Most experts are saying, in no uncertain terms, thatthe vape industry cannot be stopped. As the Canadian Chair of the Advisory Board at the Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics at the University of Ottawa, David Sweanor, so eloquently states, “The current resistance towards vaping will not stop its expansion. Innovation is gathering momentum. A technological and public health revolution is afoot”.
Renowned public health advocate Clive Bates also voiced his agreement stating:
“My main prediction is that regulators will be taught lessons about the limits of their power by consumers, markets, internet commerce, and overseas entrepreneurs. The reason is that as with any prohibition or regulatory restrictions, the more market opportunities that are going to be created and the more inventive people are going to become”.
There is no doubt in the minds of the believers thatthe opposition and skepticism born of 2018 will continue. As expressed by Oliver Kershaw, founder of E-cigarette Forum, “2018 was the year vape panic went mainstream, allowing vaping opponents to largely misrepresent the technology in the media”. He also goes on to say that regulatory restrictions against the industry are no exception. But this just provides the opportunity for the vape community to raise its voice.
The future is unpredictable, but with the solicited advice of persons versed in the fields of Public Health, Science, and Industry, you have support to navigate the complicated and ever-changing world of stocks. Keep your ears and eyes peeled for all updates as things can change for or against the industry’s growth in a moment’s notice. There are great things ahead in 2019 for the vape market.
