I have a weak stomach so thanks for the advise not to go into a plant.
Interesting facts about the us additive laws
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my visit in China, (want to go back) and i am testing my own lead glazes for some of my decorative ware. Potters in the UK can still use it.
From what I hear is you think North Americans should be more accountable for their decisions and their laws. Agreed.
Just happy the chinese developed the ecig and I have a choice from tobacco.
I strictly DIY, I just feel much better about my health and safety knowing what I'm putting into my juice. Not to start a war or panic, but there are still popular flavors that I just dont think are healthy. For example butter flavoring and cinnamon which are in many flavors. Since I quit smoking it's really made me stop and think about what I've done to my body for so many years and I now strive to make every aspect of my life healthier.
Good post and I've also begun thinking about my health since quitting analogs in regards to exercise. I also DIY and order all my nic juice from the U.S. making sure it's certified and of high quality. Hate to lump ALL Chinese companies in one basket but where my health is concerned I'm not taking any chances. Also a good thing to be a loyal consumer to N. American vendors even if it means spending a touch more.
I support America, am a proud American and buy American made in almost all instances when I have a choice. I drive a Corvette, Chevy van and ride a Harley. I initially had thoughts of vaping only USA products myself. I vape only DIY now. Then I found these amazing flavors from Vaping Zone. Super Concentrated alcohol based flavors that require only 2.5% and have amazing taste and aroma. They are made in China. They are all I vape now. Just sayin'.
I'll vape Dekang.And also many others outside of the US.
For the most part, I use liquids only from ECBlend E-Liquids - Something Better. Their's is all made in the USA, and they don't import their nicotine. I have a dozen flavors from them that keep me going strong.
However, I do have a couple of liquids from Smokeless Image, 555 and RY4, that I really like, it's the flavors used in their pre-filled carts. And it is from China. If I find a 555 and RY4 I like better made in the USA, then I'll switch, but my first samples tasted like perfume and are still steeping. But after this long, I don't think the perfume-y flavor is going away.
Big Pharma gets its nicotine for its patches and gums from China, from the exact same labs that your nicotine vendor gets its nicotine from.
When they quit thinking a PV is an electric cigarette, they'll quit treating us like smokers and calling vapor smoke. Best not to vape what looks like a cig. or use the word e-cigarette among the uninitiated. Vaporizers are "e-cigarettes" like electric toothbrushes are e-carrots.
