These things are getting everywhere that you can imagine .
They're getting all the bad press."

"aping's been around for about a little over ten years i believe.
We've been open for nearly six.
And there's never been a constroversy until all the thc stuff come out."

It does have nicotine and has warning labels .
He says his ultimate goal is to get people to quit nicotine all together.
"all the juices we sell are fda- approved.
We have the big warning labels on both sides saying this contains nicotine, nicotine is an addictive chemical.
