Innovate, don’t just ban wholesale


FOR the past few months, there has been a lot of news about how vaping products have resulted in several deaths, most in the United States. Since then, several countries – China, India and Singapore – have placed a blanket ban on all vaping and e-cigarette-related products.

It is easy to claim that these “vaping-related deaths” are the result of these evil vaping devices causing havoc in society. But taking a few seconds to read beyond the headlines reveals that these deaths were not caused by vaping devices, but from the tampering of vaping cartridges and the usage of THC oil, a substance found in marijuana, instead. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States has reported that in every vaping-related death, the victim had traces of an additive used in marijuana vaping which is never found in original nicotine vaping products.
