EXTREMELY URGENT!
Fourth Call to Action
For FDA Proposed Regulations
SUBMIT YOUR COMMENT

 
On Thursday, May 8th, CASAA released the Overview of its Action Plan Regarding Proposed FDA Regulations.

As noted in CASAA’s Action plan, this is not a battle that is going to be won based solely on comments to the proposed regulations. Accordingly, we are attacking this on several different fronts. Before the draft regulations were published, we had envisioned a single Call to Action with several suggested actions. However, upon seeing the details, we decided the best strategy to effect positive change is to prepare a comprehensive Action Plan which consists of several Calls to Action issued at staggered dates to maximize effectiveness, and extending beyond comments to the FDA docket.

  • On May 11, 2014, CASAA released the  first of several Calls to Action anticipated in CASAA’s Action Plan.
  • On May 21st, 2014, CASAA released the secondCall to Action.
  • On June 13, 2014,  CASAA released the third Call to Action.
  • On July 17, 2014, CASAA released the first Call to Prepare.
  • On July 23, 2014, CASAA released the secondCall to Prepare.

Today, we issued the 

FOURTH CALL TO ACTION

in 

CASAA’s Action Plan

providing instructions on submitting your comment. 

The Fourth Call to Action contains instructions on (1) assembling the content you prepared pursuant to the first and second Calls to Prepare and (2) submitting your comment to the FDA.

Note that there will be two versions. The Fourth Call to Action linked below is for people who understand what is going on and are willing to spend some time to be maximally effective. But we recognize that not all consumers are even aware of the FDA’s proposed regulations and how those regulations will impact them.

In an effort to reach as many consumers as possible, we will be issuing a streamlined Call to Action in the next day or two which will be designed for vendors to forward to customers. The streamlined Call to Action will facilitate comments from those consumers who might not otherwise know about the proposed regulations or are not willing to put in the effort described here. Of course, we encourage anyone who can to complete the version described here rather than using the streamlined version.

Please see the Fourth Call to Action for details.

Forward, repost, and share . . . and explain to others why this is so important.

Celebration
For the week ending in 2/7, our weekly winner is:

Andrew!

Congratulations Andrew!

V2 Cigs Weekly Give Away!

V2 Cigs reached out to me a little while ago about a promotion for my readers.  This is a chance for all of you who are thinking about quitting smoking or wanting to help a family member or friend quit smoking to have receive a great introductory kit.  Every week on Friday we will have a drawing where one lucky winner will win a V2 Cigs Ultimate Kit!

The big question on everyone’s mind is: What happened to Safecig? They were one of the products on my “To Do” list. I heard from some readers who asked me the same question. I tried to contact them again… nothing. The site is down. I really hope they pull through, a lot of people had great things to say about them. As I find info, I’ll be sure to post. But, those batteries don’t have to go to waste. For all present Safecig users, you can get an adapter! That way you don’t have to buy a whole new kit.

I was just on thevapebabe.com‘s site and watched, we more like listened to, the speech by Bill Godshall, founder and Director of Smoke-Free Pennsylvania.

The comment she made about it was:

People like this make me smile! We all have to do our part to protect what is rightfully ours as a safer alternative to analog cigarettes!!!

So, naturally I was curious.  And I listened to him.  This guy is dead on.  He has his facts, he knows the regulations.  He was very passionate about  this subject he knows so much about, harm reduction from tobacco cigarettes.  He let the panel ask questions and he responded with facts, dates, studies… everything but the kitchen sink.  I loved it as well.  So much so that I’m reposting the video also so even more people can witness… Bill Godshall.

Merry Christmas everyone!  Hope it’s filled with love, health and wonderful memories!

VPLive, which post an update every Wednesday at about 9:30pm EST, hosted a show on December 19 and they had Linc Williams, aka BaldGroove, Director of We Are Vapors and a member of  AEMSA spoke about his testimony in front of the FDA panel on tobacco harm reduction.  It was a very passionate speech about his trails and tribulations on the road away from regular cigarettes.  I urge all vapors to watch and keep your ears open because things could be moving in the government concerning ecigs.

I started the video at the point of the interview, but I recommend watching the entire video, they are always very informative.

Grimm Green was asked this question, as have I been asked, and his answer… well, lets just say he summed up it for me.

Here is an actual video from the company White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes where they torture E-Cigs and see if they explode. Warning, do not try this at home. Any of it, really.

The new site configuration is now live!

Check out the new site design and stay tuned for even more updates.  Over the next few weeks several new layouts will take place as well as formats.
