Hope is NOT a business plan....
The regulations WILL IMPACT your e-liquid company. You'll need to ADAPT ASAP if you intend to stay in business in 2017 and beyond.
The FDA is DETERMINED to regulate the vape industry in 2017. Those that don't adapt will lose. It's survival of the fittest.
E-liquid companies have the MOST TO LOSE with the upcoming regulations, followed by hardware companies, then distributors, then vape shops.
If your e-liquid company is generating more than $5 MILLION annual revenue, you have a lot of work to do in 2017. If you earn LESS THAN $5 MILLION you still have the same amount of work to do, but have more time to do it.
The effects will be felt all the way down the supply chain - NO ONE IS IMMUNE. Those that don't adapt will fail, and no one is going to do it for you. You MUST educate yourself.
