It has just come to our attention that the New York State Assembly voted unanimously to outlaw the sale of electronic cigarettes last week.
You can view the "discussion" as recorded by an ECF member below. Please note the total lack of debate, and the rehashing of the misleading FDA statements from last May.
All is not lost, however, as the Health Committee will also be voting on its version of the bill, and it is this that will be passed to the senate. Please therefore, contact all members of the health committee (details in following post) and urge them to vote against this cruel and inhumane legislation.
If possible, please call them and/or fax them - this is much more effective than emailing, as was discovered in the Illinois action.
There is a thread with much more detail in the CASAA forum, and I recommend that all ECF members read it: Attention ECF members and CASAA members!! Call to Action for New York!!
Remember, if this passes in New York State, we will likely see many other states crumble without opposition.
