Recently there has been a ban in the state of New York on flavored e-cigs and pods. You can no longer buy them from a retailer or have them shipped in like we always have. I am going to address a couple issues in this short explanation on why you should sign this form. To start I will address the real reasoning behind the only 6 deaths caused from “flavored e-cigs” so far. Secondly I will touch on what our options are without the e-cigs and why they are just a worst way to go overall. And finally I will talk about the real reason e-cigs were created in the first place. 

Now I want to start by saying this. Death is a horrible thing, it is something we cannot run from and to everyone who has lost there lives to smoking these the wrong way I am very sorry. It was proven that the 6 or so deaths caused by e-cigs and flavored pods were bought not from the retailer itself  but as some form of street Tobacco/thc mix these pods have had in them. Although the retail pods and e-cigs are not the greatest for you smoking of course is never always a good thing it was better than the alternative, which brings me into my next statement. 

We do have a choice when it comes to smoke or not. But with this ban our choices have been limited. Without the flavored pods or e-cigs we are steered into a direction that we all know is a bad way to go. We can smoke still but they are forcing us to try bigger and more dangerous things. Things that cause cancer and rotted teeth and that have a terrible odor. We have been forced to strictly rely on the old way of doing things the cigarettes the chewing Tobacco the countless other options that have been around for years and haven’t had any type of recent bans or allocations against them. Of course we can smoke these things of course we can go out a buy a pack and smoke it all until it’s gone but we didn’t want to back when we started and why should we now. Many people smoking the flavored pods and e-cigs were people who have smoked cigarettes in the past. And that brings me to my final statement. 

In conclusion to all this mess I want to state that e- cigs and flavored pods for many were a saving grace something they could turn to if they didn’t want there teeth to rot away and they didn’t want to smell bad 24/7. They were a way for older adults as well as younger to finally break away from there old habits and start a cleaner and better life. My mom for example smoked every day her entire life she has tried to quit in the past and nothing has worked patches, gum, but the week she started smoking from a e-cig. She said her life has changed. She said she loves how it’s a different way to relieve stress, it doesn’t stain her walls it doesn’t hurt her teeth anymore. Flavored pods are not advertising smoking to kids and teens it’s giving The teens that want to smoke another option than what they had before. 

I guess what I’m saying in all this is if you aren’t willing to ban it all. Then there is no good reason to single us out and ban just one. Thank you if have made it this far give us a second if your time for a signature. Or just share this with your friends there are a lot of people out there that want to voice there opinion on this and I am more than happy to give them a way to.
