Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.
“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”

“The anti-vaping push from public health organizations is coordinated, well-funded, and tied to powerful entities in government and corporate America. According to federal data, however, there is extremely limited evidence of any ‘epidemic’.”
Consumer Engagement for GFN2019
From our friend, Jessica Harding:
“The theme for GFN2019 will be “It’s time to talk about nicotine” and it is vital that the people who use safer nicotine products are at the heart of that conversation.
The GFN organisers are keen to give an even higher profile to consumers and consumer organisations than in previous years and I have been asked to help with that.”
Stevens Point leaders update e-cig ordinance
The article states city leaders voted across the board to “make it more difficult to get e-cigarettes in the hands of teens.“
Now – it’s a fifty-dollar fine and possibly a court appearance if a minor is caught with one. Among other anomalies in the article (my bold/underlining for emphasis):
“Officers in Stevens Point previously had to prove if the cigarette had nicotine in it but it wasn’t possible to test in the field.”
Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t mention fines or consequences for cigarettes or the Synar Amendment.

TCAPS Will Install Vape Detectors in Middle, High Schools
Read this sentence, a quote from the video:
“Our goal here is to do more of a deterrent…not necessarily catch students…but deter students”
Now – if you must read it again…
I for one can’t imagine any kid figuring out how to get around this… and for the record, were there or will there also be “smoke” detectors?
Altria board approves $13 billion investment in e-cigarette company Juul
Imagine all the hard work and ‘investment’ put forth by Tobacco Free Kids to obtain this kind of coverage?
We Need to Reduce the Harms of Draconian Tobacco Policies
Nothing says “tell people what to do” more than telling people what to do and how not to do it – and getting paid to do so from those very people.
See, discrimination, embarrasment, fines, taxes, custody battles, imprisonment, executions… well, any means necessary to get people to do what you want them to do are clearly the best…
Wait a minute…
Via the well respected Marewa Glover, down the rabbit hole you go.
Federal Officials Obsessed By Teen Vaping, But Ignore Teen Drinking and Toking
Brad Rodu… you can’t ask for better.
Inspired by Brad Rodu’s blog above:
Today, I am declaring @JeromeAdamsMD @Surgeon_General is using his "bully pulpit" by abusing his position of authority to fabricate "research", directly misleading the public away from
"the best scientific information available".#FIRESGhttps://t.co/5Obdz4Grvz pic.twitter.com/kZC0tmUIno

He should be immediately fired and Gottlieb, who was with him at this event, should be as well. #FIRESG
