Regulations: Not Necessarily a Bad Thing

When it comes to regulations, vapers aren’t totally against them. Vapers, being modern thinkers, after all, are actually for the most part, pretty much down with regulations that make sense. Age limits to keep minors away… Instituted safety standards that promise purity and safe ingredients… The FDA’s approval on what goes into e-liquid formulas… these kinds of requirements can only do good by the industry, and most vapers who are into quality, are absolutely in favor of them.

What people who support this industry don’t want to see are regulations that unfairly, unnecessarily target the vape community. Requirements that aim to classify electronic cigarettes in with tobacco products, for instance is something no e-smokers want. Both because seeing these money-saving products get taxed the same way as traditional cigarettes is not only wrong, but it is unfair. And also, by categorizing alternative cigarettes the same way may have the effect of continuing the same stigma on e-cigarettes as traditional cigarettes, and it just doesn’t seem fair.

Now, on the subject bans, we’re talking about a whole other animal! Some countries have gone to the extreme level of outright banning e-cigarettes, for all sorts of reasons. Some states, cities, counties, jurisdictions have done the same, or attempted to do the same. In the US at least, it seems rather unconstitutional to ban something that is not proven to be harmful, and that is able to be used within range of modifications. For example, perhaps not allowing e-cigarettes indoors seems reasonable, but still allowing outdoor usage, like traditional cigarettes, would be a  decent compromise to the problem. To outright ban vaping would be a major infraction upon the rights of those who are of legal smoking age, and are not subjecting others to their vapor.

E-Cigarette regulations continue to be a hot topic for discussion, and an arena where things are constantly changing. In the meantime, until things are set in stone, we certainly hope for the best possible outcomes in this industry! So far, the FDA has moved cautiously, aiming to appease all sides, and choosing not to make major decisions without definitive information. Vapers are not at all totally anti-regulation, and hopefully we will continue to see things moving in an open, safe, courteous, and justified direction!

How Awesome Are E-Cigs? Here’s a Quick List!

So by now, you’ve got to know all about e-cigs. What they do, why people love what they do, and why more and more smokers are choosing to go after vapor and ditch the smoke. And as awesome as these products are, here is a list of all the reasons they make smoking so much more enjoyable sans smoke.

-Lower Cost: E-cigs can save you so much money. Think thousands of dollars every year. It’s money you’ll notice you’re saving on a weekly basis.

-No Tar: Tobacco tar is just atrocious. It accumulates upon everything it comes into contact with. Your teeth, the walls in your home, your lungs… and it’s loaded with toxic components.

-No Smell: Cigarettes smell nasty, and they make you smell even worse. E-cigarettes are like a breath of fresh, clean air, with no smell at all.

-Easy to Use Everywhere: E-cigarettes are loved for their ultra-portable handiness. They can be used undetected in countless places, and their sleek design enables stealthy vaping anytime you need it.

-More Fun: Hey, it counts! E-cigarettes are undoubtedly fun to use! Big vapor, cloud chasing, no smell, great flavors equals a good time!

-Stylish: Style points all the time! Electronic cigarettes are loved for their modern looks and fashionable design. Vapor smoking should not have to look lame like traditional smoking!

-Cleaner Conscience: Tobacco is a nightmare; e-cigs allow you to escape the stigmas by going smoke and tobacco-free. You will totally feel better knowing you aren’t filling your lungs with tar, smoking tobacco laced with chemicals, or breathing in smoke.

-More Environmentally Friendly: By avoiding tobacco cigarettes, you are standing up to the environmental harm they cause. Cigarette butts are the single most polluted item in the world; why contribute to the butts that end up out there in the natural world? Choosing e-cigs means you are choosing a reusable product that creates less waste.

-More Convenient: Who doesn’t need more convenience in their lives? E-cigarettes offer just that, and then some! We’re all looking for more efficiency, and by switching to vapor, you get a whole lot of it.

Summer TO-DO List

Summer To Do List with South Beach SmokeSummer is almost here; the countdown is on, and we are 6 days out from the year’s most enthralling season! So, whatever shall we make of these impending long days, short nights, and summer vibes that lend themselves to carefree jaunts and endless fun? Here is our Summer To-Do list, because we are big believers in packing as much excitement into every moment as possible!

Vape-Cation:

Near or far, summer calls for va-cays! Whether to locations tropical or chilly, white sand beaches, or mountains covered in forests, bring along those vape pens, and load up on delicious liquids

Vape Fests: Summer music festivals are rad occasions so wear that e-cig or vaporizer around your neck, and party your tail off. And, since one of the biggest draws to the festival scene is rocking some killer fashion, we can’t think of a better, more practical accessory than our e-cigarette lanyards.

Embrace the Little Things: Like vape-relaxation. Singing along to some great tunes at the top of your lungs, watching the sunset, partying with your favorite people, grilling outdoor dinners, and doing it all with a smile on your face, as you realize how good you actually have it. A calm moment plus your e-cigarette in hand can be the equivalent of perfect. Relaxing is a state of mind, and what could beat winding down while vaping?

Summer Flavor-a-thon: And, if you are unable to actually get away, we suggest trying some new flavors, perhaps some intense blends, for an escape momentarily via the awesome deliciousness! Perhaps make it a mission to try a new flavor every week, in an effort to escape the doldrums of boring flavor-dom?

Put Down the Phone: And live life a little more with less screen in your face! I know we’re all guilty of this one, so here’s a reminder to everyone, (self included) that you can’t be fully in the moment if you’re staring at a box. Let’s all do our best to seize the day, everyday this summer, even if it includes not much more than pints of gelato and vaping on the couch!
