They've got you right where they want you, now. My newsfeed has quite a few singing the chorus "vaping is bad." Click the links of the news reports, buried way down below the attention span of most is mention that it was THC products, vitamin E(????) or other oils, stuff bought off the street, that's causing all the issues. But, brace yourself, you must not impact the tobacco tax revenues nor the sales the big tobacco and pharmaceutical companies.JFC... imagine if they were guns.
Sitting in the Oval Office with Alex M. Azar II, the secretary of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Ned Sharpless, the acting Food and Drug Administration commissioner, President Trump acknowledged that there was a vaping problem, and said, “We’re going to have to do something about it.”
Mr. Azar said that the F.D.A. would outline a plan within the coming weeks for removing most flavored e-cigarettes from the market.
As vaping-related illnesses spread, President Trump and top health officials met at the White House to discuss ways to keep the products away from teenagers.www.nytimes.com
Yeah, and those flavors must go "for the children." Really odd they'll allow cigarettes (aka - known killers) to be sold in stores with a "don't sell to minors" law and trust those cashiers to do that, but won't trust them when it comes to this (competing) alternative.An unregulated industry... what were the odds of lasting this long.
Oh, well, guess that goes to show you this federal government is, indeed, owned.
But check out how "big tobacco" is involved in the vaping industry. All those "mainstream" e-cigarettes (vaping by another name), for example. It's a HUGE market these days and you can bet your ass the likes of Phillip Morris, BAT, etc. haven't been sitting idly by.The vaping industry is not one giant conglomerate with pockets deep enough to have its own PAC and an army of lobbyists and therefore are vulnerable to these types of retarded knee jerk reactions.
Yes, and that's code for "the federal government is, indeed, owned."The vaping industry is not one giant conglomerate with pockets deep enough to have its own PAC and an army of lobbyists and therefore are vulnerable to these types of retarded knee jerk reactions.

Regulation is done to protect market share.
