Teen Dies After Hospital Mistakes Stroke for Nicotine Effects
Last week I put this out, Jim McDonald covers this tragic story here:
THR4Life Comments on FDA Regulation of Flavors
On July 16, 2018, Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life submitted comment to the Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) in regard to the regulation of flavors in tobacco products.

Smokers’ Rights Group Sues HUD Over Rule that Bans Smoking Inside Public Housing Apartment
Don’t be fooled, rights are rights.
Harry Shapiro with Nicotine Science and Policy takes criminal intent on – in a whole new light:
“English law is called gross negligence manslaughter……..can also can be committed simply by omission”…
Please give this its due attention from Harry with Nicotine Science and Policy…
Young People Adopt Vaping as Their Smoking Rate Plummets
There is a bottom line, but that isn’t what the government wants you to believe.

JUUL Uses Politicians as Marketing Tools
They didn’t read the Gallup poll.
Via Jim McDonald:
Juul is being sued…

Of Mice and Menace:
Why Rodent Studies Of Vapor Products Are Meaningless
“Mice are not little four legged people!” ~ @VladTheVaper
From Carl V. Phillips:
The Food and Drug Administration would like to have all e-liquid manufacturers continue to affirm the government lie to consumers by yelling fire in a crowded theater.
Minimally or “non-addictive” nicotine
Let me remind you of the accolades of lower nicotine:
Cliff Douglass of the American Cancer Society – thinks lower nicotine in cigarettes is “Absolutely everything”
NCI Director Ned Sharpless says “…good news for treating cancer and preventing cancer”
FDA’s Scott Gottlieb claims “Lower nicotine in the same product”
Matt Myers of Tobacco-Free Kids says “…to use products that won’t kill them”
Basing “minimally or non-addictive” levels of nicotine by lowering cigarette consumption by 1.6 less cigarettes… over two years… is a public health win? Here’s what they came up with after two years:
238 “non-daily” smokers… what?
over the course of two years...
lowered their smoking by 1.6 cigarettes…
“real-time reporting” and “cigarette butt counts.”
No – to slow progress… is this is what the Food and Drug Administration likes?
This headline calls it “staggering“.
You can check my math here:
More Proof from FDA Population Data Showing E-Cigarettes As Popular Quit-Smoking Aids
“it is possible that they may play a bigger role in assisting smokers to quit combustible tobacco.”
Walnuts are drugs
Speaking of conjecture and nicotine being defined as “tobacco“, now…
I wonder how they vape… and if we vape ’em, they also a tobacco product…
