Simple, just tell everyone that IT IS ILLEGAL to VAPE FOR young people.

Oooh, wait, they already know it is illegal! I thought everyone would obey all these laws, what happened?

I just read the post from Simple Fix and had to laugh, because that's the EXACT reason I never tried vaping. A few years ago my girlfriend and I were bored and tried to get vape pens at different places and was turned down all over since we were 17. We gave up and got "distracted" in the back seat for the rest of the night. The next day we were talking about it: "Wait, why do we want to do this?" We never did try. The law is what prevented it, sort of like the laws are now preventing me from entering a bar at 20.
Enforced laws work but if you expect perfection, you're living in a dreamworld.
