What Trump’s FDA director gets wrong
“The FDA’s failure, to date, to acknowledge that e-cigarettes not only are safer than combustible cigarettes, but that they are much safer, results in confusion among would be consumers.”
First Clinical Evidence of Unharmed Myocardial Function in Vapers
Dear Professor Glantz,
Before you sharpen your pencil:
Data Driven Meta-Analysis
The wild, wild west of data driven meta-analysis just isn’t full enough yet – of meta-analysis about e-cigarette use. I’ve decided to go west.
Because data. Yep. I thought it was way overdue. Because data.
Via Michael Siegel:
Adam Padilla of “BrandFire” where the claim on their “about us” page brags of their approach as “creative and “It has the power to disrupt your competition”.
Mr. Padilla put out, on social media sites, a box showing a baby with “my first vape” on it.
It of course, spread around Facebook with ease – and on Twitter….
How interesting. This must have been it.

Jim McDonald also had his say on Vaping360:
Do you know about THR4LIFE?
New York City
With the Bloomberg regime off in the distance, the next generation of nannies want to pretend to lower smoking rates in New York City, or profit from those who keep smoking, regardless of the price.
Because of the failure of Bill de Blasio’s city to be fiscally responsible by budgeting what they have, he’s decided, and includes e-cigarettes… that less people smoking… paying more for public housing… for not smoking… is the plan.
Oh, except New Yorkers being smarter than he is, and of course the black market that doesn’t exist.
Firmly stating “We are sending a loud and clear message that we will not let their greed kill any more New Yorkers without a fight”.
Greed can be misconstrued by “imposing a new 10 percent local tax on tobacco products other than cigarettes” and raising the cost of cigarettes from $10.50 to $13.00 could never be classified as “greed”.

Here’s how their game plan “works” in writing.
Seems the plan isn’t working for compliance, or is it?
In my (highly acclaimed by me) opinion, as the age of purchase was 18, they are having a difficult time keeping their percentage at acceptable levels, and now want to raise it to 21 to recreate the problem.
If they raise the minimum to 21, they create a whole new class and “infringement rate” – and in the process, create more funding to do what “they’ve” already allegedly done.
Suddenly, in California, bad laws create bad people and relevance for tobacco control. Now they will “need” more funding to fight “it”.
The rates of “underage sales” failed 50%. They quietly (not to me) created more “problems”…
This is exactly what they planned. More “self-created” problems, more job security to “fight” it.
More proof that “laws” don’t stop “children” (redefined as 18-20 year olds as well) from tobacco use.
Sheriff’s report of the same:
If there were only more 18-20 year olds like this:
“most e-cigarette experimentation does not turn into regular use, and levels of regular use in young people who have never smoked remain very low.”
Hi all!! VapeExpo has been cancelled in UP, all because of the efforts of MOHFW and civil society. Kudos to all 👏🏻👏🏻 India not accepting U! pic.twitter.com/ejnbe6cluT

Aside from taking exception to “Thus, the statement that e-cigarettes are addictive is true”, I actually was pretty impressed with this article from Alex Berezow and the American Council on Science and Health.
Last week, Christopher Snowden had a few words to say another idiotic statement from Stuff-N-Puff Glantz and “big tobacco”:
“This is the David and Goliath delusion on crystal meth. “
This week, Ruth Malone has more to contribute. SURPRISE!
Then, with his knife resharpened, Christopher Snowden took another stab by appropriately lunging at Ruth:
I fixed the final thoughts for her.
I’m torn between considering Stan a punching bag or a punchline.
Time to make the donuts.
Do you know about NNA?
My favorite subject.
