VITN 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.

Vaping Prohibition is On the Table in Congress

I seem to remember saying, tweeting, and blogging about regulations, restrictions, taxes, and bans. Repeatedly. Redundantly. Ahhh… but I repeat myself repetitively.

Vaping Prohibition is On the Table in Congress


Nicotine science and policy Q & A

WELL worth the lengthy read. Why? Don’t question me!

Nicotine science and policy Q & A


I dare you to click on this…

Pro tip to legislators: Behind closed-doors agenda agreements should come BEFORE a vote, not during. Because I adore it so much, I tend to use the word (or variations) of “clusterfuck” sparingly. Here’s fuckwittery and clusterfuckitry in action – in front of a camera.


Virus hammers vape producers – and taxes boost smoking

I thought he’d sold his soul at least twice, but now, I present to you, THE Fergus Mason.

Virus hammers vape producers – and taxes boost smoking


Flavored tobacco bans lead to unintended consequences

A.J. Moll. In the flesh. Well, in the electronic flesh:

Flavored tobacco bans lead to unintended consequences


Professor Puff-N-Stuff is a retracted idiot.

If he’s lied about this one, imagine the need to go over ALL of his “work”. You can pick one from many, they’re all my favorite:

Journal Retracts “Unreliable” Glantz Study

Junk study on vaping and heart attacks retracted

American Heart Association Journal Finally Retracts Study

Trump’s Good Idea: Get Drug Regulators Out Of Vaping

I have a special place in my heart for those in public health actually doing the work they are supposed to do. Here’s Sally Satel:

IQOS Heat-Not-Burn Products Are Drawing Smokers Away from Cigarettes

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

Did FDA Create a Regulatory Loophole for Puff Bars?

As always, Jim McDonald goes above and beyond.

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.


NICOTINE DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER ~ New York Magazine forgets that smokers exist ~ The Vaping Industry’s Impeachment ~ Charles Gardner points out the Truth ~ Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids distributes vaping products ~ Indefensible Inaction by JAHA Editors on Obvious Research Misconduct ~ Research: Vaping Helps Smokers Quit ~ US Candidates on Vaping ~ Children testifying about vaping in open court ~ Vaping: what people are getting wrong | The Economist ~ Snarky bonus tweet


NICOTINE DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER

I put this at the top of this weeks news – because the myth is important. There are many people assuming the opposite. (Think snus.)If you are surprised to learn this, that’s fine. Read it anyway. If you’re aware, awesome, there’s more news below.

NICOTINE DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER


New York Magazine forgets that smokers exist

Another author I admire takes a hit piece, explains conflation, excessive misinformation, harm reduction and what the public deserves.

New York Magazine forgets that smokers exist


The Vaping Industry’s Impeachment

VITN rules are strictly adhered to with Mr. McGrady: Who doesn’t like a little political banter with their vape?

Charles Gardner points out the Truth

Apparently, in a less than obvious way to pull the gazillion people underage users of e-cigarettes to the promised land of a phone app, Truth Initiative has found the “cure” for the “epidemic”. Dr. Gardner points out their flaws in their… well – you see it.


Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids distributes vaping products

A vaping product in everyone’s hands….. After years of supporting tobacco companies and smoking, I knew CTFK would finally come around. They are now distributi…. Wait a minu…. did they supply plenty of these to school officials to create an illusion of an epidemic?

Can the journalists and companies they work for not afford to purchase these themselves? Did Matt use funding and donations to purchase these?

One never knows.


Indefensible Inaction by JAHA Editors on Obvious Research Misconduct

Dr. Rodu has integrity. It’s there, you should feel obligated to read it. (Not that I’d ever force your hand.)

Research: Vaping Helps Smokers Quit

Dr Farsalinos said: “Unsurprisingly, and in agreement with other studies, we found a strong association between current daily e-cigarette use and being a former (rather than a current) smoker.

Research: Vaping Helps Smokers Quit


US Candidates on Vaping

Being the least informed on what is a hot topic in the U.S. is one thing, not knowing it is political… as discussed above… is another thing entirely. Hearing it from Dave across the pond makes it better.

US Candidates on Vaping

Two videos from this week:

Children testifying about vaping in open court

Since my introduction to the inner-sanctum of the vaping world, (which is at times by far seemingly on the outer rings of Saturn), the discussion of having children testify in open court has been a contested and “lets not talk about that” position for many good, and bad reasons. I haven’t changed my mind, I just haven’t been able to articulate how it should, or could, be done.

I think, and hope you’ll agree, this outstanding example where children (not coached, not scripted or wearing a nifty orange shirt) can, and should be a bar the industry and consumers can attain respectfully. This was discussed last evening on Smoke-Free Radio, and the conclusion is that (we) there’s nothing left to lose.

This points to a wonderful example to the (your) child how the legal process works, and can be effective to lawmakers. You have to judge the maturity of your child and their ability to speak their mind. If they meet your criteria, You get your three minutes, they should have theirs.

To speak in public is one of the top fears humans have. In this instance, these brave children did well. This is 5:45 long and well worth your time.


Vaping: what people are getting wrong | The Economist

Yep, the mainstream media is paying attention. Yes, we have a long way to go. NO, it’s NOT over. Yes, you’ve seen similar. Yeah. It’s 12:53 seconds. No, it’s not ‘perfect’. Nothing is.

Accept that, watch it anyway, then tell all your friends to watch it.

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.

Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them. ~ There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL” ~ Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners ~ Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking ~ The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation ~ World Health Organisation fails ~ Peak Australian GP body supports vaping ~ Nicotine Expert: Vaping is Unlikely to Cause Seizures ~ Vaping Causes Everything ~ The USSG Isn’t Helping ~ Policy Tip Sheet: Tobacco Harm Reduction 101: State Profiles


Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.

I cannot break my VITN tradition, I’ve seen Michael McGrady, and so shall you.

I will preface this article with my now age-old (pun intended) and thoughtful question: At what age is a smoker considered a “smoker”, and display one of my favoritest tweets ever:

You can choose to disagree if you like.

Youth who use nicotine have rights. Stop punishing them.


There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”

Speaking of teens…. this is from the MN Smoke Free Alliance. It is not only an articulate and precise way to educate children the adults in the education, “control”, parenting, and industry spaces, it is one of the best “wish I’d have written this” documents I’ve seen.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to “Ditch JUUL”


Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners

Speaking of teens…. they are included in this piece. If you’re going to talk about, and the genuine goal is harm reduction – directly or indirectly, you will include teens in the conversation.

Vape Ban – More Losers Than Winners


Lungs ‘magically’ heal damage from smoking

Because Robert Innes pointed this article out to me, I’m quoting Mr. Innes here, he has a better foreword to the article than I:

“So much for the argument that, “we should only breathe clean, fresh air” and that our lungs are delicate. It would seem that our lungs are smarter at looking after themselves than the World Health Organisation FCTC and the doomsayers who claim DNA damage from vaping.”

The Surgeon General’s Bogus Report on Smoking Cessation

Recall my friend, Jerry wants smokers to quit – and admittedly doesn’t understand why… he claimed “I didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years — a decade — to your life expectancy by quitting smoking…” in his speech last week.

Speaking of fraud, Dr. Rodu takes Jerry’s “report” to task.

Vaping In The News – January 18th, 2020

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.


Dead Fish ~ What’s the deal with Snus – the smokeless nicotine in a pouch? ~ A Cocaine Nasal Spray Just Received FDA Approval ~ CDC Survey Shows Flavors Aren’t Driving Youth Vaping ~ U-Haul’s Hateful Policy of Barring Nicotine Users From Employment ~ What’s that? Prescribing smoking? ~ Trump told Azar he regrets involvement in vaping policy ~ Watch: Kat Timpf Warns FDA’s New Vape Ban ‘May Kill People’ ~ Professor “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz said what? ~ What’s your story…We Vape We Write ~ THR4Life


Dead Fish

While “Truth” Initiative takes an idiotic stance to promote and encourage dangerous activities using vaping products, eighth grade students in Minnesota are being taught to – well, experiment with zebra fish and “lavender vape oil”.

“They just died” said one student….

Note: The word “oil” is mentioned at least 10 times, (like this one showing “teens said they have found ways around the temporary vaping ban” here) making me believe they’re purposely either trying to create a search engine hit scheme, or are riding the false ‘oil‘ claim on purpose.

Lincoln students test effects of vaping on zebrafish


What’s the deal with Snus – the smokeless nicotine in a pouch?

What is the deal? I wasn’t familiar with it until I’d started vaping…

What’s the deal with Snus – the smokeless nicotine in a pouch?


A Cocaine Nasal Spray Just Received FDA Approval

Nothing to see here, including: “weed-based nasal sprays have already been around for a few years, but none are FDA-approved.”

A Cocaine Nasal Spray Just Received FDA Approval


CDC Survey Shows Flavors Aren’t Driving Youth Vaping

They know it, you know it, I know it, they’re just not saying it.

CDC Survey Shows Flavors Aren’t Driving Youth Vaping


U-Haul’s Hateful Policy of Barring Nicotine Users From Employment

When a surcharge on your health premiums for ‘tobacco use’ just isn’t enough to control your use of a legal product, and personal behavior, enough is never enough. Hate and discrimination is still encouraged.

U-Haul’s Hateful Policy of Barring Nicotine Users From Employment


I’d like to welcome Sky Vapes as a new sponsor!


Now come the formalities… mark your calender! It’s coming, but not the way I thought. I was under the impression this would (still could) mandate all cigarettes on the market to ‘lower nicotine’ levels. This is a pre-approved decision, as combustion is still combustion, and the Master Settlement Agreement will apply. More about this below the tweet…


What’s that? Prescribing smoking?

Thinking of quitting smoking with cigarettes? That’s right. Soon you’ll be able to stock up on the prescription cartons six weeks at a time… Well – at least according to the graphic, that’s what 22nd Century “believes”… confidence is high…

In 2016, I predicted prescribing smoking. In 2018, I also realized over 100 million dollars was invested by FDA and other government agencies, and “public health” criminals would support it……. What’s the return on investment?

Here’s how they plan to submit their PMTA: (Note, I repeat, confidence is high – see if you notice the Chantix/Phizer reference once you’re in there…)

Trump told Azar he regrets involvement in vaping policy

What? This is about health, jobs, and personal choice for adults. There should be NO compromise with political front groups. I would encourage every citizen to ask WHY any health policy decision is deemed political. Seems we’re on some nerves, and by all means we’re loud, but I don’t believe we’re loud enough.

Trump told Azar he regrets involvement in vaping policy


Watch: Kat Timpf Warns FDA’s New Vape Ban ‘May Kill People’

When there are warnings, I would appreciate it if Kat would be in charge because she explains “the perfect example of what happens when government officials insist on legislating what they don’t understand“…. and that’s the truth.

Watch: Kat Timpf Warns FDA’s New Vape Ban ‘May Kill People’


Professor “Puff-N-Stuff” Glantz said what? Before he steps down as UCSF Tobacco Center director, he’s got some ‘splaining to do.

The only way “combustion” happens with e-cigarettes is when researchers purposely set them on fire.


E-cigarettes and the creation of ignorance

“You will have noticed, of course, the complete and utter disregard for the use of proper scientific language here with my writing, and it is deliberate.”

Robert Innes will take you down a hole with ignorance, language, science, and quite a bit more…

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.

Well…. I have a silly question:

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

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,

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.

Changes in E-Cigarette Use Behaviors and Dependence in Long-term E-Cigarette Users

“Findings suggest that the risk of relapse to cigarette smoking is low, and e-cigarette-related dependence remains stable in long-term e-cigarette users.”

Changes in E-Cigarette Use Behaviors and Dependence in Long-term E-Cigarette Users


A Randomized Trial of E-Cigarettes versus Nicotine-Replacement Therapy

The e-cigarette group reported greater declines in the incidence of cough and phlegm production from baseline to 52 weeks than did the nicotine-replacement group NOTE: Funded by the National Institute for Health Research and Cancer Research UK.

The CDC and Vaping: A Perfect Storm

“When is it appropriate for the government to misinform drug users? In light of the rash of severe lung injuries caused by almost exclusively illicit vape products, anti-vaping sentiments are building upon a perfect storm.”

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.

Like we have for years.


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?”

Compliance Check Inspections of Tobacco Product Retailers (through 08/31/2019)

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.”

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.

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.
