FDA Responds To Vapor Lawsuits


Earlier this year the FDA released the final deeming regs which is already starting to cripple the vaping industry. Even though most of the new regulations won't take full effect for two years, vape shop owners and manufacturers everywhere are closing their doors to avoid jumping through all the hoops and paying the outrageous fees to stay in the market. 

It didn't take long for a few lawsuits to be filed against the FDA. At one point there were over nine groups with lawsuits filed. Several of the lawsuits were recently ordered to be consolidated by a federal judge. Nicopure labs and The Right to be Smoke-Free Coalition are now fighting together under one umbrella and this is the FDA's 101 page response to the case.

If you don't have the time to read through this short novel here's how it reads:

  • They claim that e-liquid has dangerous compounds in it
  • Mods are exploding in people's faces
  • Nicotine is the most addicted substance known to man
  • The FDA has a lot of money to throw at lawsuits
  • The FDA can be extremely smug when it comes to dealing with the vaping industry

To those of us who have read (and lived) through all the vaping success stories, this response comes off as more of a fear mongering tactic and misinformation campaign for the general public to consume. There isn't really a whole lot of fact based information to justify such a harsh plan to wipe out an entire industry.

If this case does see the light of day in court, it's going to be an uphill battle for us just clearing up all the unjust claims that the FDA has made to the public. What are your thoughts on the FDA's response? Shoot us a comment below and let your voice be heard!

The first claim is false about eliquids are dangerous there is PGA, VG, Flavor and option of Nicotine. The second statement is only true because of unsafe battery usage. An experienced vapor knows safe battery usage and the vape shops are able to explain that when selling batteries to the public. As far as Nicotine being the most addictive known to man is also false because Caffeine is just as addictive as Nicotine but the FDA is not after that. The only reason the FDA is coming down on the industry is because of how much money Big Tobacco is losing from people that are quiting and starting to Vape.

The fact is vaping has lost tax money to big tobacco the FDA could care less about the health of the American people , vaping stopped me from a smoking habit of over forty years, sad time for many people who will never get off cigarettes now.

- First claim is completely false. Vliquid has PG, VG, flavoring and an option for nicotine.
- Mods used correctly do not explode. Homes are set on fire by smokers falling asleep.
- Nicotine isn’t an addictive compound without the MAOI’s from tobacco.
FDA Tobacco needs to be held in contempt for not telling the truth under oath.
