Someone quits smoking cigarettes and chooses to vape and your criticize whether it's healthier or not? Has to be some of the most idiotic thinking and comments I've seen in a long time. Lol thanks. I needed a good laugh.

That was a most helpful observation, Matthew N. I know I feel much smarter after reading your well thought out response.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Ok, Matthew, don't get your undies in a bundle here. You can vape all you want, it's your choice. But I do agree that vaping is probably a less harmful habit than smoking, so don't go jumping to contusions. Would you agree that the jury is still out on the effects of vaping? Enlighten us if you can.

I was just trying to say that vaping is not a healthier option to smoking. Most people who ban smoking, ban vaping. Just because the smoke coming off the vape smells good, doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

My thoughts exactly packrat. Why so many people getting hurt feelings around here? Jeez. What happened to the days of being able to have a discussion that although we may disagree, we can discuss it in a respectful way without feeling attacked over something as stupid as somebody basically asking if vaping is really a healthier alternative. Popcorn lung is something I've heard affects those that vape.

Exactly. diacetyl is a chemical found in the E-juice. When inhaled, diacetyl causes bronchiolitis obliterans - more commonly referred to as "popcorn lung" - a scarring of the tiny air sacs in the lungs resulting in the thickening and narrowing of the airways.

Sadly, my friend Joe passed away early this morning. He lasted a lot longer than they thought. One tough nut. He drove truck, had a CDL and had the trucker's work ethic.

R.I.P. my friend!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Sorry about your good friend. Life here is just the blink of an eye. We’ll all get together again very soon in a much greater place.
