"Teen dripping is a dangerous new vaping trend," say people with no idea what they're talking about

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

"'Dripping' may be a new, dangerous trend for teens who vape" - USA Today "Teens use e-cigarettes for 'dripping,' study says" - CNN "Plain Old Vaping Gives Way to ‘Dripping’ Among Teenagers, Study Says" - The New York Times "New e-cigarette ‘dripping’ craze that gives teens stronger hit ‘increases risk of exposure to harmful toxins’" - The Sun "Many teens use e-cigarettes for 'dripping' liquid nicotine" - Fox News "‘Dripping’: the new, dangerous trend for vaping teens" - South China Morning...

State Senators Want to Fully Ban E-Cigarettes, but not Traditional Cigarettes

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Democrats Ronald Kouchi and Will Espero of the Hawaiian Senate introduced a bill last month that would completely ban sales of electronic cigarettes in the state. If passed, this would be the first of its kind in the US. Meanwhile, combustible cigarettes, which have been proven deadly by mountains of research spanning many decades, would still be legal for all persons over 21 years old. The Democratic Party holds the entire Senate in Hawaii and has a majority in the House of Representatives....

New Study: By Patch, Gum, or E-Cigarettes, Quitting Smoking is What Really Matters

Tuesday, February 07, 2017

A new cross-sectional study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine compared carcinogen biomarkers in urine and saliva samples from people who were long-term smokers with former smokers who used e-cigarettes or traditional NRT (the patch or nicotine gum) for at least 6 months. A third group in the study used e-cigarettes or NRT but also continued to smoke.The results showed greatly reduced exposure to carcinogens in those who quit smoking, and no reduction to exposure in those who...

Ohio Gov. John Kasich Proposes 69% Wholesale Tax on Vapor Products

Wednesday, February 01, 2017

While other members of his party work to loosen restrictive and unnecessary regulations on e-cigarettes, Republican Governor John Kasich has announced plans to raise taxes on conventional tobacco products and—as is the current fad—to add an "equivalent" tax on vapor products. If the tax rolls out in a fashion similar to other states, it will be about a 70% tax on the wholesale price of products that will be passed on to the consumer.Many of those consumers may simply turn to out-of-state online...

Apple Shuts Down 3rd Party Vaping Apps and Patents Their Own Vaporizer

Friday, January 27, 2017

Oddly, right after an update for the Planet of the Vapes app was rejected by the app store, news hit that Apple had also just patented its own sick vape. The app rejection was due to a new, unwritten rule that Apple apparently just made prohibiting any apps that promote or facilitate the sale of tobacco, nicotine, or associated paraphernalia, and the vaporizer patent was published just two days after Apple rejected the POTV app.It's not at all clear whether this vaporizer design is meant for...

Plan to Ban Vaping in National Parks Was Scrapped

Friday, January 20, 2017

The US National Parks Service proposed a new rule that would ban vaping anywhere combustible cigarettes were banned in all National Parks, and published it for a 60 day public comment period on January 6th. Earlier this week though, they completely scrapped it. The original proposal was full of doom and gloom about scary chemicals, fires, and explosions, as you'd expect, but their decision to pull it was unexpected and still remains mysterious. In an email conversation with Gizmodo, an NPS...

E-Cigarettes Make Teens Turn to Life of Crime, Physician Warns

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Dr. Sudip Bose, a man who wrote a Wikipedia entry for himself and had it subsequently deleted because it was "promotional in nature and of a low-profile individual notable only for one event", recently wrote a blog piece at the Huffington Post where he made some of the most absurd claims about e-cigarettes I've ever read. And I've read some pretty absurd stuff over the years. Aside from all the usual nonsense about attractive flavors, misinformation about nicotine, and scary sounding chemicals...

"Naughty" woman vapes where she isn't supposed to

Friday, January 13, 2017

Now look, I don't vape where I'm not supposed to, and of course I don't approve of it. I encourage you to vape responsibly and respectfully. But I might consider giving this lovable lady a pass because she has me in stitches right now, and at least she readily admits she's being very naughty. Also, kudos to her for kicking cigarettes after smoking all the way into her 60s, and for being so inspired by them to start her own YouTube channel. If you liked this, I recommend checking out her other...

Beginner’s Guide to Vaping and Best E-Cigarette Starter Kits | 2017

Monday, January 09, 2017

I try to update this page every few months to keep it current, but it's gotten pretty dense at this point. Feel free to just skim through most of it for now and/or use it as a reference later if you need it. I don't go into the health or cost benefits of vaping vs smoking here either. Just know that there are no experts in relevant fields of science or medicine who think smoking is safer than vaping. What does an electronic cigarette do? An e-cigarette, (or vaporizer, or mod, or vape, or...

Good Riddance, 2016. Hello, Free E-Juice.

Sunday, January 01, 2017

2016 was a rough year for a lot of people in a lot of ways, and the e-cigarette industry was no exception. Here are just a few bad things that happened this year: FDA Deeming RegulationsThe FDA announced their new rules for e-cigarettes this spring which will require every e-cigarette and e-liquid manufacturer to go through a complex and preposterously expensive process for each and every product they distribute with no guarantee the products will even be approved and little to no information...

The Non-Vaper's Guide to Manners and Etiquette

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Are you a non-vaper who feels inexplicably compelled to be rude or obnoxious every time you see somebody minding their own business and enjoying an e-cigarette? Are you tired of being such a loathsome jerk? If so, this is the guide for you. 1. Vapers are not vaping for youThat vaper in the corner of the smoking area or walking down the street is not trying to impress you, isn't trying to be cool, and doesn't want your attention, you narcissist. I can assure you that we also vape when we're all...

Senator Schumer asks for exploding e-cigarette recall, and that's probably a good thing

Monday, December 19, 2016

Senator Charles Schumer recently called for the federal government to issue recalls on e-cigarettes that have malfunctioned and caused burns or other injuries, and I think this is a great idea. An actual investigation into the incidents would reveal that almost all injury cases attributed to e-cigarettes are actually just mishandling of 18650 batteries, which aren't e-cigarettes at all. A federal investigation showing this may finally change the media narrative and the general public may...

Heavy metal in e-cigarette vapor doesn't appear to be cause for concern

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Just as with formaldehyde, public health campaigns against e-cigarettes often offer up a couple studies that found potentially toxic metals in e-cigarette aerosol as evidence that vaping is dangerous, and the recent report filed by the Surgeon General is no exception. But these studies were small and are very old at this point—conducted on first generation e-cigarettes in 2013—and the levels measured in them actually appear to be non-toxic. Farsalinos et al. looked at the levels of the various...

Latest data shows no evidence vaping is leading teens to smoking

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

The 2016 data from the Monitoring the Future study (MTF) is rolling in and—despite numerous public health officials claiming otherwise—teen vaping still isn't increasing teen smoking. The above graph shows smoking rates among high school students from 1999 to 2016 and student vaping rates from 2011 to 2016. While I wouldn't take the latest data point by itself to conclude teen vaping is in decline (though that may be the case), I think we can confidently say huge increases in teen vaping don't...

Vape-Friendly Legislators to Vice President-Elect: Repeal FDA E-Cigarette Regulations

Senator Ron Johnson, who sent a number of letters to the FDA demanding answers about the damage their e-cigarette regulations will cause to business owners and smokers, and Representative Duncan Hunter, who gained a reputation as "the vaping congressman" after he took a puff from his e-cigarette during a legislative session have teamed up and written Vice President-elect Mike Pence an official letter voicing their concerns about e-cigarette regulation in the US. Here's what they had to say:I'm...

The Critic's Guide to Bad Vaping Science

The US Surgeon General is releasing a new report on e-cigarettes, and in order to help get people ready to critically assess the information it contains, noted science advocate Clive Bates published a handy guide in plain language that will help you recognize bad vaping science.It's an excellent guide and every vaper and harm reduction advocate should probably have it bookmarked or downloaded. It asks and explains important questions about reported adverse effects from e-cigarettes, such as:"Is...

Vaping and Health: The Science and Evidence to Date

Monday, December 05, 2016

At the center of all the buzz around these no-longer-so-newfangled vaping devices that have been skyrocketing in popularity over the past decade is one very important question that researchers, regulators, manufacturers, distributors, and users have been working hard to answer: what impact does vaping have on human health? This question can also be subdivided into two separate but similarly important questions: "how does the health impact of vaping compare to smoking?", and "how does the health...

E-Cigarette Regulations in Trump's America

Monday, November 14, 2016

There's a lot of speculation right now about whether the FDA deeming regulations for e-cigarettes will remain intact under a Trump presidency. They could be altered, scrapped entirely, or remain just how they are. But of all the ambitious goals Trump has expressed over the past year or so, the e-cigarette issue hasn't been one of them. Not directly, anyways. It's certainly possible that Republican control of the legislative and executive branches could result in the passage of the Cole-Bishop...

Stop Spreading Misinformation About E-Cigarette Explosions

Monday, November 07, 2016

When a particular Samsung product has a defect that causes its batteries to explode or catch fire, the media quickly points out which product it is and that helps consumers stay safe. This is great, and we all appreciate it. However, articles about "e-cigarette explosions" almost never do anything to help consumers stay safe. And most of the time, the article is completely off base and there was actually no e-cigarette involved at all. If an e-cigarette model actually malfunctioned and caused...
