“Vaping” Pot: All The Cool Kids Are Doing It




|| By FITSNEWS || According to a new study published in Pediatrics magazine (a publication which literally flies off the shelves, we’re told), 27 percent of teenagers in Connecticut who smoke pot and use electronic cigarettes have … wait for it … used their vaporizers to smoke marijuana.

Really?  Only 27 percent?

Kids really are dumber than we thought these days …

Anyway, cue “war on drugs” apoplexy …

From USA Today:

Marijuana use in other forms can cause several health problems such as short-term memory loss, slow learning, decreased sperm count and lung damage, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“We now know it’s happening, but there are more questions about who is using and how damaging it is,” Morean said.

E-cigarette use among youth increased more than 200 percent from 2011 to 2013, according to a report in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. Those surveyed had not tried regular cigarettes.

Well, well …

“These findings raise concerns about the lack of e-cigarette regulations and the potential use of e-cigarettes for purposes other than vaping nicotine,” the study’s authors noted.

Really?  Is that so?  Didn’t we once have a president who used cigars for something other than their intended purpose?

Don’t say we didn’t warn you this was going to happen, though …

This website has long supported vapor cigarettes … and consistently opposed efforts to subject them to unnecessary regulation and taxation.  If you ask us (and you’re reading this, so you did), this is just another excuse to senselessly expand the federal government’s failed “War on Drugs.”

Not to mention demonize vaping itself …
