    Wink FDA back down

    Stolen from VF lock and stock
    For immediate release:
    contact: Bill Godshall 412-351-5880
    smokefree@compuserve.com

    E-cigarettes, e-liquid and other nicotine containing products are now tobacco products
    Today's annoucement by the FDA http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Public.../ucm252360.htm to not appeal Judge Richard Leon's ruling in NJOY v FDA https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin...?2009cv0771-54 to the US Supreme Court means that e-cigarettes, e-liquid, nicotine gums, lozenges, patches, skin creams and nasal sprays are now unregulate tobacco products according to federal law (as long as no therapeutic claim is made by the manufacturer/importer).

    These nicotine products now join cigars and pipe tobacco as unregulated tobacco products under the Family Smoking Prevention Tobacco Control Act. Currently regulated tobacco products include cigarettes, roll-your-own and smokeless tobacco.

    Bill Godshall, executive director of Smokefree Pennsylvania, welcomes this sea change in the federal legal definintion and regulation of tobacco/nicotine products, stating: "Smokers will have greater access to many different less expensive smokefree alternatives, and manufacturers can now truthfully market these new smokefree tobacco products to smokers as far less hazardous alternatives to cigarettes."

    Sales of e-clgarettes are likely to continue skyrocketing with this decision, and many more stores will begin selling them.
    There is no evidence that e-cigarettes have harmed any of the estimated million smokers who have switched in the past several years. "This decision will boost e-cigarette sales at the expense of tobacco cigarettes, and many more smokers will switch," said Godshall.

    The change is also likely to decimate drug industry sales of nicotine gums, lozenges and patches. "Not many smokers will pay $.75 for a nicotine lozenge if they can buy a virtually identical tobacco lozenge for $.20," added Godshall.

    The FDA has indicated that it plans to propose regulations for these smokefree nicotine alternatives as tobacco products.

    That's fantastic news! Hopefully with "FDA Approval" it might loosen the laws in Canada.

    And between that and New Zealand seeming to be not anti-vaping, who knows what might happen here?

    Oops...sorry, just realized I was dreaming there...

    Thats what they are concerned about-tax and regulation on the way

    A link to Dr Micheal Seagles blog-he has been battling the Big Tobacco for years.
    here is his take on the effect of the latest decision.

    I always LOL when I hear these government or interest groups claiming and asserting that certain measures will 'save countless live' of course they are telling the truth, zero cannot be counted.
