Change

“Don’t Vape Your Health Away”
“The fading vape culture”
“Smoke Screen”
“E-cigarettes with more nicotine may make teens vape more”
“Vaping controversy still hazy”
“School closes bathrooms to combat vaping”

The ARMAGEDDON could very well be upon us!

The last great battle between vape shops and big tobacco, or what I like to refer to as the battle of “good versus evil” may not have begun outright just yet, but a very subtle disturbance in the water tells us that there is some major churning happening beneath the surface… a lot more on this later.

With so many vape friendly activities in the area, you’ll want to stock up on your favorite MBV e-juice before heading out.
