MANILA, October 27 - A group of protesters calling themselves "Alakbayan Party" gathered near Malacañang to protest a nationwide VAPE BAN.
The group leader, Benedicto Asuncion said that the an incident in Rodriguez, Rizal where a 13 year old student named Arthur Cruz died after a 250 peso vape exploded in his face, sparked their willingness to protest to the president to mandate a nationwide Vape Ban.
"Kung iba-ban nila ang yosi, dapat ay isama na rin nila ang vape na 'yan na napaka-delikado at kung saan saang bangketa lang nabibili ng mga bata!"
Asuncion also said that the tube type vape is also used for other vices like Marijuana and Methamphetamine.
However, a professional Vape shop owner Ian Nelson said that "Vape is safe if you buy the authentic kind. Most of the children who vapes are bandwagonist whose parents are too busy to watch what they are doing. Most of them but counterfeit vapes that causes a bad reputation for people who smoke vape to lessen their cigarette fix"
The group said that they will keep protesting and might become violent if left unheard.
