Comment on FDA Regulation of Tobacco Products
The FDA has extended the comment period until December 28, 2009.

We encourage you to submit a comment expressing, for example: Your experience with e-cigarettes helping you switch to them instead of tobacco cigarettes; your dilemma of whether to return to smoking cigarettes if e-cigarettes aren't accessible; your outrage at the FDA's misrepresentations of scientific evidence about e-cigarettes; and/or your recommendation that the FDA redefine e-cigarettes as a new category of harm reducing tobacco product, and reasonably regulate them as such.
