Support Cigarette Smoking Reduction and Electronic Vapor Alternatives Act of 2017
This petition had 689 supporters
We want our representatives in the US Congress and US Senate to take this issue seriously and pass this bill introduced by Congressman Duncan Hunter.
The Bill Would replace current FDA Deeming Regulations and do the following
1.Vaping products will be removed from the definition of “tobacco” that is currently identified in the Tobacco Control Act.
2.As a result, the need for vaping manufacturers to undergo the expensive and time-consuming PMTA process will be eliminated and replaced with new, and less costly, approval protocols yet to be defined.
An independent regulatory framework separate from Big Tobacco products will be established.
3.New standards for e-liquid and vaping technology manufacturing will also be put into place with special attention to battery safety, short circuit protection capabilities, and discharge monitoring (It is this section of the bill that is perhaps causing the most pushback).
4.Serial and lot number tracking for vaping technology will also be put into place.
New vaping regulations will be enacted with a special emphasis on vaping as a tool for harm reduction for the purposes of quitting smoking.
5.The name of the Center for Tobacco Products of the FDA (currently headed by anti-vaping protagonist Mitch Zeller) will be changed to the Center for Tobacco Products and Harm Reduction.
6.The bill would also authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services (Currently Tom Price) to undertake a detailed assessment of comparative risks associated with smoking vs. vaping vs. other nicotine replacement therapies.
Please Sign this Petition to let our representatives to know were serious and want the outdated laws changed immediately!.
