SB140. I’ll jump on the bandwagon.
I’d LOVE to gloat. I’d love to put this pie in Mr. Leno’s face.
I’d LOVE to take Mr. Leno & Professor GlANTZ to breakfast and explain to them that their efforts are implying to others that this is tobacco,
only for their greed of contributions & funding as seen HERE.
Their efforts are costing lives. Their efforts are deterring people from trying to stop smoking.
MANY were involved in this particular bill. But I digress, as I often do in the vaping world.
What I see: It’s important to have taxes, but not for saving lives.
What Mr. Leno tweeted in January.
What I see: It’s ensuring that there’s taxes like tobacco, but not for saving lives and taking people away from tobacco.
What Mr. Leno tweeted in April.
What I see: This is a MUST position. Regulation is necessary!
It’s IMPORTANT! Imagine!!!! The next generation being lost to toxic nicotine!!!! CHILDREN!!!!!!!!
What Mr. Leno tweeted June 2nd.
What I see: Now there’s concern, with false statements that “children” are important.
What Mr. Leno Tweeted on July 7th.
THEN suddenly , Mr. Leno and various organizations find there’s no tax on tobacco, and it becomes unimportant and dangerous. Really????? Imagine that. Here’s just ONE example. Removing the ability to TAX e-cigarettes suddenly DEFEATED the bill?
It wasn’t about children. It wasn’t about addiction. It wasn’t about health. It was about revenue. Imagine the resources, cash & public FUNDS to go at this with such a fever, and then just let it drop. Imagine what every politician is doing when they’re “against” e-cigarettes.
Now that there’s taxes on e-cigarettes redefined and his way- suddenly it’s important again: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520162SB5
They’re coercing the public into believing their fairy tales for revenue. Legallly. Imagine the lives they are affecting in the process.
We have proof e-cigs are safer. We have science they refuse to recognize for their own agendas. Ecigarette-Research.Org
Vaping and e-cigarettes take us away from tobacco. Politicians & organizations like Breathe California are looking to replace funds from declining sales of tobacco.
““I no longer believe in it. None of my sponsors believe in it … I dissociate myself from it,” Leno said.
I want you to be pissed off this is happening in the United States. I want you to be pissed off THIS is happening WORLDWIDE
I want you to know M.O.V.E is also a great organization.
Consumers: I want you to be aware, look on the right & left of this blog. Join a group. Advocate and make some NOISE. Surveys. Polls. I want you PISSED off & well aware. DO Something.
Vendors: YOU have the audience to make a difference, or you are Guilty By Association.
This fight is NOWHERE near over. This is ongoing. Governments and Organizations. They support the following options. Taxing. Regulating. Restricting. Banning. Who benefits?
I want you STEAMING mad. I want you to do what you can. I contribute with this blog. Surveys. EVERYONE’S actions are important. I’m nobody. I do what I can. MANY do – We’re. Fighting For LIVES..
What’s it cost to vape? Great question. What’s your life worth? I want you and those who DON’T know any better yet to be ABLE to Keep ON #Vaping On.
