I came across a video telling vapers, particularly those situated in California, what they SHOULD do in order to prevent any new laws restricting us here from vaping.
This happened right after a hearing on the proposed law regarding vaping in Cali. The speakers were Doug, an owner of a couple of e-liquid companies and Mark, who is the co-president of the southern California chapter of SFATA (Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association) which happens to be the world’s largest vape products organization.
What Doug and Mark is doing in the video is explaining how laws get passed, and what we the vapers of California need to do in order to keep this thing we love going.
Bottom line is, we the consumers NEED to contact our local legislators regarding this. We need to let them know how vaping has changed our lives for the better. Not only us vapers, but also non-vapers like friends and family, people that can vouch for us.
What we also need to show is that the vaping community has economic and voting power, which will also make our legislators think twice about messing with us (lol). What’s sad is that the “health and well-being” argument is not a good enough argument to save vaping in California.
We need to let the lawmakers know who we are, that we have buying power and we will not vote for any politician who is trying to outlaw vaping.
I find it sad however that the governing body can’t and won’t make a decision based on the fact that vaping is a new technology that can help people get off cigarettes.
So call, e-mail, or write you local legislator. We need tens of thousands of responses from us and the people around us according to Doug and Mark. We need to let our politicians know that we are really serious about vaping and we want it to stay in California!
