Suspend Illinois SB3174 and Allow Distribution of Electronic Cigarettes

Bill 3174 Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Tobacco Accessories and Smoking Herbs Control Act. Provides that a product containing or delivering nicotine intended or expected for human consumption, or any part of such a product, that is not a tobacco product shall not be distributed or sold in the State or to consumers in the State unless it has been approved or otherwise certified for legal sale by the United States Food and Drug Administration as a tobacco use cessation, harm reduction, or modified-risk product, or for other medical purposes, and is being marketed and sold solely for that approved purpose. Establishes penalties for violations. We the undersigned demand that the Illinois Government suspends this bill and allows distribution in the State of Illinois.

    4 years ago Comments: Please ensure the safer alternative to deadly cigarettes remains a choice for those of us hopelessly addicted to tobacco, (thanks to past lobbying and "tobacco science.") Now it seems that finally a real competitor to tobacco has emerged that could save thousands of lives. The Big Pharma alternatives I tried first, and they did not work for me. Please do not take my freedom to use vapor and force me to use smoke to die. I have kids and grand-kids who love that I don't smoke anymore. They would see big brother taking my e-cig away as murder. Keep this alternative device a free choice for smoking adults who want to quit!! All ingredients are food safe, and compared to cigs 1,000% safer!
