FDA Tobacco E-Cig Regulations
The FDA has proposed a massive, overreaching “tobacco” rule to impose expensive and burdensome regulations on small businesses in the e-cigarette, cigar and vaping industries. This expensive and time-consuming approval process would take 5,000 hours to complete and cost $330,000 per product – at minimum! This requirement alone would effectively ban 98.5 percent of all e-cigarettes on the market today. It would also devastate the 85,000 manufacturing jobs in the cigar industry. While large manufacturers may be able to afford the costs of this new regulation, many family-owned businesses cannot. Finally, while this rule claims to be a “tobacco rule,” the inclusion of vaping products proves otherwise. Vaping products contain no tobacco.
