This is Vaping In The News for the week ending September 23rd, 2017

😱 Scream Test

This reads like a desperate eulogy written by well seasoned & nearly extinct tobacco CONtrol freaks.

To shed light upon on themselves and their continued failure as “experts” is sadly amusing. I encourage one of you to send these idiots some flowers. Tell them to try harder. They can do it.

(Thanks to the authors!)

A “Frank Statement” for the 21st Century?

Scream Test Update

I would be remiss, and this would not be complete without Dick Puddlecoat’s explanation:

Scream Test Update

(My take is further down.)

DANA Statement: Australia

Drug and Alcohol Nurses of Australasia Incorporated (DANA) has released a statment. I don’t agree with “every” single part, but finally, some common sense – shockingly from the land of disbelief and fairy tales of Chapman & Freeman, Australia.

DANA Position Statement on E-Cigarettes


I’d like to introduce you to the Board I am proudly a part of.

Tobacco Harm Reduction For Life

FDA Warnings

More useless notices that won’t be read by anyone.

“FDA failed to present any data — much less the substantial evidence required under the [Administrative Procedure Act]…”

FDA to study warnings for cigarette packaging

Air Quality

The Centers for Disease Control did a test. Huh. Jim McDonald delves into what they did, or didn’t find… and won’t talk about.

What did the CDC find when they tested vape shop air?


No. Couldn’t be. Say it isn’t so.

Vrdolyak, associate collected $10 million in unauthorized tobacco fees, prosecutors say

Show Me The Money

Certainly there’s no conflict of interest here… CVS has committed $50 million dollars to get their way.

The American Cancer Society is now joined at the hip to help bully fund “tobacco-free” campuses and has “awarded” $20,000.00 to another campus to become nannies to adults.

Monetary grant encourages a tobacco free generation by The American Cancer Society

Gonzo Gives

What, you may ask, is Gonzo gives? Go ahead, ask. Meanwhile, I see frustration from many in the vaping community.

Then, I see this, and it inspires me.



They called this one “Juice monsters” here.

Tobacco Taxes

Since National Tobacco Day, this has been coming… if you didn’t believe it, it’s ready to go – and if you’re new here, nicotine is considered tobacco.

Jim McDonald, again, covers this eloquently here:

Senate bill would tax vapes and cigarettes the same

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World

Please indulge me in a bit of shameless self-promotion. I’d like to take a moment to proudly introduce my first submission to the Daily Caller & Daily Vaper. I was humbled, surprised and honored when I was contacted to submit to them.

I was also relieved. Why? The consideration was immediate. With 20 million possible eyes, and no pop ups, I’m in.

Instead of preaching to the choir, I hope their estimated audience of 20 million people might see what this blog has been trying to say for (4+ years) so long.

My submission on the scream test from above:

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World

Foundation For A Smoke-Free World

This is what causes tobacco control to pull their hair out. I’m enjoying the show.

You can see the website here : Foundation For A Smoke-Free World

Regulator Watch

ANY attention to any attempt to STOP the Food and Drug Administration to cease and desist is attention. Some disagree, some are supportive.

One may agree or disagree in the tactics deployed by any industry or consumer group, but to have egos in the way of progress towards what should be little to no regulation of vaping products, (industry manufacturing standards, no sales tax other than normal sales tax), one with half a brain would give deeper consideration to any efforts being put forth rather than dismissing them.

My deepest thanks to Brent Stafford from Regulator Watch for continuing to educate me as a consumer in what seems like an endless regulatory carnival ride.
