FDA Comments Deadline Hits This Wednesday

The FDA’s public hearing on December 17th was an opportunity for individuals to provide input in regards to the future of tobacco and nicotine alternatives regulation.  The event was both insightful and considered a bit of a success for e-cig advocates.

In addition to in-person comments accepted at the public hearing, the FDA has been accepting written comments and will continue to until this coming Wednesday (Jan. 16th).  If you have input you would like taken into account, make sure you get it in by that day.

Dr. Riccardo Polosa from the University of Catania even submitted comments from the other side of the world.  Don’t think you need to be a well-regarded scientist, e-cig business owner, or wordsmith to get involved.  Everyone’s voice counts here!

Share your personal story, mirror arguments made by organizations like CASAA or SFATA, or just provide your viewpoint on the issue.  The more input the FDA receives telling them to think before they act, the better.

Electronic comments can be submitted here!

              I for one hope they truly listen to every comment versus the thinking they know what is best for all.

                          Thank you for the article Klaus, and for the link for our comments to the FDA! We should submit a comment to the FDA to share our opinions and story!

                            I am starting to write my own comments.

                            Trying to only use small words an pictures so they will be able to understand.

                            The hard part in convincing them that e-cigs do not contain tobacco and you do not have to light them.

                                Thank you so much for the link! I don’t know if they will actually listen or not but it never hurts to try! and surely they would take notice if there is an overwhelming response. There is power in numbers!
