    'We Are Completely Overreacting to Vaping' - article

    Great article which puts forth the stance that the, 'moral panic against it [vaping] is an irrational response fueled by anti-smoker bias'. Enjoy!

    The 1st paragraph took me to a scene in 'PF - The Wall' movie. Am I the only one? Onya Luststarr! That was in interesting insight and the other links in that post were making the American cuzns scared too..........

    Fantastic take, isn't it? Yeah, our American cousins are overcome by the same, 'Won't somebody think of the children?!' panic as here, only worse. Meanwhile, the UK is doing the exact opposite... Old Blighty being progressive for once? How bizarre! If only we didn't live in a nanny state, or country, & could consent, as adults, to make decisions for ourselves about nicotine use.

    At least we still have a loophole for nic, in some states.

    It's a bit worrying though, with the crackdowns in SA & stuff, how strict they're beginning to get... Poor VapourEyes!
