It’s been about three weeks since the FDA released their draconian vaping regulations. Are vaping vendors involved in this fight? While I certainly don’t want to paint the dozens of vendors with the same brush, I’m very disappointed. Lets begin by visiting this page which displays the number of vendors who have actually submitted letters requesting a longer… Read More »

FDA: Don’t Kill My Vaping Grandma!

May 19, 2014

The following video titled: “53 Year Smoker, Now Vaping – Jeannie Cox” is a must watch. It’s adorable, on topic, emotional, and relevant to our cause.

Vapers are wrestless?

May 10, 2014

I have received a couple of emails and noticed that some Vapers want to know when they can expect formal guidance, final analysis, and a call to action from CASAA and SFATA.
