The TPD especially Article 20 has dire consequences for users, vendors,manufacturers of what is undoubtedly the most popular method worldwide of Tobacco Harm Reduction ie the bloody things work for a vast number of people and THIS is THREATENED
Without a definitive and long winded history of opposition towards the TPD, two campaigns have received modest support from the general public
EFVI http://www.efvi.eu/ which although now complete received 185,000 signatures (the totals continue after the expiry date) . From an estimated 10 million users across the EU this was disappointing.
Totally Wicked http://article20legalchallenge.com/challenge/
These figures imply that many of our European neighbours have either ignored this or considered it a UK only initiative with zero relevance to them .
Surely,in the absence of anything else to challenge the TPD WE all should be actively supporting the actions of Totally Wicked . 33,437 signatures of support (taking 5 secs) is mediocre at best . Let them walk into the courtroom with a minimum of 100,000 signatures of support to strengthen their argument .
Who else is mounting a very costly legal challenge from any direction?now is the time to put commercial expoitation fears and any past bad feelings (whether justified or not) towards TW aside.
Fatilistic or 'bury the head in the sand' approaches are not required - get supporting!
ps.. If you are still dubious, please read this excellent blog http://fdm.ukvaping.com/2015/04/why-we-should-support/ that is very persuasive
