Vaping In The News – October 14th, 2017

hourglass

As I put this weeks edition together, I pondered all the time and public OUR money wasted over the past 10+ years by experts – tracking tweets, buying media, pretending to do studies and claiming science… Then, I wonder…. what have they tried to accomplish… and what other much more important items they’ve done the same with, or ignored in the process.

This is Vaping In The News for the week ending October 14th, 2017


Instead of babbling, I’ll lead off with a spirited tweet from Ann, who I (and others) miss dearly.


Johnson Creek is going out of business

Their statement:

Important! Johnson Creek is going out of business


Science Lesson

One of the best ways to learn is to listen and read. That’s why I like reading Carl’s blog. I don’t always agree with Carl, and that is how I learn.

“Ecigs are a replacement for tobacco products. They are not a replacement for lost tobacco taxes.”

I’ve said this a thousand times.

In this instance, there should be NO tax imposed on vaping products (other than normal sales tax). Period. We agree.

Marathon Man

Chris Baxter, who I’ve followed over on Twitter:

Bloomberg

Tobacco 21

While the public is, you can’t be convinced this will work. You’re too savvy for that.

Tobacco 21 Is a Catch-22


Denver Is Hiring Teen Cigarette Narcs

Where I’ve covered the Synar Amendment and the recreation of the problems here in June of 2017, I made a prediction.

In my (highly acclaimed by me) opinion, as the age of purchase was 18, they are having a difficult time keeping their percentage at acceptable levels, and now want to raise it to 21 to recreate the problem.

Well… imagine my surprise when I read (bold is my emphasis)

“….the department hopes to snag even more vendors, projecting a 23 percent noncompliance rate by the end of 2017.”

Imagine my surprise from one of my favorite rodents, Phil:

Here’s that breach, including e-cigarettes:

Just so you can see the screams from Matt Myers – it is close enough to Halloween to hear him clearly.

Another from one of my favorite bloggers, and consider him a friend: Paul:
