More Propaganda
https://fox2now.com/2019/06/20/vape-pen-...his-teeth/

Another case where (most assuredly) an inexperienced user was incorrectly operating a mech.

This stupid story cites that "thousands" of such injuries have occurred, and link to a site that states the number being in the low 2000 mark, for all time. And that number involves the overwhelming majority that were not injury causing, so that is HIGHLY misleading.

The story may be true, but it is being used as toxic and grossly misleading propaganda to support a narrative, rather than simply being reported as news.

As always, shame on them.

RE: More Propaganda
I've come to the point of reckoning that any media report on vaping is utterly wrong with malign intent.

So I've stopped listening to news at all.

Worked wonders for my mental state.

Mechanical mods use larger and more powerfull batteries than most eevices? Comparing apples and oranges here aren't we ?
A compilation of half truths and bogus statements is not a study .

Why be normal when wierd is so much fun.

RE: More Propaganda
Worst thing I have seen in the media lately is not a hit piece on vaping at all. I watch #LivePD because I think it's a nice way to pass some beer. Anyway, nearly every week some asshole gets busted with a THC vape pen. No one has condemned vaping on the show, but when that's ALL YOU SEE, you tend to think of vaping as being naughty indeed. Shame!

RE: More Propaganda
"Street Vaping" strikes again, and pushes vaping even further back into the pits of hell for the general public.

In my last post above, I mentioned how most of the vaping I see on TV is the illegal THC variety. Seeing it in that context IS bad, and makes vaping look like a real nuisance. I call that street vaping. It is not an entity coming out in opposition to our hobby, but rather highlighting an abusive practice instead.

Well, the news folks will never miss a chance to pile on.

RE: More Propaganda
Talk about a sucker punch . The thc/cbd " vape " is not even remotely the same for starters theese do infact contain oils wher as e-juice/liquid does not . This is like sayin you shouldn't eat chocolate because my brother got sick from eating dog shit . Just annother way to muddy the waters .
