news14

Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, e-cigarettes, snus, heat not burn, tobacco control, public health, government regulations, policies and more.

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

Altria seeks state review of tax policy on new ‘reduced risk’ tobacco products

So, taxing “nicotine” because it is “deemedtobacco is to recoup taxes on losses of the government(s) from slowing sales of tobacco – and of course, they didn’t plan on cigarette sales dropping like they have, as a result of their irresponsible fiscal greed and inability to budget downward and out of existence, they deemed nicotine & e-cigs, components and parts AS tobacco so they can tax them and oh, I’m just babbling now — anywhooo….

Altria wants to reduce taxes on tobacco because it’s “reduced risk” tobacco. So, yeah.

Will we ever get the truth behind the FDA’s devastating vaping rule?

In case you missed it, it’s pretty clear…

NOT.

Will we ever get the truth behind the FDA’s devastating vaping rule?

Shocking cigarette development could change everything

Shocking cigarette development could change everything

And, because I’m your friend, I’ll include this, where the ‘ever self-important’ Professor “Puff-N-Stuff” wants to control the world, he’s put his worthless opinion in, added here for your convenience. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

FDA should not grant PMI’s Premarket Tobacco Product Application for IQOS


Host–agent–vector–environment measures for electronic cigarette research used in NIH grants

This one made me laugh angry. In the conclusions from 2007 thru 2015:

“contributes to receipt and ultimately funding a greater proportion of grant proposals”

“lack of specificity about the e-cigarette product under study”

“authors needed to conduct online searches to determine the product type”

“Consequently, the universe of grant proposals in our analysis could reflect a bias of the funding agencies’ priorities and not the investigative community.”

“Could reflect a bias”… could, my vaping ass.

Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes

Well, for the most part…. there are consequences… and while it may take a while for you to go through it, I’ve got Jim McDonald, Carl V. Phillips and Michael Siegel below it to shed better light on it before you decide to click on the actual report.

A Big Week For Tobacco Harm Reduction


I could be wrong…

I. As in me. I could be wrong. It’s happened…. anyway… 22nd Century has been touted countless times by organized crime syndicates about how excited they are for “lowering nicotine” in cigarettes. The FDA has said it enough for me to become obsessed with the success or fate of this company. I don’t “care”, but have watched intently as the idiots think it could work for smokers wanting to quit… I thought it was a shoo in, at least for the FDA to keep saying it.

Investors on the other hand…

Clive Bates and David Sweanor are both quoted within:

Vaping less harmful to lung fluids than smoking, study shows

Well, of course, it is.

Lindsey Stroud states:

“not only is the Food and Drug Administration battling e-cigarettes, county health departments around the country are joining in the battle to “demonize devices that can help improve public health.”

Joining Ranks

Finally – to wrap up Vaping In The News this week, the scream test continues… each time I see “prestigious” educational institutions denying funding… I get inquisitive…

Ellen J. MacKenzie, PhD, MSc, Dean of Bloomberg School of Public Health  – Johns Hopkins University joined ranks by choosing financing and funding of their research to continue with taxes from smoking as they released this joint statement.

Since the Master Settlement Agreement commenced in 1998, I can only conclude – according to the Johns Hopkins University website stating  “as a partner in a number of public health initiatives since its inception in 1998” that Dean MacKenzie (and the others signing) place funding via sales of tobacco via the MSA as ethical… but don’t trust themselves to do unbiased research despite the source of funding.

Vaping In The News – October 14th, 2017

hourglass

As I put this weeks edition together, I pondered all the time and public OUR money wasted over the past 10+ years by experts – tracking tweets, buying media, pretending to do studies and claiming science… Then, I wonder…. what have they tried to accomplish… and what other much more important items they’ve done the same with, or ignored in the process.


Johnson Creek is going out of business ~ Science Lesson ~ Marathon Man ~ Bloomberg ~ Tobacco 21 ~ Teen Cigarette Narcs ~ Doug Teitelbaum ~  Foundation for a smoke-free world ~ Tobacco Free Kids ~ Screaming ~


This is Vaping In The News for the week ending October 14th, 2017


Instead of babbling, I’ll lead off with a spirited tweet from Ann, who I (and others) miss dearly.


Johnson Creek is going out of business

Their statement:

Important! Johnson Creek is going out of business


Science Lesson

One of the best ways to learn is to listen and read. That’s why I like reading Carl’s blog. I don’t always agree with Carl, and that is how I learn.

“Ecigs are a replacement for tobacco products. They are not a replacement for lost tobacco taxes.”

I’ve said this a thousand times.

In this instance, there should be NO tax imposed on vaping products (other than normal sales tax). Period. We agree.

Science Lesson: The Optimal Tax Rate For Vapor Products Is Zero


Marathon Man

Chris Baxter, who I’ve followed over on Twitter:

YES.

Bloomberg

Dr. Carrie Wade at the Daily Vaper takes on another big donor of anti-tobacco with reduced risk and research:

Tobacco 21

While the public is, you can’t be convinced this will work. You’re too savvy for that.

Tobacco 21 Is a Catch-22


Denver Is Hiring Teen Cigarette Narcs

Where I’ve covered the Synar Amendment and the recreation of the problems here in June of 2017, I made a prediction.

In my (highly acclaimed by me) opinion, as the age of purchase was 18, they are having a difficult time keeping their percentage at acceptable levels, and now want to raise it to 21 to recreate the problem.

Well… imagine my surprise when I read (bold is my emphasis)

“….the department hopes to snag even more vendors, projecting a 23 percent noncompliance rate by the end of 2017.”

Imagine my surprise from one of my favorite rodents, Phil:

Here’s that breach, including e-cigarettes:
