Pallone thinks you’re stupid

I can’t help that Francis Pallone thinks you are stupid. Take that up with him.


Speaking of being young and stupid

Did I ever tell you… there was a… oh never mind.

House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban

Because it isn’t about… well… yes, yes it is.

House Democrats go full nanny state and pass overkill vape flavor ban


How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens

Oh wait, here’s how Francis deflects his own criminal enterprise with criminal and civil penalties for others, but not him.

Here’s what else #HR2339 had in it that caused a ruckus.

How ‘Trickle-Down Justice’ Adds More Hurdles for Returning Citizens


STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

Back to reality. The house led by pied piper and top nanny-fuss-bucket Pallone had this dropped on his desk the night before.

Highlights:

“Unfortunately, however, this bill contains provisions that are unsupported by the available evidence regarding harm reduction…”

” another provision that raises constitutional concerns “

” The Administration cannot support H.R. 2339’s counterproductive efforts to restrict access to products that may provide a less harmful alternative to millions of adults who smoke “combustible cigarettes.”

“The Administration is also concerned about the constitutionality of a provision…”

“This standard may not satisfy the stringent vagueness test applied to regulations of speech under the Constitution’s Due Process Clause.

“the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting regular surveillance of—and, when appropriate, taking enforcement measures …”

Do you really need to read it? Well, there it is.

Call For Another Retraction

As if Professor Puff-N-Stuff isn’t embarrassed enough. Well, he certainly is not, and his funding tells him so.

Call For Another Retraction



The Politics of Vaping

That it “is” about politics (and money, and egos) rather than health still, after 5+ years still blows my mind. But, as I wrote late last year, there is a timeline where we went from being decimated to being FACE to FACE with opponents in the White House.

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

Junk Vape Heart Attack Study Pulled – But Damage is Done

Journal retracts hotly contested paper on vaping and heart attacks

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:

Did Somebody Leave the Gaslight On?

Don’t think for one second this tactic isn’t being abused, common practice and used well in the dark recesses of government… see what I did there…

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.

Did FDA Create a Regulatory Loophole for Puff Bars?


Wait, did the government just contract Disney to advertise to children? I’m not giving you the link in Jerry’s tweet. I’ll let you decide if you will do that all on your own.
