Vape and the FDA: Look Upon My Works and Despair

A certain hysteria has broken out over recent years. Dubbed the “teen vaping epidemic”, countless articles, reports and videos have been drafted on the subject. Contrary to how some might view the title of this article, this isn’t meant to disparage these people. There is a teen vaping epidemic. Studies from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and every teacher in America can confirm that this a real problem facing the modern world. The hysteria isn’t in the proclamation that there is an epidemic, but rather in our response to this epidemic. The reaction of the FDA’s overzealous regulation and the response of local and state government to this issue has been nothing short of hysterical.
