FUCK OFF

Happy Saturday lads.

There aren’t many people that I truly hate. These guys — fuckheads from San Francisco, Adam Bowen and James Monsees, took a product that was reviled for ruining lives and causing cancer and turned it into something cool — by targeting kids with a chic device that spit out flavored tobacco. The end result, a brand new generation of kids are addicted to nicotine. Upwards of 80% of high schoolers have vaped, and 50% of middle schoolers. My kids tell me that numbers seem legit and I believe them.

But they’re sorry — so please pardon them.

Juul CEO Kevin Burns said he would tell parents whose children are addicted to Juul’s e-cigarettes, “I’m sorry.”

Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb blames a teen vaping “epidemic” on Juul.

CNBC investigates the e-cigarette debate in a documentary called “Vaporized: America’s E-cigarette Addiction.”

Juul is 35% owned by Altria and now scheming to raise $10b, mostly overseas. Present valuation is upwards of $45 billion. Out goes big tobacco — in comes BIG VAPE. All of the doctors say vaping is SAFU, sponsored of course by BIG VAPE. This is like the 1950s with those commercials showing the preferred cigarettes for Doctors.

We won’t know the health affects until 10-20 years from now. Does it cause heart disease, cancer, and other debilitating ailments? STAY TUNED!

But they’re sorry.

    I’d consider vaping if they come out w/ Rocky Road ice cream flavor.

    In DC Juul runs commercials on the news radio station telling how responsible they are and how the product is for adults i.e. Congress you don’t need to be concerned.

    On the same radio dial, on the stations programming to young people, Juul runs commercials promoting the product to teenagers, with all the current lingo and language of teens.

    I’m supposed to Fly into LaGuardia tomorrow, train over to Grand Central, and then take the metro North. Now I find out there’s fucking power issues in Manhattan. Will anything bad happen to me?

    Big proponent of free market capitalism, but these cocksuckers who are praying on our kids, I’d line them up in Times Square and shoot the MOFOs
