Congress: Prevent the FDA from placing harsh restrictions on e-cigarettes or e-liquid

These products are a safer alternative to smoking and the FDA has spread false and misleading information about their safety. For example, the FDA has compared e-liquid, which consists of Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, flavoring, and nicotine to automotive anti freeze. The mixture is heated and vaporizes at a low temperature into a steam that satisfies smokers without all of the tars, metals, and pesticides that are found in the smoke of government approved cigarettes. The FDA has a quit or die mentality that results in death for smokers. In fact, it would be better if Congress ordered the FDA to adopt a strict hands-off policy to the FDA with regards to e-cigarettes and let States and municipalities develop their own strategies since the FDA has so far not acted in good faith, as an honest broker, or a science based agency, on behalf of the millions of smokers in the US. It has let them down and Congress should order them to step back.
