Politics and Vaping

vaping vaping blogs

No matter where your politics lie, when it comes to vaping, the candidate that supports the industry is Republican Donald Trump. This should come as no surprise as most Republicans are all for capitalism, which supports less regulation of businesses, even those that have pretty much moved over seas. Although, to say that Trump supports vaping, or is pro-vape, is not exactly accurate as he hasn't stood up and declared an alliance. Although, Trump does support Duncan Hunter, a California congressman who does and has been given the moniker, "The Vaping Congressman," which could indicate support by association.

In the Democrats corner is Hillary Clinton. Again she personally hasn't expressed a personal view regarding vaping, but most likely won't support the industry. This view is supported by her support of regulating big business. Additionally, Clinton supports children's health, education and other social programs that don't fit with a supporter of vaping. In all likelihood, Clinton will be for stricter regulations of the nicotine based product as it doesn't have the FDA stamp of approval as a less noxious alternative to smoking tobacco. The truth is that there simply isn't enough research on vaping for anyone to form an informed opinion regarding vaping and health.

While most agree that Trump is most likely to support vaping over Clinton, Trump doesn't have the support of the vaping community with some informal surveys showing they actually support Clinton over Trump. This would indicate that other political issues are more important to those that vape and that they feel fairly secure in the future of vaping. One survey showed that most smokers are registered Democrats, along with former smokers who have turned to vaping to reduce the fumes cigarettes produce.

So if Republican candidate Trump scores the coveted seat of the President of the United States, passing vaping regulations that may hurt the industry is probably not going to be on his to do list. However, many fear that Democratic candidate Clinton most likely would pass some form of regulatory controls on the industry. These fears aren't without foundation as California passed legislation in May 2016 that went into effect on June 9 and bans public vaping in places where smoking is already banned according to the LA TImes.

Another indication that if Clinton wins the Office of Presidency she will most likely not support the vaping industry is the fact that most democrats feel that the industry should be as highly regulated as the tobacco industry. With many large industries holding a vested interest in seeing the vaping industry slowed, lobbyists from tobacco companies and pharmaceutical companies are swarming Capitol Hill in an effort to bring on more regulations for the fledgling vaping industry, which could be catastrophic for a business just getting its footing.

If vaping ends up as the tobacco industry did, with control and regulations coming from the federal level rather than with each state, it could have far reaching consequences for the vaping industry.

Safely Enjoy The Lingering Days of Summer

e cig juice e juice best e juice vaping

End of SummerAre you looking for a way to enjoy the last long days of the summer season? If you want to relax and have some fun in the sun, but also want to incorporate vaping, we have got you covered. A few tips for being safe will make sure you keep yourself happy out there. We can also offer some insight on vape juice flavors that are the best this time of year. So let's get going!

Safety is important and nobody wants to end up in a bad situation because of information they just don't have. That's why we want to ensure you know what's cool to do during the season and what might cause a few issues. These relate especially to vapers and are important to be aware of so read on.

The first tip we have is to avoid leaving your vaping products out in the sunlight. Having sun beating down on your equipment can lead to a significant drop in quality with your lithium batteries. And even worse than that, if they get extraordinarily hot they can rupture and explode. Definitely not something you want to deal with on a road trip to the beach. If you gotta carry your batteries, make sure you put them somewhere cool, like wrapped up in a towel in your cooler. And if you have a device that uses a variable voltage, kick it down a little as e-liquid tends to thin when it's warmer than usual.

Another problem you can run into when it's summer is feeling effects from the heat on your e-juice itself. At just over 100 degrees the juice will begin to break down which can cause some really unwanted things to occur. Think color change, flavor change, and more. Overheated juice is going to taste gross and be more likely to clog up your tank so be careful out there! Stick your juices in that cooler or somewhere else that isn't as open to direct sunlight.

Now that you're ready to head out there and know the best safety tips, let's get to the fun party. The vaping! There are a number of flavors that are great in the summer and some you might not think about.

Tropical flavors can be really fun and remind you of the beach or a past vacation. Fruity flavors also tend to feel lighter in your mouth and lungs, which can make you feel cooler. Some flavors that come highly suggested are pina colada, lemonade, pineapple coconut, blueberry, and melon. You can also grab some flavors that remind you of sweet alcoholic drinks, which might give you that feel of cool that can be nice nowadays. Another flavor to try includes juice with a minty or menthol, as this can be refreshing on your taste buds on a hot day.

No matter what device you use, what flavor you like, and what you plan to do for the last days of summer – follow the rule to keep it cool and you'll be good. Enjoy those moments in the sun with friends and family enjoying life and don't forget to vape!


What Our Kids Will Say About Our Pop Culture

e cig juice vaping

Cool DadDo you remember your parents saying something along the lines of back in my day we didn't do things like that? At some point in time or another, everyone has heard about what things were like when their parents were growing up. Things aren't going to be much different for your children. You will find yourself talking about all of the things that you grew up with when you were a kid and what the times were like. Then, you will notice your children making the same faces you made when your parents talked about things back in the good old days.

Sure, times are changing and what might be cool now isn't going to be so cool when your kids are in their late teens and early twenties. You can almost guarantee they are going to look at you like you are some type of a looney bird. After all, how could the cha-cha slide ever be cool? No one possibly dances like that anymore. Today, it's all about twerking and throwing your body around in such a way it looks like you are going to break your back.

Then there are the television shows that you grew to know and love. If you were to ask your kids what they know about the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, they are going to say who are you talking about? While Will Smith was widely known for his role in the show, that isn't what your kids are going to remember him for. They are going to remember him for any one of the countless movies he did today. Kids today aren't watching the same type of television you watched growing up. Just like you didn't watch the shows your parents did. The values and lessons behind the shows are constantly changing and evolving, but not necessarily in a good way.

Oh, and we can't forget about the music industry. While Mariah Carey was a beloved pop icon for so long, she has dwindled to the back pages in comparison to the music gurus that are entering the music scene today. Your kids aren't going to want to listen to your slow, easy-listening music. They want music that is loud, full of bass and words that you can't understand half the time. Well, most of them anyway.

However, there is one thing from culture today that is going to remain a time-honored tradition: vaping. Your children will enjoy being able to sit outside on the back porch and gaze up at the stars as you enjoy a vape together. Who knows? You might even find a flavor that you both love. Vaping is a great way to unwind from the stress of the day and it gives you something that you can both enjoy. While some things are destined to go out of style and grow old, there will always be those things that will continue being loved and cherished for years to come. Vaping just happens to be one of the things that your children will be able to appreciate years from now and even when they have their own children.
