Dear Matt Myers, President of Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids:
I, as a citizen of the United States, would like to express my strong concern for your valiant efforts to keep Americans smoking, and your lack of participation or interest for invaluable e-cigarette research that has taken place in England and many other countries.
- Expert independent review concludes that e-cigarettes have potential to help smokers quit.
As you are involved with an organization having unstable credibility at best, you should be placing smokers’ health and well-being as the highest priority. Your lobbying and backroom deals for tobacco companies best interests involving the Master Settlement Agreement and the Family Smoking and Tobacco Control Act shows a conflict of interest dripping with corrupt activities.
The involvement directly related to the pharmaceutical industry has been misleading and deceiving the general public for many decades and “could be” not only detrimental to your reputation but also the notoriety of your affiliated associations and institutions.
When informed about the staggering evidence of tobacco harm reduction (4), and ease in which smokers are switching to a much less harmful alternative (5), to combustible tobacco, some organizations like yourself have immediately ignored any and all correspondence towards one answer, less harm.
Now that these connections are clearly established and brought to your attention, I call on you to to disengage from denying information to smokers in the United States, deceiving them with misinformation (6), propaganda like “Think of the children™“, and being the self-serving catalyst responsible for the 480,000 deaths per year from smoking from this moment on.
You, Matt Myers, are at the forefront and part of the cause of the tobacco epidemic that is crippling our communities and targeting the most vulnerable smokers from switching. You need to embrace your professional and well paid position of alleged authority and vow to no longer be involved with an industry which has fundamentally irreconcilable interests from public health and welfare.
I know I will slow this pandemic of tobacco to a crawl without your ulterior motives, effectively allowing adult smokers to make the choice to switch to a less harmful alternative with proper and educated information.
I hope that your participation in the highly profitable pharmaceutical and tobacco control “end-game” has just been an oversight, a simple misunderstanding all these years. I’ll expect you to rectify and remedy this immediately.
If not, it is imperative for you to cease and desist any and all tobacco control activities until you get your head out of your ass.
Without respect or regret,
