    There are many viable, logical explanations to a high frequency of vaping among youths…
    e.g. failure of parents to provide guidance, teachers not willing or capable of warning of the dangers of using harmful chemicals and intoxicants, etc.

      Teachers absolutely warn their students. We had a letter come home from our school about a device being found on a bus along with the warnings about addiction, future possible health issues, etc. Why are you so anti-school? I don’t understand.

        “Vapin’ in the Boys’ Room!”

        (Doesn’t quite have the same edge as the original, does it?)

    Tell a teen they cant do something, they will do it.

    “JUUL” or “JUULing” are used by adults and school officials interchangeably. Most people who report out on the JUUL device, could be talking of any e-cigarette or vaping device. JUUL is a great device to get adult smokers off of combustible cigarettes.

      Philip Morris has a 35% stake in JUUL. They aren’t doing anyone any favors. They are just trying to switch your addiction to the nicotine of the future. Cigarettes are going away and will eventually be banned entirely…or legislated out of use. See proposals like the one in Hawaii – proposal to increase legal smoking age to 100. I know it sounds silly today, but big tobacco is dying. The cigarette companies are investing in the ground floor of its replacement. Think of cigarettes and how they were viewed in the 50s and you will understand the current state of JUUL and vaping.

    They’re setting Juul’s up to be sued by the government and everyone that ever vaped. No one made anyone vape and if you hold the belief that no one is accountable for anything they do this may seem alright to you.

      No one made anyone smoke cigarettes either, but the cigarette companies were sued. And people collected big time.

      When you have knowledge of your product being terrible for people, but then market it as safe, you become liable for what people do with your product.

        UGH – The attorneys collected big time from those tobacco lawsuits. The Plaintiffs, not so much.

          That may be true.

          I don’t have the settlement figures, but I am sure it was like any other lawsuit. My reply to Perplexed is still accurate though.

    want your kids not to vape? Take up vaping. Once they see their dad in his socks and sandals and sweet 50 pocket cargo shorts, they won’t wanna do it.
