    After that, the article disintegrates into ANTZ talking points.

    I never heard anything about an upcoming US Surgeon General report, and I haven't been able to find any other info about it.

    Orange County, North Carolina, apparently.

    I, too, figured it was Florida as the "Hillsborough Whitting building" mentioned didn't ring a bell for Orange County, California (my native area). I actually didn't know there was an Orange County in NC.

    Having lived in Irvine and Lake Forest for a number of years...
    I would have to agree.
    :)

    Glad to be back in San Diego though.
    Too damn hot up there for me.

    Not a very vape friendly place, to say the least!

    In Orange County, NC, you can vape in bars and restaurants.

    Nice and breezy where I am. If you're within ~5 miles from the ocean, you're fine. :D

    Hey, it's California. :facepalm:

    Vaping is banned on all UC campuses, but even professors have been seen vaping in class--nobody gives a rat's behind. :lol: Yet.

    Yep, California bans everything. Well, except the "other stuff" that some consider a medicine. You can use that anywhere with wild abandon, including public transport, where you'd be immediately arrested for smoking a cigarette or vaping.

    (And yes, I had a gig in West LA where I took public transit to and from the office, and personally witnessed the use of 'other stuff' in public on more than one occasion. In one case, on a Red Line subway train... no joke).
