18th November, 2019, Monday, Washington Post – “Everything seemed ready to go: President Trump’s ban on most flavored e-cigarettes had been cleared by federal regulators. Officials were poised to announce they would order candy, fruit and mint flavors off the market within 30 days — a step the president had promised almost two months earlier to quell a youth vaping epidemic that had ensnared 5 million teenagers.
One last thing was needed: Trump’s sign-off.
But on Nov. 4, the night before a planned morning news conference, the president balked. Briefed on a flight to a Lexington, Ky., campaign rally, he refused to sign the one-page “decision memo,” saying he didn’t want to move forward with a ban he had once backed at his wife’s and daughter’s urging, because he feared it would lead to job losses, said a Trump adviser who spoke on the condition of anonymity to reveal internal deliberations.”
Although we’ve discontinued operations of our stores, Vapebrothers has always trusted that e-cigarettes help save lives, introduce massive value to society – and that our work in helping our beloved customers to quit smoking has been one that’s incredibly worthy despite its difficulties.
The rally of thousands before the White House in Washington, United States on 7th of November, 2019 which contributed to Trump’s retrieval of his prohibition has a very powerful slogan: #WeVapeWeVote. It’s one of the first formal rallies where vapers are standing their ground and delivering their firm stance on e-cigarettes – and where the message has finally struck a chord in the awareness of a nation’s leader.
Trump’s retrieval of his prohibition is just the beginning.
We foresee that there will be a snowball of overturns that will come from leaders being aware of the misjudgments they’ve made on e-cigarettes in the future.
At Vapebrothers, we genuinely wish that the wise leaders within our nation wouldn’t prolong their misjudgment, and sacrifice their positive legacies and the happiness of our nation in favor of temporal preconceived notions on e-cigarettes.
Because in the end, our wish is one and the same: Happiness.
