Legal Status Update – 1/18/2010

   Posted by: admin   in Healthy

The Federal Court slammed the FDA in a preliminary ruling on its court case regarding the seizure of shipments of e-cigs.

Essentially the court ruled that e-cigarettes are tobacco products that can be regulated by the FDA, and are not ‘medical devices’ subject to seizure under drug rules.

Meanwhile, the California Attorney General, Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown, filed his own class action suit. After all, the nicotine capsules are refillable, and extracts of other botannicals can be substituted. He may have gotten the idea from New Jersey legislators who included the e-cigs in its ban on smoking laws January 11th.
