The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.

They ALL lied

No compound that could be linked to EVALI was found in the two nicotine products tested.

“Our laboratory was the first to identify vitamin E acetate in vaporizer fluids recovered from pulmonary injury patients, which we promptly reported to officials of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and public health officials from numerous states via conference call and via e-mail on August 19, 2019…”

Leafly covered this in September. We ALL know they ALL lied, since at LEAST August. EVALI shall now be renamed as CALIE. (#CDC-associated lung injury epidemic) (CALIE) is ™,©, and ® via @mihotep, 2020.

Peddlers of Ignorance

Robert Innes takes on the idiots at the World Health Organization and has a twist on the “ENDS” acronym I have hated the moment I saw it.

Peddlers of Ignorance


US Surgeon General is an educated idiot

I do like to keep you informed, but please, do not read this on an empty stomach.

As the latest report on smoking in the U.S. was written, vetted, and phamaceutically (yes I made that up) approved, the idiot wasted no time in a speech covering the report he didn’t write by exclaiming – or explaining – jury’s still out – to the country:

I didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years — a decade — to your life expectancy by quitting smoking,” he said.

Here’s his speech in writing:

US Surgeon General is an educated idiot

Bonus idiot alert:

I’ve asked this a gazillion times: At what age is a “smoker” considered a “smoker”? (I was 9 when I started, by 11 or so I was pretty well set in my ways… )

By Jerry’s standards, “teens” who quit smoking (with vaping or any other product) is beneficial regardless of how long they’ve smoked, or their age.

Please note my response to the idiots tweet, and of course, Dr. Sheila Vakharia’s as well.

The “Vape Apocalypse” is still the law. Only legislation can change that.

VITN rules apply for this next one from Michael McGrady… thinking caps:

Will Trump Stop the FDA’s May 11 Vape Apocalypse?

Jim McDonald takes coverage of the fight businesses face, and journalism to a much higher and respectable level, here’s an example:

Will Trump Stop the FDA’s May 11 Vape Apocalypse?


Speaking of Jim McDonald, *possession*……


Azar Promises Streamlined PMTA Approval for Small Vape Businesses

This, with an audio interview, is interesting. I’ve quoted, in part, a piece of what HHS Secretary Azar stated:

“We’re working with small businesses & the vaping association to actually create pathways that would streamline approval for the open tank small vape shop based products” … of course, Jim McDonald covers it all below.

Azar Promises Streamlined PMTA Approval for Small Vape Businesses


Where Did Underage Vapers Get E-Cigs

I stole this one directly from our friends at Vapers.org.UK…. and I should not have to type Dr. RODU’s name more than once, but I will… (are you new here)?

Dr. Rodu is on this…. and explains:

Unsurprisingly, underage teen vapers were mainly motivated by curiosity (50%).  That may be a response to the FDA’s poorly crafted vaping epidemic ad campaign………….” 

Where Did Underage Vapers Get E-Cigs


WHO Vape Report Misleading

Globally, they’ve run out of ideas, the vitamin E acetate isn’t working out to their advantage… and by that, I mean the wheels on the bus go round and round, rehashing old clickbait – into new clickbait sounds appealing.

WHO Vape Report Misleading


E-cigarettes: how risky are they?

This isn’t about health, see Dave’s version of the W.H.O.’s “position” here:

Dead Fish

While “Truth” Initiative takes an idiotic stance to promote and encourage dangerous activities using vaping products, eighth grade students in Minnesota are being taught to – well, experiment with zebra fish and “lavender vape oil”.

“They just died” said one student….

Note: The word “oil” is mentioned at least 10 times, (like this one showing “teens said they have found ways around the temporary vaping ban” here) making me believe they’re purposely either trying to create a search engine hit scheme, or are riding the false ‘oil‘ claim on purpose.

What’s the deal with Snus – the smokeless nicotine in a pouch?

What is the deal? I wasn’t familiar with it until I’d started vaping…

What’s the deal with Snus – the smokeless nicotine in a pouch?


A Cocaine Nasal Spray Just Received FDA Approval

Nothing to see here, including: “weed-based nasal sprays have already been around for a few years, but none are FDA-approved.”

A Cocaine Nasal Spray Just Received FDA Approval


CDC Survey Shows Flavors Aren’t Driving Youth Vaping

They know it, you know it, I know it, they’re just not saying it.

CDC Survey Shows Flavors Aren’t Driving Youth Vaping


U-Haul’s Hateful Policy of Barring Nicotine Users From Employment

When a surcharge on your health premiums for ‘tobacco use’ just isn’t enough to control your use of a legal product, and personal behavior, enough is never enough. Hate and discrimination is still encouraged.

U-Haul’s Hateful Policy of Barring Nicotine Users From Employment


I’d like to welcome Sky Vapes as a new sponsor!


Now come the formalities… mark your calender! It’s coming, but not the way I thought. I was under the impression this would (still could) mandate all cigarettes on the market to ‘lower nicotine’ levels. This is a pre-approved decision, as combustion is still combustion, and the Master Settlement Agreement will apply. More about this below the tweet…


What’s that? Prescribing smoking?

Thinking of quitting smoking with cigarettes? That’s right. Soon you’ll be able to stock up on the prescription cartons six weeks at a time… Well – at least according to the graphic, that’s what 22nd Century “believes”… confidence is high…

In 2016, I predicted prescribing smoking. In 2018, I also realized over 100 million dollars was invested by FDA and other government agencies, and “public health” criminals would support it……. What’s the return on investment?

Here’s how they plan to submit their PMTA: (Note, I repeat, confidence is high – see if you notice the Chantix/Phizer reference once you’re in there…)

Trump told Azar he regrets involvement in vaping policy

What? This is about health, jobs, and personal choice for adults. There should be NO compromise with political front groups. I would encourage every citizen to ask WHY any health policy decision is deemed political. Seems we’re on some nerves, and by all means we’re loud, but I don’t believe we’re loud enough.

Trump told Azar he regrets involvement in vaping policy


Watch: Kat Timpf Warns FDA’s New Vape Ban ‘May Kill People’

When there are warnings, I would appreciate it if Kat would be in charge because she explains “the perfect example of what happens when government officials insist on legislating what they don’t understand“…. and that’s the truth.

Watch: Kat Timpf Warns FDA’s New Vape Ban ‘May Kill People’


Professor “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz said what? Before he steps down as UCSF Tobacco Center director, he’s got some ‘splaining to do.

The only way “combustion” happens with e-cigarettes is when researchers purposely set them on fire.


E-cigarettes and the creation of ignorance

“You will have noticed, of course, the complete and utter disregard for the use of proper scientific language here with my writing, and it is deliberate.”

Robert Innes will take you down a hole with ignorance, language, science, and quite a bit more…
