FDA Ban in Convenience Stores and Gas Stations?

1 Like

Why they don’t just fine the crap out of 7-11 for underage sales, as the law already specifies…They could make this correction by increasing enforcement on underage selling…

However… maybe the bright side is Vapeshops will get a new boom in clients!

Great article and boy do they go overboard :nauseated_face:

I have one issue with this article though.

“Tobacco flavors are awful. You do not have harm reduction with these products.”

I’m looking for the ‘offended’ emoji but I don’t think there is one, I guess these ones will have to do :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_thermometer: :face_with_head_bandage:

:wink:

I guess FDA should start selling cigarettes in cigarette shops only

There’s no bright side when the gubment steps in.

Do they plan to ban cigarettes there as well? You know, actually dangerous things?

Yeah, I totally understand the ridiculousness of this action. That part about the brightside was a little tongue-in-cheek, but it could actually be an unintended boon to the B&M’s.

They won’t let that boon last, for sure. This is yet another very thinly veiled show of support for Big Tobacco and Big Pharma at the expense, yet again, of public health done in the name of public safety. An absolute joke.

Seriously— ban vape sales in gas stations yet continue to allow cigarette sales? No one can actually see the hand being played?

Another paid shill. If they were truly interested in public health and safety, they would also ban cigarettes (any tobacco products) and alcohol. Some folks may not believe in good versus evil, but this is pure evil. Selling out the public’s health to pacify BT/BP disgusts me.

Things like this make no sense to me, but I mean why should it make sense to anyone and at the end it’s California… People can’t be helped here anymore lol.

First they started in other counties/cities and surprisingly it passed in most of the “hippy” cities.

San marin county was set for a hearing in the middle of nov. and scheduled for a overall vote by the end of nov.

Guess they didn’t like to wait or thought that it’s safe to assume a outcome in their favor, before the actual hearings.

So they issued this:

I could care less I don’t live in that county but man I can’t wait to get out of this horrible state…one day :frowning:

Sorry to hear that, but one day …

No worries I work hard for that. I could go right now, but maybe I’m too german, I like a good safety net just in case things go wrong. I also like to look at different states first and what not. But more difficult to accomplish that. In other words I’m not adventurous enough to just aim for the next “best” state and pray it works out lol

I see it as the stepping stone for the bigger ban they have planned Phil. It’s why some vape companies are backing out of online sales. This is a sad sad day for vapers.

No question it’s far from over. BT/BP want vaping dead and they will stop at nothing to pay off the right people. It’s such an obvious sham that frankly I’m constantly amazed at the indifference/ignorance of sheeple who have no clue what a targeted overreach it is.

Not just that… But the irony of such a minuscule amount of infractions being blown out of proportions.

How many convenience stores are in California alone? 10,000? 50,000?
Yet only 1300 citations.

Might as well say “ok, there was a 10 percent* violation rate in California.”
But not a single one in the rest of the country. :roll_eyes:

*= assuming there were only 13,000 convenience stores… (which almost has to be a gross underestimation on my part).

I mean seriously, the numbers are worthless without further facts. And what’s worse is that the FDA is going to unchecked, and draconian lengths. /smh

Just disgusting.

NY was in the shitter WAY before Cuomo.

Remember FSC cigarettes?
Yeah. Thank New York for those as well.

Remember when NY banned soda in larger then 20 oz for a few months because they thought it made kids fat. NY is the east coast verson of California

Soooooo we’re banning ecigs from stores and gas stations because they’re selling them to minors without checking their ID’s, right ?? What ELSE is being sold without checking ID’s to the minors as well I wonder …
