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.

What’s in Your Bottle?

POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE— ever heard of it?  Chances are, you have not.

And this is not to say that you are not well-versed in the egregiously complicated language of chemistry because I’m sure you are. However, if you are like me (Lawd Jesus, I hope you are not like me), busy as all hell, sprinting through life, then you probably do not have time to flip your bottle upside down in order to see what type of plastic is being used.
