A potential more than 40,000-50,000 small business locations will be forced to permanently close and go out of business, along with an estimated more than 150,000-200,000 people potentially losing their jobs if vaping is banned in the entire United States.
The FDA recently denied the Pre-Market Tobacco Applications (PMTA) of over one million Vape Products that are NOT connected to Big Tobacco. However, the FDA approved or needs more time for applications of Vape Products connected to Big Tobacco. The FDA has also approved the applications of a few kinds of Cigarettes since 2019.
Big Tobacco is making its move to control the U.S. vape industry, no more buying 100 ml or 120 ml bottles of e-liquid. Big Tobacco wants there to only be disposables and pods, half the e-liquid for double the price. Disposables and pods that cause pollution from people littering them. Disposables and pods that the entire so-called youth vaping epidemic was blamed on, to begin with, are the vapor devices the FDA and Big Tobacco want to keep legal.
The United Kingdom views the way the United States handles vaping as bizarre. Nicotine vaping is an approved effective medical tool in the UK to help smokers quit cigarettes. Health ministry officials in the UK urge doctors to recommend to their smoker patients that they switch to vaping. The US and UK are opposites when it comes to nicotine vaping, as we said previously, nicotine vaping is treated as a medical tool in the UK, but in the US it’s demonized due to bogus and biased studies funded by cigarette companies and the pharmaceutical industry, along with billionaires such as Mike Bloomberg. Because of this, it’s preventing millions of cigarette smokers from making the switch to nicotine vaping and saving their lungs.
There are smokers who made the switch to vaping like myself who got their lungs tested a while after making the switch, and they had the lungs of a non-smoker! I switched to nicotine vaping about 10 years ago. I got my lungs tested on September 6, 2023, and the results showed I have the clear, healthy lungs of a non-smoker! I managed to score an 8.5 out of 10 on the lung capacity test! I’d never be able to do that while smoking cigarettes.

- Your vape isn’t leaching toxic metals! According to scientists who debunked the now retracted false study, a user would need to vape 100 milliliters of e-liquid in one day just to reach the daily legal intake limit of breathing in toxic metals. That’s a lot of e-liquid! Nobody is vaping anywhere near 100 ml a day, let alone 30 or 35 ml.

- Nicotine is able to improve symptoms of depression and reduce anxiety. Nicotine only makes depression and anxiety worse when a user stops using it and is experiencing withdrawal.

What about the nicotine from cigarettes? : NIH.GOV study.
