You may or may not be aware that since last week the CASAA, or the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association, AKA the voice of the vaping community at large, has been encouraging everyone in this industry to contact the White House to demand that the impending Tobacco Deeming Regulations be revised in a more accommodating manner.
The Tobacco Deeming Regulations have been proposed by the FDA to regulate the market, and in doing so, 99.9% of all vapor products will be removed from sale in the next 2 – 4 years. Yes, that is as unjust and as crazy as it sounds, and because this is a serious and imminent threat, all vapers are being encouraged to stand up for their rights to have access to these products.
The counter bill to the FDA regulations is Bill HR 2058, and its aim is to keep all vapor related products (including e-cigarettes, vape mods, personal vaporizers, cartridges, e-liquids, tanks, cartomizers, accessories, etc) available and accessible to adults who choose to use these products. Consumer choice and freedom to use such products is in direct danger, and all of the progress this industry has generated, between the amount of businesses, (including small businesses), jobs, and people who have been able to stop their tobacco usage because of them, would all come to a disastrous halt. To see all of this progress jeopardized in favor of a ruling that is based on legalities that date back to 2007, when the industry was in its embryonic infancy, is beyond ludicrous.
So, if vaping is part of your life, please join the tens of thousands of vapers and members of the e-cigarette industry in making your voice heard. Please call the White House to voice the need for support of Bill HR 2058, and email your local representatives, asking for their support. Our rights to access vapor products of great benefit are at stake.
