Immediately upon entering the venue, I noticed the undeniable air of class and professionalism that I had yet to witness in our industry. This was a business to business event with over 800 buyer groups from all over the world. High-level conversations were being had with some key players in the cigar aficionado space and the amount of business being written was impressive.

On July 22, 2016, a letter from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) was released containing revisions to The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2015 (CNPPA). In a previous letter, CPSC stated, "Beginning on July 26, 2016, the sale of liquid nicotine in non-compliant containers is prohibited." The revised guidelines states that this requirement applies to products packaged after the effective date of July 26, 2016, as well as all existing inventory.

There's a firestorm raging in the vaping industry. The FDA's strict and unreasonably expensive regulation requirements are forcing vaping product manufacturers and retailers alike to make a brutal decision. Spend the time, money, and effort to comply with the regulations by August of 2018, hope for an act of Congress to change the predicate date, or eventually prepare to stop conducting business. For many companies, it's not much of a decision. If you don't have the money to get through this process, and there is no change in the predicate date, your business will probably cease to exist legally. We see that as a tragedy on many levels.

It's Summer! Time for BBQ's, cooling off by the pool, and getting together with friends and family to share stories, food, and laughs -- so we've compiled some great summer drink recipes to complement your favorite Taken Three flavors. Kibitzer is a unique and complex flavor consisting of grilled pineapple upside-down cake. Tasting every bit like a traditional pineapple upside-down cake, this blend uses a grilled pineapple note to bring out the sweetness instead of it being tart or sour. You'll taste a pineapple that appears to have been grilled over a wood-burning flame and balances well with a moist yellow cake and caramel-like pineapple reduction. Complement your Kibitzer vaping experience with this grilled pineapple smoothie, but first, let's learn how to grill a pineapple.

Times are changing fast for the vaping industry and, as a result, transparency and brutal honesty are required now more than ever. The people here at Five Pawns think it’s time we grew up as an industry and focused less on the circus of rebellion and more on all of the good we can do collectively if the world had a better sense of what vaping means to ex-smokers. We believe we have to elevate our discourse and behavior to be taken more seriously. The more seriously we are taken, the more people will understand the logic of our position. The more people hear and understand our position, commitment, and passion, the more good we can do together.

Captain of High End Mods Japan, reviewer and Admin of several influential Industry Groups, Kats Ikeda braved through Tokyo rush hour subway mayhem to find me in Shinjuku. This is not a small feat, and if you've ever googled, "Tokyo Subway at Rush Hour" you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. The NYC subway doesn't even compare to the "pack 'em in" mentality in Tokyo. I was honored to be sought out by such an influential figure within our industry. We had been social media pals for quite some time, so it was great to finally meet him in the flesh. Bartosz, of the infamous Gepetto Mods introduced us after suggesting I make the phone call to Kats while in Kyoto. He met me without hesitation in the busiest railway station in the world of all places.
