Why Trump should Stand Up to the FDA and Deregulate Vaping

Since the beginning of his campaign, Trump has stressed on many key factors and his biggest call to action was that he would be a jobs man. Bringing manufacturing and service jobs into the USA is one of his main goals. The below article tries to see a few Trump policies in light of how the Vaping industry is right now. There will no political commentary or support or even opposition to the President and what he stands for.

The main idea that Trump tries to bring to the table for industries is that there must be more jobs for people to fill. He wants to do this by having to impose greater taxes, increase excises, imposing tariffs, and somehow make it more attractive for local manufacturing to be more profitable than outsourcing. Now, as it stands, the Vaping industry is facing a lot of trouble. The previous government left a lot of regulations for the vaping industry that could potentially hurt its manufacture in the country.

One such regulation is the one that was passed just last August by the FDA. If this recent development goes unchecked, the SFATA (Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association), a governing body for all products that are concerned with e-cigarettes, vape pens and the peripherals that go with them. The full SFATA report can be found here, and according to it, almost all, close to 99% of the products in the industry can be affected by it.

There are two main impacts that can be immediately noticed. First, there will be a loss of jobs across the board. It ranges from the very development of the products to the sale and manufacture along with marketing and related jobs. Second, there will be a sure impact on the health of vape pen and e-cigarette users. Vaping a has been proven to be a great way to reduce smoking and to prevent potential smokers from latching on to the habit. By removing access and cutting of choice in stores, people will turn to the more easily available traditional smoking habits.

The vaping industry is part of the solution when it comes to reducing tobacco products in the market. It does this by offering alternates that are safer, relatively healthier, and less environmentally damaging. The current law is a rewritten 2009 law that gives the FDA the power to treat vape products in the same way tobacco is treated. It also categorizes vaping under the same banner. Even vape products that contain 0 tobacco and 0 nicotine are under the same umbrella.

Trump's administration could look into this issue and overturn this decision and it will be a fair one as consuming cigarettes and smoking out of vape pens using e-liquids is not the same thing. Only time will tell if Trump actually does this or if the FDA does continue unchecked.
