  1. Micro-comment #14 for FDA Deeming - re: reviews of evidence by Hajek and by Farsalinos

    by , 08-07-2014 at 08:40 AM
    Docket ID: FDA-2014-N-0189; RIN: 0910-AG38

    Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes, e-cigs, or ecigs) are not tobacco products and should not be treated as such. Deeming them as tobacco is a grave error with deadly consequences for more than 40 million American smokers who will be denied access to an alternative that is more than 1,000 times safer than combustible tobacco.

    The proposed deeming regulations would remove more than 99% of ecig products from the ...
  2. Newbie kills his first coil

    by , 08-07-2014 at 03:28 AM
    So after dealing with a nasty e-juice, I decided to clean the coil in my iClear 30S. I followed some instructions online, and realized my first boo-boo was pulling out a wick by accident. "No problem, I can put it back into place", I thought. After cleaning out the entire unit, I assembled it and dry-fired it a few times. Nope, it was dead. The coil wasn't lighting up at all. All it did was hiss and pop a few times (don't look into it when that happens). It still produces vapor, but it ...
  3. Why are e-cigs bad when all the separate ingredients are FDA approved?

    by , 08-06-2014 at 06:11 PM
    I don't understand why you want to regulate e-cigarettes and e-liquid as if it posed the same risk as traditional, combustible tobacco products when every ingredient in e-liquid when purchased separately is FDA approved already.

    E-liquid contains propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings, all of which are already approved--when purchased separately. But when we put them together and vape these ingredients, why does it suddenly pose a problem and has to ...

  5. My Response to FDA Deeming Regulations

    by , 08-06-2014 at 12:57 AM
    The use of personal vaporizers (PV) has allowed me to easily walk away from a 25+ year cigarette habit. This would not have occurred had I used the technology from 2007 or earlier (which I tried in 2008 and found lacking and unsatisfactory) or had my only choice of flavor been tobacco. In fact, dessert and fruit flavors are not only my favorite, but helped to reinforce the terrible flavor of cigarettes, making it much easier to say no to smoking and yes to vaping. The larger devices, made by small ...
