For some, vaping THC in public is not an option. Circumstances might require you to hit up every chance that you get and there may come to a point where having to get your buzz in a public place is the only way. However, before you pick up your vape pen and press that fire button, it would be wise to remember these tips for vaping THC on-the-go.
If you haven’t yet checked out the vaping lifestyle yet, then looking for a convenient, discreet vape pen isn’t a problem. Check out this list from TheVape.Guide of the best vape pens available. Otherwise, if you are all set, then if you are all set, then let’s take a look at some considerations that you need to ponder when taking your vape pen out and about with you.
KNOW WHERE TO VAPE
Just like with smoking, vaping is being highly regulated by the government. Laws have been put into place in each state to determine which places allow vaping and what the rules are for vaping weed in public. As of now, most states in the U.S. have made it illegal to vape marijuana in public. As well, most establishments and businesses have also made it a policy to prevent vapers from using their vape pens and e-cigs in public.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For instance, in Alaska, the Marijuana Control Board recently excluded retail stores from the ban on vaping marijuana in public places so long as they possess a consumption endorsement from the board. With this in mind, before making the decision to fire up your freshly loaded vape pen at the supermarket or on the train, it would be wise to consult with the management of the establishment first. As well, if you are unsure about the state laws on this matter, do some research so you can avoid trouble down the line.
Avoid unwanted attention by using a compact vape pen that is easy to load and inconspicuous.
This tip ties into our previous one in that considering the laws and regulations on vaping, especially bud, it would be wise to be as discreet as possible with your vaping. It is not only good etiquette but it avoids unwanted glares from people who can’t stand it. First, if you haven’t already done so, pick up a vape pen for your vaping pleasures.
Choose one that is compact (small enough to fit in your pocket or purse). The last thing you need is to bust out the bad boy and start cloud chasing during the long commute to work and it can be easily concealed once you finish your hit. You also want to get one that you can easily use. Don’t try to get a fancy one that is too complicated for you to use.
The key is to be discreet and stealthy. There is nothing stealthy about fiddling with a vape pen that you don’t know how to load or use. Lastly, make sure to bring just enough of your sticky supply to last you while you are out of the house. This way, you won’t find yourself on empty at the worst possible time and you can avoid a sticky mess.
BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS
>Smoking cigarettes has become a stigma in today’s society for its awful smell and, obviously, harmful effects on the user and others around them. However, while vaping isn’t nearly as bad as smoking, it has steadily grown to carry this same stigma in public, especially among those who don’t understand the whole vaping culture. With that said, be considerate of where you decide to vape and avoid vaping around certain people like children.
While vaping doesn’t consist of the secondhand smoke that can cause harm to these small tots, it is still wise to avoid vaping around them. As well, if you are in a situation where you feel that your vaping is causing an issue, you typically have one of three options. You can either (1) stop vaping, (2) continue vaping somewhere else, or (3) use this opportunity to possibly educate the person glaring at you from across the room.
>While this might seem like terrible advice, maybe the person just doesn’t understand how vaping works and has already stereotyped it as an equivalent to smoking. Maybe they will become more tolerant if you make the attempt.
