The vote against the marketing of e-liquid flavorings finally tipped in favor of anti-vapes. After a staggering 69% vs. 31%, shops are forced to ban flavored liquids, and to a large extent to condemn vapers in general to look for other alternatives to quit smoking.
A false debate that specifically targeted the vape
In Europe, a particular regulation governs the ecosystem of the vape by incorporating it into the family of tobacco products. This categorization is not illegitimate in the context of the use of nicotine in e-liquid, and it is the FDA that is officially responsible for its application.
The vaping community has not found much to refute on this legislation especially as it serves as a beacon against abuse and unfair competition. Where the rub is when the anti-vape lobby tries to influence the institutions from this situation to completely disqualify the vape through tobacco.
The state of San Francisco has been forced to pass an anti-vape law after the demands of parents on the growing potential of liquid flavors (natural flavors, synthetic flavors) to lead young people to smoking. A study done by the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education de l’Université de Californie a été utilisée comme poudre de feu afin d’attaquer le vapotage.
In this perspective, no defense can be assigned to the liquid aroma, or even to the electronic cigarette because it is categorized tobacco products, it emanates the sensations of the cigarette and is used as such. However, the main objective of the ecig is to restrict the consumption of nicotine from an aromatic alibi and not the opposite, a concept that will not have weighed in particular.
The vape is too young to defend herself
E-liquid is dangerous for your health. It contains nicotine and some chemical elements, it is a fact and nobody disputes it. Yet compared to cigarettes, vaping has only 5% risk and in 10 years, an e-cig has not caused any death. It is from this vision that the public must direct its judgment. Indeed, the e-liquid is the most effective tobacco substitute capable of safeguarding public health.
Studies have shown that nicotine withdrawal by the e-liquid tobacco has a success rate of 26% (the case of the French for example) compared to other alternatives. The effectiveness of this remedy is based on the declension of dependence through liquid flavors, which will replace the need for nicotine by diversified flavors. Unfortunately, the San Francisco community has setbacks in this operating system and blames the liquid flavor of training young people, which is not wrong, but with a relatively small percentage.
In the end, the regulation of the vape in San Francisco has condemned the e-liquid aroma for the wrong reasons that its links with tobacco. However, the cigarette manufacturers can survive this kind of lawsuit by their fortune while the vape can not face a simple anti-vape law, because it has not had time to expand and to pose its bases, a very sad situation. In another context, this new risk of tipping the world of vaping in the United States, or the whole world for the same reasons of feverishness found in San Francisco. At present, other regions are preparing for the implementation of a similar bill under the influence of untenable anti-vape lobbying.
