Regulations should be for protecting people, not corporations
I was wanting to respond to the man against regulating e-cigs.
The e-cig is still relative to cigarettes, hence the name e-cig. We cant have candy or devices that resemble drugs or other age-related products. Should we allow a flavored, non-alcoholic beer be consumed by minors? What about illegal drug lookalikes? Should we allow white flavored powdered sugar straws to be snorted? How about the anti-regulation myth? How about deregulating the housing market? Do away with the minimum housing ordinance so poor people can afford to live outside the federal housing.
The regulators were meant to help the people of America. They have evolved into helping corporations. We need to strip the regulators and start over, with regular Americans running them. I’ll leave with that.
