Hey guys and gals,
I am attending a rally at my state Capital building this Monday (tomorrow!) and remembered to post something here as well. I will be signing in opposition to a proposed bill designed, basically, to kill vaping. This is happening all over the USA and many countries around the World. Specifically here in WA, my elected officials are proposing such outrageous things such as a 95% tax on ALL vaping products from batteries, to chargers, tanks and so forth. A Mini Nautilus would be priced at near $90 in some cases!!! Also a ban on in-store flavor sampling, to go along with a ban on ANY flavors other than traditional tobacco and menthol. Online sales would also be banned, seemingly to prevent us from buying product out-of-state at normal prices. Anyway, my point is this:
If we want to see continued success and growth of the vaping industry we need to literally fight for our right to vape! I urge you all to join casaa.org (in the USA) for advocacy information. You can choose to receive info just for your state or nationwide. If you're in Washington please look into the Pink Lung Brigade as well. If that isn't your style, at least reach out to your own state rep. and speak your mind. Please be polite in doing so.
Hundreds of thousands of people die every day from tobacco harm, yet vaping is making news headlines because of ingnorant "scientific" studies (using silica wicked clearomizers TOTALLY DRY and at 12 WATTS to forcedully produce a harmful condition [nobody uses silica wicks anymore so please don't worry, and if you do use a silica wicked tank ... it's time to upgrade, like, yesterday]) and others such as one confirmed case of a mechanical mod literally blowing up somewhere in California (I don't know the whole story, Google it). This brings me to my second point:
Let's get this forum active! I know that new members will come in time but those of us that are here now should try to be a little more active. We should post tips for eachother, pictures, and most importantly help educate eachother! *I am not affiliated with Aspire, Pink Lung Brigade, casaa.org or anything like that... I'm just a passionate vaper, like you (I hope!)*
Take care everyone. Keep calm and vape on #kcavo 8-)
yeah, I'm wearing my robe, it's 3:30am here :shock: :P
