Earlier today, CASAA posted about an ECCA UK petition to stop the EU from moving to ban e-cigarettes in member countries. The ban would also block all other smokeless products with the exception of Swedish snus.

It’s clear that the EU has taken the same stance as the FDA and WHO on smokeless products in the quit-or-die mentality. Those who take this stance tend to believe the promotion of anything that vaguely resembles tobacco use to be unacceptable, no matter the public health implications. Despite a growing body of research for e-cigarettes, these public health authorities continue to stand against a product that could save countless lives.

Please sign the petition here: No Ban On Electronic Smoking – AVAAZ.org

      I am so sad at the thought that this could go ahead. We in the UK pay billions of ££££’s just for the privellage of being in this bullying beaurocratic sham of an organisation, one that i wish we would get out of.
      Who are they to say whats not good for me.

            Heading there to sign now. .Not sure if it will help if us US citizens sign but I will try. I really hope this ban doesn’t go through. it would not be good for us here in the US either. It would just give people who oppose ecigs more ammunition.
