Watch Tony defend the vape industry and tens of thousands of jobs, while protecting vapers' rights.
Multiple appearances on one of the country's most watched business channels protecting vaping rights. Speaking to the benefits of trading tobacco smoke for e-cigarette vapor.
"Tony Abboud ... says there are plenty of non-regulatory reasons a company might want to use synthetic nicotine—its purity, for example, or freedom from traditional tobacco, with all its baggage and sordid history. But he concedes that the FDA authorization process has forced some hands. 'The process has been so convoluted and so opaque that, without question, it’s driven companies in this direction,' he says."
"Juul's application process involved nearly two years of submitting data and evidence to the FDA, WSJ reported, and industry leaders say its data was sound. 'If that level of science isn't sufficient, it begs the question of what is,' Tony Abboud told Axios. E-cigarette industry groups are calling on the FDA to go after bad actors that are skirting the review process."
