I don't usually post here, but a news report I watched today was disturbing. The number of teens Vaping has doubled in the past year and there is nothing to support the notion that it's harmless. That's troublesome given all the effort that has been put into preventing our teens to smoke. Dissapointing

It's like the !950's where our parents were not told the real truth about cigarettes. Sadly, this generation will eventually find what vaping will do to them when it's too late.  I only blame myself for smoking.  My generation knew it was bad for them, unless they lived under a rock.

I saw that on Yahoo & what kills me so much is how can these VAPERS not think twice about inhaling those vapors-I guess people like me with breathing issues worry more about stuff like that, thank GOD after almost 2 yrs of freedom I rarely use my inhaler & I'm sure if I lived in a smoke free house I'd never would use one. To me this vaping thing is like it was 40 yrs ago when we all thought smoking was cool. Its going to be a sad day when the true facts come to light over the harm vaping does. :roll:  :roll: :roll:

This is complete BS. They found that the number of teens that had tried an e-cig had increased. They didn't ask aboutcontinued use, or daily use, they asked about ONE TIME use. If you ask a bunch of freshman if they've ever had a puff of a cigarette, and then ask them when they're seniors, I bet the number quadruples. 

 

"Children still are more likely to light up regular cigarettes, though teen smoking rates have dropped in the past decade. More teens now smoke marijuana than tobacco, surveys have found.

But health officials worry e-cigarettes could re-ignite teen cigarette use. They point to a finding in the study that 20 percent of middle school e-cigarette users had never tried conventional cigarettes. When the same question was asked of high school students, only 7 percent had never tried regular smokes.

That suggests many kids experiment with the electronic devices and move on to cigarettes by high school, said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden."

 

Ummmmm. What? What part of this at all suggests that kids start with e-cigs and move on to regular cigs? Where is there any evidence at all of that migration?????? How many of the supposed middle schoolers that haven't smoked a cigarette just start smoking e-cigs and are NOT marijuana users? That's the question that was never asked. Most people that don't smoke, chew, or otherwise use nicotine are not going to pick up an e-cig which has a higher up front cost than any of the other methods to start with. No other "study" and I use the term loosely with this one, has found any significant use of e-cigs as a "gateway to smoking".

That is horrible, the other day I was downtown where a lot of people gather, and was so sad to see many young people vaping.. Poor fools don't know where they are headed to.

Grrrrrrrr that's infuriating, Debby.  There's a vaping store at the mall and all the kids are walking around with these super pimped up contraptions on lanyards or chains around their necks and sucking on them all day.  They have about 1000 flavors and so many "cool" styles of devices.  Just wait till the research is out on these effin things... This cannot lead to anything good.

Well I think people might be jumping the gun on this. Sure they may not know what they are getting themselves in to. But on the other hand, we don't know either. Suffice to say, the studies just are not out yet one way or the other on this product. In 13 states it is legal to sell E-cigs to minors, and I know that they do sell e-cigs that have absolutely no nicotine whatsoever. So whatever study it is you guys read on Yahoo, I unfortunately missed that one, so I didn't get to read it. But I imagine it was written to rile people up. Until the studies come out, we just can't know for sure. But I agree that young people are smoking Marijuana much more than cigarettes. I find that to be sad. :/

If you think about it, high school is the age that most people start smoking. It's not surprising to see some teens are experimenting with e-cigs. Most vendors don't sell to minors, so either they're getting them through someone else buying them or this is happening in the states where there is no regulation. Nobody in the industry would object to a ban on sales to minors. On the other hand, if the minor is smoking, I'd rather see them doing this than smoking and it's up to his parents to monitor what he's doing.

That's my fear Sally.....the unknown. My generation was so pro smoking. It's cool....harmless. Now we know better.My whole family smokes. My kids generation is anti smoking...but now we have new generation and it's cool again,,,harmless...and then...massive torts later we find it's not true. I heard about the stores...it's unreal....a Vaping store...wtf

Grown folks can do what they want, but a minor is different. I don't want them do either. I know the harm a cig can cause, but I don't know the same fir ecigs . That's like saying drink this but I'm not going to tell you what's in it...because nobody knows. We are creating a bunch of nic addicts IMHO...and now these shops get rich off our kids additiction.
