    • Did the variety of flavored e-liquid inspire you to give vaping a try?
  • What would you do if flavored e-liquid was no longer available?
    • Would you make your own?

**IMPORTANT**

San Francisco is one of several municipalities in California that are considering prohibiting the sale of flavored vapor products. This is a policy movement and it is a very real threat. We know that proponents of these bans are well funded and have the support of respected organizations. That said, there is no reason to think that “it can’t happen here.”

(Based in Northern California, The Vapor Ninja is particularly concerned about this issue and so we’ve posted this call to action. -ed.)
