Leonardo DiCaprio vapes up a storm, vaping bans are proposed indoors and outdoors, the American Lung Association says tobacco taxes aren’t high enough, the latest round of junk science gets brought back down to earth and we’re treated to a double-dose of anti-vaping bullshit: it’s the Week in Vaping.
This week, cherry flavored e-liquid is the worst thing since cigarettes, vaping is a gateway to smoking, nobody knows that vaping is safer than smoking and vapers apparently live in a constant state of fear. E-cigs also help you quit smoking, though, and smokers should definitely switch. It's the Week in Vaping.
Taxes on vaping have been proposed in many states already, and as a post by Americans for Tax Reform shows, four states and several localities have already approved taxes. Many other states have bills pending, and even more will undoubtedly impose them in future. So where is vaping being taxed? And, most importantly, what are the likely consequences of taxes on vaping?
It’s time for the Week in Vaping. This week, flavors are luring teens into vaping (they aren’t), vaping impedes quitting (it doesn’t), indoor vaping bans are necessary for public health (they aren’t) and Public Health England were just hypnotized by the tobacco industry into saying e-cigarettes are much safer than cigarettes (of course!).
Vaping makes you too drunk to drive safely, reduces your chances of quitting smoking, should be banned outdoors, shouldn’t be allowed on college campuses and is grounds for not hiring somebody, if you believe the news this week. In other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect from the Week in Vaping.
With some claims that e-cigarettes are going to give us all cancer, more bans on vaping in Malaysian regions, some irrational state legislation proposed in the US, some positive coverage in the mainstream media, several excellent blog posts and a new coalition of students dedicated to spreading more bullshit about e-cigarettes, it’s the Week in Vaping.
With some rare pieces of good news on the regulatory front (although there’s more bad than good news, obviously), a new wave of concern about the children following the release of the new Monitoring the Future data, more bad news for Malaysian vapers and some great blog posts from the community, it’s the Week in Vaping.
With a new study kicking up a big fuss about diacetyl, the proposed ban on indoor vaping in Wales losing its teeth, a bomb scare happening because someone was rebuilding a coil on a bus, e-cigs (or at least one) set to be available on prescription in the UK, more proposals to raise the minimum age for smoking to 21 and some great blog posts from vapers: it’s the Week in Vaping.
It's been jam-packed with research this week, from studies leading to claims that vaping will cause lung cancer to ones finding little to no risk of passive vaping, but there's also been the usual selection of new pieces of legislation, excellent blog posts from the community and some serious nonsense spouted about e-cigs. It's the Week in Vaping.
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s a great time to pick up new vaping gear – whether as gift for someone else or just a "to me, from me" treat – and the industry has responded with a solid selection of new devices and atomizers hitting the market in November. So this month's vaping product releases roundup is particularly well-stocked with awesome new gear!
With a pair of “think of the children!” studies, taxes, regulations, more vaping bans, a suicide tied to e-liquid and some great blog posts, it’s been a typically busy week for e-cigarettes. But keeping up isn’t easy, so we’ve collected the most important stories from the last seven days for your rundown of the Week in Vaping.
With yet more bans on indoor vaping, anti-THR research, a litany of litigation, more “think of the children” nonsense designed to drum up support for restrictions on vaping and public health advocates starting to wonder how they should reconcile their evidence-free opposition to vaping with the growing body of evidence that it’s much safer than smoking, it’s the Week in Vaping.
Another week, and more of the usual in the world of vaping. People overestimate the risks of e-cigarettes, moves to ban indoor vaping continue in many localities and even in public housing units, misused mechanical mods explode, countries grapple with how to regulate e-cigs and the onslaught of anti-vaping nonsense continues.
With more attacks on the evidence-based conclusion that vaping is around 95 % safer than smoking, bans on indoor vaping, absurdly high taxes proposed on e-liquid and Malaysia taking distinct turns towards anti-vaping extremism of the worst variety, it’s been a decidedly grim Week in Vaping. So – if you can stomach it – let’s dive in.
With more stirrings about the FDA’s e-cig regulation, explosions, claims that e-cigarettes encourage heavy drinking, more explosions and the executive director of the American Lung Association insinuating that e-cigs would have to be safer than air for indoor vaping to be acceptable, it’s been an interesting seven days. Here’s the Week in Vaping.
With more vaping bans proposed, some movements on the FDA regulations, a couple of new e-cigarette studies, several great articles on vaping from inside and outside the community, and one of the most thoroughly absurd winners of “Bullshit of the Week” so far: here’s the Week in Vaping.
The new edition of the Week in Vaping is here, bringing you the news from the vaping world with some occasional snark thrown in for good measure. This week has seen the release of a couple of interesting studies, some typically irrational moves to ban vaping (even outside), and several great posts from across the community and elsewhere.
The Week in Vaping is back, with a run-down of the latest vaping and tobacco harm reduction related research, a look at recently proposed legislation, regulations and bans on vaping – increasingly frequently stretching outdoors – and some of the best blog posts from the community this week.
Along with the usual repetition of myths and the hyping of battery explosions, there have been a couple of positive stories published in mainstream media outlets this week, and some lively debate about whether schools should allow students to vape if they’d otherwise be smoking. The Week in Vaping covers all these stories and more!
