Cigarettes are bad for you – we get it, we’re accepting it, and we’re moving on, as is most of the country. Enter e-cigarettes. But nothing can be perfect, right? And now, we’re hearing questions about the safety of e-juice. What kind of chemicals are in there, anyway? What kind of vapor are we sucking into our lungs, and how do we know it’s not just a different KIND of harmful than cigarettes?
High Times posted a great explanation of what goes into e-juice and what current research suggests. Basically, e-juices contain one of three bases – propylene glycol (PG), polyethlene glycol (PEG) or ethylene glycol (EG). Pay attention to these when selecting your e-juice.

- Only becomes toxic in large doses – too large to achieve by vaping
- Used in pharmaceutical products,

Yesterday, Alaska became the third state to legalize recreational marijuana use…because what else is there to do?
This November, Alaska voters passed a legalization ballot measure. And now it’s official! Regulated sales are expected to begin in 2016 and generate millions of dollars in tax revenue. As we learned from Colorado and Washington, it will take time for state legislators to figure out exactly how they intend to regulate the industry.
What does Ballot Measure 2 look like?
- Recreational marijuana use is legal for adults 21 and over
- Marijuana may not be consumed in public places
- Possession of up to an ounce is permitted in public
- Adults may grow up to six plants in their homes, but only three of them flowering at once
- Adults may gift up to an ounce to another adult (yes, this is real)
- The state liquor
