John Doe is an 18-year-old resident, Colorado. He’s active in his community and volunteers through the local public library, he’s a genuinely nice guy, and he’s a smoker. A few months ago, John Doe decided that he wanted to minimize his health risks from smoking cigarettes, so he switched to a new alternative: an e-cigarette. Electronic cigarettes contain no tobacco, and vaporize a vegetable glycerol fluid that contains nicotine, mimicking the feeling of smoking a burn cigarette without the tar, dangerous gases, and unpleasant smell (Block). In most states, smokers can “vape” in public places with their e-cigarettes, receiving the nicotine of a burn cigarette without complaint from others. Heavy smokers find that they can use e-cigarettes to gradually decrease nicotine and many use it as a gateway to quit smoking. Yet in the absence of regulation, sale of e-cigarettes to minors is only prohibited in twelve states (Lopes), and this is a definite problem. Adolescents may see vaping as a cool new thing to do and become addicted to nicotine. The lack of regulation in the e-cigarette industry especially contributes to this, as companies create appealing advertisements displaying a variety of new flavors. Furthermore, without Food and Drug Administration (FDA) screening, e-cigarette ingredients are unregulated and this could lead to unsafe or downright harmful products.

As the birds begin their songs; a group of school girls takes a stroll through the park led by their teacher. They begin their walk greeting everyone they see with a smile. As they sit on an open grassy area, filled with plenty of crunchy leaves. They take a moment to observe all that is happening in the park. The girls see old men sitting at chess tables about to begin their game, children piling up dead leaves and hurling themselves in the piles, and couples preparing lovely morning picnics. After a while, one girl gets a whiff of something peculiar from the right side of the school group. Turning to the side, the class spots a middle-aged business woman who has decided that five feet downwind from a group of young girls was the right
