Advocacy organisations around the US are united in their support of common sense regulations for the vaping industry and stand together against the FDA's deeming rule, which will ban 99% of all vapor products within two years.
This includes the Cole Bishop amendment, supported by the Vapor Technology Association, which will move the date after which new products cannot be sold without a costly premarket authorization which most vapor product companies will not be able to afford.
For this to succeed, Congressmen and women need to know how important this is to you. That's why VTA would love for you to take part in the #wearevapor campaign.
