I don't really know which section of the forums this post should go into but I felt I should share this experience and see if it has happened to anyone else.
I was driving home from work today and was vaping out of a hand blown glass tank. A under cover police car pulled up next to me as I was in the middle of vaping and he immediately flicked his lights on and slowed down to get behind me. I pulled over right away and he sat in his car for a minute. I could see him talking into his radio and I assumed he was either calling for back up or calling my tags in. Turns out, he was caling for back up which I will get into later in the story. He then opened his door and hung half way out of his car with his intercom radio in hand. Through the intercom, he instructed me to remove my keys from the ignition and slowly step out of my vehicle with my hands in the air. I did what he said laughing to myself the entire time. Once I was out of the vehicle, he told me to walk backwads to him with my hands on the back of my head. He met me half way between his car and mine and once we met, he put hand cuffs one me. I asked him what all this was about but he wouldn't answer me right away. He just kept on yelling for me to comply (which I was). After he had me handcuffed, he started patting me down and put me in the back of his vehicle. At this time, I see 3 other cop cars speeding up to the scene. He waited for them to start searching my vehicle. At this point, there are 3 cops looking through my car and 1 cop looking at me. No more than 30 seconds into the search, I see the original cop walking back to his car with my favorite mod/tank combo. He opened the rear car door and asked me what it was. I didn't laugh but I kind of shook my head smiling at the same time while asking him if that is why he pulled me over. He of course replied YES! I explained to him exactly what it was and he immediately told the other two cops to stop searching my car. He un-handcuffed me faster than he put them on and started apologizing about the whole incident. About a minute later, I had 4 cops surrounding me while I explained exactly what it was and how it worked. One of the cops was a smoker and very intrigued as to what I was saying. I screwed on a regular cartomizer I had in my pocket filled with my favorite tobacco juice and told him to try it. To my surprise, he did and replied....."Damn this is good, I can get into this". I told him that mods were pretty much e-cigs on steroids and that he could start with a e-cig that is pretty much the same size as a analog. I had a couple Vapor4Life business cards in my pocket so I handed him one and he said him and his wife were going to be visiting the site tonight. I tried telling him about the forum but he said he didn't even know what a forum was. He said he wasn't to internet savvy and that his wife handles all of the online stuff.
This incident ended up having a happy ending. I think I converted two more people which makes me feel good whenever I do. Hopefully he fallows through with it. In the end, we all got a good laugh out of this but I gotta admit, I was pretty scared at first. Turns out, I didn't have any outstanding warrants.
