Vaping apps being zapped from Apple App Store

Apple has removed all vaping apps on the App Store that encouraged or facilitated the use of e-cigarette. Apple has been taking actions against such apps since June, and is now removing all 181 vaping-related apps from the store, citing the health-related issues.

Pre-2019 : Vaping good, highly recommended by 4 out of 5 doctors. NOW : Did we say it was good? You must be mistaken. What are you smoking?

Vaping apps have killed 42 people according to 9to5Mac. Did the iPhone start to emit deadly smoke?

I am not usually fan of censorship but vaping is becoming such a huge problem in American secondary students that I find myself supporting censorship in this case (to be clear I would support the same censorship on ads about smoking, drinking, and sexual activity).

I just thought of the perfect solution for vaping... An app that shows a vape stick. You put your lips to it and suck. You pull it away and it shows a selfie of you blowing a big blue cloud of smoke. You can tune it to show different colors, patterns, etc. This is a free IP giveaway. I won't sue you for royalties if you create the app.

I don’t vape I find smoking as a disgusting habit but even I feel this fear mongering has gone overboard.
