Knowledge is Power

We here at Mt. Baker Vapor love vaping, having a great time, and providing a great 167303514 copyservice.
However, with all of the current controversy surrounding the e-cig debate, we want to take some time to address the current concerns being discussed in the media and legislation. We will be providing a weekly blog, each week focusing on one specific subject matter, so that we can really look at each subject from several angles, and see what the experts are saying about those subjects.

Here at Mt Baker Vapor, we are all passionate about vaping, and healthy living. The idea that we are not just going to work each day to get a paycheck, but actually providing a service that could give smokers the potential to quit smoking, makes what was just a job more meaningful.

Vaping has become a passionate issue on both sides of the debate, and people tend to fear that which they do not know. So, instead of eliminating aspects of the vaping industry due to fear and uncertainty, lets get the informed answers and then make decisions based on science, facts, and what is truly best for the people. With that in mind, we want to take the time to share the information we have with you.

Today’s Blog is an introduction to the series. Some, but not all, of the subjects we will be covering include a basic overview of what e-cigarettes and vaping really entails, the health effects of smoking vs vaping, vaping as a smoking cessation, flavors – are they safe (do they attract children to vaping/smoking?), vaping as a gateway into smoking, and many more subjects.

Our goal is not to tell you what to believe, but rather to give you the information you need to make a knowledgeable decision on your own. Public opinion matters, so take the information, make a decision, then spread the knowledge, write letters, take an active role to ensure the choice you make is available to you when you are ready to take action. We are being affected as a community, therefore we should stand as a community.

Be sure to come back next week when we will be talking about Health Effects of Smoking vs. Vaping & Vaping in Public Places.

Something to Think About:

Are there concerns you would like to see addressed in this series? What actions can/should or shouldn’t be taken to regulate the industry?

  • Randy Willis says:

    Something that I don’t see discussed often is the research by Karl Fagerstrom indicating that the addictive qualities of nicotine are minimized through the use of ecigs/vaping. Specifically, he stated “There is very little to no evidence for the abuse of nicotine when not delivered in a tobacco vehicle.”
