There is a bill that may shut down all e-cigarette and other alternative websites to protect the kids. Just one flaw in the logic…
If you haven’t heard, there is a bill being rammed through by a fellow named Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento) who wants to shut down the entire e-cigarette e-commerce that is thriving in California. This would mean less jobs created, less money coming into our cash strapped state, and more unnecessary red tape. This would also mean more taxes and less free market competition for the supplies people have relied as an alternative option to traditional tobacco. In other words California would be removed from an new an emerging industry that is creating new jobs, generating revenue and new opportunities for thousands entrepreneurs and innovators.
His argument relies on “its all about the kids” he assuming kids are getting on the internet, taking out their credit/debit cards and stocking up on candy eliquids and $60 dollar setups because its so much better to suck really expensive and complicated flavored air than to just walk down to the gas station and get a .99 cent Snickers bar.
Assuming this pseudo argument is true there is just one flaw in his entire logic that many people have overlooked. The Postal Service, FedEx and UPS all over age verification upon delivery with signature. Even the liquor store doesn’t ask for a signature when you buy a pack of smokes. To some degree this supersedes his entire logic for the bill in the first place.
