    Default Help stop Chicago from banning e-cigarette usage!

    So the Chicago City Council is voting on banning the use of e-cigarettes in public places on Monday the 13th.

    Please spread the V4Lers to all Chicago and Illinois vapers. We have to be proactive in getting the word out to shoot this down!

    If you know anyone in the city limits of Chicago, please encourage them to reach out to their Alderman.

    It passed, 45 - 4. It's a sad day for vapers in Chicago. We've got 30 days before it kicks in but none of have seen the language in the ordinance yet. Good ol' Chicago hasn't released it.

    Glad I moved out of Illinois! I'm sorry. I have to laugh. Banning vaping? How can anyone tell if you are sneaking a puff in the washroom or by yourself in a back corner? Are they going to ask you to turn out your pockets? I wonder what the fines are going to be?

    Well it won't affect HQ as much as it will our new store in Chicago.We just got a copy of the ordinance and because of the location, we may not even be able to vape indoors! Seriously it's crap. But we're waiting for confirmation of this before we panic.
