  2. The FDA allows us consume unhealthy chemicals every day in our food. This affects more Americans than tobacco ever will!

  3. We aim to work with the FDA to prove that Vaping is safe. It will take us all working together not against each other.

  7. +NextNewsNetwork I hope u guys look further into this. If these proposals go through lots of people and businesses will go out of business. I make my own e liquid and if I was going to sell what I make here's what I have to do. Get a lawyer cuz if I screw up the app and leave anything blank or incorrectly fill it out then it's tossed out and have to do it again. I would get no refund on the application fee either. Let's I want to apply for one of my simple single flavored liquids. I'd get a lawyer and that's costs money plus let's say for example purposes $1,500 app fee and $1500 per ingredient. Which contains VG PG nic and one flavoring=$7,500 and now I have to submit each milligram I carry and that's 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 so total cost for one flavor would be $66,000 and no way that most of these small liquid makers with all the different flavors they have could even pay that much. I hope u read your comments thank you 🙂

  8. When drinking alcohol was banned, the mafia started.  I wonder what will happen if smoking is also banned.  Hmmmm..

  9. They are just trying to figure out how to tax e-cigs like tobacco.

  10. Why do you keep saying tobacco? Just a thought, but how about doing a little research into what you are reporting…

  11. It's so ridiculous that you can't even smoke an e-cig inside your own car at a computer / camera operated bank teller drive up! I know, they're all hating us for our freedom here in the USSA.

  12. cause as long as the gov can "regulate/tax" it somehow makes it "safe"

  13. have all the mind, mood and thought altering drugs your doctor can tell you to take to feel better, but e cigs are dangerous!

  14. Regs regs everywhere, but not a drop of good to be found.

  15. This is only the beginning, e-Cigs are getting popular and cutting into tax revenues, so they can't have that. 

    I made the switch over to e-cigs a year ago and haven't touched a cigarette since.  I smell better, breathe easier, and my teeth are white again.

  16. Yet another "gateway" myth from those loving agents so zealously protecting us.
