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 <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>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 <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>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 <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>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.

While the Hemp Top Silver was impressive, the Ramie Fiber is even more so.
While I only had a few scraps to try, it was enough to make me decide to order 8 oz of the stuff.
Keep in mind a generous bag of organic cotton weighs in at 0.16 oz.
So far with the scraps I had to work with, enough for two 2.1 ohm A1 Kanthal builds, I have been able to take it up to 12.5 watts kinda my personal max with a KFL+.
The stuff seems to outlast the point where I have to do a dryburn to get the gunk out of the coils and then I just go ahead and replace it while I am in there so to speak.
The wicking capability of the stuff seems to be OUTRAGEOUS to say the very least.
I have even gone so far as to empty the dregs out of the tank, replace it with a new flavor and after vaccum forms, within a max of two drags I am only getting the new flavor. 100% new flavor.
As far as Evil Uncle goes, he is just looking for something to floss his butcrack with.
But at least he seems to have developed an interest in some kind of personal hygiene after all these years!
Uncle RJ ; I tried the Ramie ( China Grass ) I agree completely The wicking properties are much better! I was getting very good vapor production with cellucotton I’m getting even more using the Ramie !! Thank you for sharing with me / us !!! This stuff rocks , understatement ! <img src="http://ecigfortmyers.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/bbd6f5753f_icon-lol.gif” alt=”:lol:” title=”Laughing” /> <img src="http://ecigfortmyers.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/bbd6f5753f_icon-e-biggrin.gif” alt=”:D” title=”Very Happy” />
My Ramie and Hemp fiber has arrived !!! In process of re-wicking my IGO with the Ramie , I’ve used Hemp before so I know those results , my opinion cellucotton I like better than Hemp ! I’m hoping the Ramie tops the rest . I’ll know in a while !?
[quote="masonlvvy" post=4101]Went to [url=http://www.ceecig.com/product/innokin_e_cigs_1.html][color=#ffffff]Innokin[/color][/url]s website and it says it’s already out but I can’t purchase from their site, tried fasttech and ivape and still nothing. Came across fairy-gift that has it for 45USD but I’ve never ordered from them before. Trust worthy or is there a better place to order it from? Thanks in advance
