Should vapers just smoke cigarettes?

Making time for vaping in a safe place should demonstrate the pointlessness of banning vaping when vapers can pretty much vape anywhere stealthily or not so stealthily. They don't actually have to stand outside with the smokers.

Twenty vapers in a pub stealth vaping, or a thousand at a venue, or the whole damn audience in a stadium, would hardly be noticed. Stealth is also possible on cigalikes. Unless everyone was strip searched before entry, how would the vaping police know?

But many vapers disapprove of hiding vaping or even using vapourless e liquid on principle because it is not the vapour that is dangerous to other people's health so vaping cannot be banned on health grounds and therefore, shouldn't be. And vaping is very much safer than smoking cigarettes.

The trouble with the vaping bans is the smoking bans instigated by a bunch of righteous groups making a living through the profitable idea of Tobacco Control, taxes on tobacco, and Nicotine Replacement products. 

Article 20 of the Tobacco Control Directive will end the Golden Age of Vaping.  Vapers view it as an evil, mis-thought example of the corrupt Tobacco Control/Pharmaceutical alliance.

Quote - 
"a) nicotine-containing liquid is only placed on the market in dedicated refill containers not exceeding a volume of 10 ml, in disposable electronic cigarettes or in single use cartridges and that the cartridges or tanks do not exceed a volume of 2 ml;
b) the nicotine-containing liquid does not contain nicotine in excess of 20 mg/ml;" (and more)

But that is not ENOUGH.

The World Health Organisation, in secret, behind closed doors, without consultation, are plotting a way to make electronic cigarettes, MORE PROFITABLE! What a surprise! Read Clive Bates here.

Quote - "I have now obtained a copy of the leaked document the FT refers to.  This document is the  WHO FCTC Bureau minutes from November 2013 and it reveals a great deal about this remote and unaccountable organisation.  It shows how it is planning to use the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to apply the same sort of restrictions to non-combustible nicotine products like e-cigarettes that are applied to the far more dangerous smoking products."

Vaping is going to be TAXED like tobacco products are, controlled as if they were tobacco. Who would have thought? 

Well, watching the way  electronic cigarettes have been misrepresented, lied about, legislated against  and generally demonised by the anti tobacco crowd, I would presume that is the way it happened about smoking tobacco and smokers. Should we actually believe a word we are told about any of it?

Should vaping be taxed to the same amount of theft that Governments receive now from tobacco, and, having been exposed for the "remote and unaccountable organisation" they are by Clive Bates, ex leader of ASH UK, should we wonder if anything the Tobacco Control Industry do is honest or true?

Vapers may as well just smoke cigarettes - it might end up cheaper than vaping, and also less dangerous than we have been led to believe by those who can obviously twist information, lie and cheat concerning just about everything and probably always have.
