When the FBI drops charges on someone and in the same statement says that other people should not5 do this or they may face criminal charges, it usually means someone did something illegal. They just have the clout to not get arrested like the rest of us. Also, just want to be clear, I don't back anyone this race. Even the 3rd party candidates are a joke.

Comment Re:It's the cost of the labor, stupid (Score 1) 140

My mechanic is cash only, unlicensed. He also gives a 6 month warranty on his work as long as you are running nitrous in the engine. His work is the best I've had and he is the only guy that is extremely upfront with labor and parts cost, and doesn't charge extra for parts. I found this guy by word of mouth, and I now refuse to take my cars anywhere else.

As I understood it, the juice will still be legal to sell so long as it goes through an FDA approval for each Nic level of the juice, supplied in glass bottles, and is sealed. Besides how much money it would cost for the testing, this is pretty much a non issue, and plenty in the industry say is a good way to knock out the shady suppliers and manufacturers.

Where did it ever say that non-nicotine flavorings are being deemed a tobacco product? Its just a flavor extract in PG or VG... If its true, this is also the exact reason why most people are fighting against the regulations. While some would be good, coming down with an iron fist like this and crippling an industry is just terrible.

On a more humorous note, one of the vape shops said they would just sell their juice as personal flavored lubricants. Just add nic yourself.

The eCig is regularly put into conditions where no sane human would use them. The issue when using a device to do a 5 second draw (try it, its not easy when trying to inhale out of something with almost no air flow), with no word of factors like coil resistance, how hard the air was drawn through the system (inhale too hard, it wont wick fast enough), coil metal type, etc. Combine that with the fact that nobody uses that style anymore (eGo with a cardo tank, which require a much higher level of PG so it can wick properly), and you have a study that is entirely worthless.
