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.

Vaping Taxes Tempt States but Bring Challenges


No sale to minors

In the real world, Keith Gossett’s “Bucky’s Vape Shop” in Columbus, Georgia has a short 44 second video, with audio (shared with permission).

No sale to minors.

You Don’t Know Nicotine

This “yet to be released” film is about nicotine, not vaping. Controversy is controversy. I’ll take it.



Vaping and the Mic

Tony Ottomanelli takes the subject of Mike Peterson to task as one of the voices in the industry.

Australian researchers claim to have found the mythical gateway!

Well well well. Exaggerated, inconsistent claims from down under.

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.

FDA Performance Measures

Smoking is a government-run business. You people need to stop quitting smoking before they go out of business.

The U.S. FDA’s “keep smoking we need the money” train involves predictions and profit.

So far, government, public “health” groups, researchers, tobacco “control” & other funded “experts” have record losses totalling $72.96 Billion dollars in 11 short years.

Paper Links E-Cigarette Use To Child Abuse

Imagine if you will, a chance to use research to improve… oh never mind. “Non-Profit” groups abusing children as pawns in anti-ecig propaganda is child abuse.

The link to this idiotic article below uses a (recommended) “do not link” to prevent (it) from improving their websites’ position in search engines.

Less smoking is concerning for at least 6 “health” groups

It seems “less smoking” is a concern – and an investigation is warranted. Of course…

Their problem? The “unauthorized” claims that the company’s e-cigarettes help users stop smoking. I remember one of the brilliant ads showing “Quit. Start smoking again“. Thirty times. Why? Because it’s truthful on the average number of times smokers try to quit (here). Brilliant. That you’ve allegedly pissed off your secret partners with Tobacco-Free Kids? Even though I despise you, well done, Juul.

These groups aren’t going after the companies making “authorized” government “approved” claims of patches or gums being “helpful” to smokers, unethically, and more specifically, from themselves? They’ve known these facts since at least 2002.

Even Stan “Stuff & Puff” Glantz “believes” nicotine replacement therapy “should only be available if the smoker commits to regular counseling to use it properly”. He states in the same article “The tobacco companies are generally 20 or 30 years ahead of the public health community in their thinking about their issues”… which gives me a whole lot of nope trusting an alleged “expert” with 30+ years playing one around the country.

I don’t use the “do not link” for this one – because I want them to know where this hit comes from. I also enjoy it when I get hits from them on occasion. (“Hi, Matt!”)

Nicotine and Brain Damage

LOTS of “nicotine” “can hurt” the “adolescent brain” lately… up to 25 years old I’ve seen, heard, read about 7,000 times.

“Wait a second. . . . Nicotine does not interfere with cognitive ability.” ~ Dr. Nora Volkow of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in 2014.

Thanks to Mike Peterson for the graphic!!!

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.

Researchers Try Nicotine To Treat Memory Loss

More positive involvement using the word, (and the chemical) “nicotine”. This is good. This makes people who know better nervous. Excellent. More research I say! Think about it… if kids thought nicotine is good for you, they would avoid it like… oh never mind. I also secretly hope there is a use for those patches taking up shelf space.

Researchers Try Nicotine To Treat Memory Loss


Federal Communications Commission

Speaking of “The Children™”, ‘one’ Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants to stop less harmful products being advertised because of no other reason: “even if they are targeted at kids”.

Meet Jessica Rosenworcel. Jessica is an “Impatient optimist. Mom, wife,” and of all things an “inveterate coffee drinker.” Huh.

The responses to her are in this link


Kristen Noll-Marsh has a question. (Click to enlarge).


Brendan Carr, also Commissioner at FCC, thinks otherwise.


Dr. Gardner has the answer for the children ™ :


CDC Misleads by calling E-cigarettes a ‘Tobacco Product’

No kidding. Already established abroad, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has incorrectly defined…. oh never mind. I am grateful for the American Council on Science and Health taking this on.

The Arrogance of Public Health Advocacy

Let’s see… covered misleading, covered the children™. How about some arrogance? Are you like what is described as the “average American” who is “resentful toward those who tell him or her how to live”? So am I.

This is an eye-opening perspective from a Doctor, in proper form:

The Arrogance of Public Health Advocacy


Vaping Taxes in the United States and Around the World

There should be no tax imposed on a less harmful product. Period. I say NO more taxes on cigarettes OR vaping products, but they’re doing it anyway.

No stranger to my blog, Jim McDonald writes for Vaping 360, and is one I admire. He took on vaping taxes around the world:

Surgeon General Watch: Data, Snippets, and Narratives

As we slip into the third week of my one-man #SGWatch on Twitter, I took a harder look at what Dr. Adams says, and does, on his personal account – and what he doesn’t on his professional account as U.S. Surgeon General. Oh, and confusion. A general mess. That’s covered as well:

Vaping In The News – December 22nd 2018

news14




Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.

“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”


The “Public Health” Industrial-Complex Behind the Anti-Vaping Push ~ Consumer Engagement for GFN2019 ~ Stevens Point leaders update e-cig ordinance ~ TCAPS Will Install Vape Detectors in Middle, High Schools ~ Altria board approves $13 billion investment in e-cigarette company Juul ~ We Need to Reduce the Harms of Draconian Tobacco Policies ~ Federal Officials Obsessed By Teen Vaping, But Ignore Teen Drinking and Toking ~ Before you go


The “Public Health” Industrial-Complex Behind the Anti-Vaping Push
Lobbying, restrictions, coordination, corruption, hysteria…  sounds like a coup to me.
“The anti-vaping push from public health organizations is coordinated, well-funded, and tied to powerful entities in government and corporate America. According to federal data, however, there is extremely limited evidence of any ‘epidemic’.”

Consumer Engagement for GFN2019

From our friend, Jessica Harding:

“The theme for GFN2019 will be  “It’s time to talk about nicotine” and it is vital that the people who use safer nicotine products are at the heart of that conversation.

The GFN organisers are keen to give an even higher profile to consumers and consumer organisations than in previous years and I have been asked to help with that.”

Consumer Engagement for GFN2019


Stevens Point leaders update e-cig ordinance

The article states city leaders voted across the board to “make it more difficult to get e-cigarettes in the hands of teens.

Now – it’s a fifty-dollar fine and possibly a court appearance if a minor is caught with one. Among other anomalies in the article (my bold/underlining for emphasis):

“Officers in Stevens Point previously had to prove if the cigarette had nicotine in it but it wasn’t possible to test in the field.”

Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t mention fines or consequences for cigarettes or the Synar Amendment.

“Our goal here is to do more of a deterrent…not necessarily catch students…but deter students”

Now – if you must read it again…

I for one can’t imagine any kid figuring out how to get around this… and for the record, were there or will there also be “smoke” detectors?

We Need to Reduce the Harms of Draconian Tobacco Policies

Nothing says “tell people what to do” more than telling people what to do and how not to do it – and getting paid to do so from those very people.

See, discrimination, embarrasment, fines, taxes, custody battles, imprisonment, executions… well, any means necessary to get people to do what you want them to do are clearly the best…

Wait a minute…

Via the well respected Marewa Glover, down the rabbit hole you go.

Dear Family, Friends, Parents, Educators and Medical Professionals: “The Real Cost”.

warning exist


Dear Family, Friends, Parents, Educators and Medical Professionals:

I consider you all intelligent and capable of thinking for yourselves. Each of you have the power of many that I cannot have alone. I consider the depth and importance you hold with your personal and professional lives.  I also consider that YOU have a responsibility, response, and an ability – with the vast outreach you have – to make a difference. I’m going with the theory that we’re all only within “six degrees of separation”.

I understand in order to ask for support, you need facts.


OWL
Years ago, Dad had a motto for his business. “Know for a fact”. I’ve adopted that for this very personal message. I hope to briefly educate and enlighten you in the following few minutes of your our lives. 

Pardon The Intrusion

I do not like my family and friends being misinformed lied to.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has made what I normally kick, scream and rant about on my Twitter account, my other Facebook page, and here on my blog, much, MUCH more personal. It’s about informed public consumer choices. It’s about rights. It is about you.

“When tobacco use decreases, less smoking occurs.”

Those Damn Kids

 

Are you a parent?  I’ll let you decide if trusted “non-profit” groups like “Tobacco-Free Kids”  (created by Johnson & Johnson, makers of smoking “cessation” products and then secretly negotiated with tobacco giant Philip Morris) are marketing cigarettes and e-cigarettes to children here.  Or  trustworthy. (I’ll wait.)

Remember when the public health community and media claimed e-cigarettes were a “gateway” TO smoking? Huh.


Think about the statement Dr. Gottlieb has made about “marketing to children”. Are you able to exercise your parenting skills? Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the FDA doesn’t think so. Like cigarettes, the law states anyone underage (18 or 21) cannot purchase these NON-tobacco products legally.

What you aren’t being told is these restrictions could lead teenagers back to smoking. The FDA wants to convince the world (whether they smoke or not) using rhetoric, proof by assertion, pseudoscience sound bytes and the ever-popular “Think of the children™ that e-cigarettes are “just as dangerous” as smoking. They’re not. While I’ll try not to bore you, there is data, science and research (and links within this blog). There is no doubt.

 

By the way, while Dr. Gottlieb pretends “nicotine” is the problem, something he can’t prove, he is encouraging more smoking with the help of front groups and other officials.

 

Pfizer, maker of the “FDA Approved” drug Chantix (once black-boxed due to thousands of attempted and over 500 suicides ) was given to “adolescents” in the United States ages 12-16. They failed.


The struggle is real

Why aren’t “approved” nicotine patches and gums being passed out to teens like candy? I’m saying, and I’ll keep saying it: “If “children” are already smoking, they’re smokers regardless of age.” I’ll direct you to Shiela Vakharia’s statement below.



cigarettes

Smoking or not

If you’re a smoker, I’m not telling you to stop smoking. (Smokers can go here.) Because vaping businesses are no longer allowed to tell you, I’m telling you e-cigarettes are a safer, healthier, smoke-free choice. It is an alternative for smokers who want to quit.  Nothing more, nothing less. I’m telling you the FDA is trying to take away a choice that has worked for millions. A choice that works. This choice is being threatened.

I was told “stop smoking” since I was old enough to get caught smoking! I was told it was “nicotine“. It’s not. Have you ever caught a child stealing nicotine patches to feed their “addiction”?


Whiteboard nicotine lie
It wasn’t so easy. “Government approved” patches and gums didn’t work for me, but I didn’t know why. I never thought to ask about the 93% failure rates. I was told it was willpower. It’s not. I was told I wasn’t trying hard enough. I wasn’t, but I didn’t know smokers average 30 attempts before they quit. I was told a lot of things. I’ve been lied to before, but not to this grand scale. They call it a sin tax. They’re addicted to taxing smokers.

msa lucrative

I didn’t realize the discrimination and hatred against smokers is completely perpetuated by money. To call the anti-smoking movement “brainwashing” is an understatement. It is professional bullying. I didn’t realize it was a billion dollar industry – funded BY smoking. If this scale of hate was directed at any other group, there would be riots in the streets. Leave smokers alone.

Can you imagine

FDA will always promote science based decision making…”

~Dr. Scott Gottlieb

Cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values.

Here’s Dr. Gottlieb and his sidekick Mitch “Zippy” Zeller – of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration exerting their arrogance mental “cognitive dissonance” disorder.

Gottlieb and Zeller large

In the process of regulation, restrictions, taxes and bans, Dr. Gottlieb is going to encumber 10 Million smokers, and millions more who may choose to purchase them as an alternative to smoking based on “attitudes, beliefs and intentions“.

The Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration…. what?

gottlieb belief....JPG

 

Dr. GottLIEb feels the need to use the word “convincingly”.

gottlieb convincingly

I’ve got another word: Manipulation.

 

Added November 8th, 2018:

So much for an “epidemic” via the retail sector.

“During this past summer, 96.7% of the retailers passed FDA-sponsored compliance checks by not selling an e-cigarette to an underage youth.”

This is 16.7% ABOVE federal guidelines.👇

The Synar Amendment “requires” an 80% compliance rate.

NATO Responds to FDA’s Potential E-Cigarette Sales Restrictions


Understanding

As a “professional smoker” for about 35 years, I found, by accident, an amazing product. An e-cigarette. Within 48 hours, it worked. It also worked for Janice. It has worked for some of you reading this, my family and friends. Sometimes it doesn’t. One son (23) does both and the other (20) still chooses to smoke.

For a while… I walked around happy I wasn’t smoking. My cough – a constant companion most of my life, had abandoned me in about a week. I was breathing better and felt better. I thought – well, it can’t be worse than smoking. I was both uncaring and blind to the issues and the controversy surrounding “e-cigarettes”. On the news, as you’ve all seen, I saw (a) report of “dangers” and I thought, no, you bastards – you are lying. You’re not telling the whole story.

david quote

On a cold winter night, I found David Goerlitz’ blog. He is the “Former Winston man”. In his blog, he explains the corruption from ANTI-tobacco groups (Body Parts™ groups – Heart, Lung, Cancer Associations) he WORKED for. These “non-profits” are funded by smoking. David FIRED me UP.

david with gottlieb.jpg

I read anything and everything. I started a blog. I joined Twitter. (Turns out, scientists, researchers and experts who don’t lie are real and on Twitter.) I joined Facebook groups to learn more.

Dave fired me up. At that point, I was on a mission to change the world. Without knowing better – within days – on December 17th, 2014 – I created a survey to show what others like me already knew to show YOU and others – our experiences… 7,238 people took it around the world. Around the world. Proudly, It’s been used and quoted in a few places. My mission for that survey was to tell other smokers there is another option. A place they could read about what others doing it – said. Reducing or eliminating asthma medications, lower blood pressure – and much, much more.

I found quickly – the experts, media, and (no surprise) government do not care about the truth. They don’t care about facts. Wait. They care about manipulating the facts. I don’t like you not knowing for a fact.

“The Real Cost”

Fear is a lack of knowledge. Knowledge is power.

The Food and Drug Administration will be spending money placing propaganda in your minds called “The Real Cost“. They” want to regulate, restrict, tax and ban a choice by using “children” as a ploy.

taxes ecigs.jpg

Here’s where you come in. I’d like you to consider how you can help, and it won’t cost you a dime. I’m asking you to stand up. Raise your hand. Question those in authority. Engage. If you have doubts, questions, concerns, thoughts… ask me. If you have friends, colleagues, associates, family, medical professionals… direct them to me. If I do not know the answer, I’ll ask someone else.

Please consider a *free* membership by joining the consumer group CASAA.

They released this comprehensive explanation today:

“We believe that even if youth use were increasing, it is still a public health benefit – provided that use of smoking products continues to fall.”

“Epidemic?” A Perspective of Youth Vaping & Tobacco Use Trends


It isn’t just me. Oliver Kershaw also explains it here:

“Treating the symptom, not the cause – is never an effective outcome.”
You are my friends and family. I wouldn’t want you thinking funding is the root of the created opioid epidemic, either.
Turns out, in my mission to change the world, the world has changed me.
Each of you have the power of many that I cannot have alone. I consider you all intelligent and able to think for yourselves, and I thank you for your time.

This, from Diane Caruana – goes right along with what I said above.

Vaping In The News – September 15th, 2018

 

Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.

“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”




FDA Hands Vaping a Blow, Sends Tobacco a Save ~ FDA Ought to Reconsider Stance on Youth Vaping ~ Scott Gottlieb ~ Vaping, Vultures and Cars ~ Steps to address a non-existent problem ~ All people like better products. Teenagers are people ~ Vapor Technology Association (VTA) Response ~ American Vaping Association (AVA) Response ~ Fontem Ventures respond to FDA statement ~ Tobacco Stocks ~ Survey ~ Hand Check




Make no mistake, Dr. Gottlieb has threatened consumers who have found a healthier, smoke-free, safer alternative to smoking.

Consumers, and the entire industry ARE at risk.

Along with “experts” in public health, politicians, “health” groups and media, Tobacco-Free Kids has manipulated the public campaign (and the market) for months.

Dr. Gottlieb finally responded in their favor by saying “The FDA has unpublished preliminary data that shows a 75 percent increase in e-cigarette use among high school students this year compared with 2017″ and threatening (primarily) Vuse, Blu, JUUL, MarkTen XL, and Logic.

These brands specifically are – evidently – keeping “youth” from smoking cigarettes.


FDA Hands Vaping a Blow, Sends Tobacco a Save

Consumer group Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life  is questioning the integrity of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Dr. Gottleib – or lack thereof.  Here is that respons to Dr. Gottlieb’s ultimatum.

(Full disclosure: I am a member of the board of THR4Life.)

FDA Ought to Reconsider Stance on Youth Vaping

Lindsay Stroud:

FDA Ought to Reconsider Stance on Youth Vaping


Scott Gottlieb:

What Gottlieb is portraying to the public is:

Cigarettes are safe and have no time limit.

Combustible cigarettes are not a problem.

 



Vaping, Vultures and Cars

Our friend, Alan, has an explanation:

Vaping, Vultures and Cars


Steps to address a non-existent problem

Our friend, Paul – also has an explanation to the problem that doesn’t exist.

Steps to address a non-existent problem


All people like better products.

As a father of two (20 & 23 year olds) I remember my sons teenage years… like it was just a few years ago.

Carl makes a bold statement: Teenagers are people. Therefore….

“discouraging teenage vaping probably encourages teenage smoking”

All people like better products. Teenagers are people. Therefore…


Vapor Technology Association (VTA) Response

“Unfortunately, FDA and Commissioner Gottlieb took a giant step backwards against the best interest of public health. By threatening an industry – and technology that millions of adult smokers are successfully using to reduce or quit smoking deadly cigarettes–FDA is venturing into dangerous territory.”

Vapor Technology Association (VTA) Responds to FDA’s Announcement


American Vaping Association (AVA) Response

“It is absolutely absurd and a perversion of how regulatory agencies are supposed to approach their work.”

Hand Check

Last week my wife and I spent a bit of time at my first ever vape convention with Fig RamseyJulie Woessner David Goerlitz, James Jarvis, Amy Netherton, Jessica and Kevin Lacy, and many more great people trying to help both consumers and the industry in Bowling Green, Kentucky at Vapor Mania Expo.

I had a chance to see, learn, understand and listen to some of the best in the country.

Here are my hand checks from that event.

 

As you can tell, I’m pretty proud.

Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.

“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”




Strategic and ethical issues in antismoking ~ Why Tobacco Stocks Have Lost Around 20% This Year ~ Juul Madness ~ Changing patterns of first e-cigarette flavor ~ A Tragic Story ~ Truth Initiative Endorses and Condemns Vaping ~ Regulation of Flavors in Tobacco Products ~ Banning Flavors: The Core Argument Is Based On Gaslighting, Not Evidence~ Naked 100 eLiquid Donates $50K to CASAA ~ Speaking of Trolls

Strategic and ethical issues in antismoking
“Official guidelines of antismoking message development do not exist. Written codes of ethics for tobacco control work were found to be nonexistent.”
“Most of our interviewees did not use and were not supportive of the creation of codes of ethics for the design and execution of antismoking ads.”
No one is asking questions about this? Color me surprised

Why Tobacco Stocks Have Lost Around 20% This Year

Teen and adult rates are at their lowest points in recorded history. Shareholders should have been paying attention to the big companies long before this. Predicted by many including me throughout this blog, it was bound to happen.
While the “tobacco control” factions of the world are lying, regulating, restricting, taxing and banning e-cigarettes to maintain their sustainability cash flow, The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World is looking at sustainability for farmers, and other nicotine products.
Color me surprised again.

Juul Madness

Tobacco-Free Kids pretends it is madness, only it isn’t.

(Journalism, it does exist.)

Juul Madness


Changing patterns of first e-cigarette flavor used and current flavors

Over twenty-thousand people. “Restricting the availability of non-tobacco flavors could reduce adult smokers’ interest in switching to e-cigarettes or rationalize a return to cigarette smoking…” Pretty important.

Changing patterns of first e-cigarette flavor used and current flavors used by 20,836 adult frequent e-cigarette users in the USA


A Tragic Story

In January a slew of reports came out in the ever-so-popular and irresponsible style of “journalists” with crayons flying… falsely blaming an e-cigarette / nicotine for the tragic death of a child. Well…

“Lets call them opinionists”    ~ David Goerlitz

The “autopsy showed that no nicotine was present in his system.”

From me:

Nicotine is NOT Cause of Death in 14-year-old


Truth Initiative Endorses and Condemns Vaping

It’s GOOD! It’s BAD! But let us explain ourselves!

Jim McDonald: Impeccable as always.

Truth Initiative Endorses and Condemns Vaping


Banning Flavors: The Core Argument Is Based On Gaslighting, Not Evidence

And then there’s Carl V. Phillips. Also impeccable as always.

Post-truth is not just about lying, but about gaslighting — causing people to systematically doubt what they can easily observe and thus paving the way to create a false “reality.”

Banning Flavors: The Core Argument Is Based On Gaslighting, Not Evidence


Regulation of Flavors in Tobacco Products

Iowa Attorney General, Thomas J Miller:

“We do not believe that FDA can reliably distinguish between harms and benefits that arise from flavors in non-combustible nicotine products, or provide assurance that its interventions would not cause more harm than good.”

Regulation of Flavors in Tobacco Products


Naked 100 eLiquid Donates $50K to CASAA

The title says it all:

Naked 100 eLiquid Donates $50K to CASAA


Speaking of trolls:

This  –  from everybody’s pal, Simon Chapman – new to me… and hilarous.

In fact, some of you regular readers are in here…

On – line abuse and trolling by pro – tobacco and vaping activists


Trolling a troll.

On another note: Bareham, a self-proclaimed something or other in tobacco control… and a Simon Chapman “minion” (hence the avatar I suppose).I’m not sure who “Cali Tobacco Control” is, but as a parody account, I say bravo.
