(Mainstream smoke is the smoke a smoker exhales after inhaling on the cigarette.) It is also present in secondhand smoke, so nonsmokers are also at risk of breathing in this poison when exposed to cigarette smoke.


RUBBISH! "mainstream smoke" is the smoke which is inhaled directly Or comes off the end of a burning cigarette

"second hand smoke" is the smoke that has been EXhaled by a smoker After a toke! Which has been 'filtered' by their lungs
They Are Not the same, similar yes, the same, No.

IN FACT when the term "second hand smoke" was first coined last , it applied to the Both of the above

How so?



Because dangerous additives are a product of a drug being unregulated. That's the same whether you're talking about bootleg THC carts or Heroin that's been spiked with fentanyl. Most of the dangers associated with drug use are because of the unregulated and illegal nature of it.

If cannabis was legal, there wouldn't be a market for bootleg dangerous vapes. No one would buy those if a person could walk into a dispensary and buy the real thing.

Drug prohibition does nothing but increase the dangers that made the drug illegal in the first place.

I’m pretty sure I got a fake one- it didn’t hit me like it “should” have. Made me feel slightly weird, and lacked some of the other things I normally experience (I get extremely cold from cannabis use) .

Threw it in the trash. Not a big loss, it was a gift,

But it’s not JUST a legality issue here. It’s cost too- these things go for $30 here, versus ones I know to be legit are $60.

Yeah, how about that. They KNEW it was bootleg THC vapes, but yet MI and now others states, immediately banned flavored nicotine vape fluid, and some states are banning the mods and everything.

I wonder why?

*cough*tobaccoindustry*cough*

You can tell because all the old people you know have been convinced that cigarettes are a safe alternative to vaping. But none of those people cared when Disney World was hitting you with flavored vapor, probably because it wasnt competing with the tobacco industry.

Yep. And another thing to look for is how the cannabinoid percentage is displayed on the packaging. There are variations in oil from batch to batch so the percentage will be on a sticker on the real ones. If it's printed on the box, it's fake.

Plus any that have cartoon characters and brightly colored packaging and are branded after candy are fake. In places where it's legal there are laws against packaging that appeals to children. So those aren't from any dispensary.

This oil based thc vaping seems silly to me, why not just get a dry vape and put pot in it.

The concentrates are just more hard hitting..and it's a fad/trend, with all the flavours, and maybe a bit more discrete not having to load the device up.

Doubtful. This stuff is coming from the same place as all the fentanyl.

mainstream smoke

Tobacco smoke that is exhaled by smokers. Mainstream smoke can be a form of secondhand smoke.

Sidestream smoke is smoke which goes into the air directly from a burning cigarette.

How did you manage to leave that controlling bitch, I love her but it's time to leave her she doesn't like me going out. I believe she has expanded my mind but know she is holding me back.
Been free from MJ for 3 days and I'm feeling really tired and hungry all the time, I know I will end up going back to her because I get bored to easy and she kills the boredom.

China produces a lot of the base cbd oil, not thinking they are producing the thc based stuff.

You can do it!

I did the same a few years ago, after 30 years of constant heavy partaking. I was having respiratory issues, and just stopped for about a month..didn't think I could. After the 1st 2 weeks it was easy, being sick at the time made it easier I'm sure.

I do see her still, but 1/20 of what I did, at this point, I can take it or leave it.

Moderation is good, and makes it more fun than just being a habit.

Bootleg Marijuana Vapes

Did anyone even pay attention to that part ?
No ?
Why not ?
Just like any other "drug" , bootleg versions don't work out too well .
Hell , I will not even use bootleg normal vapes.

Bold by me for subject matter.

Did you think cigarette companies and governments were going to give up all that revenue?


Bingo. I don't know why people don't think of this. It's clearly (the anti-vape campIgn/uproar) a scheme of the cigarette companies. This should be the first thing people think of.
