Almost daily I here of new rules and regulations that’s ripping away at what we know of as vaping. If we can’t pull together as one solid voice, nothing said here or any other forum will be heard. A huge effort is needed if you expect to be able enjoy vaping as you know it. In lieu of some of the turmoil of forums banning honest forum members abouts comments that don’t adhere to said forum rules is one reason why the vape community can’t make a case against the establishment that’s against us all. As long as forums fight amongst one another, the whole vape community will remain segmented. All these little tiny communities will not be heard. An effort need to be made to bridge these differences so we can all speak out together. So many of us are so worried about their status in the community and little focus is placed on vaping as a whole. How can ECF, ELR Forum, Reddit and VU all pull together? That’s a lot of people that may be able to make a difference together. Some type of proactive approach need to be made thwart some of this BS that’s being forced upon us. These forum heads need to unite these forums if we stand a chance. Most vapers don’t even know of the Deeming Regulations. Forums and vape shop owners need to get the word out and sign people up to show strength against the establishment.
How can we do this? If you think this isn’t your problem too, you are sadly mistaken! You have a responsibility or you will suffer in the end.
Word up brutha ! I will keep emailing congressmen and keep signing ! I agree strength in numbers, but how can we unite with these other forums? we need some form of vapestock lol that we can all gather and sign and while we’re at have some contests and prizes IF U SIGN
I do not do any type of social media, in fact, this is the only forum I have ever posted too, I have signed with CAASA and I am going to make some flyers with the website on it and take it to my local vape shop so they can hand them out with vape purchases…it may get a few more people to sign and become interested in uniting for our vaping rights…
To coin a phrase, the highway to hell is paved with good intentions. We need an aggressive in your face campaign to wake the sleeping giant. I don’t have the intellect to lead a campaign but I will stand at that persons side committedly. I’m frustrated.
I think most people here are aware. Whether most have signed up with CASAA… I don’t know. My main concern is alerting those not on forums and uniting forums for some type of super petition. That plus getting the word out to those that’s not on forums would help get our numbers up. There are millions that vape, but only a small percentage know their vaping future may be in jeopardy.
Very well said…I think we could get the word out by spreading it through our local vape shops everywhere…vapors need eliquid and what better way than to hand out some sort of flyer with critical information about vaping rights on it when they come to buy supplies…it may open some eyes to the issues we as vapers face
Advise me on what I can do along those same lines. I’m committed, just not as knowledgeable. I have about 10 vape shops in my area. I have a printer. I can message you my email. I’ll back my words with action.
They are the ones who should be most concerned and leading the campaign. The future of most vape shop is very uncertain if the regulations go thru as is.
As far as the vapers I know my first question is do you about the deeming reg. I explain what it is and how vaping could change. Some don’t show much concern but they will regret it when they can’t get liquid or have to pay double or triple for it.
All they need to know is here. You can print what you feel is important and pass it along. I’ve also got concerned vapers email address and send them this link.
I realize I have not been doing my part in keeping our vaping rights. I just followed @Pro_Vapes link to How you can help, and just emailed my lawmakers and joined the CASAA movement. I am with @SunnyT in going to our local vape stores with flyers to hand out to help unite and inform the vaping public. BTW @SunnyT is my roommate and best friend so we can work together in our area to help get the word out. She has led me to this forum and helped inform me about vaping rights being taken away. I thank everyone who is helping keep our vaping rights alive!
