“That’s Good Smoke”

The American television and radio host Larry King found himself in a coughing fit after trying a cucumber-flavored vape juice.

Standing at a valet stand outside a West Hollywood restaurant, Larry King was fielding the typical nonsensical questions from TMZ reporters when a female puffing on a vaping device caught his attention.

Oh, so Now They Wanna “HEAT-Not-BURN”

There was a time not long ago, (perhaps even still), when Philip Morris, the world’s second-largest tobacco company (80.1 billion USD 2014) was paying brand ambassadors or “freelancers” 50 British Pounds, the equivalent of about 67 US Dollars to persuade users to quit their habit of using traditional tobacco cigarettes.

The Old Japanese Proverb

“THE NAIL THAT STICKS OUT FARTHEST GETS HAMMERED THE HARDEST”

People often use this saying to make a point about Japan, how it’s hard to be different, and that any deviance is met with resistance.

I am fully convinced that vaping is akin to this nail, sticking up from the rest only to be hammered down due to its deviation from the norm. And due to this relentless pounding (no pun intended) on the part of governmental bodies and big tobacco lobbyist to stifle an industry on the rise, it is our duty as fellow vapors to make sure we continue to disseminate good science concerning vaping.

Sacré Bleu!

“The sultry smoker lighting up on a Parisian café terrace, a staple image for countless French films could soon be a thing of the past if Agnès Buzyn, the country’s health minister goes ahead with plans to ban smoking in movies,” says Rory Mulholland of the Telegraph.

As an avid writer, screenwriter and overall fan of a tantalizing story, there’s a part of me that is at odds with the idea of banning smoking, a very real aspect of life, from French films.

(If only you could see the bemused expression creased across my face.)

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 aforementioned were just some of the headlines trending online today. Article after article of the same stagnant rhetoric disseminated to the masses in order to maintain fear and abate change.
