I liked the write-up on the Flavorah blog, it was excellent. I also liked the video here - it plugs Mt. Baker Flavor quit a bit, but this is the sort of thing that the government overlooks when they’re regulating vaping.
I was reading the FDA website yesterday, and found it rather hilarious that the warning they want on products that do not contain nicotine is “This product is made from tobacco.” I would love to see the software they have in mods doing this - MadeFromTobacco=yes would, admittedly, be a funny line of code. If this legislation is supposed to protect children, have they considered the response that teenagers will have when they see a battery or a stainless steel RDA that says “This product is made from tobacco”? It is categorically false, and if they see that they are being lied to about one thing regarding vaping, they will probably assume that any negative thing they hear about vaping is a lie (or exaggeration) as well.
The FDA regulations won’t be directly affecting me - I’m Canadian, but there will be effects here as well. If flavouring companies get their products deemed as tobacco products and choose to discontinue making them, DIY supplies here will dry up. Same with nicotine. I really hope that these Deeming (or as I like to call it, Demonizing) regulations get overturned.
