Not yet. I'd push vaping hard as an alternative to smoking until that 14% drops to something like 5% maybe even lower. That's about the point where cigarettes would stop being a valued retail product, and the manufacturers would be hard pressed to fight the ban.

At which point, we can turn our attention to the scourge of vaping.
