Scott Gottlieb: JUUL is Now Your Bitch
Well, I’m not against… wait a minute…
Same Author, my favorite subject: FOIA Request for Nicotine Statements…
Are the Kids Alright?
One of the best breakdowns yet.
From the same author – on Twitter:
The “Winston Man”: A Transition from Cigarettes’ Model to Vaping Advocate
“The independent vape industry is serving the market on a silver platter to the tobacco companies,” explained Goerlitz.”
Should flavours be banned in cigarettes and e-cigarettes?
NO. Nicotine strength should not, either. Period.
More than 50 tickets issued for underage vaping
If Gottlieb was intending swift and STRINGENT ENFORCEMENT – and fines to exceed these – and I mean extreme fines – for selling to minors – for ANY counter sales – vape shops or otherwise, including losing their licences – via the Synar Amendment – changing it to 95% to “qualify for funding’ rather than the EXTREMELY lenient and ‘acceptable’ 80%, I’d almost start respecting efforts similar to these from Dr. Gottlieb.

When dissention begins… put me at the front of the line.
Antivaping Hysteria Is Unhealthy
A question from Steve Forbes himself:
“What are these witless prohibitionists inhaling?”
The Last and Only Solace
For the smokers at heart.
Things I love to see:
Stossel: Let Them Vape
I was pleasantly surprised to see this balanced piece, especially with Michelle Minton.
“National Drug Threat Assessment”
For something compared as “addictive as cocaine or heroin”, I am VERY disappointed not to find evidence of nicotine gangs, cartels, trafficking, abuse or threats and specifically “epidemics” listed on the just-released “National Drug Threat Assessment”.
It was pointed out on Twitter that Kratom was not on the list.
Nicotine is absent as well.
Vaping to smoking initiation among US youth and young adults: a reality check
I can’t tell if this got released “too early”, too quick, or dammit, there just isn’t a gateway despite Gottlieb’s determination of creating, nurturing and finally revealing an “epidemic”. Certainly, there is no gateway.
Phil linked this from 1998:
Free Child Labor
With the “Great American Smokeout” behind us, Tobacco Free Indiana took the opportunity to raise hope Indiana legislators will increase the state’s cigarette tax by $2 a pack.
How’d they do it? Well, adults in charge put forty-five children “on their hands and knees” to pick up cigarette butts. That’s 45 hours of free child labor.
“Think of the children™.” Will they also have those children “volunteer” to pick up used condoms and needles to raise awareness of safe sex and drugs?
All in the name of funding.
Free child labor.
Isn’t that nice.
Pisses me off.
“… more importantly, the clean-up was a good way to give back”.
More Junk Studies
I crack me up.
