Perverse Psychology

Reader warning/disclaimer:

You will be triggered, you may, could, might, or are likely not to return for the rest of my news this week.

I’ll take my chances.

Perverse Psychology


Trigger

If that didn’t trigger you… (Blame Michelle Minton, I warned you), I’ve made a nifty-diftly little meme for you to connect the dots from the FDA, flowing through non-profit political front groups posing as “public health”.

They’re blaming YOU in business for something THEY created – and they’re getting away with it. But, think for yourself. I’m here to help. You’re welcome.

HK Ban Prop Dropped

“It welcomed the science-based approach that embraces the concept of tobacco harm reduction”… see what Dave has to say:

First PMTA from an Indie Vape Manufacturer Submitted

The deadline looms… so…

First PMTA from an Indie Vape Manufacturer Submitted


Fresh off the press:

What? WHAT??? W H A T ? ? ? That just can’t be!


The Pleasure Principle revisited…

David Dorn, if you remember, was at the Global Forum on Nicotine in 2016. He made a speech. Now in June of 2020, Samantha below finds it, loves it, and explains it. David’s work did not, and will not, go unnoticed or forgotten as long as I’m around.

THIS is another reason I love Twitter and do what I ‘do’.


Associations of Flavored e-Cigarette Uptake With Subsequent Smoking Initiation and Cessation

17,929 participants? Nice! It’s not as large as Dr. Farsalino’s largest ever found here with 69,233 participants, and submitted to the FDA as Docket No. FDA-2017-N-6565_FARSALINOS.pdf. (We’ve NEVER heard a word since that I’m aware of).

“In this study, adults who began vaping nontobacco-flavored e-cigarettes were more likely to quit smoking than those who vaped tobacco flavors.”

Their link is here:

Associations of Flavored e-Cigarette Uptake With Subsequent Smoking Initiation and Cessation


The past is not the future in tobacco control

It really, really isn’t.

We should encourage product innovation and support civil dialogue on issues related to smoking harm reduction.

We really should.

The past is not the future in tobacco control

Finally, I hope you can bear an hour and a half of listening to me with Brent Stafford of RegWatch, he invited me (yay!) on to discuss a few things… I was honored to be invited and followed a great number of people I’ve admired over the years on his show.

I want to thank Cindy Schmidt specifically for reminding me of the reason I do what I do, and the perspective and kind words she had at the beginning of the show, and for Mike Peterson’s words and of course, vapers.org.uk.

Collusion | Dirty Details of the Coordinated effort to Kill Vaping

Are you paying attention?

Censorship of information and policy, funding interests behind the scenes to fit a controlled narrative of non-profit organizations (of any issue) is clear.


Brent Stafford works very hard with Regulator Watch Canada to disseminate fact from fiction with Michelle Minton here in the U.S.

I, and thousands have been saying this for a very long time.


State of Public Health: Failure

Similar to what I hope you watched just above, I searched for “positive” statements from “health groups“. It took me a substantial amount of time to find them. It makes me “feel and believe” they can say they’ve “said” it, they’re just (unsurprisingly) very quiet about it.

State of Public Health: Failure


Smokeless Tobacco Can Save Lives, But Only if Smokers Have All the Facts

Just the facts. Is that so hard to ask for? Jeff Stier explains.

#SGWatch

On the 5th of February, Surgeon General was quoted below saying nicotine is “pound for pound, as addictive as heroin”:

Then, on the 7th I see this. So far during my ‘one-man’ Surgeon General watch I’ve linked my challenge, Aaron Biebert has asked Dr. Adams politely for an interview, and the thread gets more interesting by the day.

For the record we’ve gone from a definitive statement of “pound for pound, as addictive as heroin”, to “a medical viewpoint-& it’s complicated” in two days.

At least it isn’t about feelings.

This thread gets longer by the day.

It is about church

If you don’t believe this idiotic fight is already a political and money-motivated movement, don’t start now. That said, I’d better see you dressing nice and in your pews on Sunday.
