FDA Regulation against vaping - seriously - How To Submit?

If you follow my blog, you know it is seldom measured or diplomatic. It is my personal vent. I have very good health and sleep well at night because I can let rip here. It's my therapy.

But, despite all the ranting that I have done in the past, hoping to generate the same passion in others, it is now time to be deadly serious.

In our efforts to thwart short sighted legislation we must take time to be polite, yet honest. We need to contemplate, cogitate and respond correctly. This is no time for throwing insults like I do, or calling the Tobacco Control in all its forms "zombie anti-tobacco cult people" or any other sneering terms, no matter how delicious it feels.Those are just vague swipes at the general enemy. Now is the time to aim precisely.

We CAN do something.  In the USA, you have the option of contacting the FDA. Don't hurry. There is time to be polite and measured.

Currently, the best post on what to do in the USA is this one I have read from DimiSphere (quoted below) - But we could also use these ideas in the UK on our own politicians, yes? and why can't we also write to the FDA? Their final decision will affect the world ultimately.

FDA Regulations, what can we do NOW!

The above URL will take you to the place where you can submit YOUR comments! Some information you may be able to share includes:
A personal and concise story about how the E-Cigarette products that have been introduced into the market in the past 4 years (my bold) have helped keep you away from using traditional tobacco products.

Express that while flavors may be appealing to youths, they are also much preferred to the nasty taste of tobacco cigarettes. These flavors and the variety of options available are paramount to the success of E-Cigarettes as an alternative choice for adult smokers.  Explain any and all health benefits you have seen since this change in your life style!
There are many many more things that can be said, I encourage you to be true and honest to your own personal experience. Please encourage friends & family members to submit their comments as well!
While these talking points are a great way for vapers to voice the effectiveness of these new products, nothing is more beneficial than scientific data! While submitting your comments, the FDA allows for you to upload an attachment. Here are a few examples of those studies!

Doing something makes the head rest comfortably on your pillow at night. Do not let what is happening in the vaping world affect your health. Your personal health comes first. We are watching the procession of History. PEOPLE make History. And WE ARE THOSE PEOPLE.

Stay cool. Vape on. Spread the word. And do not trample on on the shoulders of smokers to achieve your goal. We are all in this together.

Namaste
