“We support marketing practices that prevent usage of imagery or designs that infringe upon existing trademarks. We also believe that vapor products should never mimic food or beverage products- specifically ones that are marketed to minors. Preventing youth access to adult vapor products is one of our primary mission goals at ISFA.”- Amy Netherton, President

The FDA and FTC sent a strong message to 13 e-liquid companies for violating various sections of consumer trade and fraud. It is abundantly clear that these agencies will not tolerate marketing practices that are deceptive and specifically target our nation’s youth. At Indiana Smoke-Free Alliance, we are committed to protecting the integrity of the vapor industry here in Indiana. The adoption of the Vapor Technology Association’s Marketing Standards sends a clear message of the expectations we have for our membership.

You gotta love San Francisco, another over reaching legislation. San Francisco's continuing attempts to control their citizens rights for freedom.

“The city of San Francisco is dealing with many pressing problems, such as skyrocketing homelessness, a surge in crime and poverty, a tourism industry in free fall, etc. Yet, amidst all of these troubling issues, the City Board of Supervisors is busy playing nanny state, following suit of California politics. Recently, San Francisco’s City Board of Supervisors voted to advance an invasive piece of legislation that would ban smoking inside private dwellings located in an apartment with three or more units. The bill, filed on November 12, applies to smoking tobacco, vaping, and cannabis products. Not only would this overreaching legislation apply to private dwellings, but it would also include private patios and balconies.”
