Kentucky Vapers Make Some Noise!
Ecig Advanced HQ sits in some small offices on the southeast end of Lexington, Kentucky. So when events occur in the state, we take time to unabashedly plug them more than in other places (sorry other places). Well, the time has come for Kentucky’s vapers to make their voices heard in the ongoing state-level debates over electronic cigarettes.
We already put together some facts to help legislators make appropriate e-cig decisions. An act (HB190) is awaiting a vote in the Kentucky House of Representatives. This act would institute a number of smoking bans and modify terminology and definitions to include electronic cigarettes in all smoking bans.
The Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternative Association (CASAA) has already got a nice call to action in place with all the details you could possibly need make your voice heard.
Because there’s still no federal level decision on how to handle electronic cigarettes and the FDA still refuses to provide accurate information on them, it’s easy for legislatures to point to outdated FDA announcements and think they’ve done their homework. State-level fights over how to handle electronic cigarettes continue to be the grounds for the real battle while the FDA sticks its fingers in its ears and yells “la la la la la la la!”
