    On the back of the Juul box in big letters: "This product contains Nicotine, Nicotine is an addictive substance". Sorry but these stupid kids already know they are breaking the law and if they don't know Ecigs don't contain nicotine that's their fault for not reading the back of the box (And I am pretty sure they have an above 3rd grade level reading skills so don't use that as an excuse)

    How about we take fentanyl off the streets and focus on the opioid epidemic that is killing how many as I type this??????? Come on man, do better society

    Reporter: What did you think was in your vape?
    Kid: Duh… Huh? Oh…What did you want me to say? (looks at mom) Oh, ya… I thought it was water vapor.
    KIDS ARE NOT STUPID. THEY KNOW. And to the parents… If it wasn't a vape, it would have been a cigarette.
    PS. CBS..show me the teen vaping epidemic study! You can't, because the FDA won't release the details.

    No one wants kids to vape. No one wants kids to become nic-addicted. This mother knows nothing about how vaping helped millions of adults world-wide get off cigarettes with flavored e liquids. Banning flavors is unrealistic and would force tons of people back to smoking. And it's not as much of an "epidemic" as the media portrays. Just because your little Johnny got his hands on a Juul is not a reason to entirely ban e liquids.

    E-cigs /vapes were supposed to be an alternative aid in quitting cigarettes. They monopolized on selling their product with looking cool, producing clouds of smoke, & most of all flavors galore. But instead created a trend that's addictive for teens. With e-juice at least you can have o to 16 mg of nicotine by choice. Teens will always look for the coolest thing on the market & follow trends, but with vaping/e-cigs..most teens were never smokers, or long term smokers looking for an alternative. It is not fair that the hard core smokers that like flavors, are paying the price because of "the trend" that advertisers created, & due to regulations that were not in place. Problem also is with the f d a that let products out on the market before long term studies are made. If they have little data, they still let it go through. Maybe up the age to 25…or eliminate the hundreds of kiddy flavors that are targets, as well as no nicotine for minors. This should not have gotten out of hand, but because testing/regulations take so long..they wait till something happens, or things get out of control before something is done. I'm a long time smoker & turned to vaping as an alternative & the flavors are good, but think they went overboard having hundreds of flavors to choose from, let alone teens choosing to vape/e-cig cause they think it's "cool". This is the problem being cool & trendy, something to do & make clouds of smoke they also think is cool. I don't need the clouds really, yet i'm glad to have been able to get off of cigarettes because all the chemicals like formaldehyde, arsenic to name a few, was making me sick everyday..i had flu like symptoms, vision problems, tiredness & out of breath. Since i went to vaping, not ecigs..all these symptoms disappeared, been on them for 3 yrs now. The only symptoms i get is itchy skin, but it depends on the brand i get, as a chemical or two added causes this for me. But truthfully..anything that you breath in besides fresh air, will have an effect on your lungs & your health. The fault lies with the f d a passing this product & the advertisers monopolizing on it..just seems anything goes here in the U.S., until there's a death & or it reaches kid's/teens. It's the same with products that claim jellyfish improves your memory..seriously, the fact they can advertise it without buyer beware in large print doesn't ring a bell, let alone in small print ..the fda states, "this product has not been evaluated". Their rush to push things out in the market.."getting a paycheck"..seems to be money before health. Our system is the problem, as well as advertisers being able to make claims, well..we the people are the guinea pigs to test these products for the long term. Buyer beware? well when it comes to health, there should be no small print or no print passed by the f d a. Not enough money, time or manpower to fund the f d a?..well instead of the wall, let's put our better spent money into the products for testing, before they make it to our shelves. Meanwhile vapes/ecigs was made as an alternative for real smokers, not as a trend to target youths.

    Just let those people get what they want whether it’s harmful or not. Nothing is more real then experiencing it first hand. You learn from ur own experience.
