  • Vape is saved. Deeming dead?

    Vape is saved. Deeming dead?

    In a somewhat extraordinary and unexpected development Scott Gottlieb, the newly appointed head of FDA, has announced that the submission deadline for PMTAs is to be delayed until 2022.  This is a de-facto endorsement of the vaping industry and heads off the cataclysmic demise that was set in motion by the previous administration.  The grandfathering date from last year is not changed, so new products may not be introduced to the market, although it’s unclear what enforcement there is likely to be on that front.  This delay comes as part of a comprehensive anti-smoking plan which also involves the (controversial...

  • Nicopure and Right to be Smokefree coalition denied summary judgement

    Nicopure and Right to be Smokefree coalition denied summary judgement

    Case brought by key vaping industry players fails to overturn deeming regulation. In a setback for an industry fighting for its survival, D.C. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled against the e-liquids manufacture Nicopure Labs LLC and upheld the FDA’s rule regulating vapes as tobacco products last week. “In the Deeming Rule, the FDA simply announced that electronic cigarettes, or electronic nicotine delivery systems would be subject to the same set of rules and regulations that Congress had already put in place for conventional cigarettes,” she wrote in her opinion. The judge dismissed plaintiffs request for a summary judgement but...

  • UK Government embraces tobacco harm reduction (in all but name).

    UK Government embraces tobacco harm reduction (in all but name).

    The UK Government issued today its tobacco control plan entitled: “Towards a Smoke Free Future”. It’s a comprehensive review of anti-smoking policy objectives over the next five years and contains significant support for vapor innovation throughout. As Clive Bates has pointed out, this makes the UK Government the first in the world to adopt an official tobacco harm reduction agenda. The plan crystallizes the UK’s trajectory from almost prohibiting vapor products in 2010 to being the world’s most forward thinking and liberal on vape today. It goes further too underscoring that vaping in public places is not prohibited under smoke-free...

  • Sex, betrayal and box mods: when vaping met reality TV

    Sex, betrayal and box mods: when vaping met reality TV

    A British reality TV show where contestants engage in on-screen romances for the chance to win $65,000 has seen a vape invasion in recent days. While the show involves on screen sex scenes as the norm - this year one couple were filmed going at it live while another couple slept next to them - the British TV regulator Ofccom received far more complaints about contestants smoking than they did about the x-rated scene. Contestants were smoking so much that the British Lung Foundation, which campaigns against cigarette smoking in the UK, teamed up with a British vaping company to...

  • Vape Begone: San Francisco says goodbye to e-juice

    Vape Begone: San Francisco says goodbye to e-juice

    From April next year eliquid will be illegal to sell within the City of San Francisco. The Flavored Tobacco Sales Restriction Ordinance bans flavors in all tobacco products without exemption. Since the FDA’s deeming rule of last year legally confers “tobacco” status on vape, and since all eliquid is flavored, it will not be permissible to sell any vape juice when the rule comes into effect. Today, the BOS unanimously approved my legislation to ban the sale of flavored tobacco in San Francisco. #FocusOnFlavors #DoItForTheKids pic.twitter.com/rmNaOnVVhG — Malia Cohen (@MaliaCohen) June 21, 2017 Of course, this won’t stop San...

  • Vaping is the reason for massive decline in UK smoking

    Vaping is the reason for massive decline in UK smoking

    New data released today in the UK show that smoking has declined from 20.2% of the British adult population in 2010 to 15.8% last year. The rate of decline demonstrated in the ONS data is astonishing, especially between 2015 and 2016, which saw the second biggest annual drop in smoking in 40 years. Vaping is almost certainly responsible for this, with an estimated 1.5 million vapers in the UK according to ASH UK. The UK Centre for Alcohol and Tobacco Studies press office said: “Today’s new figures indicate UK smoking is falling faster than would be expected from conventional tobacco...

  • Save vaping. Last chance. 

    Save vaping. Last chance. 

    Please contact your representative and senators today:  “Cole-Bishop” needs a push. If you’re new to vaping, or even a relatively experienced vaper you might be unaware of just how many times vape has nearly been prohibited over the last 10 years, both in the US and internationally. Vape survives today only because of the actions of thousands of people like you who step up when asked. Today is one of those days and CASAA has issued a call to action: Call and urge your Senators and Representative to support Cole-Bishop's inclusion in the 2017 budget! It's incredibly easy to find...

  • New Zealand un-bans vaping, says it's good for public health

    New Zealand un-bans vaping, says it's good for public health

    The government of the islands of New Zealand - a country of 5 million people off the coast of Australia, has reversed its ban on nicotine-containing vape juice. In a bold move, the New Zealand government also decided to exempt nicotine containing liquids from the strong tobacco control laws in New Zealand - a country where cigarettes are sold in plain packages with some of the highest excise taxes in the world. "That's an important thing", said New Zealand Health Minister Nicky Wagner, "so that when a smoker goes into the dairy, he or she will see cigarettes at a very...

  • Draft law to save vaping gathers steam in Congress

    Draft law to save vaping gathers steam in Congress

    A new bill has been introduced in Congress which, if passed, will prevent the FDA from banning 99.9% vapor products next year.  The cross-party draft law - known as the FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2017  - was tabled Thursday by Tom Cole (R-OK) and Sandford Bishop (D-GA) and is now gaining traction in Washington. If the bill passes it will move what is known as the "predicate date" for vapor products; all those that were on the market on 8 August 2016 would not now be subjected to a regulatory system so overbearing it amounts to a ban due...

  • Yes, Apple just banned vaping, but no, Apple is not making a vape!

    Yes, Apple just banned vaping, but no, Apple is not making a vape!

    As reported widely last week, Apple has told a British vaping website, Planet of the Vapes, that no more apps or app updates relating to vape will be allowed on the App Store. Apple is known for its opacity when it comes to its business decisions, so don’t expect any explanation or justification for this. Around the same time, news broke that Apple has patented a “vaporizer”. You can look at this patent elsewhere. This led many people to put two and two together and impugn a highly anti-competitive motive: Apple bans vape apps then moves in with its own...
