• Fear Mongering: The Media and Vaping

    As we all know, new things are often times overly scary for no good reason. As people we just typically fear the unknown. It’s totally understandable and perfectly natural, that being said, there is a point at which it becomes completely ridiculous. As of November 16th of 2015, that point has absolutely 100 percent been reached by the media when it comes to most major networks take on vaping. Now it’s not just vaping, fear mongering has become all the rage in today’s click bate driven radically overstated media world. No issue at all should be looked into deeper, instead one should just run screaming for the hills. We’re not special, everyone gets the bad end of the stick these days. That being said, vaping actually does seem to get the even worse gnawed off and the lit aflame end of the stick. Case and point, a CNN article by Sarah Ganim and Scott Zamost entitled ever so alarmingly “Vaping: The latest scourge in drug abuse.”

    To begin the article, they heavily imply that the existence of vaporizers is heavily affecting the number of people not only using but over dosing on synthetic drugs. Now, while I could almost understand one arguing that marijuana usage may have risen slightly due to the existence of vaporizers, even there its necessary to note that the vaporizers used for drugs and used for e Liquid and nicotine. The article then goes onto state that these vaporizers are showing up more and more in drug busts and are being used right in front of teachers and parents. Immediately they’re painting a picture of drug use by under aged children and rising amounts of it. Once again, this could be almost excusable (though still heavily exaggerated especially considering they’ve in no way shown that the existence of vaporizers causes more drug use) but they again fail to mention the vast differences between e Liquid and pens and pens used for drug use.

    Not only do they not mention this difference they heavily imply there isn’t one! Right after painting that picture of and under aged toxic drug culture fueled by vaporizers they go on to talking about e Liquid vaporizers in the beginning of the next paragraph. The casual reader would have absolutely no clue there is any difference between the two devices that are completely different animals. But, considering how the article ends, its probably safe to believe the writers don’t even know the difference themselves.

    That, right there, is exactly what we as a community are fighting against. Ignorance. Not only ignorance, but ignorance with an interest in fear. People feed on fear and the media knows it. Big tobacco is also a huge fan of this fear as it will keep smokers smoking rather than weaning them off with vaping. So we must aim to educate all of those around us. We need to show others that these vaporizers we use are helping us, not causing some sort of drug epidemic. Rather than hiding our vapes, giving into the pointless shame put on us by those around us, we need to start educating the public before its too late.

    Happy vaping!
