E-cigarette groups have already launched a legal battle to stop the FDA and warned that the vapor industry would go up in smoke if the regulations are fully implemented.
“The bad news is that August 8th … marks the beginning of a two-year countdown to FDA prohibition of 99.9%+ of vapor products on the market,” Greg Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, wrote Friday on the group’s website. “If we do not succeed in changing the FDA’s (new regulations), the vapor industry will shrink to almost nothing beginning August 8, 2018.”
Note by Gregory Conley, President of the AVA – As several vapers pointed out on Twitter, the title of this (otherwise fairly balanced) article is absurd. Before the FDA’s rules went into effect, 48 states already banned the sale of vapor products to minors.
