Stop the Ban

Flavored electronic cigarettes are NOT the same as traditional cigarettes. Finally, traditional smokers have a great alternative to stop smoking and the government wants to take it away. We cannot and will not let this happen. They claim because of the flavors that so many of us adults enjoy that these are targeted to for children. Nothing can be further from the truth. STOP the government lies. First it will be New York then it will be other states. 

 

Flavored electronic cigarettes have stopped millions from smoking traditional cancer causing cigarettes. They are extremely less harmful to the user and people around us. The government will tell you that these products have no meaningful research therefore they are deemed unsafe. This is a lie. I was a traditional tobacco smoker for 25 years. I tried many time to quit and never could. Since the day the flavored e-cig entered my life, over a year ago, I have never smoked another traditional tobacco cigarette. I am just one of millions. Please STOP the lies and let the government know we will be heard.

Stop the Ban of flavored electronic cigarettes.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Here we go again. Big Greedy Tobacco companies trying their best to kill the little guy, (literally) by trying to get a product that has been proven to help people stop smoking banned by the FDA. I wonder who the FDA is going to side with? The FDA has come out with tons of lies about the e-cigarette issues. They lied about non existent toxins not in e-cigarette juices but mentioned nothing about the real hundreds of life threatening toxins in real cigarettes. They lied when they said there are no statistics or results of any testing done on them and there have been many research papers done on them but the problem for the FDA and the big Tobacco companies is this, every study research papers and testings all prove that e-cigarettes are NOT harmful nor is the cloud of vapor is just that, water vapor and not smoke therefore not harmful to anyone. This product has saved many lives and still goes on to do this as we speak. I am 64 yrs old and I had smoked for 47yrs. I tried every single thing that came out on the market and big drug companies and absolutely nothing worked. I can honestly say that when I first heard about these I thought, what the heck, I've tried everything else so I purchased one. The day I vaped my first e-cig was the last day I smoked a real cigarette. We have to stay on top of the big government greedy pigs and take a stand. Here

There is not enough room here to fully vent so all I am going to say is, don't stand by and watch as each state sides with big tobacco companies and the FDA. TAKE A STAND

      Quit a 30 year cigarette addiction 7 months ago thanks to vaping. The flavours are crucial to the process. I now abhor any flavour that suggests tobacco and love fruit flavours. The attraction to kids argument could be equally be applied to lots of other products from alcohol to aerosols but nobody's suggesting they be banned?! Don't do this. E cigs are saving lives.
