Petition the FDA
Hey guys, so I found this petition asking the FDA to NOT classify Ecigs as tobacco products, and it seems to be doing really well, they've reached 15,000 signatures and the petition is only about a week old! Please everyone, sign it and pass it along if you can. Also there's an option to add a comment about why you're signing the petition, and I'm sure all of us have stories about how vaping has changed our lives. Here's the link:

And just for an example, here's what I put in my comment:

As a former smoker and current vaper, I can personally testify that e-cigs can change lives. By using e-cigs I was able to quit smoking and my health has benefited immensely. I used to wake up coughing all night long and always be out of breath, but now that I'm vaping instead I can actually breath easily, I can exercise without feeling like I'm going to collapse a lung, and best of all I can play with my nephews without getting out of breath. Vaping is a life changing opportunity for smokers to save themselves, and it also affects their family and friends who are no longer exposed to secondhand smoke. Ecigs might not be 100% safe, as more study is needed, but the studies that have been done already prove that it is a great harm reduction tool for smokers to stop giving themselves cancer in the form of tat in the smoke. The harm reduction alone is enough reason to classify e-cigs differently from tobacco cigarettes, because the truth needs to be shown to smokers everywhere: smoking kills, vaping saves lives.

Just enter your name + email and then SKIP the last step. I've just done it and we're very close to 50k mark.

For more information about vaping, e-cigarette legislation, to see various e-cig guides, tips and video reviews - visit EcigsUK Blog.

Vape, vape and vape again.... Wink3
