The vaping giraffe: Loosing income from sin taxes shouldn't be a problem

The vaping giraffe: Loosing income from sin taxes shouldn't be a problem | Vaping | Scoop.it
I think I'll start with the conclusion of this post right here at the beginning for a change: If it's a problem for a government that they loose income from a so-called sin tax, it's not actually a sin tax. When I say sin tax I mean taxes designed to make people stop doing something that is bad for themselves, the people around them, the environment and so on. In other words... it's supposed to discourage people from doing something we don't want them to. So if you start loosing income from a sin tax, you should be happy with that, and not desperate to find something else to tax like some politicians apparently are right now.

Here we have a bunch of mice that are fed nicotine one day and cocaine the next day and it turns out they react differently to the cocaine. And what can we conclude from this? Of course this shows that e-cigarettes will make people addicted to cocaine... *sigh*

The Complete Guide to E-Cig Safety - Lindsay Fox of EcigaretteReviewed

The Complete Guide to E-Cig Safety - Lindsay Fox of EcigaretteReviewed | Vaping | Scoop.it

E-cigs are basically designed for the health-conscious smoker, but frequent reports of things likebattery explosions and scattered e-liquid poisonings serve as stark reminders that it isn’t all about the relative safety of vaporized e-liquid in comparison to combusted tobacco. In fact, learning about the basic safe use of an electronic cigarette is essential, whether you have a beginner-friendly cig-a-like, an eGo style model, an electronically-regulated APV or (especially) a mechanical mod.

 

Without intending to be insensitive, it must be said that most of the events that have occurred so far can be put down to people not following reasonable safety precautions. That’s what the “Complete Guide to E-Cig Safety” is for – to provide all the information you need to safely use your e-cig in one place. There will still be accidents (because there always are), but if vapers heed the advice given here, they can be kept to an absolute minimum.

The Makers of Vuse and Blu E-Cigs Are Lobbying to Ban Vaping

The Makers of Vuse and Blu E-Cigs Are Lobbying to Ban Vaping | Vaping | Scoop.it
The biggest of the big tobacco companies, RJ Reynolds, which also owns the fast-growing e-cig brand Vuse, is trying real hard to convince lawmakers to ban vaping. That might sound ass-backwards, but it isn't. The firm is almost certainly hoping to stymie the competition by making sure its disposable "cigalikes" pass regulations but the refillable mods you find at your local vape shop don't.

The vaping giraffe: Scary substances found in e-liquid... and in everything else we eat, drink or inhale

The vaping giraffe: Scary substances found in e-liquid... and in everything else we eat, drink or inhale | Vaping | Scoop.it
Lately we've gotten some reports and studies about the dangers of vaping. Apparently the vapor produced by our e-cigarettes are not completely free of dangerous substances after all. A friend of mine told me a couple of days ago that he had read they were even more dangerous than real cigarettes. I didn't get to the bottom of exactly where he had read it but I am guessing there has been some article in Norwegian media related to the findings of diacetyl in e-liquid. Probably about as scary as this one from Metro: http://goo.gl/WBUugk. Or it might have been some article about the WHO report and their unsupported claims of dangerous substances in e-cigarette vapor.
