24. A 14 year old is vaping

and has to be getting their supply somewhere. Do you know that it's illegal to sell these products to children under 18 in most places? Even to buy online you have to be able to provide a valid ID. Maybe you should be checking to see who it is that is supplying your minor with these products?

As for candy flavors in vape juice, there are also candy flavors in liquor. Shall we ban liquor too? OHhhh, right we already tried that with not so wonderful results. There are also -somewhat just to be snarky here - candy flavors in candy and desserts, perhaps we should do something about that too because all that sugar is bad for children. Oh - wait a minute - that's why children have parents and guardians; to tell them no when appropriate.

Almost anything in this world can be abused. The answer is not to systematically ban everything that can conceivably be bad for us but to recognize these things and communicate the dangers to our young people and regulate the behavior associated with these things.

I am truly sorry that things are "a nightmare" at your house but I don't think that legislating about this and restricting a product that has truly helped millions around the world to quit smoking cigarettes is the answer.
