Smoking is one of the most difficult addictions to overcome and each year kills tens of thousands of people and runs up billions in added medical expenses. One of the most successful methods to help smokers quit has been electronic cigarettes and vaping devices.

This industry has been misunderstood and recently the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has deemed that vaping devices, which contain no tobacco, and many times, no nicotine, are considered tobacco products, even with the recent study from the Royal College of l Physicians that estimated electronic cigarettes are at least 95% less harmful than tobacco products.

Due to federal and state regulations, many vape shops and related businesses will close and put an estimated 37,000 to 57,000 employees out of work. Not having access to the products that helped them quit will also force many back to smoking tobacco cigarettes.

A new movie called “A Billion Lives” outlines the history and the conspiracy behind large business concerns’ efforts to kill off the vaping industry. This movie is now premiering throughout the United States and the vaping community is standing up for the right to know the truth.

On Saturday, October 22, vaping supporters and the public at large will collect and hold hands for 10 minutes throughout the nation. At 2:22 p.m. in each time zone, vapers will meet at various locations to support this movie. This wall is a visual demonstration of support to save A Billion Lives.

We ask your support of the public’s right to have accurate information and a way to choose healthier alternatives.
