Death Knells for Squonking ??
« on: July 06, 2018, 10:25:45 AM »
I was in the vape shop today and the manageress received a message from the owner saying that some new regulations ban squonk bottles over 2ml and any tanks that have non-essential parts that if removed can increase the capacity to over 2ml.
She was to busy to go into detail so I don't know if this is speculation or imminent.

For a country/jurisdiction that has supposedly embraced vaping, the bureaucrats there sure seem to be fighting it to the last jot and tittle.

We don't follow the 'rules' over here!!. Shops still sell hardware above 2ml. We do follow the rules on juice but the short fill/nic shots solution fixes that. There's always ways around stupid rules.

Unfortunately, the UK is still in the EU and has to follow their asinine regulations. It is because of such stupid/overbearing laws that the UK citizens voted to exit the EU. From what I have heard, other countries are considering doing so as well.

Not sure what other countries your talking about, haven't heard any myself. Some of the laws in the EU are ridiculous but I bet many Americans would take the EU regs over some of the current/pending state laws in the US!!!!

i remember reading awhile back about other countries may follow us out of the EU,  cant remember which though,  probably waiting to see what happens to Britain,   looks like its a shambles at the moment,  dont really understand politics much.

I consider us extremely lucky at the moment compared to whats happening in the US,    although who knows what will happen in the future and if our luck changes   w:)w

Relative corruption aside, I suspect that ALL governments tend to attract corrupt and corruptible people. Such people are drawn to power as honey attracts flies - or maybe more like warm blood attracts mosquitoes.

Yep. In Mexico they even have a belief/saying - "A poor politician is a poor politician."
