Ex-Smokers Organize to Keep Electronic Cigarettes on the Market, Easily Accessible | CASAA

Excellent article out of Florida featuring CASAA President Elaine Keller.
But one person who didn't make it into that story is Elaine Keller, president of Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives (CASAA), which she says has 3,000 members. A consumer with no financial stake in the e-cigarette market, she met friends through the website ecigaretteforum.com, and they formed a nonprofit "when we got the message that the FDA was trying to ban the very product that helped us quit smoking." Keller, 67, who spent her career in computer-based education and as a writer for science research organization Battelle, said, "I smoked for 45 years, and believe me, it wasn't for lack of trying that I didn't quit earlier. Elaine Keller CASAA President Keller and her group mobilized people to attend an FDA hearing in Maryland in December, and CASAA's calls to action prompted 5,300 pro-e-cig comments on the FDA's website. Like many smokers who have converted to electronic cigarettes, Keller has trouble fathoming why the FDA would want to impede people from switching from tobacco. She cited a study that found carcinogens in e-cigarettes and said, "The guy who constructed this was very good at propaganda. Keller suspects the American Lung Association and the American Cancer Society "get funding from pharmaceutical companies that make stop-smoking products. Otherwise, their opposition is illogical. Keller says her group is "very much in favor of reasonable regulations. For instance, they would support measures like childproof packaging (so long as it was not too hard to open, because a lot of ex-smokers are elderly). Because of a quirk in the FDA regulatory process, Keller fears that the FDA could classify any product that was not on the market by February 2007 as a "new product," which would make it subject to a complex approval process. If newer, more sophisticated devices could not get to market, e-cig smokers - or "vapers," as they call themselves - would then be stuck smoking more primitive e-cigarettes, many of which lack the feel of real cigarettes, thus potentially driving people back to conventional cigs. Keller also fears that in its haste to protect children, the agency could ban flavored vapors.
