A New York judge handed a victory to vapers Feb. 5, declaring vape vs. smoke is not the same as smoking and e-cigarette use is not necessarily banned in all the same places as smoking.

Vape Vs. Smoke

“An electronic cigarette neither burns nor contains tobacco,” said the court.
“Instead, the use of such a device, which is commonly referred to as ‘vaping,’ involves the inhalation of vaporized e-cigarette liquid consisting of water, nicotine, a base of propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin and occasionally, flavoring.”

As cities ban the practice of vaping which is absolute insanity. I would venture a guess that these same cities are deodorizing their office buildings with chemicals that are more harmful and contain allot of the same chemicals as a cigarette. Read more on the dangers of air fresheners.

Americans for Non Smoker Rights reports over 53,000 people die every year from second hand smoke. People do have a concern when they see a giant vape plum around an individual who's vaping. That concern stems from the dangers and proven deaths from smoke. Keep in mind vape is not smoke it's steam, or vape.

As the younger generation wants huge vape clouds, the older generation doesn't understand. It's interesting, the older generation vaping consumer would prefer less vapor, while the younger generation wants to steam up a room like a shower.  ...continue reading Vape vs. Smoke NY Judge Ruling

It's Not Smoke! It's Vapor! Vape Advertising T-shits!

Our friends in media in Sioux Falls have gone to their corporate attorney’s on the legalities of Vape advertising. The responses we are receiving from local media are that it is permissible to advertise, there are some regulations:

  • It’s an 18 and over product
  • Products cannot be advertised as healthy (although vaping can differentiate itself from smoking)
  • Advertising should not target children
  • Products can be advertised as an alternative to smoking
  • Products can be advertised as not containing the same harmful ingredients as Big Tobacco

Quite frankly the cost savings alone versus big tobacco are a strong enough advertising statement, saving former smokers thousands a year! The ability to vape inside and have your house or car not reek like an ashtray is an amazing bonus. Plus the fact that vaping is steam not fire and smoke, speaks volumes as to why vaping is a better option for people who enjoy nicotine (without yellow teeth).

In 1965 America drew a line in advertising cigarette products, especially to youth. In fact most big tobacco advertising today is banned on TV and Radio. You will find most marketing of smoking in Hollywood Films or Magazines with adult subscribers. The Days of billboards featuring Camel Joe and even Nascars Winston Cup are a memory for most of us! The younger generations have never been exposed to this type of marketing.

As communities throw down vaping bans, regulate vape advertising and implement codes with no merit or health knowledge available to substantiate such laws, it simply is mind boggling. Meanwhile the Mother Land England whom is far more advanced then the United States with Government Healthcare (Amazing- you don’t have to go bankrupt, do fundraisers, and sell assets if you're diagnosed as severely ill in England)! England is providing vaping units and juice free in their National Healthcare. England wants to get their citizens off the smokes, the country is deeming vaping 95% safer versus smoking.

Now Facebook is stepping in banning vape advertising products grouping the products with tobacco. Now there’s a petition calling Mark Zuckerberg to change the definition. First of all there is no tobacco in vape products. In fact the nicotine found in vaping comes from a vegetable. This is why the states cannot tax it as a tobacco product. There is no tobacco, 100% tobacco free. In a court of law it’s pretty clear you can’t even tax the product as tobacco, there is none! This means tobacco advertising laws are off limits to vaping.  ...continue reading Vape Advertising Facebook Ban

A former smoker turned Vaper, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) is becoming one of the biggest advocates for electronic cigarettes/vaping in Congress. Please watch while he vapes, explains vaping to fellow representatives the differences and the hilarious responses. All held during a Congressional Hearing on Vaping on Airplanes.

Smokers are 60 percent likely to quit smoking with an electronic cigarette device according to an article from The Financial Express. This article also reflected some amazing statements about smoking versus vaping and the healthy differences vaping brings to your body.

Vape Vs Smoke Stain
Smoking Stain Featured at the Top of Napkin. Vape Stain below!

Blow cigar or cigarette smoke onto a napkin it turns yellow, blow vape steam onto a napkin and there is no color change (no toxic stain)! One stick of cigarette contains well over 4,000 toxic chemicals including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. That clearly will show up with every puff of a cigarette, leaving its residue from every drag on a napkin or in your lungs.

You can see it on the faces of pack a day smokers that have switched to vaping! They are no longer grey or ashy looking, they are no longer tired or worn out and they seem to have a bit more bounce in their step. Plus they don’t spend half the time clearing their lungs and coughing during conversations.

The following is an opinion piece featured on The Financial Express, please review how vaping changed this individuals life and how vaping may be a fit to change your life.

The stereotype of your common vape user is youth. Most adults see vaping as a young persons trend! Young adults with ear buds, slight tattoos and piercings enjoying a stroll while vaping.

It's true the younger generations catch on to most trends first and eventually older generations follow! Unfortunately with this trend the rumor about it's harm is just that a rumor. A rumor created to not attract kids to nicotine. Nicotine isn't the problem, the problem is big tobacco and what they put in their products.

Hollywood isn't waiting to vape they are celebrity vaping! Life long smokers and oral tobacco users should not wait either! If you have smoked or chewed tobacco all your life it is time for a change in the way you are using nicotine.

Vaping contains 4 products in its juice. Water, PG (Propylene Glycol), and VG (Vegetable Glycerin) along with nicotine if preferred. These products are also found in a great deal of almost all of our food except for nicotine.

At Common Sense we have seen dozens of habitual, over a pack a day smokers switch to vaping. They tell us they don't cough all the time, their skin color is back to normal, they are more energetic and some are back at the gym. They tell us as the vape modes improve in quality the sensation is similar to cigarettes. They love their world without smoke odor and vaping has better taste. These are customers of all ages. Please do not let the stereotype of this being just a grunge, hippy or youth craze turn you off from changing your habits to a product that the country of England finds 95% safer than smoking which is vaping.

A KTUU Alaska Report

Alaska's department of health has been the worse in the nation on misleading it's citizens on the benefits of vaping versus smoking. Greg Conley President of the American Vaping Association said "They were putting out ads and they still are placing advertising that tried to deceive the public into believing that, if you're a smoker, there's no point in switching to vapor products because they're just as hazardous," Conley said.

The state's chief medical officer, Dr. Jay Butler said those statements were taken out of context. He agreed that vaping may be a good option for a 30-year smoker looking to make a safer change! "We do see more kids using e-cigarettes now than smoking, so e-cigarettes right now are the neatest, shiniest thing and they're kind of cool so in that sense they do provide a riskier alternative to cigarettes," Dr. Butler said.

Dr Butler how are the states children getting these vaping and e-cigarette products? The industry has regulated itself just like the tobacco industry selling to 18 and over-nationwide! Quit pointing to our youth as an example of the future of this product and start getting your citizens off the cancer sticks! If you truly cared about your Alaskan youth? Cigarettes, chewing tobacco and alcohol with all it's new wonderful flavors would be banned from the market. Look up the stats on what these products have done to your state and take the same strides you took with Marijuana, hoping to introduce a better alternative to it's proven killer alcohol.

Vaping has claimed its 1st victim, she didn’t die instead voters kicked New Mexico Democrat Rep. Elizabeth Thomson out of office for her baseless attacks on vapor products and the people who use them. Read More 
I-Vape-I-Vote

Vaping has taken millions of users away from smoking, and voters are fed up with the rhetoric and senseless laws being introduced regarding vaping and e-cigs. Cigarette sales are plummeting and the tax dollars collected are hitting states in the wallet. This motivator alone impels politicians to cry for more taxes on vaping (which clearly isn’t smoking) it also fuels the fire to label vaping as unsafe, untested with unsubstantiated rumors that vaping is more harmful than smoking! These are clearly blatant lies. ...continue reading The “I Vape, I Vote” Roar Influences 2016 Elections!

In a December 29th article in the Des Moines Register. Iowa’s attorney general Tom Miller is touting the relative safety of vaporizing vs. smoking.Tom-Miller Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller stated “…People making misstatements about e-cigarettes have the best of intentions – to keep kids from being addicted to nicotine through e-cigarettes. But adults misleading kids to get them to do what we want has always been a failed strategy.” Read more…

Miller supports the idea that vaping can help current smokers kick deadly cigarette’s which kills half a million people in America annually. England just declared vaping 95% safe versus smokes.

Vaping is not 100% safe, nor is movie theatre popcorn, most of our poultry is on steroids and we digest pesticide from crops on a daily basis. Living a full life means living and smokers finally have another option that is safer than their current habit, 95% safer!
