Vaping In The News – April 30th – May 6th, 2017
Coordination with the FDA: Hartland, Wisconsin ~ Please Keep Smoking Award ~ Smoke Some More ~ Views & News On Cole Bishop ~ There’s A List ~ Coverup, Judicial Watch ~ Senator Johnson ~
Truth Initiative ~ Health aspects of e-cigarettes ~ Fergus Mason ~ Nicotine
Imagine for a moment that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has overstepped their authority in “deeming” anything to do with e-cigarettes.
Please Keep Smoking Award
State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, (D-PA) is the recipient of this week’s “Please Keep Smoking” award. Seems the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network likes to give out “awards” to keep people smoking.
Here’s her shameless self-promotion piece:
FDA: Please Keep Smoking More
The FDA likes smoking so much, they have an initiative to figure out how to keep people smoking under an “initiative” to pretend to get them to smoke “less”.
I thought the FDA’s purpose was to regulate, not initiate.
I covered “lower nicotine” and 22nd Century here in March of last year…
“The company’s cigarettes are part of an estimated $20 million FDA initiative to determine “the best method to quit smoking“
there’s more, as I predicted.
Views & News On Cole Bishop

There’s a list:
Open Secrets has this article highlighting the “Top recipients of contributions from the tobacco industry, 2016 cycle”
My pal DrMA asked them this question:
Covering up the obvious isn’t enough.
The FDA is batting 1,000 with non-answers – as if they were above the law.
With Former FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg under R.I.C.O. charges, Senator Ron Johnson being ignored last year asking the FDA repeatedly to produce documentation, and Hartland asking questions above, Judicial Watch has asked, through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) for – well – information.
Here’s their video on the matter.

Truth Initiative Whines & Brags
Skip is certain.
Here’s the whining & bragging:
This SURVEY is still going:
The Tobacco Harm Reduction Association of Canada (THRA) is conducting this survey for anyone – ANYONE to take. Smokers, non-smokers, vapers.
The importance of your voice is NEEDED.
Please take the survey HERE.

Remember, folks, “nicotine” is now tobacco.
People are usually interested in how long nicotine remains in the system because their employer wants to test for nicotine, either as a condition of employment, or more commonly to determine the cost of health insurance.
