    Never, ever buy an e-cigarette from a grocery store!!! They are made IN CHINA!! Go to a real vape store. You must be 21 to buy and they check your ID every single time!!! Kids are putting DRUGS in them!!! You can not believe what the media tells you!!!!

    They NEED TO STOP SELLING CIGARETTES PERIOD!!! They’ve known for decades the CANCER THEY CAUSE!!! NOT ONLY TO SMOKERS, BUT TO OTHERS BY SECOND HAND SMOKE!!! APPARENTLY, there are too many kickbacks being made! So, they just put warnings on the packs of cigarettes!!! Well, it’s NOT FAIR TO PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO CHOICE TO BREATHE IN SECOND HAND SMOKE ON PUBLIC STREETS!
