In recent months, there's been a surge of reports about hundreds of people ending up in the hospital due to severe lung illnesses and other health problems after vaping -- and at least 33 people have died. It's clear we're just starting to understand the dangers of vaping.

Majority of the liquids used here are THC based liquids that have been purchased on the black market. However, the biggest issue has been growing dangers and unease that authorities have addressed due to these deaths.

So a number of states including California have decided to impose a temporary ban through their use of an executive order. So what are these laws telling us? I’ll tell you! Let us stop using a scientifically proven safer method of smoking in vaping and go back to the traditional more trusting cigarettes? Oh yeah that makes complete sense right?

As of November 2018 Cigarette smoking has been responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from second-hand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day. So why has this not been promoted in the media and culminated in any banning orders?

There has been no substantial evidence concluding that premium and reputable e-liquid companies have directly been the cause of deaths.

In fact the writers who produced the literature DANIELLE KOSECKI, CORINNE REICHERT, SHELBY BROWN themselves concede, “THC blamed for majority of cases”.

According to numerous articles “Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Smoking also increases risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis”. So what is the bigger threat?

If the laws are going to be stringent on imposing vape bans, (which again is ridiculous in itself), then there should be even stricter ones on cigarettes period! I mean if you are allowed to carry a gun, smoke a cigarette that has thousands of toxic chemicals that vaping does not, why are smoking premium, tested and well-produced liquids outlawed?

National Health Service (NHS), have stated vaping is 'far safer than smoking' says 'landmark' study. E-cigarettes are designed for users to inhale nicotine without most of the harmful effects of smoking. There has been much discussion over the benefits of vaping over conventional smoking methods and this is the first long-term study assessing these effects.
