The Illinois House just tabled Bill HB3362, which would have made selling flavored e-liquids a Class A misdemeanor.

We live in interesting times. Vaping nicotine e-juice is the one thing that has been proven to actually help people to quit smoking while at the same time public support for vaping is at an all-time low.

It seems like all the news about local and state governments regulating e-cigarettes, taxing them, and even going out of their way to create anti-vaping propaganda really is all about the money.

The Washington Post recently analyzed tax data from Colorado’s Department of Revenue and determined that an astounding 700 million dollars worth of legal pot was sold in the state last year.

A few days ago, we wrote about the San Francisco Health Department’s ridiculous #curbit campaign to misinform people about vaping, and the hilarious social media backlash that resulted. Now we have news that, not content to be upstaged by the stupidity of the Californians, Alaska has launched their own anti-vaping campaign. The health department has
Brought to you by the same idiots who included vaping in the city’s smoking ban last year is a new campaign: #curbit.
