THC smokers causing trouble for vapors
Is anyone else worried or concerned over the fact that Marijuana smokers are not creating e-juice from THC ?? What they do is their business but how will people be able to tell the difference in the juice? I can just picture some cop pulling me over and making a big deal of my electronic cigarette and questioning what is in it? Could this lead to trouble for those of us who are legally smoking regular nicotine juice? To me vaping is such a wonderful change from cigarettes I hate to see the negative stuff creating lots of new laws that will harm my vaping experience. :?: :?: :?
I've thought about this a bit myself but I am fairly sure that just like the border cops use a spray to test paraphernalia for thc resin im sure they will come up with a paper strip to test the eliquid then let you go on your way if it's clean. But yes i could see how creative pot smokers (not that i have anything against people that smoke pot) could start a THC vaping craze that might cause trouble for us nic vapers.
The thing is, what can it be done about it really? Sure it's not a beneficial situation for vaping, to be associated with THC, but like you say admin this can be tested by the police if they want to.
I honestly don't see the big deal. If people had figured out how to vape crack or meth I'd be a little worried. Vaporizing has been on the chart for THC users from the beginning. And honestly for those of you worrying about people not letting others know it's in there it wouldn't exactly be catastrophic or dangerous in any way. I'm down for letting people smoke without smelling bad.

This exactly. People have been vaping THC for a long time. And the most popular devices for vaping it are easy enough to look up that police departments are more than likely educated on their appearances.

Also, vaping THC isn't generally odorless. It also doesn't smell like fruit, tobacco, or menthol. It smells like what it is and is easily identifiable for the most part. I have friends who get cartridges from Colorado of extracts, and it was pretty obvious upon smelling that it wasn't nicotine in there.

I've never seen a cop bat an eye at an e-cig vaper, and I don't live in an area where THC is legal by any means whatsoever. I think the only issue it may cause is if the cop was suspicious of the contents and didn't have the proper equipment to test on the spot.
I think what I would be concerned about is if people vaping pot start finding devices that look like ours to try to vape while driving, hoping that cops won't bat an eye at them. It would suck if this resulted in overall suspicion against anyone vaping ejuice in their car.

But yea, I have only ever had one off duty cop at a gas station look at me funny when I pulled around him while my 18 year old son and I were taking a big puff at the same time lol.
Well hopefully they do come up with a test so that people that are not smoking anything with THC won't get in trouble. As many of you know from experience, just getting pulled over by a cop because they think you are doing something illegal is annoying, specially if you are on your way to work!
I've already had a cop think my e-cig was drugs! Same with my dad. Lol. It's messed up man. Next thing you know they'll be stopping everyone smoking a cigarette to see if it's weed.
It's things like this that make me hesitant to vape in public. Like when I'm in a car, I try to hide my pen or look around for cops before I hit it, even though I know I don't need to because I'm not vaping THC or doing anything wrong. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but some part of me feels like it just needs to be hidden.
If you aren't doing anything wrong then you have nothing to worry about. There are many uses for coil based vapes and one of them is smoking pot. I don't see anything wrong with smoking pot and think it should be legal everywhere but that is just my humble opinion.
