Tennesse E-cig ban hearing tomorrow! Call TODAY!
Wednesday, April 20th at 2 PM at the Statehouse in Nashville, Tennessee the House Agriculture Sub-Committee will meet to discuss and vote on HB 1729. Sections 1 to 17 of this bill ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. Be aware that Section 18 would ban the sale of electronic cigarettes until they are approved by the FDA as a drug delivery devices (as the New York Bill also tried to do), which the two federal courts have suggested should not happen.
Vapers EVERYWHERE should phone / fax the legislators on this committee (Phone and Fax numbers for TN Committee Members) <http://vapebans.com/TNCommittteephoneinfo.html> and express the need to vote NO on this bill unless an amendment is offered on the bill that would delte Section 18 from the bill.
We also need vapers in Tennessee to go to the meeting. If there was ever a day to take off of work this is it!*
If you do not feel comfortable speaking... just be there to show we are strong in our numbers and they cannot silence us!
NVC Stop the ban!

Thanks ejoker- wish I could go!
It looks like whatever amendment is going to be put in the bill won't happen until at the subcommittee at this point. Sneaky as usual- no time to really digest it. Some of us have discussed this and what we have heard is that it may be a "compromise" to allow vendors who have "registered" with the FDA- something that other committee members might buy...well, we know that's a joke, but what do they or the general public know about this anyway?
