DO NOT DISAGREE.  HOWEVER, I AM NOT AWARE OF ANYONE WHO DIED AFTER CONSUMING THEIR FIRST FEW DRINKS OF LEGALLY PRODUCED ALCOHOL.  I'M JUST SAYING.

I WILL DEFER TO YOUR EXPERTISE, IN THIS AREA.  I AM CURIOUS?  HOW MANY DEATHS ARE YOU AWARE OF IN FIRST TIME DRINKERS?

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
