Recent E-Cigarette and Vaping Media Attention
Over the last few weeks vaping and e-cigarettes have been front and center in the news following the tragic deaths and multiple hospitalizations of some of our American cousins.

It should also be noted that despite what many industry people have said, vaping has not proven to be a safer alternative to cigarette smoking and the long term effects from vaping are still unknown. If you haven't vaped or smoked before, the best option to not impact your health would be to NEVER START VAPING OR SMOKING in the first place.
This is a critical junction for our industry. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail when it comes to legislation put forward.
