Thoughts for the Ecig Community

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…”

 

But not totally Healthy.  This article exams the results of a scientific study by an interdependent source (Not funded by e-cig companies of cigarette companies) and shows that E-cigs are definitely safer that regular cigarettes… but not safer than not doing either.

Read the article for your self Here.

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.

If you enjoy e-cigs, this may effect you.  Visit CASAA (http://blog.casaa.org/2013/03/urgent-utah-bill-to-tax-e-cigarettes.html) and join in to voice your opinion to help stop this tax hike that may  remove e-cigs from smokers hands.  This may be you or your friends effect next.  Let’s let them know what e-cigs mean to us.

Go to CASAA (http://blog.casaa.org/2013/03/urgent-utah-bill-to-tax-e-cigarettes.html) and let your voice be heard.

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.

The third and final section of the “Why Even Bother with Advanced E-Cigs?” article has been posted.  Once I review a Mechanical Mod, which is in the mail, I will begin posting all of my reviews on the Advanced Mod’s I’ve been using.

The next chapter into the discovery process of Advanced e-cigs is now up!

This chapter focuses on Atomizers, ohms, cartomizers and e-liquid delivery.

Follow this link to read more about Part 2 of 3 of this journey.

The process has begun for Advanced e-cigs reviews. I’ve been using some for sometime now and the reviews will begin to show on the site pretty soon. But, before I do, I had to answer one question a few people have asked already: “Why should I even bother with these huge Advanced E cigs?”

To really answer that question  we need to look at some basic information.  To this end, there is a three part… explanation of my personal journey and why I choose to explore e-cigs in the hopes that this may answer… some of your questions and maybe help guide you in this direction if you so choose.

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.
