    Oh boy, Puff Bars could be next. And so it continues... And this piece seems intentionally written to reinforce all aspects of ANTZ propaganda. However, if these are teens, they are not 21 -- so who's buying? Perhaps the real issue is the new law doesn't permit underage purchase with doctor's prescription so the hardcore don't return to cigarettes or other desperate measures.

    Teens find a big loophole in the new flavored vaping ban and the news has caught on fast

    "Puff Bars"?

    Had to do a web-search.

    While this loophole may make it easier on for the teens, they would be getting it anyway. There is always an adult to get it for them somewhere

    And that is the 1200 lbs Social Sources Elephant in the room that None of the Anti e-Cigarette people want to Talk About.

    I still want to know why parents aren't parenting and are expecting the government to handle the problem of their children that are obtaining e-cigarettes illegally.

    This is what teens do imho and bans do make things more desireable to the young.

    I'll put my hand up - I was managing to buy cigarettes well before I had reached the then legal age of 16, and now I don't live too far away from the pub where my cousin and I bought pints of export strength lager when we were two years under age back in the early 60s.

    I don't see this as "Teens finding a loophole" but rather some manufacturer's marketing department doing so.

    However, I question whether this loophole actually exists. Juul was clearly on the market prior to the 8/8/2016 "No new products without a PMTA" deadline, but I rather doubt that products like Puff Bar and Buzz were.

    I too was today year's old when learning what a Puff Bar is.

    I predict by June of 2020 (if not sooner), Puff Bar will be under as much scrutiny (from ANTZ types) as Juul was, or still is. That vague loophole will be closed rather quickly.

    And yet, kids are still going to continue vaping.

    Thank God.

    You sell stuff to minors in NYC you will lose your business.

    They are very tough with enforcement around these parts, including sending in undercover personnel to bars, bodegas, gas stations, etc..

    I don’t think that is going to be the case everywhere. A lot of places just don’t have the budget.

    Enforcement is going to be a nightmare.
