UK City Council Wants To Become “Vape User Friendly”

Bradford town hall

Do you ever wonder when the day will come (or if it will ever come) when vaping is given the recognition it deserves as a life saving device that helps people quit smoking? While those days seem distant from now, some good news is coming out from across the globe.

While we Americans are still caught up with finding out what is dangerous in e-liquid and what regulations should we place on vaping, the city of Bradford in the UK is planning on lifting some guidelines they have when it comes to vaping.

Some council members have asked for more leniency when it came to restricting vaping around the premises of the city council.

Now that vaping has been proven and recognized in the U.K. as a 95% safer alternative to smoking, what is the use for being strict on such an innocent and well-meaning product?

Councillor Simon Cooke, who himself is a former smoker, has led the charge to make changes on the vaping restrictions. Seems like Mr. Cooke is also a vaper who would like to enjoy a nice vape every once in a while at work.

Whether the Conservatives get their way or not is anyone’s guess, but it shows the polar opposites of how vaping is viewed in the U.K. and U.S.

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!
