If you were one of the thousands who visited our site and took our “Banned or Restricted?” quiz, then you probably learned a thing or two about where vaping is banned and or restricted around the world. I have to admit, there were a few countries on the list that had me scratching my head. For example, Brunei, a tiny Asian nation on the island of Borneo, currently bans vaping. I had no idea Brunei had laws in place for vape. Nor did I know Brunei was even a country. I guess we learn something every day. Take part two of our Banned or Restricted quiz and test your vaping knowledge.

When Hurricane Harvey made landfall in coastal Texas as a Category 4 hurricane, I received a phone call in the middle of the night from a good friend asking that I pray for him and his family. He was a newlywed at the time and had just moved into his first home. As the storm battered his city and neighborhood, sleep was impossible. Every minute of every day was spent watching the water, hoping against hope that his home would be spared. But then the water came. First it was his small residential street that turned into a river. Then the sidewalks, his lawn and ultimately his driveway. But by good luck, fortune or perhaps simply timing, the levels began to drop just as the water started to creep up his front steps.

The New York Minimum Wage Act (Article 19 of the New York State Labor Law) requires that all employees in the state of New York receive at least the applicable hourly Minimum wage rate. Per New York State Department of Labor General Minimum Wage Rate Schedule, minimum wage rates increase on an annual basis.
The last time New York City workers saw a minimum wage rate change was on December 31st, 2016, increasing what was once a $9.00 an hour base rate to $11.00 per hour (NYC – Large Employers of 11 or more). The next rate change is scheduled to take effect on December 31st of 2017, increasing the minimum wage rate to $13.00 an hour. Exactly the same amount of money cigarette users in New York City will have to dish out for a pack of smokes in the coming year.
That’s right. New York City is boosting the price of a pack of cigarettes from $10.50 to $13.00, in its ongoing crackdown on smoking. And while the hike is set to take effect June 1st of 2018, there is no better time than NOW to make the switch to vaping.
