The FDA has started down the road of controlling the E-Cig device. They consider any device that has a battery or power supply, on/off button, coil of nichrome wire, holding reservoir or wick to be a medication delivery device. Although the cannabis industry is not regulated by the FDA, the importation of the device will be. The FDA will enforce the importation of this device thru their friendly neighbor US Customs.
What does this mean for the cannabis industry ? This means that anyone wanting to import the E-Cig type device, into the USA will have to have a FDA license, and the device will have to be approved by the FDA as a medication delivery device.
Currently the FDA has set a date for this ban to take effect. whether this BAN actually happens on this date or not, does not really mater. The fact is, the FDA is going to regulate the device.
If you talk to anyone that distributes the E-Cig device, be careful of their advice, remember they have billions and billions of units in stock and need to get rid of them before they are banned by the FDA, if they don’t, they will take a huge loss. I can almost guarantee you they will say ” oh no, they will be around forever ” or something to this effect.
