    E-Cigarettes: A $1.5 Billion Industry Braces for FDA Regulation

    A good article that covers all the main issues, and even eludes to the Pharma sub-plot ..

    E-Cigarettes: FDA Regulation Looms for $1.5 Billion Industry - Businessweek

    Some of the links were interesting, like this one ...

    I don't know what winds me up the worst! The constant ANTZ stuff that comes out of the UK/EU or the blatant money grabbing attitude that comes out of the US. I've noted that recently, a lot of the media from the US is from Business types, whilst the UK/EU is generally ANTZ, although, refreshingly, we are seeing a lot of sensible information starting to be broadcast by academics, and a couple of times by the Beeb *falls over in shock* Thanks for sharing OD

    I don't care that big pharma wants to get into vaping, although I'm annoyed that they are spending so much money trying to torpedo it in the EU, but that's just predictable capitalism.

    What I don't want is my prices going up tenfold because now they all want their cut, on a product they didn't invent, didn't support and didn't improve on.

    I think even just the community here is strong enough that the only thing they could tax is nic and pre made juice, short of those two items everything else pg/vg concentrates are used by other industries. If they tried to push tax on pvs and clearos cartos replacement heads etc some will pay the price but many will just use rebuildables can't tax kanthal and cotton
