You Will Die If You Vape While Watching Impeachment Porn

Reason editors discuss vaping deaths, the impeachment inquiry, and the resurgent conservative war on porn.

As the nation gets more paranoid about vaping, we bring in e-cigarette expert Jacob Sullum to talk us down. Sullum digs into the real risks of vaping versus smoking, what teens who like cotton candy have to do with the recent deaths associated with vaping, and whether you should toss those vape cartridges you have sitting around.

He joins the usual Reason Roundtable crew of Nick GillespieKatherine Mangu-Ward, and Peter Suderman for an in-depth chat about tainted THC, flavored nicotine, and more. We also sprint through this weekend's impeachment, corruption, and treason-accusation news (which is now breaking at a faster rate than we can podcast about it), and we round out our chat with an inquiry into why banning porn is so hot again on the right. Reason editors also have some thoughts about Joker and Frederick Douglass. (Because of course we do.)
