    Default CASAA New York State SALES BAN Call to Action!!


    New York State Senator Kemp Hannon has proposed Bill S07635 (Link: S7635-2011 - NY Senate Open Legislation - Prohibits the sale or offering for sale of electronic cigarettes - New York State Senate).


    This bill would:

    If enacted, prohibit all sales of electronic cigarettes. It amends New York Public Health Law, §1399-11, enacted in August 2000, which prohibited cigarette sellers and common carriers from shipping cigarettes directly to consumers.


    The bill was introduced in the Health Committee and may be referred to the Rules Committee which meets daily. Thus it could be sent to the full Senate at any time. So it is urgent that messages be sent to members of the Rules Committeeimmediately.



    NOTE: You do not need to include all of the items listed below, but the first two are vital.


    What to say:
    1. Let them know that you strongly oppose S07635 that would ban all electronic cigarette sales, but that you do support a ban on sales to minors. Senator Johnson's S02926B (same as A 9044-B introduced by Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal) would appropriately ban sales to minors while keeping the products available to adults as a reduced-risk alternative to smoking.


    2. Tell your story on how switching from smoking cigarettes to a far less hazardous alternative product has changed your life. When and why did you start using an e-cigarette? What effect has this had on your smoking of tobacco cigarettes? What has been the effect on your health?


    3. Explain that research has consistently shown that virtually all e-cigarette users are using them as a substitute for smoking. The vast majority tried to quit smoking multiple times, using the other methods available and failed.


    4. Tell them that there are an estimated 250,000 e-cigarette users in New York. Many, deprived of the ability to purchase e-cigarettes in New York, will return to the far more hazardous act of smoking since tobacco cigarettes will, ironically, continue to be readily available in New York.


    5. Tell them that e-cigarettes have been shown to pose so little health risk that it is below what can be measured and no one has even tried to estimate it.
    a. Claims about chemical contamination are vastly overblown. Some of the supposed contaminants occur as such incredibly low levels that they are barely measurable using the most modern instruments.
    b. Pharmaceutical nicotine products like patches and nicotine gum contain about the same quantities of “carcinogens” as a gram of e-cigarette liquid—about 8 nanograms. In contrast, a pack of Marlboro cigarettes contains 126,000 nanograms.
    6. Tell them that cigarette lighters and home fires started by smoking tobacco cigarettes cause far more injuries than e-cigarettes have. According to one study, well over a thousand people are injured per year due to defective lighters [news story], and over 1,000 people are killed by fires caused by smoking [FEMA].

    7. As for smoking itself, on average, it is estimated that smoking for just a couple of months poses a greater health risk than a lifetime of using a smoke-free nicotine or tobacco product.

    6. Direct them to the CASAA.org website for more information.

    Wish I lived in the U.S. as I would certainly send my objections in. At least in spirit I can support CASAA and wish you luck. Thanks very much.

    I saw Pinkspot's post on Facebook about this and immediately wrote my email.
    I only quit smoking in May and would hate for my state government to force me to go back to it!

    Just as an FYI, if you live in New York include your full name and address in your e-mail. A lot of them auto responded asking for this information.

    They are trying to ban pvs but they are about to put forth a bill decriminalizing possession of a certain herb under 25 grams? They already made it illegal to buy a soda over 16 ozs, so it doesn't look good for ecigs. What a joke!
