Electronic Cigarette shop to open in Broadstairs

Broadstairs will be seeing Kent's Broadstairs' first Vape Coffee Shop open for users of electronic cigarettes.

I caught up with Sean Donnellan, the proprietor of Vape Elite for the inside scoop.

Is the Gazette too biased?

Is it just me or does the local press have a political agenda?

If there is one thing that you cannot accuse the Thanet Gazette of being it's unbiased. Take, for example, the ongoing news of candidates selected to stand for Thanet South. You could be forgiven for thinking that only the right have managed to stand anyone.

Should we legalise Cannabis?

Should we legalise Cannabis to prevent the sale of more harmful "legal highs"?

Cannabis Joint

Given the news that Trading Standards are cracking down on the dangerous "legal highs" is it time to consider the less leathal yet non-legal alternatives?
