WHAT THE FOCUS IS RIGHT NOW ON FILLING LOTS OF JOBS. BUT FIRST IN THIS HALF-HOUR, SOME SOUTH CAROLINA LAWMAKERS ARE PROPOSING NEW REGULATIONS ON THE VAPING INDUSTRY. SO, FAR IT SOUNDS LIKE THE GOVERNOR IS NOT ON BOARD WITH THAT. DETAILS ON THE PROPOSAL. AT LEAST THREE SOUTH CAROLINA LAWMAKERS HAVE SPOKEN PUBLICLY ABOUT THE NEED TO REGULATE VAPING PRODUCTS HERE IN THE STATE INCLUDING THE CALL FOR A TEMPORARY BAN ON ALL VAPING SALES. ONE SOUTH CAROLINA LAWMAKER WANTS THE BAN FLAVORED PRODUCTS FROM SOUTH CAROLINA STORES. ANOTHER WANTS TO RAISE THE AGE TO PURCHASE AND USE THE PRODUCTS TO 21 YEARS OLD. COLUMBIA SENATOR DARYL JACKSON IS CALLING FOR MORE IMMEDIATE ACTION. WHAT I NOTICED WAS THERE ARE SOME GOVERNORS IN SOME STATES, THEY DECIDED THAT IT IS PROBABLY NECESSARY TO PUT A MORATORIUM ON THOSE PRODUCTS. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SENATOR JACKSON IS CALLING ON GOVERNOR HENRY MCMASTER TO DO. THERE’S SO MUCH WE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE HEALTH CONSEQUENCES OF VIDEOTAPING. BUT VAPE STORE OWNERS LIKE KEVIN MOORE SAY NOT SO FAST. HE OPENED IN 2013 AFTER SWITCHING FROM TRADITIONAL CIGARETTES. A MOVE HE CREDITS FOR SAVING HIS LIFE. I ACTUALLY BEAT LUNG CANCER. I COULDN’T SMOKE CIGARETTES ANYMORE NOR DID I WANT TO. SO I WENT TO OTHER ALTERNATIVES. BECAUSE THERE’S NO CARCINOGENICS AND TAR THAT STICK ON YOUR LUNGS. Reporter: LIKE OTHER VIDEOTAPE USERS HE IS NOT AGAINST SOME REGULATIONS BUT FEARS THE PROPOSALS TARGET THOSE WHO VAPE INSTEAD OF THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. BLACK MARKET PRODUCTS. DRUG DEALERS ARE TAKING THEM AND MIXING WITH THINGS AND THEY’RE IN THE SAME PACKAGING SO PEOPLE THINK IT IS A NAME BRAND AND IT’S NOT. THEY’RE GETTING SICK. AND WE’RE GETTING BANNED FOR IT. Reporter: THE EARLIEST BILLS CAN BE FILED IS DECEMBER BUT STORE OWNERS LIKE MOORE ARE ALREADY FEELING THE PRESSURE. THE PUBLIC IS SO SCARED ABOUT IT AND THEY’RE ONLY HEARING ONE SIDE OF IT. SO IT’S FOR US OUR BUSINESS IS DOWN 40 PERCENT ALREADY. SENATOR DARYL JACKSON SAYS HE DOES NOT WANT TO BAN VAPING PRODUCTS FOR THE ADULTS THAT USE THEM HOWEVER HE DOES THINK THE STATE NEEDS TO TAKE A STEP BACK AND RESEARCH THE PRODUCT FURTHER. IN THE MEANTIME, VAPE USERS AND VAPE STORE OWNERS WILL CONTINUE TO EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS HERE AT THE STATEHOUSE. IN COLUMBIA, 7 NEWS. SEVERAL CITIES, STATES HAVE ALREADY RAISED THE AGE TO 21 TO PUT A TEMPORARY BAN ON THE PRODUCTS AND TAKEN FLAVORED PRODUCT OFFS THE SHELVES. A FORMER DALLAS POLICE

  • This nanny state bullshit is just retarded. Almost as retarded as people who vape for any other reason than quitting cigarettes. Also, claiming flavored juice is marketing to kids is just as retarded. By that logic flavored alcohol should be banned as well. People in general are so stupid.
