FDA will require e-cigarettes and contents to be reviewed

The FDA knows from the chemical composition e-cig vapor and the smoking epidemiology that e-cigs are harmless. But it insists on regulating anyway.

From the WaPo:

Check out smoking vs. vaping chemicals.

You can smoke an awful lot of tobacco and still have a normal life expectancy, according to this NEJM study, for example.

  1. It’s obvious that the FDA is smoking the same stuff they use over at the EPA, and the IRS.

  2. My understanding is that e-cigs are not covered by the tobacco settlement. If that is the case, then the tax man has a very large financial interested.

  3. So inhaling aerosolized nicotine or burning tobacco leaves is bad/evil, but burning hemp products is good/possibly therapeutic. Got it!

  4. “Millions of kids….”

    “The Children” is always the cudgel of the fraudster.

    This is nothing but a power grab by the FDA, know-it-alls and world-improving busybodies trying to control the unfashionable behaviour of the lower orders. (It looks like smoking, even though it isn’t smoking, so we’d better control it.) That, and you also have to wonder if somebody is on the take from the established tobacco companies trying to weed out – no pun – threats to their market share.

    Just a thought.

  5. Like every good tyrant in history, it’s all about “the children.” Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, but is also wildly popular with the young people, especially once you take out the whole “cancer” thing.

    I heard the FDA spokesman say “we decided a long time ago that we don’t want our youth to have access to nicotine.” How easily they’ve changed bogeymen now that cancer is not in the mix.
