The Big Shutdown

My favorite #CrankyOldBroad had an idea of documenting the devastation of small businesses around the US on Twitter. Dave explains:

The Big Shutdown


The vaping study

With this next one, I want you to highlight a couple things. Data is still data. Individuals are still, like when I did my survey, determined – in any way they can, to not let the government lie. Here’s another place to go…

Big Nicotine

I’ve been in the Big Sheep, Big Impugners, Big Vaping and other double-secret groups, but I’ve never wanted to be in such an elite group like Big Nicotine SO bad… I’d almost give up my #BigBot status to do so!!!

Vape Ban Could Swing Election Against Trump

I’m not sure how President Trump will understand the basis of his decision allowing appointed staff to lie to him may just be the basis of his demise. Remember how shocked “everyone” was when he was elected… who will be stunned in #election2020?

I’ll be telling him with a bunch of friends next Saturday, November 9th, in Washington, D.C..

Vape Ban Could Swing Election Against Trump


Speaking of surveys.

The Real Nightmare This Halloween

VITN rules…. and: “Though the mission of the vaper is clearly for the benefit of protecting health through harm minimization, powerful entities have created the decade’s contemporary folk devils.”

The Real Nightmare This Halloween


Reports Say White House Will Ban Flavors Next Week

Well…. I have a silly question:

Was this a predetermined outcome to ban a less harmful alternative to #smoking from @SecAzar from September 11th?

Jim explains below.

Reports Say White House Will Ban Flavors Next Week


I will be in Washington, D.C. next week and will not be publishing my weekly news….. If you are planning on attending what will be a historic rally in Washington on November 9th, I hope to see you and find each other there!

Vaping IN The News – October 26, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


Eric Garner’s Mother Speaks Out Against Proposed NYC Menthols Ban ~ Are You Going to the Vaping Rally Nov. 9th in D.C.? ~ Trump campaign urges White House to soften proposed flavored vape ban ~ Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee ~ EVALI and risk communication, explained ~ FDA Awards “Modified Risk” Status to General Brand Snus Products from Swedish Match ~ Vapor Technology Association Releases New Television Advertisement ~ World First Med Vape Claim ~ Is Vaping Safer Than Smoking?


I’ve been busy trying to be the best “bot” I can by taking a needed reboot for the past few days. However, news, and all the regulation, restriction, taxes and bans – never stop.

This, for example:


Eric Garner’s Mother Speaks Out Against Proposed NYC Menthols Ban

THIS is what they want,

Are You Going to the Vaping Rally Nov. 9th in D.C.?

“It’s consumer-focused, and will not feature advertisements or products for sale.”

We are NOT bots. We are “We, The People”. #VapeRallyDC2019 #WeVapeWeVote #WeThePeople:

Are You Going to the Vaping Rally Nov. 9th in D.C.?

RELATED: Are we CHANGING the conversation?

Trump campaign urges White House to soften proposed flavored vape ban


Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee

Pavlov’s dog… DING. I’ve been predicting this for SOME time. Vaping products are a replacement for tobacco. They are NOT a replacement for tobacco taxes. Well, regulate, restrict, TAX, and ban.

Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee


EVALI and risk communication, explained

VITN rules apply:

“There are principles of good public health practice and there are tactics by which science and the credibility of government bodies are undermined,” he added. “The CDC needs to think hard about why, in their current course of action, they are choosing the latter.”

EVALI and risk communication, explained

FDA Awards “Modified Risk” Status to General Brand Snus Products from Swedish Match

Snus, Kevin? You’re linking this? Yes. LESS harmful. Period.

Dr. Rodu explains: “It took the FDA over five years (during which 2.56 million American smokers died prematurely) to approve this truthful statement that I have documented for 25 years.” -Dr. Rodu takes this from here.

US lawmaker introduces bill cutting nicotine in e-cigarettes amid teen vaping epidemic

Don’t think for one second lowering nicotine in vaping products does not have a direct mental bias illness with “lower nicotine” in cigarettes.

US lawmaker introduces bill cutting nicotine in e-cigarettes amid teen vaping epidemic

RELATED:

Careful what we – wish for. Remember, limiting is limiting adult consumer choice, whether it be cigarettes or e-liquid. Another link: lower nicotine – higher consumption.

I’ll expand: Because the new “cutting nicotine” bill above is being introduced, my Scooby-Doo, or Spidey senses tells me this New hashtag alert: #NicSick, is proof the “lower nicotinemovement propaganda is now in full force.

I ponder: How many cigarettes I’ll have to smoke to overdose.

Will misinformation kill people?

I ponder: Can you overdose?

Truth.


Promoting the rule of law through improved agency guidance documents

While this looks good on paper, I’m more confused now – and hope you are too.

Marewa Glover Gets an Apology

“They want to silence me.” ~ Dr. Glover.

This woman is important to YOU. As consumers, we are very fortunate in the internet age to have the opportunity to engage with professionals.

While *most* professionals feel the *gasp* the public, is beneath them, we are, as consumers, very lucky to have some who will engage.

They face much heavier scrutiny from their peers (rightly so), BUT this shows, among other things, the risks those professionals are taking, and the results of telling the truth about harm reduction.

Thank you for standing UP, Dr. Marewa Glover.

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…


Total Inspections: 102,032
Total fails for Ends: 4,212
10 fails were for selling Logic to minors
22 fails were for selling Njoy to minors
84 fails were for selling Mark 10 to minors
499 fails were for selling “other” to minors
748 fails were for selling Blu to minors
1407 fails were for selling Vuse to minors
1442 fails were for Juul to minors
Total fails for vape shops: 212
Total fails for smoke and vape shops: 82
*619 of the fails had civil money penalties (so multiple offenses)

Breaking down Ohio: Total Fails for Ends: 177
Ohio Vape Shop fails: 3 ( same store failed 2 times)

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

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.

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.

Image

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.

The Science of Nicotine and Weight Loss

I was referred to this by the #CrankyOldBroad. Not only does it discuss the possibility nicotine and weight loss, it clearly states:

It’s interesting to note that while tobacco is addictive, pure nicotine actually is not. It is the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) in tobacco that leads to addiction, so people taking nicotine who are not exposed to monoamine oxidase inhibitors do not necessarily suffer addiction and withdrawal from the substance

That is interesting to note

Speaking of evidence, with this link, it isn’t the link. It’s the PDF within.

Things like this catch my eye:

“The same review suggested that if the rate of successfully quitting in a population without any assistance is 2-3 percent, the rate would only increase by 3-5 percent even if everyone used NRT. In fact, in order to produce only one additional successful cessation from tobacco, 56 people would need to be treated with NRT.

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


Tobacco “control” ~ Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer ~ U.S. Adults’ Attitudes Toward Lowering Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes ~ This little-known tobacco stock is a big winner from e-cigarette bans ~ Vape Shop Customers’ Experiences of E-Cigarette Use, Vape Shops and the Vaping Community ~ Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen? ~ Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood ~ Mouse-Brained Research ~ U.S. federal judge orders FDA to implement 10-month deadline for e-cig applications ~ Vape Manufacturers Must Submit PMTAs in 10 Months or Shut Down


Tobacco “Control”

The title for this is way too long, and doesn’t quite explain the lack of effort by the World Health Organization’s “Framework Convention on Tobacco Control” (FCTC)

Since 2003, they’ve accomplished bullying smokers, taxing smokers, and “controlling” tobacco, but this states there is NO evidence the FCTC has “reducing cigarette consumption” in all those years.

It’s something they’re just not good at. Evidently.

Tobacco “Control”


Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer

Oh, Dr. Gottlieb. Via Lindsey (with an “e“) Stroud.

Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer


U.S. Adults’ Attitudes Toward Lowering Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes

Um, yeah. A “web-based panel survey” is the best way to go to determine this, because you know, science isn’t working. Here’s a partial list of who’s FOR more cigarettes.

Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen?

See, if when more tobacco sells, you can also file this under “keep smoking we need the money”.

Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen?

Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood

I’m confident stating Michael McGrady understands the misunderstanding.

Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood


Mouse-Brained Research

If “researchers” had a brain the size of a mouse between them…

Mouse-Brained Research


U.S. federal judge orders FDA to implement 10-month deadline for e-cig applications

This could change, be challenged, or ignored. Is my consumer view of this of any substance? Does it matter? Do their claims hold up?

Vape Manufacturers Must Submit PMTAs in 10 Months or Shut Down

Vaping In The News – July 6th, 2019

Vaping Taxes Tempt States but Bring Challenges ~ No sale to minors ~ Grubby Gottlieb ~ You Don’t Know Nicotine ~ Vaping and the Mic ~ Australian researchers claim to have found the mythical gateway! ~ The Corporate Wolf in Public Health’s Clothing ~ Meanwhile, across the pond ~ The Vaping Legion ~


Vaping Taxes Tempt States but Bring Challenges

“National cigarette sales dropped 41% between 2001 and 2017, according to data from the Federal Trade Commission.” “

Prepare yourself for the anti-tobacco crowd claiming false heroism and creative math for dropped smoking rates with useless tactics.

With an obvious play with math and dates, the “41%” stated in the article below is between 2001 and 2017. I haven’t deciphered it – but I’m very confident the bulk of that drop started after 2009, as the graphic shows below.

The Vaping Legion

The “Master Settlement Agreement” is a contract. It creates revenue. For government and HEALTH organizations. From smokers. Buying cigarettes. Repeatedly. Never expires. Vaping is bad. In other words, please, keep smoking, we need the money.

This is well worth the hour.

Vaping In The News – June 29th, 2019

New study on second-hand JUUL vapour. You can all relax now.


Finally, A Direct Comparison of Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco Use

In another example of a tobacco company doing “public health”‘s job, why were the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) withholding information, and why did it take Altria to release it?

Thankfully, Dr. Rodu tells us the American Cancer Society – and FDA, CDC has held information about smokeless tobacco – for years, yet had difficulty sharing it.

Finally, A Direct Comparison of Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco Use


Denial of Nicotine Health Information Is a Breach of Human Rights

I’ve stated repeatedly: When I see Michael McGrady, so shall you.

Denial of Nicotine Health Information Is a Breach of Human Rights


Behold the Revolving Door: Gottlieb Joins Pfizer

Imagine being an employee with the FDA, then, not. Then again, then not.

Behold the Revolving Door: Gottlieb Joins Pfizer


Surprise!

Scott Gottlieb Elected to Pfizer’s Board of Directors

Surprise! Of course, maybe not so much – with the well known revolving door. Remember the bragging about the “fast-tracking” of drugs? Ahh – maybe it’s just me.

I wonder more of what percentage of the “fast tracking” Gottlieb bragged about ends up specifically benefiting Pfizer – like these did while he was FDA deputy commissioner for medical and scientific affairs in 2005.

Big Pharma battles Big Tobacco over smokers

Typing Speaking about Pfizer Gottlieb the pharmaceutical industry trying to take over vaping products. If you’re thinking cap is on – products similar to vaping products could be used patented for other medical applications besides vaping products.

Thinking About The Children

So disappointed in Dave for forgetting the ““. I’m kidding. I love Dave.

Thinking About The Children


Dual Use of Vapes and Cigarettes—Harmful or Harm Reduction?

I’ve covered dual use – admittedly in a non-professional journalistic way – from my survey – with some of you anecdotal sheep here.

Dual Use of Vapes and Cigarettes—Harmful or Harm Reduction?


Bad categories, bad science

Carl V. Phillips. Like no other.

Bad categories, bad science


Was Seattle’s soda tax a bait and switch?

One more.

I know you’re asking yourself: Why would Kevin ever involve a soda tax with vaping products? (Great question – and good for you! Gold star!!!) The answer? Because it shows two things: First, it did NOT decrease consumption, and it, like the Master Settlement Agreement needing MORE smokers now imposing ANY taxes on vaping products, is a Ponzi Scheme.

Was Seattle’s soda tax a bait and switch?

Global Forum on Nicotine Asserts Urgency of Tobacco Harm Reduction
