    Hey, Im a newbie, just joined tonight. Canadian holdin' it down here in Bkk.

    Just got into vaping about a year ago. As time goes by I keep getting more serious about switching from the shitty cancer sticks to the juice.

    I'm wondering, what do you suppose vaping could be like in 10 years from now? Do you think we could throw nootropic's into the juices? Or vitamins? I don't know, or other healthy shit?

    It's a possibility, I know someone has tried putting Cialis in eliquid before. Pretty much the only requirements would be that the drug you are trying to incorporate is soluble in alcohol, can be absorbed through the lungs, and is potent enough for the delivery mechanism.

    The NHS has been putting THC in juice for years for those with MS and other medical conditions and charging £6.25 for the service.

    The bigger question is whether nootropics actually work? I had a Piracetam binge a couple of years ago and struggled to see what it was doing for me, though i know the stuff available over the counter here is fairly mild compared with what is available elsewhere. But to answer your question, sure, i'd say there are many people working on it.

    I would also say that vaping technology is on the edge of a tsunami. As things stand we have these crazy coils that don't work half the time, and archaic mods for the aficionados. My guess it that there is a new system around the corner that will blow the current stuff out of the water. Probably funded by tobacco companies, and taxable at a rate we've yet to hear about. The delay will be due to political wrangling over how to share the spoils.

    I think we can safely assume that the current crop of gear will look like dinosaurs very soon (mechanical mods already look like something Gallileo would have laughed at). Before long the gear we now consider state of the art will look like crazy antiques as a new system takes over. As i said on the other related thread there is a lot of legal wrangling going on behind the scenes to usher in the new - and highly lucrative- system. The key question will involve how much "the state" can get away with skimming off the top of forthcoming developments. Vaping is starting to make a sizeable dent in the astronomical tax revenues associated with tobacco smoking. Vapers love to talk about "big Tobacco" but the real money comes in the form of tax. After all, in airports etc we can still buy fags all over the world for around a dollar a pack. The mark up for vendors is minuscule, and the profit for Big Tobacco can't be that great either.
    No, the real loser is the tax man, whose profits leave Wall Street hustlers in awe. These guys have been cleaning up for decades, emptying a sizeable percentage of their constituents pockets 3-5 times a week under the guise of helping them get healthy. The money involved is staggering, and its loss devastating. Vaping presents a genuine crisis for governments all over the world.
    There's nothing altruistic about it either. The UK's NHS (National Health Service) is in no small part funded by smoker's tax revenue. I don't think i'm exaggerating when i say that vaping poses a real threat to the future of Britain's - and many other welfare states, and i suspect this is very much at the forefront of many think tanks looking at the future.

    From our point of view, it may well make sense to stock up on all we need to survive - including dinosaur mods - before The State makes its decisions. It won't be the same after.
