The use of e-cigarettes and hookah pens should be banned from underage citizens due to the lack of adulthood they still have not experinced yet.

Pro

I don't see how adulthood has anything to do with it. These simulations of cigarettes can be a good replacement for those who are addicted to tabacco.

"The primary therapeutic use of nicotine is in treating nicotine dependence in order to eliminate smoking with the damage it does to health. Controlled levels of nicotine are given to patients through gums, dermal patches, lozenges, electronic/substitute cigarettes or nasal sprays in an effort to wean them off their dependence.
Studies have found that these therapies increase the chance of success of quitting by 50 to 70%, Though reductions in the population as a whole has not been demonstrated." http://en.wikipedia.org...

Hookah pens contains far less to no nicotine. http://www.ireachcontent.com... http://www.zamnesia.com...

The simple fact that teens who are underage and using tobacco products/products that involve tobacco dependence speaks for itself.

It is against the law in some states to use these as a minor.

Pro

They involve tobacco dependence by trying to treat it with a lesser dosage, if we're consistent with the point of therapeutic value I made.

We are not debating if it is legal or not, so that's off the point.

Hookah pens can contain no harmful ingredients such as nicotine.

E-cigarettes and hookah pens can be used therapeutically, so I'm for it in that manner, and I'm for hookah pens that do not contain ingredients such as nicotine and tar etc. in any manner.

To clarify, I am not for the sale of E-Cigarettes to minors or any hookah pens with harmful ingredients like nicotine unless it is regulated therapy. I may put this info in the debate if I feel proper.
