Rise in Vaping Culture

How Washington May Affect the Future of Vaping

Pressure is on the Trump administration to quash harsh new rules set to come in next year that could see some e-cigarette manufacturers go out of business. It’s because of a significant rise in the popularity of vaping culture and a number of key studies showing vaping is far better for health than smoking tobacco.

Will A Vape Tax Become A Reality In The EU?

According to news sources, E-cigarettes and vaping products may soon be taxed under the Tobacco Excise Directive (TED) in the EU.

Vapers in the EU reportedly had until February 16th, 2017, to submit their comments to the EU Commission about the issue before the opportunity to speak up would come to a close. Now, it’s time for the EU to decide whether or not vaping products will be included as part of the TED. This would mean that vaping products would be taxed similarly to tobacco products… an idea that has a lot of vapers up in arms, and for a good reason.
