To the people saying nicotine is harmless, oh its very far from harmless. Its so lethally toxic, that Colonel Gadaffi is alleged to have bought
massive quantities of it, for use in assassinations (BBC Documentary). Its one of the worlds most human-toxic naturally occurring substances
As for the people saying its their personal freedom to smoke or vape, I agree, totally. Just don't forget, your personal freedoms end where mine
begin. I don't want your smoke, or your vape, in my face. Even if it is harmless, I still don't want it. Thats MY personal freedom. While you're
claiming your personal freedoms, you're also apparently ignoring or forgetting about other people's.
I've lost count of the times in the past before smoking was banned in public space, the guy on the bus sat next to me, fires up, and I have to spend
the rest of the journey on a crowded bus, "enjoying" his cigarette along with him, and if you asked them if they minded putting it out, you got a
torrent of abuse.
Now the same thing is happening with vapers. I don't care how harmless it is, and while I acknowledge your freedom to vape up, you don't appear to
acknowledge my freedoms to want not to vape up with you, and subject me to the odiferous horrible vapour you exhale.
So perhaps a ban is needed not on health grounds, but on common civility grounds, since it seems a lot of people lack the civility to understand that
some people don't want to share your vape.
