“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”

Louise Ross: Pragmatism versus dogma
A pioneer (and someone I adore) speaks at the Global Forum on Nicotine, and Clive Bates covers it:
Global Forum on Nicotine
Here’s a subtle observation about #GFN20 each year. Those claiming to be “experts” have an open invite, yet are not speaking or attending to share their ‘knowledge’.
Those experts who ARE attending & speaking? I’ve never seen ONE of them proclaim expertise.
They just show up.
Here’s where it’s curated:
The Unlikely Savior
Smoking, nicotine and Covid-19: What is going on?
Maybe it’s simply because smokers are already forced to be anti-social by being put in smoking areas. Maybe it’s the nicotine, or some other constituent in cigarettes… either way – I know the tobacco CONtrol and anti-nicotine crowd have (depending on where you’re from) – their panties, knickers, or shorts in a knot about even imagining nicotine has a “good place” in the world.
That’s how I like to picture them: uncomfortable, scratching their heads and picking their asses, in public.
I’ll let Clive Bates take over from here:
Don’t Ban Today What May Have a PMTA Tomorrow
I’m not sure how many times I’ve said this: If you are IN this industry, you MUST have working knowledge of your local (and state) representatives (and opposition). You MUST be PROactive. You MUST be JUST as concerned about THEIR concerns and answer those questions before your 3 minutes at a podium ticks quietly by on deaf ears. Certainly, out of breath – I’ve covered these and more as a consumer, HERE: Vaping Industry Trade Associations.
So this caught my eye, and you, in industry, should read it. Your business, your choice. The deadline is looming, and I’m still rooting for you.
“It is reasonable for states and localities, which can often move faster than federal regulatory bodies, to regulate tobacco products in a way that suits their constituents.”
Helen Redmond asks an engaging question to former smokers. Consumers. YOU.

R.J. Reynolds Wants Out
I read this, and thought… this should be both fun and entertaining for the listener… after all, who could’ve predicted this?
Anti-Drug Warriors’ Crocodile Tears
I adore Michelle Minton. She wrote (among many things) this. This time she covers virtue signaling and disingenuous crocodile tears… from those who openly perpetuate the problem.
Just the title alone should’ve brought you this far down the page… It seems Professor Puff-N-Stuff in in need of a little ointment and of course, more funding.
No Flavour Gateway
Someone else said it again. They’ve got titles and stuff.
