Not happy with just trying to ban vaping indoors for ludicrous reasons the state of New York is now looking to ban e-juices all together.

The current bill is called Bill S6939B-2013 and here’s what it says…

Prohibits the sale or provision of any quantity of electronic liquid used to refill an electronic cigarette or cartridge; defines “electronic liquid” as any liquid composed of nicotine and other chemicals that is sold for use in electronic cigarettes.

Not only would that effectively kill the vaping industry in New York but it would put a lot of people out of work not to mention the business owners themselves. Is the state going to reimburse them for their losses? I seriously doubt it. For some reason pre-filled e-cigs like Blu are exempt from this ban.

The state claims they’re doing this for health reasons. So why don’t they ban smoking too or instead of? As I’ve said before there are too many people in the government making money off of tobacco whether it’s the politicians themselves or doctors and scientists doing tobacco studies. None of them want to see the money disappear.

If you live in the Empire State and want to contact you representative to tell them how stupid this bill is you can find their information here. I would recommend either writing an actual letter to them or making a phone call to their office. This is what gets their attention the most. Don’t forget to always be polite when dealing with government figures. It makes us appear more credible in discussing our opinions.
