Using the tobacco settlement.

Lindsey Stroud explains the problem of what looks like the “good tobacco control” people taxing “bad smokers” (and vapers before it’s over) with money to deter smoking, helping smokers… and well, dammit, how they’re just good people.

Well… that’s what it’s supposed to look like. Pay no attention to details. It is only for your own good.

Using the tobacco settlement to pay for public employee pensions, while doubling down against safer tobacco products.


Who Spammed the FDA

Jim McDonald explains, it’s a thing.

Who Spammed the FDA With 250,000 Fake Comments?


FDA Must Ignore Anti-Flavor Astroturfing

Carl V. Phillips. Need I say more?

FDA Must Ignore Anti-Flavor Astroturfing

Comments to FDA on Tobacco Product Standard for Nicotine Level of Combusted Cigarettes

I’ve covered the “lower nicotine” here and here, this piece from Jeff Stier should also have your attention.

Comments to FDA on Tobacco Product Standard for Nicotine Level of Combusted Cigarettes


Simon Chapman Says

Ad hominem simply doesn’t go away. It just hides behind “expertise”.

It would in the best interest of public health to never hear from the Chimpster again, but his ego does get the best of him. I apologised within my own blog as I wrote it here a couple of years ago.

Chimpmanzee…. using the word “retract” is addictive and you should seek professional help – as he’s apologized before here.


Iowa Attorney General

“There remain extreme misperceptions about relative risks”

I’ll let you make your own assessment of this:

Tobacco-Free Kids: Scream Test

Pot☝️, again… (“industry worked in secret”) meet Kettle👇.

Scream Test.


FDA: You Can Run Models, But You Can’t Hide Facts About Smokeless Tobacco

As Dr. Brad Rodu explains, the FDA hides facts.

FDA: You Can Run Models, But You Can’t Hide Facts About Smokeless Tobacco


VapeMeStoopid

One of my inspirations for this blog is this woman. When I came across VapeMeStoopid on Twitter at the end of 2014, (imagine me liking someone #louder…) she was already taking no prisoners. I found someone telling it like it is, very loudly.

She was one who took heat from others for saying DON’T put stupid crap on your labels... even back then. NO topic was taboo. Period.

Proudly in 2015, we guest blogged on each others site.

I missed meeting her in Milwaukee for the ‘Billion Lives’ premier. While she stepped away from advocacy (I and others would love to see her back), we’ve corresponded just a little since then. She’s real.

So, if you remember Meg, or if you don’t know Meg and you’re interested and able, I’ve linked her GoFundMe below where you can choose to give.

I AM NOT AN ANECDOTE

Are you? Well, explain yourself:

I AM NOT AN ANECDOTE


David Goerlitz

It gives me great pleasure to announce I have officially joined David Goerlitz on his Podcast. I’m in charge of coffee and bail.

DavidG Model Citizen Episode Three


Smoking hits new low

Shhhh… Imagine that… I’ve seen little hype about this.

Smoking hits new low; about 14 percent of US adults light up


Sufficient evidence

Ever wondered where bias comes from? Me too. Of course, there is sufficient evidence, but if your website only link two items to the question, how can Nurses (busy as they are) be “informed”?

Are there sufficient evidence-based findings for the RN to have an informed conversation…


Sex, cars and e-cigarettes

Speaking of less harm:

Sex, cars and e-cigarettes


Battery Safety

NO laughing matter – James Jarvis has been working with Battery Solutions to properly care and dispose of batteries in his shop. Here, their site explains safety, storage and shipping of lithium-ion batteries.

This program (or one of your choosing) is an EXCELLENT way to strike up a meaningful and educational conversation with your customer(s) about battery safety and recycling.

Why wouldn’t you?

Why do lithium-ion batteries explode?


FDA: Full of intent, no purpose

Here’s where Dr. Gottlieb continues “redoubling” efforts while he tries to explain explanations on Twitter. Double-speak, if you will… and a few counters from those you probably already know….

FDA: Full of intent, no purpose for smokers.


Gottlieb’s Grotty Games

Here’s Mawsley’s take from across the pond:

Gottlieb’s Grotty Games


American Cancer Society Falsehood:

I sense a tone in Dr. Rodu’s writing. More of that, sir.

American Cancer Society’s Combustible Tobacco Statement Contains Falsehood

Science

The FDA claims nicotine is tobacco. These people do not.

“notably that e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco or generate side-stream emissions…”

David Goerlitz: Model Citizen

This is for smokers, non-smokers, friends, enemies, pets, weird neighbors, “public health”, tobacco control. Everyone, including those who want to troll.

David Goerlitz has 30+ years of experience about things you might not like to hear. The gloves indeed, are off.

I’ll be joining him and collecting donations for bail money…

 


First evidence linking e-cigs to COPD and laryngeal cancer

One may see the headline and think… oh boy.  Good. Dr. Farsalinos has been diligently paying attention – and normally has – within a day or two – an answer for us – collectively.

In my opinion, he and his team are the only trusted medical source for e-cigarette research in the world.

Why? Because he tells us the truth, not what we “want” to hear.

Heat Not Burn

It isn’t my business to coerce someone NOT to try something that might just work. As a consumer, I’d like to know my options. As a human, I show bias. I try not to.  I am for choice. If someone has decided to switch from smoking, “doesn’t quite like” e-cigarettes, (or patches, gums, toothpicks) and can find another alternative, then they should be able to both try, and choose.

“I’m for whatever works for the informed consumer. Patch, gum, Heat Not Burn, vaping, acupuncture, books, hypnosis, counseling, etc…. Do I “like” them all? No. It’s not about or me or are what “I” like. What may work as choice for a consumer is first.”

Do I like the idea it is made by a tobacco company? Not really. Do I think it will be beneficial to smokers trying to switch much more efficiently than pharmaceuticals? Yes. Does that make me happy? Why yes, bias-ly I answer, thanks for asking. Is judgment on the product based on who makes it? Yes. Stop that.

The “Heat Not Burn” sector of ~not smoking~ IS another option, and I’ve heard good things about it.

I tell you about my findings – sometimes with arrogant commentary before-hand – and sometimes not. You’re welcome!

Note the date of the tweet below – by “The James”  – is from 2016. They had a tweet where there were “two” studies. Didn’t find that right away…

I sent multiple tweets about this “study” (if I remember correctly, there were two) and still haven’t recieved a response to date. Must not be important.

However, I FOUND ran across something Ohio University did…. about “vape fluids”. Not that I’m finding it on an official release by the government or any “health” groups…

E-cigarettes and the FDA

gottlieb and zeller

The F.D.A. had warned the e-cigarette industry. Repeatedly. Senators have been on rampages.  California has based their offense on it with “Still Blowing Smoke“. Various “health groups” are and will continue using these images until the end of time. If you don’t know what I’m babbling about – I’m not sure we can be friends…

Crackdown on irresponsible idiots.

If you are, or will now receive a warning letter, you have no one to blame but yourselves. Labels mimicking food products. Blatant, literal and idiotic intellectual, trademark and/or copyright infringements and dumbass cartoons. What you thought were cute labels were clearly both the wrong choice and message to portray.  Let the litigation begin. For the record, I’ve reported you personally – if you’re reading this – over the years – to some of the companies legal departments you were ripping off. So have others.

In fact, in April, Wrigley took on some of you idiots.

Wrigley Beats Vape Co. In Starburst, Skittles Flavors TM Row


Who’s at fault?

YOU are. The manufacturers/shops who are guilty shall be named and shamed publicly by the F.D.A., and I’ll bet most were not a member of an industry group – or know their local city, county or state representatives names. Shops are not off the hook. The standard acceptance and purchase of those same labels by shops – whether by demand of the consumer, the profit margin on sales or the sheer stupidity of those owners – by placing orders, purchasing and accepting shipments of what they (should) know is an example used by any and all tobacco control groups, every anti-smoking group, and a direct target by the F.D.A. – this wasn’t a secret club no one was privy to – and is irresponsible. Period. This was shown, explained – and by and large ignored. Finally, consumers – for purchasing those products… supply and demand.

For at least the five+ years I’ve been not smoking, there have been labels that look like they would and could fool a child into thinking they were for children. In that same amount of time, a select core of consumers like myself have said stop that.

THE Fergus Mason has taken the words right out of my keyboard:

“If you make products like the ones featured here, you are stupid. If you sell those products, you are stupid. If you continue to buy from a vape shop that sells those products, you are stupid.”

Let’s call time on stupid vendors


Finding idiots is easy

In pointing idiots out, we’ve been ignored, slammed, insulted, told to have sex with ourselves, and still, it continued. Between product looking like food, candy, beverage cans  – whatever, and coinciding with trademark infringements as a bonus, you have all been begged, asked, told, shamed and… still – irresponsible practices continued.


“From a consumer standpoint, please put your money where your mouth is so we can continue to buy from you, the responsible vendor/shop/ and manufacturer. ”  

~ Albert Michael Harper.


Guilty By Association

It isn’t that manufacturers are or were marketing to children, specifically. That part in itself does not matter. From fonts and colors, images and packaging, it is the appearance and the images idiotically portrayed and easily used in press conferences.

It is that they gave wonderful and stunning examples of the appearance and impression of marketing to children.  Those doing it poured gas on the fire in the fight.

I’ll mention one person that comes to mind because he is one of those people who really does not bullshit consumers. Dimitris Agrafiotis. He’s BEEN saying it –  and saying it —  and saying it. Because I can’t find the link at the moment to quote, I will paraphrase: 

“What looks like marketing to children by the public cannot be defended. I can’t defend it.”


Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos

He isn’t happy about it, either.

(Thanks, Jukka!)

Irresponsible marketing by parts of the e-cigarette industry requires immediate measures


The consumer drives the market.

I really don’t care how manufacturers / shops want to sell products. I don’t really care if you’ve got a picture of a cat or cartoon. I don’t care. However, consumers like what they like. In various places around the internet, consumers argued for and against these “companies”. Now, those companies are being TOLD to stop. Imagine that.

Imagine this:

Smoking rates among children are at the lowest levels in HISTORY.

There is no gateway to smoking among teens.

We as consumers (industry) possess safer products for smokers with astronomical success rates – have science and data to back it up, and have the F.D.A. by the BALLS……

Yet….. here I sit and type about stupid shit that could have long been avoided.

The consumer drives the market. I am not “in” the industry. I don’t sell product. What I don’t know firsthand is how the State and National industry organizations handled these idiots (if they were a member of the various organizations) up to this point. Blind eye? Looking the other way? Ignored it? Slapped them?

Did they call them out privately? I don’t know. If they didn’t, they should have. If they did, I miss a lot of things – and I may have missed the statement.

What I didn’t miss is the F.D.A. and the “health” groups repeatedly not missing it. For years. Complacency in the industry isn’t acceptable at any level.

Consumers, I’m talking to you as well. Don’t allow these companies to simply rebrand / repackage and come out smelling like cotton candy. They don’t get a FREE ride. Find responsible manufacturers, find responsible local shops who are paying attention, who DO belong to a state/national organization, and choose them. They deserve your business.

As my wife and I approach five years of not smoking, I’ve got no reservations typing these words… Without an ounce of guilt –  and because I predict there’ll be more who will do it in the future, I’ll quote Senator Markey:

Put THOSE specific shops, vendors and manufacturers who make shitty business decisionsout of business“.

I’ll sleep better.

FDA wants comments

Comments are being accepted on the regulation of flavors….on their (in my opinion) already decided rules.

Submit yours, then have everyone in your email list do it as well. Then, have them have everyone on their email list do that as well…

E-cigarettes and the obsolescence of combustion

“…substantial proportions of the population wrongly believe that e-cigarettes are as dangerous as combustible cigarettes…. Unfavorable press coverage, negative campaigns by e-cigarette opponents, and lack of training of health professionals may explain this situation.”

E-cigarettes and the obsolescence of combustion


Topeka “Tobacco 21” Ordinance Turned Down by Judge

Adult choices are adult choices. I wonder why the “Tobacco 21” movement isn’t going state by state rather than each individual local city/town… 50 times rather than hundreds of times… publicity – public opinion – wasting valuable time for those opposed?

A #CrankyOldBroad whispered in my ear – if they get the towns, they can manipulate the states… and most – if not all – of these “Tobacco 21” moments are including e-cigarettes… take all the time you need with that…… Either way, Topeka said “NO“.

Topeka “Tobacco 21” Ordinance Turned Down by Judge


Petition:

Directly related:

Have you ever wondered WHY they wanted to classify nicotine as “tobacco”? Because smokers paid that tax, not tobacco companies. Now, not that I like smokers still paying tax, I DON’T. Not any more than liking people NOT smoking paying the tax.

However, because they can impose tobacco taxes on a NON-tobacco product like e-liquid…. (and tops, and batteries according to National Tobacco Day)

Nothing says #KeepSmokingWeNeedTheMoney, #PonziScheme and “return on investment” like bonds that “were based on assumptions that cigarette smoking declines would not exceed 4 percent annually.”

Sounds like it’s about health, eh? 👇

This explains the nature of the e-cigarette fight to a “T”.

I don’t normally use “cuss” words on my blog – because it seems to me I can get my point across without them – allowing new readers to see the point and cuss themselves….

Also, this would be the first time I’ve had all out “PG” rating to a link on my blog, and because of the nature of it, I’m happy to do so.

An Open Letter

Via David Dorn

An Open Letter to PHE and other “supporters” of ecigs and TRR. (Tobacco RISK Reduction)

AND from David:

David was someone who emailed me early on while conducting my survey (2014) explaining I had nicotine strength (and addiction) all wrong… I didn’t have any higher than 24… he explained strengths went higher…much higher. He explained why.

From the “pleasure principle” to many other things, I learn from this man, I appreciate this man.

Rethink attitudes…


Californian Catastrophe

In the world of funny, this is sad, and this is funny. Not because I was one mentioned within –  because it shows the power of a headline and the lack of intelligence from anyone immediately involved taking it upon themselves to jump on the stupidity bandwagon… and this is why we can’t have nice things.

It is also why, when I as a consumer, do not understand something, I ask someone smarter than I am to explain it. Of course, that practice is evidently not a familiar thing to do among professionals….they just toss it out and… well, I’ve taken up way too much of your time:

Please, tell the FDA what you think.

Vaping In The News – March 24th, 2018

news14Vaping 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, Tobacco Control and your Government – is an informed consumer.”

 




Twenty One – What if we limit adulting to just one age? ~ FDA Working Double Shifts ~ Prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults ~ Pfizer’s quit-smoking Chantix fails study in adolescent smokers ~ Ball squeezing ~ Prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults ~ How The FDA Plan To Take Nicotine Out Of Cigarettes Will Fuel Terrorism ~ State Policies Help Promote Misperception That Nicotine Causes Cancer ~ Chris Price ~ FDA Is About to Crack Down on Non-Compliant Vapes ~ Loise Ross ~ Anti-Smoking Bigots Trying to Kill Smokers and the Vaping Industry ~ Ending Global Confusion ~ CASAA




Twenty One – What if we limit adulting to just one age?

She’s a vaping ex-smoker who fights for what is right. Some (including me) call her a #CrankyOldBroad.

Twenty One – What if we limit adulting to just one age?


FDA Working Double Shifts

To say I’ve met my match in wit with this lady… is an understatement.

FDA Working Double Shifts


Pfizer’s quit-smoking Chantix fails study in adolescent smokers

“Think of the children™.”

I don’t know how pissed off I am after seeing this article. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. “If “children” are *already smoking, they’re *smokers regardless of age.”

Controlled or not, it is ok to fail its study to test “safety and effectiveness” using 12-17-year-old kids with a *known* dangerous and previously BLACK BOXED drug.

Evidently. If anyone has the actual study… I’d like to read it and have someone explain it to me properly.

Pfizer’s quit-smoking Chantix fails study in adolescent smokers


This is the “pisses me off” part of the news, part II.

If you’re not on Twitter, I suggest you join. Below is just an excerpt of Marita Hefler explaing she has “qualitative” expertise in response to Jenni Biebert. The obvious part about being qualitative is the disregard for consumers throughout the thread, despite the response below.

She talks TO smokers (not with them, I assume) and for the record believes e-cigs “have a limited role” in reducing smoking in Australia. The louder the scream test, the more she  – and those like her – expose their true mission.


Speaking of missions, here’s that ball squeezing study Colin was tweeting about:


Prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults

US adult smoking rates are below 15% for the first time *ever* in history at 14.1%

You’re smart people…. (you’re welcome.)

Think about it…….. smoking rates are the lowest in history.

Don’t worry yourselves about “transparency”  by the government(s) with *wink* science.

There would NEVER be *wink* a black market for cigarettes.

Meanwhile, Dr. Gottlieb, with growing support of political “health” front groups – are working feverishly to *encourage* “lower nicotine” cigarettes… while trying to all but decimate e-cigarettes into oblivion.

Prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults


How The FDA Plan To Take Nicotine Out Of Cigarettes Will Fuel Terrorism

Yep.

How The FDA Plan To Take Nicotine Out Of Cigarettes Will Fuel Terrorism


State Policies Help Promote Misperception That Nicotine Causes Cancer

Yep.

State Policies Help Promote Misperception That Nicotine Causes Cancer

From Chris Price:

Nicotine does not initiate carcinogenesis but promotes tumor development, so does nicotine replacement therapy help or hinder cancer development?


FDA Is About to Crack Down on Non-Compliant Vapes

You’ve been warned:

FDA Is About to Crack Down on Non-Compliant Vapes

Not only have you been warned, you’ll pay for it.

Anti-Smoking Bigots Trying to Kill Smokers and the Vaping Industry


Ending Global Confusion

I’ll need about eight minutes more of your time.


A loss.

Some of us, over the years, have met each other, helped each other, counseled one another. We are a community that impact each other on a grand scale. Within a community, we fight (sometimes within, often for each other). Within that global community, on occasion there are losses of what we consider casual relationships online right down to knowing people as friends – well beyond a tweet or facebook exchange, treat each other as family.

Personally, I am reminded of finally meeting Ann at the premiere of A Billion Lives in 2016. We lost her last year. She was one who impacted so many behind the scenes as she did online. Karen Lee a.k.a Fiamma Palermo from 2015 who used the #ImProof hashtag, Alice Dalton of the Vape Help & Vape Safe Facebook group who was always cheerful and helpful to everyone.

Another via James in Ohio this week was Keith Ross, Sr.

I ask you to think about their contributions… and YOUR contribution to what has changed your life. Start a blog, tweet, join groups, make some NOISE. Imagine the impact you can have on others and the future with this fight. Often I am inspired by others just from a statement in a group or a tweet. Learn from each other. Stop asking what can you do – start doing.

Vaping In The News – January 27th, 2018

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 ~ Will we ever get the truth behind the FDA’s devastating vaping rule? ~ Shocking cigarette development could change everything ~ Public Health Consequences of E-Cigarettes (4) ~ Japan’s IQOS Experience Suggests Product Could Reduce U.S. Cigarette Consumption ~ A Big Week For Tobacco Harm Reduction ~ I could be wrong… ~ Vaping less harmful to lung fluids than smoking, study shows ~ Why D.C.’s proposed $2-a-pack increase in cigarette taxes is wrong ~ Joint Statement


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.

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


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.

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


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.

Via Jim McDonald / Vaping 360:

“The bottom line is that the NASEM review is just what the FDA was hoping for.”

Dick Puddlecote… Any questions?

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:

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.”

Smoking cost runs high in South Carolina


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.

A startling contrast to what is above – for fair time and value, if you must, Stanton “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz and David Bareham have thoroughly copied each negative statement(s) they could find or come up with… and produced this contrived, coordinated, coercive manipulative, profitable pile of … well – if the first two items in a takeaway cover “taxing at levels”, what else do you need to know:

To minimize deleterious health effects, we recommend the following measures:

  • Prohibit the use of e-cigarettes anywhere that use of conventional cigarettes is prohibited, including in smokefree homes;
  • Tax e-cigarettes at levels comparable to cigarettes
