purplebox vapours Comments in The Sunday Times on TA Decision To Ban Vaping

This weekend Sunday Times journalist Siobhan Maguire wrote a very interesting and informative piece on the reaction of the vaping community to the decision by Irish Transport Authorities, Irish Rail and Bus Eireann, to ban vaping in stations and on public transport. In the article Siobhan explores the myths and fears behind vaping that may have led to complaints by travellers and the blanket decision by transport bosses. Is ignorance simply overruling the most recent findings that the vapour is harmless and inhaling e-liquid, whether it contains nicotine or not, is an adult decision that should be left to the individual?

In the piece, Steve Barrett, MD of purplebox vapours, hopes that the decision will be a starting point for discussion between vaping associations and transport authorities, which will lead to specified vaping areas or carriages and that sense will prevail in the long run.

Let us know your thoughts...
