A Billion Lives: Aaron Biebert, Uncut
The Board of Directors at THR4Life decided to reach out to Aaron Biebert to chat with him about the 2nd anniversary of the North American premiere of his film, “A Billion Lives”…
Aaron Biebert talks about the inception, grass-roots research, and his perceptions while preparing for the film. He allows us an intimate perspective of challenges he faced while making the film, where the inspiration came from, and what it took to put this award-winning documentary together.
Will there be a follow up to A Billion Lives?
It was an honor to talk with him. Here are Aaron and I talking about passion, nicotine… and fire alarms.
The FDA Blatantly Hands E-Cig Market To Big Pharma
Dick Puddlecote – is always handing us a view worthy of our time.
Forget the little guy, it’s all Big Pharma now
And… there’s Paul…
The Social Side of Nicotine
Yes, yes there is. Get over it.
Speaking of warning labels
August 10th was the deadline for all packages and ads (manufacturers and shops) for e-cigarettes and “certain other tobacco products” to contain the
required ridiculous FDA nicotine warning. Jim McDonald covered that here.
Reminder: Today's the day all advertisements (including social posts) need to include the warning. Looking for an easy solution, go to MOV WARNIZER in the APP store and download it, courtesy of Ian Firth! Thank you! https://t.co/QyZWdcU9Kr pic.twitter.com/SIrKC4ahpt

Then, I saw this from Ian… and it made me laugh…

Then, it kind of pissed me off that it has to happen at all.
I’ve made my own.
Here are a few…I’m not shutting up.
A longitudinal study of smokeless tobacco use and mortality in the United States
They know better, they just don’t want you to know better. It doesn’t fit thier narrative.
Muddled Milk, Nicotine and Hypocrisy
Our Friend James Jarvis
I’ve met James. He’s about an hour – or a phone call / message away. Take a few minutes to read and absorb his words.
Your Home Is Your Castle, Unless You’re Poor
We are in a position where “control” has removed the last stages of freedom while pretending to be the “good guys”. This is now a state in which adults cannot choose to use a legal product in their own home.
Because we have entered their Reich, you will do as you’re told.
Herein, we’ve entered the final stages of tobacco control utopianism.
Speaking of morals:
This is Beverly Hills. If you think this is an exception… you’re wrong.
This… from Not Blowing Smoke.
“We can not legislate our way out of morality”
How much money:
How much exactly is the FDA spending on…..
“consumer-based messaging, strategies, and materials for multiple multichannel public health education campaigns targeting both national and niche audiences?”
You better sit down.
Gottlieb’s New Statement
No one is more interested in shutting e-cigarettes down than pharmaceutials.
