OUR VIEW: Let's Hope FDA Rule Shuts Down Vaping Stores In Boca

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A new rule to be implemented by the Food and Drug Administration could end the so-called “Vaping” industry once and for all.

We believe this is a great thing. 

Vaping stores, popping up throughout South Florida and Boca Raton, are nothing more than fronts for selling a disgusting smoking product under the guise that it’s safer than smoking.

One of the latest offenders is directly across the street from Loggers Run Middle School in West Boca — just feet from a Dunkin Donuts expected to open in the next few months. 

While Vaping is not illegal at the moment, the placement of the store — in an area rich with kids — seems to be far from coincidental. It is also far from uncommon to see people “Vaping” inside enclosed Boca-area facilities — like Town Center Mall.

Under the new FDA rule, the government must approve all tobacco products that became available after 2007. It prohibits sale of such items to anyone under 18. Pro-Vaping activists say the rules are unfair and could mark the end of the industry. 

We hope it does.
