If the ordinance passes, Chicago would become the first major city to regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products.

Topaz-colored e-cig supplies for November

Happy November! Autumn has officially arrived in the Midwest. November is my favorite month for a few reasons. First, I absolutely love fall, for the leaves changing colors, the crisp air, and cozy sweaters. Secondly, it’s my birthday month.

Well here at Vapor4Life we have nearly every color under the (yellow) sun! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

No smoke breaks, only Grand Theft Auto

It was 11:45 PM and was freezing. “What the hell am I doing out this late?” I asked myself. Oh yeah! The biggest gaming release of the year was last night! Finally, my wait was over for Grand Theft Auto V. But the wait last night was much longer than expected. Apparently, some other people heard of the biggest game of this century, and I was one of 400 people at my local GameStop. Great.

Ecigs aren’t dangerous, people are just negligent

[Image courtesy of http://dailym.ai/15zWPoQ]

Recently, many of you may have seen a new story out of Atlanta, GA, about a woman who was the unfortunate victim of an e-cigarette explosion. Luckily, she was not harmed and the only damage to her home was cosmetic. I read this story and I started to think, is the e-cigarette really to blame, or is negligence at hand? Don’t get me wrong, no one should feel like their life is in danger from vaping, but I’m sure we’re missing parts of this story.
