FDA to Impose Severe Restrictions on E-Cigarettes

FDA to Impose Severe Restrictions on E-Cigarettes:  Alarmed by a huge increase in vaping among young people, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is expected to announce a ban on the sale of most e-cigarettes in convenience stores and gas stations across the country.  

Now I’m no doctor or scientist, but it sounds a lot to me like a few industries may have forgotten to make their campaign contributions this past election.  But I understand the message the FDA is trying to convey to our youth - “you damn kids ought to stick to the opioids, just like your parents and leave the tobacco products alone.”

But trying to restrict e-cigarettes?  Egads - that’s not gonna be EZ!  That said, I guess you’ve gotta do something to prevent the spread of e-cancer.  Of course, to be completely fair here, at least these vapers aren’t flinging their butts onto the sidewalks.  That ought to count for something.

Yes, it ought to count for something

Of course I'm just being silly here.  I actually hold no strong opinions about vaping.

The potential for serious harm or long term respiratory damage should be ample grounds for the move to restrict sales to minors....

Right - while many who feel vaping helped them stop smoking are outraged - kids are basically just doing it to be part of the crowd.
