"Reps. Tom Cole, R-Okla., and Stanford Bishop, D-Ga., introduced a proposal that exempts thousands of vaping devices currently on the market from FDA approval. According to Reuters, the plan is to attach the proposal as a rider to a spending package to keep the government open.
All of this comes as Congress gets ready to confirm President Trump's nominee Dr. Scott Gottlieb to head the FDA. But there’s controversy there as well.
From March 2015 to May 2016, Gottlieb was a director at Kure Corp, a North Carolina-based firm that distributes vaping pens and e-juices in vaporiums – a coffee house-type setting for vaping. As of March 2017, he still had a financial interest in the company though he promised to sell his stake if confirmed."
