Calling Presidential Attention To FDA Control Of Electronic Cigarettes

The White House’s We The People website has gained quite a lot of popularity in a relatively short time.  The premise is nice and simple: start a petition and 25,000 signatures guarantees a response.

This guarantee was even tested recently when a petition for the U.S. to construct a real Death Star (the planet-sized battle station from Star Wars) hit its necessary number of signatures.  The Obama administration actually handled the petition with good nature and provided a list of realistic reasons this wouldn’t be happening.  Good move in an age where the internet tides are quick to turn against anyone without a sense of humor.

In a more serious area, a petition has started asking the White House to keep the FDA from regulating or banning electronic cigarettes.  At the time of this post, the petition was already a 5th of the way to its goal.  I for one would be curious as to the response the administration might take to this petition.  Any level of research should return one thing: there needs to be more research before a decision can be made.

Granted, chemical products should be regulated to the extent necessary to maintain safe and clean standards for the companies involved.  It’s time e-liquids made in bathroom sinks make way for (affordable) sterilized environments.  Still, the FDA shouldn’t be able to impede the basic commerce of an industry no more dangerous than the others already out there (particularly tobacco cigarettes).

At the moment, the FDA looks to regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products or smoking cessation devices.  E-cigs are enough of a market anomaly at this point that they warrant there own category — one safe from biased and destructive regulatory action.

This puts more words to the petition than its creator may have intended, but the point is essentially the same.  Keep the FDA out of e-cig affairs that don’t fall under its reasonable jurisdiction.
