Walmart says it will stop selling electronic cigarettes at its namesake stores and Sam's Clubs following a string illnesses and deaths related to vaping.
The nation's largest retailer said Friday that it will complete its exit from e-cigarettes after selling through current inventory. It cited growing federal, state and local regulatory complexity regarding vaping products.

But not the real ones.......................
Propaganda works. 3 weeks of propaganda and everyone is out of their minds.
This is a black and dark time for the Republic - we may not survive.
Can you say “KNEE JERK”?
Most of the news I’ve seen is blaming unregulated, no-brand, pirate, street THC vaping products. Has any of this been attached to regulated products?
I quit the real thing 20 years ago when I was a 40 year smoker. I had double pneumonia and almost died.. Quitting was still the toughest thing I have ever done. I had cat scan and MRI this year for a different thing and my lungs are clear. If these things get you off of cigarettes I’m all for them.
Ban the e-cigs!
Torch the libraries!
Kill the jews!
Fads: shaping history for five millennia, give or take.
I have whiplash from how fast these things came out of nowhere to how fast they’re getting ban hammered.
10-4 on that good buddy..! :(
Serious question... are these things taxed like cigarettes and cigars? The quantities are obviously different. Some kind of cartridge of nicotine liquid isn’t as easy to quantify as “per cigar” or “per 20 cigarettes,” etc.
The cynic in me might wonder whether this panic is the result of local, state and federal governments losing tax revenue on traditional tobacco products.
Black market will surge.
Many FReepers here have quit with ecigs, including myself after 30 years.
Of course, WalMart virtue signaling this issue right after their doing the same with firearms doesn’t seem to be a problem with people who can only feel good about themselves by making others miserable.
Gee I wonder why back in the 1600’s boats were financed to trek to Virginia? I wonder HOW long humans have enjoyed the Tobacco plant...I wonder if anyone will ever tabulate the revenue generated by this plant and even the medicinal extractions and formulas that have been derived....I wonder If cigarette makers didn’t get sued to the hilt if the 52 states and (scumbag) lawyers would still exist....I wonder if states that tax a pack of 20 cigarettes 5-6 dollars will exist if tobacco was outlawed? I wonder what real tobacco unadulterated tastes like ? ( I do know this as I buy my tobacco by the pound Tax class L) I wonder what if the black market for cigarettes will ever abate?...tobacco is a commodity whereas E-cigarettes are liquid concoctions that emit unknown complex carcinogins and raw untouched air dried pipe tobacco can be very enjoyable . I use a machine to produce my own cigarettes with this “pipe” tobacco and not only is it dirt cheap (about.75-.90 a day , I smoke about 10-15 cigs a day) I have found the flavor is very enjoyable and now if I even taste a store bought smoke I find them to be nasty and flavorless...Tobacco is not the problem ADULTERATED and chemically tweaked tobacco is.
Soon Walmart will be an over-sized quickie mart....selling only eggs, milk and lottery scratch offs.
But you'll be able to get a Law Degree there, so there's that.
We live in Clown World.
Excerpt from the CDC: Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year.
More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke).
Good, end all tobacco and fake tobacco sales.
