Vaping gains popularity by the day and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.
For those of us relatively new to the concept, “vaping” is when someone uses a device that heats up liquid which turns into water vapor that is then inhaled just as you would with a cigarette. It is called “vaping” because, although it looks like smoke, the device emits only water vapor. And unlike cigarette or marijuana smoke, it is typically odorless and evaporates within about 3 seconds.
Vapers are devout. For many, this isn’t a hobby; it’s a lifestyle, a brotherhood, a community, a movement fighting for a “right to vape,” and a religion for reformed smokers. Many credit the surge in the vaping lifestyle to social media, where hashtags like “#vapelyfe” and “#chickswhovape” have thousands of posts. On Instagram, you don’t have to go far to find vapers—like a woman who calls herself “PureFantasiaVape”—who credits vaping to saving her life, and calls her followers “family.” There is even a popular YouTube channel completely devoted to vaping called the Plumes of Hazard. The vape craze is incredibly fast-moving. With 15,000 vaporizer shop owners across the county, 466 brands of vaporizers, and 7,764 flavors of “e-liquid” on the market, vaping is growing faster than the FDA can regulate, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your views on it all.
