WE, The People

October 1st, Columbus, Ohio Statehouse rally.

Consumers: WE, the people.

That’s YOU.

Over the past few years I’ve seen and heard variations of “we should go to Washington and hold a rally.” Well, dear fellow consumer we, the people, it is beyond time. Suddenly, when President Trump tweeted about vaping, we are IN the national spotlight.

Now is the time for we, the people to come together in one voice – and make our presence known in our nation’s capital. Millions have bravely gone before us, now it is our turn.


“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.

What does that mean to we, the people? As long as you’re of legal age, smoke if you like. Or don’t. To me, it means freedom of choice of a less harmful alternative to smoking.. and that includes flavors.

Dateline: December 16, 1773, BOSTON.

Boston Tea Party

I’m confident American small business owners and consumers alike are familiar with the history that helped frame the foundation of the United States.

Enraged by control, taxation, tyranny, and demanding freedom – the Sons of Liberty (merchants/small business owners) decided, defiantly, to throw themselves a tea party in the Boston Harbor. They became #louder.

Before this, boycotts and smuggling – black market – tea was prominent.

Now replace the word tea – with cigarettes. Next, replace the words “No taxation without representation” with “lessharmfulproducts“.

October 1st, concerned citizen from Akron attending the Columbus, Ohio rally.

This is our “Boston Tea Party”.

Despite efforts to circumvent the movement we, the people, vaping products are removing cigarette tax revenue from the government. That’s what small businesses and consumers we, the people, are doing. This is our “Boston Tea Party”.

#WashingtonDC. Harm reduction. We the people. November 9th.

#Louder.


Who

No photo description available.

The United Vapers Alliance (UVA) was formed as a 501(c)(4) organization earlier this year. The sole intent is to educate the public and politicians regarding the benefits of harm reduction via vapor products, and the right to keep flavors on the market as a consumer choice.


Why:

Because the government is WRONG. Our messaging needs to be clear, simple, peaceful, and united. Consumers, we the people’s rights are being infringed, restricted, and may possibly be extinguished by government actions and policy all over the nation. The time for silence is over. The time to be heard is NOW.  For too long, we have waited for our politicians to do the right thing.  No more.

“So whether or not we choose to believe the FDA’s stated intent to entertain the re-introduction of flavored vapes at a later date, this is, at least, a de facto permanent prohibition for smaller operators.” Source

THOUSANDS of citizens like Susan Ripley (below), have created small businesses, creating jobs by investing in this life-changing technology. Now they are fighting for their rights – along with ours.

How:

United Vapers Alliance will LOUDLY inform Congress and the FDA, that if they do NOTHING, 99% of all vape products will be removed from the market by May, 2020.  United Vapers Alliance will fight for the right to live a less harmful lifestyle and see OUR children grow. 

We are an estimated thirteen+ (13+) million strong, with families and friends who have seen the positive change that vapor products have provided.  If our politicians will not listen to our voices we, the people, then our voices will be heard at the ballot box this 2020 election.

Together, consumers will rally with ONE voice, ONE mission, ONE message, and will shake the very foundations of power in Washington D.C..

Footnote:

This Washington, D.C. voyage has the same importance for me personally as my trip to Milwaukee did. This is history in the making. Monumental. I want to stand beside you, the people, with some of the loudest voices representing our country, and to be heard. To change the conversation.

This country was founded on we, the people. Someone was standing up for your rights, the rights of others, and those generations who will follow. This country was founded on #louder voices. This is no different. I consider myself one who speaks for many. I hope to see you there, and don’t be shy. I’ll be the 6′ redhead looking forward to standing beside you and shaking your hand.

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Um. Yes, yes it is. This short survey should take less than 2 minutes. It would make the Georgia vaping community very happy to see this filled out. Please share with your groups.

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

This piece from Dr. Sheila Vakharia, Helen Redmond, and Dr. Marewa Glover covers panic, prohibition and tobacco harm reduction from three well-respected professionals.

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

Measurements of electronic cigarette-generated particles for the evaluation of lung cancer risk of active and passive users

Pretty serious information being ignored by the masses in “public health”, I got a bit excited seeing this – and realized it was from 2018. Stranger, for some reason I didn’t have it in my bookmarks.

The explanation is “Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk is 5 orders of magnitude lower than that of mainstream traditional cigarettes smoke, and also lower than the guideline values defined by EPA and WHO.”

The explanation below – by Thad Marney via CASAA’s facebook group, (you are a member, right?) is critical to my understanding.

“For the record, one order of magnitude lower represents numbers that are at least 90% smaller, two orders of magnitude is at least 99% smaller, etc… So 5 orders of magnitude means e-cigarettes generate at least 99.999% less Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk than smoking, according to these measurements.”

I did not know that, Thad, and I thank you for explaining it.

“Think of the children™.”

The “debate” among vapers over the years of having children “for our side” in a courtroom continues. I’m all for it. Others not so much. The other side hides behind children. It’s two minutes long, and should be done at every hearing across the country.

The Grubby Face Of An Epidemic

Speaking of ‘epidemics’… Dave himself says “It is shocking and readers of a nervous disposition are advised to skip to the next article.”

Now you can make an informed choice. I crack me up.

Speaking of manipulation, Jim McDonald explains.

Why is America’s biggest tobacco company trying to increase the legal smoking age to 21?

For the serious in-depth reader. Not for the faint of heart.

My pal Ruth Malone is quoted: “90 percent of smokers start before they’re of legal age…”

FDA Holds Scientific Workshop on Youth E-Cigarette Cessation Treatment Strategies

I wouldn’t hold my breath, but… all sciencey… I’m… well, there it is, including “Gaps In Information” to include “needs to be better understood “, “the need to track these products”…

…and my favorite, contrary to the brain damage claim: “nicotine and other chemicals have on the neurodevelopmental stage for children are unknown“…
