Vaping Encourages Smoking Cessation — So Let’s Kill the Vaping Industry?


The evidence clearly shows that vaping helps many smokers quit cigarettes.

Naturally, federal regulators and state legislators are trying to kill the e-cigarette industry.

Regulators and policymakers are on the warpath against vaping. Last fall, the FDA effectively banned millions of the most popular e-cigarette devices and nicotine liquids ex-smokers use in place of combustible tobacco. The agency’s decision was poised to wipe out a major portion of the e-cigarette industry. So instead of going out of business, some vaping companies evaded the agency’s decision by using synthetic nicotine in their products. The FDA at the time only had the authority to regulate products derived from tobacco, including nicotine.
