San Francisco Flavor Ban
San Francisco is one of several municipalities in California that are considering prohibiting the sale of flavored vapor products. This is a policy movement and it is a very real threat. We know that proponents of these bans are well funded and have the support of respected organizations.
Big tobacco and pharmacy industry will do anything they can to stop or stagnate the vapor industry in whatever possible way they can. This new threat from Big pharmacy industry by introducing legislation that looks to ban flavored e-juice is a downright dirty way to deter the vapor industry. Imagine if all e-juices did not have any flavor? Would anyone even then bother to vape e-juice that doesn’t have any taste? Imagine if our food that we eat on a daily basis became tasteless, people would definitely be eating a whole lot less since eating food would seem like a tedious task.
The vapor industry is such a volatile industry right now because it is bringing innovation to an industry where there has been no innovation or advancement for over the past century. Take a look at how fast vaping is catching on, big tobacco uses celebs, huge TV advertisements, and many other forms of advertising to send a message to people that smoking is a cool thing, but vaping is still outpacing cigarette sales despite any major marketing. Think about it, people are moving away from cigarettes and moving onto vaping because it is healthier, cheaper, and it is saving many lives from the unhealthy lifestyle that comes with smoking cigarettes.
