Your story

[A good way to start – keep it short]

Establish that you are an everyday constituent [say where], a consumer, and NOT a tobacco or vaping industry representative. Say what vaping has meant to you AND YOUR FAMILY. [This will provide a smooth link to the next paragraph if you choose to discuss ‘Children and flavors]

What we know about e-cigarette safety

Also, say something on how the ‘we do not know enough yet’ argument is a spurious one: That there is a great deal we do know about vaping: That we do not know about long term issues BUT IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THEY ARE NOT LIKELY TO BE MAJOR. In the meantime, those who continue to smoke will continue to suffer.
