Why of course. Legalize weed, make children wear masks, make landlords provide free housing. It's a liberal world and Columbia has to be a leader. What else can Columbia mess up? This is satire for those that are unable to understand.

We have know for many decades that it was never the nicotine that was harmful, it was the smoke from burning tobacco. Banning flavors make vastly safer vaping less attractive for smokers to switch to. Other than puritanical ideals there is no scientific reason to ban vape flavors for adults.

Adults use these products in far greater numbers than teens. What other Adult product faces a similar ludicrous potential ban?

Vaping is saving millions of adult lives. The claims against vaping are not true. None of them. There is NO youth epidemic, vaping is less harmful than the air in large cities and is far less dependence-forming than smoking, no more than caffeine in your coffee.

Why limit choices for adults trying to stop smoking? It's a ridiculous proposal. It's illegal for minors to drink, but I can sure as hell buy birthday cake flavored vodka. I don't hear anyone complaining about that, nor should I.

our city government needs to stay out of the business of trying to regulate every aspect of our lives. Crime is high now. Concentrate on that. If there is a law in place prohibiting sales to minors, enforce that. You can't legislate everything.

Because flavors are an essential appeal to smokers to help switch. Use by never smokers is negligible so banning flavors will only do harm

I work in a vape shop part time. We card everyone. People already complain about others bot having jobs. Yeah, makes sense. Get rid of this industry so more are out of work. Smdh.

It's very very simple. if you ban flavored vapes then more people will smoke cigarettes. That would be what is called a non-optimal situation.

These products help people stop smoking. They are illegal to sell to kids. Enforce the law. Don't create black markets!

I have a wild thought. How about enforcing the existing laws and not allow the product be sold to minors?

Your taking away the rights of and punishing adults in a vain attempt to stop kids from vaping under a misguided excuse. Kids unfortunately will find a way. Adults have the right! Punish the sellers! Stop taking away the rights of adults under the guide of "the children"

The action(s) of underage kids obtaining products illegally cannot justify any restrictions, taxes, or bans on adult rights, choices.

I feel we have enough people driving under the influence, now we'll have a whole lot more. People in this City don't follow traffic laws anyway, so we'll either have to enforce traffic laws, or get ready for a whole lot of wrecks.
