Posted 03.6.18

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!

From CASAA:

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:

  1. Briefly, share your story about how switching to vaping has helped you.
  2. Politely tell staff that you would like your senator to support modernizing the predicate date for vapor products.
  3. Make sure you thank staff for taking the time to listen to your comments.

If you get a recording, please leave a message.

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.

Unified Vapor Battle Update: Dec 20

Unified Vapor Battle Update: Dec 20

FROM THE VTA BOARD OF DIRECTORS on the Unified Vapor Battle Update: Dec 20

On December 11, 2017, VTA along with the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (“CASAA”), the American Vaping Association (“AVA”), and the Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association (“SFATA”), issued our Unified Front Letter to the vapor industry advising that the time was close to step up and support our call to action to change the predicate date, as part of the pending FY 2018 Appropriations process.

That same day, the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (“AEMSA”) announced that it had taken a remarkable unilateral action that directly conflicted with the will of the overwhelming majority of the vapor industry.  Specifically, AEMSA announced that it sent a letter to House and Senate leaders in the United States Congress, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, directly attacking a legitimate and important legislative strategy that VTA and every other advocacy organization has been pursuing for the past three years.  In so doing, AEMSA purported to speak on behalf of the entire vapor industry in declaring to Congressional leaders that it would be a mistake to change the predicate date, and claiming that our industry doesn’t need additional short-term relief.  In sending their letter, AEMSA demonstrated a complete disregard of the powerful Members of Congress who have graciously stepped forward to champion our industry.

In an effort to mitigate whatever damage AEMSA’s letter may have caused, we were pleased send a Unified Vapor industry letter, from VTA, AVA, CASAA and SFATA, encouraging our Congressional leaders to do the right thing and change the predicate date.  Here are examples of the Unified Vapor Letter (House) and the Unified Vapor Letter (Senate) that VTA’s team delivered to the Hill on December 14, 2017.

Individuals and groups may disagree on policy and strategy.  However, nothing gives one group license to undermine years of important relationship building and issue building in Congress simply because it has a “strong belief” in another approach.  Similarly, nothing justifies one group tearing down a legitimate legislative strategy that could be enormously beneficial to small and mid-sized companies right now, based on the notion that they have a better idea and might be able to secure something better at some point in the distant future.

So, if someone tells you their way is better, if they promise a “permanent” fix, if they tell you that they can solve your entire problem, or tell you that they are going to take vapor out of the Tobacco Control Act, that’s great.  Just make sure you ask all the hard questions like, what is the strategy, who is the team that will execute it, how are you going to generate support in the House and Senate, and where are the funds coming from to make it happen? Absent answers to these questions, you are just being offered ideas and words.

To that end, our fights are not ideological and not hypothetical.  They are real, they are present, and the clock is ticking.  Effective advocacy requires that we engage in strategies that can bring relief to our industry, engage in battles that are winnable, and that we build on prior success.  Our industry does not have the luxury of hope. We are in a pitched battle and if we are repeatedly distracted from singularly focusing on our real enemies, we’ll wake up one day with a basket full of beliefs but no believers in government.

As we look forward to another year, we invite all of you to join our continuing efforts to level the playing field and secure a bright future for the vapor industry in the U.S. by working simultaneously with Congress and the Administration.  For more information on why this one prong of our multi-pronged strategy is important to small, mid-sized and large companies alike, please read our Changing the Predicate Date Summary and FAQ.

Thank you,

VTA Board of Directors

Note from J.G. at VapeSling LLC:

This vape news Article brought to you by VapeSling® LLC subscription with the VTA.

This and all groups who continue the community VapeFight will be supported past, present and future by VSLLC. All Vapers and Vape Industry want is fair regulations. Presently, the FDA regulations have been written in a aggressive and unfair manner. The requirement for PMTA has no merit in it’s application, rather for the industry to collapse in financial burden. All items introduced should face a regulatory means for safety and consumption. The comparison would be Ketchup and Fancy Ketchup: 1 Ketchup PMTA is good for all variations in flavor. Why not with Vape E-liquid?

Although this CR will not contain changes to the appropriations language that addresses vapor products regulation, it is an important opportunity to send a message to Congress that we are still here and that predicate date change language must be included in the 2018 budget.

Sending this message to Congress is even more important now in the wake of rogue efforts by some in the industry who don’t understand the need to modernize the 2007 predicate date. Their fundamental misunderstanding of the Cole-Bishop language in the appropriations bill (Sec. 753) is creating confusion among our supporters and eroding relationships that have taken years to build.

Help us show Congress that we are unified in our support for changing the predicate date to August 8th, 2016 and that we are in favor of reasonable regulation that preserves consumer choice.

Thank you & Happy Holidays!

From CASAA president, Alex Clark:

In 2013, when I made the switch from smoking to vaping, I took the first $80 I didn’t spend on a carton of cigarettes and made a donation to CASAA. Today, I’ve donated a similar amount through #VapesGiving that I’ve saved by not smoking this week.

Even though #VapesGiving is focused on encouraging industry stakeholders to step up to the plate (i.e., “Manufacturer & Distributor Challenge”), anyone can contribute. As an added incentive, Naked 100 is matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $190,000.

That means your contribution will be DOUBLED!

$5 = $10  |  $25 = $50  |  $50 = $100!

Every little bit makes a huge difference for CASAA, AVA, and the more than 20 state association participating in the VapesGiving event. If everyone who receives this email contributes just $2 through #VapesGiving, we can raise more than a quarter-million dollars for advocacy efforts across the country!

Please join me by contributing even the one or two dollars you saved today by not smoking.

Staples, MN – Stop an Indoor Vaping Ban!

Posted 12.11.17

 

UNITED FRONT

Today, leaders of the vapor community came together to present a unified front on the next steps for moving our agenda forward in Washington, D.C.  The Unity Letter, signed by the leaders of the American Vaping Association, the Consumers for Smoke-free Alternatives Association, the Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association and the Vapor Technology Association asks every member of the vapor industry and broader community to get ready to act!

“December 11, 2017

Dear Members of the Vapor Community:

We write you today as a united front because the vapor industry is under attack and the future remains uncertain. We are all focused on the critical mission of making sure that Americans will continue to have access to the full range of vapor products that millions are using to quit smoking and improve our lives. We need your help to achieve this mission. 

We all agree that there are short term and long term policy changes that must be made to ensure a robust vapor product industry in this country, but we are focused today on a near term step – Changing the “Predicate Date” in Congress – which will allow all products on the market before 8/8/2016 to stay on the market and remain available to consumers. 

The US House of Representatives has passed an appropriations bill which contains language that would modernize the 2007 predicate date for products newly deemed to be tobacco. But the Senate has not included similar language in its version of the bill. These two conflicting pieces of legislation will be negotiated in Congress in the near future, and we are going to need EVERYONE to weigh in!

In the coming days and weeks, we will be reaching out to our respective members with additional opportunities and guidance on how you can engage with your two Senators and your Representative and urge them to modernize the predicate date for vapor products. We hope that when we call on you, you will take a few minutes to ACT to save the vapor industry.

Thank you!”

Robbinsdale, MN – Take Action to oppose a Tobacco (and #vapor) 21 law!

Posted 9.21.17

This summer, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new plan for vape regulations that extended some compliance deadlines.

However, not all deadlines were extended! There is a big FDA deadline nine (9) days from now (September 30th) for all e-liquid and device manufacturers to register their establishments and provide a complete listing of products. Failure to comply with this registration and product listing could result in unregistered products being pulled from the shelves. For more information, follow this link to FDA Deadline Info.

And as these deadlines approach, we still need to let Congress know that we support a common sense solution in H.R. 1136, the FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2017.

Even if you have already reached out to your Members of Congress regarding this issue, this would be a great time to reinforce your previous message! Visit the Stop The Vape Ban site now and let your Members of Congress know TODAY how important this issue is to you by sending an email, making a phone call and tweeting.  We’ve made it easy for you to act.
