    Optimistic, but who is going to deliver a small bottle unchecked for contents that you have to validate the content of to customs, never mind the courier fees. May work, but I think it may end up meaning making the most expensive juice in SA history.

    Not trying to be negative, I’m down to my last 15 mls, and 2 in needs may or may not be getting 12 mls of that in a solution they need to help them through this time. So 3 mls left for me until I can get / afford to get again, luckily I have mixed some juice for myself and as I vape at 2 mg in diy I may be ok for a while. Let’s hope we can make another local plan, starting extraction from fruit and veg seems like a expensive / complicated option and may be a dangerous one as well, I’m not qualified. But I will remain positive something good will happen.

    Couriers wont open your package but customs might, and it's against the law to misrepresent packages under normal circumstances, so you may be opening yourself up to more than a fine if found out.

    I recall using DR-Dos (digital research) back then, mainly because of their version of the Xcopy command which enabled true 1:1 disk copies. Must've been the younger pirate in me.:fighting02:

    @vapeandacrepe The problem is Customs - they may not release it.

    You got a point, good and valid till you spoilt it when you said educate yourself with Google.
    Google is a means of acquiring information. What you do with it is up to you.

    Day 58 - 10:00
    Rest of the gang is gone shopping, ''The Girls'' are gone to Eastgate to buy ''rent'' - meaning they don't have cash but Checkers group is ''paying'' one of them with an allowance card, redeemable for groceries. So I go through the specials , making a list of essentials ,and they buy the items ,in lieu of rent .Not perfect but better than getting no rent at all . The other lady is an estate agent and they're not working at all.

    MY BROADBAND :
    Cigarette ban in South Africa may last until 2021 – FMF
    Bradley Prior22 May 2020
    [​IMG]

    Free Market Foundation (FMF) CEO Leon Louw believes that the cigarette ban in South Africa may last until 2021.

    “Smokers should be prepared to pay R20 for a single cigarette or R200 a box for many months to come,” said Louw.

    “The pandemic will be with us in some form until next year, so don’t expect tobacco sales to be unbanned before 2021.”

    Louw told MyBroadband that cooperative governance minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma told the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) that the sale of tobacco and alcohol should remain banned until South Africa reaches level 1 of lockdown.

    I need to print some CBD stickers then.
    You know how it works. They see clouds they see smoke. They see smoke they see smoking. Lots of explanation later and your free to go.

    When I drive around I see:
    Beggars and sellers at the robots
    Gardeners with lawnmowers sitting on pavement advertising their services
    People trading stuff through car windows left right and center
    Fastfood shops selling food from their premises
    Cake shops open
    People not wearing masks
    etc etc etc

    So who is going to stop me vaping in my car?

    You can't be sure today, "rules", "laws", "regulations", everything is so fluid, keeps changing all the time.

    I see what you're saying, and I'm also saying nicotine can be sold legally if labeled pesticide. Not alot will take that chance, but it would make it legal.
