E-Cigarette Refills Would Require Childproof Packaging Under New Bill

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/29/2014 to E-Cigarette Industry

COLUMBUS, Ohio — New bipartisan legislation in the Ohio Senate would require e-cigarette liquid to be sold in child-resistant packaging.

Violators could be fined up to $1,000 per offense under Senate Bill 379, introduced Wednesday by Sen. Shannon Jones, a Springboro Republican. The money collected from offenders would go to the local county treasury.

E-cigarettes work by vaporizing a liquid, which is then inhaled. Jones' bill would require childproof packaging for all such liquids, whether they contain nicotine or not.

Is Vaping Going to Replace Smoking Entirely?

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/28/2014 to Electronic Cigarette Education
As vaping mainstreams and hits the big screen Phoebe Luckhurst asks whether our non-smoking habits will go up in a puff of steam.

Insiders know that the real party invariably takes place outside. The coolest guests spinning the most compelling conversations are always found in the eye of the swirls of slender white smoke. 

Unlike the velvet cordons of the VIP area the smoking area doesn't discriminate — smokers and non-smokers are welcome. As are increasingly a third group: the vapers. Now the whirls of white smoke are accented with illuminated spots — the tips of e-cigarettes.

An estimated 2.1 million Britons vape and the industry is worth £1.2 billion in the US. Celebrity fans include Leonardo DiCaprio, Cara Delevingne, Lily Allen, Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jack Nicholson. The goodie bags at this year’s GQ Man of the Year awards included an e-cig.

Let Them Vape Cake

New York City Councilman Costa Constantinides (D-Queens) wants to ban flavored electronic cigarettes. For the children.

“These flavors are direct marketing to children,” he told the Daily News. “They appeal to children, and we’re taking them out of that market.”

The councilman’s crusade — which ignores the fact that it’s already illegal to sell e-cigs to minors — reflects two misconceptions that are common among critics who portray e-cigarettes as a menace to the youth of America. 

They think vaping leads to smoking, and they assume any flavor other than tobacco is strictly for kids. Based on these myths, they push measures that would undermine public health 
instead of promoting it.

Don't Let Big Tobacco Crush E-Cigarettes

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/16/2014 to E-Cigarette Industry
(CNN) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering how to best regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products. While some regulation is needed, the current proposal entails a huge paperwork burden that will create a barrier to entry into the market for all but the biggest players -- namely, Big Tobacco.

Specifically, the FDA has indicated that it may require e-cigarette manufacturers to complete a long paperwork process before it will consider a product for approval.

Many industry watchers believe that only very large manufacturers (i.e., Big Tobacco companies) would have the financial resources to meet the requirements, which could demand an estimated 5,000 hours per application, with every product combination requiring a new application. According to the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association, only 25 products among thousands currently available would eventually be licensed.
The tobacco industry will then be able to buy the small e-cigarette makers that are unable to meet the FDA's requirements.

Big Tobacco will then get to decide which products are sold such that it can manage its own transition from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, or end e-cigarettes as a product category entirely, whichever better serves its financial interests.

Fire Marshal Concerned Over E-cigarettes On Planes

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/13/2014 to E-Cigarette News
BOSTON (AP) — Federal regulators should consider further regulations on electronic cigarettes on airplanes, Massachusetts' top fire official said after his office recently concluded one of the devices caused a small fire on a plane at Logan Airport.

The Aug. 9 fire, confined to a single piece of luggage in the cargo hold, forced a temporary evacuation of the plane. A baggage handler located and extinguished the fire before the JetBlue aircraft took off for Buffalo, New York.

Massachusetts Fire Marshal Stephen Coan said his office's investigators confirmed, as initially had been suspected, that an e-cigarette packed in a passenger's checked luggage somehow turned on, causing the fire.

In a letter earlier this week to the Federal Aviation Administration, he expressed concern that the devices can be inadvertently triggered in the normal handling of luggage.

Six Senators Urge Stronger Warnings on E-Cigarettes

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/13/2014 to E-Cigarette News
Six United States senators urged federal regulators Thursday to require stronger warning labels on e-cigarettes.

In a letter to the Food and Drug Administration, the senators said labels should warn consumers of "the known dangers of nicotine use,” including risks to adolescent brain development.

The F.D.A. has proposed rules governing e-cigarettes, a product that has shot up to nearly $3 billion in annual sales. E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices used to heat nicotine for inhalation, but they do not burn tobacco, as do cigarettes.

Broadly, e-cigarettes are considered far less harmful than cigarettes, a leading cause of preventable death around the world. But the long-term effects of e-cigarettes are not known, which has led to an intensifying debate in public health circles and caution on the part of the F.D.A.

At the heart of the debate is a question of whether e-cigarettes can be a tool to help smokers quit cigarettes but do so without leading to a glorification of smoking or nicotine use, particularly among young people. The uncertain and sometimes conflicting scientific data comes as traditional tobacco companies – the very cigarette makers that smaller e-cigarette makers hope to displace – have become major players in the new market.

E-cigarette Messages Confuse and Confound

Posted by ECigaVapeUSA on 10/1/2014 to E-Cigarette News
Tobacco companies, long considered public health enemy No. 1, have suddenly positioned themselves as protectors of consumer well-being in the digital age.
They are putting out among the strongest health warnings in the fledgling e-cigarette industry, going further even than the familiar ones on actual cigarettes, a leading cause of death. It has left the industry’s critics scratching their heads and deeply skeptical.

One warning, from Altria, maker of Marlboros, reads in part: “Nicotine is addictive and habit forming and is very toxic by inhalation, in contact with the skin, or if swallowed.”
Another, from Reynolds American, maker of Camels, says the product is not intended for people “who have an unstable heart condition, high blood pressure, or diabetes; or people who are at risk for heart disease or are taking medicine for depression or asthma.”

They appear on the packaging for the companies’ e-cigarettes, which are part of a fast-growing industry that the tobacco companies are maneuvering to dominate.

The warnings, which are entirely voluntary and are seen by some as attempts to reduce legal liability or burnish corporate reputations, generally exceed what amounts to modest cautions, silence or even positive health claims from smaller e-cigarette makers.

One on a pack of nicotine cartridges for MarkTen e-cigarettes, for instance, the brand Altria is introducing nationwide, runs more than 100 words. People with heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes should not use the product, the label says. Neither should children. It goes on to say that nicotine can cause dizziness, nausea and stomach pains, and may worsen asthma.
