    It will be interesting to see how workplaces and the Federal government handle people vaping at work and public spaces. It isn't smoking, so it's not illegal. And people mimic other people, so sales will increase because of the exposure to the act.
    I'm long on LO and Mo.

    Those machines I'm told are extremely addictive.
