Freedom, and Free To Vape. Just words? To some maybe not to me. Freedom has never come cheaply. It has been fought for for so long it's almost taken for granted others will do the fighting for us.
I'm CASAA and FreeToVape. I do what I can. Short of the government turning control of nicotine over to the DEA, subject to rewriting the drug laws to accommodate nicotine as a Schedule V Drug, all the governments energy so far is focused on flavors and keeping children safe from nicotine poisoning. Oh sure the hard core zealots are warning of future tobacco addiction among minors from all of the cool advertising of e-cigarettes but really all they got on us is flavors.
Let them use the FDA to regulate flavors, that shouldn't really matter. It does only because serious vendors haven't come up with a way to just sell the flavors in a concentrated enough formula without nicotine, and a nicotine base with each order. That would solve a lot of the DOOM going on. I would also add that DIY being as complicated as it is, the serious vendor put instructions on recommended nicotine base for each milligram per milliliter of juice.
ALWAYS FOLLOW SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Those can be found in the DIY section of this forum.
Hardwear, well my advice is buy now, regret later, GET THE MOD NOW BAYBEE! .. lol
Equipment isn't hard to get either, and isn't expensive. So instead of sitting back and wondering if one or two years down the road you will need to learn DIY, it is my suggestion that you go ahead with it. Oh and btw keep up with FreeToVape and CASAA and take action when needed. Sharing a bit of good news:
The FDA has extended the Public Comment period by 30 days - to August 8th. Not a lot, but it sure is going to help in the numbers... with some much needed extra time for us to network and get the word out more. :-))
Literally - it is very much about the numbers! We are going to be noticed and taken seriously based on the ongoing positive application of our efforts.
We really need to reach all those people that are vaping - those that are just not aware yet, or are just not quite motivated enough to be heard yet. If they truly understood how the FDA hardware regulations are going to change their choices of equipment, and thus the quality of their vaping experience forever - eliciting additional collective support will certainly help our cause.
Many thanks from the vaping community, to those retail stores that are displaying the signage, and even handing out the new flyer! Your support and efforts are very much appreciated!
We still want to help the retail websites, in being a better resource to you; please let us know if you think of other ways we can help get the word out to your clientèle.
And to all of you that are on the street talking to/ educating all those people everyday - "Thank You So Very Much!!"
It is working! The numbers are steadily growing; we just need to keep our momentum strong.
We have made edits to the website, and all of the PDF documents, to reflect the new FDA public comment period deadline.
Together, we can #SpreadTheWord-Free To Vape Team
