This Could Be the Last Stand for Vaping
The vape industry currently stands on the edge of complete demise thanks to regulatory overreach. However, two Congressmen, Reps. Tom Cole (R-OK) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA), recently introduced legislation, which, if passed, may grant the e-cigarette industry a much-needed reprieve.
Over the past year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has targeted the e-cigarette industry, using false claims and fear-mongering to pass regulations that will likely put the majority of the industry out of business.
The new regulations were, of course, created in the name of protecting the American people from a potentially dangerous product. In reality, however, the only entity actually protected by these new laws is big tobacco.
In the Name of Cronyism
The FDA is, without a doubt, one of the worst offenders of cronyism within the United States government. And considering the size and scope of our federal bureaucratic system, this title is not easily earned.
