  • Big tobacco years ago: cigarettes are totally safe. Turns out they arent. Today, vaping is marketed with the same exact methods as cigarettes were, and the companies tell us it's "totally safe" And people believe them. 🤦🤦 Are we, as a specie, just incapable of learning??

  • 3:16 They got rid of all of it *because* the kids were already all vaping. So it's easy to pretend you're sorry and remove the flavors but really they have already accomplished their goal. Now enough people are vaping to advertise for them. Just like cigarettes: "Sure I vape, almost everyone here vapes, my entire class vapes. Why don't you?"

  • Addicted by flavors? Really? As if Juul's 59mg benzoic acid nicotine wasn't relevant? Anyone wanna guess what happens when you leave tobacco-flavored high-nicotine on the market? Throwing adults under the bus will do little to fix teen use. (And btw, there's a difference between Juul and the real vape industry.)

  • You’re using Blue for an example? Virtually no one uses Blue E Cigs. I know you’re a comedian. But let’s be honest here. You know nothing about anything. So stop reporting like you’re an authority on kids, vaping, or life.

  • 1. There were no doors on our bathroom stalls at my high school. Class of 94... 2. I and most of my friends started smoking around 7th or 8th grade, and most continued to smoke until ecigs (not Juul they are big tobacco, they dont count, fuck them) 3. The royal college of physicians has proven vaping to be at least 95-97% safer than smoking, which is harm reduction. So much so, that they are now putting vape stores in hospitals and encouraging smokers to switch to ecigs. 4. I smoked for 28 years, 2 packs a day, I switched 3 years ago completely to vape, I have been examined multiple times, including trays, and CT scans, my O2 level is 98% which is great for a man my age, and I show no signs of any health issues, in fact, it actually reversed them, my before and after, is proof. The fact that I haven't touched a cigarette in over 3 years, is in fact proof it can save lives, it probably saved mine. 5. I like flavors occasionally, strawberry, or caramel and vanilla coffee, but I usually stick to peppermint and menthol because I was a menthol smoker. 6. I successfully have weened myself down to 3mg and my daily intake of nicotine is less than 5 cigarettes a day. Remember I smoked 40 cigarettes a day for almost 30 years.. 7. My kids started smoking same age I did, they hid it from me, until they were of legal age. They continued to smoke. This is after the warnings, education, bans, no advertising, and they still smoked. I got them to switch to vaping, and they have also weened down to 3mg, and I feel that is a safer alternative to the harm they were doing to themselves. 8. My wife quit too, with vaping, same story as mine. 9. It is illegal for them to buy it already, banning flavors, will do nothing but create a black market, and cause more harm. 10. I can buy McDonaalds 3 meals a day, and it will kill me, I can also buy marshmallow vodka, and hard apple cider with a cute little woodchuck on the label... Moral of my rant. Stop trying to control people! If you believe in condoms to prevent harm, clean needle exchanges, even clean injection sites they can shoot up in, seatbelts, helmets, steel toe work boots, you believe in harm reduction. You should not condone the use of it under the legal age, but yeah try to keep a 16 year old from fuckin. Ain't going to happen. So maybe try harm reduction, and enforcing the law so they cant buy it.

  • The public health sector is corrupt and endangering the lives of 30 million Americans with a campain of lies. The real truth usproject.info/it/video/uHrYbICHy5V9lZI As for the illness. Samples of lung fluid from patients with the 'mysterious illness' all contained Tocopheryl-acetate(vitamin E acetate). So 100% used THC or CBD vape products containing vitamin E acetate. With the way kids pass around their vapes it is possible that the kids didn't know they were vaping CBD. Tocopheryl-acetate destabilizes the fragile, lipo-hydrophilic balance of this lung surfactant, causing occlusion, affecting the permeation of gases and substances in the bronchial structures and alveoli. Tocopheryl-acetate’s chemical acetate ring enables it to cling even more strongly to lung surfactant than the non-acetate form. It’s like Saran-wrapping the inside of your lungs and lung cells die. That damage can initiate a runaway immune system reaction resembling hypersensitivity pneumonitis, or immune checkpoint-inhibitor pneumonitis. This may especially occur with high doses of tocopheryl-acetate, such as in formulations found in an illegal THC vape cart cut heavily with the oil(caster or mineral oil). It may occur even at relatively low vaping temperatures. Also most samples of THC vape tested extremely high(50x legal limit for ingestion) for Eagle 20(myclobutanil), a fungicide. When burned or vaped however, it releases hydrogen cyanide and hydrogen chloride. Hydrogen cyanide is what Zyklon B released in NAZI gas chambers. It blocks aerobic respiration in cell mitochondria. That is your cells can't use oxygen to make energy. Ever run full speed until your muscles burn? That is lactic acid produced because there is not enough O2 for aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration produces lactic acid. This acidification or acidosis can also reduce the diffusion of acids. Symptoms like headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, cough, vomiting and diarrhea are found in cyanide poisonings. Phosgene a WWI chemical weapon releases hydrogen chloride. hydrogen chloride reacts with water in the lungs to form hydrochloric acid, dissolving lung tissue. More damage is done if the body has become acidic. Although Tocopheryl-acetate is the primary cause, Eagle 20(myclobutanil) is probably also a factor.

  • You know there is a serious problem when we're gonna blame vape instead of blaming the parents and our government specially the government that does not want to enforce the laws that we have and the government that pays for safe houses for people to shoot up heroin but yet vape is a problem wow there are some really stupid people out there.

  • One of those fucking vapes was for cannibas dumbass

  • Wow and people listen to this idiot moron and uneducated person. How about the government do their dam job and start fining people that sell to under age kids And support the laws that are in effect instead of making up new laws that don't do any good anyways because they don't enforce the ones that have. Yeah you make fun of vapors when it comes to election time and the vapors are the ones that will be voting and putting in office that support the vapors and then we'll see who's laughing when the vapors have control of the voting block.

  • As a person who vapes and who has vaped for awhile now, vape companies are not targeting kids. The reason why I say that is because if you go into a vape shop and say that you want to get a juice or a mod they will I.D you no matter how old you look and I’ve seen this before, I’ve also seen employees say that they can’t sell them anything because their kids are in the car parked in the parking lot. The reason why Juul is so popular among teens is because you don’t have to go to a vape shop to get them, you can get them at gas stations with employees that won’t I.D them which is illegal and the reason why people are dying, is from vaping illegally made black market THC pods and illegally made juices that has vitamin E acetate as the base of it which is an oil, in normal legal vape juice there is no oil. And to top it off, kids are vaping really high nicotine strength when they never smoked a day in their lives and their bodies aren’t used to it so their bodies breakdown. If this vaping stuff that you hear on the news saying that vaping is killing people left and right, then millions of people including me should be six feet under because vaping has been around just now over ten years. Look at what the kids are doing with vaping, like what their vaping on and what juice their vaping, don’t blame vaping as a whole, blame the kids that are vaping because it was their own decision to start when they never smoked a day in their lives.

  • I started smoking cigarettes at the age of 13. Off and on I quit but I smoked a total of 9 years combined. Only quit because of vaping. That's the only thing. Stop criminalizing something that helps people quit.

  • Vaping wasn't a crisis Until, Literally, THE TOBACCO Companies Bought Juul/Blu in 2013/2014, and others, and used their OWN Tactics and marketing. But Hey, who cares that million of adults enjoy vaping, and I NEVER USE a nasty ass JUUL / BLU. I'm vaping Killer Kustard Honeydew Cream that I bought from a reputable Eliquid company, and I haven't smoked a cigarette in over a year. OMG!!! look a KID JUST DIED! AHHHHHHHH, OMG OMG OMG! oh sorry it was from Opiods, Schools shootings, and Lack of Vaccines.

  • If you didn't quit smoking cigarettes with vaping flavors then you won't understand how important flavors are to the process. Tobacco doesn't taste good and neither does mint or menthol. We have freedom of choice in America and our government uses children as shields to protect their investments, they don't care about kids or teens vaping they care about the money they're losing from the MSA payout.

  • I love some of the flavors. And fucking bitch yeah i love gummy bears. But captain crunch is my favorite. But yes kids shouldn't have it. But e cigs also help the environment. I quit smoking cause i live in California and a cigarette not fully put out is a fire bomb. I always try to put them out but on windy days or you are in a rush for the bus it can be something that gets away from you. And also the butts can end up in the stomach of animals and they can die from getting full of them. Just needs more regulations and steeper stipulations on those found breaking the rules selling to them.

  • I don't know about you guys, but most the teens around my area get their parents to buy them their stuff. Even after I told them that it would be dangerous to start them on that (bare in mind that the ones they got them had 0% nicotine). And the parents told me that it was basic hogwash. Now I have been smoking Juul for just over a year now and it helped me quit my smoking habit and I am slowly weening if the vaping too. All in all, it is not one person/companies fault for this rampage. It is the retailers and the parents as well. Bygones be bygones, kids will always find a way to do the things they are not supposed to do.

  • Kids vaping in school is not a crisis. Kids being shot and killed by other kids is a crisis. Local, state and federal governments can't protect children or adults from being victims of mass shootings so they think their actually doing something by banning vape products. There's no vaping epidemic in this country, there's a violence epidemic and children as young as 7 years old are the victims.

  • This is pretty low and ignorant Trevor 🤦‍♂️ total misrepresentation of the industry without actually doing research (other than biased news headlines) JUUL does NOT represent what the vaping industry is. The minor issue is unfortunate, but vaping has always been illegal for minors to purchase even before it was written into law. The real problem should be the places who are selling vaping devices to underage kids. This is ridiculous. This is why we can't have anything nice. Vaping is only for smokers who want an easier enjoyable way to quit

And I don't think it's the flavors that attract kids, Shisha comes in all types of flavors and has been around since forever but kids aren't addicted to it. The issue is that it was advertised as healthier because it's electronic ... That's was deceiving marketing.
