Tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 26) Chicago’s City Council is going to introduce an ordinance that would expand the city’s regulation of tobacco products to include ecigs. It would prohibit their use in smoke-free areas. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Will Burns and Alderman Edward Burke are backing the legislation. If the ordinance passes, Chicago would become the first major city to regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products.
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. November’s birthstone is topaz, which for all you non-artists – that means yellow. What does yellow have to do with electronic cigarettes? Well here at Vapor4Life we have nearly every color under the (yellow) sun! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
Are you allowed to vape at work? If you can, good for you! That’s great that your employer is smart enough to realize that he/she’s saving time and money by allowing you to use your ecig. If you’re not as fortunate, I hope that you’ll be able to change your employer’s mind after giving him/her some info. That is, if vaping is not banned by your local government!
The second annual World Vaping Day is here! This worldwide holiday was created to raise awareness about the benefits of ecigs. This day is all about becoming an advocate for electronic cigarettes as a smoking alternative. You can be an advocate just by helping people understand what ecigs are and how they work. If you really want to make a difference, you can even contact your legislators and government agencies to urge them to write policies that favor vaporizers.
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.
As a vaper, I’ve been approached by many people who come from both sides of the “e-cig spectrum.” You know, the “naysayers” who think this is a fad or on the opposite end, people who praise me for making the switch. Some people just genuinely want to know what e-cigs are really all about. Well, I’m here to tell you MY version of what I say to anyone who asks me about my vape.
