Has any nicotine industry ever died out in the history of the human race?

Really? The industry is just hitting it's growth spurt.
During 2011-2015, e-cigarette use rose from 1.5 percent to 16.0 percent among high school students

Worth noting that the majority aren't using nicotine, either, just flavorings. That's where the money's at.

so your entire point is that you will sell legal drugs to addicts ?
you are literally spreading cancer and making money of it

if you seek approvel, you will get none of me
if you seek happiness, hurting others will not make you happy
if you seek glory there is none but dishonor here
if you seek money, you will have your blood money at a heavy price

In my city, give or take 45k people.
People have gone from every third or fourth teen-late 20's vaping to now like 1 out of every 30 maybe something even more absurb as to even say like 50?

We've had three vape shops or so quit and one was on our popular/main shop street. Close to wal-mart and gas stations. You know, where those vapers hang out.

I believe it to be dying out bad enough where the only people who are going to be doing it are the people licensing their own flavor to local shops

Isolated nicotine really is not, and poses far fewer health risks than cigarettes. Quick googling around would confirm this, However, there still are health risks and addiction potential, its just relatively much less than cigarettes.

GJ talking about my silence when I closed the thread and went back to check on it on a whim.

Maybe try reading next time? I don't know how I could ever make a point to someone with as little comprehension as you.

you used vague phrases and made, yourself, no references to source material
I'm not going to waste my time by looking for "any measurable statistic of addiction" because you don't even trust the quote I grabbed from a medical textbook
does this entire board consist of underage frogposters? cuz every thread has stupid faggots like this guy. unless it's just him in every thread

BinaryMan

@WebTool
Even if some of what I said was vague your random medical textbook quote was even more vague. The crux of what I said was that "nicotine alone is less addicting and less harmful than cigarettes". That went over your head for whatever reason and you gave a medical quote about cigarettes being bad.
I didn't give any sources because its just some random internet argument, not something I'm investing a whole lot into...

Also calling people who you think are wrong underage and frogposters just makes you look silly and immature.

People saying it's saturated or too late, you realise the growth of ecig users is so fast that in a decade there will be more juice vendors than tobacco? This is the beginning.

Still I wouldn't invest, it's a perfect monopoly your profits are going to converge to zero at the same time.

Obviously someone else has done a decent job of responding to you, but since you were originally referring to my post, I might as well respond.

This was a study done on why they've had such a hard time reinforcing nicotine addiction in a lab study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2687081/

Ultimately what it finds is that while nicotine is addictive, it needs outside help to achieve the levels of addiction we see in tobacco users. There are a great deal of chemicals found in tobacco products that aid in the addiction. This is also why there aren't large numbers of people getting addicted to nicotine patches or gum.

I also think this article from Scientific American is a good summary of the debate on whether or not nicotine is itself harmful, or a useful stimulant like caffeine: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/is-nicotine-all-bad/

This.

I think there is still money to be made, but make sure you open one up in an area where there isn't one or aren't many already.

Just walk into a few dif ecig shops and ask if you can work there. Then once you get a job there, work a few weeks to learn how to do it.

Then open your own.

The fda deeming regulations that just came out and will make the entire industry collapse in 2 years maybe?

Holy shit bro , do your homework

Ill take all the money you would have wasted as a thank you

I doubt they'll collapse the entire industry, but it will make it impossible for the little guy to compete, so you're right on that front.

anyone know a good provider for that vape/ecig stuff? i don't want to make it my main thing but i could add that product at our store. would be nice to do a decent margin of profit on a product of quality. i never tried to buy stuff over at alibaba/aliexpress, i presume they got good prices but i wouldn't want to play with the health of my clients by selling them some botched toxic product.

Nicotine may not be carcinogenic, but it's unknown about most flavorings used. Menthol is recognized as being generally safe to inhale. Anything with a dairy/creamy flavor is known to be carcinogenic. Everything else is up in the air.

@TechHater
You'd probably want to make your own in-house liquids. It's insanely cheap and easy to do so actually. Which is why more and more vapers are doing it themselves. Keep in mind that handling pure nicotine extract is dangerous, if you let it get on bare flesh, or somehow ingest it in larger than normal quantities. It can potentially kill you. So basically wear gloves, and don't even think of offering some super potent liquid (3.5% by volume is about the max) unless you want to end up involved in a string of wrongful death lawsuits. Don't use anything but food grade glycerine and propene glycol either.

@Crazy_Nice

Menthol is shown to be the most unhealthy actually. Anything with a dairy or creamy flavor is not carcinogenic, it is only if Diacetyl was added to give it the creamy consistency.

I'm unfortunate enough to work in a Vape shop and that is our understanding.
