Altria seeks state review of tax policy on new ‘reduced risk’ tobacco products
So, taxing “nicotine” because it is “deemed” tobacco is to recoup taxes on losses of the government(s) from slowing sales of tobacco – and of course, they didn’t plan on cigarette sales dropping like they have, as a result of their irresponsible fiscal greed and inability to budget downward and out of existence, they deemed nicotine & e-cigs, components and parts AS tobacco so they can tax them and oh, I’m just babbling now — anywhooo….
Altria wants to reduce taxes on tobacco because it’s “reduced risk” tobacco. So, yeah.
Will we ever get the truth behind the FDA’s devastating vaping rule?
In case you missed it, it’s pretty clear…
Shocking cigarette development could change everything
And, because I’m your friend, I’ll include this, where the ‘ever self-important’ Professor “Puff-N-Stuff” wants to control the world, he’s put his worthless opinion in, added here for your convenience. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Host–agent–vector–environment measures for electronic cigarette research used in NIH grants
This one made me
laugh angry. In the conclusions from 2007 thru 2015:
“contributes to receipt and ultimately funding a greater proportion of grant proposals”
“lack of specificity about the e-cigarette product under study”
“authors needed to conduct online searches to determine the product type”
“Consequently, the universe of grant proposals in our analysis could reflect a bias of the funding agencies’ priorities and not the investigative community.”
“Could reflect a bias”… could, my vaping ass.
Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes
Well, for the most part…. there are consequences… and while it may take a while for you to go through it, I’ve got Jim McDonald, Carl V. Phillips and Michael Siegel below it to shed better light on it before you decide to click on the actual report.

Japan’s IQOS Experience Suggests Product Could Reduce U.S. Cigarette Consumption
Brad Rodu… any questions?
A Big Week For Tobacco Harm Reduction
Dick Puddlecote… Any questions?
I could be wrong…
I. As in me. I could be wrong. It’s happened…. anyway… 22nd Century has been touted countless times by organized crime syndicates about how excited they are for “lowering nicotine” in cigarettes. The FDA has said it enough for me to become obsessed with the success or fate of this company. I don’t “care”, but have watched intently as the idiots think it could work for smokers wanting to quit… I thought it was a shoo in, at least for the FDA to keep saying it.
Investors on the other hand…
Clive Bates and David Sweanor are both quoted within:
Vaping less harmful to lung fluids than smoking, study shows
Well, of course, it is.
Why D.C.’s proposed $2-a-pack increase in cigarette taxes is wrong
Smoking cost runs high in South Carolina
Lindsey Stroud states:
“not only is the Food and Drug Administration battling e-cigarettes, county health departments around the country are joining in the battle to “demonize devices that can help improve public health.”
Ellen J. MacKenzie, PhD, MSc, Dean of Bloomberg School of Public Health – Johns Hopkins University joined ranks by choosing financing and funding of their research to continue with taxes from smoking as they released this joint statement.
Since the Master Settlement Agreement commenced in 1998, I can only conclude – according to the Johns Hopkins University website stating “as a partner in a number of public health initiatives since its inception in 1998” that Dean MacKenzie (and the others signing) place funding via sales of tobacco via the MSA as ethical… but don’t trust themselves to do unbiased research despite the source of funding.
