I have no problem with the Co-op carrying CBD oil to be taken orally or used topically. But for the health and wellness stores to sell vape pens in any form –– on display at the counter by the register, no less –– could inadvertently be interpreted as condoning vaping in general.
I realize this is not the Co-op’s intention, but one can see how it could look that way. And while vaping may be less harmful than smoking, it’s certainly addictive, and it may be quite harmful; it’s too early to know for sure.
I would recommend that the Co-op not take the risk of appearing to support vaping and remove the vape pens from the health and wellness stores.
