So you addicts are vaping highly addictive nicotine salts now:

The form of nicotine more common in other vapes — as well as in cigars and pipe tobacco — is freebase nicotine, which can stick to a smoker’s upper respiratory tract and make them cough. Big Tobacco discovered decades ago that freebase nicotine makes puffing on a cigar much harsher than inhaling cigarette smoke. And that’s probably why salts products can afford to pack a bigger dose of nicotine, according to David Peyton, a chemistry professor at Portland State University. “You can have a less harsh vape than you can with freebase with the same nicotine content,” he says. “Combine that with the addiction that will follow with such a high dose of nicotine.”

nicotine salts are the lesser problem. here inventors do sell bath salts containing psychoactive substances which are not illegal yet. some people die of overdose. mainly low income folks do experiment with the new stuff. one solution would be to legalize a plant known for its effects for 4000 years and its effects are beneficial instead of lethal.
