Looking to Vape? Stay Out of San Francisco
If you're a vaping enthusiast, you'll likely take that love with you everywhere that you go. It's always refreshing to see someone with unbridled joy and love for e-cigarettes, but there are places where it won't go down so well. One such place is in San Francisco.
Our obligation to report on the goings-on of the vaping world means that we will be diving into this story headfirst. Looking at why you might not get a warm welcome in the area if you're a vaping fan, and what implications this will have for the industry, let's get started.
The Ban Hammer is Swung
The vaping community has taken a massive hit in recent times, as San Francisco is going to be the first city to ban vaping outright. Specifically, they're outlawing sales, both in shops and online. The move is one which has seen unanimous approval from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and goes into effect any day now.
Dennis Herrera, the City Attorney, speaks about the 'reasoned approach to the new law and says that 'It doesn't ban e-cigarettes outright. It simply says that if a tobacco product is required to have FDA approval to be on the market, it can't be sold in San Francisco until it receives that approval.'.
What Does This Mean for Vaping?
So what does this mean for the vaping world? What impacts will it have? Well, this is naturally not a good thing. People can only learn about vaping if they have the tools available to get them. However, if you make it so that someone doesn't have the resources like shops to get access to vaping materials, their chance of enjoying them goes down by a long way.
It does, furthermore, say a lot about attitudes to vaping and how they currently are. People blame vaping for the rise of teen smoking, and so there is a crackdown in America, mainly to try and stop it.
Can We Do Anything?
It may seem like there is a lot that can not be done to overtime the vaping ban, but we can always continue to push the reputation of vaping back up. You can also make sure that you disprove any of the rumours with facts, and try and promote a more positive image overall, despite the challenges. It’s still not easy to do, but it is worth it if we can convince people that this decision is the wrong one.
To conclude, while the ban is needlessly pointless and is going to impact the world of vaping, it doesn't necessarily have to be the end of the world. Some things can be done, and all it takes is for people to keep pushing for vaping to remain a positive force.
