This month brings about a lot of interesting news on the horizon about the vape industry so let's do our due diligence to get that squared away.
Perhaps the biggest piece of news from just this last week is that San Fransisco has decided to impose a citywide ban on flavored tobacco products and some smokeless products like vape pens. It's thought that the measure could be spreading to other ballots across the state.
The question remains as to whether other California cities will follow, and whether this ban on flavored tobacco products will curb the use of e-cigarettes among young people.
Taking our dive into the news a bit further:
Speaking of vape subjects you should be aware of. The hashtag: #vapetricks is the gift that keeps on giving. It's loaded with new posts constantly so I wouldn't recommend folowing the tag itself but it's always fun to check up on. My favorite new Instagram star may be old news to some but I'm enamored and constantly stoked when this person comes up on my feed now. I'm of course talking about Jelly.goddess:
There's always tricks here that look like something I'd want to attempt because they seem so easy, but in fact, these take some skill. It's really a lot of creative cloud chasing that most of us might have to work at a bit to get on the same page.
From that profile I seemed to have found VapeModels, this is a profile that specializes in product modeling and while that may not sound interesting on the surface, there's a lot of great tricks on this page too. It also gives you a pretty broad idea of how many vape brands are out there. It's a wide world and these LA urbanites are trying to shake things up.
The next thing that really caught my eye was the Harry Potter themed E-liquid called ButtaBeer and it's designed with near copyright infringing likeness to the franchise itself. I was mesmerized that this existed.
Apparently, it's very popular. Also a product of Vlabs Miami. Looking into their brand was really interesting and featured great photos of products and some interesting flavor profiles that I rarely see.
Let' wrap this up with one last thing for the Vape Scene:
CBS reported a huge morning time story yesterday on the e-cigarette product JUUL. They went on to insinuate that the JUUL flavored products were harmful and were hooking teens on the products. We wrote up a comparative article regarding JUUL and covered some of the information we know today about the vaping device. Check it out here.
