This is it. If you think my saying that what PayPal, the FDA, the airlines, the tobacco companies, and more to be named later, are doing to us is evil is over the top, then I believe you have not been paying attention.
For decades no one has protected us from the death and disability by the millions all over the world that is the direct fault of the tobacco industries and the collusion of them with government. It was a conspiracy of silence to say the least, accessory to murder to say to most.
Now the roaches are crawling out of their dark corners to try to take advantage of a fledgling movement and a baby industry of regular people going over to the only sane way of ingesting nicotine there is. Many, many are finally able to give up an addiction to cigarettes that makes ...... addiction child's play.
Now PayPal has cut the vaping community from their services, most likely under pressure from powerful forces. No one can buy or sell e cigarettes, or more accurately, personal vaporizers through PP. I'm sure the airlines' bans on vaping are also the result of terror tactics.
We are being lied to, manipulated, and just plain old bullied by the powers that be. It is not happening quietly or gently, but the thugs are openly putting the boots to us and their suppression tactics will escalate in brutality until vaping in freedom will seem a distant dream. I am a woman who immigrated to the US when I was 15, and I have been sensitized by my former culture and my family to the danger signs of freedom's being gradually eroded, and to the encroaching thud of the dictators' troops. The FDA is illegally confiscating vaping products from overseas, and it's not long that when even our institutions openly flout our own laws, that we are in deep trouble.
We let them take one thing after another away from us and we do nothing.
I can, though, cancel my PP, let them know precisely why they have lost a good customer, contact the BBB, and spread the word to anyone I can I will disparage them to all of my contacts and band together with like-minded people to take back and to preserve not just some of our freedoms, but all of them. It's not enough to have some freedom, you are either free or you are not.

Let's talk to see if there is enough will out there to begin to stop this while there is time, because once vaping is under the government's control it will be to late. And that is a fact.
