Advocacy is incredibly important to the vaping industry. Without consumer and professional advocates, vaping might not even exist today. With federal and state legislation becoming reality, advocacy is more important than ever. As a consumer, the single most helpful thing you can do is to go to www.casaa.org and follow their calls to action and take their advice. The Consumer Advocates for Smoking Alternatives Association makes it easy for everyone to get involved. Beyond that, make it a point to contact your representatives on a regular basis, and tell everyone you know to do the same. Keep up with NotBlowingSmoke.org, and gain some familiarity with some industry advocates such as SFATA and the AVA. These groups, many of which are largely comprised of consumers just like you, are the reason vaping still thrives today, and the only chance that vaping will survive well into the future. It’s up to you to do your part to protect this industry and your right to choose vaping as an alternative.
The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) is a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization with an all-volunteer board and a grassroots membership of more than two hundred thousand individuals from all walks of life, and we are growing daily. We are a consumer organization, not a trade association. We are dedicated to ensuring the availability of reduced harm alternatives to smoking and to providing smokers and non-smokers alike with honest information about those alternatives so that they can make informed choices.
