BREAKING: FDA TO RELEASE THEIR REGULATIONS THURSDAY

Greg  Conley announced that the FDA will formally announce their deeming regulations tomorrow (Thursday).  After reading this article it seems the FDA will have very little bite in this first round of regulations.  They are setting the framework for future regulation.  Please take this analysis with a grain of salt.  I do not have an actual copy of the regulations. 

We will know for sure – soon enough.   Keep your fingers crossed.

Excerpt:

” WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration plans to begin regulating electronic cigarettes for the first time, banning sales to minors and requiring manufacturers to put health warnings on the nicotine-delivering devices that have become a multibillion-dollar industry, according to officials who described the agency’s proposal.

But the agency will stop short of steps that many public health advocates and some members of Congress have called for, including restrictions on television advertisements and flavorings, such as pumpkin spice or chocolate, that may target younger consumers, officials said. The agency plans to announce the new rule Thursday.

Regulators do not yet have scientific evidence for a rule on flavorings, but the subject is still being researched, Mitchell Zeller, director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, told reporters.
“There are far more questions than answers,” he said, adding that the new regulation would provide a “framework” for additional rules in the future.

Even without restrictions on advertising or flavorings, the new rule represents a “significant step in the agency’s ability to regulate tobacco products,” Zeller said. “I call the market for e-cigarettes the wild, wild West in the absence of regulations.”
