Trump Video: Vapor Flavors Listening Session

VapeSling E-Cig Mod Holder Slings, American Made

November 22, 2019 Session Notes:

President Trump listened intently to groups on both sides.

  • Vapor 21, the law to restrict sales to 21 and older, was agreed on by all present at the meeting. This includes Vapor Industry and Anti Vapor/Flavor groups attending the meeting.
  • Vapor Opposition groups made their case on flavors, based on youth appeal and use. Weak cases were expressed without scientific basis, rather teen hear-say.
  • Pro Vapor groups used facts and scientific research for harm reduction. However, the opposition reminded and seeks to only ban flavors, not the devices, nor the industry. Unwittingly stated by anti flavor groups, and countered with “a flavor ban that removes every flavor excluding only tobacco flavor would indeed deal the Vape Shop industry a serious blow”. A statement was made that Vape shops would not survive selling Tobacco flavor only. This was met with little to no concerns by the meetings opposition, especially and surprisingly by Mitt Romney.
  • Mitt Romney was on hand for the Flavor Ban to be strictly tobacco. Menthol as well as Mint would fall into the banned flavors category. Mostly, Mitt was there to muddy the waters on any facts presented by Pro Vapor industry and .ORGs. The fact reversals blasted by Romney were so aggressive, that rebuttals was barely heard or expressed.
  • JUUL and Reynolds were there, of course. The BIG T dogs went along with every anti flavor suggestion, knowing that their billion$ can survive any product sales hit.

Trump, FDA and Flavors: Take Action Now!

CASAA

On Monday, November 4, or early in the week, we are anticipating an announcement from the Trump Administration regarding FDA guidance about sales of flavored vapor products. According to recent reports, this guidance is expected to go as far as banning every flavor other than tobacco and menthol. In spite of years of communications from consumers and meetings with industry stakeholders, it is clear that officials remain unknowledgeable about how the vapor industry functions and what customers need.

Two flavors will not sustain independent vapor retailers and
will unnecessarily make vaping less attractive
to people who want to switch away from smoking.


The White House needs to hear from adult vapers and anyone who loves a vaper! A flavor ban won’t protect our children, but it will kill their parents.

Tell President Trump to NOT Ban Flavors on Vapor Products

Send an email to the President with one click!

Attention
White House Switchboard: 202-456-1414

Send an email to the President with one click!

On behalf of almost 14,000 American vapor business owners, more than 87,000 American vapor workers, and the 13 million adult consumers they serve who use flavored vapor products, I am asking you NOT to implement a federal flavor ban on vapor products.

A ban on flavored vapor products will devastate more than 11,000 small businesses nationwide and result in tens of thousands of people laid off.  The Made in America flavored vapor industry is larger than concrete industry and larger than the iron and steel forging industry. The vapor industry has a total economic impact of $24 Billion on the U.S. economy – all of which is hanging in the balance as you consider this action which will wipe that out.  

The vast majority of vapers are adults who successfully quit (or are trying to quit) cigarettes with the assistance of vapor products by relying on a variety of flavor options like fruit flavors – but not tobacco flavor.   And, there is plenty of research and survey data that shows that flavors keep smokers from turning back to deadly cigarettes.

Send an email to the President with one click!

It is already illegal for teens to purchase vapor products. And, there are many other steps we can take to limit teen use of vapor products including stricter marketing standards and stronger enforcement of the laws already on the books.  But, banning these products for adults will only hurt the U.S. economy and send millions of adults back to smoking cigarettes or to the black market. Additionally, deadly combustible cigarettes will still be available on the open market and left untouched. 

Researchers say that flavored vapor products truly represent a safer alternative to cigarettes.

  • E-cigarettes are at least 95% safer than cigarettes according to the Royal College of Physicians.
  • In Feb. 2019 the New England Journal of Medicine published a study which concluded vapor products are twice as effective helping smokers quit than traditional cessation methods like nicotine gum or patch. 
  • Georgetown University public health experts conclude that switching to e-cigarettes would save between 1.6 and 6.6 million lives over the next 10 years.
  • The American Cancer Society’s Public Health Statement on Eliminating Combustible Tobacco Use in the United States stated, “switching to the exclusive use of e-cigarettes is preferable to continuing to smoke combustible products.”
  • There has been no indication that industry standard nicotine-containing vapor products are to blame for recent cases of lung illness. In fact, FDA investigators found that black market THC were likely the cause.

A flavor ban is a terrible idea that would be devastating to all the growing small businesses dedicated to helping their customers quit deadly cigarettes. Please consider these businesses and all Americans desperately trying to quit and change course. Please do NOT implement a federal flavor ban on vapor products.

Vaping Prohibition is On the Table in Congress!

CASAA

FROM CASAA:
While all eyes are on the White House this week, we are reminding members that several bills in Congress could do more harm to consumers and be enacted faster than FDA can take enforcement action against the vapor industry.

In July, a US District Court judge, Paul Grimm, produced a remedy order that requires the FDA to enforce the premarket tobacco application (PMTA) requirement starting in May of 2020. This effectively moves up this particular compliance deadline by more than a year. While a small handful of companies might be in a position to attempt compliance with this new deadline, the rest of the vapor industry is not.

Take Action – Send a Message!


Strict enforcement of this deadline will force most US manufacturers to shut down. Even though the FDA will retain enforcement discretion with regard to certain compliance deadlines on a case-by-case basis, it is not clear how (or even if) the agency will apply it. In other words, there is no guarantee that companies will be allowed to keep their products on the market.

At the same time, several bills are active in Congress that would undermine FDA’s authority over new tobacco products. These bills propose to raise taxes, ban flavors, limit online sales, and one bill even goes as far as requiring vapor products to be approved for market only as medical drugs/devices.

CASAA is asking our members to take action by sending a message to your federal lawmakers urging them to reject this legislation and prevent a massive underground market from taking the place of our current legal, regulated marketplace. We will start delivering your messages one week from now to coincide with a lobby day organized by the Vapor Technology Association.

Take Action – Send a Message!



The long version:

By way of background, In July, Judge Paul Grimm, US District Court District of Maryland, ruled that the FDA has until May 2020 to enforce the premarket tobacco application (PMTA) requirement for new tobacco and vapor products.

The initial compliance deadline for PMTA was August 8, 2018. But in July 2017, the FDA delayed the PMTA deadline to 2022–for non-combustible products–citing a need to give vapor manufacturers more time to prepare and submit meaningful applications that would be more likely to be accepted by the agency.

Within a year, the FDA changed course after reviewing national survey data showing a sharp uptick in youth use of vapor products. The updated guidance would require applications to market vapor products in flavors other than tobacco to be submitted and accepted by the FDA by August of 2021. Although never finalized, the draft guidance would have also limited sales of flavored vapor products to adult-only specialty vapor/tobacco stores.

In 2018, the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) sued the FDA with the goal of reinstating the original August 8, 2018 PMTA compliance deadline. Following an exchange of proposed remedy briefs by both parties, Judge Grimm ruled that FDA’s suggestion of no less than ten months from the date of the court’s decision would be necessary for companies to finalize and submit acceptable applications. Judge Grimm granted FDA’s request.

The ten-month deadline is one of four points detailed in Judge Grimm’s remedy order. The remaining provisions of the order are as follows:

  • New products for which applications have not been filed within this period shall be subject to FDA enforcement actions, in the FDA’s discretion;
  • New products for which applications have been timely filed may remain on the market without being subject to FDA enforcement actions for a period not to exceed one year from the date of application while FDA considers the application;
  • The FDA shall have the ability to exempt New Products from filing requirements for good cause on a case-by-case basis.

While the one-year “grace period” for a manufacturer to keep a product on the market during FDA’s review of their application is nothing new, the points regarding the agency’s enforcement discretion and ability to exempt new products from the filing requirements are significant.

It may be hard to believe, but FDA specifically asked the court to preserve the agency’s enforcement discretion citing negative consequences of a mass exodus from the vapor market and an extreme and sudden decrease in access to safer alternatives to smoking. The FDA expressed strong concern that such an event would cause thousands of people who vape to return to smoking.

Preserving FDA’s enforcement discretion is not a free pass for the vapor industry and consumers should be very concerned about what this remedy order means for our access to vapor shops, vapor products, and other resources. The FDA and Congress are still facing tremendous pressure from anti-nicotine activists to ban flavors, enact taxes on vapor products, ban online sales, and raise the purchase age to 21. Additionally, we are monitoring a budding movement by local governments in California to take matters into their own hands by requiring that a vapor company has a marketing order from the FDA in order to sell their product in their city.

Light Up The Switchboard At The Whitehouse!

CASAA
From Alex Clark of CASAA:
Yesterday, Donald Trump, along with HHS secretary Alex Azaar, announced that the administration would be banning all flavored vapor products from the market. The move is in response to early findings from the National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) that show the number of young people who vape has increased by 25% in 2019 (accompanied by a 28% decline in teen smoking).

The White House needs to hear from adult vapers and anyone who loves a vaper!

>>>Share this post!<<<   We know that people are scared and angry and we wish there were some hopeful words that we could offer to make things better, but this is just about as bad as we’ve seen it. We are facing a total favor ban on a massive, national scale, and such a measure will bolster state and local lawmakers to take similar action. While any enforcement action coming the FDA will likely take weeks or months, cities and states can move faster. We are also constantly facing waves of disinformation from officials who are supposed to be looking out for public health.

In the coming days and weeks, we will be working to provide you with up-to-date information and opportunities to connect with lawmakers. Some of you will probably need to save up for plane and bus tickets–whether your heading to D.C. or your state capitol. Everyone will need to share their stories, especially with people who are curious about switching to vaping instead of continuing to smoke.

But today, lets show the White House just how many people the administration is putting at risk. Light up the phones!
