Citizen’s Petition requesting FDA Vapor PMTA delay

CASAA

PMTA filing deadline is currently September 9, 2020

Click here to make your comment on the Citizen’s Petition!

On August 25, Keller and Heckman LLP filed a Citizen’s Petition with the FDA requesting that the PMTA filing deadline of September 9, 2020 be delayed by 180 days. This petition is requesting that FDA go back to the US District Court for the District of Maryland to request a deadline extension, which the court recently granted for small cigar manufacturers that are being negatively impacted by this coronavirus pandemic.

  • All interested parties are invited to comment on the Citizen’s Petition by filling out the form provided on this page and customizing your message.
  • If you are writing on behalf of a small, open-system manufacturing company, please follow the instructions here.

If granted, the extension would move the deadline for small, open-system manufacturers to March 8, 2021. The request is predicated on a recent action taken by FDA in which small cigar manufacturers are being granted a similar extension due to complications and delays to completing PMTA’s associated with COVID-19.

It is vital that people who use vapor products make their voices heard! While this pandemic is obviously putting a strain on services for businesses, people who depend on safer nicotine alternatives in order to stay smoke-free are being even more challenged by the prospects of losing access to these products and feeling pressured to go back to smoking. Whether it’s by regulation or global disaster, removing vapor products from the market threatens to inflict irreversible harm to millions of people.

Thank you for taking action!

NEW VTA CTA: Reject S.1253 U.S. VapeMail Illegal

VTA LOGO

WE NEED YOU TO SOUND OFF AND TAKE ACTION NOW! Details for how to take action here.   

FROM THE TRENCHES
July 17, 2020
VTA is the national association defending your right to vape and sell vapor products because we are all in this together. 
CALL TO ACTION: DEFEND YOUR ACCESS TO VAPOR PRODUCTS
On July 2, the Senate passed S. 1253  – dubbed Preventing the Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Youth Act  – a bill that would effectively prohibit online sales of e-cigarettes and would outright prohibit the USPS from delivering vapor products. This bill, driven by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), places e-cigarettes into the Preventing All Cigarette Trafficking Act of 2009 (PACT) Act. Forcing e-cigarettes into the PACT Act is a simplistic concept that is antiquated, unnecessary, and completely out of step with the times. First, the bill’s “signature on delivery” requirement will require contact during every delivery at a time when the nation’s online sales model is now “contact-less” delivery to protect against COVID-19. Second, those fortunate to still have jobs are working harder than ever to make ends meet, and first and second shift workers don’t have the time to drive to stores during business hours, nor the ability to sit at home waiting to sign for a delivery of their vapor products. Third, hard pressed Americans can’t absorb the exorbitant cost of an additional $6.00 per transaction just to have the product delivered to their door, assuming any common carriers will even continue to deliver.We expect the House to vote on the bill when it returns from recess next week. VTA’s team in D.C. is actively working on this issue, but we need YOUR help. WE NEED YOU TO SOUND OFF AND TAKE ACTION NOW! Details for how to take action here.

Reject Ban on Vape Mail via U.S. Mail

CASAA

US – Keep Vape Mail Legal! (Reject S.1253)

(Update – 07.18.20)

S. 1253 has already passed the Senate and will now be voted on by the House, maybe as soon as Monday (7/20). If passed, this bill will outlaw vape mail through the US Postal Service and within six months it will be illegal to ship any vapor products via USPS.

What happens to online purchases?
Banning USPS from shipping vapor products will force companies to use private carriers like FedEx and UPS. In addition to these carriers being more expensive than USPS, they also do not deliver mail to all Americans. Private carriers routinely outsource deliveries to rural areas or neighborhoods they deem “dangerous” to USPS in order to cut costs. Removing USPS as an option means that some people will have no way of purchasing vapor products. For everyone else, it means they will pay higher prices and they’ll be forced to break social distancing rules because a signature will be required on delivery. Additionally, private carriers could eventually cave to political pressures and also ban the shipment of vapor products.

Can’t we just purchase in stores instead?
Not all consumers of vapor products have access to brick and mortar stores due to their health, disabilities, or even their location. And with the PMTA deadline quickly approaching in September, the selection of products deemed legal by the government will be so small that many stores won’t be able to legally stay open.

Meanwhile, cigarettes will remain the most visible and widely accessible tobacco product in the history of the world.

Why are they doing this?
The supporters of this bill argue that preventing the shipment of vapor products will prevent teens from getting their hands on it, and reduce youth usage. What they don’t tell you is that less than 6% of youth report buying vapor products online, according to the CDC’s 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey. Most young people report getting vapor products and other age-restricted products from friends, family, and informal sources–sources that are about to become much more popular after September.

Not only is S. 1253 a solution in search of a problem;

it’s part of the problem!

(Update 07.06.20)

S. 1253, which would prohibit shipping vapor products through the USPS (just like the ban on mailing cigarettes) was passed by the Senate on July 2, and the text of the amended bill is finally available on congress .gov.

While a significant amendment was adopted that requires an extensive list of research to be completed, the effect of the bill remains the same: No vapor products will be allowed to be shipped via the USPS. This means increased costs to consumers and new barriers to access for law-abiding adults.

At the same time, this bill will do very little to discourage young people from seeking out informal sources of age-restricted and illicit products. Friends, family, and strangers will continue supplying underage experimenters while people who don’t have access to a reliable brick and mortar vape shop will be pressured to return to smoking. (Cigarettes are still the most widely sold and popular tobacco product on the market!)

Take action now and urge your representative to reject S. 1253!


(Update 07.02.10)

S. 1253, which would prohibit mailing vapor products through the USPS and require signature on delivery (with added cost) may be heading to a vote by the full senate within the hour.

If you think that protecting access to low-risk vapor products for people who can’t get to a vape shop is valuable, then now is the time to surge emails to your senators.

Take action now and urge your senators to reject S. 1253!

(Update – 06.29.20)

Last week, CASAA members sent more than 3000 messages to congress urging officials to reject a ban on vape mail shipped via the USPS. Despite your response, S. 1253 is getting closer to moving forward by the day.

We need a sustained response to this bill in order to demonstrate to lawmakers that many people rely on getting vapor products by mail and that consumers shouldn’t be paying unnecessary extra costs in order to access safer alternatives to smoking.
Please click here to take action now
by contacting your senators
and urging them to reject this bill.

In the midst of a pandemic involving a severe respiratory illness, the last thing that officials should be implementing is a policy that threatens to send millions of people back to smoking!

Thank you for taking action!

June2020 ECigIntelligence Survey

Start the survey!
TO ALL AMERICANS WHO TRY TO QUIT SMOKING OR HAVE ALREADY DONE SO!
ECigIntelligence is running its first US Survey on the usage of alternative nicotine products!

The aim of this study is to better understand the range of tobacco products used by nicotine users, including vape, traditional tobacco (cigarettes, cigars etc.), oral tobacco (chew/dip/snuff/snus), nicotine pouches (tobacco-free) and other nicotine products.We believe that highlighting and publishing reputable data on this sector brings a better understanding amongst stakeholders and will likely result in more informed regulation.

Start the survey!

Rest assured, all your responses will be kept anonymous and should take 5-10 minutes to complete.

Colorado, Say No To Vapor Tax 2020

ACT NOW – IMMEDIATE CALL TO ACTION NEEDED IN COLORADO TO FIGHT DESTRUCTIVE TAX INCREASE

This week, the Colorado legislature is set to vote on a measure which includes a significant tax increase on vapor products. As Coloradans reel with the impacts of the current pandemic, lawmakers are trying to sneak in this backdoor tax while allowing for little to no debate or input from the vapor industry.
 
We need your help to ensure that this tax does not pass the legislature. Below, please find an email template that we urge you to send to your state representatives, listed here: https://leg.colorado.gov/findmylegislator
 
Call, email, take to social media. Tell your state legislators today to say NO to a tax increase on vapor products. Be sure to follow VTA on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-date information on this legislation.
 
Thank you for working with us in our fight to save vapor.

Sincerely,


Tony Abboud
Executive Director
SUBJ: VOTE NO ON HARMFUL TAX LEGISLATION 
 
I am writing as a voter, taxpayer, and constituent urging you to oppose a tax increase on vapor products.
 
Studies show that taxing vapor products pushes adults back to traditional cigarettes — which is the last thing we should be doing in the midst of a global pandemic. A study by the National Institutes of Health published in February of 2020 showed that for every 10% increase in e-cigarette prices due to taxes, sales were reduced by 26%. More importantly, this increased use of traditional cigarettes by 11%.
 
Additionally, tax policies place a disproportionate strain on small businesses and consumers. Small businesses are already suffering extreme cash flow problems due to the coronavirus. Now is not the time to impose an increased tax that will only force them to shut their doors. It is simple: taxes close businesses.
 
I hope you will review this material and seriously consider the implications of this legislation before voting.
 
Thank you for your time,
[INSERT YOUR NAME]
