Vapers in Power condemn doxing attacks on our party officers

Vapers In Power, Fergus Mason

Vapers in Power note with concern that our press officer, Martin Cullip, was recently the victim of a doxing attack initiated by a notorious public health activist. We find it extremely disturbing that this sort of harassment is apparently, judging by the lack of condemnation from the perpetrator’s colleagues, regarded as acceptable by many who claim to have the best interests of the public at heart.

Vaping victory in Ohio: Gov. Kasich’s 69% e-cig tax defeated

Vapes.com, Matt Rowland

As a vocal opponent of the vaping industry, Ohio Governor John Kasich has spent nearly six months trying to pass a state operating budget that includes an obscurely-worded 69% e-cig tax.  Also included as a line item was a proposed licensing fee of $1,000 for all vape shops and distributors statewide.  On June 28, the state legislature approved the Governor’s budget but without the included tax increases.

Should there be a complete ban on e-cigarettes in Hong Kong?

MIMS Hong Kong, Victoria Tan

Earlier this year, Professor Sophia Chan, the Under Secretary for Food and Health at that time, had been discussing the legislative arrangements with relevant departments regarding an amendment bill to tighten the regulation on e-cigarettes. With Chan now stepping up as the new Secretary for Food and Health, it is expected the policies will only come sooner rather than later.

Vapers! Appeasement doesn’t work and here’s the evidence

Talking Liberties, Simon Clark

A discussion paper published on April 28 by the Bulletin of the World Health Organisation asks, ‘Should e-cigarette use be included in indoor smoking bans?

It is of course increasingly common for vaping to be prohibited in places where smoking is banned and some countries have even gone so far as to legislate on the issue.

A Gathering of Crows

Robert Innes – Vaping Post

If you want people to believe what you are saying: if you want to avoid becoming an object of ridicule when you try to point out that you are the target of a plot of some kind, whatever you do, no matter how tempting, never, never, never say that you are the victim of a conspiracy….

Vaping 1970’s Style

Ashtray Blog

Anyway, he had this idea, he was a smoker and he was addicted to smoking, and he wondered what would happen if you just inhaled nicotine. Well, first of all pure nicotine was hard to find, it’s a clear odourless liquid in its natural state, so he had this dosage with filter paper and nicotine and he got the same buzz that he had from smoking.
