Tobacco contains Nicotine;
"NICOTINE IS NOT TOBACCO"
"The new regulations are based on the idea that E- CIGARETTES are considered TOBACCO when in fact they are nothing more than a NICOTINE DELIVERY SYSTEM and are NOT TOBACCO.
If the FDA's proposed regulations go into force, the likely outcome is a severe reduction in consumer choice, and thus fewer smokers quitting and more.
At last, after months of anticipation, the FDA finally unleashed the proposed regulatory plan — the “deeming regulations” — that the drug agency will apply to electronic cigarettes (ecigs). If these regulations go into force — and that may take years — the likely outcome is a severe reduction in consumer choice, and thus fewer smokers quitting and more dying needlessly.The devil in the 241-page long proposed regulations is the requirement for new tobacco products to get what amounts to pre-market approval via a “new tobacco product application” (NTPA). The FDA estimates that such NTPAs will require thousands of man-hours of data collection and hundreds of thousands of dollars or more, a burden few current ecig companies will be able to survive.
