Considering there is no definitive proof that vapes cause cancer, there is overwhelming evidence that cigarettes are responsible for a whole array of cancers and diseases, and I see teenagers and young adults smoking cigarettes all around Boston (even elite college kids), allowing Juul and other vapes to advertise and sell at retail seems like a worthwhile and beneficial option for society.

The tobacco industry was able to hold off the "definitive proof" - which they were entirely aware of internally - for decades.

It seems quite likely that inhaling vaporized chemicals multiple times a day will have some health impacts. As with tobacco, the evidence will take a long while to accumulate, and the industry is likely to obfuscate as long as possible.
