Think Hard before Purchasing ENDS


Way overpriced mods. Small juice selection with no flavor profiles listed anywhere and a handful of old gross looking testers was the opinion of somebody who reviewed the TKO vapor kiosk at the mall in Roswell NM. There followed two favorable reviews that had a professional air(pun intended) which may have been written by the kiosk attendant you see in picture with his feet propped up on customer counter whiling away his time on an IPhone.

The only review that counts with regard to nicotine inhalers is that of the FDA.  There are many names for electronic vapor cigarettes or e-cigs such as e-pens, e-pipes, e-hookah, and e-cigars. The group name for these potentially lethal products is ENDS  which stands for electronic nicotine delivery systems. According to the FDA, e-cigarettes are devices that allow users to inhale an aerosol containing nicotine or other potentially toxic substances.

Contrasted with old fashioned cigarettes, e-cigarettes are typically battery-operated and use a heating element to heat e-liquid from a refillable cartridge, liberating a chemical-filled aerosol that gives many an exhilarating buzz they are willing to compromise their health for!!

I wonder if Ooy’s House Thai and Chinese food directly across from this Vape Booth gets extra customers due to added addict traffic .

  1. It’s very common to see the attendants of vape kiosks seated behind counter with their feet supported on something in the air, with their heads down texting on their smart phones. That guy in the picture probably let 50 customers walk by the kiosk without ever looking up. He knows nicotine addicts are not as picky about customer service and they will buy the addictive vapor product even if he has yellow teeth, bad breath, body odor, bad manners and social awkwardness

    1. Nicotine advocate Ann Althouse tries very hard to advance the view that the addictive substance has its benefits. Ask the gentleman posting as Tyrone Slothrop about the relationship between vaping and colon cancer

  2. I think e cigs are called gaspers in London and the UK in general. Martha de Lacey and her e-cigarette in a photograph by Jeff Gilbert paint a tale of miserable addiction and the inevitable jump to tobacco based products.
