Old Farts Vaping is an advocacy idea to show that most current vapers are not young people. The bulk of users are in fact adults, youth make up less than 1 in 10 regular vapers.

Youth Vaping is discussed in detail on these pages: Youth Epidemic and ENDS Youth & Young Adults. See those for more information. TL/DR: 90% of the attention goes to youth, who make up less than 10% of the users of the product; that is crazy!

The disconnect between public perception and reality: A graph showing 480,000 deaths a year cause no public concern, that 17M users are adults and unnoticed, and a tiny bar showing that teens hardly use the product (2.5M) cause huge concern and panic.
