lmfao, your post is contradictory The government can't just decide to dictate to businesses that they can't sell an unregulated product to kids. They can't just say, "stop selling vapes to kids," for example, in the same manner they can't say, "stop selling chewing gum to kids." What they've been doing is asking companies to self-regulate but the companies are not doing so. The thread from these "government assholes" is to require the industry to adhere to regulations. They have to pull the product, mark it as a regulated product, and force it through government approval...like tobacco products. So how is this "government assholes" and not exactly what you are asking for (why don't they just stop selling it to kids)? They're literally trying to do the thing you're angry at them for not doing. More to the point, why would anyone be against regulating vaping to keep them out of the hands of children? We can't put this on parents' heads or school staff. We already had this debate about cigarettes over 30 years ago and resolved it.
