you might see me with an illegal smile

If you can't tell they're high by the way they act, then shut the fark up and get back to work.

Might as well ban any and all food items as there's a slight possibility the item might be "special"

FTFA: But the key features of discreet design and lack of smell have drug experts concerned people will toke up anywhere they want.

Isn't discretion (or the lack thereof) essentially the reason that we don't permit public consumption of any intoxicant?  And if people around you are completely unaware and that discretion maintained, then why is it illegal?

They could be hooped up on odorless Xanax. Holy shiat!

I use a vaporizor. Anyone that says those things are completely scent free doesn't know what they are talking about.

I know someone's using one when I smell slightly burnt popcorn.

Then they're using a crappy burnt coil.

I'll be really sad when they ban these things. I like how they've completely stopped my idle snacking. Who needs nicotine when you have delicious, delicious peanut butter banana or apple pie filling your head?

I first learned what a vaporizer is from an engineer at Boeing. He's probably the smartest guy I've ever met, not just because he's an engineer, but because he started investing in Apple before the iPod even existed. I wish I'd been high enough in the 90s to start investing in Apple.

Gosh, folks could be hopped up on pot brownies right now, and all you'd know is that they had a really funny smile on their face coming back from lunch! Your boss could be coming back from a three martini lunch, and all you'd know is that he was smiling a lot and yelling a lot less. Your secretary might be popping mood stabilizers and muscle relaxants EVEN AS WE SPEAK AND THEY'D BE PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH!

OH THE HUMANITY!

As a rule of thumb, marijuana would be such a dandy replacement for the ingested pharmacy walking/driving all 'round you now.

This is practically an advertisement for vaporizers. It even ends with: "Vaporizers are legal to buy in Arizona, with no age restrictions. They generally retail for anywhere between $200 and $700." Shiat, might as well tell people where to buy them, too.

"Want to get high at work without other people suspecting anything? Come on down to Vic's Vaporizers at the corner of 3rd and Main. We've got all the latest styles at the lowest prices in all of Arizona!"

So they've solved the smell problem, which is the only thing I can't stand about pot junkies. The goddamn putrid stench. Vape on, you marijuana reefer felons.

Is this scary because they're not sharing?

The hell you say. *lights off Volcano*

But you can easily stand in a crowd of smokers and no one will notice. At a bar or whatnot. I wouldn't do it at work, but in could.

Yeah, now if only they could so something about the booze smell on all those terminal, raging alcoholics I see drinking in bars, pubs and patios.

Who the hell pays $200 minimum for a vaporizer? You can buy one online for like $40.

My grandmother, who never met a computer she could understand (and I don't think she ever owned a cell phone of any kind), bought Apple stock in the 80s.

// died in 2009
// that stock (and a few other long-held papers) paid for her retirement, medical bills (and she had a lot), funeral costs, and I think even a bunch left over for my mom
// compared with my grandfather, who died two days earlier and spent pretty much the entirety of his pensions (NEA, insurance sales, military) and savings on medical bills and funeral costs - my dad said he got something like $250 after probate
// don't get sick, kids - and if you do, don't take 18 months to recover and then live another decade (independent; even had a girlfriend at the end) only to spend another 4-5 months racking up heart/lung bills
// don't get me wrong, that extra 10 years was nothing short of excellent (for him and everyone else), but it was costly
// slashies come in 6's; didn't you know?

The sudden run on Chili Cheese Fritoes from the vending machine wasn't a dead givaway?

THIS IS HORRIFYING!

Never once have they offered to share. The bastards.
 
2014-02-26 04:22:25 PM  
I've had a few coworkers that I  wish got high at work.
 
2014-02-26 04:23:04 PM  
I work from home where I live alone, so I'm terrified!
 
2014-02-26 04:23:05 PM  
I wish my neighbour across the hall would start using a vaporizer. The hallway and stairwell reek like Otto's jacket now.

Yeah, well, I find the odor of petrochemicals used on convenience store posters nauseating.
 
2014-02-26 04:25:58 PM  
So now we will have a rash of people OD'ing at work!?!?!?!? Where is my fainting couch?
 
2014-02-26 04:26:06 PM  
We drink beers in our office, what's the difference?
 
2014-02-26 04:27:14 PM  
after this wave of fear mongering goes through I don't expect to see headlines like:

"Police swamped - wowsers turn in e-cigarette users as pot heads"

Ya, I'm sorry, but the point "some people you know might get high and you'd have no idea" is one that supports legalization.

It is annoying enough to see the anti-pot crowd whine all day about how every user is a stereotypical go-nowhere stoner, but now they point the existence of those who defy the stereotype as a cause to be concerned?

That guy is a successful human being by any measure, but he might be smoking pot and you didn't know about then when you judged him an acceptable human being!

No, that particular smell is from opium. True story...
 
2014-02-26 04:29:13 PM  
First I was all like, wow...now I can get high at work and no one will notice!

Then I remembered what I get like when I'm high.
 
2014-02-26 04:29:30 PM  
Your coworkers, or even your boss, might drink on the weekends and have a beer with their lunch. This and other things you may not be aware of zomg!
 
2014-02-26 04:30:49 PM  
it still smells like pot.
 
2014-02-26 04:33:32 PM  
Not only that, someone next to you at this very moment could have vodka in their water bottle or slurpee cup and you wouldn't even know!

*retires to the fainting couch*
 
2014-02-26 04:33:34 PM  
That fact that this is "new" to all of these people, law enforcement included, tells me that they aren't really paying attention to what they claim to really care about.
