Controversial Short Response

The following is taken from, a nonpartisan site that discusses and provides context for controversial issues. Please take a side on the issue – do not try to argue both sides equally – in a short, 2-3 paragraph response. A full 5+ paragraph essay is not expected or required. You may write in first person (“I”) if you desire.
Responses will be graded as complete or incomplete; they will not receive a full letter grade or comments. Note that an “incomplete” may be assigned even if a response is submitted, if that material is deemed to be too short, too vague, or too off topic to count as a successful response.  Please note the due date!
Vaping & E-Cigarettes
Nearly 11 million American adults use e-cigarettes, more than half of whom are under age 35. One in five high school students use e-cigarettes to vape nicotine.  E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid into an aerosol vapor for inhalation.  The liquids often contain nicotine (which is derived from tobacco) and flavorings such as mint, mango, or tobacco. Vaping is the act of using e-cigarettes, which were first introduced in the United States around 2006. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has regulated e-cigarettes as a tobacco product since 2016. On Sep. 11, 2019, the Trump administration announced plans to have the FDA end sales of non-tobacco e-cigarette flavors such as mint or menthol in response to concerns over teen vaping. 
The JUUL brand of e-cigarettes, a vaporizer shaped like a USB drive, launched in 2015 and has since captured nearly 75 percent of the market, becoming so popular that vaping is often referred to as “juuling.” Sales of e-cigarettes are projected to reach $9 billion in 2019. 
Is vaping the solution to a major public health problem caused by traditional cigarettes and a safe way to encourage adults to quit smoking? Or are e-cigarettes potentially explosive devices that addict kids to nicotine and cause serious health problems?
