Stop the malboros at the border not my e-liquid

Posted on Fri, Sep 12, 2014 at 4:00 PM

E-liquids are being stopped at the border and sent back. I received a letter from customs stating it is a drug, therefore cannot be imported. Where are the studies to prove they work and are safe? Because they do work. Granted you are still addicted to nicotine but that is far less dangerous than the alternatives available to us of experimental and intentionally useless quitting aids. It buys us time, literally. You are being lied to. There is no comparison between what is available and products outside the country. It makes one suspect that we are being set up to fail in our endeavor to reclaim our money and more importantly our health. Why is a border halt to these products easier to accomplish then a study or implimentation of standards that will permit these effective products available to citizens? Where are the standards that have been outlined for the Canadian nicotine juices? Limit the amounts of nicotine, childproof caps mandatory, restrict the ingredients to those approved in so many foods and medicines that we already utilize...if they do not already maintain those obvious standards. Perhaps even limit import to Canadian vendors to further guarantee age restriction. We should all understand what is going on here: this is suppression of a mild insurgence. Those that have the ability to assist (i.e stop inhibiting) us are not ready to divorce the revenue provided by the not only ineffective but far more dangerous/detrimental products and tobacco. It is a blatent but never addressed bias. It leads people to treat nicotine as the drug that has been suggested. They will make these liquids unsafely out of desperation, obtain it against the psuedo laws by other means and this action sends the unconscious notion (and presumably desired affect) that the cigarettes which continue to travel across our border are safer than these products. —Cough'n'kid
