Welcome back everyone to another episode today we are covering the recent flavor ban relating to tobacco and nicotine products. The vote was in on Wednesday this week 12-0 in favor of the ban. Los Angeles Council members feel this would further protect young people from picking up products like vapes.
Sadly the truth is that young teens and older teens alike are likely to also enjoy the buzz of nicotine so I feel it goes deeper than just the flavors though they are the “hook” in a sense I do understand this part. I saw some stats on the use of these products for last year 2021 and it was something insane, 70% of highschool students admitted to using a product like a vape within the last 30 days, thats very high but I would like to know a bit more. Such as which major cities were in the test group, did every school in these cities participate. I ask a question of this type to understand where the 70% comes from.
In any case I don’t believe the problem will go away that easily but I have watched and observed, every major city across the state of California has a similar ban in place, LA was the last stop I suppose. Inevitable is the word I’d think of when considering all this we’ll have to wait and see if it’s infact effective or not.
However let me bring this up, if you grew up as a young teen in the 90’s or later think about why we smoked, they didn’t taste great, far from it and yet we had our reasons to do so same would be said with today some may stop using flavored tobacco products but ultimately in my opinion not enough to have justified a ban like this.
Next we have a part of todays episode covering a story behind the generous donations from cannabis company’s who have participated in programs to give free medical cannabis to those in need. As the price of cannabis for most recreational users may seem reasonable for those who use it for medicine it can be quite costly, for some as high as $1000 a month.
This program if qualified can delivery you medical cannabis monthly for free, yes completely free. As of now it seems the focus is on veterans in need but according to the article regular citizens have had access to it too.
