People like YOU and Donald Trump hate facts - Sort of like roaches who hate the light.

. E-cigarettes are at least 95% safer than cigarettes according to the Royal College of Physicians. In Feb. 2019 the New England Journal of Medicine published a study which concluded vapor products are twice as effective helping smokers quit than traditional cessation methods like nicotine gum or patch. Georgetown University public health experts conclude that switching to e-cigarettes would save between 1.6 and 6.6 million lives over the next 10 years. The American Cancer Society’s Public Health Statement on Eliminating Combustible Tobacco Use in the United States stated, “switching to the exclusive use of e-cigarettes is preferable to continuing to smoke combustible products.”

What gets me about this is that the recent deaths associated with vaping have nothing to do with e-cigarettes and nicotine vapes. It's black market THC vapes that are causing it.

And why are dangerous black market THC vapes causing people to be hospitalized and die?

Because they're illegal.

And there is no regulation of ingredients. So what does Trump do? Make nicotine vapes illegal, which will lead to the same issues with nicotine vapes.

It's complete oblivious stupidity. With a dash of tobacco lobbyist money.

It's not just Trump. I heard about the problems with vaping long before I found out that they are black market THC juice problems. Heck, that anti-truth group that calls themselves "truth.com" has been running ads for a year or more saying how "dangerous" vaping is! Do they mention THC or black market? Hell no. They let people assume they are talking about nicotine.

I'd bet that 90+% of the entire population still thinks this is all about the nicotine. Thank you MSM! You bunch of lazy, propaganda swilling, useless pieces of *censored*...

And the real danger, the sorry and the pity of all this is that the very kids they are trying to protect are now going to,

and in some ways qute rightly, not trust these so called adult protectors of their lives and health.

Hell, if they lie about vaping products by making them appear more dangeous than they are, makiing them think they are
more dangerous than lit tobacco and especially cigarettes - Then expect these kids to not believe anything 'they' say
- They will find a way to buy real old fashiond lit tobacco, cancer causing cigarettes instead - And of course I'm sure
they'll find a way to find all the marijuana they want.

Dam these hippocrites, they lost the war against alcohol and marijuana and caused more crime and corrupton than
ever as they did it.

Why do they have to endanger our, and our children's health aa they corrupt the vape indusrty to suit
their agenda to get people smoking lit tobacco again.

They say 'the road to Hell is paved with good intentions' - But I don't believe they have good intentions at all, I think
it is pure corruption at work.

And what happened to you Donald Trump - We thought you were our hero when we voted for you.
Follow through with your current proposal to destroy the vape industry and I tell you this: NEVER AGAIN

True - But remember we trusted Trump to protect us from the ''Liberal Nanny State' that wants to regulate everything
from the size of your soft drink to the end of The Second Amendment'

Remeber Chuck Harder the talk show host who claimed to be politically neutral? - He was a big radio super star back
in the '90x - Even back then he warned they will come and take your guns - Some Democrats are threatening this right now.
- I'm sure your aware of it.

Sure it starts with the AK-47s - But we know it will never end there - Like the Monarchy of England, the people have
no right to own guns according to these Sccialist/Communists.

Now put this in your pipe and smoke it - IT WILL NOT STOP WITH FLAVORED VAPES!, The Socialist nation of India
just outlawed all e-cigarettes.

And what is our anti-socialist hero Donald Trump doing about the obvious fraud making vaping seem like a junkie
shooting up - Is he really going along withe the Socialist Agenda where the safety of the masses must eliminate
the rights of the individual ???

That's not the Donald Trump I voted for - My Donald Trump might ask us to be more careful about some things'
- But he would not dam a whole industry based upon fanatics who tell us that 400 people getting sick and seven
dying out of how namy, maybe 4,000,000 - Sounds like a product that is safer than water


And yes tap water is very dangerous - I never drink it - and I bet your vape is cleaner than the tap water coming out
of your fawcett.

That post was not intended to excuse this potential move by Trump. I am as upset over his statement as you are (OK, maybe not quite as upset, but upset nonetheless). I am well aware this won't stop with flavorings... these fools behind the anti-nicotine drive won't stop until every tobacco plant and every strand of tobacco DNA is so extinct there is no chance anyone will ever find fossils of them!

That's what I was trying to point out: the absolutely hysterical reaction to the problems people have created for themselves is simply another push of the same old tired agenda. They just got to Trump too. I hope he wakes up, because you are right: he was/is our champion, fighting for freedom from the tyranny so many want to impose.

Sorry I didn't make that clearer.

And as we now await the dawn of a 'New Underworld' brought about by politicians - The same politicians that brought about alcohol prohibition and the rise of big time organized crime in America and extended this into modern times with the marijuana wars that brought you El Chapo and the new rise of another underwould.........We can now look forward to an underground market for e-cigarettes, a market that only the dumbest, stupidest, politicians money can buy, and
''Madie in the U.S.A.'...........

Consider this fellow Americans who still have functioning brains not clouded by the copious amount of smoked BS now being broadcast over the cloudy and very smoky airwaves of our excuse for news and a free press.

CONSIDER THE TRUTH:


PUBLIC HEALTH BENEFITS OF VAPING OUTWEIGH RISKS

The benefits of vaping as a way to quit smoking
far outweigh the health risks youths face
if they go from electronic to traditional cigarettes, a new study suggests.


"The base simulation takes into account the possible roles of e-cigarettes in both smoking cessation and initiation. It reflects more than 3.5 million life-years gained by using e-cigarettes to quit conventional cigarettes and 260,000 life-years lost due to additional vaping-induced smoking initiation by young people.

“I don’t think this paper resolves the argument once and for all. But we have to go with the best evidence available,” says Kenneth Warner, former dean of the University of Michigan School of Public Health and professor emeritus of public health and professor emeritus of health management and policy. “I believe the case is strong; the benefits outweigh the risks.”


"“Meanwhile, we have a crisis on our hands. Five hundred thousand people are dying each year as a result of smoking. One out of six Americans remain as smokers.”

David Mendez, associate professor of health management and policy, is one of the coauthors of the recent National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine comprehensive review of more than 800 studies on e-cigarettes.

Overall conclusions from the report are that e-cigarettes are not without health risks but are less harmful than conventional cigarettes, and that when used in the place of traditional cigarettes can reduce exposure to many toxicants and carcinogens and reduce adverse health outcomes. However, long-term effects of the products on health remain unclear".


"Though the results of the study show likely net benefits from e-cigarettes, “those benefits represent a small fraction of the enormous harm caused by combustible tobacco,” Mendez says.

The researchers report their findings in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research."

If action is not taken the 12 vaping death could grow to huge numbers. Oh, I am an ex smoker. Only prayer worked to completely stop. My next highs came from endorphins gotten by running 54 marathons.

You mean like the thousands of deaths due to car accidents? Why is that OK? How about the thousands of deaths due to the wrong drugs being perscibed? Those are OK but 12 Vape deaths OMG crisis

This is why I did not have children, I knew folks like yourself.

Do carry on your outrage

(I quit smoking after 47 years with patches, no Vape, last Oct.)

Amusing thing to me is that vape defenders are behaving just like smokers did before the cascade of medical studies proving its danger beyond a doubt.


I make no bones about it, I hate vaping with a passion... I have had bronchitis and Pneumonia multiple times in the past dont tell me inhaling a mist with a variety of chemicals in it is healthy, and dang sure dont do it around my kid and go... "its not bad for you."

Don't you dare blame anyone for car exhaust.

Nope I think both parties suck, there is no proof that vaping is not bad for you and personally I fully expect it to come out that it isn't healthy for you.


At least most smokers I encountered had the decency to ask if I minded, vapers just walk into poorly ventilated areas and expect me not to care that they are blowing that crap at me.

You should watch out for boiling teapots as well

They spread bacteria

You know, in the steam?

How do you feel about car exhaust

Bet your kid rides to school

That is bad you know worse then Vaping even

But in your mind that is OK

Hmmmm

I have not owned a car for a decade

I guess you really don't care about the planet your kid grows up in

I think vaping is the least of our worries. Like you said in the other thread, we're destined for a civil war.
A Biblical styled cleansing...The American Armageddon! Bring it...I don't care anymore. Glad I don't have kids to be sacrificed in the blood ritual.

No one escapes except those of us bless to have options like the wealthy elite. Making friends with some GOP bigdogs should serve me well when it starts.

Nice straw man keep inhaling that crap I am sure it will all work out and be perfectly healthy for you and the people around you, just dont be surprised when it turns out that inhaling smaller particles than smoking a cigarette turns out to develop more severe problems.

ETA: once again so much like the argument smokers made before the bans.

Yep.

It's akin to a full ban on all legit alcohol because some bootlegger s# was toxic.

Stupid is as stupid does. A ban won't solve squat. The underground market, however, is going to explode like no other.

Nobody's saying it's cure-all healthy. It's just not AS bad for us as combusting treated tobacco is. If we can have a pick of poisons to entertain & relax ourselves with, it is not wiser to choose the less damaging ones?

whats driven me to detest it is the attitude if you ask someone to move along or at least dont blow it in my direction, lots of idiots spouting that its not bad for you, and since I have a 1 year old I am more concerned about what he is exposed to while still at such a young developmental stage.
