I recently got a call to action for a local county here in FL. I thought I would share the e-mail I sent to the council. Maybe other people could do the same and we can let each other know how effective the mails are.
so anyway, here is my email:
I am a resident of Lake Mary, FL. and I have heard about your latest e-cigarette legislation. Prohibiting the sale of Vaping products SHOULD be banned to anyone under the age of 18. Vaping is an adult activity and should be restricted to adults. However, I oppose banning the activity and restricting it only to those places where smoking is permitted. I vape for my health, and you would be forcing people like me to be exposed to second hand smoke, and the associated health risks.
Bans on smoking are set forth to ensure public health but all research to date shows that there is no risk to bystanders and vapor products are comparable to other smokeless nicotine products where nicotine is used. The ability to use electronic cigarettes in public spaces will actually improve public health by inspiring other smokers to switch and reduce their health risks by an estimated 99%.
The low risks of e-cigarettes is supported by research done by Dr. Siegel of Boston University, Dr. Eissenberg of Virginia Commonwealth, Dr Maciej L Goniewicz of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Dr. Laugesen of Health New Zealand, Dr. Igor Burstyn of Drexel University, and by the fact that the FDA testing, in spite of its press statement, failed to find harmful levels of carcinogens or toxic levels of any chemical in the vapor.
Electronic cigarette use is easy to distinguish from actual smoking. Although some e-cigarettes resemble real cigarettes, many do not. It is easy to tell when someone lights a cigarette from the smell of smoke. e-cigarette vapor is practically odorless, and generally any detectable odor is not unpleasant and smells nothing like smoke.
If you would like more information on how vaping saves lives you can go to the CASAA.org website, as well as the CASAA Research Library, for more information.
I began vaping to replace Tobacco smoking on Friday November 2 2012. I have lost weight, regained my ability to breath and generally improved my health as a result. I visit friends in Ocala frequently and we frequently go to local restaurants and public parks. I would not feel comfortable in an environment of restriction that the current proposal puts forth and urge you to remove the parts that restrict me only to areas where my health is at risk.

Without that ring, of course, the tank leaks like a sieve. I found a washer in my toolbox, a black hard-rubber type thing, that actually fits perfectly and seals it up fine (probably better than the original small white washer).
But I’ve gotten a little worried that maybe the juices that eat plastic will also eat away at that washer, and that I might be vaping petroleum products. Anyone have an opinion on this?
(p.s. I have found and ordered some replacement seal rings for the tank, and I’ve set it aside pending delivery of those, but I’m still interested in the opinions of some the chemists/engineers out there as to whether it’s safe to use household spare parts in a vaping tank).
I have gone up to 20% in flavorings and every batch tastes faint including 2% of Sucralose on some flavors…
juice has only steeped for 24 hours at this point, do I need to just wait longer?
I just got a vamo v2 and it keeps reading low voltage.It was first reading low ohms but i replaced the o-ring and it stopped reading low ohms.But now it wont stop reading low v.Can anyone help with this issue?
