    Cigarettes are cheaper in India anyways than vaping. Our office smoking rates dropped significantly because of vaping. This is backwards IMO.

    All this freakout is rumored of some dumb kids ordering random THC vape juice from China.

    Old tobacco is quick to pounce on the opportunity to kill vaping.

    Who the hell vapes in India..?
    One does not need to vape as the pollution is so bad in Delhi. They are seeing a huge rise in lung disorders that is the equivalent to smoking anyway.

    Check the video in the link. Scary..

    Everyone in our office trying to quit. It's not a replacement for smoking, it's a tool to help ween off nicotine addiction.

    Poor people still smoke, vaping is fucking expensive.

    Was talking about Trump's move with my wife... big tobacco definitely had a hand in that.

    See, that's what it's SUPPOSED to be, but it's also turned into the new fad, where even non-smokers are doing it to look cool. It's ridiculous.

    Here, sure. India, definitely not.

    I'm commenting specifically on the India ban.

    Here we go, 1st case in Canada.

    And it's the topic on Dr. Oz today, so expect stay at home moms to go apeshit on vaping tomorrow.

    I read that smoking kills about 480,000 people per year in the United States while vaping has so far been associated with 7?? deaths, doesn't sound like a bad trade off. However we also need to keep in mind that 480,000 dying is from people who have likely been smoking for decades while people have been vaping for what I estimate only the past 5 years or so.

    The stupid thing is that everyone jumped on the stupid bandwagon and nobody wanted to admit there could be health issues.

    It's only vaping... What could it hurt?

    NY banned flavoured juice... big tobacco are such dinosaurs... could have such huge branding/licensing opportunities and embrace the future instead of spending on that money lobbying legislation

    Even prior to this it was banned in many provinces. When I went to India on business two years ago I was the only one vaping and had lots of interested people asking me about it before I found out that particular province had banned it.

    This was expecially challenging for me as I broke my mod a few days into my 4 weeks there. No replacements to be found anywhere. Went back to smoking until I got back.
