FDA regulation of e-cigarettes inevitable.

Posted April 27th, 2011 by vaporstation

The good news is electronic cigarettes can not be banned as they have just received "legal" classification as a tobacco product. On the other hand, I've been in this business for well over 3 years and have followed the industry closely through online vaping forums, customer feedback, press releases, court dockets, phony FDA studies, legitimate industry studies, and, surprisingly, somewhat balanced media coverage, and not once has any evidence been produced that the products produced by this completely unregulated industry pose any significant danger to the health of electronic cigarette users (aside from the bogus 2009 FDA report*), and certainly not when compared to the risks of the inhalation of combusted tobacco.

Continued moar.

There is a certain breed of consumer who willingly purchases most, if not all, of their electronic cigarette hardware and liquid refills from the largely unregulated market of China. Most of these folks are fully aware of the risks associated with the purchase of goods from foreign, unregulated e-liquid producers, but that's their choice, and I respect it. For them, the low prices outweigh the risks involved. With the inevitable implementation of taxation in the near future, personal import and shipment of these products will be prohibited.... and another black market product will be born. And, of course, there are those who purchase from local vendors/suppliers/manufacturers who have reputations to uphold, have direct accountability and have at their hands the ability to offer a level of customer service foreign markets simply can't compete with. This market has regulated itself. 0 deaths in the unregulated and (mostly) untaxed e-cigarette industry since it's advent in 2005. Over 27,000,000 deaths in the heavily regulated and taxed tobacco industry since 2005. No evidence of long term affects separate from those of typical nicotine use. No carcinogens. No tar. No second-hand smoke. Government intervention in the market place negatively affects all parties. Except for the government. It will all be clear soon enough.

Description continued.

Nor has there been any evidence produced that coming regulations will in any way reduce the risks associated with the use of electronic cigarettes. In fact, with the inevitable increase in price for electronic cigarette products through the coming years and months, regulation and taxation will only further incentivize the continued use of combustible tobacco for many smokers who might otherwise switch to vaping were the industry unregulated.
