    NJoy. Seriously?? Getting Screwed Over by Cigalikes.

    From Reddit.
    Wow. No surprises, but to see it unfolding is just mindblowing

    Yep, they are backing it, as they are big enough to comply and hence they will ensure an even larger slice of the market for themselves in the UK.

    We really need to keep out of UK/EU/US debates. We don't need or want them coming over here.

    Sorry neo, but each and every last, poor, motherfucking one of us is in the same boat!!!! The puppets or should I say muppets, that attempt to rule our lives, have very long strings. Is our destiny, 'our' destiny, or someone/thing else's??? Evil is upon us, and there is nowhere to hide.

    yep, no surprise, they're just out to secure their financial stake. If/When they are regulated the prices will spike under the guise of improved testing, quality control and regulation and they will be selling the exact same product as they do today with no change other than the regulator's logo on the product/packaging.

    EDIT: Isolationism no longer works in a world as connected as it is now.

    Bahahahaa. I picked up a new derogatory term from that reddit - corporate fucknugget!!

    Priceless. Intend to use it as much as possible. As well as all the subtle shades a fucknugget could come in.

    We all knew the shit would hit the fan once BigT got in there. And I do like the craft beer analogy they used. You could easily substitute beer for smokes, and compare vapers to craft brewers if they did to booze what they did to smokes. Imagine the uproar if it looked like only huge conglomerate fucknugget companies were the only ones allowed to play in the sandpit, and craft brewers were priced out of the market, or one of their crucial ingredients was banned, or given out to them in tiny amounts.

    No surprises there , I would surmise Njoy and Nicolites were actually behind the MHRA's stand in the first place ... the telling statement is

    "We began the licensing process some time ago and we are a long way down the road to complying with all the MHRA requirements "

    Now isnt it funny the MHRA only announced its intentions in the last week or so ?
    It would appear NJOY and NICOLITES had a touch of advanced warning , or could it indeed be that THEY ALONG WITH THE MHRA ARE SETTING THE AGENDA ?

    Now NO company spends a million dollars or two , UNLESS they know its going to earn them 10 !
    And certainly not if they don't know the goalposts they are aiming for !
    This stinks to high Hell of corruption to me , I would hazard a guess that the MHRA and these two companies have been colluding to achieve the outcome

    " MHRA hopes that if enough supplier go down the licensing route there will be a commercial imperative for the rest to follow " <----- THIS ...why does a Govt body hope this , when reading their press statement, it is GOING to be law by 2016 according to them ... this is basically an admission they know they are on untenable ground regarding the licensing nicotine liquid as a medicinal product and are betting that firms like NJOY and Nicolite will give them the respectability the MHRA's plans currently lack!!
    Plant the seed and reap the reward politics.
    I declare NJOY and Nicolite the enemy in the war of keeping vaping reasonably free and cost effective to the general vaper !

    This is ALL about profit maximisation , dirty deals under tables , and forcing out the little people .
    A firm such as NJOY etc , if it is worried about the safety of ecigs SHOULD FUND THE TESTING OF THEM for their own commercial gain , and not hide behind a Govts skirts .
    There is a huge difference between "we have tested all the ingredients in our products and offer a personal guarantee they will do you no harm" ,and " We have complied with the requirements of the MHRA and guaranteed our place in the market ( Oh and by doing so have sunk the free market and created a monopoly, just a little added bonus) "

    SHAME NJOY SHAME !
    SHAME NICOLITES SHAME !!!

    I have never liked Njoy or other proprietary 510 cigalikes, they are more expensive than they should be, they don't work for the majority of smokers that try them & they can't compete with an eGo type device, let alone a big battery mod.
    It's not about having too many flavor options or device options, its about what works. Ask most vapers that started with a cigalike & they'll tell you "I'd rather use an eGo".
