    I guess I'm lucky. I live in a small South Georgia county. One of the Sheriff's radio operators asked me to help get her first set up. Since doing so I've also helped 2 of the patrol officers start too. One is already into building his own box mods. The more law enforcement officers that start vaping the better it will be.

    Never got pulled over for vaping, sounds extreme to me. Last time I was pulled over was on my motorcycle, and he let me off easy and only wrote up for 16mph over to 70 limit. But that was when he was able to catch up to clock me on my Warrior, and had slowed down considerably after doing a hole shot onto the freeway. But no, never for vaping.
    P.S.: the cat bites!

    This is going to be a problem more and more so in the future because of the growing popularity of vape pens for {OTHER STUFF}. Cops are well aware these things are out there and are being used everywhere now. I never heard of {OTHER STUFF} pens until last year when a friend turned me on to one last year. People do this a lot more on the west coast where [MODERATED] is more available but its now made its way east. I work on a college campus in NJ and I own one of these pens and its like owning a new car, when you get one you start to notice others with it.. I see students hitting the pen all the time. To most people they think its a ecig. Just careful cause we now will be getting looked at more and more.

    Yes!! I got stopped by a state trooper when he saw me taking a vape off my hammer mod. I wasn't that surprised though because the mod does look like a pipe especially from a distance. When I showed him the hammer I found out that he too was a vaper. After that he was really cool we got to talking about the different mods we had. But he did say that he thought I was puffing on a "pot pipe" so he said don't be surprised if it happens again. Nice cop though. Nice cops are a rare breed these days.

    Rinky-dink home security outfits. A house down the street had a service a few years back with a guy driving around in a white Geo Metro flashing his light at the address numbers to be sure he found the right one. The company's logo was proudly printed on the door.

    Last week. I was in Chicago during Vape Bash. (Sadly I did not attend.) I had just left Vape, a B&M on western ave. Using a mec, loving the new juice when..... One of the city's "finest" pulled a u turn to site me for DWI & possession. Unfortunately for him the search yielded no contraband. He proceeded to tell me I should just use one that's looks lie a cigarette when out in public. "Save the other paraphernalia for home use." I kindly reminded him it was as yet a free country, and I may do as I please. This really got him going. I forget that I live in a police state sometimes.
    I find all this extremely funny. I drive a semi all over the city every night. I bring my Vamo with a kayfun 3.1 on top. It's like 10" long! I've never been looked at twice. Perhaps he doesn't know the difference between a head shop & a vape store.

    I think it is extremely rare as the vast majority of police know about and understand what vaping is and is not. I interact with police and deputies regularly and the only thing they ask me is where they can get what I am vaping with.

    But there are "storm-trooper" cops like the one you encountered, unfortunately. I'm glad you reported him. Let us know if anything comes out of your reporting him although I highly doubt anything will. They always protect their own.
