      I think it is morally wrong to use the likeness of somebody to sell a product without their explicit permission.

              Vaping isn't dangerous without additives like Vitamin E oil or unregulated flavor chemicals. Stop regurgitating propaganda. Nicotine is addictive yes, but in moderation has little to no harmful side effects over extended periods of consumption. Yes it "CAN" cause side effects. But Vaping is to smoking cigarettes what drinking clean filtered city water is to drinking coke from a lead can. Smoking cigarettes kills MILLIONS. Vaping hasn't killed anyone that wasn't using pods cut with E oil. You people are fcking retarded and should be ashamed of yourselves.

                Reminds me of a CSGO clip where a guy claimed he was American. They asked him who the president is and he responded “uuuuh Michael Jordan” in the world’s thickest russian acent.

                              Get your facts straight about JUUL Late Show. Ohhhh it's more funny to use misinformation in a shtick? I get it. JUUL branded vape pods do NOT contain the vitamin E acetate which has been making consumers sick/dead. That being said, I don't like JUUL's. I will never buy one. What's getting people sick are the black market pods and juice which is diluted with vitamin E acetate. Vitamin E acetate is mostly if not all found in counterfeit pods and THC cartridges, not from FDA approved products and retailers. You wanna play dumb games getting counterfeit, black market products, you win stupid prizes.

                                Wow. Even Colbert jumps on the bullshit bandwagon about Juul killing teens. Even titled this video for a 4 second mention. And in reality Juul has done nothing wrong and regular cigarettes continue to kill thousands each year. So Colbert is a sellout. What a load of crap our country has become.

                                  Ah, they "disregarded" that evidence? As opposed to going "yes, this is great, the evidence shows what we're doing is working so we should keep it up"? That's a pretttttttttttttty charitable interpretation of their reaction.

Screw those spoiled little brats who are abusing this harm-reduction product...i hope they ALL pick up cigs and die of cancer for their hubris at playing around with medicine that others actually use as medicine and not as a &$#%ing toy.

                                                          Meanwhile scientists are trying to reduce the threat cancer poses towards those susceptible to tobacco addiction, teens are getting hooked and ruining it for everyone, politicians are hiking-up vape taxes so the poor die of lung cancer and pundits are making stupid unfunny jokes about a product that's basically a **ing inhaler for sick junkies. @&$# off Colbert...just in this one instance, i love you, but you're WRONG. The stuff is a miracle for nicotine junkies. Don't let what a bunch of kids are doing force you toward slandering what amounts to a god damn inhaler.

                                                                        Winter spiced cranberry Sprite

                                                                        Remember Crystal Pepsi?

                                                                        Yes, Crystal Pepsi was a real drink from the early 90s.
                                                                        Some people say it tasted like a watered down Mountain Dew.
                                                                        Others had a less forgiving opinion.

                                                                        Now, imagine a rusted can of Mountain Dew, with equal parts old carbonated water, cat urine, and overly sweetened high-fructose corn syrup, left for hours in a damp, dirty, and mildewed car, during the hottest parts of summer.
                                                                        And you may start to realize the above drink description would somehow be preferable to the actual drink created by Pepsi Co.

                                                                        The after taste of it was bad too.
                                                                        It had the flavor of raw-sewage after being stirred by a bloody, sweaty, and vomit covered foot.

                                                                        Grotesque eh?

                                                                        Coke too has created many drink monstrosities, and soda mistakes throughout their long history of beverage flavor artistry.

                                                                        To name two not-tasty flavors: Coca-Cola Vio, (a fruit-milk drink, that was somehow carbonated.)

                                                                        And a combination of Coca-Cola, and coffee flavoring,
                                                                        called Coca-Cola BlāK.
                                                                        Because coffee flavoring and carbonated water are somehow needed?

                                                                        The worst part of waking up, is that shiiiiite in your cup.

                                                                        There are some talks about a re-release in select states.

                                                                        Note to Coke, either stay with the flavor of classic coke, or simply add the cocaine back, because then people’s mouth’s may simply, easily and naturally be too numb to discern the true flavor, plus your new beverage addicts will do anything for your “drink”.

I'm not saying it was purpose-designed to get as many kids as addicted to nicotine as possible as young as possible, I'm just saying if you wanted to come up with such a device for whatever comic-book-villain reasons, you'd have a damn hard time topping the Juul.
