    I wish that CASAA hadn’t waited til the last minute to do something. Where the fuck have they been? Deeming has been going on for years now! Sorry, I know it’s not you but I’m kinda disappointed in them.

    Quick question for those of you that order from Chefs. Does it normally take more than 10 days? :( I did the cheapest shipping that had no tracking. Maybe that's what I get for trying to save a few $$ boo. I won't do that next time.

    I always use the cheapest option with no tracking. Usually 7 days door to door but my last order was only 5 days. Never had an issue with no tracking.

    Thanks! Oh I wasn't worried as far as it never getting here I was just curious as to how long. I have several people I promised to send some juice to. Making them wait after I promised bothers me more than anything. In the future I will wait till I have the flavors in hand :)

    Only one I ever tell folks to watch and support is VTA now. They seem to be actually trying to get stuff done. Hell, who knows, I could be wrong but so far they have gotten a few things ( like taxing the crap out of ejuice ) in certain states over turned by showing up at the meetings etc etc

    Hmm, I wonder why? Do others know something? Well, as I said I could be wrong. No clue.

    If I am recommending a place I shouldn't though, someone pm me please and fill me in.

    This takes a few minutes, but phone calls are arguably more meaningful than emails. Please consider calling!

    Subject: NATIONWIDE FLAVOR BAN! URGENT CALL TO ACTION!

    On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, Donald Trump, along with HHS secretary Alex Azaar, announced that the administration would be banning all flavored vapor products from the market. The move is in response to early findings from the National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) that show the number of young people who vape has increased by 25% in 2019 (accompanied by a 28% decline in teen smoking).

    The White House needs to hear from adult vapers and anyone who loves a vaper! A flavor ban won’t protect our children, but it will harm their parents if they go back to smoking cigarettes.

    Light Up The Switchboard
    At The Whitehouse!
    202-456-1414


    You can also call:
    White House Comment Line (202) 456-1111

    Sen Rick Scott Phone: (202) 224-5274
    Sen Marco Rubio Phone: (202) 224-3041
    Rep Ross Spano Phone: (202) 225-1252
    Sen Darryl Rouson Phone: (727) 822-6828 (District)
    Phone: (850) 487-5019 (Capital)
    Rep Adam Hattersley Phone: (813) 657-7781 (District)
    Phone: (850) 717-5059 (Capital)

    On your call:
    The operator will likely ask where they can direct your call. Simply tell them that flavored vapor products saved your life; and tell them “We Vape, We Vote."
    Be polite, be brief, and say thank you.

    So I’m gonna guess Vuse has passed the PMTA. I turned on the TV this afternoon and have seen 3 ads so far. And now #4.....right now.

    Getting me hot under the collar again.......

    Mixing a strawberry jam and cream donut. High hopes! Also tweaked my coconut butterscotch banana recipe. Almost there......

    Sounds yummy!
    Try to ignore the commercials. I just hardly watch TV anymore. I got tired of BP ads and I don’t like Big Vape ones, either.

    I just had a horrible thought.

    What is it about cigarettes that DRIVES people to keep smoking?

    We are looking at the wrong thing folks.

    We better move it. Stock up on nicotine.

    If there's one single thing that Big Tobacco wants in its own pocket, it's the thing that people get addicted to. It's next. Just you watch.

    Oh I agree. I’m definitely stocking up. Just got two liters, will get two more shortly. I’m almost 50, so according to the calculator, I should be ok....especially if I cut down my nicotine to 1.5 from 3.

    Eh, maybe two more after that.

    This just does not seem right. Obviously doesn't take into account juice made for others, but still.

    So are you really only vaping only 5 mg a day? And buying a 3785 ml bottle of nicotine?

    Mine looked about right. 6mg, 5ml a day, 100mg, 240ml parameters gave me 2.39 years per bottle.

    The last bottle (120ml) I bought last December, I haven't quite finished it yet, and I have enough juice mixed out of that bottle to easily last me beyond this coming Christmas.

    Yup 5mls a day and 3785ml is a gallon. I'm pretty sure that's what I bought last time. Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

    With 1 liter it says it'll last 6 years. With all the juice I make for people, it's probably close to 1 year.

    Well I just ordered another 240ml from LNW, and according to that calculator, if I cut down to 5mg, I'm good. I have over 10 years' worth of nicotine.

    I will be amazed if I live longer than that. At any rate I doubt I will want to still be vaping at the age of 75.

    yeah, pay up sucka.

    i did the calculator, and it work out about right. i doubt i would outl;ive 3 liters. that would be 15 years.

    but i have also been thinking, how long will this ban crap go on.

    Me personally? I’m stocking up for the long haul. Either way it falls, I’ll have enough nicotine to last me the rest of my life. How long did it take the US to listen to the Royal College of Physicians about cigarettes? Way too fucking long. There are plenty of people who are against vaping of any kind.....and they have money to back them up. The landscape of vaping is definitely gonna change in the next few months. Even if we win this one, the May 2020 thing is looming large. Big Tobacco/Pharma is determined to eradicate vaping.....except THEIR pods and liquids. It’s already happening.

    Take up a mandatory donation for a mini freezer. No donation=no juice.

    It was almost 2 years after the U.K. sounded the alarm on the dangers of smoking before the U.S. did likewise despite knowing better. That alone tells you just how much they were/are concerned about the populace as a whole.

    It seems like since we were able to quit smoking pretty painlessly by vaping, there are a lot of people who are pissed off since they think we didn’t suffer enough or some shit like that.
    So they want to make us use pods and no flavored liquids. And save the kids from the dread vaping epidemic. FM sideways!!

    I've been having intermittent actual anxiety attacks over this stupid shit.

    I'm SO angry that the general public--including close friends of mine who don't vape (but of whom many have smoked, either now or in past) -- seems to be swallowing the propaganda re "h armful effects of vapin g" hook, line and sinker. I am not even sure what to say to them. I don't want to bombard them with science or give them a political speech about big tobacco and big pharma... It's driving me nuts.

    When I was younger I had a lot of energy for activism. Not so much now, and I just feel demoralized by this insanity.

    Does anyone happen to have a really stunning blurb (preferably with links) that explains to non-vapers wtf is happening?

    I wish I did.....the only thing you can tell them is that this is the beginning of a slippery slope. If vaping can be outlawed/banned, who says anything that is deemed “harmful”, especially to children, wouldn’t be.
