Vaping In The News – April 30th – May 6th, 2017

Coordination with the FDA: Hartland, Wisconsin ~ Please Keep Smoking Award ~ Smoke Some More ~ Views & News On Cole Bishop ~ There’s A List ~ Coverup, Judicial Watch ~ Senator Johnson ~ Truth Initiative ~ Health aspects of e-cigarettes ~ Fergus Mason ~ Nicotine


Hartland, Wisconsin

Imagine for a moment that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has overstepped their authority in “deeming” anything to do with e-cigarettes.

Imagine #EnoughIsEnough:

Coordination with the FDA: Hartland, Wisconsin Holds Public Hearings


Please Keep Smoking Award

State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, (D-PA) is the recipient of this week’s “Please Keep Smoking” award. Seems the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network likes to give out “awards” to keep people smoking.

Here’s her shameless self-promotion piece:

Daley earns ‘Distinguished Advocacy Award’ from American Cancer Society


FDA: Please Keep Smoking More

The FDA likes smoking so much, they have an initiative to figure out how to keep people smoking under an “initiative” to pretend to get them to smoke “less”.

I thought the FDA’s purpose was to regulate, not initiate.

I covered “lower nicotine” and 22nd Century here in March of last year…

“The company’s cigarettes are part of an estimated $20 million FDA initiative to determine “the best method to quit smoking

there’s more, as I predicted.

22nd Century gets FDA authorization for low tar-to-nicotine cigarette clinical trial

My pal DrMA asked them this question:


Covering up the obvious isn’t enough.

The FDA is batting 1,000 with non-answers – as if they were above the law.

With Former FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg under R.I.C.O. charges, Senator Ron Johnson being ignored last year asking the FDA repeatedly to produce documentation, and Hartland asking questions above, Judicial Watch has asked, through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) for – well – information.

I’ll wait.

Nicotine

Via Jim McDonald

Remember, folks, “nicotine” is now tobacco.

People are usually interested in how long nicotine remains in the system because their employer wants to test for nicotine, either as a condition of employment, or more commonly to determine the cost of health insurance.

How long does nicotine stay in your system?

A Billion Lives

a-billion-lives-planet-graphic-larger-1024x540

The actions of government, public health and tobacco control stating there is a desire to decrease or end tobacco use is a smoke-screen. Corruption and power over the general population wielded by those in “charge” is quietly disguised as authority and compassion.

Exposure of this film is essential to dissect the hypocrisy for the public. This film points directly to the inexcusable position “authorities” have taken publicly against vaping products demanding regulation, forcing bans and repeating lies. This has given smokers searching for the truth about these products a bleak, misinformed perspective.

The world needs to see the orchestrated manipulation documented in this film, and they need to understand why it’s happening. Those in charge need to be held accountable for their actions as well as their in-actions.



A task not meant for the weak or timid, the ‘A Billion Lives’ crew is about to challenge the ultimate authority, the World Health Organization in Delhi, India – during the biggest “tobacco control” meeting in the world, “The seventh session of the Conference of the Parties (COP7)”. The A Billion Lives premier in Delhi is November 9th, 2016.
