Which way will the FDA move?
As we approach the end of October nerves are twitching for investors in US listed electronic cigarette companies, unsure of which way the FDA will jump. The European Parliament surprised us all earlier this month, will the FDA do the same?

Hi Mark, Welcome to TVF!

We can only hope TPTB in the US do see sense based on fact rather than handpicked snippets of negative propaganda. Of course, we all know the underlying motivations behind regulation of products such as e-Cigs so it's a difficult hurdle to overcome entirely. 

But with the recent EU outcome and the continued support from MP's and Government Officials within both the EU and the US, coupled with a strong campaigning presence from consumers. I do believe there is much hope which is sure as hell worth fighting for.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that unlike us Sheeple in the UK and EU.. the Americans will NOT lay down to be trampled and bullied by their government!

RE: Which way will the FDA move?
Hi

I agree totally with your comments and it was interesting to see that an FDA bid to outlaw ecigs just a few years ago was rejected by the courts. I think money/taxes are playing a major role in the regulatory debate although no sensible/responsible ecig user or company has any issues with clinical trials and regulations to stop minors getting their hands on ecigs.

Welcome to TVF, Mark!  It's great to have you here.

Part of me thinks it will never happen here in the States.   The other part of me fears that the unexpected could easily occur here.  I never expected obama to get elected let along re-elected yet here we are rapidly becoming a socialist country with the non-producing class apparently calling all the shots.  Things I never dreamed would actually happen here are occurring on a daily basis and it scares the hell out of me.

RE: Which way will the FDA move?
I have a feeling that the FDA is looking to flex its muscles so am not sure which way it will go. One possible saving grace is the freedom of choice movement in the US which could stand in the way of any major changes?
