My question is, why are these instruments of death still available for purchase? I realize that the tobacco industry has managed to continue contributing to the deaths of millions of people over countless years and still profits from the addiction caused by nicotine from their manufacture and sale of cigarettes. Seems that after killing off so many people they came up with this latest idea to addict an entire new generation with a product that some are convinced, by advertising, that is somehow safer than smoking cigarettes and really “cool.”
Make the manufacture and sale of vaping devices illegal now.
