Vaping nicotine products gave me the alternative to quit smoking cigarettes for the last 3 years. My health has improved tremendously. The majority of instances these law makers are hearing about involve THC Black-market products. I challenge these people and the community behind it to take on flavored alcohol products too then. Hypocritical and smothering as they are, I don't suppose cotton candy vodka is a bad thing right? California voted the recreational use of marijuana and THC medicinal which kids have no business using in my opinion unless prescribed by a doctor. I suppose no one wants to read the content of the cases involving death, and like everything that is bad for you, it is presumed to be a gateway drug. I disagree. I am not a drug addict, never have been. Parents need to own this activity and simply taking it off the market is exactly the death call invitation to black market products.
