Guess those teens will just have to switch to good old fashioned tobacco... which is exactly what the tobacco companies that bribed this new rule into existence wanted.

Most vapers blow their sickly sweet strawberry vanilla chai whatever right in front of them while walking. Then I walk right into it.

Smokers are all assholes- vaping or throwing cigarette butts out their car window or on the ground. Fark your addiction you farking losers.

My mom is a smoker and ruined her house smoking like a farking chimney. It's like those memes of tobacco residue on the walls it's that bad.

RJ Reynolds is safe, of course. Next up, your weed is only legal if you buy from ConAgra. Or Monsanto.

This is due to Big Tobacco lobbing efforts. They were losing too much of the market share. The price that Big Tobacco will have to pay is lowering the nicotine % in cigs; even-though Juul offers 3% nicotine.

This is a pain-in-the-ass. Now I have to find another type of vape.

Just wait until Methanol cigs are banned....that's happening soon.

Funny, but Juul does have a legal leg to stand on here.

Why is Juul being singled out while other companies (like Puffbar, which is mentioned in the article) are still allowed to sell fruit flavored vapes?

Does the ruling mean all fruit flavored vapes are going to be banned?  Does that apply to water pipe tobacco too?  Pipe tobacco?  Non-fruit flavors like labeled "Nightcap" or "Bengal Spice"?

I was an ~2 pack a day smoker before switching to vaping (BLU then Juul). After about 2 weeks I started getting my sense of smell back...my apartment STUNK of stale cig smoke. I had to literally wash everything, all my clothes, curtains/drapes, shampoo the carpets, etc.

With products like Juul, that is not an issue anymore. My lung capacity has grown significantly as well.
 
2022-06-23 11:58:34 AM  
So we're going to apply the same standard to regular cigs too, right?

They kind of made their choices when they marketed to kids. Don't feel too bad, they made tons of cash and now get to live the good life off of other people's addictions. The system works!

Puffbar was legal because it used "synthetic nicotine", whatever the fark that is.  Congress did not authorize the FDA to regulate "synthetic nicotine" until a month ago or something.  I'm sure they will be banned shortly.

I've been using Velo nicotine pouches. It's a flavored powder with nicotine. I started on the 7mg and now I'm on the 4mg.
I'm done to about six a day now. Should be off them for good in a couple of weeks.

So the ban a brand but not the tech? So they just picked winners and losers

"Since last fall, the agency has given its OK to tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes from R.J. Reynolds, Logic and other companies."
 
2022-06-23 12:05:38 PM  
Yet we still can't just ban cigarettes, the source of one the biggest and most costly public health crises in the history of the country? Guess that check cleared.
 
2022-06-23 12:06:20 PM  
Flavored vapes came up on the ballot in Oregon again and I had to vote no because the same bill would have lowered the smoking age back down to 18 and I don't miss the gangs of smoking teens hanging out in front of stores.  I don't actually have a problem with flavored vapes but they combined the two.

They punished a company that marketed an addictive drug to children. Ask yourself why your steaming hot take was so far off the mark if you want to do better moving forward.

They did a creek clean up near me and they found so many damn ecigs there it was nasty, carry your shiat out with you. I can only imagine how many cigarette butts were in there they didn't get.

My grandparents are like your mom they smoked so damn much it was nasty, when they died and my parents got some of their antique furniture they had to do a lot of work to restore it. The pieces were covered in burns and black from all the smoke and when you touched them they felt so nasty.

Synthetic Nicotine is how they get around it.

I suspect Juul will go Synthetic to do the same.

No joke. When my mother inherited my grand parent's house she hired professional cleaners for the kitchen (where they smoked all day every day). We thought the wooden cabinets were a medium brown, but after cleaning they were a light blonde color. The rest was cigarette residue.

The cleaners had to use solvents and continually swap rags as they became a disgusting brown.

They banned clove cigarettes 10 years back for the same reasons, so ...yes.

I'm an ex-smoker, and I despise it, but even I think you're being just a bit smugly self-righteous. I'd suggest taking a looky loo in the mirror before running around calling others losers.

Oh and your momma's house is no more ruined than someone with a pet. Did you know all homes with pets smell like urine and poop? Or, as a friend who is a real estate regularly hears: "They had dogs or cats in the house. Stinks." She's not selling repossessions or anything, they are clean / well-maintained homes. However pretty much anyone can tell you when someone has a pet other than a fish.

Good is the enemy of perfect.  Sucks don't it?

And vaccines aren't 100% effective so vaccines are stupid.

And 100% of the electricity used to charge electric cars doesn't come from renewable sources so electric cars are stupid.
