  • Tobacco Stocks Rise as FDA Threatens to Pull Vape Products 

    Tobacco Stocks Rise as FDA Threatens to Pull Vape Products 

    Shares in tobacco companies surged yesterday after the FDA threatened to pull flavored e-cigarette products from shelves in 60 days if “widespread” teen use isn’t tackled. Altria shares rose more than 6% in their best day since November 2008 while Philip Morris International shares increased by around 3% and British American Tobacco stocks increased almost 6%. The increase came after the FDA announced that it was ordering the five largest e-cigarette manufacturers to submit plans on how they will prevent teens from using their products. JUUL, Vuse, MarkTen, Blu E-cigs and Logic will have 60 days to respond to the...

  • FDA Flavor Ban Site Spammed with 255,000 Fake Comments

    FDA Flavor Ban Site Spammed with 255,000 Fake Comments

    Anti-vaping spammers posted more than a quarter of a million comments on the FDA’s public flavor ban consultation in one weekend last month. It is reported that the online public forum was flooded with 255,000 fake comments in a single weekend, with almost every spam comment asking the FDA to ban e-liquid flavors. FDA sources described these fraudulent comments as “extraordinary” and “unprecedented”, according to Regulator Watch. Internet bots entered the quarter million comments between June 8 and June 11, before the FDA finally located the source of the comments and blocked four IP addresses used by the spammers. Most...

  • 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...

  • E-Cigarette Summit USA. Where was vape?

    E-Cigarette Summit USA. Where was vape?

    [author title="About the Author"] The inaugural US E-Cigarette Summit took place in Washington DC on Monday. Encouragingly, there does now finally appear to be a consensus amongst the tobacco control community: Smokers should be encouraged to use vaping products if they’ve been unable to quit using FDA approved stuff. To many in the vaping industry, this will appear to be missing the wood for the trees, but that’s just the nature of consensus. It’s a net positive, and could not have occurred even a year ago. But the vaping industry remains unrepresented in this discourse. Delegates at yesterday's Summit did...

  • 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...

  • 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...
