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…”
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.
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.
