i was watching the news yesterday, Fox I believe, out of Chicago. They were hyping this vaping story coming up so that peaked my interest. It was a 17 year old and his mother talking about the teen’s vaping addiction. His mom talks about how she noticed changes in her son and he became withdrawn, and grades slipped. In a move of despair she sent him to rehab for 32 days to help him. He’s says there he came clean and admitted to vaping nicotine for the last two years that started when fellow high schoolers peer pressured him in not tryin it. After that he was hooked, it was all he could think about, everything around him fell by the wayside. Friends, family, academics, all became secondary to his terrible nicotine addiction. He ended the interview saying if he didn’t get sent to rehab he’d “likely be dead or in jail,” or sucking dick. I added that last one but I was flabbergasted that this nonsense was on the news. Are you fucking kidding me??!!!?? Dead or in jail????!!!!!! WTF is going on here, millions of teens just like him smoke and drink and even such a benign thing as vape without having such life threatening consequences. They looked so ridiculous reporting this nonsense. It reminds me of the classic film Half Baked where Dave Chappelle’s character goes to rehab and everyone is testifying their addictions like ***** and ******. They get to Dave and he’s says he’s addicted to ***. The crowd goes crazy saying you can’t get addicted to *** and the famous quote “I sucked dick for cr*ck, have you ever sucked dick for *** man!!”. He basically gets kicked out after that but this story is just like that. This kid either was doing other things and addicted but blaming vaping or the whole family is just drama queens. Only other possibility is they are hired actors paid by Big Pharma @ Big Tobacco to go on the news, but my tin foil hat is in the wash so I don’t want to think about these things without protection from the government reading my thoughts.
