    Can the government really ban cigarettes by 2030? And what does this mean for vapers? An in-depth looking at England's plans and what it means for vaping and the vaping industry.

    The article states that they aren’t plans yet, merely thoughts about potential plans. It’s interesting though. Apparently cigarette smuggling is a bigger problem in the UK than it is in the US which makes sense. Greater percentage of coastline and ports.

    Oh my word, that's an amazing article. Thank you for sharing.

    "The UK, along with a handful of other nations such as Canada and New Zealand, has pushed on with a more liberal policy, but negative stories created by a sophisticated and well-financed campaign against vaping. Perhaps the most recent is the worst, with the use of illegal drugs and oils (known to cause respiratory illnesses when vaped) being deliberately conflated with vaping legal e-liquid."

    "Some vapers and vape companies long for an environment in which vaping can continue working its magic, unhindered by political influences. After all, in its early years vaping succeeded in slashing smoking rates without any political help. That’s partly because of a vibrant industry that is close to its customers and has innovated to provide the devices and flavours smokers needed. It’s tempting to call for the government to leave what’s working well alone.

    Yet in reality vaping was never going to be left alone. The vaping industry simply threatens too many organisations and people who benefit either from smoking or the fight against smoking. As a result of those interests, and a voracious campaign against vaping, the number of smokers switching to vaping is fizzling out like a cigarette on its last puff. As a result, tens of thousands of smokers in the UK, and millions worldwide, could die an earlier death."
