    Meh, in my experience it was junkies who spread it and had it more. Can't say much for the early years because I was only like 7. Juul Vuse and the like are huge ass companies. They want to make money like a good drug peddler. They ain't going to kill their customers. I agree, way more testing needs to happen with this stuff delivery device included. I point to that small period where big news in vaping was exploding vapes. I use a vape to. Not allot. I pretty much gave it all up. But it's the weed industry that stands to lose here. Big weed is getting the protection that big tobacco used to enjoy.

    Is there really a lot of people engaged in weed-vaping?

    Why don't they just smoke grass, like we did back in the day? Why use a stupid looking vaping device?

    Vaping is just smoking vegetative material is a lower temperature. Vaping liquids is subject to the liquid's strength which may be unknown and could be dangerous. I would not vape anything that is in a pre-packaged liqud. I would vape a Marijuana bud in a glass-vape machine though.

    Where does one get those? I have to agree, even the most dank ass pot becomes smokeable with an old school vaperiser. I liked the ones that blow up the little bag.

    The legal ones aren't having the issue.

    They came up with a "better" cigarette that removed the issues of combustion products, and now they are bitching again because "the children"

    Are we going to go after beer and booze manufacturers next? What about coffee companies?

    What a skewed version of history. The temperance movement was a thing in the mid 1800's far before the "Hun" became enemy number one.

    What got them over the top was the women's vote combined with the general feeling of "we are awesome" following WWI.

    The Temperance movement was a "thing" in that it was a fringe view in the 1800's. The Prohibition Party's best performance was in 1892, where it got a whopping 2.24% of the vote.

    Only after the Prohibition movement associated drinking with the hated Germans in World War I were they able to convince stupid people it was a good idea.

    Speaking of stupid, you said that the "women's vote" got them over the top.

    Hey, check this out.

    18th Amendment was Prohibition, passed in 1919
    19th Amendment was Women's Suffrage, passed in 1920...

    Um, so women put Prohibition over the top before they could get the right to vote, then? How did that work?

    IF the booze companies were marketing to children to get them addicted, damn straight.

    Again, it isn't the product, it's the way they are marketed that's the problem. Candy flavored Vapes, who do you think that is marketed towards?

    Women were able to vote in local elections in many states before that, and even for federal elections in a few states.

    Women ran the temperance movement.
