Pallone thinks you’re stupid

I can’t help that Francis Pallone thinks you are stupid. Take that up with him.


Speaking of being young and stupid

Did I ever tell you… there was a… oh never mind.

You Don’t Have to be Young to Be Stupid” – Tales From the Land of Prohibition


House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban

Because it isn’t about… well… yes, yes it is.

House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban


How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens

Oh wait, here’s how Francis deflects his own criminal enterprise with criminal and civil penalties for others, but not him.

Here’s what else #HR2339 had in it that caused a ruckus.

How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens


STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

Back to reality. The house led by pied piper and top nanny-fuss-bucket Pallone had this dropped on his desk the night before.

Highlights:

“Unfortunately, however, this bill contains provisions that are unsupported by the available evidence regarding harm reduction…”

” another provision that raises constitutional concerns “

” The Administration cannot support H.R. 2339’s counterproductive efforts to restrict access to products that may provide a less harmful alternative to millions of adults who smoke “combustible cigarettes.”

“The Administration is also concerned about the constitutionality of a provision…”

“This standard may not satisfy the stringent vagueness test applied to regulations of speech under the Constitution’s Due Process Clause.

“the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting regular surveillance of—and, when appropriate, taking enforcement measures …”

Do you really need to read it? Well, there it is.

Call For Another Retraction

As if Professor Puff-N-Stuff isn’t embarrassed enough. Well, he certainly is not, and his funding tells him so.

Call For Another Retraction



The Politics of Vaping

That it “is” about politics (and money, and egos) rather than health still, after 5+ years still blows my mind. But, as I wrote late last year, there is a timeline where we went from being decimated to being FACE to FACE with opponents in the White House.

From someone I trust exclusively, Chris Price answers this pressing question.

Would the PG mist from vaping help to reduce, deactivate, or kill some degree of airborne coronavirus?

I can’t think of anything better to end this edition with than this, with our friends Dr. Brad Rodu joining Brent Stafford as they go down the rabbit hole with “Glantz Study Scandal & Truth Behind Smoking Death Rates”… lend your eyes and ears.

New Bill in Congress Would Destroy the Vape Industry

Are you a business? Are you pissed off yet? Huh.

It’s possible Jim McDonald may raise your awareness – or at least your blood pressure. Not sure.

New Bill in Congress Would Destroy the Vape Industry


Bizarre FDA vaping retail restrictions more likely to do harm than good

Still with me? No seizures or strokes yet? Tolerance still tip-top shape? Jury isn’t in yet? Well – proceed with Clive:

Bizarre FDA vaping retail restrictions more likely to do harm than good


Popcorn Lung, Formaldehyde, and Now Seizures, Oh My!

Mad yet? Really? I’m not convinced, but our friend Lindsey might talk you down a bit. Or not. See, if you haven’t already tried to stop regulations, restricti… never mind.

Popcorn Lung, Formaldehyde, and Now Seizures, Oh My!


FDA Created the Youth Vaping Epidemic, Now It’s Doubling Down

See, YOU know they did, and I know they did, and THEY know they did. That’s how it works. Now the country believes it. Have you called anyone or shown up to stop regulations, restricti… data, resea Never mind. . .

FDA Created the Youth Vaping Epidemic, Now It’s Doubling Down


Speaking of Frank Pallone

Frank Pallone (D), New Jersey – he wants $100 million for you to not smoke. Frank is hiding behind children to regulate, restrict, tax and ban less smoking.

Link to this idiotic tweet.

You can see what New Jersey spent on smoking prevention in 2014 here.

Tobacco Wars collateral damage: feature, not bug

So, I wonder if you’ve… Never mind.

Tobacco Wars collateral damage: feature, not bug


US cigarette sales slump as vaping hits new heights

So, you’d think this is good news for the industry, have you possibly – as a business owner – had a meeting with your local and state reps? Mayor? City council? BEFORE they fini…. well…

“Sales fell by 8.8% year on year…”

They’re almost acting like they’re having convuls seizures. It’s as if their funding depends on sales – so they have to regulate, restrict, tax, and ban… never mind.

Nicotine replacement: when quitting cigarettes, consider using more nicotine, not less

Do NOT limit nicotine strength.

Discussed by me (in a far less professional manner) here, it’s also here.

Actual Tobacco Settlement Payments Received by the States (in millions)

A more up to date – sort of interactive source for your STATE Master Settlement Agreement RICO infested funds. (See the “”The Ponzi Scheme”: Master Settlement Agreement” section on the right blog.) This link cleverly goes to the state list, but note there are other sources included in this site to use when you take yourself to the city, county, and state you’re in business in… never mind.

(Thanks to Xavier Limodin for the link!)

Actual Tobacco Settlement Payments Received by the States (in millions)


Last, but certainly not least, I wasn’t joking when I covered the importance of businesses belonging to an, (one, any, multiple) organization(s) here. You don’t have to convince me – but belonging to a state or national group will help you prepa…. NEVER MIND.

It’s like the government is playing a game – saying to the industry: “Finish Him“.

Here, Fig explains a few things such as advertising and being louder. Without being rude.
