    Hi all, I've been vaping for a good few years & due to the love of "vaping", I now own/run a vape shop in the UK. It's small but well stocked. I've not joined this forum to advertise the shop.
    Just wanted to say hi

    Hey @Daren M welcome to VF!
    How's it all going with the TPD over there?

    Hi Zephyr, we hear different changes to the TPD on a daily/weekly basis. At the moment they're trying to ban tanks over 2ml and fluid bottles no more than 20ml. The vaping community is putting up a great fight over this. The HUGE tobacco companies are the ones behind all of this as you'll know yourself. It's back on court soon so hopefully we'll hear some good news

    I bet the pharmaceutical companies aren't too happy with people vaping rather than using their products either?

    Yeah fingers crossed for you man it all sounds pretty stressful, especially for the shops and manufacturers.
    Have you got a date yet to get the final legislation?

    Yeah that is a big thing. It's been shown time and time again that traditional NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) products just don't seem to have the success rate that vaping has. It seems crazy to legislate so harshly against something that's saving lives until you remember that yeah, everything gets corrupt once large companies get involved and money changes hands :/
