Pressing questions first:

Are you listening? Are you paying attention?


Do YOU vape and vote?

In less than a minute: Tell President Trump. Azar said on Fox that he & the President are removing flavors from the market! Make your voice heard now. Answer that question – quickly, and share it in your spaces:

I VAPE, I VOTE


Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

Another quick and easy question – if you’re coming or not!

Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

(I covered the rally here: We, The People.)


Vape Rally At The White House! You Don’t Want To Miss This

Matt speaks briefly about the rally in Washington November 9th.


Congress Believes Social Media Bots Enticed Minors To Vape

VITN rules, I see Mike, you see Mike.

Vaping Twitter Bot Study is Dehumanizing Propaganda

Editor note: I was one of five accused (“Account 3”) of being a bot. Now, that may sound trivial – but I (yeah, me) am described as “creating and releasing false information”, I am “particularly malicious”, and, according to @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ @EnergyCommerce, I am “actively involved in misinformation campaigns“.

Think of the underLYING motive for tax dollars wasted while Congress investigates whether I, and four others, of millions of accounts, are “bots” – accused of targeting underage kids. Breaking the law. Really? All this – to manipulate public opinion. What ELSE are they doing this with?

Yes, I’m angry. I’m very angry. But, it is much bigger than myself, or the others above. This IS defamation of character to ALL of us and describes this blog, your tweets, thoughts, any research you and I see performed, explained, and then shared – and very existence of US is described – minimized at best, and meaningless – not worth the attention of anyone’s time.

The original report is linked within by Vaping 360 and guest writer, Amelia Howard did a wonderful job explaining this.

The Science of Nicotine and Weight Loss

I was referred to this by the #CrankyOldBroad. Not only does it discuss the possibility nicotine and weight loss, it clearly states:

It’s interesting to note that while tobacco is addictive, pure nicotine actually is not. It is the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) in tobacco that leads to addiction, so people taking nicotine who are not exposed to monoamine oxidase inhibitors do not necessarily suffer addiction and withdrawal from the substance

That is interesting to note

Tobacco Harm Reduction: Evidence Update

Speaking of evidence, with this link, it isn’t the link. It’s the PDF within.

Things like this catch my eye:

“The same review suggested that if the rate of successfully quitting in a population without any assistance is 2-3 percent, the rate would only increase by 3-5 percent even if everyone used NRT. In fact, in order to produce only one additional successful cessation from tobacco, 56 people would need to be treated with NRT.

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.
