    I'll have to find it, but I have read one study showing people who vape don't get as irritable if they go without, and it's easier to quit vaping than cigarettes. Which isn't too surprising given the numerous chemicals in cigarettes that aid in the addiction to those while vaping lacks the chemical cocktail and it's much easier to ween yourself off of it given you can control the nicotine content of the juice you vape.

    That could be. I am to lazy to search right now, but if I recall correctly Marlboro's had ammonia added to the product. It made for a quicker nicotine buzz.

    I would like to see some studies on vaping, but I think that it still may be too new to the market to have any reliable ones.

    EDIT: This did not take any time at all:

    Most of them I've seen come from the UK and Canada.

    How can we trust them? Neither one has a strong tobacco lobby.

    People will do stupid and self-destructive things. It's human nature. But I just don't think society should be encouraging it by allowing some to profit from it.

    I don't propose banning these things. I propose banning the commodification of them, for fun and profit.

    And then people go underground, bad ingredients get used. and "popcorn lung" becomes a real possible risk.

    And that's not what the research says, so you're just spewing nonsense.

    Any leader with a heart wouldn't have allowed any of it to begin with. Their hearts are for $$$$$.


    I just read an article about 8 teenagers ending up in the hospital from vaping. It said their lungs were being destroyed. They will find out its truth when its too late. The same will come from these energy drinks.

    And yet you still don't provide this evidence while evidence to counter your claim has been posted?
