That is precisely why I'm not going to just sit back and do nothing. I am getting PROactive versus REactive and try to do all I can before things get any worse. I don't feel that I am not alone in this thinking.
Defensive war with the FDA, health organizations, and zealots that couldn't care less
about Truth, Health, or Science.
What the E-cigarette movement lacks is an "Aggressive Offense" with organized
offensive “leadership” with a plan. Not a “Re-actionary” team (we already have that).
An offense that is not “officially” associated with CASAA to protect their reputation…
(If you can read between the lines)
I will be discussing this subject at a local meeting in a few weeks.
Especially when it comes to selling the juices.
But I see it moreso as being a problem associated with the expense and hassle of complying with regulations.
And when I say regulations, I mean those that are absolutely guaranteed to come eventually.
It is only, and has always been, just a question of what form those regulations will take.

You know, a lot of folks are pointing fingers at Glaxo and the other "smoking cessation" product manufacturers, but frankly, I think it goes WAY beyond that. I think the real culprits are RJR Reynolds, US Tobacco, Philip Morris etc. Those fat cats are crapping their pants over the e-cig revolution, and they've got the money to buy Senators, Congressmen, and the FDA.
And as far as pointing fingers at Big Pharma, why else would the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, & Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids be sending lobbyists out to state and local legislatures, trying to get them to pass bans? They get huge donations from Big Pharma.

Yep, what DC2 and Elaine said. So far, no one associated with BT (Big Tobacco) has opposed e-cigarettes. Frankly, it's win-win for BT, because they are the ones who provide nicotine to e-cigs and BP and they could easily start selling e-cigarettes themselves.
Everyone coming out against e-cigarettes has had ties to BP (Big Pharmaceutical companies) including the lobbyists pressuring legislators. It's not just conjecture or finger pointing - just follow the money trail.
