I don’t see what the big deal is. Vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking.
Sean’s target demographic isn’t children. His shows target adults, often older adults, and so the advertising also targets adults. Adults smokers should be made aware of healthier alternatives to smoking.
Again, I don’t see what the problem is. His radio show is aimed at an older demographic. Juul is a product which is a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. Are cigarette smokers such a second class citizen that even healthier alternatives to smoking can’t be advertised to them?
Obviously we shouldn’t be advertising a nicotine product to children, but Sean’s show isn’t a children’s show. 66% of Hannity’s audience is over the age of 50.
Oh, I get that. I’ve heard him on his show talking about how it’s healthier than smoking, and I have no problem with that. Also don’t have a problem with juul advertising on his show.
But him making an ad for juul, with the warning of it containing an addictive drug, while it doesn’t bother me, is something that will bother many of his fans. People who will seek out this forum to make an account just to ask him not to do it.
It’s an interesting choice for him to have made, that’s all I was really commenting on.
I am still awaiting for all the usual suspects who posted on the old forum that Obama’s nicotine addition was a sign of a weak character to be consistent and make similar comments about Hannity having the same weakness of character.
And before anyone runs off to the mods to accuse me of COH, read carefully what I said. I did not accuse Hannity of being of weak character just that I expect consistency from those who accused Obama of it.
When Rachael Maddow was mixing drinks on her show every Friday night and nobody seemed to care. Sean Hannity vapes and it’s a major issue? Give me a break.
Vaping is healthier than smoking. Everyone who enjoys a nicotine break should switch to vaping. I don’t consume anymore, but sometimes I think about how much I would enjoy the habit again. I would vape though. My days of smoking Reds is over.
Only time I ever had pneumonia was in Basic Training in Missouri. It’s not fun.
I’m of the opinion that nicotine isn’t the worst thing in the world for an adult to consume. It’s probably healthier to abstain altogether, just like how it’s better to abstain from caffeine (I managed to pull this off… at last during work days. I indulge on the weekends).
It’s my opinion though that if you’re going to use nicotine you should choose a vaping product for health reasons.
