History of the E-Cigarette

A GRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE E-CIGARETTE

You might think e-cigs are a product of the 21st century, but these smoking alternatives have been around for almost a century. In 1927, New Yorker Joseph Robinson patented the first electric vaporizer. Robinson intended his invention for the vaporization of medicinal compounds, and 100 years later, his designs are still used by modern e-cigs. Come 1963, a man named Herbert A. Gilbert first came up with the concept of a smokeless cigarette. He didn’t make any traction in his time, but 30 years later, his ideas would come to fruition.

In the 1990’s, a variety of patents were filed for electronic cigarettes designs and cigarette substitutes. By 2004, the first commercial e-cig was made available in China. Two years later, e-cigs would make their way to Europe, and by 2007, American consumers could purchase them in a vast array of stores.

E-cigs have made some great progress in terms of legal issues. In 2009 Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a ban on the sale of e-cigs in California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit prevented the FDA from banning e-cigs as an unapproved drug delivery device. These wins for the e-cig and vaping industries provided the framework that would characterize later legal battles.

Celebrities have jumped on the e-cig bandwagon, endorsing their favorite products and using the devices on television and in movies. E-cig popularity continues to rise, no doubt helped along in part by recent research from Public Health England that shows e-cigs are 95% safer than tobacco products. As more consumers turn to e-cigs and vaping from traditional cigarettes, the future of these industries gets brighter by the day.

Monetize Medical Marijuana in Canada

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017
The growing legalization of marijuana not only provides recreational and medical opportunities but business ones as well. Not only can you set up a shop in legalized states, you can also plant businesses in other legalized countries. Since marijuana is becoming legal in more states and countries now, it may be worth investing in the growing medical marijuana industry or edibles industry.
