    The FDA is not at all concerned about tax dollars. They don't collect taxes. They spend taxes. They are wasting our tax dollars on trying to ban e-cigarettes.

    What they are concerned about is their own omnipotent power.

    Kind-of funny...not really; but I placed an order from over seas about 45 days ago now. The company has been great with tracking numbers and such and very apologetic, but the tracking just sort of stops at our coast with no further information and USPS hasn't received it yet. Makes me wonder...is it really lost or is the FDA involved some how.

    I'm not claiming to be any sort of authority,but can't other vendors that have shipments seized file lawsuits against the FDA using the same precedent that applied to SE and NJoy?

    Thank you very much for this post. I have already fired off letters to my Senators and Rep. I would suggest ALL OF US DO THIS.
    I also wanted to put my money where my mouth is and have become a contributing member of CASAA. This I also would encourage ALL OF US TO DO.
    Is this matter important to you? If so, then action is required - consistant action - NOW.

    I want to be able to continue to "Vape On".

    Example of a short and sweet letter:
    Dear ______________
    Please tell the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to stop wasting taxpayer money on their attempts to ban electronic cigarettes as "unapproved drug-delivery devices." Two levels of the U.S. federal court system have told the FDA they cannot seize incoming shipments and that they should be regulating the products under the Tobacco Act. Yet the FDA persists in wasting our tax dollars on filing more appeals. They also continue to seize incoming shipments in defiance of the court orders. That costs money, too.

    [Insert personal story here]



    The American Association of Public Health Physicians has stated that products like the electronic cigarette could save the lives of 4 million of the 8 million U.S. smokers who would otherwise die of smoking related disease within the next 20 years. The FDA is supposed to helps save lives. Please don't allow them to kill smokers. Contact me if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Name
    Address
    Phone number

    According to the OP in the other thread mentioned above;
    The FDA did call back and yes my little package is being held by them. The FDA Agent said that they are holding any and all e cigarette shipments that they find. They still can legally hold them since after the verdict on Dec 7th they have so many days to appeal and try to get a stay and during this time they can still seize packages. He thought it was 50 days after the verdict but wasn't sure. They are waiting for the decision to be made by the FDA. If they appeal they will be able to stop shipments and all these shipments will be sent back to China. If they don't appeal then all these shipments will be released and sent to everyone in the U.S. They will wait for a directive from the FDA before anything is done with these packages. He said at this time they are trying to stop everything that is coming through Chicago. He didn't know if the other ports were being as diligent, but the directive was sent to all Customs, but they were and that they were holding big or small packages, it didn't matter.
    So they're stopping everything they can get their hot little hands on, supplier or individual, big or small. What's worse is, unlike before they aren't sending them back if requested. Everything is getting warehoused until the FDA decides what they're going to do.

    If the FDA is continuing to sieze or have customs sieze in violation of the court decision....isn't that contempt of court? Perhaps we shoud direct our letters to Judge Leon and those apellate justices whose orders are being violated. Judges don't like being ignored and made fool of. As far as I can tell, there is no active appeal....but rather just the FDA asking for the opportunity to file one.

    I too wrote my Congressman and both Senators thanks to Vocalek's excellent form letter. It really made the process sooooo much easier and to the point. Thanks Elaine!!

    Everyone listen up!!
    Please send your elected representatives a personalized copy of Vocalek's letter she has posted in this thread. This stepped up confiscation policy by the fDa needs to be stopped by any means necessary.
