Oh, you better believe it!
Obviously I'll be submitting multiple comments focusing on all sorts of things, and usually in a style more serious than this..
But, after all the nonsense from our opponents, sometimes you have to fight fire with fire, and just have some fun...
Why is the FDA even bothering trying to regulate e-cigarettes? The FDA can't even handle things that they are already supposed to regulate -- like highly-addictive nicotine gum & lozenges containing ingredients derived from what the FDA & Congress define as tobacco.
Any child or teenager under the age of 18 can simply visit the websites of national pharmacy chains like CVS (www.cvs.com) or Walgreens (www.walgreens.com), and with the appropriate information, purchase these concentrated-nicotine gums & lozenges and have them delivered to their home by the post office.
A simple search of these pharmacy websites will bring up dozens of available products in colorful & enticing packaging that are clearly marketed towards young children.
These products come in flavors like "Cool Mint," "Fruit Wave," "Cinnamon" & "Cherry." Not to mention that the nicotine lozenges look like little candies -- and we all know how much children love their candy.
And gum? Nicotine-laced gum? What are these companies & the FDA trying to do to our innocent children?? Addict them for life *and* give them cavities? Shame on all of you.
Regulate e-cigarettes? No, obviously the FDA already has too much on their plate, as they can't even handle regulating products that they already are supposed to be regulating! The FDA is trying to bite off much more than they could possibly chew -- pun not intended, of course.
I request that the FDA does not regulate e-cigarettes. Instead, they need to get a handle on these nicotine-laced gums & candies clearly marketed towards our children.
Thank you for your time & expected cooperation in this matter.
