Republicans have all been run thru the Trumpmogrifier, so they bear little resemblance to the actual Republicans of any previous era.

The story so far:
a) It's not clear that vaping is an effective way to wean off nicotine, or even tobacco.
b) Unexplained acute respiratory debility and deaths are occurring, credibly attributed to vaping, in fairly significant numbers.

So the core assertion of this thread, that Vaping Saves Lives has not been reasonably established.

I await further data. But would in the meantime counsel people desiring to get off tobacco to stick with traditional nicotine gum or patches along with peer support.
