From California Globe:

Steven Greenhut with the R Street Institute, has written extensively about the attempts – and successes – of government to control and even ban vaping. He writes: “R Street Institute is involved in the vaping battle because of our concern about ‘harm reduction.’ That’s the theory that government should not insist on abstinence (e.g., Prohibition-style policies) but should enable people to engage in safer alternatives. Engaging in risky sex, for instance, is, well, risky. But it’s out of bounds for government to arrest people for such behavior. It instead should encourage safer sex. I doubt a single San Franciscan would disagree with that statement.”
