Making fun of the vaping community is the new thing this month, isn't it? Went from hardly hearing anything about them most of the time in February to hearing about them almost daily and John Oliver doing throwawa jokes about them by the end of March.
Not that it's unwarranted.
I commute to work by bus, a couple of weeks ago the driver was vaping.
I was hoping it would happen but I'd already abused front page privileges enough for the week so I was waiting for someone else to do it.
I got into "vaping" when it was still very new and novelty and was basically just about weening yourself off smoking. The vape I have is some kind of ancient baby toy compared to the ludicrously overpowered, suicide machines people use now that dose you with, like, a cigarette pack's worth of nicotine every single hit and fill your lungs with about 20 cubic feet of glycol.
I've used the old kind that are designed for PERFECTLY 100% LEGAL HERBAL BLENDS and if you can even see anything when you exhale you're doing something wrong.
I assume the liquid for these is specifically designed to make a big cloud as a marketing thing.
I think these things are fine in theory, it's the users that are the problem.
Unfortunately, the users and their retarded bullshit are what is ultimately going to fuel the want for moral panic laws about vaping. It'll probably be outlawed or massively over-regulated in the next few years.
With cannabis, there is such a thing as getting liquid catridges to vaporize - but they aren't very popular. The vast majority of people that "vape" use one of two things: special pens that heat up minute amounts of wax/shatter/honeycomb/what have you, or using a dab rig (which usually accommodates the larger hits, like a 'bong' for vaping) which involves dropping some amount of the same substance into a pre-heated titanium or ceramic nail.
What's funny is that the focus is on people doing the relatively harmless thing (using a pen / catridge setup). Meanwhile, my friend (who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near industrial equipment) has now figured out that you just get a little self-lighting blowtorch nozzle from Ace Hardware to stick over one of those cheap three-dollar propane cannisters, and use that to heat up your dab rig's nail.
People of all ranges of intelligence or competency may now be regularly operating blowtorches which can easily fall over while still lit and burn down their house (and possibly someone else's).
