California vaping: The new subculture
There are hundreds of vape shops in California – more than a thousand some say – and they come in all shapes and sizes. There are chic ones, which look a bit like bars. There are loungey ones where there are sofas for customers to sip a coffee as they vape. And there are arty ones with rap music, grey concrete floors and pictures for sale on exposed brick walls.
Inside the shops there are vaping magazines, some showing lingerie-clad women puffing away at their e-cigarettes. And there’s already a whole industry in accessories: clothing, bags and wooden cases for the juice or e-juice – that’s the liquid that you vaporise.
In some parts of California, restrictions on vaping indoors and in public spaces are coming in. The state, it seems, is leading the way not only in vaping but also in the control of vaping.
In all, VAPING is the future.
