Vapor Corp. Celebrates Recent Victory for Electronic Cigarettes
HALLANDALE, Fla., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Vapor Corp., formerly Miller Diversified Corporation (OTC: MILR), a leading marketer and distributor of electronic cigarettes is celebrating U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon’s recent ruling: that the United States Food and Drug Administration does not have the authority to seize electronic cigarettes because these products do not qualify as devices subject to the agency’s regulation. “This case appears to be yet another example of F.D.A.’s aggressive efforts to regulate recreational tobacco products as drugs or devices,” Judge Leon wrote. “Unfortunately, its tenacious drive to maximize its regulatory power has resulted in its advocacy of an interpretation of the relevant law that I find, at first blush, to be unreasonable and unacceptable.”
“Judge Leon’s ruling represents a victory for the electronic cigarette industry,” says Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor Corp. “We believe that Judge Leon clearly understood the issue at hand, and we couldn’t be more satisfied with his ruling. With no offensive second-hand smoke, our smokeless products offer a better alternative to traditional cigarette smoking, and a greener environment for both the smoking and the non-smoking community. Simply put, there is no longer a need for anyone to breathe the unwanted, second-hand smoke produced by traditional tobacco cigarettes. We look forward to continued growth of our business, and we will continue to comply with any and all applicable regulations as announced by the United States Food and Drug Administration,” Mr. Frija further states.
Vapor Corp., which reported revenue of $4.48 million in the nine months ending September 30, 2009, will file its annual results on its Form 10-K with the SEC within the next 75 days.
