New York, NY, December 06, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Noted keynote speaker and trends expert Daniel Levine is noticing a change in the way intoxicating substances are being presented. After years of regulation cigarettes, marijuana, and alcohol are being recreated.
“Vices in the United States are moving on to the next generation,” says Levine, a leading expert in consumer trends. “Alcohol, cigarettes, and other intoxicants are trending forward in response to new ideas and old laws. Traditional ways of thinking appear to be out the door as new creations are made.”
The electronic cigarette is trending right now, and changes are already being adopted to make the battery-powered, water vapor-based device more useful and user friendly. The e-cigarette is growing in popularity in response to smoking bans and health concerns. While the device is also being banned, institutions like London’s Heathrow Airport are creating “vaping” zones that allow users to get their fix.
Marijuana is a trend in states like Colorado and Washington, where the drug’s sale is now legal. The trend is gaining steam as licenses are being issues to the first recreational-use stores. Before, marijuana was only legal for medical purposes. And the new laws are already inspiring creative ideas. A craft brewer in Washington is already producing a hemp-flavored beer, and others are sure to follow this idea.
Even alcohol is getting a futuristic upgrade. While the craft beer and liquor continue to grab all of the attention, it’s alcohol vapor that is trending forward. Mixologists are putting a modern spin on hard alcohol, vaporizing it so they “drinker” can inhale their drink. The alcohol does not have to be digested, creating a radically different experience.
“This trend proves there is an endless demand for these types of vices,” says Levine. “Laws can regulate and curb sales, but they cannot alter the desire individuals have for these products.”
