I came from 20 years of a much bigger international industry before vape. Problem needs to be fixed starting from the top, which is the manufacturers of juice and hardware. They’re the one to control the prices and whom the product can be distributed to. I work with alot of the owners of juice makers and hardware makers, unfortunately they’re only looking at how much they can push out and their own profitability, not the stability and longevity of the industry. Products should be distributed through channels and not direct to retailers and online only companies. Problem is created at the etailer level, so that’s must be fixed. I don’t support more regs, but i do support the safety side from day 1 when no one supported it. I also do support that etail should be banned only because analog tobacco is banned online, this will definitely help control the pricing as well as non lab produced juice.
These are my opinions in my experience of vape industry for 5 years and 20 years in manufacturing, distribution, branding. I wonder what other shop owners feel.
