    I'm too skeptical to believe it will. The sheep believe the media smear campaign.

    I was afraid of that. I’m hoping my gear lasts until sanity prevails! I’m not sure if I should buy HW now. This is insane.

    @DonBaldy thanks for posting the correct link for this. I obviously screwed it up in my posting.

    Yeah it's rare to see some facts and not
    biased BS these days.

    Been reading about your shoulder, sorry to hear that. Rotator cuff was it? Dont envy you, lot of rehab in the best scenario. I had both shoulders and both knees replaced over a 16 month period ending last year. But a rotator cuff is tough. Hope you get some relief soon.

    Damn I'll take my injury over all those replacements. Mine was rotator cuff and bicep tendon.

    Hardware. But I just bought another Aegis Solo to tide me over for now. Plus about ten more 60ml of juice. Sigh.

    Thanks, PV. I’m not really familiar with those mods! (Newbie. )
    I’ve got one RTA and hopefully I’ll learn how to build soon. NY bans go into effect on Oct.4, so it don’t leave me much time!
    I’ve bought nic, VG and flavors, though.

    indeed

    and it may not be "A" start. it may be "Thee" start.

    what i tell people = its fake news. and tell them this = if you are having pancakes, and you put 10w30 on them and eat them.
    then blame the pancakes for getting sick.

    Yes, I was able to watch that. Good report! Finally someone reporting something worth sharing that isn't damaging and full of b.s. "facts".

    THIS is what needs to happen. Sound data from manifestly credible sources just like this on major outlets where multitudes can see it.

    These lobotomized lemmings you see in these comment threads under pieces like at the Washington Post MIGHT even be given pause by productions like this.

    We can hope, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for more major news outlets to run pieces such as this. They don't fit the agenda.

    We need to see an avalanche of this kind of reporting from multiple credible professionals on the largest major news outlets. That might actually sway public opinion enough to make a difference. Public opinion is all that matters because the politicians don't care what the truth is unless it effects their political career. Public opinion does that.

    I'm not holding my breath either, but if there is any short term hope in this debacle, turning public opinion is how it will be done. This is our best shot yet.

    It's not impossible that there will be more.

    It opens fine in a browser.

    Really good to see this kind of reporting.

    I'm having surgery on Tuesday and my surgeon sent out a questionnaire about health issues and one of the questions was do you smoke.
    When I met with her I was asked again if I smoked.
    I said no, I quit on 10/26/2016 and started vaping.
    Then I braced myself for the usual comments.
    To my surprise, instead she said, "Well if that's what it takes to keep you from smoking, more power to you".

    Finally some coverage with both common sense, the science to back it up, and a well respected academic delivering the message. This needs to be spread far and wide.

    It's a shame that much of the media has taken the low hanging fruit of spreading panic, hysteria, and misinformation to the literal detriment of the planet just to boost their clicks and ratings. Fucking shameful shit. I have a 2 year old and am so absolutely thankful that my kid will never have to be exposed to a lifetime of smoke and that I'll probably get if but a few more years to spend with him and my wife thanks to the proliferation of ecigs.

    Vaping has always been about harm reduction. We were in it long before the tobacco companies ever decided to get involved. If anything the government should bar them from the vape market as a penalty for being death dealers. We can always find some new producers that never sell a smokable product to give our trillions to.

    The negative media influence is absolutely astounding, even on otherwise seemingly smart individuals. My kid gets diarrhea for a couple of days and my neighbor looks me dead in the eye and asks with the utmost concern "Do you think it's the vape?" I shit you not. Do you think it's the fucking vape. Christ man, give your head a shake. As you sit across the hall smoking your next blue king size and guzzling 50 cans of cheap beer over the course of the weekend. I love ya buddy, but listening to CBC all day isn't doing you and favors.

    Turn off the radio.

    Bigtime, and it's sickening. The media here are unquestionably anti vape of any kind and have no qualms about expressing their utmost concern for the children and everyone else, constantly. They of course completely ignore all science that doesn't support their viewpoint and are remarkably quick to quote any health professional, or anyone else really, that expresses concern of any kind.

    Worst of all are the commenters on the articles. The vape hatred with the public is incredibly strong. I swear we are surrounded at all times by terrible fucking people who are our supposed peers.

    I'd move, but it seems that everywhere is terrible on one level or another. At least the trees are legal here. We've got that going for us anyway.

    So that’s one positive thing in the midst of all this! I know how you feel about moving, every place is becoming fucked up in one way or another.
    I’m tired of hearing about saving kids. We, as adults, are the ones that are gonna pay in this situation!

    Respond to everything you see with the CBS news story above. That's what I've been doing.

    These sanctimonious pricks like to pretend that they're educated, so I happily counter their mindless hysteria and groupthink with science and fact. They ignore it all, of course, and continue their crusade, but perhaps someone out there will listen to reason.
