City of San Clemente Votes Down e-cigarette Ban

To vape or not to vapeLast year the State of California’s Air Quality Management District (AQMD) threatened to declare beach fire pits illegal because of their health dangers. They argued that the pollution was harming the health of millions and threatened our local ecology, too. But after a strong and well-organized response by beach-loving families and activists, the AQMD backed down, leaving us all free to use our local fire pits — from Califia to Capo Beach.

This year vaping takes the stage as the new boogie man for overreaching regulators and uninformed politicians to attack. Never to miss an opportunity to tell adults how to live, politicians in major cities across the U.S. have decided to treat vaping as if it were the same as cigarettes.

Like New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles, our beach community of San Clemente took a closer look at regulating vapers. The city’s Parks and Recreation department had already made the unanimous recommendation to ban the devices citing unfounded fears that the devices promoted smoking and marijuana use. But three council members, Mayor Tim Brown, Bob Baker and Chris Hamm, however, rejected the ban.

Brown said prohibiting the devices was “a bridge too far.” Baker and Hamm both added that they had friends who use e-cigarettes and shared how the devices have helped them curtail smoking.

So on April 3, 2014 the City of San Clemente took the reasonable course of action and voted down the overreaching restrictions.

Huzzah!

What’s that PG/VG/Nicotine Infused Liquid Called?

E-Liquid, E-Juice, Vape Juice, or What?

When it comes to describing the liquid blend of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and nicotine, no clear standard exists. In the San Clemente/Capo Beach area of Southern California, we mostly hear folks reference their PG/VG blends as juice or ejuice.

But, anyone can have their favorite term, so we decided to consult the all-knowing-Google to find out what words others around us are choosing. In comparing e-Juice, eJuice, e-Liquid, eLiquid, vape liquid and many other terms, the obvious trends were fascinating.

PG + VG + Nicotine = Say What?

In January 2010, the first vaping term appeared: e-Liquid. Then in May 2011 people began dropping the hyphen in favor of the easier-to-type: eLiquid. A few months later in January 2012 a whole new word appeared and quickly gained traction — again, without the hyphen — ejuice.

A year later in January 2013 “vape juice” and “nicotine juice” arrived in the Googleverse to describe the PG/VG blends used in vaping. And clearly, vape juice quickly matched ejuice in popularity.

Which term will ultimately come out ahead? We’ll have to wait and see. How knows … maybe something new!

Has Vaping Exposed a Devastating Achille’s Weakness of Big Tobacco?

Bye-Bye, Marlboro Man and Joe Camel

Has anybody taken a look at Google Trends lately to see what’s happening in the Vape World?

Google Trends Comparing USA Search Activity for Vape, Marlboro and Camel

Google Trends Comparing USA Search Activity for Vape, Marlboro and Camel

Let’s take a look at Google searches for “Vape” — as in, to inhale vaporized nicotine — and contrast those results to the big brands “Marlboro” and “Camel” and guess what we find?

This newly coined term has gained tremendous traction while those mighty brands quietly languish. These trends bode well for society and smokers in particular with possibilities of providing serious societal relief from the intractable ills of combustible tobacco and their monied-interests.

Alas, such powerful groups have suddenly awoken to their risks and have begun to mobilize against this trend — seeking to stop its surging popularity through overhyped fear-mongering and pell-mell regulatory actions in major cities across the U.S.

How do these facts square with the sudden surge in regulatory news?

Who are the lobbyist who’ve sudden appeared in major cities in rapid succession to stir up ecig bans and stymie the growth of vape usage and sales?

Are these city council hearings mere coincidences? Or connections to a more disruptive trend that threatens the very heart of a deeply connected and powerful industry?

Maybe some serious journalists will step in to investigate, instead of adding their voices to the shadowy fear-mongers that have much to lose and little to gain.
