Vaping was again a topic of discussion at a Centennial City Council meeting on Monday night, with one vaping shop owner recommending to the council that the city increase the age for purchasing vaping products be raised to 21.
A married couple who own a vaping shop at 5210 East Arapahoe Road in Centennial, spoke to the council about a possible flavor ban for vaping products. Sarah Walter and Shaune Walter, owner of the store, told the council that vaping flavored products has helped many people to get off of tobacco products.
Ron Castagna, of 5403 S. Idalia Way, told the council that there was a time a few years ago when it appeared that the smoking issue was being addressed. Now, however, vaping has “set things back,” he said.
In an interview, Cigarettes are “very carefully engineered” to produce addiction, Castagna said. He added that there are many children today who are addicted to vaping.
