For the U.S. vaping industry, the past 12-months have been horrific. Countless vaping product retailers and many e-liquid manufacturers have shuttered operations in the wake of the so-called epidemic of teen vaping, the CDC’s outright deception over the so-called vaping-related lung illness and following the economic destruction resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
Now with just a little over a month left to meet the final deadline for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Premarket Tobacco Product Application process; the U.S. vaping industry is bracing for yet another purge, which could destroy vaping as we know it in America.
In this episode of RegWatch we are joined by Amanda Wheeler, President of the Rocky Mountain Smoke Free Alliance and Executive Director of the Arizona Smoke Free Business Alliance. Advocating on behalf of small manufacturers of non-cartridge ENDS products, Wheeler has been in direct discussion with officials at the United States Department of Health & Human Services, FDA and the Trump White House.
Learn details of the proposed plan to immediately establish an alternative “streamlined” PMTA pathway for small businesses selling non-cartridge ENDS. Hear what the response has been from HHS, FDA and the White House. And find out why Wheeler believes, that while “it’s a shot in the dark,” the industry should still “hope for the best.”
