---LET'S TALK ABOUT THE NEW FDA ECIG REGS
 

If you haven't done this yet, get over to CASAA and do it. HR 2058
**HR 2058 - Changes the predicate date so all vaping products remain on the market.
 ---Complete list of representatives that supported HR 2058.

What you need to do now on a personal level.
1) Do everything the Advocacy groups tell you to do.
2) Don't get into a rivalry match over whose ideas are the best. Every single person, every Advocacy group, every forum (especially the two main ones). All social media needs to do all they can to fight this battle.
Vaping Underground is one of them and is United States based.
There are many forums. Too many to list but another United States forum and where I (jj2) hang out. VapingBlips.
3) Support (donate) to help the legal action that is going to happen in the courts. This is going to be an expensive process but if we all chip in just a little it will happen!!!
4)
Drama needs to stop.
5) If you have a B&M near you then inquire if they know what is going on and ask if they are involved in Advocacy.
6) IMPORTANT Legislative - get your elected representatives on our side.

7)
IMPORTANT Public opinion - we need to support A Billion Lives. This film has the possibility of opening non-vapers eyes to this industry and the attacks we've been fighting for years. If we get the public on our side, it will be much easier to get legislators on our side.

A big part of this problem is that almost half of the American people have no idea what is going on. Or, because of the propaganda that has been slung around, they just don't know the truth.
Start talking to people outside of the vaping community (don't preach).
Contact talk show hosts and urge them to have Aaron from A Billion Lives on the show.

This is sort of a cut off point. Pre FDA deeming regulations. I moved a lot of information or deleted the useless so the below is not organized but I decided to leave this material here. A lot is still pertinent or just a reference to what has happened in the past.
________________________________________________________________________
For the bigger part of this, if I had to explain it, it would be just a matter of my opinion, so I have gathered and organized links to information. In the end, you get an idea what the vaping community has had to fight against, and how government and other anti-vaping activists have been far from honest in the battle against vaping. To get you started here is a couple of links about vaping. Here and Here
Anything that you see underlined is a link.

Presenting more for full understanding.

2016
Big Pharma Scrambles As E-Cigs Become Most Popular Way To Quit
 

As you see the fight is not over yet and this quote should be a wake up call to the anti activist.
Made when Sedgwick County allowed vaping inside public buildings
"With literally millions of people dying over a 10-year period of cigarettes, there's not been a single person who's died of using e-cigarettes in that group that we can find," said Sedgwick County Commissioner Jim Howel

HR 2058 is the chance for government on the federal level to redeem itself by showing that they care about people more than they care about Big Business and keeping the powerful happy. Show that greed does not always win.
This goes for the FDA too as they define the rules and regulations for vaping. We all want them for our safety as well as for others but only time will tell just how authoritarian they intend to be. Vaping should be allowed the freedom to grow. Vaping is what will finally put inhaling tobacco in the grave where it belongs instead of smokers.

For those who need to catch up on vaping's history then watch A Billion Lives when it comes out. You will see that vaping has not had an easy road. Or take the time to get through the information below. Or both. I'm sure the film will do a better job than I have.

Until then keep in mind that at least some have realized that vaping IS NOT smoking. Also keep in mind that Zeller did this article and then set out to destroy vaping. When it comes to him its "Two Faces Have I"
FDA's Zeller: Let's Reframe Debate to Focus on Nicotine

Even if Federal government gets the grandfather date changed there is still a lot to accomplish. Also the vaping community needs to deal with State and City governments. They are already implementing unfair bans and some are going after the money!!!
Vaping (people's lives!!!) is not to be used for the quick fix to their budget problems.

Since this may be a new era in vaping, I'm sort of going to restart things so for those who are looking for studies made on vaping.

Links that post date 'Thomas Cole amendment' that will change the Grandfather date.
FDA funded study shows e-cigarettes are more beneficial than harmful

____________________________________________________________
Informational links that preceded the House passing HR 2058.
I'm hoping that reason plays out here and it is now a new beginning.
Many of these are still relevant so please take the time to go through it!
Even if and when they are not they will be left here or I'll create an archive.

_________________________________________________________________
---Could FDA E-Cigarette Regulations Help More People Quit Smoking? This gives you something of an idea of what is going on from both sides. Please notice that a kid's picture is used in this article. Further down you will see a couple links that touches on this subject, but for now, in my seven years of advocacy for vaping on the Internet and in real life, I know of one kid (if you can actually call a 19/20 year old a kid that is in the armed services) that vapes.

Vaping has gone through a lot of changes over the years and during its growth it's collected some enemies. Some are now seeing the truth about vaping.
---Dragon Slayers
 "Adjunct professor of law at the University of Ottowa and special lecturer with the division of epidemiology and public health at the University of Nottingham, David Sweanor spent more than 30 years fighting tobacco. He was even a pivotal force in persuading the Canadian government to introduce bans on cigarette advertising, higher taxes and smoke-free public places.
But now, Sweanor has split from many in the anti-smoking movement because he supports e-cigarettes."
{Besides leaving out the influence of Big Pharmacy and Big Tobacco, he made a good point.}

Even some of our representatives are seeing the light.
---Iowa Attorney General Takes a Pro-Vape Stance In Public Statement
---Sedgwick County to allow vaping inside public buildings
"With literally millions of people dying over a 10-year period of cigarettes, there's not been a single person who's died of using e-cigarettes in that group that we can find," said Sedgwick County Commissioner Jim Howel

To get somewhat of a grasp of what the vaping community has had to fight watch this video. To make the connection clearer, I will give you some background information. I started to vape in 2009. At that time, shipments from overseas were being seized. This included individual orders and vendors who purchased supplies. Most everyone was afraid to fight if their order was seized. So ceased they were. And then it was down to dealing with a government that was a brick wall, so there was no getting your property returned to you. Then there was the threat that government could actually throw in heavy fines. Some even feared incarceration.
The Video
1.  Police raids
2.  Confiscation of goods
3.  Looming requirement of regulations.
4.  Requiring FDA approval for each individual product which will cost business owners thousands of dollar.
Vaping
1.  Ceasing products before Federal judge ruled against the FDA
2.  Looming requirement of regulations.
3.  Requiring FDA approval for each individual product which will cost business owners thousands of dollar....if not millions.
The Video

After you watch it, you will see that this is Take Two for many anti-vaping activists, or the current activists have learned from this. Vaping is fighting a bigger battle than what that video is about because the vaping battle involves more than a corrupt FDA and Big Pharmacy.
Big Tobacco is involved. Federal, State, and City governments are in knee deep because of sin taxes.

---EPA & FDA: Vapor Harmless to Children
---Cornell Study Finds Raising The Vaping Age Actually Increases Teen Smoking Accusations that vaping is the gateway for minors to take up smoking, completely ignoring the drop in rates of teens that take up smoking or those teens that are smokers.
---Chantix
The FDA approved the drug in 2006. In 2006 Hon Lik released his smoking alternative to the international public. The drug that you see commercials on daily encouraging smokers to quit with it's success rate while vaping/e-cigarettes are maligned, taxed, restricted, and are actually on the verge of being all but banned or regulated out of existence by the FDA and other regulatory agencies worldwide.
Scandals hit the news whenever there is a negative e-cigarette event, even if it is minor. Not so with Chantix. The FDA approved drug kills and/or destroys lives and has done much more harm than e-cigarettes.
{Warning this video is shocking and not for the faint of heart. This man was on  Chantix at the time he attacked and killed his son. Chantix has been linked to mental health issues, suicide and homicide.
---Vaping. News articles hint that Chantix and products like patches, gum, and lozenges is why smoking rates have dropped so drastically among adults. Vaping deserves the credit for most of the drop.

MISINFORMATION/PROPAGANDA
“No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance.”

The fight continues. In that fight they have used lies and mistruths and over time, many of those have been proven false. Basically right now, the big anti-vaping thing being used is the children and even that is wearing thin or just being exposed as misinformation too.

At no time am I going to say that vaping is 100% safe. Breathing nothing but oxygen is 100% safe, but face it, no one has been breathing 100% pure air in ages. Also, for those who shake their head about the people who vape and their addiction to nicotine.
---BBC -Trust Me I'm A Doctor -
1. Caffeine is the kissing cousin to nicotine. So accepting one as okay and not the other is more than a bit hypocritical.
2. Many vapers do not even use nicotine. They vape for the pleasure. Much like those who indulge in their favorite indulgence.
 

There is a lot of information about vaping and there is no way for me to collect it all because of so much propaganda to dig through. I encourage you to search for yourself. Just remember for the last seven year that I've been around, the mistruth has outnumbered the truth. Unfortunately, most of us, vapers or not, already know the game that the rich, powerful, and greedy play.

For an example States are legalizing marijuana. Yeah I will give you a minute to collect yourself because I'm sure you know what is coming. Yep the anti vaping activist are using it as yet another way to attack vaping.

Our representatives have made it legal. It's available to the public in many States and more will follow. Just recently it was condemned because it can be used by teens in an e-cig delivery device. And, gasp, in public! In liquid form it could be added to anything. If it can be added to e liquid it can be added to any drink. It can be added to many foods. Whether you make it or buy it. Bakery items. Candy.
Just imagine how fast and easy it would be pop in a piece of candy in your mouth and no one would be the wiser.
Singling out vaping is probably the best example utterly ridicules.
Really, do they think we are so stupid as to accept this???
Public vaping of marijuana fueled Legislature’s new e-cigarette rules
