All vape tricks can be learned.”
This is somewhat of a tricky question to answer, because of how it is worded.
s vaping "safe" for minors? Vaping is just as "safe" for minors as it is for anyone else. Whether you're 16 or 36, it's about the same. So instead of focusing on age for a moment, let's focus on the safety aspect.
I've read a number of answers to questions regarding the health & safety concerns related to vaping. But, for the sake of this answer, let's look at a research paper detailing the "safety" of e-cigarettes. For a more in-depth look at the paper this quote is taken from, click the link in the name of the publisher. Tobacco Control, an international peer-reviewed journal for health professionals. We found that the e-cigarette vapours contained some toxic substances. The levels of the toxicants were 9–450 times lower than in cigarette smoke and were, in many cases, comparable with trace amounts found in the reference product. Our findings are consistent with the idea that substituting tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants.I want to point out a couple key items in this quote. First, "The levels of the toxicants were 9-450 times lower than in cigarette smoke..."
This tells us two things: e-cigarettes are safer than tobacco, and e-cigarettes still contain possibly toxic material. Next, "...substituting tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco specific toxicants." Taking both of these items into consideration, we see that vaping is intended as a harm-reduction strategy for those who already smoke tobacco. That is not to say that vaping is 100% safe & risk-free; there are very few truly "risk-free" activities in life. The point that needs to be made is that e-cigarettes are magnitudes safer than traditional cigarettes.
All of that aside, the question that I feel needs to be answered is, "Is vaping okay for minors," not is it safe. But the bottom line is:
vaping is intended for adults who are currently smokers. This is harm-reduction, not a fun Sunday evening activity for the family. In no way, shape, or form should anyone under the age of legal maturity be allowed to purchase, own, or use an e-cigarette or vaporizer.
In many places, there is a legal ban on the underage sale of vaping equipment or eliquid to minors. This is a law that I fully support. Just as you must be 18 years of age in the United States of America to purchase cigarettes, you must be the same age to purchase a vaporizer. So, is vaping "safe" for minors? It's safer than cigarettes, but does have its own risks. Is vaping "okay" for minors? Absolutely not.
