The nicotine addiction industry has a long done the best they can to implement what they know works, limited only by regulations and settlements: get kids hooked on your drug early by marketing in ways most effective for that target population and you can replace all those customers you lose to early death. For cigarettes controls that worked to help reduce children getting addicted included regulations that controlled those marketing practices. What the industry has been largely restricted from doing with cigarettes they are pulling back out of the playbook for vaping.
Oh, come on. I sound like the NRA because I like vaping vanilla strawberry and don't want it banned? Yes, kids like candy but so do adults. Would you like a ban on fruit flavored alcohol? Is that a bad analogy for some reason?
