  • Is There Hope for Vaping in Brazil? | Vaping Unplugged Podcast with Alexandro “Hazard” Lucian Ep. 41

    Is There Hope for Vaping in Brazil? | Vaping Unplugged Podcast with Alexandro “Hazard” Lucian Ep. 41

    In this episode of Vaping Unplugged, we look into the heart of Brazil's stringent stance on vaping, offering our listeners a unique insight into the nation's regulatory landscape. As Brazil stands at the forefront with its nationwide ban on vapes, citing a stark absence of evidence on the therapeutic benefits and safety of vaping products, we unpack the layers of this complex issue. Our episode features an exclusive conversation with Alexandro “Hazard” Lucian, whose personal journey from a heavy smoker to a fervent vaping advocate and harm reduction proponent in Brazil is nothing short of extraordinary. Hazard's transformation from consuming three packs a day to embracing vaping as a healthier alternative is both inspiring and a testament to the potential benefits of vaping as a harm reduction tool. Liza Katsiashvili, the operations director of the World Vapers’ Alliance (WVA), navigates this insightful discussion, shedding light on the challenges faced by both policymakers and consumers within Brazil's vibrant but restricted vaping landscape. Together, they explore the anticipated repercussions of the upcoming COP10 conference on Brazil's vaping community and policies, hinting at a not-so-optimistic outlook.
