    I like the wonderful sense of compromises our adversaries engage in. How can we not be reasonable toward their position when they act like this?

    IOW, I really hope organizers of this vape event fight them, win and send a message.

    Most vapers practice proper vaping edicate.
    Why can't nonvapers/nonsmoker's do the same? I'm pretty sure there weren't any of the latter there.

    Why would people bother going to a vape expo where they're not allowed to vape?
    Yes the rule is stupid but, rules are rules. People knew about the no vaping before going and still went then decided to not follow the rules

    That entire convention was a disaster.
    Organizers tried to circumvent local ordinances, and set themselves up for failure.
    They even tried to claim that it was a "membership only - private event" to try and find a loophole.
    That's some sketchy amateur stuff and should have been a huge clue to vendors and vapers.

    Avoid sketchiness and unprofessionalism like the plague. It never works out.

    Word has it it was back to business and vaping ... earlier by a bit after six p.m.
    Seems like nothing more than a publicity maneuver on the Councels part. Otherwise the Cops could have just as easily shut the place down.

    If people don't at least attempt to live life the way they enjoy it as long as it does not bring injury to others we will eventually have NOTHING unless some ..... sitting in a closet decides it is approved.:grr:

    Every vape convention I've seen has foggy rooms with low-lying vapor clouds like this. :wub:

    It was a good idea to set up sampling outside. That probably should have been the SOP.

    The reality is that other people use these convention centers....let's say the next trade show as soon as this one was broken down was a trade show for home furnishings or one of the big national expos like ABC Kids Expo or All Baby and Child Conference and Show.........I can fully appreciate that you simply can't have residue of VG or food flavorings hanging around in these buildings.

    Really not sure I could handle being in a room that fogged up, to be honest. Its not about being anti vaping, I mean, I vape!

    Hey! Let's have an e-cig convention at an indoor venue in a municipality that has strict laws against using e-cigs indoors! What could possibly go wrong?!

    Not BS.
    Notices about the "membership system" were sent out to vendors.
    The organizers knew this was an issue.

    The problem was, the organizers chose a venue in an area that already has regulations in effect, and either decided to ignore them, or didn't do enough research.
    Damn the laws, the show must go on.
    Organizers rent a venue and sell booths to vendors, and sometimes tickets at the door.
    That's all they do.

    Also remember they voted those .......into
    Office, and continue to do so.

    Apparently, it's what the good people that live there wanted.


    Laws need to be changed. It's not that hard of we all vote.
    We have the power. We always have.
    Civil disobedience is last desperate act, not a first response.

    There's been other vape conventions/trade shows where "problems" broke out.....due to not asking correct permissions and/or not having act together in general.

    We've been thru this in past, over last few years, and covered this in forum posts.

    Anybody looking at those kinds of photos, unless they are just so "pro-vaping" that they are in deep denial, gets it.

    Whoever put that together did a wonderful job of bringing the idiots who passed these crap laws out in the open and made them look as silly as the laws. It's not poor planning, it's very good planning they have everything covered so when the when everything looked like it was falling apart they exposed everyone.

    Let's face it, some petitions and threatening letters from the minority aren't going to get it done, some civil disobedience that makes the news and makes those not involved think about the situation is much more effective.

    There's proper civil disobedience. And there's "due, get off of my side!"

    This kinda stuff approaches the second one

    and we are how many years into the Voting makes a difference thing? Civil Disobedience has its place.
    I do not even attend things like this. they have no appeal. However, I have attended many conventions and concerts in the past. I'm ex- car audio retail. I know what the people paying at the door are expecting........................ and it isn't ear plugs or lolli-pops.:D

    * I'm not an in your face person, but this was a Promoted event with people having Expectations.
