Looks like no free vape samples to reviewers among other things...

FDA does not consider this regulation to apply to businesses distributing free samples in a limited quantity (i.e., no more than necessary to achieve a business or market goal, such as awareness of and exposure to the product for the purposes of product or inventory selection) to another business as part of a genuine effort to sell or market a tobacco product to that business.


Most reviewers are a business, whether they admit it to their viewers or not. If you look in the info available under the videos, most have numerous affiliate links. Also, any monetization ads that show up on the video is considered income, and is subject to the taxes associated with a sole proprietorship.

We can only hope that Vaping sees a brighter future than current legislation shows.

And yes for the next several years at least China will keep on sending stuff.
Not as sure that reviewers will keep saying that they got it for free though...

I figure that a few are paid for the review in addition to the free sample...

On that note I'm thrilled to see the upflow of mtl gear.
Looks like some companies are returning a certain degree of focus on smokers rather than solely catering hobbyists.
