    I've waded through some of the material on ECF but admittedly a rather shallow excursion. I'm confused as to exactly when the other shoe drops. The big question - exactly when will products become unavailable. By products, I mean all the liquids, mods, attys, etc. manufactured by suppliers who have been unwilling or unable to fund the studies required by the FDA. I assume that many many vendors fall into that category.

    I assume that on this date, legal shipments of those products will cease, U.S. customs would have the right to inspect and confiscate, retail sales will halt and the dark ages for vaping begins.

    My apologies in advance. The answer is probably addressed in many posts. I just haven't been able to locate a definitive answer.

    They aren't going to disappear tomorrow or next month. If it goes through customs it may/may not be pulled. All of my overseas shipments always say "electronic component".

    Some years vaping is proposed to end in the Spring, some years in January. Last year and maybe this year it'll be August.

    Your local laws and taxes lately are more of a thing.

    IIRC, the date you're looking for was August 8, 2018, but was extended three months to November. I think that if the deeming regs aren't changed, most vapers who haven't stocked up or know where to buy their vape gear on the black/gray market, will go back to smoking or just quit completely. Even worse, few smokers will become vapers.

    Fortunately, I've seen a lot of things in last few months that give me hope that things will change.

    seeing as the lawsuit that was pending went in the FDA's favor, all bets are off, you might see vendors closing in droves in the coming year.
