As you all know we have had quite a few bumps in the road this past year. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to sell A Clean Cigarette products after September 9, 2020 due to government regulations from the FDA.
We are currently transitioning to new products that we will not be offering online. Please continue to visit us at one of our 8 Michigan store locations to see the new products that we have available! We are also open longer hours at most of our stores to serve you better.
We want to take this time to THANK YOU personally, it’s been our pleasure to serve you over the years, we consider you not only as friends, but FAMILY. Please accept our deepest apologies for this.
Attention all A Clean Cigarettes customers, friends of customers, loved ones of customers and everyone in between. We need volunteers for a series of A Clean Cigarette focus groups and product feedback studies for the FDA’s PMTA requirements. Which means we need YOU.
Well, remember all the upcoming moving and shaking I keep promising from the FDA. Even as people were celebrating some small wins we here at A Clean Cigarette understood that the fight had just begun.
Well, that fight is about to heat up. By heating up I mean HUGE costs and a ridiculous amount of information. All required by the FDA.
Now, most of that information is about the products parts, pieces, and components, but not all of it. Some of the information that the FDA requires is on things like public perception, focus groups, and customer interaction.
Since the start of all this FDA stuff, our amazing community of smokers and their loved ones have asked how they can help. We have been humbled and honored by how many of you guys that have reached out asking if there is something you can do to help us stay in this fight.
Unfortunately, for most of the stuff needed for the FDA’s PMTA (Pre-Market Tobacco Education), it’s all about lab tests and clinical studies. So there is nothing our amazing customers can really do to help. Not this time though!
This time it’s all about sharing your guy’s voices and stories. This is our chance to let the powers-that-be know, for better or worse, how A Clean Cigarette brand e-cigarettes have affected our communities and the lives of both the non-smokers and smokers that live there.
Truth is: Without you, we can’t do it.
If you are one of the folks who would like to have the FDA hear your story or who would like to help us in focus groups or market and community research now is the best time to step up.
Getting involved is easy. Some of the projects we will be working on are simple one-page type surveys. Others will require meeting at a predetermined location to participate in a little more in-depth observational studies. In some cases, there will be compensation available for fuel and travel time.
Whether you can participate in a larger project or only have time to fill out some of our upcoming in-store surveys. ALL help is appreciated.
If stepping up to the FDA and letting them hear your voice sounds like something you want to do contact us!

Regardless of which contact method you use, you are appreciated. Please be ready to share your name and contact number. Also, let us know if you would like to be involved in one of the more in-depth projects. Keep in mind we need a wide variety of opinions. So if you have friends or loved ones who would like to participate please let us know that too.
Friends and loved ones do not need to be customers of A Clean Cigarette to participate. Having a wide range of people will help us. We will need smokers, non-smokers, chewers, e-cig users and e-cig/nicotine non-users. Basically, we need everyone you can think of. Even if you use a different brand of e-cigarette, we need you.
As a smoker not only did I not feel that my voice stood for much. I also felt that since I smoked I was as good as written off by the world. That somehow a young stupid choice that left me with a life long addiction was basically the nail in my coffin and no one was interested in hearing me. I was left with 2 options. Quit and be miserable for the rest of my life, or don’t and die.
As the battle heats up with the FDA, now is the time that we as smokers, the loved ones of smokers, and the people who live in communities with smokers need to speak out loud enough for them to hear.
I look forward to hearing from you guys.
