The US Is Being Flooded by Chinese Vapes

A smoke shop in Tennessee introduced a new disposable nicotine vape with an LCD display and Bluetooth connectivity named RAMA. This vape, resembling an early 2000s cell phone, allows customization, puff tracking, and location monitoring. The sophisticated disposable vape trend, including smart vapes, has grown in the US, originating from China and surpassing legal boundaries. The US-China vape market accounts for a large share due to innovative and potent products. As competition escalated, Chinese manufacturers focused on design, affordability, and increased nicotine levels. Concerns arise over the environmental impact and appeal of these vapes to youth, sparking regulatory worries.
