Vape tobacco and pipe shops have been springing up everywhere. I see them to be an eyesore- a cheap start up store that anyone can set up and get rich quick, playing to and feeding the addiction of many. 

I believe these stores to be bad for other neighboring businesse and in my mind devalue the area. I was surprised that White Stone allowed such a store, and I'm upset to see one coming soon in kilmarnock. 

Isnt anyone concerned about the youth. The high school kids that get out of school at noon and have 4+ hours before mom gets home? 

Look at past similar stores in our area-  

Topping- http://www.ssentinel.com/index.php/news/article/police_raid_topping_smoke_shop/

Tappahannock - http://www.ssentinel.com/index.php/news/article/spice_charges_bring_guilty_pleas/

Gloucester - http://wtkr.com/2014/02/13/businesses-raided-in-gloucester-county/

Kilmarnock, White Stone.........I'm sure we'll have similar stories to share. 

As a business owner I would never open a store next to or even in the same shopping center as a tobacco store, or a predatory payday/title loan office. Don't even get me started on those places.
