The American vaping industry is under a constant state of attack from Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, the Democratic Party, and even anti-tobacco groups like the American Heart Association. The FDA deeming regulations put forth by the Obama Administration have still not yet been revoked, even though many vapers were hopefully optimistic that a Republican-controlled White House would lead to their immediate demise.
What can you do to help save vaping? Here are five easy ways that take only five minutes or less.
1. Tweet to FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb.
The new FDA Chief is decidedly more vape-friendly than his predecessor Robert Califf, but he is still under enormous political pressure to keep the FDA deeming regulations intact. Just a few weeks ago, Scott Gottlieb implemented a new ruling that delays until 2022 the requirement to adhere to the PMTA process that threatens to bankrupt thousands of vape shops. This delay is not a repeal. Why not send Mr. Gottlieb a tweet demanding more decisive action? His Twitter handle is @ScottGottliebMD.
2. Tweet to Donald J. Trump while you’re at it.
Everyone knows that the Tweeter-in-Chief simply loves to piss people off by tweet! Instead of engaging in all of the left-wing vs. right-wing conspiracy theories that are often the subject of the President’s Twitter feed, why not send him a strongly worded message of 140-charactors demanding that he repeal the FDA deeming regulations? The man absolutely hates government regulation of nearly all kinds. If he gets enough tweets about repealing the FDA deeming regulations, who knows what will happen? His Twitter handle is @realDonaldTrump.
3. Sign the Let’s Be Real San Francisco petition.
The city of San Francisco is attempting to ban the sales of all flavored e-liquids in the Bay area. If the bill passes, then the likelihood that vapers will see similar legislation appearing in their own back yards increases dramatically. California is often the first state in the Union to pass some of the most outrageous laws of the land. A new organization named Let’s Be Real San Francisco wants to have this law overturned. Even if you don’t live in the Bay Area, you can still sign their petition by clicking here.
4. Sign the petition to repeal the FDA deeming regulations.
If you haven’t signed the online petition to repeal the FDA deeming regulations, there is still time. It’s as easy as typing your name. Just CLICK HERE, and join the millions of vapers who are helping to win the War on Vaping.
5. Contact your members of Congress.
Don’t forget about House Speaker Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan ), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel (@SenateMajLdr ), and every other member of Congress. Ask them to repeal the FDA deeming regulations, or demand that they support The Cigarette Smoking Reduction and Electronic Vapor Alternatives Act or H.R.2194, an alternative bill by pro-vaping enthusiast Rep. Duncan Hunter. Thanks to the Internet, locating the contact information of your local government officials is just a few clicks away. Simply CLICK HERE, and then type in your zip code.
There are so many ways that you can help save the War on Vaping. These are just five easy ways that take only five minutes or less. If you feel particularly energetic, why not join one of the many pro-vaping advocacy groups in the county. The AVA (American Vaping Association), CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternatives Association), SFATA (Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association), the Right To Be Smoke Free Coalition, and Not Blowing Smoke are some of the most popular.
