E-Cigarettes: The Last Bastion Of My Analog Life Goes Digital
Benjamin Ocampo, owner of the The Vape Supply Company on North Hill Avenue in Pasadena, said he was going for a lounge-like atmosphere with taupe-colored walls, a long wooden bar and booth-style seating.

Marco Malfitano, 44, of Pasadena, said he vapes “anywhere and everywhere.” A 30-year cigarette smoker, Malfitano said the devices helped him quit.

He said he’ll try to explain that it is not smoke but vapor or steam, but he’ll gladly step outside with cigarette smokers.

It’s that whole sensation of smoking without all the messiness — the smell, ash and burn holes in your shirts,” he said, noting his wife, a former cigarette smoker, now only smokes e-cigarettes. “Another benefit is it ends up being cheaper than smoking either cigarettes or cigars,” he added.
