Advocacy and Vaping - The Rising Industry Under Threat

The e-commerce vaporizer market is relatively new to me, and I've learned a lot as I've built this site. One of the foremost lessons: there's a ton of institutional resistance to vaping. Compared of other e-commerce fields, of which I've had nearly a decade of experience in, the barriers to entry are astronomical. Just setting up a simple e-commerce store can cost thousands of dollars and weeks of clearing thru the debris of regulation.

There is a lot of scientific uncertainty about the health impact that vaping can have on humans, it's a new industry, and it will take time to properly study the impacts. That said, it's hard to argue that vaping isn't a better alternative to smoking cigarettes, despite the Tobacco Industry sponsored studies that often paint a different picture. As we see looming bans, restrictions and new taxation, I urge any vape enthusiast joins the Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternatives Association. I strongly support their fight, and they're clearly one of the best resources out there to join the fight.
