    Where's the flipped out? Assuming we all know leads to folly. He was POd didn't say he screamed at her or made a public spectacle of it. I can be very POd and still speak calmly.

    We know about carbone monoxide and there are still 20,000 visits to the emergency room. If you buy a generator at the store, on the label it will say Never use a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, or other partly enclosed areas.
    Seriously? You just tried a fact based response to that post? Good diety! You are talking about .0001 of the population. At the time of mass production of the automobile that would come out to about 90 deaths.

    Why does it HAVE TO be proven safe? Why don't they prove that it is bad? That's what a court of law requires.

    Just saying; society and its winers are getting a to much. Nothing should be done until the FDA comes with a ruling.

    As to vaping in public, I can last an hour before I get my fix. In-door public places, I am discreet. Heck, bathrooms have stalls. I really avoid the vaping clouds, too.

    I don't want to put a bad spin on the public's opinion.

    I'm with the OP on this one! I vape openly in most places I go. Let's be realistic here, in a pediatrician's office, really?

    Personally, my daughter of 2 yrs loves the smell of my vapes, says it smells pretty and yummy. Kinda cute.
    But my middle son, now 15 was hospitalized at 4 months of age and was there for 8 months. Childrens hospital,in DC.
    I would not have appreciated any one vaping, or smoking near him till he hit the double digits in age and was old enough to move to another location if the smoke bothered him.

    Luckily my daughter is a healthy thriving lil young lady. But it was very stressful for me with my son. Not knowing what caused his illness and the fear and stress of it happening again. I was told his heart could suddenly stop for any unknown reason.

    We likely wont know any negative side effects of vaping for another 10 or so years. Much like many medications we are put on, years later they come back and say oh, thats not good for you. Oops.

    Point is regardless if its ok or not , safe or not, i feel people/children should be treated with respect especially if they are unable to remove themselves from the environment.

    This is my opinion only.

    To me, if you're in an area where you wouldn't smoke an analog...then keep that level of consideration and don't vape. Just because you "can" and it's not harmful, doesn't mean you "should". But that's just me. Not judging.

    Just because you don't like walmart doesn't mean that you have to put it down... for some that is the ONLY store for MILES around. Personally I'd rather have walmart clothes than crappy $60+ shirts that last only a few wearings before it is torn to and back. Just saying.


    Back on topic: I don't think blowing clouds everywhere is very proactive, it'll just tick off the ignorant and the considerate vapers. Every time we go shopping, we put away our PV's. We are allowed to vape at our gas station but it still feels rude so we don't.

    I also don't think fussing loudly at someone being rude enough to blow clouds around others children is very proactive either. Maybe quietly asking them to stop first is better? Then if they start being a butt then say something more... well... to your liking.

    This is all just my . No offense is intended and I truly am sorry if you feel so.

    You still think it's smoking, and you still think it should be treated like smoking. But it's not smoking. It doesn't have the same health issues, or the smell.

    I don't care for the way the lady did it in your story. A pediatricians office is out of line, IMO. But as long as you think of it as "You're smoking, go away!" then it's really hard to take you serious.

    30 years of smoking, over 3 packs a day before I started vaping. Then I bought my first PV. Cigarettes have lost their power over me. I've been free since 10/06/2011. Thanks ECF!
