Quite the month for the vaping industry as a whole, if I say so myself.
On July 18th, Public Health England, an executive agency of the Department of Health in the United Kingdom, sided with vaping as an alternative to cigarettes with a 32-page document; today, the FDA announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a roadmap to better protect children and significantly decrease tobacco-related disease and death.

The past months have seen some invigorating victories for the vape industry. The Right to Be Smoke-Free Coalition achieved a major victory in Indiana, whose bizarre regulations violated hundreds of years of commerce law. Rep. Tom Cole (R) and Rep. Sanford Bishop (D) are at it again with a promising new Amendment to change the grandfather date for deemed tobacco products.

On February 2, 2017, Arizona government officials introduced a Senate Bill (SB 1517) that, if passed, will increase the taxes on all vape-related products to 95% of the wholesale cost. This is a severe increase of the tax on these items, and would have a devastating effect on the vaping industry, up to and including businesses shutting down.

By now, we’ve all seen anti-vaping propaganda. It can be found on TV, YouTube, poorly-crafted websites, online forums, and virtually any media you can imagine. How much does it cost to create this bogus content, and how much does it cost to broadcast it to every American home? According to my research, it’s in the hundreds of millions. Who is paying for this malarchy? Why, it’s you! The tax-paying American!
