CenturyLink Controversy!

Do we classify electronic cigarettes as a tobacco product or not? This has been an ongoing debate which has been the cause of a lot of confusion. Revised Code of Washington 70.160 states that the use of tobacco products is prohibited in most public places and workplaces and requires that smoking occur a sufficient distance from entrances, exits and windows. However, depending on where you live this rule does not apply to e-cigs.

We were recently made aware of a man who was attending a football game at CenturyLink Field and was kicked out for using his tobacco-free Smart Smoke device. The man was given no warning and was briskly escorted off the premises. For those of you who are unfamiliar with CenturyLink’s rules, they state that smoking and the use of tobacco are prohibited. This brings up the question, is vaping the same as smoking?

A couple weeks later he received a letter in the mail requesting that he enroll in an online Fan Code of Conduct Class. The 4 hour class is required of any guests who have been asked to leave the stadium for violations of their “Fan Code of Conduct.” Only after completing the course and paying a $250 fee would he be able to reenter the stadium. 

Without knowing all the details how do you stand on the issue? Do you feel vaping should be allowed in public? Let us know your opinion and we will sound off on this issue!

E-Cigarette Call to Action Survey

Friday, August 8th the FDA comment period closed, which had given electronic cigarette advocates a platform to voice their opinions on the proposed FDA ruling. The FDA has yet to announce when they will make a final ruling about e-cigarettes, which leaves more time and opportunities for consumers to state their countering arguments. The concern groups against electronic cigarettes have with pro-electronic cigarettes in this case, of which is certainly to be addressed in the FDA’s ruling, surrounds the way companies are marketing and advertising e-cigarettes to the public. They think that flavored e-cigarettes, especially, will attract children and non-smokers to their product and get them hooked on unnecessary nicotine.

Several General Attorneys from various states throughout the country are asking for the FDA to restrict flavors of e-cigarettes, as well as restrict the marketing and advertising campaigns as if the products were regular cigarettes. The attorneys state that if flavors are not limited to only tobacco and menthol, the result will be larger number of kids and non-smokers wanting to use e-cigarettes and try out the ‘fun’ flavors.

Smart Smoke e-cigarettes are made and designed for current tobacco users who are looking for an alternative to traditional tobacco. They do not allow the sale of e-cigarettes to persons under the age of 18, and will turn away anyone who is not a current tobacco user.

            The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA) is conducting a survey within the vaping community in regards to these topics. They wish to organize and collect comments and send them directly to the FDA. With this information, CASAA would be able to present strong data to the media and Congress in disproving the concerns set before them. Completing this survey will greatly help the CASAA bring more awareness of the benefits of e-cigarettes. When done with the survey, please upload it to any vaping circles you belong to on: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Reddit, or vaping forums.


If you would like to take part in this survey follow the link below, and post to your social media circles afterwards.


URGENT!! Fourth Call To Action For FDA Proposed Regulations

An additional call to action has been recently proposed by the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association. This is the fourth Call to Action they have implemented this year. In a battle to promote a positive change in the electronic cigarette market, CASAA has set out a plan which consists of several Calls to Action. These are tactfully written and aim to attack all sides of the issue.

This fourth call to action instructs people to assemble the content that was prepared pursuant to the first and second calls. Secondly, it asks to submit any comments written to the FDA.

CASAA’s goal is to make sure that everyone is aware of the FDA’s proposed regulations and note the two versions issued for this call to action. The first version was informational statements to assist people comprehend what was really going on so the Call to Action could be fully effective. The second and third versions were aimed at bring awareness to people who may not be conscious of the FDA’s proposed regulations and how they will be impacted.

Smart Smoke believes that it is important that as many people as possible take action. Together we can make a difference and show the FDA what they are doing is wrong!

Call to Action

After much deliberation, the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association, or CASAA, has issued their third Call to Action movement. This third call to action follows the previous two set by CASAA.

The first call to action, which is still currently active, asks for a response deadline extension. It took the FDA three years to release their 241 page proposed regulations, which only gave CASAA a mere 75 days to respond. CASAA is asking for consumers to request a 105-day extension of the comment period, requesting a total of 180 days to make comments. For more information on how to request the extension, please visit http://blog.casaa.org/2014/05/first-call-to-action-for-fda-proposed.html.  The second call to action, which has now concluded, was for consumers to comment on the Paperwork Reduction Act aspects of the proposed regulation.

This third call to action urges consumers to ask congress for oversight and investigative congressional hearings regarding CDC and FDA’s Bad Faith Actions in connection with e-cigarettes. These misrepresentations have been documented in CASAA’s testimony to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

In response to these Bad Faith Actions, CASAA has created a campaign that will enable people to directly contact an elected representative. By doing so, they can voice their opposition and provide a personal story about their current situation.

As with any call to action, it is important that everyone voice their opinions.  Together we can help put stricter regulations on the CDC and FDA so these actions will not happen again.

            CASAA is an advocacy group formed in 2009 by members of an online forum. The group was created as an answer to the anti-Tobacco Harm Reduction groups’ efforts to ban Tobacco Harm Reduction products and with the belief that there is strength in numbers. Today, CASAA has over 17,000 registered members. They are not a trade organization; they are a registered non-profit organization in Alabama. They coordinate activism efforts, raise funds, and develop materials, all with the objective of raising awareness and protecting our right to access reduced harm alternatives.

Thinking of making the switch? New to E-Cigs? Check out Smart Smoke!

Are you a tobacco user thinking about making the switch to electronic cigarettes? Are you over the age of 18? If yes, great – please read on, we have just the thing for you!

So, if you’re reading this, you must have heard about electronic cigarettes from somewhere – perhaps a friend was raving about them or you saw a picture of your favorite celebrity using one. Well, we can help introduce you to the “vaping” world and provide you with all of the information you need to get started today!

First and foremost, electronic cigarettes contain only the nicotine that you crave and eliminate the chemicals and tar associated with traditional tobacco smoking. There is no ash, no lingering odor and they can be used almost anywhere, as no smoke is emitted.

With nine models, over 25 nicotine liquid refill flavors and five different strengths to choose from, you are sure to find one that suits you.

Here are some Smart Smoke model comparisons for you:

 A SmartCart™ vs. SmartNic™ Model
Smart Smoke offers a number of models with multiple refill options to fit any smoker’s preference.

  • SmartCart™ Models utilize the simple and easy SmartCart™ refill system. A SmartCart™ is an atomizer and a pre-filled cartridge all-in-one. When the SmartCart™ is empty, simply throw away the used product and attach a new cartridge. With a new atomizer in every cartridge, you are guaranteed a fresh, full “vape” every time. No need to worry about diminishing atomizers or when to replace a failing atomizer.
  • SmartNic™ Models utilize liquid in which you use to refill yourself. This provides more customization to the user such as mixing flavors as well as a lower usage cost in regards to the cost-per-pack of equivalent traditional cigarettes.

Which is the best refill method?
The truth is no refill system is perfect for every user. Smart Smoke offers various refill options for our customers to be able to use the one that best suits their needs and lifestyle. Here are some highlights:

  • SmartCarts™ Refills
    1. Simple, easy and mess-free.
    2. Disposable atomizers for quick cartridge changes.
    3. Flavor refills available in 14, 18 and 24 milligrams of nicotine.
  • SmartNic™ Refills
    1. Offers the user customization of flavor (over a million combinations).
    2. As low as $0.79 per pack cost of use.
    3. Flavor refills available in 0, 11, 14, 18 and 24 milligrams of nicotine.

Automatic Switch vs. Manual Switch
Smart Smoke offers a variety of models with both automatic and manual battery switches.

  • Automatic batteries activate with the user’s airflow.
  • Manual batteries require a press of a button in order for the battery to activate.

Check out what some of our customers had to say:

“I just passed the 3-week mark without a ‘real’ cigarette. Smart Smoke has made this my most successful attempt ever. More impressively, my friend Don, who was a 2-pack-of Marlboro-REDS-per-day smoker just finished his third day without a cigarette, thanks to the Smart Smoke that he started last week because of my success. My sister has an Alpha on the way! THANK YOU, SMARTSMOKE! Hopefully all my family and friends will soon be smoke-free!” – Valerie A.

“So I dropped a line a few weeks ago saying that I was going to be trying chocolate and menthol flavors together and… wellllll… OH MY WOOOOOOOOORRRRRRD it is SO GOOD. It tastes just like an Andes mint, talk about YUM!! Just thought you guys should know that.” – CeCe E.

“I use smart smoke to quit tobacco products for my family. I have two children and a husband who despises the smell of cigarettes. I quit for them. No harm to my children and I get to vape all I want!” – Julie O.
