The Big Lie (Vaping, children, flavors)
Speaking of children – and linked here where I’ve amateurishly covered the biggest culprit of “advertising to children” – this came across my eyes and is WELL worth the read.
Think before you ban: The awkward case of e-cigarette flavors
I adore Chris Baxter.
He did his very own study, results were simple and within his tweet:
At last – A LONG-TERM #vaping STUDY.
Subject: Me (n=1)
Result: 7h 17m – 1.4% slower than 2013.

The American Cancer Society public health statement on eliminating combustible tobacco use in the United States…
Initially, from the American Cancer Society, this looks good on paper. Rhetorically I ask: Are they covering their tracks, or is this an admission of guilt…..
I’ll let you decide how genuine and contradictory it seems after my (bolding) hints:
“Many adults believe, erroneously, that ENDS are as harmful as combustible tobacco products…”
“ACS will provide smokers and the public with clear and accurate information available on the absolute and relative health impact of combustible tobacco products, nicotine‐based medications, ENDS and other novel tobacco products.”
“ACS will expand its existing tobacco‐control efforts and execute new comprehensive strategies to eliminate all combustible tobacco use”
Then, the contradiction:
So much for the earlier statement of eliminating “all combustible tobacco use”…
American Cancer Society Sees Zero Cancer Risk for Smokeless Tobacco
Speaking of the American Cancer Society grossly misleading consumers…….
Ya know… in 2016 I mentioned…. and predicted…
2014 Missing $$-Really bad!
2015 You're all going to die!
2016 May work-control/regs!
2018 DO work! Funding! Taxes!

I’ll let you bring your nose closer to the screen:
Given the US is gripped by a moral panic over JUUL, how to explain high school vaping rates:
2015 = 16.0% (before JUUL was a thing)
2016 = 11.3%
2017 = 11.7% (the rise of JUUL)

The elusive ‘epidemic’ of teen vaping
“Few health stories garner so much hyperbolic or uncritical coverage as the claim that e-cigarettes are a “gateway” to smoking. Any study or assertion supporting this claim is catnip to journalists.” Guy Bentley
Research Shows Vaping Helps The Elderly Kick Smoking Habit
I believe some in the industry (I’m not in) have lost their way or are only in it for the money. I know rigs with 50,000 watts of power will sell a gallon of e-liquid gold. While I’m not good with math, I also can approximate your profit on liquid (gold).
I’ve said this before and will link THIS blog each time older folks are mentioned.
The older crowd does NOT need to be intimidated or burdened with mods/clouds/bullshit and high end rigs… This is why changing coils and being cool is unnecessary to help a new vaper. Stop UPselling older people. If they want it, they’ll UPGRADE.
Something unintimidating, not complicated. They need things like cig-a-likes (Juul, MarkTen, whatever) or ego style kits FIRST.
They don’t need to have electrical / engineering degrees to switch. PERIOD.
Taste. Nic strength (and quit limiting nicotine strength!!!) and backups.
A Bad Deal With The Devil
Ah, yes… the Ponzi Scheme – from across the pond, no less. Mawsley IS awesome.
CDC Survey Shows Teen Vaping, Use of e-Cigarettes Continuing to Fall
What? WHERE are my new teen smokers I was promised?
If you don’t know who David is, now you DO. I’ll be joining him on the next and future podcasts. I’ll let him introduce himself. Please, bookmark, share with your smoking AND non-smoking friends, pets, enemies… etc.
Privacy In The Home Legal Fund
Yep, I know. Another fundraiser. Either way – this is about freedom. You can decide if you would like to donate on your own.
“Privacy in the home against intrusive government is entitled to an unparalleled level of protection….
It does not matter that the legal activity in question is smoking cigarettes or cigars and, yes, using *electronic cigarettes, or that the home in question are the apartments of public housing residents.
Have you done this yet?
Are you in the U.S.A.?
