What could go wrong with deliberately inhaling a concentrated volume of heated, vaporized glycol and various oil residue?
Interesting. Do you believe this is what has caused the vape deaths in recent news? If so, how?

Exactly! My dad successfully quit many years ago. I tried it but never got addicted. It's just so nasty having to be forced smelling that crap when people smoke near building entrances. I just wave my arms around an yell "pew!" And glare at the person.

It just seems funny that you guys are terming it "sick," "disgusting," and "nasty," yet you willfully did it. Now that you've quit, you're looking down on those who do. Seems very common with people who quit something. "I tried it but never got addicted." Thank your lucky stars, I guess?

I'm not a smoker, but I never get the rage against them. Ex-smokers can be the worst. (Like ex-overweighters, ex-alcoholics, etc....)

Maybe they quit because it was “sick, disgusting and nasty.” Same with overweighters and alcoholics?

Well, yeah, but the outrage and disgust can seem a little over the top. Not necessarily in this thread, but just in general.

It's perfectly normal for an ex-smoker to feel this way once they've left the darkness and stepped into the light. Suck it up, buttercup.

Another issue that I don't think has been studied like traditional tobacco smoke is what effect the secondhand smoke from these things has on innocent bystanders. And like the OP was talking about they emit a pretty large cloud of "fog".

I'm not Canadian but I think I recall that Canada allowed smoking in high school up until relatively recently.

I don't know that these were actually school sanctioned areas but more likely areas where the students wouldn't get in trouble for smoking. If someone has some insight on the school actually formalizing these areas (i.e. putting a sign up that says "designated student smoking area", etc.), I'd be interested in knowing.
