Youth Vaping Epidemic And The Proposed Flavor Ban
Dear Black Note Community,
We agree with the need for a category-wide action on e-juice flavors that Sound Just Like Kids’ Favorite Treats ONLY. Such flavors have fueled the youth e-cigarette epidemic. When it comes to tobacco products, particularly e-cigarettes, certain flavors attract kids and puts them at risk of a lifetime of nicotine dependence.
We aren’t against companies offering straight forward flavors designed for adults as long as they adhere to strict guidelines to ensure that their marketing and commercial communications are directed toward adult smokers and not kids.
Since day one, Black Note has discouraged young children and teenagers from Vaping its products by steering clear from kid-friendly designs, names, marketing materials and characterizing flavors that stir up childhood nostalgia and appeal to the underage/young crowd, holding to Tobacco and Menthol flavors ONLY.
We welcome industry changes that align with our existing standards, as our mission all along has been to create a smoke-free world by providing the most authentic and enjoyable alternative to cigarettes. That means we’ve always avoided certain practices while consistently embracing others.
The vaping crowd is a huge one, but not all people who vape do so for the same reasons. Black Note was created to serve former adult smokers looking for an alternative to smoking, not people who have never smoked who decide they want to start vaping.
Our products are crafted, especially for legal-age adult smokers, and no one else. Also, to satiate their cravings with real tobacco and menthol alternatives to traditional cigarettes.
That being said, we think the FDA and state lawmakers have been spying on us and are seeking to align the vaping industry with the same high standards Black Note has upheld since its inception.
That’s because regulatory changes currently being discussed in the industry just so happen to match the same standards Black Note has been upholding since our inception. These standards include lots of little things that fit into Black Note’s bigger picture of only appealing to adult former smokers and no one else. Black Note has no fear of new regulations, as it has long been adhering to the very same rules that are under discussion by the FDA
Although we are the best tobacco vaping liquid company on earth, we don’t want non-smokers to start vaping. We don’t encourage vapers to vape more, nor do we discourage vapers from quitting. We don’t want you to vape forever. We encourage all adult smokers to quit smoking cold turkey if that works better for them, without even putting Black Note into the mix.
Black Note is the second-best alternative to smoking. Quitting altogether is the first.
