FDA accepting PUBLIC & Private Industry comments on E-cigarettes & tobacco. Are you shrugging shoulders?

deemingIf you believe your e-cigarette has saved your life or someone you love, or if you are a smoker/tobacco user in those descriptions, you need to pay attention to those red underlined words just above in the graphic…. I saw 60 something comments on Friday, as of the time of this post, there are only 75 on the FDA site.

Are you all shrugging your shoulders? Procrastinating? Get this DONE. Will it matter? I don’t know. I do know this,  it’s been done in other realms (like gun control) in the United States.

I know you’ve got ’till April 15th, so if you’re reading this, you’ve got till today! 🙂


I quote:

“Proposed newly “deemed” products would include electronic cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, certain dissolvables that are not “smokeless tobacco,” gels, and waterpipe tobacco.”

If they regulate they can restrict, tax, control and could eventually ban.

By tax, I mean like TOBACCO tax.


A LOT is at stake. E-cigarettes, cigars…. it’s not just vapers……… you roll your own and use pipe tobacco?

Yep………… you too.


YES you can comment personally.  Yes you SHOULD comment personally. YES you should make sure your local shop has done it. YES vendors should tell every person walking in their store to blow clouds or buy tobacco. Do I sound a bit pissy? Well I AM!

Dismiss this all you like, but read the picture above again where I’ve underlined in red, then read the link below, click on the link  below and then ask yourself if you’re not pissed yet.


If you don’t think bans can happen, think again: http://www.ecigarette-politics.com/electronic-cigarettes-global-legal-status.html


If you’re still here, awesome.

So, when I went to it, I was a bit confused… US Government doesn’t make it easy, eh? Well we’ve got till April 15th to submit our public comments here:
