So...you made the decision to stop smoking and start vaping. Good for you! So....maybe you are seeing some definite benefits and would never want to go back to cigarettes. You can do that, right? You have the choice, right? Well, there are forces at work that want to take that right away from you!! These forces are huge corporations and all size governments that stand to lose money, if you continue to vape. They don't want that!!! Far be it from them to be more concerned about your health than $$$$!
That's why it's vitally important to be an informed consumer. Below you will find links to organizations that will keep you aware of what's going on.
CASAA (The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association) is your first line of defense as a vaping consumer! It doesn't cost a dime to sign up on Facebook or get emails direct to you, although since it's an all volunteer organization, donations are GREATLY appreciated.

On occasion you will be asked to participate in calls to action. CASAA makes it so easy, that it generally takes less than 5 minutes to participate.
GSFA (Georgia Smoke Free Association) is your first line of defense as a vaping consumer in the great state of Georgia! The GSFA is a non-profit organization incorporating funds from vape shops, manufacturers, AND you the consumer. It is an all volunteer association as well.

The VTA (Vapor Technology Association) is the national trade association that is
executing a coordinated federal and state lobbying strategy combined with an integrated public affairs strategy to protect the vapor industry. It is a huge source of information as to what is happening on the federal level. VTA is more of a trade organization, but will often invite you to participate in calls to action. Vaper's Alley has been a member since 2016.
