    1. Cuts into tax revenues.
    2. Cuts into tobacco profits.
    3. Cuts into medical and pharma profits.
    4. Increases population.

    Expect heavy regulation.

    Remember the those in-school movies we use to see about how things will be in the 21st century? How cars would fly, how trains would travel on magnetic rails, how we would colonize other planets, etc... IMO, vaping should be hailed as evolutionary. Hydrogen technology is a reality, but it's being kept buried to protect the petroleum burning industry. Clean burning fuel, from water! The only output emission from burning hydrogen is water vapor. Sound familiar? Oil is the lifeblood of the world economy, and that's fine. Personally, I would rather pay the same for hydrogen and have cleaner air. This exactly how I feel about cigarettes vs vaping.

    People that don't believe in ANY conspiracy theories are misled...
    Most of the world is a conspiracy theory on every level...

    Parents often conspire "against" their children as to how to "govern" them.
    (Just one simple and small example that all can understand)

    Backroom deals and conspiracy are the lifeblood of human endeavor.
    Always has been and always will be.

    What we do about it is the problem.
    And the answer might be that there isn't anything we CAN do.

    Checks and balances were supposed to be the key in our current form of government.
    Hence the rise of the "fourth branch of government" to avoid that little problem.

    I don't think of it as being a conspiracy, per se... It's just politics.

    Politics is intrinsically a conspiracy. But since this isn't the Outside, I'll stop there.

    What's this outside I keep reading about Rossum lol. Outside of this forum? Does it need to remain a safe space? :rolleyes: One where we can talk about vaping and restrictions but we darned well better not point the fingers at someone's favorite politicians or besmirch their Big Brother knows best Utopian worldview? We can whine but can't point out that our freedom to vape is being threatened by control freak leftists Democrats and corporate owned Republicans? The emporer wears no clothes here on this forum. There - said it. ;)

    The outside subforum on here is what he's talking about. It's not a safe space by any means.

    Sure and make sure you have a clean corner to curl up in when it gets dicey . There are a few in there that live to attack others for pretty much anything. If you join in you'll quickly learn who those are as they add minimal substance to the topics and derail virtually every thread into a pissing contest.
