Vapor shops growing in popularity in SWFL
With its digital technology, VUSE gives adult smokers considering e-cigarettes an innovative, high-quality product from a leading tobacco company. Unlike other e-cigarettes currently on the market, VUSE is completely designed and assembled in the U.S., and, as an additional quality step, VUSE incorporates automated manufacturing to ensure a consistently reliable cartridge every time. VUSE will be sold in a rechargeable format. VUSE has been designed to offer the affordability and convenience of a disposable e-cigarette, while providing on-going cost savings and reduced environmental impact by being rechargeable, Cordisco said. The VUSE Solo and VUSE System will be sold in retail outlets in Colorado beginning in July. VUSE Solo includes a flavor cartridge, original or menthol, a rechargeable VUSE PowerUnit and a USB charger. The VUSE System includes three flavor cartridges, two original and one menthol, a rechargeable VUSE PowerUnit, both a USB charger and an AC wall adapter, and a carrying case.

“He’s tried the gum, he’s tried the patches,” Ratzmann said. He hopes vapor does the trick. “We’re hoping that he’s going to do this for a couple months and maybe get off the vapor and the cigarettes,” he added. For now, hoping is all he may be able to do.

Antismoking groups push for veto of R.I. e-cigarette legislation
At the end of the day, what we feel is important is that Rhode Island enact a law that keeps this out of the hands of minors, said Hogan, who is also a former Rhode Island lobbyist. Bottom line. The North Carolina-based company has pushed for legislation banning e-cigarette use by minors in dozens of states, including Rhode Island, this year, as it prepares to roll out its own e-cigarette line, VUSE. Governor Chafee spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger says he is still evaluating the bill, which was introduced by Senate Majority Leader Dominick Ruggerio, D-North Providence, and had not been officially transmitted to his office as of Tuesday. Chafee has six days from when he receives the bill to sign it into law, veto it or let it become law without his signature. If approved, Rhode Island would join roughly two dozen other states that ban minors from using e-cigarettes, according to tobacco and e-cigarette industry officials. The legislation comes as more attention is being focused on the products, which have been widely distributed for less than a decade.
