    Again, based on surveys that rely on the honesty of the participants.

    It is no problem for kids in high school to buy the products in states with a legal age of 18 to purchase which is why 20% of high school students use vaping products. Many seniors in high school are 18 and provide products for the siblings and friends. In many schools selling vaping products is considered a good source of income. At 21, it's much harder for high school and middle school kids to get the product because they have less friends and contacts over 21.

    Research shows that raising the legal sale age from 18 to 21, known as “Tobacco 21,” would greatly reduce youth tobacco use and prevent kids from starting to smoke, according to a 2015 Institute of Medicine report.
    It doesn't take much research to determine Tobacco 21 does work. High school and middle school students have far less friends and contacts over 21 than 18. There is no way to completely eliminate tobacco use by kids but Tobacco 21 certainly reduces the numbers.

    'Far from being a harmless rite of passage for teens, cigarette smoking can be highly addictive at a very early stage and lead to a lifetime of health problems and premature death,' said William V. Corr, Executive Vice President of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

    Then change the age of majority for everything to 21

    That means no voting or military service etc

    Nicotine is really no worse than caffeine

    It's the delivery system that causes the problems.

    You see none of these vaping related illnesses with a dry herb vaporizer as it's the chemicals in the liquid vapes that seems to be causing the problem.

    Then you should have to wait until 21 to vote and do other things.

    Stop being such a nanny state fucking prick and let people live their lives.

    I don't disagree. Hell, the military depends on the fact that young men are stupid and reckless enough to think charging into battle is a good plan.

    At some point, you have to ask yourself, "Is it really the job of society or government to prevent all bad decisions that people might make?"

    Would it surprise you at all to know that kids are not the only people in the world who like candy? This is based on a mountain of common fucking sense, so you should probably abandon this silly attempt to talk to your evolutionary superiors immediately.

    Every vape store I've ever been to refuses to sell to minors and cards people in the exact same way that other stores do for cigarettes or alcohol. Nevertheless, despite the fact that their customers are all legal adults, their most popular flavors among those adults are still candy flavors like Skittles. It's almost like adults and kids sometimes like the same shit, or something.

    I have no idea why it is that leftists eternally think that banning things stops people from getting them.
