Re: Look out
"The issue is not that vaping is less lethal than smoking -- it is -- but that you don't want people going from non-smoker to vaper, as that's a retrograde step."
You missed the entire point... and you tried to cover it with a strawman. If teens start vaping instead of smoking ciggs, that's not retrograde. It isn't at all uncommon to create another, different, problem when you solve one. As I see it the problem is that teens lust after adulthood and adult behavior... and you're acting like a symptom is THE problem. Ultimately, If you can reduce harm, you should...
Plenty of other unhealthy FLAVORED things are sold to adults all the time... don't give me that designed for kids crap, adults buy toys for themselves now. Time to stop acting like people grow out of liking things that taste good and are colorful.
