AAPCC Issues Statement on the Introduction of the Child Nicotine Poison Prevention Act of 2014


ALEXANDRIA, Va. (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

The American Association of Poison Control Centers and the experts at America’s 55 poison centers are commending Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) for his introduction of the Child Nicotine Poison Prevention Act of 2014 on July 10, 2014. Along with fellow Senate co-sponsors, this bill urges the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) to enact rules requiring safer, child-resistant packaging for any liquid nicotine sold to consumers.

Senate co-sponsors of the bill include: Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY).

“I am introducing the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act… to prevent these unnecessary tragedies,” said Sen. Nelson during his bill introduction, and calling this “common-sense legislation.” Speaking at a press conference in Tampa, Fla., on Friday, July 11, Sen. Nelson questioned, “If we childproof other medicines, like (acetaminophen) and aspirin, why in the world wouldn’t we do this?”

Sen. Nelson concluded his Senate floor statements by requesting “unanimous consent that these remarks and the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2014 be printed in the Congressional Record.”

Also speaking at the press conference was Dr. Fred Aleguas, PharmD, DABAT, director of the Florida Poison Information Center – Tampa, who stated, “Poison Centers have had these e-cigarette products on their radar for a couple of years and have been investigating the concentration (levels) of nicotine products and found that the percentages were off by up to 50 percent. There is zero regulation for nicotine concentration.”

Dr. Aleguas continued, “It’s an important initiative to make these products child-resistant. The brightly colored- bottles, fruit flavors and the devices themselves are attractive to children and we have no idea what effects some of the ingredients will cause.”

“Our network of 55 poison centers is in a unique position to detect emerging public health threats, such as that posed by e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine,” said AAPCC President Dr. Marsha Ford, MD, FACMT, FACEP. “Data about every call made to a poison center are uploaded every nine minutes to the National Poison Data System. This near real-time data collection provides the AAPCC and poison centers across the country the ability to detect new threats and quickly notify appropriate authorities at the local, state and federal levels. Once a threat is detected, the poison center network is a vital partner in local, state and federal response efforts.”

On April 30, 2014, Vermont lawmakers approved an amendment to State Senate bill S. 239 requiring child-proof packaging on liquid nicotine containers. Effective Jan. 1, 2015, Minnesota will become the second state to adopt similar legislation as Minnesota Statute 461.20 goes into effect.

The AAPCC supports the nation’s 55 poison center members in their efforts to treat and prevent drug, consumer product, animal, environmental and food poisoning. Members staff the Poison Help hotline at 1-800-222-1222 that provides free, confidential, expert medical advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year from toxicology specialists, including nurses, pharmacists, physicians and poison information providers. In addition, the AAPCC maintains the only poison information and surveillance database in the United States, providing real-time monitoring of unusual poisoning patterns, chemical exposures and other emerging public health hazards. The AAPCC partners with federal agencies such as EPA, HRSA and the CDC, as well as private industry.

Orange flavor lovers, gotta a question

So awhile back I purchased an orange/cream flavor from a vendor that tasted a bit weak, so I mixed it with an orange/cream from MBV that had extra orange shots in it because when I first got the Ocream from MBV the O flavor seemed overpowering. Then I fell in love with the Ocream mix. Well fast forward some weeks and the O flav is now minimal in my concoction so I ordered the blood orange from MBV with xtra shots, mixed it with the existing Ocream mix I made before and Voila greatness again. Well FastForward some time and AGAIN the Orange flavor is so muted it doesn’t taste as good. Does anyone else have this problem? I take breaks and really only vape a flavor in small amts of time because I don’t like vaping the same thing for too long (too long like more than an hour for me), then I wait days and revisit flavors. If anyone else has experienced this (orange fading) any suggestion would be great. Thanks.

Smok Aro vs FBC.

Any thoughts? I have been a Kanger T3s/eVod vapor(once I broke free of the CE(I don’t know the model #), top coil, trap).

I have broken(as in cracked 100% thru, from the inside to the outside) 2 T3s’, and have hairline cracks in 2 other T3s drip tips. So far(vaping exclusively since Jan 28, 2014), I don’t use tank cracker juices.

Abstractly,I like the FBC(v2) for the cap over the drip tip, and ability to replace the tip if it gets broken.

For the ARO, I like what appears to be a metal drip tip, and smooth lines.

Anybody have both, and care to comment?

Hybrid Adapters

I couldn’t find anything using the search button about this. I’m looking at a hybrid adapter for my authentic copper vanilla with the brass top and bottom caps, and not sure if it would look funny just having brass on the bottom cap and firing button? Is there any performance benefit if it will still use contact pins?
