Our media outlets were created for the purpose of providing easy access for members to news articles, alerts, scientific research studies, pending legislation and educational materials associated with the vaping industry.
We raise funds to promote advocacy, a proactive approach that is imperative for consumers and industry alike. We actively participate in dialogue with the public, vendors, media and industry advocacy groups to ensure our interests are heard and addressed at the state and federal level. We are dedicated to fostering communication, sharing reliable information and providing an outlet where F.S.F.A members and state agencies can engage in meaningful, truthful dialogue regarding public health and industry matters. We advocate on state issues that threaten the survival of the industry, provide informative resources, updates on state programs that educate and prepare industry participants to meet compliance requirements.

These are devices which mimic the smoking experience through vaporization of a special type of liquid. This solution is comprised of propylene glycol, nicotine and often a flavoring agent. Small amounts of it are vaporized when you draw upon it instead of burning like smoke from tobacco in a traditional cigarette. The process of “vaping,” as it is generally known by users, works through a battery heater known as an atomizer.
While nicotine is not entirely safe, these are often considered a healthier alternative to regular cigarettes. The majority of risks associated with smoking have to do with the carcinogens created by tobacco combustion and the tar that comes along with combustion. Studies have indicated that the illnesses and death associated with traditional products are from tar and not the nicotine itself.
One of the most comprehensive studies of the ENDS industry was done by the Royal College of Physicians. We highly recommend everyone take the time to review their findings. The ENDS industry has come to find that they are one of the most reliable and unbiased sources to rely on for information about vaping.
