Prevent the FDA from regulating or banning the sale and use of electronic cigarettes, accessories and associated liquids.
The FDA has repeatedly stated its intent to propose a “deeming” regulation to apply Chapter IX of the FSPTCA to e-cigarettes. But Sections 905 and 910 would ban all e-cigarettes, and other provisions of Chapter IX would also decimate the e-cigarette industry, protect cigarette markets and otherwise threaten public health. The FDA should NOT propose or approve any regulation that would deny cigarette smokers legal or affordable access to less hazardous smokefree alternatives. ~ Bill Godshall
E-cigarettes and associated accessories and liquids are less hazardous than cigarettes and can reduce the risks of smoking. With the use of these devices millions have successfully reduced the use of cigarettes. Don’t let the FDA deny us access to these alternatives to smoking.

If the SmokeStik has improved the quality of your life and your families life you could be at risk of losing the right to use and/or purchase it. Get your friends and family to sign this as well! Smoking does not just harm the person doing it and the FDA KNOWS that. The electronic cigarette industry understands the need for further testing and we are aware of the need for health and safety regulations. We also recognize the fact that ecigs might not be a cessation device. But we ARE harm reduction and should not be banned.
