LOS ANGELES, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Champs Tradeshows is set to host the largest East Coast Counter Culture and Vape Expo at the Atlantic City Convention Center. West Coast Vape Supply specializes in ejuice wholesale, ejuice retail and vape hardware and vaping supplies to over 7500 vape shops and smoke shops worldwide. They carry a wide range of premium ejuice and the latest vape hardware. West Coast Vape Supply specializes in selling direct to mom and pop stores nationwide (B2B) and wholesale to the public (B2C) with their eCommerce website and iOS and Android Apps. West Coast Vape Supply will be featuring the release of the newly released Deadmodz 180ml eJuice line, Granny's Pie Peach Cobbler eJuice, Ninja Man eJuice and all new 210ml Dripstix eLiquid Strawberry Moon and Menthol Tribe 60ml by Vapetek.
The event is timely given the new FDA Regulations the industry is facing. Vape shop owners fear new FDA regulations may shut their doors. West Coast Vape Supply believes the FDA has overreached in its regulations in the fact that they're classifying electronic products as tobacco products. "Our product has nothing to do with tobacco. Nobody in this industry likes the new regulations and everyone I know that has quit smoking and now vapes is upset about it."
Under the new regulations, the FDA now requires vape shops to register as tobacco manufacturers.
The new regulations include requiring all products - new electronic cigarettes, vaping liquids, and nicotine levels - to be approved by the FDA prior to hitting retailer shelves, a costly venture for many small businesses.
Each item would require a separate application to be approved, a costly venture for any small business owner. The FDA estimates each application will cost $300,000, some industry experts believe those numbers are much higher and could be $1 million or more.
West Coast Vape Supply is currently working with SFATA which is the largest and leading trade association in the vapor industry. SFATA represents the interests of the non-big tobacco supply chain, including manufacturers, online retailers, brick and mortar vape stores, vape wholesalers, vape distributors and importers.
A new trade organization led by Chris Jimenez a director of business development at one of the leading merchant processing firms for ejuice and vape hardware products has formed: California Smoke Free Organization (CSFO) which will be holding its first organizational meeting on May 26th, 2016 in Fullerton, CA. Their goals are to bridge the gap between the vapor industry and the government, interview and hire state lobbyists, develop new relationships with public and state elected officials, fund political campaigns, participate in writing new laws at the state level and influence public reception.
"This is our industry's opportunity to demonstrate to governments that vapers are demanding obstacle-free, healthier choices, and to help smokers abandon tobacco products," said Alham Benyameen of West Coast Vape Supply.
