2 Examples Of Sketchy Legislation That Kills Vaping

vape legislation

Slowly but surely, regulation is starting to have a grip around vaping. Although these regulations supposedly are for the greater good, you can’t help but question if these regulations are truly justified.

What is fueling these regulations which only harm current vapers and smokers who would like to try vaping?

Further questioning has revealed some highly suspicious moves in legislature that do nothing but criminalize vaping that are punishable by fines. Here are a couple of examples:

  1. The Fergus Falls City Council Fallout – A city council in Minnesota voted for vaping to be redefined as a tobacco product. This means no more vaping inside private owned spaces, including vape shops.

The council made the decision and at the same time ignored the benefits of vaping. Vape supporters argue that the new vaping regulations discourage people from trying vaping as a healthier alternative to cigarettes. A study published by Public Health England concludes that vaping is 95% safer than cigarettes. A Royal College of Physicians’ study found that vaping has the potential to eliminate all disease caused by smoking and encouraged the access and use of these products to smokers.

These new regulations also put a strain on vape businesses because it bans vape products from being used indoors, and yes this includes vape shops. How will business owners be able to show and instruct their customers on how to properly use vape products? Looks like the regulations weren’t well thought of either.

Of course this is just one example of how vaping regulations get passed without any serious thought, just fueled by emotions and misleading info.

We have another sketchy vaping law that was recently passed, but is now being investigated by the FBI.

2. The FBI Investigates Indiana Regarding Vaping Law – Okay so here’s what happened. Indiana vaping law that was recently passed has raised some questions from vape advocates, some politicians, and the Federal government.

Dozens of e-juice makers were kicked out of operating in the state when they failed to get certified before the June 30 deadline. The problem was there was only ONE security firm that was authorized to give certification.

The passing of this law has led the FBI to believe there were certain individuals in legislature who might have benefited from the regulations.

It’s an obvious war going on against vaping, and unless we vapers do something about it, the day will come where vaping will be looked down on like cigarettes.

Let’s not wait for that to happen. Join a vape advocacy. Contact your representative regarding vape laws where you live. We still live in a democracy where people can overturn regulations that they feel doesn’t benefit the community. The fight starts and ends with you!

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
