Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) Responds to Recent Vaping Advertisement
The Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association says, "The FDA, the government and elected officials have hired a famous movie director to scare our kids. That’s what he does in his movies - makes people afraid. Except our kids aren’t dumb - they know there’s no scientific proof of what’s in this commercial. Kids won’t be lied to. They know the truth about vaping and you should too."

"The FDA, our government and our elected officials hired a famous movie director to scare our kids. That’s what he does in his movies - makes people afraid. Except our kids aren’t dumb - they know there’s no scientific proof or sourced data about what’s in this spot. None. Watch the spot and you'll understand."
