    The NY times article I linked to was this week. The news is the Chinese look to be stopping sales in their own country not exports to rest of world.
    The cigarette company in China is state owned so they are looking after their interests

    I can’t see them stopping sales to overseas buyers, it’d damage their manufacturing industry too much. They just don’t want vaping to become more popular there. As already stated, they’re protecting their income from tobacco sales. It’s incredibly depressing just how easily governments can put money above the health and lives of their citizens :19:

    They just want the best of both worlds. But totally hypocritical.

    If China were to stop the production of ecigs it might just be the kick up the arse the country needs to realise that we can make stuff on a large scale too, like we used to...

    I have a @vapesmarter pipe. But I dare not take him outside in my car and out and about. I don't want anything to happen to him. If I drop something, and it gets damaged, I can replace a mod that is Mass made. I can not replace a one of a kind @vapesmarter original

    It would certainly be a lot more expensive if gear was made here, as opposed to China and the rest of Asia.
