Stop the Vape Ban, write your local News

Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new plan for regulations that extend some compliance deadlines.  The good news is that it gives the vape industry more time to prepare for the looming application deadlines.

The Bad News is that it doesn’t change the onerous and burdensome premarket tobacco application (PMTA) that will still lead to a virtual vape ban. Unfortunately, these regulations do not lead to a solution that will save the industry or the right to vape. Additionally, there is also no change to the controversial “grandfather” date of February 2007.

The majority of vape industry businesses cannot afford the PMTA process. Many will have to close their doors. Your favorite vape products will be off the market. Jobs will be lost.

Help us Stop The Vape Ban and show your support of H.R.1136, the FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2017.  Writing a letter to the editor  of your local newspaper can have a huge impact.  These matter to your Members of Congress – they read them! Please click the link below and provide us with a few details, and we can help.

Sincerely,

Stop the Vape Ban Team

P.S. The “Letter to the Editor” section is one of the most widely read parts of most newspapers. A published letter can be VERY effective in alerting others to take action.
