Transcripts For The FDA’s December Public Hearing

It’s as good a time for any for a bit of rampant linking connecting a few bits of the site that relate to one another.  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.  A transcript of the event is now available at the FDA website and can be seen here.

At the same time, the Tobacco Merchants Association has created a transcript of the event.  Theirs is a little easier to read.  If nothing else, its nice to have a backup in place to make sure everything said at the event was recorded.

Check out their transcript here.

The Tobacco Merchant’s Association supports the various companies involved in tobacco product manufacture, sales, and distribution.  Their annual meeting last year offered us a great chance to meet some movers affecting the world of electronic cigarettes.  Case in point: Riccardo Polosa and Michael Siegel.  We hope to make it this year too!

I also covered the FDA public hearing in real time.  My key takeaway can be found here.  The public hearing was the first in what will certainly be a long effort by the FDA to understand and reign in the electronic cigarette market.  The more people that speak out, even in the presence of arguably deft FDA ears, the better.

    Interesting read… especially when you read your notes from the hearing… what I got from it, is 50% of smokers die, (Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco )…too many are dying and not enough are quitting… we need new intervention (Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids)…52% try to quit and only 7% succeed (American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Inc)… AND everyone of them support a fast track of ecigs! Thanks for keeping us informed… now it sounds as if there were valuable and reliable participants. Oh wait, I didn’t include the FDA… and big tobacco… and the pharmaceutical companies!
