Prohibitionist Antics Derail Real Quit Attempts

Here’s one of those things that should surprise absolutely no one.  We’ve all assumed that the propaganda that is spread around by Big Prohibition would put some people off the idea of e-cigarettes and keep them in the warm embrace of Big Tobacco.  Apparently, now there’s actual proof.  Professor Siegel posted a story on his […]

Lava: Magma Clone by Infinite Review

Ok, I admit the title of this RBA review is just a little bit awkward and wordy.  Mostly comes from the fact this is a clone of a rebuildable dripping atomizer from Paradigm called the Magma. They’ve wisely started calling the device the Lava instead of the Magma. Infinite is the maker and does a […]


In Taipei, eCig Sellers Pose as Cigarette Sellers to Stay out of Trouble

Really weird things happen when you ban e-cigarettes.  The government in Taipei were shocked to find that e-cigarettes were so readily available online, and that not all the sellers lived in that city.  Having a complete ban also means you can pretty much say whatever you want about the products, who’s going to complain? While […]


The challenge of selling a controversial product

Blu (UK) Laments Term “e-Cigarette”

The Guardian posted an interesting article in its small biz section recently.  The article focused on companies that make controversial products and some of the difficulties they faced because of those products.  It turns out some won’t even get past the surface and will bolt before you can even explain the process.  The story included […]


Case Made Against eCigs More Like ADHD Episode

Kentucky.com just posted an article that is incredibly scattered.  The article starts out to claim that cigarettes are just as safe as e-cigarettes.  It’s essentially a misdirection pulled off in the most ham-fisted and awkward manner possible. First the article lists many of the problems with actual cigarettes.  Then it regurgitates some of the typical […]

There is no safe way to smoke

For public health, let them vape cake

Personal Preference of Those in Power Harming Health

An opinion piece in the New York Daily News took to task that city’s attempt to ban all flavors.  The core argument behind the ban is that only kids must like flavors.  It’s the same argument that some aging senators put forward as well.  The piece takes apart the notion that kids will vape and then go […]


WHO Congrulates Self on Banning Press, Un-mandated Tax and Protecting Cigarettes

Oh, lookie here.  The WHO put out a press release patting themselves on the back for their “brave” actions at their little party in Moscow last week. The release started out insinuating that concerned individuals and grass roots movements were some kind of Big Tobacco plot.  After that, they were quite pleased that they’ve resolved […]

Tobacco Companies to Do Everything Possible to Reduce E-Cigarette Regulations: Watchdog

Watchdog Clearly Not Watching, Makes Stuff Up

In what is likely to be one of many, many attacks on e-cigarettes spouted by assorted groups that attended the WHO’s little shindig in Moscow this week, a watchdog group belies its complete ignorance of how Big Tobacco is handling e-cigarettes.  The news article screams that Big T is going to do everything in its […]


WHO Publishes its List of Demands Against eCigs, Wants Advocates Banished

A publication from the super-duper double secret WHO meeting in Moscow has made its way to the Library of Congress.  The paper includes a list of regulations the organization thinks are reasonable precautions.  Most are what you’d expect, flavor bans, use bans.  But my absolute favorite would be codifying the classification of vapers as “front […]


Twitter “astroturfing” undermining public health initiatives? Say it ain’t so!

Have an Opinion Against Public Health? Astroturfer

Having run out of valid concerns about e-cigarettes.  Actually, never having had any to begin with, public health has moved on to complaining about those who dare defy them.  There’s apparently been a study (read somebody got grant money for) examining the backlash Chicago got for essentially making up stuff about e-cigarettes. In that study […]


Storied UK Tobacconist Clears Space for Vapor

When you think of UK tobacco shops, Davidoff probably comes to mind. At least I think it does, I always liked their cigars anyway. Getting back to the point, that company is apparently seeing the future. A future that involves less cigarettes and more e-cigarettes.  According to a press release, the company is dropping several […]

Phila. councilwoman wants to tax e-cigarettes

Philly Looks at eCig Tax Cash Grab Scheme

Prohibitionists like to talk about addiction and increasing taxes to keep undesirable things out of the hands of kids.  That argument is very thin, and one council woman in Philadelphia decided to strip the veneer right off that premise.  She’s posed an incredibly crippling tax on e-cigarette products using the justification of “we need the […]

Kids at Vape Lounges, Asking for Trouble?

I recently saw a post on Facebook or one of those things people are into on the Internet these days. It was a bunch of shots for a vape lounge opening somewhere in Middle America.  In that image, there was the obligatory flat screen TV and XBox 360 setup. So far things sound normal, right?  What […]


WHO’s at the FCTC? Not You

THR, Libertarian and vaping activists, particularly those in Europe have been Tweeting up a frenzy today.  The reason?  The World Health Organization is holding a little get together in Moscow. One which has become an increasingly exclusive event. The exclusivity comes from the fact that the body that will be dictating the UN’s approach to […]
