Vaping Good News: the Joyful July Issue
View this email in your browser

Okay, so the Great British Summer has gone missing; the House of Lords pro-vaping vote fell through; English football has plummeted to an all-time low; the United Kingdom isn’t (united) thanks to the EU referendum, and our little island’s leadership seems to have taken its collective bat home… BUT – and as you can see it’s a very big ‘BUT’ – there are still some excellent reasons to remain cheerful if you are a vaper.

So chin up chaps, here’s the Vaping Good News…

Where in the world can you vape?

With Hong Kong making it a crime to vape, Qatar confiscating gear at the airport, and Thailand being uncharacteristically tough on e-cigs, we were going to give you a list of top holiday destinations that aren’t so misguided. Like the Czech Republic and the Philippines, both of which have no e-cig regulations. Yet.

But not only do the restrictions vary dramatically according to country, but also the laws seem to be in a state of perpetual flux. Some countries don’t sell e-liquid but will allow you to bring your own. While others, like Japan and New Zealand, only allow zero nicotine vaping. And be careful, because in countries like the USA and China, it all depends on which state you’re visiting.

Check before you go

So our best advice is: check local laws (including airline regulations) before you go. Crucially, make sure the information is right up to date. And wherever you decide to go, have a great time!


Yippee! E-cigs don’t encourage teens to smoke

A recent study published in the US ‘Journal of Pediatrics’ claiming that teens who use e-cigs are six times more likely to start smoking, is being damned as bad science.

“The authors misinterpret their findings,” explains Peter Hajek, Director of the Tobacco Dependence Research Unit at Queen Mary University of London. “Like several previous studies of this type, this one just shows that people who try things, try things.”

More vaping = less smoking. Fact.

“To assess whether e-cigarette experimentation by adolescents encourages smoking, one has to examine whether an increase in e-cigarette experimentation is accompanied by an increase in smoking on the population level.”

Based on the data available, Hajek stipulates that “as e-cigarette experimentation increased, smoking rates in young people have gone down. In fact, the decline in youth smoking over the past few years has been faster than ever before.”


Are US vapers like UK vapers?

Our transatlantic colleagues at V2 held a survey in May polling 300 American vapers.

If e-cigs were banned, 49% said they would go back to tobacco, 28% believed they would stop using nicotine or tobacco products altogether, and 17% said they would use a smoking cessation method, such as nicotine patches, mints and gum.

Interestingly, 74% believe e-cigs should be regulated. We wonder if UK vapers would be so in favour of regulation?
