Don’t let Chicago ban ecigs!

City of Chicago seal

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.

I have been to all three VaperCons that have taken place thus far. Continue reading

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.

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

What’s up vapers?! BHam is back with some tips to help you find the perfect vape you’ve been looking for. I’ve been vaping for over two years now (and feel damn good about it too), but it hasn’t always been the smoothest of sailing. Not because I didn’t  have great gear to start with, I just wasn’t using any of it for my needs.

Please let me vape on the job!

Nope, not smoke, it’s vapor!

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.
