Well, I thought that it was agreed upon that electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are classified as a nicotine replacement therapy product too? (>_<)... And besides, it's irrelevant to implement the same taxes as e-cigarettes are not as harmful as the real thing - and should we remind them the reason for high taxes for tobacco cigar..?

This article conveniently left out the tax that would be levied against vapor products similar to the tax on tobacco. Most vapor shops already voluntarily prohibit sale to minors and would welcome legislation that enforces their position. The idea that the state would use a prohibitive tax to discourage use of these products while supplying free nicotine replacement therapies with comprable amounts of nicotine is ridiculous. The reality is these products help many, many people quit smoking and are hundreds of times healthier. Check out these articles if you are not convinced: http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jphp/journal/v32/n1/pdf/jphp201041a.pdf http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jphp/journal/v32/n1/pdf/jphp201041a.pdf

This is one of the most irresponsible reports I've ever heard. Is someone PAYING this guy to write these reports? So the store doesn't sell to those under 18, they have signs everywhere that say they don't sell to those under 18. The fear is that 18 year old kids will buy for those under 18. SO WHAT WILL THE LAW FIX? Making it a law that you have to be 18 to buy doesn't stop the 18 y/o from buying for his young friend-OR does it make the store self-regulate more.(they ALREADY don't sell to under 18, why the law?) IT ALLOWS NEW TAXES on the small business owner PERIOD. The gov is sticking it to the people, and this report is trying to help DISGUISE it for them. WHAT TOTAL JUNK REPORTING!!
