  • San Francisco moves to ban sales of vaping flavors, menthol cigarettes

    By Susan Scutti, CNN

    San Francisco city supervisors approved this week an ordinance to ban the sales of flavored vaping liquid. The measure would also prohibit sales of menthol cigarettes and other flavored tobacco products.

    The city board will vote on the ban next week. If passed, the legislation will become effective in April 2018 throughout the city -- the first in the nation to approve such a sweeping ban on flavored tobacco sales.

    Non-flavored tobacco products will still be allowed to be sold in the city under the new law. Prohibited products would include all flavored cigarettes, flavored cigars, flavored smokeless tobacco, flavored shisha, and flavored nicotine solutions that are used in e-cigarettes.

    Effective in June last year, California changed the legal age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21. The same measure, signed by California Gov. Jerry Brown, said vaping products would be regulated as tobacco products. The new ordinance states that "flavored tobacco products promote youth initiation of tobacco use," while "menthol, in particular, cools and numbs the throat to reduce throat irritation and make the smoke feel smoother."

    Ray Story, CEO of Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association, an industry association, thinks the new ordinance is "extremely irresponsible."

    Story agrees with getting rid of vaping product flavors and packaging with cartoon characters meant to target children but, he believes that many smokers use e-cigarettes to transition away from harmful cigarettes. He considers vaping a form of harm reduction, a treatment philosophy that proposes reducing use and negative impacts of drugs for those people who are unable or simply unwilling to stop.

Rep. Duncan Hunter Talks Vaping Bill

TVECA to Endorse Prague VapeCon

The TVECA(Tobacco, Vapor, Electronic Cigarette Association) announced its support for the Prague VapeCon for August 11-13. Ray Story of the TVECA will also be one of the main speakers for the B to B Conference that will be held on Friday, August 11.

What makes Prague VapeCon so unique is the Open Air Festival being held at the same time. Prague VapeCon (PVC) will be a ticketed adults only event for the Industry and outside its iconic venue, just outside the doors will be an event for the whole public. It is being called the Open Air Festival and will feature beer form Guinness, food and music from leading bands all across Europe. It will also be attending by the medical community that supports our Industry and they will explain the benefits these products can have for the public.

What also makes the PVC unique is that not only is Prague the world headquarters of Vape House, the worlds fastest growing franchise, Vape House is sponsoring almost all Czech Vape shops to exhibit and sell at the show. Never before has a show received such local support of the PVC. This also comes about by the active cooperation and support of the Czech Government, a leading proponent of our Industry and recently rated as a leading supporter of Vaping. The Czech Republic is the first in Europe to place a ban on smoking and specifically excluding Vaping from that Ban.
