While the tobacco industry has been in sustained decline (mostly by design) in its place in recent years has been the vape industry, which was led by the Silicon Valley start-up Juul. It looked like it was unstoppable until a number of events kickstarted its dramatic decline.

Next up, for those looking for a horror, one of the best mystery thrillers from the past decade just landed on Netflix.
Northern Lights Films produced the indie horror on a tiny budget of about a million and went on to gross 21 times that at the box office. Critics absolutely adored it, with the movie boasting an 83 on Metacritic and an even juicier 95% on RottenTomatoes.
The plot revolves around a young woman who is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter.
