    purplebox vapours Comments in The Sunday Times on TA Decision To Ban Vaping

    purplebox vapours Comments in The Sunday Times on TA Decision To Ban Vaping

    by Steve Barrett

    This weekend Sunday Times journalist Siobhan Maguire wrote a very interesting and informative piece on the reaction of the vaping community to the decision by Irish Transport Authorities, Irish Rail and Bus Eireann, to ban vaping in stations and on public transport. In the article Siobhan explores the myths and fears behind vaping that may have led to complaints by travellers and the blanket decision by transport bosses. Is ignorance simply overruling the most recent findings that the vapour is harmless and inhaling e-liquid, whether it contains nicotine or not, is an adult decision that should be left to the individual?
