  • I buy ejuice that has a warning and a cap that you have to press down and then twist, not sure that is enough. I don't have kids but I would support better child safety caps and pretty much anything to keep it out of the hands of children. Child safety and fire hazard issues still need to be worked out asap. The other thing is many bottles have small nipple ends that the child might naturally want to suckle. They should make it like a lock on nozzle. So the fluid doesn't come out until the nozzle is locked in place. Each tank would have to have a universal fitting. Lock turn and squeeze. Along with the press down cap. It would save lives and would not be expensive. -shakeymclovin

  • all of the e juice I have ever bought has a child proof cap. the lady probably went out and found the only bottle that doesn't have it. e cigarettes will save millions upon millions of lives. parents need to be rresponsible about storage. they aren't demonizing alcohol because a kid got into the parents liquor cqbinet. plus, alcohol bottles don't have child proof caps. vaping is a wonderful thing that improves millions of lives and preserves.millions of lives. if they are going to talk about the dangers it is only fail they talks about the many benefits too.

  • A real cigg is easier for a kid too get his hands on and eat it or shuff it up his nose ….. BS ….. im getting tired of the excuses for the vapers out there too not vape because holy fuck what if your kid would drink it ….. vapers are no stoners who forget to putt it safe away for children …. vaping saved my life and made me stop smoking so 🖕 you and give your kid a coca cola with all the shit whats inside of that

  • Garbage, FDA is seriously after this. Money money money., Always the motive. Doctors like this guy are paid to say this shit.

  • Bullshit! These nicotine bottles have safety caps, this is video is a lie from the Tobacco companies losing millions???'s in cash due to vast numbers of people across the world who switch to vaping. Turkish Baths are not harmful to your lungs nor is vaping.
