Vapor Friendly Secret Santa is Where it’s At

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Monday 1 December 2014 6:05 pm

How do vapers get into the holiday spirit? Well, one way is to take part in a vapor-friendly Secret Santa gift exchange. This holiday favorite has been connecting vapers for the past several years. The premise is the same as a traditional Secret Santa gift exchange. You join together with others who want to participate, set a price limit and a deadline to purchase and send the gift and then you start planning. Many a vaper has made connections with other vapor lovers and received a gift that made their holiday.

Vapor Friendly Secret Santa is Where its AtOne of the best things about this idea is that it puts vapers in touch with other e cigarette users from around the nation. In addition to possibly making a new friend, you might just come upon a mod, atomizer or juice blend that you never would have heard of if you had not participated. There is so much craftsmanship involved in the vapor community that it is next to impossible to keep up with all of the designs and devices out there. Being matched with someone from half way across the country is a great way to end up with a custom piece from a local modder or manufacturer that you might not have had access to otherwise.  Even if you join a locally based gift exchange, you still stand a chance of coming across something rare. On top of all of that it’s a great way to kick off the holidays, vapor style.

How to Find a Vapor Friendly Secret Santa Gift Exchange

If you are thinking local and want to expand beyond your immediate friends, we would recommend visiting your local vape shop. Their management may be very open to the idea of helping to organize a gift exchange via their social media presence and email list. Their staff will also have a ton of great ideas for unique vapor-friendly gifts. If you own or run a vape shop this could be a great way to boost traffic in your store and to connect with your customers. It might even result in a few sales. Either way, it is good for your local vape community.

If you are looking to match up with vapers from around the nation then the internet is the place to look. You can find others who are interested in taking part in a Secret Santa exchange on Reddit and the Electronic Cigarette Forum.  Most of these gift exchanges use This site simplifies organizing the gift exchange, setting a price limit and deadline, and can even match up participants for you. From a user standpoint you can create a wish list that lets your Secret Santa know specifically what you are interested in, or that points them in the right direction. We would recommend going for the surprise and simply using specific products as examples of what you like. On the other hand you can add devices that you already have, with notes, so that you don’t end up being gifted something that is already in your collection. We do have to offer a warning for those who take to the internet for their Secret Santa this year. As with anything else, there may be scammers out there. These people create multiple accounts and enter them all into the gift exchange with the hopes of receiving several presents without the intention of ever sending one out. If you are using elfster you should communicate with your match before you purchase and send out your present. If you are going through one of the previously mentioned forums you should look in to how the exchange is organized. Do your best to make sure that the administrators are verifying the integrity of the participants. These steps will help you to establish that you are being matched with a real person so that you won’t fall victim to a Secret Scrooge.

Once you feel comfortable it’s time to dive in. Let your match know what types of devices you are interested in and find out a little about them too. We always prefer giving something that is a little outside of the box. Custom juice blends, vape holders and the like all make for great Secret Santa presents. Regardless of what you choose to gift, we hope that you have a great time doing it. The holidays are always afun time of year. Even more so now that we can include vapor.

Do E Cigarette Bans Actually Work?

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Wednesday 29 October 2014 10:09 am

We all want to stay abreast of what is going on in the e cigarette community, and as a result we all share information and insight on vapor bans in our communities. Truthfully speaking, there are even more bans and rules to come. What we haven’t yet discussed is if these bans will even work. Sure, governments can limit where and when we can buy and use our vapor devices, but do these new laws really change anything? Those who oppose vapor say they do so for community health reasons. They put together huge lists of rules, for the “common good,” and then they go on about their business. Are these changes actually making an effect?

Do E Cigarette Bans Actually Work?In terms of age limitations we are seeing some positive change. Forty-one states currently have applied age limits to the purchase and use of vapor devices. As most vendors were already enforcing age restrictions; this really did not “change” very much. It is however an example of regulations working in the right direction. As the popularity of vapor increases we will almost certainly see more articles about increases in teens who have tried vapor, but that will simply be a natural by-product of growth. The most cited study concerning teens and vaping still uses data that compares vaping rates among teens in 2013 to rates from 2011, when most teens hadn’t even heard of e cigarettes. As for the future, the numbers will still likely lag far behind the number of teens who smoke. As vapor is an adult indulgence, vapor bans that limit availability to children are a good thing, and they are working.

But what about the adults? The actual e cigarette users. A group that grows in number by the day. Are limitations on when and where we can vape actually swaying users away from vapor? Recent numbers from the U.K. show that tobacco use is down, and while they do not record figures for vapor yet, they state that vapers in the U.K. are “almost entirely current or ex-smokers.” So adults in the United Kingdom, where vapor bans have been in place for some time now, are smoking less while vaping more. All in spite of bans and limitations. Here in the U.S. we are just starting to get feedback as to how these bans are affecting vaping. A vape shop proprietor in Tempe, Arizona is reporting that not only are sales up, he is about to open a second location. Tempe put limitations on indoor use of vapor in August, yet the vapor community did not miss a step. New York City banned indoor use and limited distribution points this past summer. They are considering banning flavors as of this writing. Yet no one from their City Council or public health groups is celebrating a decline in vaping. Why not? It’s simple, adults still want to vape, and they are doing so regardless of how they are required to obtain their vapor products, or where they are allowed to use them. The movement is here, it is real and it is not in going anywhere.

With bans being written into law left and right we are not seeing much actual change. It makes any logical person wonder why the bans are not being better thought out. Or why they are being introduced at all. Extra taxes are being applied at local levels, vapers are being sent outside with smokers, and more, yet the community still embraces vaping. More smokers join our ranks in spite of extra limitations. This fact is a testament to the power of our community, and to the benefits of electronic cigarettes themselves. Vapers will continue to vape, even if there are more rules. We would love to hear your feedback on how vapor bans have had an effect, or lack thereof, in your community. The more we communicate, the stronger the vapor community becomes.

Modders Make the E Cig World Go Round

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Friday 24 October 2014 4:43 pm

Are you one of the many vapers who likes to tweak your e cigarettes? Do experiment with new batteries, different wicking materials and ways to increase vapor output? If so, you are playing a crucial role in the development of the e cigarette industry and culture every time you set out to improve your device. While mainstream media might not know about you, your work is not going unnoticed in the community.

Modders Make the E Cig World Go RoundAs a modder you are in a very unique position in the world of vapor. Right now modding is not a practice that very many non-vapers know about. If they did, we would certainly see more uniformed articles about how “unsafe” it is for people to be building out their own devices. In that spirit we have a plea for all you out there who like to beef up your devices. Do it responsibly, and keep experimenting. Yes, we would love to see both. People who have little knowledge of how batteries and currents work have no place modding. That is obvious and the basis for our request of responsibility. For those of you who do know what you are doing, we implore you to CONTINUE. And here’s why, you are helping to push the entire e cigarette industry forward from the grass roots level.

Really, you are. Modders come up with new hardware combinations that have been known to make their way into other devices, even those put out by large manufacturers. Every time a modder develops a safe, yet powerful e cigarette they have single handedly shown the entire industry a new means of building hardware. You may think that your device is only seen by you and your friends. In reality you never know where those pictures and specs that you share with others end up. The internet allows us to instantly share information, making it simple for new takes on form and design to be spread across the globe. It’s no secret to vapers that modding had a significant impact on the development and popularity of open system vaporizers. Even the large manufacturers are now introducing them alongside cig-a-likes. It was modders, who originally began improving on cig-a-likes, that created the demand for better devices. While you will need an official patent if you intend to collect on your ingenuity, you are helping the vape culture nonetheless. We implore you to keep it up!

While we would once again like to reiterate that safety comes first, you are doing a great job. Every time you upgrade a device you raise the bar, even if it is ever so slightly. With all of the creativity out there it is hard to guess what is in store for us next. From better vapor production to devices with a customized look, it all starts in the modding community. You create the prototypes, we all get better devices, and for that, we thank you. We would love to hear about what you are currently working on. Hey, who wouldn’t like a sneak peak into the future of vapor?

Using E Cigarettes as a Weight Loss Tool

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Monday 6 October 2014 11:10 am

Many vapers have questioned whether electronic cigarettes a tool for weight loss. If you ask some the answer is “yes.” While vapor devices are clearly designed as alternatives to tobacco cigarettes, we are hearing many reports of people using electronic cigarettes to shed pounds, or avoid weight gain. Their effectiveness as a dieting tool is far from proven, however for some e cigarettes really do the trick.

Using E Cigarettes as a Weight Loss ToolTobacco cigarettes have long been associated with weight loss. Many people will tell you that smoking cigarettes increases your metabolism. The truth is that there is really no evidence to back this claim. What research has shown is that nicotine itself has an effect on the brain which curbs your appetite. As a result many smokers have a tendency to eat less. As most e cigarettes contain nicotine, they still deliver the same results as tobacco cigarettes from a hunger management standpoint. Yes, nicotine is a highly addictive element, but it is nice to see that it does have some potential benefits for vapers. If you already vape and are on a diet then this factor just might pay off for you in spades. One thing that we wouldn’t recommend is switching to a juice with higher nicotine content than you are accustomed to. Sure, the extra nicotine might help to suppress your appetite that much more, but at the end of the day a few extra pounds are not worth trading for a higher dependence on nicotine.

There is also something to be said for the behavioral effects of e cigarettes when it comes to weight loss and dieting. A considerable amount of vapers have reported using their favorite flavors of juice to substitute for snacks. Instead of taking in that 600 calorie piece of chocolate cake, many vapers simply fill their tank with chocolate, caramel, or any of the other thousands of tasty juice concoctions out there. You get the treat that you are craving without the unwanted baggage. A few puffs are usually all it takes to satisfy your sweet tooth. This is just another reason that we need to keep flavors around. We don’ t expect that many non-vapers will include electronic cigarettes in their weight loss plans, but vapor’s ability to substitute for a snack on the go sure does come in handy. Once again, these are adults using flavored e juice, not children.

We sincerely doubt that any doctors would prescribe electronic cigarettes as a part of a weight loss plan. We also do not recommend vaping as a tactic to anyone who does not already smoke or vape. You could definitely pick up zero nicotine liquid to satisfy cravings throughout the day, but it is not advisable to take in nicotine solely to trim down. Having said all of that it does look like e cigarettes could play a small role in your weight loss plan. Diet and exercise are obviously the key factors to focus on, but a little help never hurts!

Is Now The Time to Open a Vape Shop?

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Friday 19 September 2014 2:04 pm

You see more and more of them every day. Vape Shops are opening in towns big and small, catering to the ever-growing market of e cigarette users and aficionados. It has prompted a good amount of vapers to start their own businesses, and lead others wondering if now is the time to open a vape shop. It just might be, as long as you understand the current climate, and what it takes to run a proper e cigarette store.

Is Now The Time to Open a Vape Shop?What it Takes to Run a Vape Shop

There are several key elements that make up the best vape shops we have ever had the chance to visit. If you can hit the ground running with these elements in place, you have a much better chance at staking your claim in the vapor industry.

Employ the Right Staff

Frontline employees are key to success at any business. At a vape shop it is crucial to make the right hires. First off it makes sense to hire actual vapers. It sounds obvious but I have had conversations with multiple counter people and sales clerks who don’t seem to know much about vaping. Your staff has to be able to break down the different types of electronic cigarettes. Would a cig-a-like be best for a particular customer or should they start off with a personal vaporizer? If they know they want a personal vaporizer will a basic eGo-style device do the trick or are they ready for an e cig that lets them control air intake and battery power? A staff that knows the products, the brands, and the flavors is key. This is what we would look for first, and then thin the herd of applicants from there by focusing on personality, customer service skills and retail experience. One thing to watch out for is what I like to call a “vapor snob.”  They may be highly knowledgeable about vapor, but could end up being rude to a newbie. One employee not taking the time to educate and really help a newbie could cost you a lifelong customer. This is an issue that I have encountered more than once. The right staff will increase sales while helping to create an environment where vapers feel welcomed and actually enjoy spending their money.

Carry A Broad Selection of E Cigarettes

This is another one that sounds basic, but isn’t. How many times have you walked into a brand new vape shop, just to see a couple of brands of cig-a-likes and one or two options for super basic PVs? It sounds like a good idea to stick to that one small distributer with cheaper products at first. When you start losing out on sales due to lack of inventory it will not. Contact the larger vapor brands and ask for bulk pricing. This will give you brand names that people have heard of off the bat. You should also look to bulk buy from actual device manufacturers. With the internet this is easier than ever. Websites like (not an endorsement ) have popped up allowing business owners to deal directly with manufacturers. You will have to investigate each product and make the deal yourself, but will have access to a far larger pool of manufacturers and products, with fewer middle men. We suggest stocking multiple options for: cig-a-likes, PVs, box mods, and if you can find them throw in a couple of higher end mods. If you are experienced, or a little more daring, you may want to look into mixing custom juices onsite. The margins will be in your favor and you can attract that many more vapers. Designate an area in the shop, ensure that it is hygienic and that all components are stored correctly, and add to your offerings. Having a full spectrum of products at a variety of price points will let you serve vapers of all levels.

Know the Law

E cigarette laws are changing at local and national levels. Even as bans pop-up many municipalities seem to still allow vaping in vape shops, even though it may no longer be allowed in an office building or bars. This is a huge opportunity, as owning an establishment that allows vapers to congregate and try new things in a town where they are otherwise banished to the sidewalk is a great way to attract business. Right now most vape shops are not required to have a special license. Look into local laws to see if you need the same level of licensing as a tobacco shop in order to do business. Even if you do not, keep in mind that impending regulations from the FDA may soon change this factor nationwide. Planning now to spend the time and money to acquire proper licensing is a must. There’s no point in opening a shop if you won’t be able to pay for the necessary license and permits in the next year. Another potential upside to a bric and mortar vape shop is the chance that the FDA bans online sales. The White House removed language that did this from the FDA’s original proposal, but that does not mean it will not beaded back in. While losing online sales would be detrimental to vapers, it presents a distinct opportunity for retail location. Also, getting in before regulations come down may allow you to be “grandfathered” in to certain abilities and distinctions that will not be available after laws are formed.

Pick the Right Spot

Okay, so you know you probably shouldn’t open up next to a school. But where should you open up?

Strip malls in residential sectors aren’t the most glamorous location, but they do provide you with a good amount of people who might rather shop with you than drive a further distance. They also allow you to target customer that reside near your business via mail-outs, online ads, and billboards. If you go the residential route aim for a location on a main road with good visibility. You don’t want to lose out on business to a convenience store just because they are easier to get to. On the other side of the coin you may opt to target an entertainment district. If you are in the center of an area that bustles with diners, partiers, and young people you can pick up a good amount of business based on location alone. You will get traffic from all over your area, which will help to spread the word around town. You will also have access to larger amounts of smokers who may pop in after dinner or before they go out looking for something different. One thing to keep in mind is that if you choose a club district over a residential area it will behoove you to keep later business hours. Closing at 9PM Thursday, Friday and Saturday could be very costly in an entertainment district. In either case you should look for a space that accomodates both retial counters and lounges. Shops that have an area for vapers to gather and relax succeed in building relationship much more quickly than small shops. Your location will heavily affect your overall business strategy.

Like any business, opening a successful vape shops takes a good plan. You need knowledgeable, dedicated staff, the right location, and a good selection of products. If you are planning to open up in a small, hardly trafficked strip mall that offers low rent, and sell the least expensive devices that you can find you won’t be in business for long. Far too many people open exactly this type of shop and fail. If you are ready to create an environment that really caters to vapers, and has great selection then now may be the perfect time to get started.

Part of E Cigs’ Trouble Is in Their Name

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Friday 15 August 2014 12:59 pm

Bans and restrictions are being put into place right and left. Articles come out daily about the potential health effects, and the dangers of children coming into contact with vapor. At this point it really seems as if one of the biggest hurdles that electronic cigarettes have is the name itself. The fact that the word “cigarette” is included automatically cues skepticism, doubt and defensiveness. Considering how tobacco cigarettes have affected our society it really is no wonder that this happens. Smoking really is dangerous, and the stigma that surrounds smoking is often summed up with the word “cigarette”. Vaporizers, vapor products, vapes, mods, PVs or whatever else we call them would almost certainly stand a better chance if they had a name of their own.

Part of E Cigs Trouble Is in Their NameWhen they were first developed the name made perfect sense. E cigarettes were brand new products; due to the fact that they were just being introduced they needed a name that would help explain what they were. As they were electronic, and they were a replacement for cigarettes the term “electronic cigarette” took naturally. Everyone, including ourselves, took the name in stride. Fast forward to 2014 and the name is just not as fitting as it once was. The public at large understands what e cigarettes are. Sure your average Joe on the street may not be able to break down how they work or the difference between a drip tip and a clearomizer, but he will likely know what an e cig is. Three years ago this would not have been true. So with the passage of time and increases in awareness it is time for a change. We as a community need to settle on exactly what we call our devices, and the name should not include the word “cigarette”.

The shift would be a good one. It would further concrete the vapor community, building upon the identity and comradery that already exists. It would also allow for the products and the practice in general to be differentiated, even if but slightly, from smoking. The fact that people automatically think of cancer, emphysema, high blood pressure and the like is just plain bad for the vapor community. Yes, more research must be done. Yes, nicotine is an addictive substance. But neither of these facts makes it fair or even logical to lump vapor under the same umbrella as smoking. As a community we already call it vaping, and it is high time that the rest of the world took notice.

To make that happen we need to take the first step. When we talk about vapor to non-users we shouldn’t argue about subtle differences between vaping and smoking, we should highlight that they are completely different practices. Show them your “vaporizer”. Let them know how it works and how it has helped you. Focus on not using the word cigarette, and politely correct others in the debate when they use that verbiage. Don’t be pushy. Certainly don’t be rude. But don’t accept “No” for an answer. Changing public perception and acceptance can be just that easy. Obviously a switch in terminology will not stop the anti-vapor types. But it will plant a seed in the minds of many, and help to disassociate vapor products from the downsides of smoking that simply do not have anything to do with vaping.

So what do you call your device? If you still call it a cigarette, would you consider switching up verbiage? This is more than merely semantics. It is a better way to describe the devices that have changed the lives of so many people. It will afford us more leeway as vapers, and put the rest of the community on notice.  It’s also a heck of a lot more accurate.

How Much Should E Cig Juice Cost?

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Monday 28 July 2014 12:32 pm

At this point the ranks of vapers have grown into the 100’s of thousands, if not more. And that’s just in the United States. With all of this growth has come a huge number of vendors. As we shop around and take the time to try out new brands for our electronic cigarette reviews we see a wide gap in pricing. It’s hard for a vaper to put a set fHow Much Should E Cig Juice Cost?igure on just how much an e juice should cost. Is that low priced juice a good deal, or is the more expensive option really better?

To start let’s recap the 4 main ingredients in e juice to see what their base costs are. Remember that we haven’t surveyed every vendor, nor do we mix e juice ourselves, so these are close approximations based on research and large quantity purchases of each key ingredient. We are assuming that the end mix measures out to: 40% PG, 40% VG, 10% flavoring and 10% nicotine, resulting in a medium level of nicotine and a 50/50 PG to VG ratio.:

Propylene glycol- E juices with more PG give more throat hit. Propylene glycol can be bought in bulk from $8/gallon up to around $20/gallon depending upon who you purchase it from. Let’s go with the average and call it $14/gallon or about $0.02 per 15 ml vial (assuming your end mix is 40% PG).

Vegetable glycerin- VG is known for producing clouds of vapor, but with less throat hit. Food grade vegetable glycerin goes for anywhere between $12/gallon and $30/gallon. The average being $21/gallon or about $0.03 per 15 ml vial (assuming your mix is 40% VG).

Food grade flavoring- This is where pricing is hard to pin down. There are a ton of places to buy food quality flavors. The better e juice brands will be using the more expensive options. Pricing puts most flavors in the $20/gallon to $70/gallon range. The average comes to $45/gallon or about $0.02 per 15 ml vial (assuming that 10% of your mix is flavoring).

Liquid nicotine- Prices for liquid nicotine run a wide range. The end cost depends upon where you buy it from, the nicotine concentration level that your purchase and then how much you dilute the product down during the mixing process. 100mg liquid nicotine is readily available for around $100 per liter bringing the cost to $0.15 for 15ml.

So, our rough estimate of the cost of mixing materials for a 15 ml bottle of e juice is:

$0.02 + $0.03 + $0.02 + $0.15 = $0.22

Based upon our math the actual ingredients in a 15ml bottle of e juice run cost about $0.22. We are happy to round this up to an even $0.25 for the sake or round numbers. Keep in mind that the bottles the juices are sold in, rent on a warehouse or brick and mortar store, website costs, shipping costs, employee/payroll costs, insurance, etc. must be factored in to the end cost as these are part of every manufacturer’s overhead. The actual cost of a 15ml bottle of e juice is in fact much higher than a quarter. Then they need to up the price a bit more so that they can make some profit, e juice manufacturers are businesses after all.

As with any product the larger and more established brands charge more for their e juice. It’s not unheard of for a vendor to ask for up to $25 for a 15 ml vial. A local brick and mortar near us sells their “premium” juices for that much for 10ml vials. In our humble opinion, this is just too much. While it is worthwhile to pay more for quality no one wants to feel like they were ripped off. On the other end of the spectrum we see some online retailers selling their juices for as low as $2 for a 15ml vial. This is probably too low. It may be a new brand trying to get their name out there, but we still don’t touch juices that cost this little. In our minds the juice is likely made of lower quality ingredients, and quite possibly in a lesser equipped facility by staff that may not be fully trained. To us, pricing should be in the middle. Standard 15ml bottles of e juice that run anywhere from $5 to $10, and $10 to $15 30ml bottles are fairly priced to us.

If you are ever in doubt as to whether you are paying too much we suggest shopping around. Start by looking at some of the bigger names like Mount Baker (currently $6 for 15ml and $11 for 30ml bottles) or Vapor 4 Life (currently selling 30ml bottles for $12.50). Anything in this range is a good buy in our opinion. While you are researching you will want to look for reviews on the juices themselves. You can find these online on sites like ours. You can also ask around or hop on forums like E Cig Forum or even Reddit. You have to take the information with a grain of salt, but forums can be great places to discover new brands of juice.

The Difference Between Vaping E Juice & Vaping Marijuana

Posted by Chris | E Cigarette 101 | Monday 21 July 2014 2:23 pm

One of the issues that has some people asking for more regulations when it comes to vaping is the fact that a small group of people are using vaporizers to consume marijuana/THC, as opposed to nicotine. Not surprisingly, the issue isn’t really being touted as a health concern, but a concern that when someone is vaping marijuana and not smoking it, it’s harder to catch them. Opponents are suggesting that electronic cigarettes will be used as a cover for marijuana, which is obviously illegal in the majority of the United States. Of course there are health concerns thrown in for good measure to make it look like this is all about health. In order to help avoid e cigarettes being lumped in with illegal products in the face of society and pending legislation it is important for the community at large to understand the differences between vaping e juice and vaping marijuana. The are separate practices which should not be confused for one another.


The Difference Between Vaping E Juice & Vaping Marijuana

The general consensus is that the best temperature zone to vape marijuana is between 240-370 degrees Fahrenheit. The best temperature for nicotine is between 257-302 degrees Fahrenheit. If you go any lower, you are going to release more aroma and less of the components that you are seeking to take in. While the temperatures are relatively close in terms of reaching the optimal level of heat, there is a notable difference. In other words, if someone does try to vape marijuana from an e-cigarette, they aren’t going to get the full effect that they are looking for because e-cigarettes are optimized for vaping nicotine. It is important to point out that these are in fact completely different devices from the beginning.

Vape Pens

Vape pens are vapor products that look like e-cigs, but aren’t. They are used for vaping marijuana. Different versions of these devices allow marijuana users to vaporize dried herbs or a THC infused wax. Anyone who is truly worried about marijuana use, and feels that they need to involve electronic cigarettes, is best advised to learn the signs of marijuana and accept that the product itself, and its effects fail to equate to using an electronic cigarette or traditional personal vaporizer.

Signs of Marijuana Use

Knowing how to differentiate those vaping marijuana and those vaping e cig juice will put you on the right path understanding the fundamental differences in the two activities.

*Marijuana proponents use vape pens, otherwise known as the “G Pen”.

*When vaping in public marijuana users often try to hide use of vape pen.

*An aroma of marijuana will waft through the air when someone is partaking in the (largely) illegal version of vaping. It’s hard to mistake the smell of marijuana for “Traditional Tobacco” or “Cherry Jubilee”.

*For a quick rundown on the signs of marijuana use check out this overview from the National Institute of Drug Abuse.

While we are not here to condone, encourage, or otherwise address the use of marijuana, we aren’t here to judge it either. Many states are in the process of changing their marijuana laws, and to be honest marijuana might just be legal in your state soon, if it isn’t already. E cigarette users are sure to be mistaken for marijuana users, and vice versa, in the very near future. It is important to highlight the differences between the substances, their effects and the overall lifestyle that is associated with each.
