LEGO launches first-ever Zelda Playset for fans and enthusiasts priced at $300

While LEGO’s released quite a few game-themed playsets in the past few years (the Super Mario and Animal Crossing ones immediately come to mind), they’ve notably missed one title that’s arguably had just as big an impact (if not bigger) on the gaming community as Mario and Animal Crossing.

What’s more potent and harder to regulate than nicotine in vapes? Nicotine alternatives, FDA says

Manufacturers can sell vapes containing synthetic nicotine analogues, such as 6-methyl nicotine, in the United States without seeking authorization from the FDA.

Nicotine alternatives used in vapes being launched in the U.S. and abroad, such as 6-methyl nicotine, may be more potent and addictive than nicotine itself, though the scientific data remains incomplete, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and independent researchers.
