  1. Umm…the deaths are from tainted THC carts.

    A certain pesticide, when heated to combustion caused conversion into cyanide.

    THIS IS WHAT WAS KILLING PEOPLE

    ONCE AGAIN
    IT DOESN’T SUPPORT RHE AGENDA

  2. No ones ever died from working the french fry deep fryer. Its such an obvious ploy.. Not yet she says about health concerns..

  3. WHO CARES??? IDIOTS vape, suckers who bought into the Volcano vaping craze/trend. You cannot improve on a joint. FREE the WEED!

  4. Cigarettes were only around for 50 years before reports of illness began coming out? Only 50 years? Come on now. With the science on what the dangers of smoking readily available, adults in the US should be free to make their own decision on whether they choose to smoke. Cigarettes can be bought easily nationwide with very little restrictions other than age. We don't see anyone in a hurry to ban cigarettes. Why is that? The local state governments profit from their tax revenue.

    Now if smokers choose to switch to a less harmful alternative such as vaping, why implement such harsh restrictions on those products? Why not make them as readily available as traditional cigarettes?

  5. So 17 "DEATHS"…..Show us proof! Who, how old, Names, States, Obituaries and urine analysis of those deceased. These should be all public records, but nothing is found when GOOGLE'ING about them. SHOW US Proof and Facts!!

  6. Why did India ban e-cigarettes? Maybe because it is the 2nd world consumer of cigarettes, the 3rd world producer of tobacco, 45.7 million people depend on the tobacco companies for their livelihood, and the government owns a lot of shares in the tobacco industry.
    Most "poor" countries leave cigarettes readily available to their population, so the health argument is quite strange. Perhaps the answer lies in Big Tobacco putting pressure on those countries as well as Big Pharma. Really doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.
    As for countries who have regulated vaping, well the whole on the EU passed a thing called the TPD. If I were in the US government I'd look into that, in order to regulate vaping. But maybe it's better for nicotine addicted people to either:
    – go back to cigarettes
    – grow the black market even more
    – import everything from China –> less money in the pockets of US Americans

  7. OMG they know why, they just dont want to tell the truth. Its all about big tobacco. its right "you never here there is a problem before" said the guy in news. Why over 10 years nothing, and now everything start to happen? Its do to legalizing weed. Big tobacco been doing this for years now, the something "flavor ban, vape is not safe", its not about if its 100% safe, we all know that. Its about safer. The longer they can delay the truth, the longer they can give business back to big tobacco, in return the gov get more money.

  8. Portable R2d2 chemistry labs – they're no better than cig smokers – Nic addiction is no fun, im a smoker..and people had over 10 yrs to quit cigs, its an excuse to sell 30 mil botlles for 30 bucks that costs 50 cent to make = greed .. tobacco that had to increase prices cause of sickness and lawsuits – see ya in the cold at the curb with us smokers and be looked upon as drug addicts.

  9. NO ONE WOULD GO FROM VAPING TO CIGARETTES!! DUMB and LIES – YOUTHS THAT HAVE VAPED NICOTINE IN 30 DAYS MIGHT HAVE ONLY TRIED IT ONCE. THERE NOT VAPERS THERE JUST KIDS WHO JUST TRIED IT.

  10. There is no way these folks have ever smoked like me a 35 year smoker…converted to vaping 5 years ago and saved my life 100% <———. Flavors are the key to stopping cigarettes because cigarettes taste nasty. Ain't no way a vaping person adult or teenager gonna choose a cigarette over a strawberry unless its banned and I really think you know that already!

  11. If we ban vape flavors then people are going to smoke cigarettes and then because they're smoking cigarettes they are going to get a lung illness and may die I don't want this to continue at all in god's name. #savethevapes

  12. India banned vaping because they want to have their people to be healthier lol.. what a troll. What about regular cigarettes haha

  13. https://youtu.be/CXvOSNJo5gI

    Cookies heavy hitters tko and some live resin carts all from dispensaries nearly killed him
    All thc marijuana carts

  14. What advertising, juul, vuse, Blu and the others I don't know(I won't give blood money to them). ALL OWNED BY BIG TOBACCO!!!

  15. "Devastation of tobacco-caused death & disease" – Ban Vapes, Keep Cigarettes on sale. Stop using "Public health" to peddle your MSA with big tobacco.

  16. “Countries want to protect their future generations”… Big Tobacco is really putting in work on their competition.

  17. I can just see all the soccer mum's getting brain washed by this. never have I seen such lies and scaremongering as I have from your Media and government officials.
    India have banned vaping because 70% of the male population smoke and as the government owns 30% of its national Tabacco industry it's a revenue it can't afford to lose.
    England does have tight regulations in place along with most of Europe as well. and to date there have been no deaths through vaping.
    As for the stats on teen vaping in the States if you had strict regulations in place then maybe you wouldn't have such a big problem. And as for vaping leading to smoking Banning vaping products will lead more young into smoking.
    But then the US government needs it citizen's to smoke after jumping into bed with big tobacco and the MSA agreement. and as it looks like there's a recession on the way, and what's one commodity that does well in a recession? Yeap tobacco. So ban the cheaper and less harmful option, get 10 million vapers back on combustible Tabacco. And the government and big tobacco are going to do very well out of its citizens, Oh and a new generation of smokers because the government failed to regulate vaping, banned it and left teens with a nicotine addiction with no other alternative than smoke.👏
