    "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.

    Cost of e-cigarettes remain higher in many countries:

    I have been comparing eliquid and vaping gear prices with Australia while living here in France...everything, with very few exceptions, is 20-45% more expensive here...there is absolutely no motivation to get onto vaping for the money, something that is a major factor in Australia IMO. The cost of cigartettes is about $8 AUD here and a 10ml eliquid is about the same price.....we sell a Mod for $75AUD, they sell the same here for 75 EUR...($115).....

    I can order from Oz and still save money, regardless of shipping costs.
    I will be travelling in time, please leave a message and I will get back to you last week.

    Yes, I noticed the same thing in the UK. It doesn't matter what it was, if it was $10 in Australia, it would be 10 Euro in the UK. That was back when the exchange rate was 40 something bloody cents...

    Edit: Fasttech must look pretty good in the EU....

    Prolly not surprising - Things atm appear to be going full circle- smoking for now only the rich, sugar under attack to be taxed, meat prices are through the roof where I live, apparently coffee prices are going to jump and so is chocolate- funny how these things are in many ways considered luxury items - and none well liked also by ph

    Not a conspiracy - more so interesting - we really are going full circle with who can afford what..

    US FDA stuff:
    Feds announce final e-cigarette rule that nearly bans them

    This looks really bad :/

    "That means nearly all every e-cigarette on the market — and every different flavor and nicotine flavour — might require a separate application for federal approval. Each application could cost $1 million or more, says Jeff Stier, an e-cigarette advocate with the National Center for Public Policy Research and industry officials"


    Meaning there are two main groups that would be able to jump easily through these hoops- and no doubt these two groups will ensure even less competition by attempting to monopolise the market further by employing already successful ecig manafacturers and nicotine producers through contracting?

    Bets on the TB industry jumping for this first - followed by pharma later maybe- with options for DIY no flavour to be phased out ...

    Not only every flavour, but every variation in PG/VG ratio, every variation in nicotine strength, will also require a separate application for approval (estimated to take 1500 man hours each to complete) ... yeah, I read the 499 pages overnight

    Expect a huge uptake of DIY or ... an inventive marketing strategy
