yeah i'm probably a conspiracy nut a lil' bit but i think this is all a scam to crack down and regulate something that is mostly inert. the real crime here is that the gov't isnt getting their tax revenue from this because nothing involved is illicit.
i wouldn't put it past the gov't to plant these toxic products. its definitely like '6 people died from smoking cigarettes laced with rat poison they bought off the black market better ban all cigarettes'
lets face it, ever since blackbeard and probably before then, having burning shit hanging off your face and smoke flying around is super badass. i was smoking lucky strikes when i was 15 doing my best marlon brando impersonation, the vaping thing seems like a hell of a lot more benign than that.
