Join the Fight for Vaping Products with SmokeStik and CASAA Before it’s too Late
Electronic cigarettes are in danger of being removed from the open marketplace, making it much more difficult for consumers to purchase vaping products across the country. If nothing is done, the Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (TCA) could effectively eliminate 99.9% of currently operating electronic cigarette companies. This would be a crippling blow for the ecig industry and vaping enthusiasts everywhere, but there is still time to prevent this from happening. Join the SmokeStik ULTRA team in this battle for our freedom to vape, and ensure that the most successful smoking cessation product ever created remains accessible to all.
The Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act could ironically cripple an industry that has helped countless former smokers quit. The language of the TCA bill categorizes e-cigs as “tobacco products” and would thus be subjected to the same extreme regulations as traditional cigarettes. Producers of e-cigs would then be forced to submit a Premarket Tobacco Application in order to operate, which is a highly expensive and time-consuming process. Filing this series of documents is so expensive and difficult that the FDA predicts only 25 will be submitted in total, just a minute fraction of the industry.

The TCA threatens to decimate the electronic cigarette industry, which could tragically shift a lot of power back into the hands of big tobacco while severely curtailing vape culture in the United States. So what can we do to stop it?
Urging Elected Officials to Change the “Grandfather Date” for Electronic Cigarettes
You can still take action and help prevent ecigs from being removed from the market, but time is quickly running out. There is a “grandfather date” included in the TCA, which currently allows vaping products created before February 15, 2007 to be exempt from such regulations. However, there is a movement to change this date to April 25, 2014, which could potentially save hundreds of electronic cigarette businesses and vaping products.
To encourage lawmakers to support the extended grandfather date, the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) has issued a call to action with a pre-made letter you can send to local and state representatives with ease. This process only takes about two minutes of your time, and could be the difference we need to win this fight.
If you love vaping, the time to act is now. Stand up, speak out, and change the future of vaping today.
