Save The Industry

As you have likely gathered from the FDA draft documents, our rights as vapers as well as the livelihoods of many working in the industry has been threatened drastically. We at the TVECA are committed to the preservation of the industry as well as our right to a vastly less harmful alternative to smoking. We all must unite together in this desperate time to make our voices heard and to refuse to be put out by the interests of Big Pharma and other special interests.

What We're Doing

We are currently engaged in talks with our legal staff as well as the FDA to leverage a good outcome to this otherwise vexing situation. We are utilizing every available source to counter-act the Substantial Equivalency date as well as other pitfalls. We are all working tirelessly to ensure that the industry stays alive and healthy for everyone involved.

What You Can Do

We appreciate any help we can get in fighting what may be a long and cumbersome legal battle in the near future. If you want to help us help you, any of the following will be greatly appreciated:
