It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a product take off like electronic cigarettes have. So quickly in fact, the FDA has taken notice and is in the midst of defining what an “alternative nicotine product” actually is. E-cigs do not contain tobacco, so do they deserve the same regulatory scrutiny traditional cigarettes are faced with? Many experts say “no.”
The hot debate stems from one fundamental concept: not grouping the two very different products in the same legal category (i.e., tobacco products). Although many states have already placed age restrictions on the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, the concept is still very new and has yet to be resolved in over 40 states.
Impending age restrictions aside, popularity indicates electronic cigarettes are the future nicotine delivery system. The people have spoken, and the sales over the past several years tell the story:
The downward spiral of the tobacco industry is no coincidence given the exponential growth of electronic cigarettes, which will continue to play a major player in the harm reduction movement. The slippery slope of declining profits tobacco companies now find themselves on may be attributed to the growing awareness of the dangers of long-term tobacco use. Several major tobacco companies have expanded their product lines into electronic cigarettes in an attempt to secure their spot in the booming marketplace.
Without a doubt, we’re witnessing a worldwide shift in the way people think and where they place their hard-earned money. Investors and entrepreneurs around the globe have realized the unique opportunity at hand, and we’re beginning to see stores that specialize in vaping sprout up around the world. Even gas stations are getting in on the action since e-cigarettes have become a household name.
Leading online retailer, 7’s, has recently opened up a location of their own in Southlake, Texas. Beginning as primarily an online one-stop-shop for electronic cigarettes, the growth fueled by unprecedented demand has inspired 7’s to take their business local. This gives customers the opportunity to view some of the unique products offered by 7’s, and to see the value and top-notch customer service, firsthand. Below is a shot of what you can expect upon entering the new 7’s location:
