Some people think that cigarettes are harmful, and that e-cigarettes are a “safer” choice for them. Should people smoke e-cigarettes thinking it is okay? In fact, they shouldn’t. Cigarettes are known to be the number one cause of the life-threatening sickness known as cancer. Since e-cigarettes are pretty harmful, they should be banned from being sold to anyone under eighteen. The chemical tobacco which is found in cigarettes, allows for lung cancer and death for people who smoke. So instead, people would smoke e-cigarettes thinking it is a better choice, when in fact, it isn’t and should be restricted for teenagers and children.
Electronic cigarettes should have age restrictions just like modern cigarettes for many reasonable reasons, like health, money, etc….E-cigarettes are known to be electronic cigarettes and not the natural ones. Unlike the normal cigarettes, e-cigarettes are electronic devices that contain a flavored chemical when vaped by the smoker. The main liquid ingredients used in e-cigarettes are propylene glycol, glycerin, water, nicotine, and flavorings. Some e-cigarettes don’t accommodate the liquid ingredient nicotine. These liquids are harmful and could have a big chance of harming an individual’s lungs. Since e-cigarettes are a life-threatening device to individuals they should be banned from underage people.
Some underage people would buy e-cigarettes to “relieve stress” thinking they’re doing good, but in fact they are harming themselves. Smoking e-cigarettes at a young age could allow for a person to get cancer and no one would want to get sick or die at such a young age. E-cigarettes shouldn’t be allowed or handled by anyone who is underage, because it will allow for the young adult to harm themselves and get cancer. The thought of thinking e-cigarettes are good is not right, in fact e-cigarettes are harmful and don’t relief stress.
It is important for the prohibition of electronic cigarettes from underage people. There are businesses that sell e-cigarettes for underage people just for the sake of their business, and wouldn’t care about the harm they are causing. The e-cigarette business had risen to a billion-dollar business until now. Teenagers aren’t always right about their decisions, and that’s why e-cigarettes must be prohibited for underage people. A teenager who is under eighteen could affect himself/herself by smoking an e-cigarette. They could harm their social life, education, and health, and because of these big effective reasons e-cigarettes shouldn’t be sold to underage people.
It may seem to some people that it is okay for teens to smoke when they’re underage. They think about it as a concept that 9helps them relieve stress and feel better. That kind of view is wrong and not healthy for anyone. Smoking could actually harm or kill a person. Businesses and drug addicted people support smoking, but keep in mind that these people don’t really care about anyone’s health. That’s why smoking should be restricted for people who are especially underage, even though many may think smoking is an okay habit.
E-cigarettes are harmful for a person and not in any way safer than normal cigarettes. That’s why we should ban them from under age people so that their health doesn’t get worse in any kind of way. The chemical inside them is responsible for lung cancer and for the common deaths that annually occur. That’s why no matter what we shouldn’t think that e-cigarettes are safer than normal cigarettes.
