Re: “Questionable Authority: Seven Days Staffers Weigh in on Vermont Youth and e-Cigarettes

Great satire. My favorite is "crayola coffin". Seriously, though, vaping is at crisis levels in Vermont schools. Many older people are unaware of the epidemic of nicotine addiction that's going on among kids. Many kids do not know that vapes have nicotine in them, and they know that nicotine is addictive (second only to heroin). Vapes have up to twice the nicotine as a cigarette.

It is time to raise the age to buy from 18 to 21. It was done for guns, alcohol, and marijuana.

Re: “Waiting to Inhale: Lawmakers Consider Raising Smoking Age to 21

Raising the age to 21 is a good idea. Most smokers get addicted before 18 and got their cigarettes from peers who are 18 - like high school seniors. A smaller amount of smokers get hooked a couple years after. This bill would make a big dent in the number of people becoming addicted to smoking.

Also, if Peter Shumlin has any sense he will support this bill, and not veto it as a parting shot against the office he's leaving, like Bob Kiss did when he vetoed the Church St. ban. He could learn a thing by studying how Kiss' political career went after leaving the mayor's office.
