Avail Vapor bringing e-cigarettes to Carytown

Richmond BizSense has more on Donovan Phillips and Cole Smith’s new Avail Vapor shop setting up in the old Carytown Bicycle space:

Avail Vapor, an electronic cigarette startup, in June leased 3,300 square feet at 3224 W. Cary St. The business is the brainchild of Donovan Phillips and Cole Smith, both 28, who want to convert cigarette smokers to e-cigarette smokers – or “vapers,” as they’re known. [...]

Unlike traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes have a battery and a switch. Depending on the model, the switch is activated by a pushing a button or simply inhaling through the device. The switch connects to a coil that turns a nicotine-infused liquid into a vapor, which the user inhales.

    Tar in cigarette smoke causes cancer.
    But, Nicotine is an addictive drug.
    It is NOT the nicotine in cigarette smoke that causes cancer. Nicotine may keep you smoking, but it is the other bad chemicals in cigarettes that make smoking so dangerous.
