Hi, just getting started with vaping and DH and I are really wondering whether this will last. We both are skeptical that the vaping subculture will remain just that: a subculture. I envision a couple of possible scenarios; probably been talked about to death here, but I am having major problems trying to keep up with the traffic on ECF already so I thought I'd just ask for opinions:
1) Big Tobacco moves in, kind of like how Big Business is moving/has moved into the Internet and is trying to profit from it. Big Tobacco works with the government to get e-cigs/e-juice regulated, and becomes the only legal means of buying. Prices skyrocket to equal the cost of cigarettes.
2) E-cigs are banned, which is the scenario I see talked about much more here.
What's the likelihood of the first scenario happening?
