And you know what...that is how it should be. Choices! People being allowed to live their life their own way!
that is what I am fighting for.
But as a former smoker, you know how the anti-smokers lied and lied and lied and lied. I am just warning you that the tactics they used against
smokers, they will also use against vapers.
Smoking is more expensive now but vaping is in the line of fire for increased taxation. Don't forget that when they lose a smoker, they lose taxes
and they have to get it from somewhere.
There excuse for increased taxation will be health impacts on the public - so they have to follow the same formula. Vaping industry has to be
demonized and the public has to be protected.
If you decide to quit vaping - no problem
The anti-obesity crowd is running in for their turn. Demonize the food industry. Protect public health by taxing salt and sugar. Tax base must be
So now you don't smoke, don't vape, don't enjoy your food as much - No problm
Next talk - the demon perfume industry that is making people sick.
There is no end here. The jack boot of public health will be on your neck forever.
I don't care if you smoke. I don't care if you don't. The issue is much much larger than that!

not illegal but is subject to "social disapproval". And because they have made to feel ashamed, they will not fight back.
