    Good story. Read through but then got logon. And couldn't pull quotes. One akin to "Not the results FDA wants". Also pointed out the direct harm of demonizing by government and media (which makes me hot under the collar). Maybe message is getting heard. If you can read, post a few quotes.

    To read: Open an incognito window without ad-blocking. Google the headline and click the link in Google's results.

    First off, there's no doubt it's safer (which is not the same as claiming it's "safe"). Secondly, if you make it "less fun", you dramatically decrease the chance that people will successfully switch from combustible cigarettes. One of the reasons vaping works for so many for whom other forms of NRT failed is because it is enjoyable, i.e. "fun".

    So? We ostensibly live in a society where the desires of the majority are not supposed to be able to trample the rights of a minority.

    All in all, it's a pretty decent article though.

    We live in a society of sheep, which are herded to and fro by click bait media and propaganda.
