Take Action – Send a Message!

 

In advance of any hearing, please take this time to prepare your remarks to the committee.

  • Plan to speak for 3 minutes or less & Practice your presentation.
  • State how long you were a smoker, how long you’ve been smoke-free, and how vapor products helped you.
  • How important are e-liquid flavors to you remaining smoke-free?
    • Did flavored products help you lose your taste for smoking?
    • 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?
    • Would you purchase outside of the city/state?
    • Would you feel pressured to return to smoking?
  • Review the Meeting Info Guide here.

 

**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.)

@eaze Vaping is indeed the future.
Smoke has carbon, and is responsible for most lung problems resulting from combustion.
I suggest investing in a GOOD herb vape, at least $100-200 vape.
The others simply combust the herbs.
So many ppl dislike vaping bcuz they tried a bad device.

@Kelpalots @DJColonelCorn A meta-study (I think around 2012) estimated that at the time ~17,000 people/year (in the US) died from complications arising out of internal gastrointestinal bleeding events thought to have been caused by NSAIDs.
(Thanks to Lightning on Disqus for this)
Yes, @Kelpalots, they do

@KnowNicotine Vaping, whether done by a teen human or adult, has been shown to be practically harmless. While crying "Save The Children" they banned e-cigs, but not tobacco, in San Francisco recently. Saving the teens from the awful vape. Yeah. They also claim adults do not like flavors. Sure.

@KnowNicotine Not happy with this teaser.
It's about, and labelled as, the "teen vaping 'epidemic'".
I'd rather my teen vape than smoke and get disease.
This is not why I donated. This 'teen epidemic' is their excuse to ban vaping.
"Save The Children!" they cry. When it's really about taxes.

@Kpascuch My old home town has a lot to learn.
First came the flavor ban, now an outright ban on all e-cigs.
I can't believe at this stage of the game we're going backwards.
After all the progress we've made.
My DOCTOR even, has finally decided she approves of VAPING as she can see results https://t.co/OUcWPEelfn

@Kpascuch Sad.
I was just in Oakland, California.
They couldn't sell me vape liquid.
Of course, the tobacco was readily available.
As an ex-smoker I find that insulting. https://t.co/UAvfpOmJYO
