    “With the attention of FDA regulators focused squarely on the supposed teen vaping epidemic and pod vapes like JUUL, a new action by another federal agency threatens to shut down vape shops and e-liquid manufacturers — and it may already be happening.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has quietly amended guidelines for e-liquid containers, and the changes could mean that millions of bottles of e-juice on vape shop shelves and in warehouses will be declared non-compliant and subject to recall or even destruction.

    The “restricted flow requirement” states that an opened bottle, when inverted and squeezed continuously for five seconds by a five-year-old child, must dispense no more than two milliliters of e-liquid. Obviously, no glass bottle could pass such a test, since the contents would flow out freely when the opened bottle is tipped upside down.

    On Feb. 20, recently appointed Republican CPSC Commissioner Peter Feldman issued a warning via Twitter (to his 97 followers): non-compliant e-liquid would be subject to an immediate stop-sale order."

    Wow what a weetard. All of my bottles are child proof and I find some of them almost impossible to open, they don't even leak either.
