Eric Scheman If you haven't been to Colorado as of late, it has become quite commonplace to find vaporizers in all settings of everyday life. Whether taking a quick hit during an employee break, having a stealth toke in a movie theater, or taking a bold " vape" during a Bronco's game, vaporizers have quickly become the choice of marijuana advocates that like their medication "on the go." The pervasiveness of vaporizers and vape pens in today's world, especially since the onset of recreational legalization of cannabis in Colorado, has prompted Oxford Dictionaries to choose the word "vape" as its word of the year for 2014. Beating out words like "budtender" and "slacktivism", vape took the crown. As a verb, vape literally means "to inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device", according to the Oxford Dictionary. Some other interesting facts regarding the word "vape" is that you are thirty times more likely to come across the word, than you were two years ago and the actual usage of the word has more than doubled in the past year. According to the Oxford Dictionary, "vape" is also a modifier for other common nouns in the vaping industry such as vape pens, vape shop, vape fluid, vape juice, as well as others. Only time will tell if other culturally accepted words from the marijuana industry make their way to the Oxford Dictionary, but as for now, the "vape" in on.

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it
just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
