Say NO to the Flavor Ban for E-cigarettes



I don't care what your political affiliation is today, as adults who vape, we are all on the same side.  It's imperative that you call the White House today and tell President Trump that we are against the banning of flavors in vaping products.  Call (202) 456-1111 and if you can't get through, continue trying until you can.  Adults have the right to choose their smoking cessation tool and the government has no right to deny us that right.  After you call, write the White House as well here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/  we need to send a strong message to Washington that we oppose this flavor ban.

The facts so far as I know them at the moment are thus.  Black Market vendors (not legal shops that sell nicotine vaping products) were selling products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, a psychoactive component of the marijuana plant).  While they are calling this vaping, the only truth in that is that people were using devices meant for vaping to do illegal (of if THC is legal in your area, legal) drugs.  That has zero to do with flavors so this ban has no merit, and for the vast majority of us that vape without using illegal (or legal in your area) drugs no merit whatsoever.  The following is from the FDA website:


  • Many of the samples tested by states or by the FDA as part of this ongoing investigation have been identified as vaping products containing THC, and further, most of those samples with THC tested also contained significant amounts of vitamin E acetate.
  • Vitamin E acetate is a substance present in topical consumer products or dietary supplements, but data are limited about its effects after inhalation.
  • While the FDA does not have enough data presently to conclude that vitamin E acetate is the cause of the lung illness in these cases, the agency believes it is prudent to avoid inhaling this substance.
I have vaped exclusively since 2015 after a COPD diagnosis, and have only had positive results since I stopped smoking.  I find this a GROSS OVERREACH of power and will fight until my dying breath to make sure this ban doesn't happen.
