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.
“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
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.
Teens are not the only ones in America that are catching on to the vape changes in our culture. Hollywood super stars of all ages are gravitating to Celebrity Vaping!
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.
