At great personal cost, this week I’ve looked into the world of celebrity vapers. People love celebrities don’t they, there are shelves of magazines all about celebrities doing things like standing about or moving – I’ve seen them in shops when I’ve been buying my meths. Yeh, people love celebrities.
It’s going to be made, the only question is when, and it’s going to document the rise of a cultural paradigm shift of the public use of nicotine. It will touch on the stories, the people and the products; a tale of millions escaping from cancer and the World Health Organisation.
This week, the entertaining and widely read Physician’s News carried a vape-related story under the headline “Doctors Want Hollywood to Cancel E-Cigs”.
“The Pennsylvania Medical Society passed a resolution calling on the American Medical Association to lobby federal agencies to prohibit celebrity endorsements and product placement of electronic cigarettes.”
Humans seem to be on a perpetual quest to experience the very best of something for one moment in their lives; what would constitute that in vape form? The greatest flavour? The biggest cloud? Or, would it involve the vaping event being combined with another activity? For some it is sub-ohming.
It’s been bugging me a lot lately.
In the 70s I was promised a future of jetpacks, hover cars, holidays on the Moon and peace through war. I got traffic jams, spiralling insurance, Butlins and Jeffrey Archer novels. Stuff simply isn’t panning out like it should.
The same thing is going on with the price of vaping kit.
There are many things you can’t do in public as the police are always at pains to point out to me. Also, vaping is becoming increasingly taboo in certain places - clearly something needs to be done to clear up the confusion…and I’m just the kind of guy to wave away the fog.
Everybody needs the chance to relax, help Rob to solve these problems
At some point during the haze of the week just gone I received news of a juice. The vendor or manufacturer, I can’t recall which, included a snippet of a review:
“It’s an unctuous juice with sweet and natural fruit syrup tones.”
Professor Michael Siegel announced this week that his plans to carry out research into an aspect of electronic cigarettes have been cancelled. The Behavioral Study of Cigarette and Tobacco Substitution (BSCiTS) study was due to compare the effectiveness of e-cigs with NRT on smoking behavior. In itself, the announcement was pretty much predicted – it was the manner of its delivery that is interesting.
