Call the White House: Tues, Oct 27 Arendtm October 21, 2015 Featured News & Events, News & Events, Related News Take action! Call the White House comment line at 202-456-1111 on Tuesday, October 27th and ask President Obama to stand up for our kids and public health by giving the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, and hookah. Talking Points – I’m calling today to ask President Obama to finalize regulations to give the Food and Drug Administration the authority to protect our kids and the public health from e-cigarettes, cigars and hookah. – Over 2 million kids are now using e-cigarettes, 1.4 million kids are smoking cigars and 1.6 million smoke hookah. There is NO federal oversight of these products and the companies are using candy and fruit-flavored products to target kids. It is past time to close the e-cigarette and cigar loophole. – [Insert a brief personal story on why this is important to you. It might be that you don’t want your kids to use tobacco products, that you are or were a smoker, or you just want to protect our nation’s health.] – Thank you. I hope we can count on the President to protect our kids from all tobacco products. You can also tweet @WhiteHouse using #NoTobacco4Kids.
