    Pro-vaping articles warrant our posting KUDOS in the comments section
    to express gratitude to the authors and encourage other authors who might
    be reluctant to post "the truth" .. for fear of being ridiculed.

    EDIT
    There's no law requiring journalists to include FDA Lies and ANTZ Propaganda
    in articles ... to give the "illusion" of being fair and balanced !!

    When I see a pro e-smoking article
    I see a trend with journalists feeling comfortable with writing positive articles
    about e-cigarettes ... I'm sure there will never be any article which can't
    be dissected with criticisms.

    The bottom line is we have come a long way in a relative short time.
    Seeing this article a year ago ... we would be doing hand stands.

    Just my 2 Cents

    "Camren Blackburn, who runs Southern Vapes in Winston-Salem with her mother, said she started inhaling liquids with 24 milliliters of nicotine. Now, Blackburn — who started smoking when she was 12 — is down to 12 milliliters."

    If people dont know the basics then the regulators have it easy

    24mg per mil-down to 12mg per mil

    Maybe she got it wrong. Maybe the reporter reported it wrong.

    Good point ...
    The other day I called my favorite Internet marketer
    and suggested they change their labeling to an accurate standard
    regarding the % of nicotine. They agreed !!

    Most of us have concerns about the future of our favorite vendors.
    I suggest when they start to regulate nicotine ... The regulators
    could put many of our vendors out of business for incorrect labels and
    incorrect nic levels posted on their websites. Small vendors can't afford large
    legal expenses to fight the regulators.

    I've got a bad feeling the regulators will come down with a heavy hand
    With Little To No Warning.

    Many of our Mom and Pop vendors have been using the old standard
    24mg (for example) for so long ... they probably don't have a clue its incorrect
    and will be deemed a big regulatory violation.

    Now I'm confused. "24 mg" refers to 24 milligrams of nicotine per... what? milliliter? liter? gram?

    It really doesn't make that much difference what we call the percentage of nic ...
    We all understand. However, when they start to regulate...Our vendors
    will be targeted by the regulators. Both the labels and content of their websites.

    Also ... the E-cig industry today is highly competitive.
    I wouldn't put it past BT and some unscrupulous vendors
    to "burn" competition by contacting the regulators telling them
    XYZ marketer is ms-labeling their e-liquids.

    You make a very good point. WE all know what the inference is. Though with an industry already in high debate, labels will definitely be looked at closely. I even remember back in my supermarket days, our bakery got hit with $13000 in fines due do mislabeled products. A little different but the same as far as the fine goes. A $13000 fine could close a mom and pop shop.
