Imagine for a moment that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has overstepped their authority in “deeming” anything to do with e-cigarettes.
Imagine there’s a little-known process used to challenge regulations imposed when the federal authority, by law, did not coordinate with state and local municipalities.
Now, imagine there’s a small town in the United States willing to take it upon themselves to challenge the authority having jurisdiction over these regulations.
The Village of Hartland, Wisconsin has done just that. They have hosted three days of public hearings and testimony of what is called “coordination” with Hearing Officer Fred Kelly Grant, Esq. at the helm.
The Electronic Vaping Coalition of America (EVCA) has explained what “coordination” is here.
Three days of testimony
Testimony in Hartland was presented by Cory Winston, Azim Chowdhury, Shaun Casey, Antonio Lauria, Lou Ritter, Jeff Stier, Aaron Biebert, Johnson Creek Vapor Company, Bill Godshall and more.

Next Steps After FDA Coordination Hearing
Imagine the businesses who are going out of business.
Imagine the health implications of the imposed regulations by the FDA and the organizations who have supported them.
Imagine the person who walks into a vape shop and can’t be helped properly, if the vape shop will even exist within the next year.
Now imagine taking the time to listen, to ask questions, stand UP, question the
lack of integrity and frankly, DO something.
Imagine saying enough is enough.
