Very true. It’s unfortunate, but here in the U.S., public health issues are often turned into partisan issues, which in turn encourages some people to reflexively pick a side before they’ve even educated themselves on the topic being debated. The media coverage only makes that worse, as the media here in the States has a tendency to turn stories into much bigger controversies than they already are. That is, I believe, what has happened with vaping, and I’m afraid it may end up cutting current smokers off from a potential life-saving cessation aid.

Anyways, thanks for reading and commenting! I appreciate it! :)
