Marylin

Something like this always brings me back to where I need to be, fighting for the choice of consumers. It reminds me of Fiamma Palermo (Karen Lee) a few years ago, who used the #ImProof hashtag.

This young lady declares her right is her right to choose, and questions accountability. More of this please. I must admit, I’ve got a crush on Marylin. I’m smitten. Not sure if my wife will voluntarily move out, though.



Mark Slis (Scientist & Vape Shop Owner)

Another consumer, and more. I’ll let him explain it during his testimony after driving over 500 miles to do it.


Compliance Checks

Meanwhile, as Marilyn eloquently stated above, underage children are still breaking the law. Meanwhile, retail stores are still breaking the law.

James Jarvis shared a post on his Facebook page showing the latest current numbers of “compliance checks”. Then, he asks a question.

He did my homework for us, so I stole his post. (Thanks James!)

Year to date FDA Inspection data total US…

*619 of the fails had civil money penalties (so multiple offenses)

Then he asked: “Tell me again where the youth are getting their vape products?”

Speaking of Michigan

It is not all roses and candy in Michigan… Rep. Johnson got on “Mr. Eliquid’s” website… and made a determination.

More of that responsibility, lawmakers!!!

Flavored E-Cigarette Bans Propagate America’s War On Drugs

VITN Rules…. with Michael McGrady:

“Moral panics, in turn, pave the way for “endgame” drug control policies. The war on drugs also has a history of pushing ultimatums to achieve policy goals.”

Uncool Mint Research

Another scare story tried to rear its ugly head this past week. While illegal THC products are giving the “anti’s” fictitious and strong momentum, they’re looking at ALL angles of decimation of a less harmful product.

We’re already looking for all we can know about e-cigarettes. Do you know why? We’re tired of everyone being lied to. Because we’re the stakeholder in the equation. You’re not.”

Don’t Protect Cigarettes by Banning Far Less Harmful Nicotine Vapor Products

It’s great to see Bill Godshall still out there pounding the truth.

14 Days to Prohibition: New York and Michigan Pass Flavor Bans

Jim McDonald.

14 Days to Prohibition: New York and Michigan Pass Flavor Bans


Governors Cuomo & Whitmer

May as well put criminals in one place.

Both Whitmer & Cuomo wants flavors banned. I’ve heard it may be because adults don’t like flavors! Neither do Senators.

“They want to regulate, restrict, tax and ban less smoking.” Think about it.

Governors, like Cuomo, seem to like tobacco-flavored non-governmental organizational front group flavored lollipops.

Governor Whitmer, seen here enjoying a house full of flavored ice cream, beer, pastries, cookies, donuts, coffee and gasp, flavored cheese, does not like flavors either.

In fact, I’m under the impression she really likes flavors, including cherry, blueberry, and raspberry pie, but doesn’t want Michigan folks to have those same freedoms.
