Can e-Cigarettes and Pharmaceutical Aids Increase Smoking Cessation and Reduce Cigarette Consumption?
Not if anyone in power and control has anything to say about it.
Update on Deeming Rule Appeal
1. The MRTP provision violates the First Amendment
2. Notably, they are not cigarettes, as they do not contain tobacco and there is no combustion or smoke.
Vaping And Harm Reduction: Don’t Let the Perfect Be the Enemy of the Good
Because it is there.
‘Real‐world’ compensatory behaviour
You can add this to your “we don’t know enough” files…
Alan Beard wrote about this – mentioning yours truly, and the brilliance of Norbert Zillitron, Bernd Mayer, Paul Barnes…
Before you read the titled section of ‘Real-world’, please see Alan’s blog first where VAPERS knew about it, and explained it. It took them a while to catch up… but they don’t or won’t listen to US.
From Alan Beard in 2015:
Now you can read their “catch-up”.
We are not idiots.
Erica is right.
And they go back to the gateway theory. If this were true, wouldn't they leave ecigs alone? If ecigs LEAD to smoking, then their income would not be at risk. If vapers turn into smokers then they would resort their products to quit smoking.

How Vaping could disrupt Big Tobacco’s plans in Africa
Bloomberg predicts “by 2047 there will be more sales within vaping than the traditional tobacco.
MY opinion: Worldwide tobacco use would drop to -10% in less than 10 years without doing a thing if there were NO interference, regulation, restriction, tax and ban & they left consumers alone. Not just with e-cigarettes, but snus as well.
The Grey Miserable World of ‘Public Health’
Dick has a way with words… and I adore that.
“The hold that ‘public health’ has over politicians is astonishing, but then it’s because politicians are weak, cowardly, and ultimately incredibly stupid”
Plain Packaging & the TPD
Speaking of adoration, Paul: Facts. Do. Matter.
Montana Proposal Punishes Lower Income Smokers
EACH time professional organizations (Yep, I’m talking to you) decide to *allow & *negotiate taxes/legislation instead of fighting them and without being clear on public record = #nicotine is not tobacco…
…without clear and extreme public objection, it (industry) is settling for years of the *definition of nicotine as tobacco being *taxed & *acceptable, and the shop owner and consumer will pay the price.
CASAA Tobacco 21 policy statement:
“Including low-risk alternatives in T21 laws is unwise, misleading”
On July 3rd, “Truth” Initiative put out a tweet claiming adult smoking is 17.1% nationally. I’m not sure how smoking rates went up 3.2% nationally in just two weeks but I asked my question anyway – which will certainly be ignored.
Business plan is:
Show lowering rates to increase “we’re doing our job” and winning. Give us more money.
Show – oops – an uptick in rates – “we need to do more”. Give us more money.
Think of the children™ is required for every press release.
Deny anything. Coordinate, manipulate – and fabricate…. everything.
Tax increases at any cost…..
Dr. Gottieb, WHY are these groups able to say what they like?
WHY are non-profit groups able to do this?
WHEN will you regulate THEM? 👇 https://t.co/K9z8NcHu4P

Covered here: Truth Initiative manipulates tobacco numbers
Are Vapes Tobacco Products?
It’s still a thing.
How to Lie, Cheat, Manipulate and Mislead
“and that’s the question that I have applied to my research relating to tobacco. If this comes out the way I think, will it make a difference? And if the answer is yes, then we do it, and if the answer is I don’t know then we don’t bother. Okay? And that’s the criteria.”
This link is – more for humor and posterity on my part, and may be self-explanatory on yours… or not… because they (surely there’s manipulation with any subject matter) get the numbers, data…they get the results, and outcomes they want. Then, they give it to the public just how they would like it to be interpreted.
That, my dear readers, is why they’re so angry about Foundation for a Smoke-Free World.
This could be any vape shop. I’ve had the privelege of meeting James Jarvis here in Ohio a couple times. James and his family are celebrating their monumental 5th year anniversary in a business in which government, pharma and political front groups are trying to destroy.
Employing – from my perspective – stellar people who are instrumental in the success and are recognized for their role as a team.
James, as I hope most shop owners are, is continuing with the necessity of taking on local, state and national issues with the consumer in each thought, step, testimony, letter, phone call, rally, billboard, political meeting, education, e-mail, podcast, and all the crazy “behind the scenes” things – – – no one ever really could imagine outside the mind of a shop owner (including me) is being done…to make the world a better place.
