BANNED: REDDIT BANS THE SALE AND GIVEAWAYS OF EJUICE

 

 

Reports have been flooding in about the new conduct of transactions policy on Reddit.   Apparently they have banned the sale and free giveaways of ejuice / pod systems under “controlled substances”.   This includes zero nic!

Many vendors are getting banned for selling, giving away products, and contests.  I know this is happening because many vendors told me their were banned.

The Vaporjoes Network was banned many years ago from Reddit so this doesn’t effect us, however those vapers that put a lot of stock in Reddit – this is indeed a sad day for you.  Now you can no longer sell or even give items away on the site.

 

This also opens up a can of worms. 

Can you link to an ejuice site for hardware but they also sell ejuice?
Can you link to a vaping show talking about juice?
Can you advertise your vaping show if you talk about juice?
Can you link to alternate sites where you can buy ejuice or enter a contest?
Can you get banned for dual use products that can also be used in ejuice (i.e. menthol crystals, bottles).
Can you buy advertising from Reddit if you sell ejuice?

There is now a TON of gray area and it will always have vapers looking over their shoulder worrying if they are going to get banned.

Even though I have a love / hate relationship with Reddit – it really does bother me.  Many people learned about vaping through reddit and many vendors make a living using reddit as part of their sales platform from running contests, giveaways, and private sales.
