    That's awful. I just read an article in People about a 17 year old boy who almost died from vaping. He'd been doing it for years. It closed his lungs up.

    They need to regulate that stuff since it has obvious health repercussions.
    They should make it illegal for people under 18 or so, and maybe try to come up with some sort of healthier substitute that people can use instead.

    Maybe people should just try smoking cigarettes or cigars in moderation without really inhaling instead of that vaping nonsense.
    Here's something else to think about - unfiltered cigarettes are all natural, so that's got to be better for you than sucking some chemical into your lungs by vaping.

    Pipes are another way to use Tobacco, that's not all chemed up. Don't have to inhale deeply. Making that nasty ass fluid candy flavored should be should not be allowed. Caters to young.

    For some people, it doesn't take a lot of tobacco smoke to damage the lungs or cause cancer.

    Those people should maybe avoid smoking and vaping.
    Otherwise, they're sort of asking for trouble unlike the rest of us who have no such predisposition.

    So this thread got me thinking.

    I got this marketing idea for the tobacco industry:

    An "all natural", "organic" cigarette.
    They can tout it as being a safer alternative to conventional cigarettes, and maybe now they can even suggest that it's safer than vaping.
    And hey, if you smoke and have kids or non-smokers around, the second hand smoke from organic cigarettes is bound to be way better for them too.

    They could probably even take a poll among doctors (preferably not oncologists or respiratory specialists) and get a consensus that the organic smokes are safer, then they could say something like, "4 out of 5 doctors agree..."

    But it turns out that the tobacco industry is way ahead of me with this smoke made from organic tobacco:

    By quite a few years, actually:

    Oh well, I guess I'll get back to work on my idea for meth that's good for your complexion and oral health.
