|Look Ma, No Smoke!|People have been blowing smoke rings for centuries, but the man you see here is not exhaling smoke. He is exhaling vapor! The difference between smoke and vapor is like night and day. Vapor does not smell, linger or attach itself to clothes, hair and furniture like smoke.It's important to note also that not all vaping includes nicotine. The liquid being vaporized here for this video most likely contains no nicotine whatsoever.#itskuul2juul

|"JUUL is like Tesla"|Interviews with senior cigarette industry executives, including a Vice President of Marketing for the world's biggest cigarette company, Imperial Tobacco, reveal deep unease about Juul, a California startup. "JUUL is to our industry like what Tesla is to the car industry," said the executive. "Their product satisfies the need of smokers without killing them like cigarettes do. They are a game changer."Just as Tesla is practically synonymous with electric cars, JUUL is practically synonymous with off-the-shelf, consumer vaporizers. The nicotine delivery device does not produce the health risks presented by smoking, does not pose the fire danger of cigarettes and contains no tobacco. Tobacco industry leaders are concerned with good reason. #itskuul2juul ... See MoreSee Less

|Landlines and Smoking - a look at history & dinosaurs|Telecom executives like to say that landlines would never have been invented if the wireless cellphone had been invented first. In retrospect, the idea of digging ditches and connecting phones physically by wires sounds crazy in a wireless world.Similarly, mass produced cigarettes that cause deadly diseases when smoked would probably never have caught on if vaporizers had been invented first!Like dinosaurs and landlines, smoking is quickly becoming a relic. In fact, anecdotal evidence in King County suggests that youth smoking is already largely a thing of the past, replaced by vaping, much like cellphones have replaced landlines.#itskuul2juul ...

|Is Nicotine Harmful? Let's ask Google:-)|According to the featured reply at top of Google search results, nicotine consumed at normal levels does not lead to cancer, strokes or heart attacks in healthy adults. Those health problems are caused by smoking, not by nicotine. If you cut out the smoking, then you cut out 95-99% of the health risks and concerns.Some Google search results lead to articles and studies pointing out that nicotine is poisonous. Like caffeine, it's true that ingestion of pure nicotine can be fatal, which is why these naturally occurring compounds are consumed only in diluted form. As appealing as it may sound to some people, there is a good reason you can't walk into Starbucks and order a shot of pure caffeine... it would kill you by overstimulation!#itskuul2juul ...

|Jouling is Good Business: Part 1|HotBox Smoke Shop Bellevue is a good representation of a leading, modern-day smoke shop in Washington state. Entry to the store is restricted by age - minors are not allowed inside. Shelf space is allocated to cigars, big tobacco combustible cigarettes, chewing tobacco, non-THC hemp products, hookas and glassware for marijuana. The section that brings in the most customers? Juuling and vaping! In addition to restricting access to minors, smoke shops like this have the added benefit of staff with more product knowledge than other nicotine retailers.#itskuul2juul ...

|Jooling is not Smoking!|Any discussion about jooling and smoking should start with an understanding of the difference between the two. Smoking is when an organic material such as tobacco or marijuana is burned and the resulting smoke inhaled into the lungs. Basically, if it involves a lighter, matches or fire risk, then it's smoking. Jooling or vaping is fundamentally different from smoking. It may look like smoking, but there is no lighter, fire or burning plant material. Compared to smoking, jooling is about as safe as a Seattle coffee habit. If someone you love smokes and can't quit, then you want them to start jooling... today.Check the EAT Ballard website or Itskuul2juul on Facebook for continued investigative coverage on this breaking public health news story: eatballard.com/its-cool-to-juul/ #itskuul2juul ...
