What do you mean by a Vape Ban? How can "they" do that? I switched to Vaping for so many good reasons!
What can you do about this? Take ACTION!
If you are an adult vapor consumer or an e-cigarette/vape retailer, the time to act is now! There's a legislative fix in Congress - introduced by Reps. Tom Cole (R-OK) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA) - called the Cole-Bishop Amendment which will protect vapor products.
The Cole-Bishop Amendment will help keep your favorite vapor and eCigarette products on the market and improve the regulations by:
- Allowing a more sensible FDA approval process for existing and future products;
- Providing quality standard for e-cigarette & vapor product batteries; and
- Making sure that sales, advertising and marketing is done responsibly and is intended for adults.
Any vapor product introduced after the 2007 "predicate date" must now go through a long and expensive FDA premarket review process just to stay on the market.
The FDA premarket review process is so expensive and full of paperwork and red tape that it will stop innovation and product improvements because any and every change will have to go through this lengthy regulatory process.
The cost to get through FDA ranges from several hundred thousand dollars to several million dollars just for one product. Vapor companies and stores cannot afford these costs and many, if not most companies could go out of business.
The new FDA regulations hold vapor products to the same date as cigarette regulations – going back to 2007 – long before most vapor products were on the market.
If the date does not change, vapor products will be treated worse than cigarettes – that's just not right.
The bottom line: only Congress can fix the 2007 date and stop this virtual Vape ban.
So ACT NOW to Stop the Vape Ban. Support a sensible legislative solution. If we do nothing, the Virtual Vape Ban Will Happen! One day you may find your favorite vape store closed... and retail shelves empty.
