E-CIGARETTES ARE REGULATED
As of August 8th 2016, all new nicotine products introduced into the market after February 15th, 2007 must go through a premarket review conducted by the FDA.
E-CIGARETTES ARE SAFER THAN SMOKING
The Royal College of Physicians concluded from a conducted study that vaping is 95% safer than smoking. People who vape are exposed to significantly lower levels of intoxicants and carcinogens compared to those who smoke.
FLAVORED VAPES ARE NOT DESIGNED TO ATTRACT KIDS
Flavored vape products were designed by and for adults. Surveys of adult vapers show a strong preference for fruity, dessert, and sweet/candy flavors. Flavors aid in the transition from smoking to vaping.
VAPING DID NOT CAUSE EVALI DEATHS
The CDC identified the cause of lung injuries due to the exposure of THC vapor products that contained Vitamin E Acetate, NOT nicotine containing products.
VAPING DOES NOT CAUSE POPCORN LUNG
There are no confirmed cases of popcorn lung in people who use e-cigarettes and there is no evidence that e-cigarettes could cause popcorn lung. Diacetyl is a key factor of popcorn lung, an ingredient e-liquid manufacturers do not use.
SECOND-HAND VAPING IS NOT DANGEROUS
A variety of air quality tests were performed by researchers, including inside adult vapor stores - all the reports found that concentration of vaping-related chemicals in the air were below occupational exposure limits or were not detectable at all.
Proper Disposal of Vaporizers & E-Cigs
Weat BLANKZ! Pods take the environment and our product impact very seriously. Here is some helpful information in regard to proper disposal of all E-Cigarette products.
E-Cigarette and E-Liquid Waste should not be thrown in the garbage, or E-Liquid dumped into the sink/toilet. The main factor in proper disposal of e-cig equipment/products is if the item has a removable battery or not. For disposable vape pens, the batteries are enclosed so there is no need to attempt to remove them. For any pre-filed cartridges or pods that still contain any e-liquid, they should not be rinsed out as that could turn the water into potential hazardous waste.
Any vape pens, e-cigarettes, batteries, and cartridges should be taken to your Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility. For nationwide disposal, you can reference your closest HHW at Recycling Center Search - Earth911.com
