I just wonder how come vaping is coming under fire, but cigs are ok.
Like, I do think vaping is dumb
but that’s mostly because I don’t like it. Hell, I think mushrooms are dumb. I think people who eat them look like they’re doing something unenjoyable and make fun of them for it (at my own expense – correct opinions sometimes do that) but, that doesn’t mean vapes should be outlawed.
But birth control pills? “That’s ok.” Hell, what about birth control injections? “Let’s give it a shot!”
Cell phones? “Totally convenient let’s do it.”
Alcohol? Totes cool. “My dad had a drink in college so fuck you you can pry my poison from my cold dead fingers.”
All of these things carry inherent risks, and there’re many more examples.
But vapes? “OMGERD 6 PEOPLE DIEDED, CRISIS, GAME OVER.”
Assault rifles “FUCK YOU GUN LOBBIES HAVE FINANCIAL BACKING SO IT’S TIME FOR TWISTED LOGIC RAAWRAWRAWRAWRAWRAWR”
The above leads me to think that if a company is supposed to be successful, and it’s product carries social/health risks, that it’s supposed to employ lobbyists to avoid an existential crisis. That’s the only logic-flow I can weave between vapes, and every other product that may carry inherent health risks about things we don’t know (OR, even do know about.)
And again, this is a personal note: seriously, I lost a friend to vaping.
He sucked on a vape and became a hipster and therefore turned into a piece of shit.
But this is America, and we all have the right to become a piece of shit as long as we can afford it and are technically only physically hurting ourselves.
And I don’t know why that’s so hard for others to grasp.
