Why Do Teens Think E-Cigs are Cool? | [Why Do 'Journalists' Publish Crap Like This?]

Why Do Teens Think E-Cigs are Cool? | [Why Do 'Journalists' Publish Crap Like This?] | Premium Cigar Lifestyler | Scoop.it

(NaturalNews) What is the measurement, the "dilution" of nicotine you are receiving with your e-cig nic fit? Do you know? Does it say on the side of the juice "loader" - the "nic-juice" cartridge? Who loaded it, some "reputable company" who exports it from China? What's their guarantee and is that guarantee extended to minors? Does the FDA regulate it? Why not?

You may have noticed a lack of posts recently.  It was not for trying but instead word press decided to be uncooperative.  For about two weeks, none of us could get in.  Oh there were brief moments when it teased us and gae us some hope, but then it went right back to being ornery.  You probably noticed it as well when the freaking blog wouldn’t even load.  Ain’t computers great?

NYC Health Commissioner Says E-Cigs Must Be Banned Because They Look Like the Real Thing

NYC Health Commissioner Says E-Cigs Must Be Banned Because They Look Like the Real Thing | Premium Cigar Lifestyler | Scoop.it

Yesterday the New York City Council held what The New York Times describesas "one of the most scientifically vague and emotionally charged health committee hearings in recent memory." The scientifically vague part was the justification offered by supporters of a ban on the use of electronic cigarettes in "public places" such as bars and restaurants. The main sponsor of the proposed ban, Councilman James Gennaro, has said it is aimed at protecting children who might mistake e-cigarettes for the real thing, conclude that smoking must be cool again, and proceed directly to a pack-a-day habit that will endanger their health and shorten their lives. Perhaps recognizing that some people might deem this scenario implausible, ban backers offered a few more arguments at yesterday's hearing:

Cigar Reviews and More at the Tiki Bar Online: Cigar Review: AKA Cigars Respect 2013 | Premium Cigar Lifestyler | Scoop.it

When I was talking to Jay Lundy about his new cigars at the Chattanooga Tweetup and he told me he permanently changed the Respect blend to this less strong one.  Since I really liked the original, I was a little bit worried to hear this.  I was very curious to find out what Jay did with this blend.  You can view Dave's review of the original blend here.  According to the AKA website it doesn't look as though the varietals of tobacco have changes just the blend.  Jay was kind enough to provide this cigar and the two previous cigars I smoked of this new blend.

Therefore, it's incumbent upon the cigar enthusiasts of the United States to voice their opposition to any proposed new regulation of premium/traditional cigars by the United States Government.

Smoking Anarchy in Detroit? « LewRockwell.com Blog

Smoking Anarchy in Detroit? « LewRockwell.com Blog | Premium Cigar Lifestyler | Scoop.it

One thing I love about my city is that the authorities are too incompetent to enforce anything, and everyone knows it. Everyone laughs or brags about it, which is even better. The politicians are only concerned with empowering their offices and staffs while enlarging their circle of swindle. Given a choice, I'd rather have the legalized criminals paying attention to their own pockets if the trade-off is that they leave the rest of alone to conduct our voluntaryist lives of interaction, transaction, and entrepreneurial vision.

Because this insolvent city is tilting toward bankruptcy and lacks a police force to keep up with serious crime, business are, for a large part, left alone to conduct business as they wish. This is because Detroit just does not have the political manpower or police wherewithal to enforce absurd laws, including state laws.

A Big Move for La Gloria and More Smoking Laws by Frank Seltzer | JR Cigars Blog

A Big Move for La Gloria and More Smoking Laws by Frank Seltzer | JR Cigars Blog | Premium Cigar Lifestyler | Scoop.it

La Gloria Cubana is making a move.  The cigar was first made in Miami, then when he could not keep up with demand, owner Ernesto Perez Carrillo moved production to the Dominican Republic in the mid 90s with Miami being phased out.  Carrillo sold his company to Swedish Match, which eventually became part of General Cigar.   The company kept Ernie’s old factory until a few years ago when they moved it into their main facility, while still keeping it separate.
