This was sent to us per CASSA. If we cannot get Cole-Bishop passed, there will be no vape shops or online stores. The FDA will have effectively caused prohibition on vaping. Call your representative today for your state!
COLE-BISHOP IN THE US BUDGET UPDATE!
Even if you’ve reached out to your lawmakers in the past, we need you to do it again. We have received word that the Cole-Bishop amendment is being seriously considered for inclusion in the FY2017 US budget.
But, this is not a guarantee. There are strong forces working against anything that might be perceived as a “Republican rider” in the budget bill. Even though Cole-Bishop is a bipartisan effort in support of what should be a bipartisan issue, the effort to modernize the predicate date for vapor products has been stripped out of the budget before.
Please take a moment to call your representative and senators in WV:
- Sen. Joe Manchin (D) – (202) 224-3954
- Sen. Shelley Capito (R) – (202) 224-6472
- Rep. Alex Mooney (R) – (202) 225-2711
Points to discuss on your call:
Urge them to support the Cole-Bishop language in the 2017 US budget bill
If the predicate date for vapor products is not modernized, nearly all vapor products will be wiped off the market in 2018. Many businesses will start closing down this year.
The FDA will still have the authority to regulate vapor products and common sense regulations like no sales or marketing to minors will remain unchanged.
If you have time, briefly, tell your story about how vaping has helped you.
When you’re finished with your call, visit www.august8th.org and send an email.

— Hands for a Billion Lives —
“Nationwide Community of ‘Vapers’ Joins Hands to Save Lives”
480,000 people in the US die every year from smoking related illnesses and a
A billion people are projected to die this century worldwide.
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.
