So, it appears that Nova Scotia is the first province of Canada...again, to take something away from it's people all in the name of...wait for
it...'The Children'. Nova Scotia has always been the spearhead province for taking pleasures and rights away from it's people, setting a standard for
the rest of Canada, or so they think, while people leave in droves. Far be it from any Government to "use" children as an excuse to ban something that
is new and inventive because they're not getting enough money from it.
Of course, we all opinions and even negative ones about Vaping from those who don't care for Vaping, or who simply don't Vape. But at the end of the
day, it's a personal choice, so long as others respect those around them and stay within the confines of the delegated areas for smoking.
I personally think that they're doing it to help out the big Tobacco companies, because the Government made a killing in profits from Cigarettes and
still do. Nova Scotia's taxes are a whopping 15% so a carton of Cigarettes are insanely expensive, and the Government of Canada wasn't making anywhere
near this in Vape Juice.
Let's not forget to mention all the cancer patients from smoking, that they can charge indefinitely for their treatments instead of finding a cure,
and healthcare in Canada is a big thing. It's cheaper than the states, but the quality of the overall healthcare system is pretty much a system of
"you get what you pay for"...it's not free despite what you've heard. There is a cost...just not nearly as much as the U.S., but you DO make up for it
in taxes, trust me.
You can't tell me that they don't have a cure for cancer yet, as they have collected billions and billions generationally from tax payers and
donations and have allegedly gotten nowhere. Even AIDS has a better cure potential than Cancer and we've all heard it before "why cure cancer, when
you can continue to charge patients exorbitant amounts of money, knowing they will do so at their own financial detriment, to save their own
lives...yet most will die anyway, leaving the debt to be paid by their families."
The Government of Canada wasn't making much in taxes from Vaping and that's one of the reasons they took it away from those who enjoyed it. Granted
the new law doesn't go active until April 01, 2019. That said, the Government of Nova Scotia claims that flavored Vape Juice is a "gateway" for
children to progress to smoking Cigarettes and to alleviate that concern they must ban flavored Vape Juice to keep children from getting it....but we
all know children will still get Vape Juice, Weed, Alcohol and Cigarettes the same as they always have. This ban will stop nothing.
Now I'm no genius, I thought there were already laws in place (just like with Cigarettes and Alcohol) and you had to be of legal age and have ID to
purchase them. So why not ban Cigarettes or the various flavored Alcohols which children get the exact same way as Vape Juice? Why only attack Vapers?
I mean, they tried this before with prohibition and it didn't work, yet I find it suspicious that they aren't attacking Cigarette companies with the
same vehement measure as they are with Vape Juice.
Remember, anything that gets banned is automatically fertile ground for Black Markets and just as easy to obtain, as well as being even more dangerous
than the regulated versions that get banned.
Back to the excuse of Vapes being a "gateway" to Cigarettes and drugs...Didn't Canada just legalize Marijuana? Has that not always been referred to as
the mother of 'gateway drugs' that could ultimately get children smoking Cigarettes and/or drinking alcohol as they frequent their parties?
I get it, some people will LOVE this new law because they may not be Smokers or Vapers (mostly it's those annoying, narcissistic jerks who stand on
their soap boxes nagging people and trying to convince others of how great they are), but they have their vices too and would be equally outraged were
their province to ban their vices, all in the name of children, in which we all know they don't give one damn about. The prove this every day.
So why ban the Vape Juice just because it has pretty flavor names or pictures, yet leave Alcohol, weed, porn and Cigarettes run the gambit? Adults buy
that crap for children too...even more so. So there must be another reason.
I personally think that since Big Tobacco has had a monopoly for many, many generations and in Canada the Cigarettes are insanely expensive because of
15% tax in Nova Scotia, Big Tobacco and Justin Trudeau made a deal. Ban flavored vapes, which will force everyone who quite smoking to go back to it,
as well as the children who are now hooked on nicotine from Vaping and will now have to find their fix in some other manner. This is the obvious
progressive transition from banning Vapes.
Whether Vapes are dangerous or not, the opinions are an illusory 'yay' or 'nay', as not enough studies have been accurately done and not enough time
has passed to see the long term effects of Vaping, but we ALL know the long term effects of Cigarettes (thousands of chemicals such as arsenic,
formaldehyde, tar, Benzene, Cadmium, Chromium, Hydrogen Cyanide, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Oxide and Ammonia...this is a short list, look the
chemicals up to see just how dangerous they truly are. Vape Juice has only has 3 ingredients...a thickening agent, flavoring and Nicotine, and
although Vaping may be dangerous as anything would going into your lungs (with the exception of oxygen), it is nowhere near as dangerous as alcohol or
cigarettes. Again, all of which children can still get, just as easily as Vape juice.
Let me tell you how this is going to play out. There will be a Black Market of stronger Vape Juices that many will probably have an even more
addictive drug added to them to keep the customers coming back of course and they will be more expensive because of the lack of supply and the ban,
many more citizens of Nova Scotia and Canada ultimately as a hole will be fined, and many more will be arrested after so many infractions of getting
caught with flavored E-Juice. This will be more ridiculous to people than those who get caught int he U.S. for small amounts of weed. Most people will
order from outside of the province or the country and this ban is only going to piss people off and make many more Canadian citizens criminals, where
otherwise they would just be (and have always been) law abiding citizens.
How does everyone feel about this...Canada or not? Do you think that Nova Scotia has set an unrealistic precedence for the entire country? Has their
current standing Government just committed political suicide? Do you think it was a good idea to ban Vape Juice, yet leave other well known toxins
available to kill children? Do you believe that they are working with Big Tobacco to recollect all of their losses of those who quit smoking and
turned to Vaping? I know I personally quit smoking in one day and transitioned to smoke flavored Vape Juice. Later, I started with some simple flavors
like Vanilla, but there is very little flavor to Vape Juice anyway. It's just a tinge of flavor and not like a candy bar or a sucker. Really, you can
barely taste the flavor, and you just smell it more.
What say you? Good idea? Bad Idea? Can anyone else come up with any other scenarios that this may benefit or be a negative for the country of
