Phillip Morris to hike e-cigarette price by 4.7% – The Korea Herald

The South Korean unit of Philip Morris International Inc. said Friday it will jack up the price of its heat-and-burn electronic cigarette by nearly 4.7 percent next week.

The per-pack price of HEETS, the tobacco units used with its electronic tobacco heating device IQOS, will go up to 4,500 won ($4.13) starting Wednesday, a 4.65 percent increase from the current 4,300 won.

The envisioned price raise is to reflect a recent jump in the individual consumption tax imposed on heat-and-burn products and an expected increase in other levies, the company said.

Philip Morris Korea said it will expand its plant in Yangsan, just north of the southeastern port of Busan, to manufacture HEETS here, which will become its first production facility for the tobacco unit in Asia.

To that end, the company said it will invest $420 million until 2019 and hire an additional 700 workers.

Currently, the Yangsan plant manufactures Marlboro and other conventional tobacco brands for domestic sales and exports. (Yonhap)

More teens vaping as cigarette smoking declines – CBS News

While fewer American teens are lighting up cigarettes, more of them are vaping instead, a new report shows.

At the same time, marijuana use has held steady as it remains more popular than cigarettes and, in a piece of good news, misuse of opioid painkillers like OxyContin has actually dropped among adolescents.

In 2017, more than 1 in 4 high school seniors said they’ve vaped during the past year — and most apparently don’t know they’re toying with a potentially addictive product.

Nearly 28 percent of 12th graders reported trying an e-cigarette or other vaping device in 2016, according to results from the 2017 Monitoring the Future survey, sponsored by the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

But when asked what they’d inhaled while vaping, about 52 percent of high school seniors responded “just flavoring.” Only 33 percent said they’d inhaled vapor that contains nicotine.

“They don’t even realize that what they’re using is a tobacco product,” said Erika Sward, assistant vice president of the American Lung Association.

E-cigarettes contain fewer harmful chemicals than traditional tobacco products, and might prove useful in helping adults quit smoking, said NIDA Deputy Director Dr. Wilson Compton.

But “that’s a very different story when you’re talking about youths who may not have used any other tobacco product,” Compton pointed out. “Instead of this being a tradeoff, this could be an entree into what we know can be a lifelong, extraordinarily harmful habit. Kids that start with vaping do transition to smoked tobacco more often than those who’ve never used e-cigarettes.”

Sward said the survey results “really underscore why aggressive action from the [U.S.] Food and Drug Administration is required” regarding regulation of e-cigarettes.

But the FDA announced in July that it would delay its review of vaping products that are already on the market for

New e-cigarette popular among kids, easy to conceal from parents – WGNO

× New e-cigarette popular among kids, easy to conceal from parents

AVONWORTH, Pa. (KDKA-TV) — It’s called a JUUL, a new way of smoking that’s becoming a problem at schools across the country.

Take the Avonworth School District where smoking has never been a big issue before.

“This year we’ve had quite a bit of a change,” says Dr. Tom Ralston, Avonworth’s superintendent.

Ralston says administrators, teachers, and students themselves are seeing an upsurge in this particular kind of e-cigarette that can easily fool parents and others by its sleek and unusual shape.

The typical e-cigarette is quite different in size and is easy to find all around town.

But the JUUL is very different.

It’s almost like a thumb drive, part of your computer and it’s very concealable.

“This very much looks like a USB drive or a charger for a USB and so for us it was an education and for our teachers it was an education,” Ralston told KDKA money editor Jon Delano on Tuesday.

“And quite honestly, I think they’re a lot of our parents that aren’t aware that their children may have these as well.”

Locally, the JUUL can be purchased at many GetGo’s, Sheetz, and some vape shops, but purchasers must be 18 years or older at least if bought in person and not on-line.

At Glassworx on the South Side, Dominick Greco says the JUUL is very popular, especially among the young.

“For the most part, it’s backordered, so yeah it’s very difficult to keep on the shelves,” notes Greco.

But from a public health standpoint, the JUUL can pose more risks for users because of a higher concentration of nicotine.

“It’s definitely going to be three to five times more as far as other

How to Clean an E-Cigarette E-Liquid Tank in Six Easy Steps – TG Daily (blog)

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CLEAN YOUR VAPE TANK?

Cleaning your tank is important, simply because similar to any technology or frequently used items, over time it will become dirty and will not be working to its full capacity due to overuse. There are a couple ways to tell if your tank needs to be cleaned.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY TANK NEEDS TO BE CLEANED?

One way you can tell your tank needs to be cleaned is if the liquid is starting to turn a brown colour, rather than the original colour that your liquid is, this means you need to change your coil. Cleaning your tank at this time is optimum to clear out any old burnt liquid taste.

The ecigarette has e-liquid residue on it, and the tank or the mod are wet.

The vapour has a burnt flavour, or there is black gunk inside of it.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY TANK?

Your tank should be cleaned on a regular business to keep it working at its highest efficiency, and the coil should be changed on a regular basis, usually between 2-4 weeks; this will vary from person to person.

DOES MY TANK NEED TO BE REPLACED OR CLEANED?

Most tanks need cleaning and the coils need to be changed, while some tanks are disposable and need to be replaced. If your electronic cigarette is tasting burnt, there is a high possibility that your coil needs to be changed, and your tank needs to be cleaned. Some electronic cigarettes in Canada (usually pen style vaporizers) have replaceable tanks, and have no replaceable coils. This is a more expensive alternative to simply replacing the coil in your tank, which varies in price, and can be purchased at any vape shop
