    Question Why was the year 2007 picked in the proposed FDA regulations?

    I presume some company that had a product out pre-2008 has paid someone off but can someone fill me in on the details?

    Thanks

    I may be totally off here but I think it is when the FDA was granted the power to regulate tobacco.

    I've seen the answer before, but I don't remember what that answer was right now.
    But I do know it's not the answer you are thinking it is.

    IIRC, it was the date that the tobacco control act bill was first was introduced in Congress.

    That's what I was thinking too, but that's not it...

    Maybe it's because in 2007, e-cigs were not good quality, not like the choices that we have today. They were pre-filled carts, on cigalike batteries, no flavors, except "tobacco".

    That alone, should kill the demand for e-cigs and I have no doubt that is what the FDA is hoping will happen.

    DON'T go back to smoking, no matter what the FDA does.
    Going back to smoking will be a huge loss for you, in more ways than one.

    As far as I know, there were no ecigs being marketed in the USA before 2/15/07. That means all ecigs will have to go through the very costly new product registration process.

    I don't see any issues. The only e-cigs I have are NJOY kings, which I use from time to time. My ProVari are regulated power delivery systems...
