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.


Are you listening? ~ Do YOU vape and vote? ~ Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th? ~ Congress Believes Social Media Bots Enticed Minors To Vape ~ Vaping Twitter Bot Study is Dehumanizing Propaganda ~ New Pro-Vaping TV Commercial is Aimed at President Trump ~ Vape Rally At The White House!

Pressing questions first:

Are you listening? Are you paying attention?


Do YOU vape and vote?

In less than a minute: Tell President Trump. Azar said on Fox that he & the President are removing flavors from the market! Make your voice heard now. Answer that question – quickly, and share it in your spaces:

I VAPE, I VOTE


Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

Another quick and easy question – if you’re coming or not!

Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

(I covered the rally here: We, The People.)


Vape Rally At The White House! You Don’t Want To Miss This

Matt speaks briefly about the rally in Washington November 9th.


Congress Believes Social Media Bots Enticed Minors To Vape

VITN rules, I see Mike, you see Mike.

Congress Believes Social Media Bots Enticed Minors To Vape


Vaping Twitter Bot Study is Dehumanizing Propaganda

Editor note: I was one of five accused (“Account 3”) of being a bot. Now, that may sound trivial – but I (yeah, me) am described as “creating and releasing false information”, I am “particularly malicious”, and, according to @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ @EnergyCommerce, I am “actively involved in misinformation campaigns“.

Think of the underLYING motive for tax dollars wasted while Congress investigates whether I, and four others, of millions of accounts, are “bots” – accused of targeting underage kids. Breaking the law. Really? All this – to manipulate public opinion. What ELSE are they doing this with?

Yes, I’m angry. I’m very angry. But, it is much bigger than myself, or the others above. This IS defamation of character to ALL of us and describes this blog, your tweets, thoughts, any research you and I see performed, explained, and then shared – and very existence of US is described – minimized at best, and meaningless – not worth the attention of anyone’s time.

The original report is linked within by Vaping 360 and guest writer, Amelia Howard did a wonderful job explaining this.
