Also, i don't think this amount of gear is worth 12 mio THB.

That is nowhere near 400k USD worth of vape gear in the pictures...

480,000 deaths per year attributed to smoking cigarettes v "dozens"   :coffee1:

 

That's "dozens" of new types of lung illnesses caused by vaping that will kill/damage hundreds of thousands with continued use. But hey it's ok with me. Inhale all the nicotine you want as long as I don't have to get second hand smoke /vapors. Does anyone really think that breathing in as much nicotine as a regular cigarette simply not as smoke and not containing the paper and  other stuff that is in a reguar cigatette is less harmful. The main cause of the cancers is nicotine, makes no difference how you get it into your lungs--vapor or smoke. Plus with the flavored nicotine more young people are using and thinking it safe are inhaling larger quantity of the nicotine.

E-cigarette Basics

E-cigarettes are devices that heat a liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales. The liquid usually has nicotine and flavoring in it, and other additives. The nicotine in e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes is addictive. E-cigarettes are considered tobacco products because most of them contain nicotine, which comes from tobacco.

Besides nicotine, e-cigarettes can contain harmful and potentially harmful ingredients, including:

  • ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs
  • flavorants such as diacetyl, a chemical linked to serious lung disease
  • volatile organic compounds
  • heavy metals, such as nickel, tin, and lead
