Our government says e-cigarettes and vaping are the latest “epidemic” among teens. So the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it will restrict them. Cities across the country are banning e-cigarette use in public. But e-cigarettes help smokers quit traditional cigarettes.

Michelle Minton of the Competitive Enterprise Institute tells John Stossel that people have misconceptions about e-cigarettes. “It’s about 95 percent less harmful than a normal traditional cigarette,” she says. That’s because e-cigarettes let people get a hit of nicotine without actually burning tobacco. The burning of paper and tobacco leaves is what makes cigarettes so dangerous.

Talk to literally any vaper and they will tell you a very similar story. “I’ve smoked my whole life, tried almost everything to quit, vaping was the only thing that worked.”  I have a very very similar story.  This is one of the reasons vapers get so confused when people like the Surgeon General tell smokers that vaping wont help them .

Despite Jerome Adams doing everything he can to ensure that smokers keep smoking, people have still managed to find their way to vaping and have made the switch to less harmful nicotine alternatives.  Thankfully, the science on the subject doesn’t change to fit the needs of the Surgeons General’s confusing agenda.

States are responding to their own outbreaks of COVID-19 by implementing different versions of social distancing and shutting down non-essential services. While some of these businesses are being granted exemptions (for example, restaurants can still offer curbside pick-up and delivery and liquor stores are open with strict social distancing protocols), there are questions about whether or not vape shops are allowed to remain open in any capacity.
