L.A. City Council Unanimously Bans Vaping in Public Places
#1
It astounds me the level if ignorance that some reach when it comes to ecigs. It's like Government officals only see the little ecigs that look like real cigs and lump in our personal vaporizers with them in these bans.

At least they excluded vape lounges/stores, and theater from the ban but after reading this part of the article, I lost all faith in the level of knowledge these officials have on the matter while throwing around random legislation.

Quote:"Foes of e-cigarettes said they threaten to make smoking socially acceptable after years of public opinion campaigns to discourage the habit. Young people who get hooked on the nicotine in e-cigarettes may then turn to tobacco use, said Jonathan Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health."

I am constantly amazed how society always needs a group to persecute. I also wonder what will happen if e-cigs prove not to cause cancer or the other health issues traditional cigarettes cause. If science finds that to be true, we'll all know that the objections are mainly based on a need to disapprove of anything that brings people pleasure.

It's alright for them to ban public vaping, though. We'll keep doing as we wish in our homes, and there isn't much they can do about that.

The funny thing is that, over time many vapers switch to zero nic juice. What will they say then? The vapor is harmful even with no nicotine? They would have to ban Vegetable Glycerin or make it only available to those with a license but I don't see that happening.

I get the nicotine thing but for those of us that are about to be at zero nic, there is no way they can stop us from vaping, especially when you can make juice from items found at Walmart and vaporizers with parts from radio shack lol.

But yea I think your right, some groups just have to go after something, no matter what it is I suppose.

This is awful news. I hope it will be the last city to ban e-cigs, since they aren't harmful at all! Also, regular cigs should be rather banned.

This is like banning poppyseed muffins because they might encourage kids to take up heroin. Christ, the ignorance of these fat white politicians still startles me even after years of this crap.
