i bet most people just toss them in the bin for landfill once they're dead. it's so wasteful.

Disagree, people should know better than buying it and hence it would be discontinued. Bans are always a slippery slope.
But people don't know better so either way we're doomed. No freedom or no air, neighter a life worth living. (And yes, quite far till disposable vapes are the threats to focus on).

They should be banned for import and people who use them should be fined heavily, or flogged or sent to jail or forced to to read off topic threads on ft forum.

let's get these folks off the stinkies first, as these ungodly things are SO popular with younger vapers and women now....I see these EVERYWHERE in my college town, at a rate much higher than cigarettes now, even!

Hopefully, usually a new lifestyle (vaping/ex-smoker) will result in a more "permanent" set-up - but as much as I hate these things personally, their simplicity tends to have a higher approval factor than more DIY units.

Fingers crossed.

Be realistic, what will joe public do with them when they're all used up...

Either bin them and they'll end up in landfill or they'll just be dumped as litter on the streets, both are really unacceptable.....Should be banned.

I am realistic. Next time they ban something else that you care for.

Better to change the approach, landfills are so 80s.

Here batteries and items with concealed batteries are recycled as such.
Paper, plastic, and metals are sorted. As well as organic materials are composted or fermented (for gas extraction).
The rest is burned to create heating for water and houses.
(always more to be done of course)

Littering has also been deemed illegal and gives a hefty fine.


Your eagerness for a ban will rather result in years of legal mumbo-jumbo with big tobacco, as I would guess they are the worst when it comes to single-use vapes.

The way forward is slow but it's based on the foundation. Work towards a cessation of landfills and littering. And a durable approach to waste. Pretty much all waste holds value. Extracting that value for less gives profit.

zarck sounds like you are from a very progressive area. It's tough because with your area it sounds like they handle waste much better then they do in the US, for the most part.

I hope people don't use them here, but I think your right about the banning of things being a bad answer too.

So I am at a loss, I was so onboard with the first post.

Dead Rabbit V3 doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

Unfortunately, this is the direction many companies are going...Many companies that switched to vape gear manufacturing 6/7 years ago have gone on to the next gadget...puzzle boxes, fidget spinners, and dildoes.

They can shove those gadgets where they're intended, lol

Is that a jab intended for me? Don't be cute with it.

...And just WHY would that be specifically about you? You may be referring to your meltdown on that product thread, sure, but you were never on topic, and came only to make personal attacks.

You were there upset about my rejection of you previously, and that new guy was angry because I think taking Ivermectin is foolish, and said as much to Yoshy, who IS an idiot(don't care what ANYONE thinks on that topic - he's foolish, biased, and potentially dangerous to the uninitiated.)

Please try to stay on topic, relatively, and move on. I have done nothing you yourself haven't done - except I come here with the intention of helping others. (not stalking)

Please leave this issue alone. It's over. Thank You!
