Do Your Part to Keep Electronic Cigarettes on the Market

Join the Fight for Vaping Products with SmokeStik and CASAA Before it’s too Late

Electronic cigarettes are in danger of being removed from the open marketplace, making it much more difficult for consumers to purchase vaping products across the country. If nothing is done, the Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (TCA) could effectively eliminate 99.9% of currently operating electronic cigarette companies. This would be a crippling blow for the ecig industry and vaping enthusiasts everywhere, but there is still time to prevent this from happening. Join the SmokeStik ULTRA team in this battle for our freedom to vape, and ensure that the most successful smoking cessation product ever created remains accessible to all.

The Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act could ironically cripple an industry that has helped countless former smokers quit. The language of the TCA bill categorizes e-cigs as “tobacco products” and would thus be subjected to the same extreme regulations as traditional cigarettes. Producers of e-cigs would then be forced to submit a Premarket Tobacco Application in order to operate, which is a highly expensive and time-consuming process. Filing this series of documents is so expensive and difficult that the FDA predicts only 25 will be submitted in total, just a minute fraction of the industry.

The TCA threatens to decimate the electronic cigarette industry, which could tragically shift a lot of power back into the hands of big tobacco while severely curtailing vape culture in the United States. So what can we do to stop it?

Urging Elected Officials to Change the “Grandfather Date” for Electronic Cigarettes

You can still take action and help prevent ecigs from being removed from the market, but time is quickly running out. There is a “grandfather date” included in the TCA, which currently allows vaping products created before February 15, 2007 to be exempt from such regulations. However, there is a movement to change this date to April 25, 2014, which could potentially save hundreds of electronic cigarette businesses and vaping products.

To encourage lawmakers to support the extended grandfather date, the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) has issued a call to action with a pre-made letter you can send to local and state representatives with ease. This process only takes about two minutes of your time, and could be the difference we need to win this fight.

If you love vaping, the time to act is now. Stand up, speak out, and change the future of vaping today.

E-cigs on the Rise, Teenage Smoking Rates Plummet

Forbes calls Electronic Cigarettes “the most successful smoking cessation product” ever Invented

The massively popular American business magazine, Forbes, recently released a fantastic article on vaping culture and the effect of electronic cigarettes on teen smoking rates in the United States. The Smokestik team has recognized the positive health benefits of ecigs over traditional cigarettes for years, but it seems as though the general public is finally starting to take notice. When a publishing giant like Forbes comes out with a widely-shared article on the positive effects of electronic cigarettes and “vape” is the Oxford Dictionary word of the year, you can tell there is real progress being made.

The Forbes article demonstrates how teenage smoking rates have been cut in half, and “that halving of teen smoking rates coincides with the invention and introduction of vaping.” Other professional studies on electronic cigarettes have produced similar data, but some have been worried that increased ecig use could lead to eventual cigarette addiction. However, these same studies have disproved such notions: “…people use vaping equipment instead of smoking, not as a gateway to it nor does vaping increase smoking prevalence. It is thus a substitute, not a complement.”

ULTRA Single Kit ULTRA Select eLiquid

Despite so much evidence to the contrary, some within the American health community still speak out against electronic cigarette use. This backlash against vaping, while nearly all studies  are showing positive health benefits when compared to traditional cigarettes and dramatically lower teenage smoking rates, is quite perplexing. However, most of this dissent comes from the pharmaceutical industry, and it is easy to understand why. Perhaps my favorite quotation from this article reads:

“…there’s also those over in Big Pharma who have invested very large sums (it really does cost up to $1 billion to bring a new drug to market) in various pharmaceutical smoking cessation aids. And they would be very interested in being able to market those without having to face the competition…”

Of course. Why should we be surprised? In every great movement, health-related or otherwise, there are those in financial power looking to stop the inevitable turn of the tide. However, these large corporations in the pharmaceutical industry can shell out millions of dollars on advertising all they want. Teenage smoking rates cut in half, numerous studies showing the benefits of electronic cigarettes over traditional smoking, and the widespread prevalence of ecigs in our global culture all show that vaping is here to stay.

The Active Electronic Cigarette Community on Reddit

E-Cig News, Reviews, and Tips can be found at /r/electronic_cigarette

The team here at Smokestik has been active within the electronic cigarette community for many years, and has recently increased our presence online. The recent release of the Smokestik ULTRA has drawn effusive praise and enthusiasm from our fans and customers, who are hailing it as the Ecig of the future.

The Smokestik ULTRA is a high-class eGo design that can be modified and refilled, in contrast with our Smokestik Classic, which is disposed of after use. This electronic cigarette revolution is catching fire within the digital community as well. During our time spent engaging with our fans online, we stumbled upon an active, friendly community of Ecig enthusiasts over at Reddit.com. The wildly popular user-driven content site, dubbed the “front page of the internet,” contains an zealous and well-informed group of electronic cigarette advocates. The “subreddit” is called /r/electronic_cigarette, and the community currently boasts over 70,000 members who share ideas, advice, and are always looking for new Ecig aficionados to join.

A Diverse Ecig Community for the Modern Digital Age

Searching electronic cigarette forums for advice and friendly discussion can be very frustrating, as tempers tend to flare whenever there is a disagreement. Wonderful questions and initially helpful threads can be dissolve into name calling and flame-throwing very quickly. However, Reddit’s most active electronic cigarette community does not tolerate such behavior, and users will be banned for serious offenses.

Because an account is required to join the Ecig subreddit, users tend to remain cordial, even during a disagreement. An account is not required to browse the high-quality electronic cigarette content and read the discussions taking place, but membership is completely free and necessary for participating in the conversation.

A recent survey of this electronic cigarette community showed that members are located on every continent, and 84% used to smoke traditional cigarettes. 72% have kicked the nasty habit entirely with the help of Ecigs as well. The poll also explained that the average user encouraged at least 2 friends to try electronic cigarettes, displaying the helpful spirit of this subreddit. If you are an Ecig enthusiast, we encourage you to peruse their forum and reach out to other members. When you’re done, please come back here and tell us about your experience!

Big Tobacco is Losing the War against the E-Cigarette

“Cigalike” Smokers are moving on to more Advanced Electronic Cigarettes

The SmokeStik ULTRA is a revolutionary electronic cigarette with a refillable, high-quality eGo design, making it one of the very best e-cigarettes available on the market. We introduced the ULTRA to overwhelmingly positive reviews, despite our fans being so used to the SmokeStik Classic, a disposable electronic cigarette that is still available for purchase. it seems as though smokers are fine with moving on to a superior product, even if they have spent decades using something different. This is even more apparent when looking at the advent of e-cigs altogether, as Big Tobacco steadily loses ground and electronic cigarettes grow exponentially in popularity.

Despite doing everything they can to force former smokers to once again use their product, large tobacco companies have ridden the coat-tails of ecig industry innovators for years. You probably know of “cigalikes,” which are Big Tobacco’s version of the electronic cigarette, making up the majority of the ecig market since it’s inception. That’s right, the biggest cigarette companies in the world also control the biggest portion of the ecig industry, despite fighting it at every turn.

ULTRA Kit Classic Halligan Starter Kit

Of course, that was before last month, when refillable electronic cigarettes officially overtook cigalikes as the most popular vaping product on the market.

This is an incredibly important turn of events, as Big Tobacco has made a fortune on smoker’s lungs for decades, and early ecig advocates have been fighting for control of their own industry since it began. It is a new day, and as profit falls for tobacco companies every year, a healthier way to smoke is truly winning this war. A perfect example of this trend is smoking rates in the United Kingdom, which have dropped more than a full percentage point each of the past two years. Researchers say the advent of electronic cigarettes is by far the most likely cause of this decrease, which will continue to improve the quality of life for smokers and their families in the future.

The SmokeStik ULTRA and Classic are both flagships of the electronic cigarette industry, and we are very proud of that fact. We will continue to innovate and improve our products as we seek to help traditional cigarette smokers make the right life decision and escape from the chokehold of Big Tobacco companies. If you are a smoker looking to make a change, please contact us today. You aren’t alone in this fight, and we are always happy to help.

Current News Updates from the World of Electronic Cigarettes

SmokeStik ULTRA Presents the Latest and Greatest from Ecig and Vaping Culture

Tired of having the news media shove exaggerated claims about electronic cigarettes down your throat? Exhausted by click-bait headlines on social media and pundit commentary that has little basis in scientific fact? You’ve come to the right place, as SmokeStik ULTRA is the e-cig company that won’t hide it’s affinity for our product and the industry in general, but also deliver the straight facts.

After years of success with our disposable Smokestik Classic, we created a high-class eGo electronic cigarette design that is refillable and customizable for our valued customers! Along with the release of the SmokeStik ULTRA, we also unveiled an ergonomic new website and blog that is dedicated to providing you with easy-to-understand news updates from the world of electronic cigarettes. Speaking of which, let’s take a look at what is going on within the global Ecig community this past week.

Electronic Cigarettes Bring in Major Profit to South Carolina Jail

Regardless of your feelings about a prison making profit from inmates, this story exemplifies the power of electronic cigarettes and their positive affect on many diverse segments of society. Several jails have banned traditional cigarettes from use by inmates, but this has often lead to a spike in violence and thus less safety for those employed by the prison, especially guards.

An ingenious way to tackle this problem has come in the form of electronic cigarettes, which have been sold to inmates at Darlington County Detention Center in South Carolina for around $10 each. The generated revenue has been a huge boon to the local economy, and the initiative is expected to exponentially rise in popularity as other counties are starting to follow suit. As a result, inmates are less violent, prison guards are at less risk of physical harm, and the local economy gets a sizable monetary increase, all because of electronic cigarettes.

Despite opposition by several special interest groups, Ecigs have once again proved to have a positive effect everywhere traditional cigarette smoke has been a serious issue. Through advanced technology that improves every day, electronic cigarette smokers improve their health and free themselves from the over 7,000 toxins found in most traditional cigarettes. This is happening in unexpected communities across the globe, even within a prison located in the southern United States.

Coming Soon to Theaters Near You

A new film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline” stars Ethan Hawke and takes place in the present day. It even gives one lead character a very current accessory: an electronic cigarette.

Throughout the movie, actress Milla Jovovich puffs away on an e-cigarette called a SmokeStik. In one scene, signs for the brand hang in a convenience store next to condoms and calling cards.

The product’s cameo appearance comes courtesy of Canada-based SmokeStik International Inc.—in just the kind of paid-product placement that has been off-limits to traditional tobacco companies in Hollywood for nearly two decades.

“I don’t see a problem with glamorizing something that saves lives,” says SmokeStik’s chief executive, Bill Marangos. Like others in his business, he considers e-cigarettes to be a less-harmful alternative to traditional smokes.

“Cymbeline” is a movie with limited distribution. But the SmokeStik deal has far-reaching implications for Hollywood and big tobacco—two industries that have been entwined in a complicated relationship for more than half a century.

The film business was hooked on smoking by the time Audrey Hepburn wielded an elegant cigarette holder in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and Humphrey Bogart lighted up at Rick’s Café Américain in “Casablanca.”

But for the past 16 years, cigarette companies have been blacklisted in Hollywood. Thanks to a sweeping settlement agreement between the state governments and big tobacco intended to minimize smoking’s glamorous sheen, cigarette brands aren’t allowed to pay for product placement in films or hire celebrity spokespeople.

E-cigarette companies, however, aren’t bound by that 1998 agreement with 46 state attorneys general, and are moving quickly to enlist Hollywood in pitching their products.

At the same time, big-tobacco firms have been snapping up the makers of e-cigarettes, whose exemption from traditional marketing rules opens the door for the old guard to do business with Hollywood once again through their new subsidiaries.

The collaborations come as federal and state authorities have yet to issue broader rules on marketing and permitted use that would cover most of the e-cigarette industry.

“I think they’re quite aware that at some point, regulation is going to happen,” says Pamela Ling, a professor at the University of California San Francisco who studies tobacco marketing. “There is a spirit of, ‘As long as we can get away with this, let’s do it now!’ ”

Meanwhile, e-cigarette sales grew to more than $710 million last year, up from $2.2 million in 2009, according to IRI, a Chicago-based market-research firm. That doesn’t include sales conducted over the Internet or at specialty tobacco or “vape shops,” pushing the number closer to $2 billion, according to some industry estimates.

High-profile manufacturers have hired celebrity representatives to feed that growth, like Lorillard Inc.’s Blu brand, which enlisted former talk show host Jenny McCarthy. But the most aggressive moves have come from small, independent operators who say their distance from traditional tobacco makes Hollywood more willing to work with them.

Such is the case with SmokeStik, which plans to feature products in “Cymbeline” and about five other films, says Mr. Marangos. “Cymbeline” producers didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Mr. Marangos wouldn’t say how much the company paid for the placements, but he does allow: “They know we pay well.”

Vapor Corp., a publicly traded company whose brands include Krave, is getting ready for its close-up with direct help from Hollywood: In March, Relativity Media LLC CEO Ryan Kavanaugh joined the Vapor Corp. board of directors. He is paid in company shares to present opportunities for Vapor Corp. integration into films and television shows.

Mr. Kavanaugh, whose studio has distributed movies like “Don Jon,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and produces MTV’s “Catfish,” described his marketing strategy at an investor conference in March.

“What I offer: having access to the other side of the world, which is access to entertainment and film and talent and athletes and television, digital, music,” said Mr. Kavanaugh, according to an audio recording of the presentation.

Vapor Corp. is a client of Relativity’s marketing arm, and plans for the company include a “natural, integrated, viral campaign” for Vapor Corp.’s products over the next two years, he said. In a media environment where viewers often fast-forward through commercials, an advertising campaign must be so integrated into a feature that audiences don’t know they’re being marketed to, he said.

Vapor Corp. CEO Jeffrey Holman said the promotional strategy is likely to involve product placements in Relativity movies and TV shows, beginning at the script stage. He wouldn’t comment on specific plans while deals are still being negotiated. Mr. Kavanaugh recently helped get the company’s e-cigarettes into glitzy parties at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, he added.

If a traditional tobacco company were to participate in such a promotional partnership, Dr. Ling says, it “would be seen as totally distasteful and unethical behavior.” Mr. Holman called that an “unfair analogy,” saying his industry shouldn’t be lumped in with combustible cigarettes. “We’re the guys in the white hats,” he said.

The e-cigarette’s arrival in Hollywood comes as tobacco products are still seen in many films—appearing as props written into the script rather than paid-placement items. About 38% of top-grossing PG-13 movies in 2013 featured tobacco imagery, compared with 80% in 2002, according to a UC San Francisco report.

The same study, which covered about 1,700 films over an 11-year period, found tobacco imagery in just over 20% of G- and PG-rated movies and in more than 80% of R-rated movies in 2013—the highest share since 2007.

When he founded SmokeStik nearly seven years ago, Hollywood wasn’t on Mr. Marangos’s mind. A Toronto engineer and former three-pack-a-day smoker, Mr. Marangos attracted new customers by giving away e-cigarette starter kits in Ziploc bags.

Then a business associate met actor Justin Neill about five years ago in a freebie “gifting suite” at the Academy Awards. Mr. Neill’s career was fizzling; he’d started in commercials as a child and hadn’t worked much since a bit role as a pushy jock in 2002’s “Spider-Man.”

Mr. Neill, now a 33-year-old marketing executive, quickly became SmokeStik’s man in Hollywood.

His tactics were on full display on a recent Thursday night. He began the evening at a party for personal assistants of celebrities. Carrying a box of complimentary SmokeStiks for the crowd, he said, “I’ve seen firsthand the power of assistants.”

An old friend of Mr. Neill’s who worked for “Grey’s Anatomy” star Katherine Heigl got a SmokeStik to the actress. When Ms. Heigl used it during a 2010 appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman “—something SmokeStik says it didn’t ask her to do—the company couldn’t keep up with demand for two months. SmokeStik thanked Ms. Heigl by donating a portion of sales to an animal-rescue charity that the actress founded.

While Mr. Neill was spreading SmokeStiks across Hollywood, the e-cigarette began making its first unpaid appearances on screen. The effect wasn’t exactly glamorous.

In “The Hangover Part III,” for instance, actor John Goodman plays a mob kingpin who smokes e-cigarettes. The movie’s writer, Craig Mazin, appreciated the irony of an overweight hit man with the affectation of an e-cigarette.

Traditional cigarettes are “part of our collective film vocabulary,” says Mr. Mazin. “The e-cigarette is such a ridiculous analog. It just seems like such a goofy substitute.”

“Cymbeline” was recently screened at the Venice International Film Festival and was acquired for distribution in spring 2015 by a branch of Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.

For Mr. Neill, placing a SmokeStik into the hand of Ms. Jovovich, a former supermodel, can only enhance the product’s status.

“If Hollywood is doing it,” he says, “then it must be the best.”

Electronic Cigarette Health Update: Worried about Metals in E Cigs?

Safety of E-Cigarettes are once again Backed by Science

The media has a funny way of treating electronic cigarettes in the news, at times praising them as a wonderful alternative to traditional cigarettes and at others, portraying them as a dangerous health hazard that demands regulation. Most consumers have come to be very skeptical of traditional news outlets in the United States, as very few seem to provide an objective stance or story without some sort of ulterior motive. Here at SmokeStik ULTRA, we are very upfront about our support for electronic cigarettes, and we at least back our claims with scientific data from reputable sources.

This brings us to the subject of minor levels of metal found within electronic cigarette smoke. The media has sent this story to the top of several news outlets with exaggerated and outrageous headlines meant to scare the public into clicking on an article or tuning in to their channel. However, a recent interview with health and tobacco addition expert Riccardo Polosa has once again alleviated concerns about e-cig smoke.

Why Metals Found in Electronic Cigarette Smoke are of Little Concern

By putting scientific data in a sensible, easy to understand context, we better comprehend how electronic cigarettes affect our physical health. When asked if electronic cigarette enthusiasts should be concerned about recent findings of nickel and chromium in e-cig smoke, Polosa replied emphatically and without hesitation:

“They should not. Current findings indicate that e-cigarettes are by far less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. First, levels of metals found in these studies are well below the maximum permissible daily exposure from inhalational medications according to the US Pharmacopeia… considering the reports from the environmental protection agencies, vapers should be more concerned of the air they breathe in polluted cities rather than their vaping!”

-Riccardo Polosa, Worldwide Tobacco Addiction Specialist

There you have it, from a trained expert renowned for his understanding of tobacco addiction and human physical health. The polluted air found in major cities are more of an issue than inhaled electronic cigarette smoke. When compared to traditional cigarettes, these levels are even less alarming, as the thousands of toxins found in normal cigarettes make ecigs seem like a bastion of healthy living. When you have been addicted to traditional cigarettes, you know how true this is already. It is high time that the news media utilizes the scientific data available to them in order to present an unbiased story, rather than pandering for clicks with scary, exaggerated headlines.

International Airports in Miami, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas are Ecig Friendly

Included in last week’s news article was the recent development that the TSA has officially announced that electronic cigarettes are safe for travel in carry-on luggage. However, did you know there are also a number of United States airports that are 100% e-cigarette friendly?

For example, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas contains a designated smoking area outside their many terminals. However, electronic cigarette connoisseurs can enjoy their SmokeStik ULTRA anywhere throughout the airport! Vape in the terminal, next to the food court, even waiting for boarding in the passenger area. It is a wonderful illustration of how harmless the emitted water vapor truly is.

Here is a list of U.S. airports where e-cigs are currently permitted, and where they are banned:

Electronic Cigarettes Permitted Electronic Cigarettes Banned
McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas, NV) Los Angeles International Airport (Los Angeles, CA)
Miami International Airport (Miami, FL) San Francisco International Airport (San Francisco, CA)
Tampa International Airport (Tampa, FL) Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Seattle, WA)
Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (Minneapolis, MN) Denver International Airport (Denver, CO)
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (Washington, DC) Chicago Midway International Airport (Chicago, IL)
Dulles International Airport (Washington, DC) Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (Dallas, TX)
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (Phoenix, AZ) Philadelphia International Airport (Philadelphia, PA)
Charlotte Douglas International Airport (Charlotte,  NC) Boston Logan International Airport (Boston, MA)

After Electronic Cigarette Ban in New York, Smoking Rate Increases

This last April, the New York governing body revised the 2002 “Smoke-Free Air Act” to include the revolutionary electronic cigarette innovation that had become so popular. Thus, all e-cig smoking and vaporizing has now been officially banned indoors and in all New York public entertainment venues. It seems as though former traditional cigarette smokers who had moved on to electronic vaping lost the incentive to smoke Ecigs, and have thus reverted to old unhealthy habits.

Smoking rates in New York are up from 14 to 16 percent, which is extremely rare and against nearly all nationwide trends. Due to this effect, some are lobbying to reverse the new amendment, arguing that the ban is a direct cause of the smoking increase. The fight for electronic cigarettes is happening all over the world, and we must do our part to support healthy living and the future of smoking everywhere.

You can Now Pack Electronic Cigarettes in Carry-on Bags, according to TSA

In an interesting development for e-cigarette smokers everywhere, the TSA has formally approved electronic cigarettes for travel in carry-on luggage across the United States. This announcement was made through the Security Agency’s Twitter  and Instagram accounts, where all “Ecigs and vaping” devices were unequivocally given the green light for airline expeditions. The only exception would be in those rare cases where an electronic cigarette was modified to look like a weapon.

As e-cigarettes become more common and widespread in use, it was apparent that the TSA had to take a firm stance on the issue. Travelers with ecigs would attempt to hide their portable vaping devices in hidden luggage compartments, but this is entirely unnecessary according to this recent development.

If your electronic cigarette is not shaped like a gun, knife, or any other potentially dangerous weapon, it is 100% safe for you to travel with. As long as the TSA can tell that your device is an electronic cigarette at a glance, you are ready to fly with your healthy smoking companion.
