Current State of Underground Vaping and The Black Market

The underground vaping market is thriving thanks to asinine regulations and it’s only getting worse. The saying goes, every time a law is made another business is created. It holds true for vaping as well. Every time they pass another limiting regulation, the underground market gets bigger and bigger. It’s a shame that it has to be called underground or black. Vapers have always made their own devices. It started with flashlights because ecigs weren’t satisfying their cravings. Now doing such things is illegal, thanks to predicate laws that don’t make any sense and limits on tanks and power.

The only thing that makes sense with vaping is the demands of the market. Market economics are always spot on. Supply and demand never lie. Supply is out pacing demand, thanks to mass manufacturing and the smear campaign against vaping. People are afraid that vaping is worse for them than cigarettes but people are still converting to vaping. More people would convert if it wasn’t for the smear campaign. For current vapers, this isn’t all bad news.

Since many people are afraid of vaping, supply has far outpaced demand for several years now. This has led to huge price cuts across the board. Even VaporFi, one of the biggest companies in the vaping industry, cut their prices by 20-30%. You can buy mods today for less than $50 that would have cost over $300 just five years ago. Now is the best time to stock up on equipment ahead of regulations. You can get anything you need at basement prices. If regulations never come to fruition and the smear campaign ends, then people will start vaping in droves. That’s when the supply/demand ratio will change and prices are likely to rise. Who knows by how much, but it’s almost a guarantee that they’ll rise.
