I know that there's a lot of advocacy and campaigning going on. As someone who has a lot of experience working with big-pharma, supplement companies and dealing with the FDA I just want to say keep fighting, but don't hold your breath.
The FDA doesn't exist to protect you. They don't care about your health, and they certainly don't care about petitions or what people think. They exist solely to protect the interest of the monopolies in the establishment. Big-pharma. Agriculture. They want to control what you can put into your body and who you can pay to get it from. That's where their interest ends.
My goal here isn't to convince those who may hold any illusions to the contrary to believe me. I won't go into my personal experiences or argue about it - but a good example is a movie I just watched called "Dallas Buyers Club" - pretty good flick and a somewhat accurate (although watered down) account of just how evil the FDA is.
Politics aside - I personally refuse to obey any future legislation telling me that I can't vape. They would effectively be murdering millions of smokers who vaping could save. My right to life is more important to me than their right to extortion.
I won't comply.
I won't tell others what to do, but I think it's best to be prepared if you wish to continue vaping after any laws are passed.
My hope with this thread is to take control away from them and put it into the hands of the people. I haven't done the research (and I may not have the time) - so I'm asking for help.
I'm sure the info is already widely available on this forum. I think it'd be great to have a central resource for 100% "open-source" vaping. If you have any links or insights to share myself and I'm sure plenty of others would appreciate information on...
-DIY Tanks, atties, etc.
-DIY juices (flavor extracts, etc if current vendors get shut down).
-DIY nicotine extract (I think liquid nicotine would be an easy target for them).
-Other general advice and insights.
What are you doing to prepare? Any links/insights are greatly appreciated - and I'll do my best to contribute as I read up on it further.
