Indefatigable…

… Is the uberly difficult to pronounce word of the minute, hour, day, week, month, year and indefinite future, so it seems… at least as far as vaping is concerned.

Indefatigable, pronounced “in-di-fat-i-guh-buhl”, is an adjective used to describe a person or entity, usually in regards to their efforts, that is incapable of being tired out; not yielding to fatigue; untiring.

Good Ol’ Chuck Bringing The Noise…

The bosom buddies or those I like to refer to as the “Orcs” of Big Tobacco are at it again y’all.

Over the weekend, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, in all his wisdom, urged the federal government to reverse a recent decision to delay the regulation of e-cigarettes after citing alarming data that show one in five teens in New York State… wait for it… vape.

– Cue the GASPS from government lobbyist’s! –

A nicotine delivery gadget called, “Juul” has become especially popular among teenagers because it’s easy to hide, Schumer said at a press conference in Manhattan.

The Blood Seekers!

The war on vaping and the governmental regimes that use your precious blood for profit.

Did you know, The World Health Organization or WHO, estimates that one billion people will die early from smoking cigarettes? Yes, that’s right. One billion with a capital—B! According to the United States Census Bureau, the current world population roughly stands at 7.5 billion people. About one birth occurs every 8 seconds while every 12 seconds, a life is lost. So, taking into account the data provided, we can look forward to a lot more room on this planet at the turn of the century due to the loss of life attributed to cigarette use.

What a grim outlook…

Popcorn Lung?

So, a few days ago I wrote a blog called, It’s What The Doctor Ordered, about a top doctor over in Australia calling for a total ban on cigarettes. As always, the blogs on Mt Baker Vapor are disseminated throughout all our social media platforms and almost always generate some interesting feedback.

It’s What The Doctor Ordered

For several months now your body has been behaving outside of its norm, so you decide to schedule an appointment with your doctor. Weeks pass and finally you are able to sit down to explain all of your symptoms, which immediately prompts a health screening. After undergoing several tests, your doctor reveals that you are in fact, an alien. Cue X-Files theme music. No, just kidding. After several tests, you come to find out that you have severely high levels of bad cholesterol— shocker! Your doctor recommends a low-fat diet by avoiding saturated fats, particularly eggs, dairy and red meat. You follow the doctor’s orders, adhere to his/her recommendations and voilà, you lower your bad cholesterol and restore the vitality you once enjoyed. You even manage to knock a few outstanding projects off that long list of yours.

Flavor Sensitivity

“I’M OLD. I LIKE SWEETS AND I LIKE TO POOP IN MY PANTS!”

Perhaps there is no state more embroiled in vaping advocacy and suppression than the great state of New York. On the one hand, you have New York City mayor Bill De Blasio signing a bill to hike cigarette prices to a minimum of $13 per pack in an effort to get the city’s estimated 900,000 smokers to let go of the deadly habit. And on the other hand, you have those like Manhattan Assemblywoman, Linda Rosenthal, who wants to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarette liquids to curb teen vaping. Again, with supposedly “little research” there are those who still associate the assumed dangers of vaping with the well-known dangers of smoking.

The Mighty Regulators and Their High-Handed Ways

Compliance, compliance… compliance. Y’know what, let’s go ahead and toss on one more “compliance” just for good measure.

Sheesh. Whoever said changing lives was easy, sure had it all wrong.

For all those who don’t know, or didn’t know, the FDA regulations came into effect on August 8th, 2016. From the 8th on, only vaping products that are already on sale will be allowed to be sold for the next six years; a deadline that previously was two years until a recent FDA change. After these six years, only FDA compliant products will be allowed to be sold in the US, at an astronomical cost. These regulations differ vastly with the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) which is a directive of the European Union which places limits on the sale and merchandising of tobacco and tobacco related products in the EU. Within all member states of the European Union, e-cigarettes now have to adhere to certain standards. Nicotine levels have an upper limit of 20mg/ml, e-liquid tanks are to be no large than 2ml, advertising has been severely reduced and there is a 6 month wait to market for new products. In May of 2017, the Tobacco Products Directive came into force.

Vaping Abroad – Part Three

Nottingham Healthcare NHS Trust Foundation is giving mental health patients free e-cigarettes as part of a plan to provide their patients with a healthier alternative to smoking. The Nottingham Healthcare NHS Trust Foundation is handing out E-Burn (a low security risk e-cigarette) as part of their intake process. This is part of a national movement in the UK to further the use of e-cigarettes to reduce the number of smokers and to create more smoke free facilities.
