1. Take part in the #WeAreVapor campaign

    Dear Guest, 

    The  #WeAreVapor campaign has just launched and needs your help. This is a massive push to get vapers and vapor businesses visible, and make Congress aware of the Cole-Bishop amendment. It is being organised by the Vapor Technology Association. 

    Please take a minute of your time to take a look at the site to see how you can get involved. 

    Thanks!

    Please follow the link at the top of the page titled "Michigan - Call to Action". Hope everyone is taking action on this. Doing it might not help our case seeing as how the greedy bastiches are looking for another golden egg laying goose to tax the hell out of.. But I vote and I remember who supports me and who doesn't. I made my opinions known and if too few people do, they will do what they feel like. It's not like the Governor wants his own bridge or anything!

    I received a reply from Representative Joseph Haveman and he suggested that we also contact Senator Meekhof. This may be only for those of us who live in the area he serves, Ottawa County, Sparta Township and Grandville City in Kent County.

    I did send my comments to Senator Meekhof as suggested.

    Unlike previous replies from other representatives in the past, it appears that Joseph Haveman actually read my comments and sent a personal reply rather than a canned reply.

    It is not so much that they are calling a NON tobacco adult consumer product TOBACCO..... It is that they are unfairly bullishly taxing individuals that enjoy using them as an alternative to smoking. It is smoking that is said to cause diseases, over a lifetime of use. Great cartoon, share it everywhere.

    If I ever get a response, it is generally a 'canned' one, probably done by an intern..
    If anyone wants a link to the PDF of the proposed bill:

    http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2013-2014/billintroduced/Senate/pdf/2014-SIB-1018.pdf

    These can get confusing, but one thing I noticed was a 15 cent tax per 1.5 ML of juice...but then I got sleepy and stopped reading so there might well be more line item taxes..
    So a tax of $1.50 per 15 ml bottle (plus nine cents sales tax on the tax of course)..
