Another depressing link
Another depressing link

Just another article I found on Google News. Apparently, there was an anti-vaping hate rally where the whole point of it was to get people mad about vaping, using claims that e-cigs are targeted to children. The ringleader, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, claims that “The same companies that peddled ‘Joe Camel’ and similar, kid-friendly images to an earlier generation are back with new ad strategies that appear to target e-cigarettes just as explicitly toward children and teens, with little or no regard for any potential health impacts."

And here's the real kicker: Jeff Stier, from the National Center for Public Policy Research, tried to defend e-cigs after the rally, and was "drowned out by the chants of anti-vaping activists," according to this article.

So basically, this is just more evidence that the truth doesn't matter to these people. They don't care that vaping is safer than smoking, and they don't care that we've proven ourselves time and again to NOT be marketing to minors. This is pure hatred, aimed directly at all of us. To them, we are the smoking industry, up to its old tricks again.

"He who establishes his argument by noise and command, shows that his reason is weak."
