IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE LEGISLATION DRASTICALLY INFLUENCING THE VAPOR INDUSRY.
FDA ROCKS VAPOR INDUSTRY WITH SWEEPING REGULATIONS
The Food and Drug Administration this morning gave the vapor industry a rude awakening when it issued sweeping regulations that deemed vapor products to be tobacco products.

The 499-page document places all vapor products under the jurisdiction of the Tobacco Control Act of 2007. Under the changes, vapor products including e-liquid containing no nicotine, will be held to the same requirements. Numerous vaping advocacy groups have already denounced the regulations. The American VapingAssociation, in a statement, referred to the regulations as “downright prohibition.”
LAVA'S MISSION. UNITE. EDUCATE. PROTECT.
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” - Thomas Jefferson
