Should Liquid Nicotine For E-Cigarettes Have Child Safety Packaging?

Argument in favor

Requiring liquid nicotine to be in child safety packaging is not only relatively cheap to implement, but will protect children from accidental poisonings.

They should have the same packaging as all other drugs and chemicals. This isn't demonizing them, it is just applying the same rules to them as everyone else.

Child safety packaging for industries that are regulating and distributing cigarettes should be a necessity to prioritize the internal health circumstances of consumers. The consumer has the freedoms to retain narrative information on on their urgency of what product they wish to purchase. Although the opposing argument may be that the federal legislation of lawmakers shall not incorporate themselves in the private sector of industrial corporations distributing electrical cigarettes it behooves the federal executive branch to take action if necessary. The private sector is the philosophy in America of independent entrepreneurship to construct and regulate an innovative product you wish. However, on this planet there is a need for the rule of law of ensuring the safety of consumers as well. There would be a Plethora of lawsuits that will demonize the reputational status of these industrials corporations if child packaging safety was not implemented. Yes! You are absolutely correct! Some of the youngsters may not have the integrity and diligence to want to read such labels. Although on the behalf of the industrial private sector it would be an implementation of caution to notify consumers that letting such product in the hands of children can be very precarious. As stated in the significance of this proposal: This bill would require the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to create a rule to mandate child safety packaging on liquid nicotine containers. For all you non-smokers out there, liquid nicotine is the stuff in e-cigarettes. The packaging would be designed to be hard to open for children under five years old — thereby protecting them exposure. Additionally: The American Association of Poison Control Centers has reported an increase in exposure to e-cigarette devices and liquid nicotine, with about half of the nearly 4,000 incidents in 2014 effecting children. That's a absurd manner. 4,000 children have been threatened due to the contingency of these electronic cigarettes. Such bright implementations to promote packaging and labels that notifies the consumers on the precarious justifications if these products were to reach children would be a recipe for less incidents to occur (SAVING PRECIOUS LIVES) The industry is developing innovative products for more supply and demand to regulate marketing of various products to result in a sky rocketing profit. Although the consumer must come first in the ideological beliefs of the nature of the private sector and matters pertaining to entrepreneurial growth. I see a thriving implementations such as this proposal to resulting consumer knowledge to be Greatly enhanced about the products they are purchasing from industrial distributors, AND YOU SHOULD AS WELL IF YOU ARE A CARING PATRIOT. Thank you for your time

It won't make much difference, but at least labeling of such a product will put the safety onus on the consumer and not on the manufacturer.

Argument opposed

People with liquid nicotine for e-cigarettes should be more careful about storing it in a safe place. That would solve the problem without having to involve Congress.

We need to start creating people that are responsible for their actions without always making a law and thinking that placing the burden on business and thinking the problem is now solved.

Packaging does not resolve the problem. Parents are the problem whether it be drugs or other unsafe items.

Let PARENTS teach their children what is good and bad for them. The government is not our nanny.

    This is almost like saying have a recall on Tide Pods because kids mistake them for candy. If people actually WATCHED their kids and not leave things out that they might consume or otherwise harm themselves with, then we wouldn't need this kind of bill. Blame the parents, not the product.

    It is always better to be safe than sorry. This could possibly save a life if put into effect. I can see the liquid nicotine being seen as some sort of drink that a child would want to try. Also, this is low costing and easy to apply.

    This just makes sense. Liquid nicotine is dangerous, and children should be safeguarded from this poison.

    While i understand the nay opinion this to me is a simple extension of why we have child proof lighters and medicine bottles. Not everyone is responsible and people make mistakes now and again this could help prevent a tragedy.

    If almost everything else has impossible to open packages then I'd say liquid nicotine should probably have child safe packages

    Um, how is this an argument? Just put it in child-safe containers. It's literally pennies compared to the inevitable lawsuit when a child does get into one of these canisters and gets seriously hurt

    I cannot confidently vote yes on this bill without empirical evidence and data of how many children per year were effected by this. Many bottles are already child-proof. So there is no need to spend the extra money.
