PSA: flavored vape cartridges will be pulled from shelves February 1st

-12 Deal Score

If you use e cigarettes like juul they will no longer sell flavored cartridges. Unflavored and menthol will still be available.
This does NOT apply to refillable tank systems like vape mods.

So there should be steep price cuts to clearance them out. It is time to quit or go shopping for a tank system.

And Big Tobacco lobbying prevented them from losing a huge piece of business: tanks are not included in the ban: vape shops use those to refill capsules. So, kids will still be able to get them illegally through straw purchases. More deaths in the offing...

This has proved again that the fda is trying to kill people. The fda regulations are garbage.
If companies lobby politicians, everything is passed until some people dying.

The government don't give two craps about substances and health. Alcohol and tobacco are responsible for 150,000+ deaths yearly, and they're still legal. Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death in the country and alcohol is third. This legislation is another garbage, "feel good" regulation that will have next to no impact.

Yeah! Let's make everything illegal! Let's also make sure we assign work locations and decide where people live! Yeah! I love communism!

Make it illegal and people we will overload our prison systems more so than now. Educate people and apply funding to that sector and people will hopefully make better decisions. People will find their vice- I'd much prefer to not feed the people in jail/prison for smoking or drinking. #prohibition

Big tobacco didn't benefit from this at all! This actually hurts their after the fact, late to the game, presence. Juul was the corporate terrorist that poisoned those kids. A tainted batch? That's cool with upper management at big tobacco. Ship it anyway. Focus your anger on the ones who should go to jail, but aren't going to.

Most of the vape industry is grass roots, and local. Trump made a smart move by not pissing off the vapers. There are a lot of them out there, and this issue is a big one. Taking away flavors is a stupid idea, and does nothing to solve the problem.

Move out of your cloud of exhaled vapor and look around.

Yes, but they come in 12 packs now, and are called cigars. They're the same as they ever were...

Your point seems to have been left out of your comment???

EDIT: Oh, you should read the news more often: Breja says the company knowingly sold at least 1 million contaminated mint-flavored pods and refused to recall them.

The cigar paper cloves are not the same as the old ones.

It's been years since I've had a clove.. But the last Djarum Kretek (brown,) I didn't notice any difference at all. Different brands maybe different, I don't know. I only liked one brand.
