Last chance for comments: FDA probe on vaping ban ends in only 2 weeks!

Posted by

If you haven’t yet commented on the FDA probe seeking public input regarding a possible vaping ban on flavored e-liquids, then what are you waiting for? The 90-day probe officially ends on June 19, about two short weeks away. Anyone can leave a comment, and you can even leave multiple responses, if you like. The time to get active in the vaping community has never been more urgent.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration led by Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is looking for insights regarding three specific areas. Vapers can comment by sharing personal stories or reference scientific research that is decidedly pro-vaping. Searching through this blog will provide several options. Commenters can even talk about government funded statistics reports like that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showing that national smoking rates are plummeting each and every year.

The FDA probe is looking for vaping enthusiasts

But vaper beware. Vaping enthusiasts will not be the only ones leaving comments on the FDA probe. There will be hundreds if not thousands of negative, anti-vaping comments left by the vaping haters, too. However, the designers of the FDA probe are looking for public insights into three very specific areas. And they all deal with vaping, which means that non-vapers will have a difficult time in responding appropriately. The three areas include:

1.  How have flavored e-liquids helped the vaping community to quit smoking?

2.  How have flavored e-liquids helped the vaping community to quit using other forms of tobacco, like snuff, cigars, and piping tobacco?

3.  How many vapers engage in dual use? And if you do, how often do you smoke and/or vape?

According to the FDA announcement of March 20, anyone can comment. You don’t have to be an elected official, a scientific genius, or a high-profile member of a vaping advocacy group. The FDA wants to hear from everyone, and the public health agency even allows comments to be received electronically or snail mail – as long as your letter is postmarked by June 19.

“You may submit comments as follows. Please note that late, untimely filed comments will not be considered. Electronic comments must be submitted on or before June 19, 2018. The https://www.regulations.gov electronic filing system will accept comments until midnight Eastern Time at the end of June 19, 2018. Comments received by mail/hand delivery/courier (for written/paper submissions) will be considered timely if they are postmarked or the delivery service acceptance receipt is on or before that date.”

Responding to the FDA probe online using the above link only takes a few minutes. You don’t have to write a lengthy response either. Just a few short sentences expressing how flavored e-liquids have kept you engaged in vaping while eliminating or reducing your cigarette smoking. Please take a few minutes to leave a positively pro-vaping pontification! Help us win the War on Vaping before it’s too late!
