The Latest E Cig Headlines

E cigs continue to make headlines around the world as vaping continues to further immerse itself in the mainstream of society. Here is a look at some of the news that e cigarettes have been making in recent weeks.

NY Judge Hands Victory to Vapers

In early February, a New York judge ruled that vaping is not the same as smoking, therefore bans on electronic cigarettes will not always be enforced the same way as bans on smoking. A New Yorker named Shawn Thomas was fined for vaping on the subway where smoking was not permitted. Thomas took his case to court where he emerged victorious.

UK Considering Prescribing E Cigs

In the UK, smoking has become such a problem that the UK National Health Service is considering prescribing E cigs in an effort to lower cancer rates and fight cigarette use. The NHS has declared smoking to be 95% safer than smoking tobacco. It is estimated that a move to prescribe E cigs would save the NHS billions of pounds annually.

E Cig Popularity Growing

Despite some negative news reports about vaping, its popularity continues to rise. A new study just revealed that 8.8 million Google searches about vaping were done in 2014. Another eye-opening fact is that online searches in The U.S. for e-cigarette information between 2009 and 2015 have become much more popular than searches for traditional cigarettes, such as smokeless tobacco or nicotine gum and patches.

Hundreds of exhibitors will be in attendance at the Cabo Center for what will be billed VPX Detroit. Blue Label Elixir is the Gold Sponsor & Badge Sponsor for the event.

Studies working in favor of E Cigs

From 2010 to 2013, electronic cigarette use in the United State doubled, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, and that trend has shown no signs of slowing down.
