Vaping allows too large a dose

I have smoked pot for 45 years. I have smoked cigarettes on and off for the same period. I was standing in a smoke circle one day and was passed an electronic device you suck on. The guy across from me got a devilish look on his face and right away knew I had taken too much.

I stopped, coughed like crazy and had to settle down over the next ten minutes because I didn’t know I was smoking too much. I have seen cars looking like they were on fire because of all the vapor that people blow after sucking on a vape pen. At least when you smoke a joint or out of a pipe, or even take a drag off a cigarette. you have a built-in cough mechanism to prevent yourself from too much.

People are dying quicker because electronic devices give out huge dosages without you knowing it. None of it is good for you, but it is better to die slower.
