Bad News For Vaping. Anti-Vaping Lies Are Working

The number of people who are now vaping has reached an all-time high. According to a newly released Reuters/IPSOS poll of 9,766 adults surveyed, 10% use electronic cigarettes or vaporizers. Extrapolating that nationally translates into potentially 30 million vapers. There is a flip side to this that is concerning and that is that this same poll also showed that ecig and vaping misinformation is impacting public opinion. The best news is that with vaping, cigarette smoking is at an all-time low. The smoking rate is now 15.1%, a big decrease from 2015. The worry is that those smoking rates could actually increase given the current climate of misinformation and the potential for crushing regulation that could drive vapers back...

Ecig Taxes Next On Agenda Due To FDA Ruling

Ecig taxes have been on the horizon for a while now and some states have already gotten on the idea. Just this year we’ve seen a proposal that would hurt Vaping in Utah by enacting a huge 86.5% tax. Not to be outdone, a Vermont ecig tax was also proposed, at a rate of 92%. These are just astounding numbers and, although they haven’t yet made their way through state legislation, they give us cause to be concerned. The main thrust behind these ecig taxes is that states such as Utah and Vermont are arguing that electronic cigarettes can and need to be taxed like traditional tobacco cigarettes. They say there isn’t a difference between...

Vape Halo eCigs And Fight The FDA Overreach

Well it has been quite a couple of weeks for vaping. We all knew that the FDA ecig regulations would be unveiled at any time and we had strong suspicions that the rules would not be favorable to the vaping community. Frankly, it is rather easy to tell when you are being ignored and the FDA certainly ignored the voice of the vaping community.  On the other hand, the anti-vaping groups that have all the government and bureaucratic connections had the full attention of the FDA. The writing was on the wall. So we had a few bad days contemplating how these regulations will make it easier to smoke than to vape. Worse, these regulations give cigarettes...

Eliquid Maker Nicopure Labs Fights Back

The recently finalized and announced FDA regulations could very well hit ecig brands hard , especially those who sell eliquid. But first a short recap about these new FDA regulations. We’ve been waiting for the so-called deeming rule to be finalized for well over a year now, with it being pushed back at every turn. The question has always been how will the FDA see electronic cigarettes and what category would the place things like eliquid into. When the final ruling came down, it was a bombshell. The FDA has chosen to view electronic cigarettes in the same way they view tobacco products. This is something we have been talking about since it happened. We’ve covered how...

FDA Targets Vaping Will Smokers Pay The Price?

The FDA has unveiled their intentions toward regulating electronic cigarettes and the measures are more austere than any tobacco company has ever come close to facing. While the UK is focusing on harm reduction, in the US regulators are seemingly obsessed with unfounded hypotheticals to an extreme level. The US lagging far behind the UK in developing policy based on reality and the result is smokers may be paying with their lives. Very sadly, we have seen this movie before. Let’s be clear, the interests of public health are severely damaged by the impending FDA e-cigarette regulations. The US regulators have taken their eye completely off the ball and slipped into a delirium of denial. In the UK, the...

Vaping Effects On The Heart Much Less Than Smoking

A new ecig study is showing us that vaping effects on the heart are much less than that of smoking. The study showed that smoking triggers a stress response in heart cells where as vapor triggers no stress response. The study author, Professor Marcus Munafo, said  “This result suggests tobacco smokers may be able to reduce immediate tobacco-related harm by switching from conventional cigarettes to e-cigarettes.” This latest study of vaping effects on the heart was conducted using only one type of ecig and also using lab grown heart cells. Nonetheless, this is a promising study and adds to the growing evidence that is telling us that vaping is safer than smoking. So while many alarmists are...

Ecig Industry Faces Oppressive FDA Regulations

You must have heard by now that FDA deeming regulations for electronic cigarettes have been released after a long wait, but what does this mean for ecig companies? It’s one of the first questions that came to our mind after we heard. Actually it was more like the third thing that came to our minds. The first thought was how do we fight this? These FDA regulations are clearly a threat because they take the view that electronic cigarettes and all vapor products are essentially tobacco products. That’s not good for ecig brands, and that’s not good for vapers. Which is the second question that then came up. What does this mean for vapers? Well, right now,...

The Fight For Vape Rights Has Many Obstacles

So it happened. The FDA has revealed the deeming regulations and they are indeed claiming the electronic cigarettes or ENDS (electronic nicotine delivery systems) and eliquids are being classified as tobacco products. This is the outcome we have been both expecting and dreading. Any tobacco product has to go through an extensive and expensive approval process in order to stay on the market. The FDA is requiring the tobacco products like ejuice list all ingredients. That’s a good law. They are ensuring that vapes are not sold to children and limiting the scope of advertising. Okay, that’s reasonable. They want childproof caps on ejuice. Of course, all of these are basic common sense. So if you are a vape...
