Electronic Nicotine Saves Lives

| 13 Comments

Via Instapundit we find out that San Francisco is going to ban the sales of flavoured e-liquid.

Yes, the do-gooders are all about killing people. Is it cool to be a fog machine on the bus? No. In the restaurant? No. Should it be restricted to over 18? Yes. Is it a gateway to smoking? No study has ever shown that.

Why is it the same side of the political spectrum calls me a 'denier' for questioning the veracity of magic 8-ball computer models and yet gleefully ignores all of the real actual science when it comes to electronic nicotine?

From the link:

Three years, three months smoke free because of vaping.

Sadly ... Instapundit FAILS to understand that e-cigarettes are sold by BIG TOBACCO. The leftist "do-gooders" are at WAR with BIG TOBACCO ... they don't give a shit about smokers health. Similarly ... Michelle Obama's fascist "healthy lunch" programs weren't EVER going to turn little fatties into hunks ... it was just about her WAR against BIG COLA ... and BIG HOSTESS SNACKS ... BIG HAMBURGER ... and SUPERSIZED FRIES

All of these WARS against consumer products are really WARS against Capitalism and Freedom.

I guarantee flavoured shisha will always be available given it's origin.

Here in Saskatoon, the Health Nazis had to discard all their expensive "No Smoking" signage and replace it with "No Smoking Or Vaping". The dangers of second-hand smoke are greatly exaggerated to the point of being ridiculous and putting vaping in the same category as smoking tobacco simply demonstrates just how far the ignorant and uninformed nannies are prepared to go to prolong their crusade.

As a former smoker and never vaper I congratulate anyone who quits smoking through vaping. That being said as a former smoker I would far far sooner stand in the middle of a crowd of smokers than stand down wind of one vaper. There is something in the lingering cloud of vape that really doesn't agree with me.

As a non-smoker (well, one or two cigars per decade, maybe), and never vaper, I agree. There's always some hipster douche in the crowd at a non-smoking venue who makes a huge production out of exhaling clouds of used propylene glycol mist.

I encourage smoker friends to try vaping to get off the weed. Just don't be a douche.

That's the problem - you're smoke free, not paying all those taxes, and not even suffering for your treason.

These people are awful prigs and basically hate other human beings.

One full year of vaping as of this past June 13th. Not one single puff of combustible tobacco.

Yeah, vaping is horrible....

So people will go out of town to buy or buy online. More businesses shut down in San freak-show.

Yeah, in the age of an online shopping boom/transformation, not a problem for the average vapor, personally, I usually buy a month or two of nicotine liquor at a time.
BUT, I did see a very good documentary short recently on the internet. It was street interviews with very poor older men in Florida, generally a cheerful boozy bunch, functional and resigned to their life of abject poverty, I doubt they internet shop much or have a reliable delivery address. No mention of it in the film but I noticed many of them discretely holding a vape pen. The abuser/addict street culture crowd loves them their tobacco but smoking is too expensive, they're forced to switch to a healthier cheaper nicotine delivery system. In San Fran I guess they'll find legal sales outlets with flavourless nicotine liquor.
Once again lefty politics hurts the poor the most.

lance, interesting testimony , but, has your health benefited from this switch. If you want to fight these people, go over their heads by saying how quitting has helped you health-wise. It would 't sway the Nazis( who would much rather see you die an early death from smoking ), but it would convince reasonable people, aka voters, who have only the lies from the other side to make judgements about vaping' desirability. If you repeat a lie enough times....

And, at the same time you can comment on whether you or any doctor have noticed negative repercussions that began after you started vaping.

3 years+ now; quit a pack-a-day 20 year habit the very day I got my e-cigarette.

The difference is not subtle. No hacking, no wheezing, sense of smell and taste returned, I don't reek of cigarette smoke (it is amazing how badly it smells, I'm embarrassed I used to subject other people to it) and now I can actually use it indoors.

I honestly do not get people opposed to this. As a smoking cessation aid, it has no equal.

Someone is addicted to nicotine/cigarettes. That is mitigated by e-cigs. No, everybody must quit smoking, no help for you. Revolutions must go forward.

The same logic applies if you're a heroin addict? Actually it doesn't. You get methadone, which is not equated with heroin because people need help.

Only certain people, total losers, are entitled to help. The middle class in crisis can die of lung or throat cancer via the self-righteous hypocrites.

Welcome to the inverted nanny logic of the progressives, making us all better human beings on our dime, and their cushy phony baloney jobs.
