    why do we never put blame on the kids parents when shit like this happens. if a kid has bruises the parents are responsible and gets arressted. if a kid fails the parents are responsible. if a kid steals parents had to be responsible. society sure has changed in blaming others but themselves.

    Is vaping really addictive? I never really cared to try it but if it's harmful (stuffed with toxins) and addictive it should be regulated at least as strictly as cigarettes, I mean not only is it easy to get vape pens, it's easier to sneak a pull than it is with cigarettes so yeah, kids could be vaping all day long in class every time the teacher turns their back. THAT is too much

  • tafoyaerik

    Yes, ban flavors so we can go back to smoking.

    I quit smoking nearly 8 years ago using e-cigarettes. I'd never heard of Juul or these other brands of what I consider mini e-cigarettes. I and millions of other ex-smokers started on very basic equipment that you filled with e-cig liquid you bought at vape shops, every now and then you'd have to buy new equipment or new batteries and eventually the small e-cig companies got the quality control right and the product improved. I still vape and enjoy the different flavours that are available both sweet ones and more herb type flavours. This was an adult pursuit, solidly aimed at adults who wanted to get off the cigarettes that we knew would eventually kill us; not because of the nicotine but because of the smoke. It's really sad that over the last 5 or so years companies like Juul have hijacked what was an excellent alternative to smoking for adults and marketed them for juveniles. What's worse is that as the refills for these types of mini-e-cigs are available from street vendors at cut price deals and also include cannabis derivatives and other chemicals not used in normal vaping fluids because they are known to be dangerous! WTF? These things were not intended for recreational drug use! They were provided to give an alternative method of quiting for smokers who had already tried all the other (mostly useless) methods, not to provide another source of addiction for juveniles in American college campuses. From what I've read, almost all the really tragic cases of injury from vaping were caused by juveniles (these are not kids) using street supplied refills. And it also seems that the number of cases outside the US you can count on your fingers. Because of this, I and millions of other vapors around the world are having to explain again that Vaping is a much safer alternative to smoking cigarettes in our efforts to encourage those who still smoke to at least give them a try to maybe lengthen their lives. My life was completely changed. I returned to cycling and now participate in many sporting events throughout the year, I am healthy and fit, much fitter than most of my 57 year old contemporaries who have never smoked but still lead sedentary lives. If, as is quite possible, the greedy actions of some American corporations in their inexorable pursuit of riches causes the banning of what has been a life saver or extender for millions of people the world over, then the world will be a poorer place. It will not stop those youngsters, it will just drive it into the black market which will be even worse.

      Yes, you can also buy fluids with diminishing amounts of nicotine which is how you are supposed to use them to stop smoking.

    "Vaping saved my life" lol what the fuck? Did cigarettes themselves put a gun to your head and tell you to smoke? Or maybe you fucking chose to start smoking and now want people to support you in reversing your own mistakes. If you really want to quit look up your states quit line or ask people around you to hold you accountable. Switching to a different addiction just because it isn't as destructive is NOT self improvement. Two vape cartridges cost almost as much as three packs of cigarettes, and you really think someone who doesn't have enough money for juul pods won't just buy a pack of red 72's to hold them over? Vaping would be a good concept. If cigarettes were a disease, that is.

    Sorry to say that I was one of the "adults" who was able to drop cigarettes for the lesser of 2 evils. It's a shame that these companies targeted teens, but they did in fact help some of us older people make a better choice.

    -- So teen vaping usage does indeed continue to go higher and higher. Yet teen cigarette usage continues to go lower and lower.
    Apparently kids WILL use one or the other whether you like it or not. So any prohibition on e-cigs is the same as saying you want them to smoke regular cigs instead.

    Meanwhile, cigarettes are killing people by the hundreds of thousands, but no one bats an eye. Feels more like a anti-vaping campaign pushed by big tobacco.

    I like how we blame the company for making fruity flavors, rather than blaming parents for having poor supervision and teaching their children a lack of self control. Since when is the user never at fault?

  • Radius XiX

    I quit smoking via e-cigarettes and I haven't smoked for more than a year now. If they want to continue selling anything vape related they should treat it like how marijuana was treated in its early stages of it being legalized, with a prescription from a doctor or some shit. Though vape is safer than cigarettes it should only be used by fully grown adults or smokers trying to end their smoking addiction.

    • Jeff Black
      Jeff Black 11 days ago

      Yeah, that makes sense. Let's keep the kids addicted to cigarettes until they are 18.

    The companies mentioned in this clip are owned primarily by the largest tobaco company in the world... Also, ecigs are just cigs gone high tech.... IT IS NOT THE SAME THING AS VAPING!!! Wife and I vape CBD to help with anxiety and panic attacks and it has helped our lives tremendously. Literally thousands of lives are saved every single day when adults switch from cigs of any kind, to vaping - which is actually a safe alternative for nicotine over the burning of tobacco products. As well as using menthol or cdb for things like pain or asthma, the use of vaping PG and VG based products has a safe track record of over a decade now. The cigarette industry (whether e-cig or burning tobacco) is a money grab. Vaping is the alternative that saves lives and tells the truth.

    Juul and blu are NOT part of the vape community they are owned by big tobacco and is a market scheme. The vape community looks down on this and refuses to be any part of it. That’s why our mom and pop shops can’t be bought out and it’s crashing tobacco sales. Please do not confuse big tobacco with our community that is helping millions of adult smokers quit and do not encourage children under the legal age to start.

    As a recently graduated student of hs, I assure you that it CAN be hard to see when students hide it in their fist and don’t exhale for a while. And I realized they were vaping after staring at them for a while and figuring out their tactics, but I imagine it’d be hard for a teacher because they don’t just have time to sit around and closely watch all of their students.

    I am 29 and I vape all the fruity flavors, besides that, at my school in bredasdorp, they took the main bathroom entrance doors off, all of the stall doors off so there was no privacy and this was in 2006 and nobody said a word about it...

    Is it legal for a minor to purchase vape pens, and nicotine related paraphernalia? It just seems like when the problem was smoking cigarettes, you had to be 18 or older. You could be a high school graduate and still not be able to buy. But I guess at the same time, a lot of seniors are 18 and can. You still technically can't smoke on campus though. So someone is buying these for the children, and someone is telling them that it's ok to vape in school. They can't do this in their car? They can't do this on "a walk?" Also, cigarettes are expensive! Aren't these as well? Seems like a waste of money. Like blowing you're entire weeks allowance on bubble gum. Who does this?

    There is zero justification for this anti-vaping thing... I still do not get how vaping is more dangerous than marijuana so that the law bans the former but allows the latter?? If you guys are so concerned about the teens, why can't you put an age limit just like alcohol??

    Meanwhile, minors have snuck alcohol and have died/killed due to drunk driving for many many years, and we've yet to see anyone try to ban alcohol, which, may I remind you, also comes in a variety of flavors.
    Nicotine clearly isn't the issue here. It's merely a scapegoat.

    Ok, that principal is a fucking moron that exemplifies how idiots seem to make out ok in life. But I'm more worried that I don't think that kid passed out from vaping tobacco. Maybe, but I think he might need help for other things. It could be tobacco though, I legit don't know.

    So we just gonna go all out vapes even though they've already been proven to be healthier than the previous (cigarettes)
    When are we gonna get to the fact that obesity, strokes, cholesterol, and heart attacks are at an all time high and almost all of it has been linked to having everything made with atleast 60 grams of extracted processed sugar nowadays

      Like nearly everything, American teens take shit to the extreme and dumb level. Vaping all sorts of illicit substances is definitely not healthier, but the intended substance has been shown to be safer (not safe) than tabacco.
