Welcome vape fans! This is the first installment of my twenty-part tour of the United Kingdom. Join me in exploring what these cities have to offer and find out where you can buy your favorite MBV E Juice along the way. My first stop of the tour is Scotland’s largest town, Glasgow. Originally founded during the 6th century by Saint Mungo, Glasgow has grown from a small church village into a sprawling metropolis. Over 615,000 people currently live in the city and over 1.8 million populate the surrounding metro. In 2015, it was estimated that over 7% of Scottish people vape and with Glasgow accounting for 1/3 of the country’s population this seems like the perfect place to start our journey.

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.

Famously known as the “City of Brotherly Love”, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the vape scene in particular, could use a nice big bear hug… or better yet, a break from the levy of taxes imposed by the state legislature last year which has had a detrimental effect on the industry.

Did you know – in 1942, Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson conducted a study to see how the inhalation of propylene glycol affected mice? Within this study, Dr. Robertson advised,
“The propylene glycol itself was a potent germicide. One part of glycol in 2,000,000 parts of air would – within a few seconds – kill concentrations of air-suspended pneumococci, streptococci, and other bacteria numbering millions to the cubic foot.”

Now seems like a good time to make the switch…
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.

A Cleaner, Friendlier, Less Invasive Age Verification System Has Arrived!
Before we ascend the highest mountaintop to announce the new and improved verification system to the masses; there are a few items we’d like to get off our chest.
It’s no surprise that for the longest time, any mention of the verification system infamously known as BlueCheck would spark instant outrage. Customers near and far felt that the verification system was too invasive, too tedious, too redundant and just an overall pain in the gluteus maximus.

Could the FDA rule change push smokers to vaping?
If you are new to vaping, all you need to know is that e-cigarettes heat liquid nicotine, which then becomes vapor. They don’t contain carbon monoxide and tar, which are just some of the many chemicals in cigarettes that can severely compromise a person’s health.
