Vape Explosion Victim Opposes National Vaping Ban
Chuck Schumer, a Democrat minority Senate leader, has expressed a view a couple of weeks ago that vaping devices are nothing but ‘ticking time bombs’. He draws light on a single sentence in the FDA report that states that ‘there were 64 reported vape incidents in 2016’ - a reminder: none of those incidents included fatalities (meanwhile, cigarettes are responsible for thousands of deaths every single day). However, this is reason enough for Schumer to push for an all-out ban on vape devices.
Unfortunately for him, not even the explosion victims share his draconian views. Mike Rose, a college student and a former vaper, had his teeth knocked out when a vape pen exploded in close proximity of his mouth. Rose says that he no longer vapes but believes that a ban is not a solution at all. ‘People need to be educated, they need to know how to properly use the devices and what can go wrong’, he states.
