People in Minnesota or even the Sierra Nevada and certainly Alaska might have a different view.
Also, if we vape occasionally indoors, and discreetly, we EDUCATE people about vaping. For instance I vape in my office at work, a little. Before I started that, I demo'd it outside for some colleagues. Get them used to it in small increments. Explain first.
Same with the restaurants, if I'm inhaling and they don't see anything much being exhaled, it's pretty non-scary. I'll stop IMMEDIATELY if asked, and I don't do it in family restaurants near kids. But we have to be out there a LITTLE bit or the "don't understand vaping" thing will never go away, especially with the ANTZ trying so hard to scare people.
And another point: the more people have seen good-citizen-style vaping, the sillier the ANTZ look. Which is, IMO, a big party of WHY the ANTZ don't want people to see us. To keep their kingdom.
But being a so-and-so arrogant jerk while vaping -- who knows, maybe the ones that do that are undercover ANTZ? An ANTZ doctor DID go to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisor's meeting and blow huge clouds, to show them something "they don't want to see." And it was family members of smokers brought up in smoky houses and cars who most-opposed "seeing that again after all these years."
