Federal Flavor Ban Proposed by Trump Administration

Trump Proposes federal flavor ban on vaping products

Dear Liquid Barn Family:

As you may be aware, vaping has come under fire recently after new health reports swarmed the media, leading to a general panic and even legislation banning the sale of flavored eLiquids in the state of Michigan.

This week, President Trump announced his intention for a federal flavored e-Liquid ban, further inciting the need for our community to band together against this misdirected attention.

While the cause of the lung-related illnesses are being investigated, testing completed by the FDA indicates these recent events are linked to black market THC cartridges, and presumably, a thickening agent named Vitamin E Acetate (found in counterfeit vaping oil -- NOT legitimate and regulated eLiquid products sold today).

As you know, not all vapor is the same, and the frenzy of headlines and hype has resulted in negative coverage that now poses a direct threat to vapers everywhere.

Here’s the problem with a flavor ban:

Since the days of prohibition, we’ve learned that banning something usually has an adverse effect, often leading consumers to black market and unsafe measures.

And worse yet, millions of smokers who have turned to vaping as a -- dare we say healthier -- alternative to smoking will be faced with a new dilemma: returning to cigarettes.

It’s up to us to relay to lawmakers, local and federal, that vaping should be regulated -- but not banned.

White House - STOP THE BAN

  • I smoked for 25 years, my health was failing I had COPD and could barely breathe, coughing constantly. Two years ago thanks to baking I quit smoking cigarettes. I had not informed my doctor, she came to me asking if I had quit smoking because my health has improved so dramatically. Vaping is completely safe, I pass monthly drug test, my Dr is impressed by my COPD completely disappearing, and I am so angry that my savior could be taken away, forcing me back to chemical filled cigarettes to get the nicotine I ENJOY AND HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO USE, There is not ONE ingredient found in Vape juice that is not found in the food we eat every day. Oh, something important most do not know, Vaping is not even made to be inhaled into your lungs!! It absorbs through the membrane of your mouth and nose. So if you are only Vaping nicotine, it is IMPOSSIBLE TO CAUSE LUNG DISEASE!! Teens should NOT use nicotine, but believe me, I would rather my own child Vape then use chemical ridden cigarettes. You have to use common sense and stop listening to misinformation. These people getting sick are using BLACK MARKET PRODUCTS, take away FDA approved Vape juice, the number of people buying black Market products WILL SKYROCKET, in turn, the number of sick teens and adults will also skyrocket!!

  • I smoked cigarettes for 45 years. On July 17, 2015, my son bought me a vape pipe. Saved my life. My “son” saved my life. I no longer smoke. anything. My son vapes, but way less nicotine and I don’t want him to start smoking cigarettes 😥

  • I firmly support regulated supply & distribution of vape supplies for sale with all other tobacco related products in Australia.
    It is fraudulent industry activity which governments are answering these unscrupulous operators in address to all concerned.restricting their particular practice by impost of bans.
    Free market contention against the Australian government regulated pharmaceutical supply of CBD hasn’t been raised in arguments for the pending South Australia bans, only alluring advertising, age related unregulated online sales & in-house sampling of enticing flavors.
    Regulate supplies.
    Regulate distribution
    & ask users to take a acknowledged responsibility toward the potential adverse affects associated with their own usage & that of those interacting in the environment which usage occurs.
    Vape saved my health from the affects of the deadly chemicals found in tobacco.
    We don’t need boutique sales outlets, We need to adopt an industry supported equipment and materials conformity, whilst ensuring a quality of consumables & regulating supply outlets as with all tobacco related products
