What might we see in 2014? Future of vaping industry..

Posted by Silas Boyd on 9th Mar 2014

Even Forbes magazine is on board.

They can already see the pressure is on, with a seemingly limitless wave of proposed ordinances that intend to drive electronic cigarettes off the market. As they await regulation and legislation, they cannot help but wonder: will it be a ban in legislative sheep’s clothing? What will the impact be?

The year 2014 is definitely going to be a challenging for the e-cig industry and for vapers. The regulation of these products is now a reality – not here in the US, but globally as well. The industry has exploded like nothing I have seen before, which has raised some eyebrows from local, state and federal sectors – as well as immense giant pharma and tobacco companies – all of which stand to lose billions in profits, unless e-cigs are stopped.

2014 will be the year they rally the troops to fight for our right as adults to make use of these products. I expect multiple legal challenges worldwide, as they move forward in our indefatigable hard work to show that the greatest value of e-cigs is this: they permit people to get their nicotine fix without the well-documented harm that comes from smoking tobacco.

My hope is that those in charge of public health will cease mis-interpeting (intentionally or otherwise) the knowledge and science that is available so far. I hope they will recognize that e-cigs are the most promising product in human history when it comes to reducing smoking-related harm. Therefore not only ought to it NOT be banned from the market – it ought to be promoted as a consumer product that will effectively increase the quality of life for millions.
