Dear Dr. Scott Gottlieb, MD, Commissioner:
A letter dated the 14th of June was sent to Dr. Scott Gottleib, Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from who I would call true Tobacco Control experts.
Do As You Are Told
Paul seems to have a distinct tone in his voice. I’m taking a shine to that.
Does the Gateway Effect Really Exist?
I had not seen this before. A stunning view of the “gateway effect” by Sallie Goetsch – standing the test of time.
Clive Bates – Short & Sweet.

Is Raising the Smoking Age A Good Idea?
Is the American Heart Association a terrorist organization?
“Sure, the AHA isn’t beheading people in the streets or strapping bombs on children. But that’s not the only way to be a terrorist organization, is it?”
GFN – Global Forum on Nicotine
Agent made this.

She changed it eventually and “scolded” me privately more than once – for using the one above…more than once…after it was modified.
Taking a life of its own, it was modified again and it now includes snus.
(Thank you Atakan.)

Ann, below with Greg Conley of the American Vaping Association at the Milwaukee premier of A Billion Lives, has sadly passed away.

It breaks my heart, as she was one of the first few people I followed early on Twitter (@agentania).
I, and I am sure like others, had oodles of messages and exchanges with her. Everything from Kitty2 and her view(s) on a variety of topics.
Like a secret agent, Ann did things behind the scenes and wanted no credit.
Her spirit, spunk, snark, fight and her love will never die and is in all of us.
As Shannon relayed for us above, we will
“NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S RIGHT“.
As DrMA says below, in loving memory.
