Welcome to the second installment of our timeline in the saga of the FDA vs. electronic cigarettes. If you’ve missed part one, click here to check that out first, I’ll wait. Now, for those of you still here, when we last left the scene, we were mid-lawsuit. The legal action picked right back up in January 2010, so that’s where we will begin.
The Food and Drug Administration and electronic cigarettes have a pretty long and storied history. I’ve commented about the FDA and its attempts to ban and demonize ecigs pretty extensively. I’ve realized perhaps not everyone is intimate with the rocky road we’ve been down. I thought perhaps a little perspective on how things have progressed so far might shed some light and provide a little context for many of the things discussed in the community.
