FDA NEWS RELEASE
Trump Administration Combating Epidemic of Youth E-Cigarette Use with Plan to Clear Market of Unauthorized, Non-Tobacco-Flavored
FDA compliance policy would prioritize enforcement of premarket authorization requirements for non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes
This news release notes that compliance policy would prioritize enforcement of the Premarket Tobacco Application ("PMTA") requirements.
This means that products that are not in compliance by the effective deadlines will be removed from market, that deadline is currently 5/20/2020. The FDA press release is concerning. No one knows yet the extent of flavors that will be affected. FDA has stated they will issue a new press release in a few weeks clarifying their intents.
At Nevada Vapor, we have been in the process of filing for our Premarket Tobacco Application ("PMTA") with the FDA for the past few years. Our products and ingredients have been submitted to the FDA prior to the set deadlines.
Along with other manufacturers, engaged a scientific consulting firm that is respected worldwide for its risk assessment experience, technical capabilities, and industry leadership who specialize in helping clients characterize the health and environmental risk associated with complex exposures involving chemicals, pharmaceuticals or radionuclides in a variety of media and environments.
In July 2019 FDA released the Final Guidance for PMTA. There is a lot yet for us to do and we will do everything we can to keep as many of our most popular products as we can.
Please read the Call-To-Action section below and help with as many as you can!
hare the information with your friends, family, and on social media.
We hope to supply you with your favorite flavors for many more years and sincerely thank you for all your support!

"If you have a Twitter account, tell @realDonaldTrump that flavored vapor products have NOTHING to do with recent lung hospitalizations. Those are linked to illegal THC "street vapes," not retail nicotine products. Banning flavors will force MILLIONS of adult FORMER smokers back to smoking and destroy thousands of small businesses and jobs!'' - CASAA.ORG

WE THE PEOPLE ASK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO TAKE OR EXPLAIN A POSITION ON AN ISSUE OR POLICY:
Stop Donald Trump from signing the federal flavor ban of e-cig products.
Vaping has saved millions of people lives with flavors being one of the major reasons due to their sweet flavors. We the people know that legal vape products that have been regulated are 95% safer than traditional cigarettes. Bans and prohibition has never worked, whether it is with cannabis or alcohol or drugs.

VTA Responds to Trump Administration; Calls Proposal Misguided
Gregory Conley, President of the American Vaping Association, released the following statement:
“We are deeply disappointed in the President’s decision to take direction from anti-vaping activists like Mike Bloomberg by attempting to ban the sale of nearly every vaping product on the market. A ban will remove life-changing options from the market that have been used by several million American adults to quit smoking.
“In the history of the United States, prohibition has never worked. It didn’t work with alcohol. It hasn’t worked with marijuana. It won’t work with e-cigarettes. The President should meet with just one of the millions of American voters who have used flavors to quit smoking before moving forward on this draconian approach to regulation and public policy.
“Destroying thousands of small businesses and sending ex-smokers back to smoking will do nothing to stop drug dealers from selling contaminated THC cartridges. A flavor ban will only lead to the creation of yet another multibillion-dollar black market that will operate with zero safety controls.”
