Vaping In The News – A Ruckus – September 14th, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


What a week. There was a ruckus. Allow me to try to describe the ruckus.

10 September:

Gazillionaire Bloomberg announced he was spending spare change found around in a cup holder in his car $160M on an initiative with Tobacco-Free Kids to ban flavored e-cigarettes.

Mutual Admiration Society [MAS] member and World Health Association (WHO) useless idiot “Director General” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus — pissed all over himself applauded the effort to ban flavors.


11 September:

Then, President Trump meets with Health & Human Services puppet Alex Azar found here and here. Azar proudly left the meeting announcing he will be “finalizing policies that will clear flavored e-cigarettes from the market”. He reiterated it again here.

This opportunity didn’t go to waste. This was a well-timed advantage by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to capitalize on deaths in the U.S…. a bit of momentum.

After all, this wasn’t about products that are used daily by millions who have switched to a less harmful product. This was about illegal black market Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-containing products that use similar devices as vaping products.

Funny, ha-ha, because on September 9th, the FDA themselves had already released this statement.



What was that ruckus about? Manipulation. The opening presented itself, and “public health” wasted no time to nail a spike through advocates hearts, strengthening their effort to shut down an industry who’s goal is affording smokers choice and opportunity of a less harmful product.

The truth does come out – this, in fact, is illegal black market products they should’ve been focusing on – but it’s too little, too late for some. But there is more to this.

Then

Trump – for some reason, changed his mind – and tweeted it. Not completely, remember – Azar was “finalizing”… meaning those plans were already in process.

Either way, a much #louder ruckus I and others have tried to figure out how to create for years, Years, YEARS, has reared its pent-up frustrated ugly head nationally – and done some good. In the process, it created a momentum of its own.


#Louder

I can’t find a direct link to the statement(s), but saw calls to the White House opposing this decision overwhelmed the switchboard with wait times and busy signals.

Things I saw:

Gregory Conley (American Vaping Association) is front and center on CNN (here and here).

Paul Blair (Americans for Tax Reform) on Fox News Live WITH Matt Myers of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

Tony Abboud (Vapor Technology Association) professionally explains the industry stance here on CNBC Squawk on the Street



I, as thousands of others, have tweeted my sentiments to President Trump. After all, they lied to his administrative face.


Meanwhile

Cherry – who’s just getting started in her journey as a consumer………

is making everyone aware of New Jersey… and another circle is complete with a fresh voice, a sharp eye, and inquisitive, educational spirit. I needed to see that.


Along with Cherry, Michael McGrady is reporting about

The Cries (and Lessons) from Michigan


I tried to describe the ruckus

What I witnessed were spectacular moments over the past week. I saw a shift in the “vaping community”. I saw what seems like the largest national momentum by industry and consumers I’ve never seen. Lets keep that up. This battle is FAR from over.

There are people from the industry going to Washington this coming week. I am confident they are beyond adequately skilled to voice the professional position(s) of their members.


Here’s a thought

If you aren’t supporting one idea, support another. It is, after all, your choice. If you don’t think something is being done “right”, be inspired to create something better.

You can call the White House at 1-202-456-1414.


This alt value should not be empty if you assign primary image

An idea from Bill Tarling: Snail mail. What if everyone reading this blog spent 10 minutes and .55 cents – and mailed a letter to the White House in opposition to a ban. Imagine being inundated with thousands of letters? You can’t delete paper.

Just to keep it fresh in the President’s mind.:

The White House

Attention: President Donald J. Trump

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20500.


Oh, and there’s a consumer driven march on Washington being planned as I type. United Vapers Alliance. More is coming on that.

The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA) has (now updated) a release:

Vaping and the MIC with Kim Shilling.

This is well worth listening to Kim Shilling as she discusses the Michigan fiasco.


E-cigarettes: Smoke & Mirrors

This video gives me hope that critical thinking may still be lurking in the United States.

With Dr. Sally Satel, Dr. Roger Klein, and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller.


Speaking of needing “treatment”.

Surprise! Pfizer sponsored research has found they need to fill a need because you need their product as “treatment” to cease vaping product use.

This gem is in the text. Bold and italics are my emphasis.

There aren’t antismoking treatments for people who smoke only electronic cigarette (single users) or electronic cigarette and classic cigarette (dual users). Surprisingly, there aren’t data available in the literature on smoking cessation intervention for this specific disease group …

I’ll allow you to proceed:

Efficacy of smoking cessation with varenicline plus counselling for e-cigarettes users (VAREVAPE): A protocol for a randomized controlled trial


For posterity

In the spirit of having a record of informing readers now, and years to come, I will point out the wording is impeccable for propaganda, and the press was asking great questions. However, I will link the CDC transcript, and their inability to have any tangible findings, here

Transcript of September 6, 2019, Telebriefing: Investigation of Pulmonary Disease Among People Who Use E-cigarettes


Michigan Governor Declares Cigarettes Safe

I understand the cringing. There were a few uneasy about this (my) blog because the Governor of Michigan didn’t actually say or “declare” cigarettes are safe.

Now, think of the never-ending, non-stop, click-bait (three hyphenated words in a row is a record for me) articles you see, read, get tagged by your friends, and millions share daily. That are not true.

Nope, she didn’t ‘say’ or ‘declare’ cigarettes are safe, but it was implied. Call it tongue-in-cheek, call it satire.

She isn’t banning cigarettes, therefore, cigarettes are safe.

Vaping In The News – June 8th, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


Is There a Role for E-Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation for Patients With Cancer? ~ The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence? ~ RCM Supports Vaping ~ Teen vapers are using eBay to dodge age restrictions – And cigarettes, too ~ How Big Is the So-Called Teen Vaping Epidemic? ~ The American Liars Association ~ Gang Related ~ Flavor Bans Are Good for Smoking


Is There a Role for E-Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation for Patients With Cancer?

I’d like to ask the question: Is there a reason this is a question?

Is There a Role for E-Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation for Patients With Cancer?


The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence?

I’ll quote our friend, the great Alan Beard concerning this next one:

Very fair and detailed analysis here regarding the differing approaches in the US and the UK

Clearly pointed out : “…competing priorities determined what counted as evidence…

The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence?

Teen vapers are using eBay to dodge age restrictions – And cigarettes, too

Imagine the ability of children™ to illegally obtain things they are not legally allowed to possess purchase. We can’t blame eBay alone, I’m sure there are parents who are unaware of secret groups and sites all over the internet to gain access to illegal things. Illegally.

Teen vapers are using eBay to dodge age restrictions – And cigarettes, too


How Big Is the So-Called Teen Vaping Epidemic?

This isn’t the Surgeon General, certainly it is not the Food and Drug Administration explaining the “epidemic”. Instead, Dr Rodu does. Again.

How Big Is the So-Called Teen Vaping Epidemic?


The American Liars Association

I adore the play on telling the truth with words.

The American Liars Association


Gang Related

While much more troubling issues are in schools, people choose to forget “reefer madness” or choose to ignore it.

Gang Related



If you want to scare parents, think of Elvis. Loretta Lynn. George Carlin. The PMRC. When parents look for an excuse – any scapegoat is acceptable, really, except the children™ . Except the parents. When looking to change perceptions, you arm yourselves with children™ , duck behind them and aim directly toward anyone willing to be shocked and dismayed.

DON’T blame the children™ – and whatever you do, don’t blame the parents. {Insert other smart-ass comments from me here}.


Flavor Bans Are Good for Smoking

When someone stops smoking, food not only tastes better, sense of smell improves. The olfactory nerves from taste to smell are in overdrive within a few days. 

You could take my word for it, or see their examples they themselves ignore:

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


Kids Under the Bus, Vapers Down the Slope

This, a thought-provoking article I wish I had written. I’ll ask the question again: “At what age is a smoker considered a smoker”?

Go on, read about fascism, Tobacco Control. Never look away.

Kids Under the Bus, Vapers Down the Slope


Tobacco Sales to Kids Is a Problem For States, Not Retailers

“The simplest route to obtaining age restriction compliance seems to be FDA pressure for stronger state enforcement, rather than agency action against retailers or product categories.”

Why is “the” industry NOT talking about this? Current laws. Synar Amendment. Scapegoats. Sheep.

Tobacco Sales to Kids Is a Problem For States, Not Retailers


Brick walls can be used to bang your heads against… or you can talk to them all you like.


Public Misunderstanding of Health Risks is “a Good Thing” According to Some in the Tobacco Control Movement

Again, perception. TALKING about this. PUBLIC perception. Legislative perception. Talking heads. YOUR business.

“Telling the truth is a core ethical value of public health practice. But maybe not so much in tobacco control.”

Public Misunderstanding of Health Risks is “a Good Thing” According to Some in the Tobacco Control Movement

David is facing some lung procedures shortly, updates will be coming soon.


California:

Fig Ramsey has graciously shown quite a few “snippets” of what industry is facing in California including this idiot Phillip Gardiner.


Why the Next FDA Chief Shouldn’t Block Alternatives to Cigarettes

Dr. Gottlieb has decided to leave his position as Commissioner of the FDA.

Why the Next FDA Chief Shouldn’t Block Alternatives to Cigarettes


Scott Gottlieb wants more smoking before he leaves.

(“Lower nicotine” is covered by me here and how much the “public health” groups organized crime supports it, here.)

-Meanwhile, below – and before he leaves, he wants to be sure his legacy includes more combustible tobacco.

From the above article: “The FDA should be allowing private solutions that reduce the amount of cigarette smoking, not leading efforts that would help maintain it.”

Yet here we are.


Reynolds just rolled out berry and cream nicotine lozenges

Because I can never get enough…. and because it’s there:

Reynolds just rolled out berry and cream nicotine lozenges


Lozenges are to be banned in prisons.

As a footnote, I’ll include this for your entertainment but will use my “do not link” effort because I despise the Daily Fail.

Vaping In The News – February 16th, 2019

Thanks to Mike Peterson for the graphic!!!

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The Arrogance of Public Health Advocacy ~ Vaping Taxes ~ Vaping Hit by Double Tragedy ~ Respiratory Study Fail ~ Surgeon General Watch: Data, Snippets, and Narratives ~ Vaping in the Mic


Researchers Try Nicotine To Treat Memory Loss

More positive involvement using the word, (and the chemical) “nicotine”. This is good. This makes people who know better nervous. Excellent. More research I say! Think about it… if kids thought nicotine is good for you, they would avoid it like… oh never mind. I also secretly hope there is a use for those patches taking up shelf space.

Researchers Try Nicotine To Treat Memory Loss


Federal Communications Commission

Speaking of “The Children™”, ‘one’ Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants to stop less harmful products being advertised because of no other reason: “even if they are targeted at kids”.

Meet Jessica Rosenworcel. Jessica is an “Impatient optimist. Mom, wife,” and of all things an “inveterate coffee drinker.” Huh.

The responses to her are in this link


Kristen Noll-Marsh has a question. (Click to enlarge).


Brendan Carr, also Commissioner at FCC, thinks otherwise.


Dr. Gardner has the answer for the children ™ :


CDC Misleads by calling E-cigarettes a ‘Tobacco Product’

No kidding. Already established abroad, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has incorrectly defined…. oh never mind. I am grateful for the American Council on Science and Health taking this on.

Vape Radio

Vape Radio has had a fundraiser up for about a month. (I completely missed it!) In my opinion, Rod and his team are like this blog. They get the word out. They contribute to and talk about advocacy. They’re #LOUDER.

The Vaping Legion had him on here last week. If you are able to contribute, wonderful, If not, please share.

The Arrogance of Public Health Advocacy

Let’s see… covered misleading, covered the children™. How about some arrogance? Are you like what is described as the “average American” who is “resentful toward those who tell him or her how to live”? So am I.

This is an eye-opening perspective from a Doctor, in proper form:

The Arrogance of Public Health Advocacy


Vaping Taxes in the United States and Around the World

There should be no tax imposed on a less harmful product. Period. I say NO more taxes on cigarettes OR vaping products, but they’re doing it anyway.

No stranger to my blog, Jim McDonald writes for Vaping 360, and is one I admire. He took on vaping taxes around the world:

Vaping Taxes in the United States and Around the World


Vaping Hit by Double Tragedy

From across the pond, Dave Cross (another I admire) at Planet Of The Vapes has taken on the task of informing our community of two heartbreaking deaths.

Vaping Hit by Double Tragedy

Also see his Respiratory Study Fail


Surgeon General Watch: Data, Snippets, and Narratives

As we slip into the third week of my one-man #SGWatch on Twitter, I took a harder look at what Dr. Adams says, and does, on his personal account – and what he doesn’t on his professional account as U.S. Surgeon General. Oh, and confusion. A general mess. That’s covered as well:

Surgeon General Watch: Data, Snippets, and Narratives


Then, because Mike started it, I spent over an hour on the 34th episode of Vaping and the Mic (and even showed my face) to discuss snippets, narratives and data…

Are you paying attention?

Censorship of information and policy, funding interests behind the scenes to fit a controlled narrative of non-profit organizations (of any issue) is clear.


Brent Stafford works very hard with Regulator Watch Canada to disseminate fact from fiction with Michelle Minton here in the U.S.

I, and thousands have been saying this for a very long time.


State of Public Health: Failure

Similar to what I hope you watched just above, I searched for “positive” statements from “health groups“. It took me a substantial amount of time to find them. It makes me “feel and believe” they can say they’ve “said” it, they’re just (unsurprisingly) very quiet about it.

#SGWatch

On the 5th of February, Surgeon General was quoted below saying nicotine is “pound for pound, as addictive as heroin”:

Then, on the 7th I see this. So far during my ‘one-man’ Surgeon General watch I’ve linked my challenge, Aaron Biebert has asked Dr. Adams politely for an interview, and the thread gets more interesting by the day.

For the record we’ve gone from a definitive statement of “pound for pound, as addictive as heroin”, to “a medical viewpoint-& it’s complicated” in two days.

At least it isn’t about feelings.

This thread gets longer by the day.

Vaping In The News – February 2nd, 2019

#SGWatch: “1,300 people a day“.

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

Vaperatti: Lawsuit for the Win, Ban Opposition for the Loss

The ‘fight’ seems to be consistently putting out fires.

The definition of nicotine as tobacco (it isn’t), Nicotine addiction without tobacco and MAOI’s (it isn’t), and gateways (that don’t exist). If you’re interested, opinion

Speaking of listening

Dr. Charles A. Gardner, Director of Health Science and Technology, has an interesting take on listening to (*gasp*) us!

Researchers must listen to Vapers


FDA knew stop smoking product clinical trials not science-based

What? Really? Why I thought…. well…. never mind.

FDA knew stop smoking product clinical trials not science-based


You Don’t Know Nicotine

Speaking of #nicotine, a new film in the works “You Don’t Know Nicotine” is already very close to it’s initial 1st goal with 296 supporters. This independent film has (so far) raised $44,612, and is now featured as a Project We Love” by Kickstarter.

This is about all aspects of nicotine.

To find out more, here’s the link: You Don’t Know Nicotine.


Children in vape shops

While understanding the ‘concern’, I put this photo under a tweet of Dr. Gottlieb expressing his concerns for children.

To my surprise, and her arrogance, I see this.

More here in her tweet, including followups in this link

She’s seen toddlers and teens inside in vape shops (not necessarily buying products). If the parents were smoking, those toddlers would be exposed to… oh never mind. After looking, surprise, she did a study I’ll link with my standard ‘do not link‘.

For a perspective, this blog has mentioned concerns of air quality before:

At: Ice arenas , indoor motocross events, with Clive Bates at a vape convention, and of course, this vape shop.

Laundry products… Scented Candles, idiotic tweets…

Senator Burr (R-NC), much more than menthol cigarettes

Senator Burr takes the Food and Drug Administration to task – from menthol cigarettes to the “tobacco control act”, to children unable to purchase adult prodcts, to adult choice and… well, I won’t spoil it for you, but I haven’t seen a Senator fired up about this topic in some time.

I HIGHLY suggest you watch this (34 minute) video…

…or at least read an article!


Unacceptable Behavior by Tobacco Control Researchers

I barely believe tha….. never mind.

Unacceptable Behavior by Tobacco Control Researchers


In Case You Missed it

You can nod in agreement here with the Surgeon General

Dr. Gottlieb states: “e-cigs can help currently addicted adult smokers quit; and improve their health.” You can see the study here.

Or Jim covered it here. Dave covered it here.


Time Flies

I realized yesterday four years have passed since releasing the results of the Vaping Truth Survey. Thinking of Charle’s blog above and listening to vapers… After all, we’re supposed to take their word for all things health, why can’t they take ours?

When I made the survey, I barely knew a soul and didn’t know there even was a ‘vaping community’. I appreciate anyone who took the survey, I appreciate all who were behind it from the start.

Little did I know – four years later, we’re still trying to Change The Conversation.

Dr. Gottlieb: E-cigs CAN Help Smokers Quit And Improve Their Health

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Food and Drug Administration

Dr. Gottlieb of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tweeted “e-cigs can help currently addicted adult smokers quit; and improve their health.” If you had internet connection issues yesterday, it may have been jolting shocks of horror from ‘experts’ seeing what he tweeted.

This isn’t the first reference to less harm, Dr. Gottlieb has passively stated in the past: “If you could take every adult smoker and fully switch them to e-cigarettes, that would have a substantial public health impact”. He’s also stated:

“E-cigarettes may present an important opportunity for adult smokers to transition off combustible tobacco products and onto nicotine delivery products that may not have the same level of risks associated with them.” (Source)


That’s pretty big news no one is hearing over the incessant chanting from others. If a “substantial public health impact” is a goal, Dr. Gottlieb will have to speak up. (I can barely hear him.) How about, oh – I don’t know, maybe a press conference with a mandatory presence of the alleged “health leaders” for a start.


Source

Dr. Gottlieb will have to speak up if a “substantial public health impact” is a goal:

In the four years (hard to believe, today) since the release of the results of my consumer survey, I have finally seen a credible and official statement saying “e-cigs can help currently addicted adult smokers quit; and improve their health.” from the Commissioner of the FDA.

This isn’t a secret. No one is listening. It’s something consumers have said all along.

Link

Not only did he tweet those words, he also tweeted a follow-up about improved health.

Link

I can’t be so arrogant to believe these tweets came from my urging, but I was shocked to read what Dr. Gottlieb said. Maybe he isn’t using his (this is funny) mute button! I’m skeptical, he’s at least tweeted it – with a comment about improving health. Twice. Vape shops are not permitted to say that. In my book, it’s better than a poke in the eye.

I can’t ask for… Wait, if the goal of reducing smoking is the goal, I’ll expect much more.

In my excitement, I mistakenly linked the Surgeon General from his personal account on a few nudges. However, I included him in other tweets in his “official” capacity. So far, no reference to this new study has been made from his personal or official account.

No “health group” has mentioned Alex Azar’s statement below. This information is NOT foreign to Dr. Adams or Dr. Gottlieb. They were present when U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar spoke these words:

Quote is at 3:35 on this video

No surprise

Those ‘experts‘ I referred to above? The horror must’ve made them leave early to grab their favorite flavored Starbucks coffee. With Gottlieb making a statement like he did, I was eager to see if the American Heart, Lung, Cancer, or even Tobacco-Free Kids may, might, or could have mentioned it.

In conducting a quick general twitter search for the article link and found –ZERO– mentions from those organizations front groups. So much for a public health impact.

If smoking is “the single largest preventable cause of death and illness in the world”… and all “health” organizations are about health,  and improving health, then why does my pal DrMA below need to raise awareness of their omission a day after Gottlieb’s statement …

Picking Up Momentum

Tammy and others went all out:

Link

Our friend James Jarvis did as well.

Link

I’m in the middle

The headlines are wonderful, the truth is the average number of attempts for a smoker to stop is 30. The success rates of gums and patches are about 7%. The average success of e-cigarettes is 70% (low end), or more, and they know it, government funded research proves it. Downplaying it, giving it no attention isn’t informing the public. That doesn’t improve health.

Change The Conversation

It’s time for public health and politicians to make a decision:

They want less smoking, or they don’t.

They want less harm, or they don’t.”


CALL THEM OUT

If making public health a priority and “improving health” is their goal… With all we do know, EVERY single township, official, city, who have regulated, restricted or banned 18, 19, and 20-year-olds from less harm and choice should be questioned – having an opportunity to explain themselves.

EVERY news outlet should be screaming about improving health with e-cigarettes, and interviewing every single township, official, city, health group and expert in the area who restricted or banned those choices.

Consumers (like me) take it upon themselves to blog, tweet, write their representatives out of passion and conviction. If I’m doing it wrong, I’m willing to learn.


This just happened. At least that’s what I heard.
This is 2019. (“Hi, Fig”!)


These are the types of thing you may not be aware you, as a business, giving smokers a healthier option, are up against:

Original Tweet

Sometimes I pick my battles carefully.

Careen is responding to my “Vape Shop” photo. I imagine she’s being engaged with. Link.

It’s time for vape shops/industry to make a decision as well.

I know, love, and respect some business owners who are fighting by themselves for their customers, and future customers, either through a local or state industry organizations. If you’re not aware, you’re not doing yourselves any favors.

If you are in business giving smokers a healthier alternative to smoking and don’t change the conversation quickly with local, state and national lawmakers…… ahh, who am I to say what you should do. After all, it is your business.

I would read about this (here and here, or listen to this man and act accordingly with any representatives about youth, adult choices less harmful products, and more here:

You Don’t Know Nicotine

Award-Winning Filmmaker

Award-winning independent filmmaker Aaron Biebert is on the move again. He and his core team are ready to get to work on his new ground-breaking documentary, “You Don’t Know Nicotine”. In just four days, momentum is building quickly towards the first goal of funding this new film.


It isn’t a question, it is a statement.


“You Don’t Know Nicotine”.


On the Kickstarter page, Aaron asks:

  • How does nicotine actually affect developing brains?
  • Are there any benefits to adults who use nicotine without smoking?
  • Who’s covering up the truth about nicotine, and why?

Updated 1/30/2019: “Thanks to you, our project is currently the #1 most popular film project on Kickstarter!”


What they say

Varied statements of nicotine being as addictive as “heroin and cocaine” have been made for decades. They don’t just say it, they are assertive about it.


Action on Smoking and Health quotes Dr. Gottlieb stating it “rivals the addictive power of heroin and cocaine. For teens, it is particularly risky” and it “can rewire an adolescent’s brain“.

Action on Smoking and Health

The Centers for Disease Control say nicotine is a drug that “can harm brain development, memory, and attention“.

Centers for Disease Control

Cliff Douglas, “Vice-President Tobacco Control, American Cancer Society, and faculty, University of Michigan School of Public Health” states nicotine leads to changes in the brain.

Cliff Douglas

The Food and Drug Administration says – like heroin or cocaine, it changes the way your brain works.

Food and Drug Administration

The Surgeon General says nicotine is “highly addictive” and can “harm brain development“.

Surgeon General

Ruth Malone, Professor of Nursing & Public Health Policy UC San Francisco, Editor, Tobacco Control journal – has a slightly different slant.

Ruth Malone

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic…”


Are There Benefits? Are they right?

Think about it: is nicotine addictive? Is it dangerous? What are the health risks? Can it harm brain development? Are there benefits to the chemical?

What are they hiding?

Is there justification to what you’ve been told about nicotine or is the information outdated? Is what they say taken out of context? Do some of the people repeating it know it’s true or false?


“Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations…”

Is there a controversy?

The subject matter of this film is intriguing to me. In March of 2017, and in collaboration with others, I conducted a “30-day Nicotine Challenge (with criteria: still uncontested).


What I expect from Aaron Biebart and his seasoned team is thought-provoking truth. I am looking foward to their findings, good or bad.

Why has this not been explored before?

Like his last award-winning independent film, I’m fascinated to see this subject taken head-on. I expect the public health community to line up (in an orderly fashion) to take unprecedented opportunity to explain themselves intelligently and end the debate publicly.

I also expect some to ignore it.


We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. ~John F. Kennedy


Searching for answers

While getting to the bottom of this, I expect – and predict – this director will enlighten us in the process, bringing this subject front and center, telling the world what we don’t know about nicotine.

I fully support this project because I understand the freedom of expression without outside influence. I understand educating the public is much less about ego and much more about education.

Regardless of the outcome, I look forward to the opportunity of discomfort of thought.


I’ll leave you with what the Kickstarter page says:

“We will chase down as many experts (willing & unwilling) as our budget allows. It’s time to get answers from all sides of this debate.”

If you’re interested, you can pitch in as little as $5.00 or much more, with levels and rewards being different, such as your name in the credits, an early streaming link, honoring a loved one who died from a smoking-related or brain-related illness, a public screening license, and much more – up to and including the “Tater Tot” level.

The Kickstarter campaign is here.

Follow this on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the website.


My sincerest hope is this film will Change The Conversation .
