Marijuana legalizers for illogical vape bans in California

“California is a funny place. A few years ago, marijuana users were put in jail, while smoking cigarettes was everywhere, even in hospitals. Today, pot has been legal for recreational use since 2016, but cigarette and other tobacco use increasingly is banned. Sure, it makes sense to ban using either in public places, and for youngsters. But can’t the politicians just let adults alone to decide for themselves what they inhale in private? The latest example of regulatory overreach concerns ‘synthetic nicotine.’ It sounds sinister, but it’s just a form of nicotine made for ‘vapes,’ especially the flavored kind. And it’s supposedly behind a ‘vaping epidemic’ among young people.” (06/15/22)
