Call to Action - NS Bill 60

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 10/27/2014 to Industry

-= CALL TO ACTION =-

-= YOUR HELP IS NEEDED =-

THIS WILL AFFECT EVERYONE

(INCLUDING YOU)

Nova Scotia Bill 60 Amendments

This is a call to action that WILL affect our future in Electronic Cigarettes, Vaping in general and your access to these products.

The Nova Scotia Health Minister, Leo Glavine has introduced an Amendments to Tobacco Legislation in Bill 60. Details can be found here: http://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20141024003

Effectively, these amendments would treat Electronic Cigarettes as Tobacco in virtually all aspects. No more vaping in public, no more visible products, no more flavours and no more vaping in vape shops.

As we receive NEW products they are going on sale IMMEDIATELY, but only for a limited amount of time. When we get them, we want to get them to YOU as quickly as possible so we set aside a "limited" number of each item for the LOWEST price Lightning Sale. However, Lightning Sales don't last long and as we all know, lightning never strikes twice in the same place and these prices will NEVER be lower!
