Those ‘cloud chasers’ have a lot to answer for. Before sub ohming, and cloud chasers, most indoor places allowed vaping, it was inoffensive and didn’t cause anybody any bother. Then some folk started going too far, blowing out giant plumes of thick, sweet smelling, vapour and all hell broke loose.
Honestly when I vape, you wouldn’t know I was doing it sometimes, unless you’re really watching me closely.
Anyway, back on point, I just think it is insanely unfair to group vapers with smokers. It’s like grouping coffee drinkers with alcohol drinkers... Both are consumed the same way, and both contain psychoactive substances. Despite causing very different levels of harm, to the user, bystanders, and society in general.
And I suppose if some folk with ashma “CAN be sensitive to environmental irritants, which COULD include vapour.” (Let’s hope they don’t shower.) Then I presume we’ll be banning other environmental irritants, such as deodorants, any source of smoke, and combustion engines (cars.) Not to mention the use of smoke machines in public places, which is the same technology, the same ingrediants, on a much larger scale. We should probably consider banning the consumption of peanuts in public places too, incase there is somebody close by who is highly allergic.
Part of me wishes I hadn’t said anything, as I don’t want to cause offense, but the other half of me thinks ‘sod it, you are the one that should be offended being grouped with smokers.’
