THE IGNORANCE OF THE FDA.
The ignorance of the FDA over the last 12 months has been outstanding (not to mention the CDC's too, Team America F..... !). This is not however the first time the FDA's ignorance has risked the public's health and arguably cost lives. Ironic really considering they're supposed to be in charge of the opposite.
It seems even back in 1962 the UK was ahead of the game when it informed the world of the very real and very serious risks of tobacco use. The FDA ignored them.
Leading the way again in 2016, the Royal College of Physicians informed the world that Vaping is a vital tool in harm reduction and reducing global smoking relating deaths. Funnily enough, the FDA has ignored them and continues to ignore them 4 years down the line.
IT BEGS THE QUESTION, WHY ARE WE LISTENING TO THE FDA?!
It's a very real possibility that the way politics are governed and how lobbyists are permitted to be funded by Big Pharma or Big Tobacco, is the underlying reason why Vaping has faced such strong opposition in the United States. They continue to ignore the science from the UK, where Vaping regulations are the strictest in the world.
There might be a glimmer of hope in 2020 as Trumps administration announced the consideration of a separate body that would be in charge of Vaping and Smoking Regulations in the U.S, taking this responsibility away from the FDA. We can only view this as the FDA's complete failure in responsibly regulating Vaping in the U.S. I'll reserve judgement on this new organisation, it's not definite yet and it really does depend on who is appointed to run it. The corrupt Stanton Glantz's unscrupulous behaviour still resonates poorly within the Vaping community.
