PAX LABS, the manufacturer of the Juul – BAD FOR THE VAPING INDUSTRY
I said it for years, PAX is NOT “one of us.” Pax manufactures the JUUL pod system device, which has been very popular with many vapers over the past year or so. All along I said this company was bad for our industry.
Our industry is made up of small to medium sized companies that will NOT be able to meet FDA requirements. The FDA regulations, as they are written today, will put over 90% of these companies out of business.
SO, any company that speaks in favor of the FDA’s deeming regulations, as written, is speaking AGAINST US. But, if I am not mistaken this is something they have said for a LONG time, this article just reminded everyone.
“We believe it’s to the benefit of the public that the FDA is regulating the category,” said Goldman.
Well fuck that, I can’t support that. The regulations, as written, will put almost the entire industry out of business.
I don’t blame them for wanting to comply, but to speak in support of such horrible regulations, yep, that is the issue I have.
What has REALLY gotten me is the fact so many passionate vapers in our community have spoken of the Juul like it’s gods gift to the world. Even people that manufacture competing products have posted endless “handchecks” and multiple social media posts. Posts talking about how their life is complete because they found a shop with pods for sale. Literally strengthening the enemy.
In my opinion, the Juul device is garbage. The draw is wonky, the charger sucks and the liquid available in the pods gives me a very strange, almost edgy type feeling.
