Last month the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released its draft regulations for electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). The FDA has been
caught cherry picking the available evidence that millions of American smokers have quit or substantially reduced their smoking thanks to
e-cigarettes, blindly accepting any assertion that favors aggressive regulation that are based on a faulty understanding of the science.
FDA deeming regs:
The real science being done here:
"This is a classic case of government imposing a 'solution' and then looking for a problem," said CASAA President Julie Woessner, J.D. "The
regulations do nothing to address real concerns, and instead are a slow-motion ban of the high quality e-cigarettes that have helped so many smokers
quit. The rules would mostly require busy-work filings that impose huge costs with little apparent benefit."
The FDA intends to impose a costly registration and approval process that would effectively eliminate refillable devices that are preferred by
experienced users like myself. This would in effect ensure that only a few large companies like big tobaccos cig-a-like devices who can mass produce
these largely infective disposable products would be able to afford the necessary filings.
Worthless and expensive cig-a-like devices.
Now you're talking! VV- mod with a Tank!!!
Research shows that higher-quality hardware and appealing flavors are important for smoking cessation. Many former smokers, including myself, report
that they are tempted to go back to smoking while using the smaller devices with imitation tobacco flavoring, but we have quit smoking for good, now
that there is better hardware and flavors that no longer reminded us of smoking.
These regulations have nothing to do with the public safety of e-cigs, public health or protecting the baby's. It has everything to do with protecting
corporate interest and the smoking economy.
The smoking economy is all the money generated by smokers and all the people who depend on the smokers money. The money trail is long and twisted and
everyone with their hand in the smokers pocket has a financial interest in keeping those people smoking.
Everyone from the American Heart and lung Association's, state Attorney's General to so called public health groups depends on smokers. The FDA, State
economies and city budgets depend on smoking tax revenue to balance their books. This why many states, cities, counties, and other entities have taken
action against the electronic cigarette, as they depend on the immense MSA
(Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement)
payments to stave off bankruptcy.
Those payments are already starting to shrink due to falling cigarette sales caused by the growing e-cig sales.
State Bonds in jeopardy as
Tobacco Cash Fades
Dozens of states, counties and cities issued the bonds to receive billions of dollars upfront from the 1998 settlement. But now they are seeing
smaller payments than expected from the companies as tobacco sales decline in America. There is also a renewed legal battle between the states and the
tobacco companies, with the companies holding back nearly $8 billion in settlement payments, pending resolution.
So far, California, Ohio and Virginia, as well as Nassau County in New York, have resorted to tapping special tobacco-bond reserves to pay their
bondholders, something analysts consider a technical default because it effectively means the bondholders are being paid with their own money.
Here is an FDA propaganda piece, where is the science?..hmmm.
People, please look at the science, and the evidence, the regulators are not interested in your health, it has always been about the money, and will
always be about the money. It is up to you to be informed and care for your health, being a none-smoker will not pay the legislators car or mortgage,
smoking and dying will.
Don't be fooled by the FDA and it's lies, get involved and stop government corruption, your life could depend on it.
