    Crap missed it,How does this make news when our gov says there's not enough information on it to make any decisions on it.I am still yet to hear a positive story on vaping in the news/paper/radio.Imagine a head line Juicewhore has just released best flavour yet.Makes it so much harder to tell people what we are doing is a better alternative when all they see and hear is negative.

    Well what do you expect. If they dont understand it then it cant be any good. Im sure you hear it from friends, family and work mates. They are ignorant and blissfully happy being that way.
    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    I have no doubt there's a worldwide push ATM of negative publicity for vaping.

    It's become too popular, costing Big Tobacco and Pharma sales.. and they're flexing they're muscles.
    They're building negative public opinion so they can start swaying things in their favour and gaining sales through regulation, and releasing their own products that they can control sales and profit.
    I think we need be very worried about the future, and the freedom to buy the hardware and juices we want.

    Well, they started out saying that there's been a massive increase in kids taking up ecigs.
    Then they went on to say we don't know if it's safe.
    Then they had an american guy who was vaping with a mod and asked him did he think it was safer than smoking, and he answered "yes".
    The reporter said "Well, you hope so, anyway, don't you?"
    That was pretty much it.
    Apart from the intro, it was all american content, and all stuff taken from clips I've seen online before.
    The whole deal.. the slightly odd looking user, the guy in the wood panelled office with a white coat on.
    A couple of celebrities mentioned who have been reported to be vaping and endorsing the products.

    In other words it was rehashed crap, with no actual journalism done, just to fill in a empty slot in the programming & misinform the masses with.
    Did I sum it up properly?
