  1. JUST BRING THAT RIGHT OVER HERE……………………………………………

        1. I smoked for 21 years and quit last Oct via vaping, if you have any questions just ask Spike or me, I am still vaping but I feel way better, I can smell/taste again and its dirt cheap (if you make your own juice that is). There are many benefits from taking up vaping as a smoking cessation tool.

      1. did you know that they are criminalizing tobacco, I don’t think that they have any authority to do this anymore than they have the authority to tell me I cant buy a gun.

  2. Whew, I feel so relieved that they confiscated that stuff. Just think of all the people who could have gotten high without government permission! The horror! (/sarcasm)
