Indiana House panel amends vaping law overhaul bill with new regulations

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana House panel has amended legislation targeting the state’s problematic vaping law to reintroduce certain regulations.

When it was first sent to the House, Republican state Sen. Randy Head’s bill effectively gutted the troubled 2016 law, which created a monopoly and sparked an FBI investigation. A federal appeals court also had struck down much of the law.

The House panel’s changes address e-liquid labeling, including requiring an identifiable, trackable code and a nicotine warning. The changes also include adding provisions on manufacturer reports, e-liquid flavorings and ingredient lists.

Changes discussed in a hearing Tuesday that would have mandated insurance and banned marketing products with cartoons were not included in the bill that advanced Wednesday.

The legislative panel voted 11-0 on the bill, sending it to the full House.

Politicians will do anything to thwart less smoking of actual cigarettes. That is their play money tree! The Mayo Clinic did a 3 year study and found that “Vaping” had the same amount of toxins as the air you breathe but somehow it still needs regulating by our corrupt idiot politicians? Our government is out of control…Doesn’t the constitution talk about what we are obligated to do if this is the case? How does regulating everything we do fit in with “by the people, of the people and for the people”? We are completely ruled in this country by these morons we keep sending to office. We need to put a stop to this!
