Senator Todd Kaminsky claims: “Vaping nearly doubled”.

propaganda.jpg


Senator Todd Kaminsky, (D) NY Senate District 9 has concluded a “discussion” last night, proudly and ambiguously stating he

“… held an expert panel to discuss the dangers of this newfound trend” claiming “Vaping has nearly doubled since 2014“.

“DANGER IN DISGUISE” is on the banner in front of the “expert” panel.

With obvious facts in hand, there wouldn’t be presumptuous assertions or a need to corrupt the crowd (of eager parents) with preconceived or contrived notions from an expert panel.


If it has “doubled”, good. Less smoking among teens, what’s the problem?

If it has, please, show your work to the class, Senator.


I’ll assume since Senator Kaminsky is “a leader on ethics reform & corruption” (referred to here), there would be no need for me to assume there could be broad manipulation or ommission of facts in this discussion.

No, I assume credibility & fact-checking was of the highest priority before the discussion began.



Now, different than the normal rhetoric, he didn’t say it doubled with the normally ever-present words like “youth”, “children” or “kids” in his post(s), instead, for the sake of my own sanity, “Think of the children™”, I’ll describe it as implied.



Assumptions

My assumption is he and the expert panel “are” referring to “children”… if anyone has video or a transcript to the “discussion” or data used, please comment below.


For those that care, keep up and are watching:

What I still can find is still the latest from the National Institute on Drug Abuse” via the “Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey” from 2016 found here:

For a second year in a row, the MTF survey asked high school students about their use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes).

Significant decreases in use from last year were reported by:

8th (6.2 vs. 9.5 percent)

10th (10.3 vs. 14.0 percent)

12th graders (12.4 vs. 16.2 percent).







I can only assume this will lead to another attempt to promote what is “Tobacco 21” or youth smoking covered here and here and here and here.

What I cannot find is “vaping nearly doubled”. If anyone has it, please link it in the comments below so I can publicly

  • Apologize publicly and directly to Senator Kaminsky
  • Correct the numbers so I can pretend I’m an expert!

I’ve said this before.

I’ll repeat it: “If “children” are *already smoking, they’re *smokers regardless of age. Think of the children™.”

I predict, as others have, rates among “kids” will go up in the next few years. I’m not against that.

“When tobacco use decreases, less smoking occurs.”

What I do know is “nicotine” is now wrongly classified as “tobacco”.

What I also know, Senator, is New York has top billing with the long-standing Master Settlement Agreement Ponzi scheme.


Ask the expert!

I encourage you to voice your questions or concerns on these matters on his public Twitter and Facebook accounts.


“T21 has potential to increase use rates through psychological reactance, and out of protest once the targeted demographic realizes their right to choose has been removed.”

“They” want tobacco to be restricted to adults, they want to restrict adults from tobacco, and e-cigarettes.

Could Tobacco 21 increase smoking rates?

Organized Crime Heads Applaud FDA’s Decision To Reduce Nicotine

money-laundering

 

When Dr. Gottleib, head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made the announcement to reduce nicotine and keep tobacco burning, health criminal organizations immediately applauded the plan to continue tobacco use.

Speculation over future profits is keeping some barely contained in their excitement.

Since the announcement to lower nicotine in cigarettes, health organized crime heads have rallied in support in the plan, some calling it a “game changer” between bites of cannolis.

“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
― Mario Puzo, The Godfather

The goal? Leave the nicotine, keep the tobacco.

That’s the important, and profitable part.

Loan sharks are circling the wagons, they want their money back.


 


manipulation

The Plan

For this to work, there must be a strong and unbreakable criminal network and respect for the groundwork criminal element already  established between the drug companies and public health, even if was before you were born, and specifically if you don’t understand it.

Everyone must agree that nicotine is addictive and dangerous. Decades of a foundational and profitable lie is at stake for everyone, even when nicotine isn’t addictive without tobacco. No one wants to be embarassed.

People could get hurt.

“There are things that have to be done and you do them and you never talk about them. You don’t try to justify them. They can’t be justified. You just do them. Then you forget it.”
― Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Dr. Gottlieb

He himself is a fan of tobacco. Big fan. Smoking promotion is big business when it’s technically illegal for tobacco companies to advertise themselves. The government does it for them.

I can’t imagine he read this opinion piece he linked, it was written by a history professor with writing skill and knowledge of a cat in heat, or at least worse than mine. Among other things, it stated:

“Smokers would be able to start or quit at will, without suffering the robbery of choice that defines addiction.”.

Keeping tobacco and trying to redefine it as nicotine, is a game.

He and fellow criminal, Mitch “Two-Butts” Zeller wrote a long and boring letter and *surprise*, it got published as gospel in the New England Journal of Medicine.

It does sound convincing.

“A nicotine-limiting standard could make cigarettes minimally addictive or nonaddictive, helping current users of combustible cigarettes to quit and allowing most future users to avoid becoming addicted and proceeding to regular use”


The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids.

“Let’s make it happen”

“Lets move forward” – note, take the nicotine out and consider the other EIGHT ways in tobacco, the ingredient they’re allegedly against in their “informative” and graphic below of the other acceptable ingredients that will remain untouched.

Michael Eriksen

As the Former Director – CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health, current Dean and Regents’ Professor, Georgia State School of Public Health and part of Tobacco Atlas, Mr. Eriksen believes “deeming was so important”.

The mis-step in this and other “assessments”, is to reduce the harm caused by tobacco would be, according to all the experts, eliminate the tobacco, not endorse it.

You think he’d know better, but nobody’s paying attention.

As tweets go, Mr. Eriksen can be “non-committed” and just report the tweet as if…and just quoting the story  – failing credibility is of no concern.


UCSF

With a broken cigarette, it’s “intriguing”.

 


Dr. Tom Frieden

#Skippy, the Former circus act at the Centers for Disease Control director and Former New York Mayor Bloomberg muppet – thinks continued tobacco use could save millions. It’s “important”. He’s trying to pretend he’s a rebel within by the subtle “If it happens”, and the clever hashtag #tobaccokills is almost as adorable as his efforts when he was in charge. Do as you’re told, #Skippy.

Speaking of Bloomberg

“The Editors” at Bloomberg calls it “A smart plan”. To promote tobacco.

Keep the tobacco. Catching on?

While I don’t agree that “people need to stop smoking” as stated below by the American Council on Science and Health, smoking is a personal adult choice, I am not surprised this is the only group making a bit of sense.

Despite my reservation, ACSH is standing alone as it speaks out against the criminal acts unfolding with what is known as common sense. They even went as far as stating nicotine is “harmless”. Finally, truth.

ACSH is the only one I’ve found so far.

Imagine that…

So far I haven’t seen the Body Parts Orgs™ (© David Goerlitz) say anything.

I’m waiting on the Heart, Lung and Cancer criminals to make their decision as to which way they’ll roll.


It isn’t like it hasn’t been tried before in 1989:

The ultra-low-nicotine cigarette is the latest entry in an increasingly feverish race among tobacco manufacturers to stop a decline of 2 percent a year in cigarette consumption in the United States.

Tobacco industry executives say the process of removing nicotine that Philip Morris used to create the Merit Free is similar to the decaffeination process used on coffee beans.

”It’s a pretty common, patented process that we’re all aware of,” said Douglas Keeney, chairman of C. A. Blockers.

Very Low Nicotine Cigarettes

Bold is my emphasis:

In summary, a toxicological analysis does not indicate that low-nicotine and nicotine-free Quest® cigarettes have less adverse toxicological effects in the laboratory than conventional cigarettes. This should draw the attention of the consumers and policy makers.

What is wrong with this approach?

Well, for starters – they’re promoting what they’re pretending to get everyone away from. So they can make more money.

Here is the company they are funding, and backing.

I did a bit of digging…..

Um… they’re suggesting PRESCRIBING smoking.

X-22 is the first and only smoking cessation product in the form of a combustible cigarette.

X-22 is a six-week prescription treatment which utilizes Very Low Nicotine (VLN) cigarettes (95% less nicotine than conventional cigarettes) to satisfy a smoker’s craving for cigarettes while separating the act of smoking from the rapid delivery of nicotine.

Red Sun

This is its American brand sold in more than 600 stores. It is a high nicotine cigarette. It might seem counterintuitive, especially given the health benefits claimed by its very low nicotine cigarettes, but high nicotine cigarettes could have significant health benefits as well.

X-22 has certain advantages:

  • It’s a cigarette, people seem to prefer that

  • It has no side effects, apart from the harmful effects of cigarette smoke

  • It has been proved effective in six clinical trials

Neal Benowitz himself said: (bold is my emphasis)

CONCLUSIONS

1. Smokers regulate their intake of nicotine to obtain the amount of nicotine that they need to sustain their addiction.

2. Spontaneous brand-switching studies suggest that there is no reduc­tion in smoke intake per cigarette, and that any reductions that are seen in brand switchers depend upon whether or not those individuals also reduce their cigarette consumption.

3. Studies of smokers smoking self-selected brands showed a weak rela­tionship between machine-measured nicotine yield and a smoker’s nicotine, CO, or thiocyanate exposure.

4. Considering the overall exposure data for individuals selecting their own brands, there is little reason to expect that smokers of low-yield ciga­rettes will have a lower risk of disease than those who smoke higher yield cigarettes.

That’s all here in

“Compensatory Smoking of Low Yield Cigarettes”


More from me:

The FDA can’t prove nicotine addiction or gateways exist.

Smell that? Tobacco Control Is Imploding.
