Join over 1400 vapers in fighting social media's restrictions on vaping!
We need your help.
Vaping is an industry that has become more and more invisible to the public, thanks to increasing pressure from a host of outlets, restricting our ability to communicate with our customers.
It has recently been announced that both Instagram and Facebook will be hiding vaping related posts, and while this may not sound like much, it will have a significant impact on our business.
Will there be more vaping restrictions?
In 2017, the vaping industry faced its biggest challenge; The Tobacco Products Directive.

However, despite widespread compliance and the promise that no further changes would come into effect, it seems that TPD isn't done with us just yet.

As you all might know, the European Union released new controls on vaping recently, which comes with a whole host of restrictions around what you can and cannot buy. There has been a huge backlash again the polices, but we aren't here to start banging the war drums.
The Tobacco Products Directive is here to stay, and we need to start looking at what it can do for us in the UK rather than what it may be taking away.
But first lets look at why it happened. Why has vaping been hit with these controls after numerous medical bodies have gone on record saying that vaping is the best way to safely quit smoking? The reality of the matter is that we don't have a clear answer, but we can speculate.
