    FDA Flavor Ban Site Spammed with 255,000 Fake Comments

    Anti-vaping spammers posted more than a quarter of a million comments on the FDA’s public flavor ban consultation in one weekend last month. It is reported that the online public forum was flooded with 255,000 fake comments in a single weekend, with almost every spam comment asking the FDA to ban e-liquid flavors. FDA sources described these fraudulent comments as “extraordinary” and “unprecedented”, according to Regulator Watch. Internet bots entered the quarter million comments between June 8 and June 11, before the FDA finally located the source of the comments and blocked four IP addresses used by the spammers. Most...

  • Vape Stores Banned From Vaping!

    Vape Stores Banned From Vaping!

    A NEW law in a US city has made vaping in vape stores illegal. The ban introduced earlier this week in Milwaukee has seen some store owners worried trade will now be affected, as customers are no longer able to try before they buy. City chiefs extended the same rules for smoking cigarettes to vaping on Tuesday (July 10th), meaning it is now forbidden in restaurants, bars, shops and businesses. Any violators will face fines starting at $100. Worried they could see a drop in business, vape shop owners are now asking Milwaukee’s common council for special in-store vaping permits...

    European Union Considers Tax on Vapers

    The European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union (EU), is holding a public consultation on the taxation of tobacco and vaping products. After postponing a decision on an EU-wide vape tax earlier this year, the Commission could introduce excise duties or ‘sin taxes’ on vaping products in all 28 EU member states in 2019. Consumer associations and tobacco harm reduction organisations in 16 EU countries are encouraging European vapers to respond to the consultation questionnaire and sign a petition opposing the tax. In a similar consultation in 2016, 90% of respondents rejected the idea of taxing vapor products...

  • What Is and Isn’t in Your E-Liquid

    What Is and Isn’t in Your E-Liquid

    Vaping and vape juice is relatively new and not everyone knows exactly what they are putting in their tank. This knowledge gap has created an environment where misinformation spreads rapidly, with certain media publications claiming that e-liquid contains all sorts of nasty additives and chemicals. In reality, e-liquid is made up of four constituent parts with ingredients that are commonly found in products that you eat, drink and smoke regularly. When a regular cigarette burns, it releases as many as 5,000 chemicals into your body. Many of these are poisonous and some are known to cause cancer. While some of the...

    Vaping Helps 1.6 Million Quit Cigs

    VAPING has helped to slash smoking numbers by 1.6 million in six years, an official report has revealed. The impressive new figures show as the number of vape users have risen in Britain, a million and a half tobacco smokers have kicked their deadly habit for good. Experts believe the drop in smokers and rise in e-cigarette users is also due to the UK having a pro-vaping government with its National Health Service encouraging smokers to make the switch to vaping when offering advice on cessation aids. According to the report published by the Office of National Statistics this week...

    Nurses Face Punishment For Vaping

    A UK healthcare trust has extended its no smoking policy to cover vaping - and has threatened disciplinary action against staff who flout its new rules. The Western Health and Social Care Trust, which is responsible for NHS healthcare in the western half of Northern Ireland, has ignored the latest government guidance and added vapour products to its existing smoking ban.

    Ex Smokers Choose Fruit Flavors Over Tobacco

    EX SMOKERS who switched from cigarettes to vaping are more likely to use fruit flavors over tobacco, new research has revealed. While many tobacco smokers initiated e-cigarette use by choosing flavors which mimicked their old habit - namely tobacco or menthol - over time more are switching to fruit, candy, desert or chocolate flavors and haven't returned to cigarettes.

  • How E-Cigarettes Curbed Riots in UK Prisons

    How E-Cigarettes Curbed Riots in UK Prisons

    Vaping popularity has skyrocketed in UK prisons, with more than 65,000 device and e-liquid sales each week. It is estimated that 33,000 prisoners now get their nicotine fix from e-cigarettes after the Ministry of Justice permitted inmates to vape in their cells. Vaping is seen as something of a compromise for prisoners after the government banned smoking last year. This ban led to a sharp increase in the number of mini riots and incidents of violence in prisons. A Prison Service spokesperson told the Metro newspaper: "All closed prisons in England and Wales are now smoke free reducing the risk of...
