Holy shit, more Florida news?

    My best friend and I started calling them douche flutes and whenever we see somebody sucking on one we joke they’re calling all of their douche friends like forest animals in a princess movie.

      Douche flute. That’s hysterical. I’d like to start using it but about 1/2 my employees toke on them and I don’t provide safe places here at the office so that could wind up being a mess.

      Just shows the sheep will jump on any band wagon. I want to slap the shit out of people who do this. It looks retarded and funny thing is no one knows the long term effects. I like that douche flute, I am gonna steal that one.

    My son gave up the Marlboro red box for a vape something, I call it steaming, stinky stuff that I doubt is any safer than smoking.

      I’d guess it’s better than inhaling smoke and carbon monoxide, but maybe not a whole lot what with nicotine itself being a poison.

    I’ve heard kids/folks try to get all kinds of things in their vaping tools. Like in the “olden days” when folks would huff glue, paint, acetone, etc. That’s the first thing I thought of when I read a “vaping pen” exploded….

    I tried vaping because I do miss smoking (after 20 years no less). You can absolutely control the amount of nicotine they deliver. I had none in mine. I gave it up because it was a pain in the ass. I did notice I started coughing more so based on my own short experience, I’d say overall it is likely not any healthier than cigs.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
