What’s worrying many vapers is that while the flavour ban doesn’t appear in the final version of the regulations, it wasn’t removed by the FDA themselves – the White House’s Office of Management and Budget took it out. There’s nothing to stop the FDA reinserting it after the law goes active on the 8th of August, so the end of vaping in the USA could be even closer than feared.

Times are changing....maybe the Canadian gov't will be easy on it - smoking pot is okay now...so maybe cannabis juice will be legal, just not blueberry or custard... Sad

As for my query on mixing supplies, specially nic - found a supplier in BC....no need to worry about customs or duty or anything...a tad more expensive but certainly worth bypassing the risk of having the nic confiscated or barred at the border...NicVape site was clear that export to Canada has come with problems and they don't offer refunds...

Glad you found a supplier, Fatboy. NicVape is good but if you'd have problems getting it then it's much better to buy local.

I found a place out of BC....slightly more $$$ but well worth not having to deal with customs....

this would not be the first time the US government banned a product that threatend the financial intrests of other companies .
in the 1800's the US gvernmen banned canabis and hemp in respose to lobbies made by paper mill and cotton gin owners claiming that the seemingly endles products able to be made ( including paper and fabric ) threatened their verry livelihood .

That's a good point Chuck. Ban anything that might hinder profits, that's our motto. Dash2

(just to be on the safe side, let's not mention cannabis again. We have a strict "No drug-related conversation" clause in the forum's rules. I know you were just talking about the hemp, but just to be safe. I'd not like to have to remove posts here.)

There's nothing new about this, profits over people.  It's just irritating.  I did some reading last night when I couldn't sleep and it does look like Aug 8 is the cut off for many products.

around 2000 flavored cigarettes other than menthall were banned in the US . it would appear that e-juice/liquids are destin to share the same fate .
how this is able to move forward with out indepth study eludes me . if test groups were to be studied comparing the helth of smokers , exsmokers using e-cigs and non smokers using e-cigs . they would find far more than there blanket hypothesis has revealed .
there are words for pepole who form belifes without supporting evidece , we call them bigots , or prejudice , or donald trump.

I wonder if flavorless eliquid would be legal under the new regulation. If that were the case, there could be a market for flavorless eliquid and then a shop next door with flavor concentrates to mix in.

What does this mean for the every day vaper who is not going to make their own juice? Are my vaping days numbered?

@keshazel this is a election year , a wonderful time when the people can bend congress to their will if only they yell loud enough . petitionin congres to intervene may be our best hope and acting when congress needs public support is just good strategy .
start a petition and drop it at local vape shops , send the colected signatures to your local congress . be sure to coppy the petition keep origional copies.
