Big Brother didn't seem to mind much when the 15 year old version of me was walking his stupid ass into stores and buying cartons of Marlboro reds.

The GOP and trump get loadsa money from the tobacco companies, thats why.
Trufax: The people behind 'climate change is a lie' did the campaign for 'smoking doesn't cause cancer'.
The new FEC figures show that Democrats, who won control of the House during last year’s elections, received $74,000 from Juul’s PAC between January 1 and June 30 while Republicans received $22,500.
Juul also reported giving $2,500 to a left-leaning group called VoteVets. But Jon Soltz, chair of VoteVets, said the organization didn’t accept the money.

On Wednesday, President Trump held a policy meeting at the White House to discuss national vaping guidelines amidst hundreds of cases of vaping-related illnesses across the United States.
I'll be interested to see what ATS' consensus is on this decision.

For me, vaping is cheaper than smoking tobacco.
I have this feeling that I am going to be forced to go outside of buildings to vape, not vape at stadiums and PAY three times more than I pay now.

Tax it and then walk from it.
My only concern is that someday, somehow the US will end up with socialized health care and I don't particularly look forward to having to pay for the cancer treatments of a bunch of middle aged fools who got vape lung from their little douche whistles... but that logic can (and will) be applied to wean the country off all sorts of freedoms when we finally jump the shark and adopt Euro-style socialized healthcare, so I reckon the bridge can be crossed (or jumped from) then.
