Senator Ron Johnson Urges FDA To Repeal Ecig Regs

Last Summer Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to the FDA demanding answers. Senator Johnson asked the FDA several pertinent questions regarding FDA vaping regulations. He wanted the FDA to answer whether or not they would refuse regulations should the evidence clearly demonstrate that vaping reduces harm vs smoking. Answers were also demanded to the question of why over regulate if there is a lack of evidence as the FDA claims? Among the many questions though perhaps the most pressing was Johnson’s demand that the FDA answer whether or not they have considered that oppressive regulation will drive people back to tobacco. See Senator Johnson’s 2016 letter to FDA here. These are tough questions and...

Philip Morris To Launch IQOS In Korea. Heat Not Burn Trend

Here at ECCR we have been tracking the path of the P hilip Morris IQOS heat not burn cigarette for several years now. The IQOS is a better powered electronic smoking device that heats tobacco but does not burn it. What you do is take a cigarette and insert it into the IQOS which then heats the tobacco in the cigarette to the point of vaporization. Some studies indicate that vaporized tobacco reduces the level of harmful toxins when compared to smoking. As a result Philip Morris views heat not burn technology as a harm reduction tobacco product. An IQOS cigarette is not like a regular cigarette. The tobacco retains more moisture vs regular cigarettes. Regular cigarettes are...

Austin Texas Vaping Ban Confuses Vapor With Smoke

Austin, Texas is banning vaping everywhere that smoking is banned. That includes parks, restaurants, bars, government buildings, any public spaces. In a unanimous vote, Austin of 11 yeas and 0 nays, council passed the resolution. Just as with most vaping bans, the local vaping community was not consulted for input.

Council members simply decided to add e-cigarettes to the existing regulations regarding smoking. With that the Austin vaping ban became law. Anti-vaping lobbyists were present wearing “Austin Breathes Vape Free Air” t-shirts. A spokesman for the anti-vaping group said that...

In the latest study, we now know that more than half of the vapers in the UK have completely quit smoking. The 2017 Ash Survey in the...

The Envii Loch Ness 150 Watt Mod. Designed In The USA

This one came as a surprise. A very pleasant surprise. The Envii Loch Ness mod was the first Envii product that we have ever tried here at ECCR. I came across it looking for mods designed in the USA and indeed the Envii Loch Ness 150 watt vape mod is designed in Los Angeles. I noticed that Envii makes some very high interesting vape products. They have proprietary chip technology specially designed for smoother vaping. Intriguing, when you click their “About Us” page, all it says is “We are Envii. We are legion.” Well okay. Admittedly they did not give me a lot of background as I embarked on the Envii Loch Ness vape mod review. To be honest,...

And after I tell you about it I think you will agree with me and be on my side! First let me tell you about Evo E-liquids. I am thinking some of you may not...

What Fake Vaping News Teaches Us About Fake News

If you know anything about the electronic cigarette industry, you know that fake vaping news is everywhere. The vaping debate has made many of us rethink everything that we see and hear coming from our news media. A lot of fake vaping news has been exposed and debunked. Despite being debunked, the myths about electronic cigarettes have still managed to sink into public opinion. By an large, the anti-vaping propaganda put out by special interests has indeed been effective. I have long been a skeptic of the mainstream media and of all media for that matter. No, people can consume the media that supports their world view. No one challenges their preferred beliefs anymore and that’s a problem....
