FWIW - this is an article from over a year ago - https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-bans-juul-e-cigarette-a-grave-danger-to-public-health/

While I do find it curious that in the last few weeks we've seen a proliferation news stories about vaping/juuling being deadly. I just want to point out that:

a) We've known for a while that Juul has higher concentrations of some harmful and/or addictive items
b) As this article shows, the US was slower to address concerns than Israel and the UK which did so almost a year ago
c) Vaping is relatively new, and we're adding more things to it (CBD and/or THC seem pretty popular in the last few months), we still don't understand the long term effects. I would also speculate that some of those severely injured were either mixing up their own mixes (or being sold them) that overly concentrated some of the bad stuff.

I think it got attention as they discovered the connection between these and a lung disease in teens.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Vaping has been for the past few years an endorsement of lifestyle disconnected from reality. I.e. "I am a non-smoker, and just puff some water vapor. Nothing wrong with that".

As for the flavored vapes, I find many (if not all) environmentally noxious.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In the US. But it was on both Israel and the UK's radar for a while because of some of the things they put into it. Like 3x the maximum nicotine allowed in cigarettes in Britain.

Once we get SCOTUS nominations right, every other positive development is just a bonus.

off topic but not sure why this doesn't get more press. Especially as a democratic fear tactic .
