Vamo V2 Review

About 10 months ago I came across a sale from VaporBeast where they had the Vamo V2 on sale for $14! I snatched it up quick, fast and in a hurry because my Kanger eMow was having some problems and by this point I really wanted to get a unit where the battery was removable….

The Wiz Live

The Atlanta Black Star published and article entitled Not All Peaceful: 13 Racist Quotes Gandhi Said About Black People. Now, I’m not very familiar with this publication, but I’m giving it a serious side eye right now. Why? Well because I’m not exactly sure what their endgame is here. Surely when it was posted on…
