Go for it Vapoteurs! This is not another bloody petition! Please share and share and share.

I ask you to share this blog post. This is the situation yesterday, capturing progress with the European Free Vaping Initiative. To get this far has been a momentous task. Here is the Boiling Frog Blog on how absolutely daunting it is to do this - please read it, especially if you think "This is just another bloody petition". It is not. It could be our only path to real democracy within the EU and the people who have taken months to put it together and keep it going have got my deep admiration,

The Free Vaping Initiative

Classification of electronic cigarettes and related products through legislation as general purpose recreational products, and not as medicinal, tobacco or similar products, regardless of nicotine content.

Allow all vapers of Europe to keep on vaping, like vapers in member states where vaping is unregulated do, without inflicting any significant negative impact on the availability and diversity of vaping products. Allow all future vapers to experience the rich culture of vaping that we now enjoy in member states where vaping is not regulated. Allow affected manufacturers and vendors to stay in business, without being crippled or burdened with time and money consuming licensing procedures.

Here is the link to the LIVE INTERACTIVE MAP

More support is needed, not just from us vapers, but our family, friends and neighbours can support this Initiative. If you live out of the EU and are a citizen, give your "home" address in the EU.

Support this now. It is immaterial to whatever happens on the 28th February 2014. An EU Hearing on this, will be excellent in our vaping future and could spin off onto our own UK MHRA and NICE. Go for it Vapoteurs!
