selling vapes to non-smokers
is the UK starting to turn on vaping like the USA? Vaping shops selling to non-smokers, not under 18's mind you just non-smokers, i didnt know there was a law that you couldnt sell vape products to non-smokers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39523857

There is no such law, only a voluntary code of conduct. If selling vape kit to a non-smoker stops them becoming a smoker, well and good.

The rare person who doesn't and wouldn't smoke but vapes is allowable in my opinion, given the benefits to many.

RE: selling vapes to non-smokers
Because RCPH would rather kids start smoking than have access to a safer nicotine delivery so they have a new generation of smokers they can trap in the NRT money making cycle.

RE: selling vapes to non-smokers
Excuse me sir but before you buy those condoms can I check - do you have a penis? Yes? OK then - are you a virgin? Yes? Sorry sir, I can only sell condoms to gentlemen with a penis who have already been sexually active. If I sell them to you now I might be encouraging you to commit unspeakable sins of depravity that could spread disease and cause unwanted pregnancies... What's that? Condoms are meant to help prevent diseases and unwanted pregnancies? No sir, I think you'll find that's not quite as effective as abstinence from all sexual activity, except for masturbation but that's a whole barrel of sin in it's own right which will probably involve porn that we'll know you've been accessing because we can get our mates down at the DWP or the Agriculture Ministry to check your browser history. Best just forget about it really now run along...

the comment was meant as sarcasm but I agree if an adult is thinking of smoking then better to start vaping instead.

I don't believe vape shops should be selling vapes to kids however if a parent is buying vapes to get their kits off cigs that's ok, having said that kids seem to have no problems getting cigs so I am sure they would find a way to get e-cigs regardless of the law hopefully they wont move on to smoking though.

RE: selling vapes to non-smokers
Wish i had a choice between vaping and cigs 25 years ago. If someone is considering enjoying nicotine and takes the PROVEN healthier alternative then all credit to them for there informed thinking.

If they are starting it to be "Cool" and part of the subculture then they are Knobjockeys imo

RE: selling vapes to non-smokers
What they should be worrying about is all these supermarkets selling low fat cheese without checking if people already eat ordinary cheese. Its a gate way to cholesterol I tell you;

more importantly why should they worry about vape shops selling vapes to non-smokers when they seem to care less about shops selling cigarettes to non-smokers.

Absolutely but the British Vape Trade Association agreed to this patently daft requirement.

never seen any "cant sell to you if your not a vaper/smoker" warnings on vape selling web sites, at the end of the day if someone wants to start vaping and they are 18yrs or over some guy in a vape shop isn't going to stop them, at least in a vape shop the person is more likely to get good advise.
