In fact, will people please head over to that thread and get the discussion going? Nearing disaster in New York - please take action NOW to prevent e-cigarette ban.
I just started a new thread in the Law sub-forum, as it involves a communication to NYS legislators I wrote as an individual, not as a CASAA board person. But it definitely should be of interest to all concerned with the campaign going on over S7234 in NY.
NY legislators confused on effect of proposed ecig bills?
In case anyone's wondering WHY I still have the SD as my sig, it's because I got my first ecig in January 2008 but still smoked for 10 months, until I got my first SD. I have other APVs, but also still love and use my SD (with a Bulli on top). I will be forever grateful to Trog for saving my life!
Thanks for corrections - I knew that, just muddled it. This somehow feels all disorganized. Will shoot off another revised letter as soon as I can, and I appreciate the feedback.
thanks for the quick way to email
I did it and will encourage those I have gotten into vaping to do the same
Emailed, and spreading the word to the community on DeviantArt. I am thankfully rather connected there in the chatrooms so hopefully the emails will help
Hats off to any of you New Yorkers that are stepping up to the plate on this one. Getting in touch with the decision makers and sharing your stories is probably a great idea.. Hopefully they listen!
Good luck to you guys, got my fingers crossed for ya.
Folks we're going to loose the war if we don't organize ourselves soon
We've facing a well organized industry and significant and powerful lobbist power. Our letters and demonstration is like fighting the army with water pistols. It doesn't hurt but we're overpowered.
What's very unfortunate is that Joe public does not really understand the issues and how e-cig can - at a practical level - save millions of life in North America. They really only hear one side full of rethoric and misinformation.
I am afraid that if we don't step up our game very soon we're going to continue being associated with the cigarette industry in the public mindset, facilitation the passing of these legislations. It will be too late and these legistations will NEVER be undone and as a perserve collateral impact leave millions of North American addicted to nicotine stuck with continuing the habbit that will most likley kill them eventally.
Here's what I propose if we're serious about having a decent chance of stopping this nonsense: If most e-cig users would chip in let's say $10 (50K *$10=500K, and the industry chips in as well) we could get ourselves some top rated lawyers, doctors and PR/Lobbist to get our world out now and the facts considered before it's too late.
JM, the realist.
Guys they dont read there own emails, They have assistants to filter through them
Yes, but I would assume a state senator doesn't usually get a huge amount of email. If all of the sudden there are hundreds or thousands of emails on the same subject, they'll probably notice.
