Hookah And Vape Smoking Lounges

Thursday, August 20

You may have noticed that hookah and vape smoking lounges are popping up all over town.  A former tobacco state, North Carolina has joined others in making the use of tobacco difficult and that is part of the reason for these lounges. Discouragement of tobacco has also given rise to alternative forms of smoking like electronic cigarettes. Younger people are attracted to vapes and these lounges and we find out why and more about them.
