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.

New York Seeking to Ban Flavored E-Liquid!!

Please follow this link and find out how You can help cattle this proposed ban New York officials are seeking to pass:

CASAA and NYC vapers had previously been led to believe that the sponsors of these proposed ordinances were likely to put forward amendments exempting e-cigarettes from NYC’s new definition of “tobacco product…”

 

The Panda Evolve Kit is now up!

California has a new bill that will attempt to ban e-cigs.  They are another of many states that are attempting to take action against e-cigs.  If passed they will label e-cigs as “is a hazard to the health of the general public” and regulate it as such.

You can take part in blocking this.  Just go to CASAA (The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free alternatives Associations) to find out how you can join in and help prevent this from happening.

Utah House shoots down a proposed tax hike for E-Cigs.  In a vote of 29 – 44, Utah’s House becomes yet another battleground hard fought and won for the e-cig community and vendors.  Putting a face to the fear the e-cig community is dreading if the FDA imposes regulation on E-cigs, this battle was closely watch by all involved.  Largely in part to the large e-cig community and CASAA I believe this happened.

Hopefully the e-cig community will continue to pull together and battle these laws as they come forward.  This, by no long shot is the end but still a great victory.

Now when you try to go to TheSafeCig.com, you are directed to Seminole Ecig. Who are they? I’m not sure. I’m still researching. Not sure if this is the rebranded version of SafeCig or a partner company. A few people believe they had to shut down due to pending legal issues (I personally believe if this was true, news would have leaked ahead of the site going down).

So, once again I am not sure what happened. But, there is another company offering abandoned SafeCig users a helping hand. EverSmoke is offering Free Kit (Yep, free) to all Ex SafeCig users to tide them over (I’m sure it’s more to get them to love their brand, which makes business since for them and… Free is free).

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.

We need your help to prevent the FDA from banning the sale or use of electronic cigarettes. Follow this link to sign the petition and stop them from banning our e-cigs.

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.

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.
