Small Denver vape shops worry age change to 21 would put them out of business
DENVER -- A Denver proposal to ban people younger than 21 from buying tobacco products has people like Johann Gottschalk, who managers the Hush Vapor Lounge, worried. “First of all, we’d be losing me. I’m only 19 years old. I wouldn’t have a job,” Gottschalk said. “A lot of my customers that come in here are right around the age between 18 to 20. I’d say today about 40 percent of my customers are that young age.”
