- Extremely Important CTA–>Flavor Ban: Submit a Comment to the Federal Register on E-liquid Flavors. A Rule on flavors will take place after our comments are heard. Our opinion matters and must be heard. Please submit your comment including your need for flavors to continue smoke free. Be polite in your submission. This is for real and will count tremendously. Mention every flavor you like no matter how juvenile the name. Such as Cotton Candy, Fruity Cereal or pop tart flavors. We are adults, however, many of us still enjoy flavors from our childhood. Let them know today!
- The Count for today at the FDA. See the comments already in by the Vape Community, family and friends.
There is a deadline in Congress that is quickly approaching! A federal spending bill is being discussed NOW that could also include language that protects your right to vape and tightens restrictions on youth access! But to make sure the language stays in the spending bill, you should act now and spread the word!
We need to make sure that the final appropriations bill in the Senate has the “Cole-Bishop provision” that the House of Representatives has in its version of the bill. This crucial provision protects your right to vape, keeps your favorite products on the shelves, AND includes common-sense regulations that restrict underage access to vapor products.
Even if you have already reached out to your Members of Congress to Stop the Vape Ban, it is imperative that you reinforce your previous message! They need to hear YOUR story.
Visit the Stop The Vape Ban site now and let your Members of Congress know TODAY how important this issue is to you by tweeting them or sending an e-mail!
Stop the Vape Ban
The word around Capitol Hill is that this week is the final week for lawmakers to make their decisions on final language for the US budget appropriations bill. We have until Friday, March 9th to urge officials to support a predicate date change for vapor products (section 753).
We need your help in humanizing the tobacco harm reduction movement and your story is central to this effort.
Please visit August8th.org and click on the phone icon.
Click on “Call Me” and we’ll connect you with your senators.
Points to discuss on your call with your senators:
- Briefly, share your story about how switching to vaping has helped you.
- Politely tell staff that you would like your senator to support modernizing the predicate date for vapor products.
- Make sure you thank staff for taking the time to listen to your comments.
If you get a recording, please leave a message.
Also remember to follow up with an email and a tweet. Just like making a call, we’ll connect you at August8th.org.
Thank you for your participation and support,

IQOS: Tobacco seeks to simulate the winning vape industry with it’s own alternative. Although better than traditional cigs, it’s still smoking whatever BIG Tobacco wants you to inhale. Vape e-liquid contains no deadly tar. Tobacco does. Plus, the trust of what you are inhaling is on Big Tobacco’s hands to do their worst. Such as the 900+ chemicals included with the tobacco in cigarettes. Now in a vaping device such as used for MMJ, BIG Tobacco can attempt to create the illusion of a healthier alternative. We can only hope this format of IQOS does not fool some into continuing the deadly tobacco habit. In worse case, reverting vapers back to Big Tobacco dollars. Truly a genius move by RJ Reynolds and all in Big Tobacco. VapeWarriors are a smarter bunch, yet need to heed the warning to family and friends. IQOS is still smoking BIG TOBACCO unknown fillers not VAPING a clean e-liquid.
