Flavour Bans Come Down Everywhere
The reputation of an electronic cigarette will vary from one country to the next. It is not our intention to deliberately report negative news. However, we feel that it is appropriate for you to be aware of everything happening in the world which is related to our community and our industry.
That is why we feel it is important to report on the happenings in America, where new legislation has been passed which will crack down on the flavours of electronic cigarettes available for people to enjoy. Let’s take a look at what’s going on, and explore the current situation with the community across the pond.
Banning of E-Liquids?
As you’re no doubt aware, one of the main appealing factors of a vaping device is that it comes in a variety of different flavours. These range from fruity to popular desert foods, and many people attribute the success of the product to this variation of flavour. However, it has also been cited as being the reason why an epidemic has begun in America involving teenage smoking. Consequently, New York and Michigan have both agreed to ban flavours.
At the time of writing, vendors in these two states have a little under two weeks to either sell their products or remove them from the shelves. In the event that they do not comply, they could face a fine or the loss of their trading license.
What Does This Mean?
The potential ramifications for a decision of this nature could be quite catastrophic for the industry in those two states. The problem is a good deal of the success involving electronic cigarettes is the flavour. It’s a novelty, and something which people quite heavily desire. When you remove that element of choice, you are severely limiting the number of options that people have, and in some instances turning people off to the idea of buying the products completely.
Those health experts who say that this will help to curb the epidermic of teenage smoking are correct. However, a side consequence of this is that they will also be responsible for the loss of many customers and supporters of the industry. A large number of businesses will soon suffer severe financial decline, assuming that they can’t even keep their business alive at all.
In summary, this is a very disturbing news piece. We sympathise with our colleagues, and wish that this was not the way forward. However, there is in this instance very little that can be done. The will of the people must be imposed, and if there has been sufficient public support to make the proposal and legislation reached this point, the authorities have no choice but to yield. Thankfully, we are not subject to the same restrictions and bans, which is why if you are looking for high-quality vaping supplies, you would be wise to use our resources. Infinite Vapour has a selection of different options for you to choose from, and promises a range of kits, mods, accessories and other optional extra perks.
