Juul has been the cause of Teens becoming addicted to Vaping, not only that yet has caused an epidemic in Vaping Illnesses and now a death. Juul refuses to list what exactly is in their E-Juice extracts and oil, one can surmise is, “While the cause of the lung-related illnesses are being investigated, testing completed by the FDA indicates these recent events are linked to black market THC cartridges, and presumably, a thickening agent named Vitamin E Acetate (found in counterfeit vaping oil — NOT legitimate and regulated eLiquid products sold today).” – Quoted from Liquid Barn and FDA
According to TIME
On Sept. 9, the Food and Drug Administration sent Juul a warning letter accusing the company of violating federal regulations by promoting its e-cigarettes as a safer option than traditional cigarettes and threatening the company with fines and product seizures if it continued. Two days later, the Trump Administration said it planned to pull from the market flavored e-cigarettes such as Juul’s mango, creme and mint pods.
However, the Trump administration and Pelosi/Dems wants to put a total ban on E-flavor liquids due to the rising epidemic of illnesses and a death. Notice that we have never had this issue before JUUL promoted themselves as a safer method of vaping industry. You would think the Trump Administration would rather place JUUL out of business instead of banning everything all together, yet, that’s just not the case.
The Trump Administration has the information and data on JUUL, they know where the illegal vape juice product is being produced and marketed. They know the FDA has done a full investigation and has turned up with the damning results – that Vitamin E Acetate and THC are the culprits.
Bans do not work, it did not work with gambling, alcohol, and it didn’t work with marijuana. Bans didn’t work in the past, they aren’t working now. There are always loop holes and black markets.
Restrictions and Regulations however, do in fact work. Raising the age level on when someone could vape should be at 21, like with Cigarettes and Alcohol – ID required at time of purchase on Website buys and offline. (Liquid Barn, Vape Wild and Central Vapors already do these things). Maybe we should look towards the parents as well. Maybe Parents should pay more attention to their teens activities on the web, since, incidentally this is where it has all taken place.
Teens do not make good choices – THAT IS FACT. Another fact is parents seem to think they can “Trust” their teens because they “think” they have “raised” them with a decent head on their shoulders. I hate to break it to you even the good ones go dark – and party behind backs. Pay Attention.
Vaping is not Lethal when you get your products from a legitimate source. Vaping is not a problem when you study the ins and outs, the pros and cons. The instructions on how to use a vape pen or make E-juice.
I have been vaping for years, it has helped me quit smoking Cigarettes. Cigarettes which contain chemicals that cause cancer – where Vape has natural ingredients and unbleached Nicotine. (pure and untainted) Now I’m not saying Vape doesn’t have a draw back, it does, there are cases where the Mods have malfunctioned, or there have been bad nicotine deliveries. Things can happen either way, yet what these kids have been doing is all round idiotic and dangerous.
A majority of kids have mixed THC and the E Acetate with – Weed and high nicotine volume in a regular mod- which has caused the thickening of the Vape Cloud – Which causes Popcorn lung. The fact is regular mods were not designed for Weed, there is actually a special Pen for said Weed. If they had actually done research, and not gone to the black market dank carts or to JUUL, this would not have been an issue.
The point I’m trying to make – to summarize, stop allowing your kids to do as they wish. Start being the Helicopter as you were when they were little. Because I hate to say it – SHIT HAPPENS when unsupervised. And it’s a parents responsibility to ensure the SAFETY of their kids.
