I understand that governments are starting to ban the sales of e-cigarettes and other vaping products. There have been deaths that have been connected to vaping and vaping products, depending on whose statistics you use, in the single or double digits.
That means that somewhere between 1 and 99 people have died directly related to vaping.
Now, I don't want to minimize those deaths, nor the dangers of vaping. Personally it seems like a collosally stupid pastime.... but hey, that's just me.
But it begs the question, at least for me, that since we can easily point to thousands, and thousands of deaths (maybe even millions) from smoking tobacco and related products... not "e" products... but actual cigarettes, etc... and they are still legal... I have to wonder what the heck is going on?
Now, maybe it's because the vaping industry is merely in its infancy and doesn't have the funds or the lobbying power of the tobacco industry. But if the logic being used is "danger" and "deaths".... things that make you go hmmmmm
