Scott Gottlieb: JUUL is Now Your Bitch

Well, I’m not against… wait a minute…

Scott Gottlieb: JUUL is Now Your Bitch

Same Author, my favorite subject: FOIA Request for Nicotine Statements…


Are the Kids Alright?

One of the best breakdowns yet.

Are the Kids Alright?

From the same author – on Twitter:


The “Winston Man”: A Transition from Cigarettes’ Model to Vaping Advocate

“The independent vape industry is serving the market on a silver platter to the tobacco companies,” explained Goerlitz.”

The “Winston Man”: A Transition from Cigarettes’ Model to Vaping Advocate


Should flavours be banned in cigarettes and e-cigarettes?

NO. Nicotine strength should not, either. Period.

Should flavours be banned in cigarettes and e-cigarettes?


More than 50 tickets issued for underage vaping

If Gottlieb was intending swift and STRINGENT ENFORCEMENT – and fines to exceed these – and I mean extreme fines – for selling to minors – for ANY counter sales – vape shops or otherwise, including losing their licences – via the Synar Amendment – changing it to 95% to “qualify for funding’ rather than the EXTREMELY lenient and  ‘acceptable’ 80%, I’d almost start respecting efforts similar to these from Dr. Gottlieb.

More than 50 tickets issued for underage vaping in Park Ridge since penalties took effect last year: police

The Last and Only Solace


Things I love to see:


Stossel: Let Them Vape

Of the few reporters I admire, John Stossel is one. In an attempt to get some attention, I’d once tweeted to him about A Billion Lives here and asked him to talk with David Goerlitz here.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this balanced piece, especially with Michelle Minton.

Stossel: Let Them Vape


“National Drug Threat Assessment”

For something compared as “addictive as cocaine or heroin”, I am VERY disappointed not to find evidence of nicotine gangs, cartels, trafficking, abuse or threats and specifically “epidemics” listed on the just-released “National Drug Threat Assessment”.

It was pointed out on Twitter that Kratom was not on the list.

Nicotine is absent as well.

Surprise!

National Drug Threat Assessment


Vaping to smoking initiation among US youth and young adults: a reality check

I can’t tell if this got released “too early”, too quick, or dammit, there just isn’t a gateway despite Gottlieb’s determination of creating, nurturing and finally revealing an “epidemic”.  Certainly, there is no gateway.

Examining the relationship of vaping to smoking initiation among US youth and young adults: a reality check


Rodents!

Call me crazy, I follow a few rodents on Twitter. Outstanding mouseamatician, VladTheVaper,  a VapinSquirrel, a WhiteRabbit and Phil.

Phil linked this from 1998:

Making the world safe for cigarettes


Free Child Labor

With the “Great American Smokeout” behind us, Tobacco Free Indiana took the opportunity to raise hope Indiana legislators will increase the state’s cigarette tax by $2 a pack.

How’d they do it? Well, adults in charge put forty-five children “on their hands and knees” to pick up cigarette butts. That’s 45 hours of free child labor.

“Think of the children™.” Will they also have those children “volunteer” to pick up used condoms and needles to raise awareness of safe sex and drugs?

 

All in the name of funding.

Free child labor.

Isn’t that nice.

Pisses me off.

“… more importantly, the clean-up was a good way to give back”.

If you didn’t know, Lunar Rover also sponsors Phil Busardo’s Taste Your Juice and Phil and Dimitris’s Smokers Show.


VapinGreek

Speaking of Dimitris, I’m proud to have been honored with the first annual VapinGreek Consumer Advocate Award during the Vape Expo in Las Vegas last week – and was taken by complete surprise when it was presented by one of the very people I admire.  (Thank you also to Bill Tarling for telling me to watch it – but not telling me why).

In the vast and varied world of what is the ‘vaping community’, inspiration can come from many. One person I’ve listened to is Dimi on various platforms of advocacy since early 2015. I found a voice within the United States with educated opinions, predictions and warnings of the what was going on in the industry, explaining to consumers (me) what was going ON. I found someone who was “calling out those who attempt to stifle the truth” of something I personally fight for. No holds barred. Affiliations and status don’t matter.

My sincerest thanks to Dimitris for recognizing me in such a way – and creating an award to honor consumers in the future just like me. I’ve met a few of you. There are a lot of us.

Thanks also to Mike Peterson of ‘Vaping and the Mic’ for capturing the video of Dimitris presenting this award here.


Juul – because Juul.

If I were still smoking and it were the first experience to try, it would have worked on throat hit alone. I also understand why Juul attained the lions share of and threaten the “cigalike” market.

Just because ‘you’ don’t like Juul doesn’t mean they don’t work. This is my friends’ son below. I’ve known him his whole life. By his choice, I gave him a Juul a few weeks ago. HIS unsolicited testimony is exactly what shops need to be attentive TO – the smoker trying to make an informed choice.

With Gottlieb’s announcement of “voluntary bans” comes an opportunity.

For brick and mortar shops, by restricting or not carrying consumer choices such as starter kits and only low nicotine strengths with high powered (and complicated to some – think of the help asked for in your groups) mods is restricting an adult consumer choice, pleasure, and possible transition to not smoking…

👉JUST like Gottlieb intends to do.

JUUL


2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey

All the rage, e-cigarette use “among teens” is up. No surprise. In fact, I predicted it last year. I’m not going to link what you probably already know. Instead, I’ll babble a bit. What did they NOT talk about?

E-cigarettes have cut youth smoking by a gazillion percent from 22.7% to 6.3% in 8 years. No one said a word about actual tobacco use… Yet. Still. These are the “things” they’ll need to backpedal on:

  • “E-cigarettes lead to – or are a ‘gateway’ to smoking” – incorrect.
  • “We just don’t know” – incorrect.
  • “They don’t work” – incorrect.
  • “Synar Amendment” – intact.

Of course it’s complicated. Smoking rates at historic lows seize future revenues of funding, grants, state & federal budgets, along with “free” patches, gums, lozenges, prescriptions…and so on. And bullying. Who will take over bullying of smokers? “Think of the children™”.

Remember the “gateway theories” with 3X’s or 5X’s or 7X’s “more likely to smoke” claims innundating your lives. None of these teens have succumbed to smoking? None have gone on crime sprees for patches and gums…

Here’s how I explained it directly to Tobacco-Free Kids.

In a tweet.

I crack me up.

Along with that, I’ll give you the numbers.

Youth "tobacco" rates


Amelia Howard


Nicotine and children

I’ve asked…. “How many children are addicted to patches and/or gums? I’ve asked  the American Academy of Pediatrics and their Presidendt for stats, data case studies (and possible arrest records). They didn’t answer me (!), but Joe Gitchell of Pinny Associates did.

There were “perhaps 2 adolescents may have been never smokers who used NRT”.

Use of nicotine replacement therapy among never smokers in the 1999-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys.

E-cigarette Usage Is Associated With Increased Past-12-Month Quit Attempts

How long have you heard e-cigarettes are a gateway to smoking? You’ll relapse? They don’t work….well…

“These trends are inconsistent with the hypothesis that e-cigarette use is delaying quit attempts and leading to decreased smoking cessation.”

E-cigarette Usage Is Associated With Increased Past-12-Month Quit Attempts


#PWChat

On occasion, “professionals” take it upon themselves to have a chat on Twitter about different subjects. Not with consumers, mind you, with themselves. This week, I learned from Dr. Linda Girgis that “doctors in the US can’t follow UK guidelines.” I don’t even know what that means, but I’ll take a stab at it.

Evidently, science, data and research is “different” in the U.K….. It must be all those extra “u’s” used in words or something… or the dedication to junk science that opposes and contradicts colleagues across the pond.

Doctoring.JPG

Here’s a short list of other guidelines doctors in the US can’t follow… evidently.

  • “Smallpox vaccine”
  • “Aspirin’s active ingredient”
  • “Blood pressure measurement”
  • The first “cardiac catheterisation”
  • “1st successful blood transfusion”

Vaping is Tobacco Control

Tony Ottomanelli II has explained this and you shall understand it.

Vaping is Tobacco Control


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

OUR consumer group, CASAA has released this. Kudos to ALL who do the work behind the scenes.

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


Dear Family, Friends, Parents, Educators and Medical Professionals

This one’s from me. I consider you all intelligent and capable of thinking for yourselves. I’m telling all my friends, now I implore you to tell all your friends, relatives, neighbors, enemies, pets…


Research Looking into Media Coverage of E-Cigarette News

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

“The media still spreading misinformation”


Studying Flavours

After (our) the U.S. Flavor Survey (that ANYONE can USE for legislative and other puposes)…

Paul explains: “Flavours are one of, if not, the key to successfully switching to vaping.”

Even if he does spell flavors wrong, he’s never rude, we’ve made some trouble on Twitter a time or two… and I like him.

I miss 👼#AgentAngel trying to keep us in line.

Agent naughty

Studying Flavours


Speaking of Control

There’s no “first-hand” control over the data/science/research and “they” don’t like it. They have to replicate it rather than fluffing it up to “their” standard. They’ve lost control and narrative of any & all findings for the first time on a very large scale.

In other words, Tobacco Control “Expert” Ruth Malone doesn’t want to be exposed to “second-hand research“. You know you giggled.

FDA launches new, comprehensive campaign to warn kids

  • Kids will listen:

“seeks to snap teens out of their ‘cost-free’ mentality”

  • Believes? Epidemic? Conjecture:

“believes that youth use of e-cigarettes is reaching epidemic proportions.”

  • Yeah, these will be collector items and traded for e-cigarettes:

“Posters also will be placed in at least 10,000 high school bathrooms”

FDA launches new, comprehensive campaign to warn kids


Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb

Gottlieb and Zeller large

He’s talking about this “convincingly”… as if he’s selling something. Cigarettes, maybe?

Proof by assertion:

“We’re in possession of data that shows a disturbingly sharp rise in the number of teens using e-cigarettes”

Conjecture:

“use of e-cigarettes has reached an epidemic level of growth”

Threatening adults:

“we’re going to encumber adult smokers by putting in place restrictions that make these products less attractive, or harder to purchase by adults.”

Are you pissed off yet?

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.

A Billion Lives: Aaron Biebert, Uncut – Two Years Later

thr4life image

The Board of Directors at THR4Life decided to reach out to Aaron Biebert to chat with him about the 2nd anniversary of the North American premiere of his film, “A Billion Lives” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – on what is THR4Life‘s podcast debut.
 
Aaron and I talk about the inception, grass-roots research, and his perceptions while preparing for the film. He allows us an intimate perspective of both the challenges he faced while making the film, where the inspiration came from, and what it took to put this award-winning documentary together.
 
Will there be a sequel to A Billion Lives?
Aaron also gives us a look at other projects he and the crew of Attention Era Media have been working on since 2016. Always on the go, he talks about projects with Derek Yach of The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World and the Film Festival during the most recent Global Forum on Nicotine and more.

Vaping In The News – July 21st, 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.”




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.

Can e-Cigarettes and Pharmaceutical Aids Increase Smoking Cessation and Reduce Cigarette Consumption?

Not if anyone in power and control has anything to say about it.

Can e-Cigarettes and Pharmaceutical Aids Increase Smoking Cessation and Reduce Cigarette Consumption?


Update on Deeming Rule Appeal

1. The MRTP provision violates the First Amendment
2. Notably, they are not cigarettes, as they do not contain tobacco and there is no combustion or smoke.

I’ve heard that before and before and before and…  well… I repeat myself… a lot.

Update on Deeming Rule Appeal


Vaping And Harm Reduction: Don’t Let the Perfect Be the Enemy of the Good

Because it is there.

Vaping And Harm Reduction: Don’t Let the Perfect Be the Enemy of the Good


‘Real‐world’ compensatory behaviour

You can add this to your “we don’t know enough” files…

Alan Beard wrote about this  – mentioning yours truly, and the brilliance of Norbert Zillitron, Bernd Mayer, Paul Barnes…

Before you read the titled section of ‘Real-world’, please see Alan’s blog first where VAPERS knew about it, and explained it. It took them a while to catch up… but they don’t or won’t listen to US.

From Alan Beard in 2015:

Evolving Nicotine Usage and Consequences

Now you can read their “catch-up”.

‘Real‐world’ compensatory behaviour


We are not idiots.

Erica is right.

How Vaping could disrupt Big Tobacco’s plans in Africa

Bloomberg predicts “by 2047 there will be more sales within vaping than the traditional tobacco.

MY opinion: Worldwide tobacco use would drop to -10% in less than 10 years without doing a thing if there were NO interference, regulation, restriction, tax and ban & they left consumers alone. Not just with e-cigarettes, but snus as well.

The Grey Miserable World of ‘Public Health’

Dick has a way with words… and I adore that.

“The hold that ‘public health’ has over politicians is astonishing, but then it’s because politicians are weak, cowardly, and ultimately incredibly stupid”

The Grey Miserable World of ‘Public Health’


Plain Packaging & the TPD

Speaking of adoration, Paul: Facts. Do. Matter.

Plain Packaging & the TPD


Montana Proposal Punishes Lower Income Smokers

EACH time professional organizations (Yep, I’m talking to you) decide to *allow & *negotiate taxes/legislation instead of fighting them and without being clear on public record = #nicotine is not tobacco…

…without clear and extreme public objection, it (industry) is settling for years of the *definition of nicotine as tobacco being *taxed & *acceptable, and the shop owner and consumer will pay the price.

Here’s an excellent example of that from Lindsey Stroud of Heartland.org.

Montana Proposal Punishes Lower Income Smokers, Is A Disservice to Tobacco Harm Reduction


CASAA Tobacco 21 policy statement:

“Including low-risk alternatives in T21 laws is unwise, misleading”

Louder.

Outstanding.

CASAA Tobacco 21 policy statement: “Including low-risk alternatives in T21 laws is unwise, misleading”


Manipulation

On June 19th, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb stated adult smoking rates is 13.9% nationally.

On July 3rd, “Truth” Initiative put out a tweet claiming adult smoking is 17.1% nationally. I’m not sure how smoking rates went up 3.2% nationally in just two weeks but I asked my question anyway  – which will certainly be ignored.

Selective sampling…
Business plan is:

Show lowering rates to increase “we’re doing our job” and winning. Give us more money.
Show – oops – an uptick in rates – “we need to do more”. Give us more money.

Think of the children™ is required for every press release.

Deny anything. Coordinate, manipulate – and fabricate…. everything.

Tax increases at any cost…..

Covered here: Truth Initiative manipulates tobacco numbers


Are Vapes Tobacco Products?

It’s still a thing.

Are Vapes Tobacco Products? The Confused Conversation About Categorization


How to Lie, Cheat, Manipulate and Mislead

Remember Stanton Glantz‘s famous words from 1992:

“and that’s the question that I have applied to my research relating to tobacco. If this comes out the way I think, will it make a difference? And if the answer is yes, then we do it, and if the answer is I don’t know then we don’t bother. Okay? And that’s the criteria.”

This link is – more for humor and posterity on my part, and may be self-explanatory on yours… or not… because they (surely there’s manipulation with any subject matter) get the numbers, data…they get the results, and outcomes they want. Then, they give it to the public just how they would like it to be interpreted.

That, my dear readers, is why they’re so angry about Foundation for a Smoke-Free World.

How to Lie, Cheat, Manipulate and Mislead using Statistics and Graphical Displays


Five years.

This could be any vape shop. I’ve had the privelege of meeting James Jarvis here in Ohio a couple times. James and his family are celebrating their monumental 5th year anniversary in a business in which government, pharma and political front groups are trying to destroy.

Employing – from my perspective – stellar people who are instrumental in the success and are recognized for their role as a team.

James, as I hope most shop owners are, is continuing with the necessity of taking on local, state and national issues with the consumer in each thought, step, testimony, letter, phone call, rally, billboard, political meeting, education, e-mail, podcast, and all the crazy “behind the scenes” things – – – no one ever really could imagine outside the mind of a shop owner (including me) is being done…to make the world a better place.

Truth Initiative manipulates tobacco numbers

TRUTH lies

Stunning claims of a rise in tobacco use among adults for 2017 as they are now alleged to have hit 17.1% nationally just two weeks after the Food and Drug Administration’s head clearly stated it was down to 13.9%.

On June 19th, 2018, Food and Drug Administration’s Commissioner Dr. Gottlieb decided to tweet the latest statistics about the national smoking rates among adults had dropped to 13.9% for 2017.


Lies

Truth Initiative, established and relying on tobacco sales to stay in business, as part of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement, decided to put out this tweet on July 3rd, 2018 claiming the “national adult smoking rate is 17.1%.”

The smoking rates went up 3.2% nationally in just two weeks? Huh.

I cannot stress this enough.

Truth Initiative claims the adult smoking rates ROSE 3.2 percent in just two weeks.


Math

Now, I’m no good in math so I recruited a mouse to do it for me… to no avail. He’s still a good rodent. Toss him some cheese for his effort!


I ask silly questions

When will they be made accountable for their accounting and other errors?

I asked Dr. Gottlieb about rectifying the issue. I predict government in action will be government inaction.

The truth is, Truth Initiative is lying.


Motivation

When a political front group disguised as an anti-tobacco group classified as a non-profit organization manipulates smoking rates because their very existence relies upon the sale of tobacco, why are they still in business…what else are they lying about?

This group, with other groups, are directly influencing and shaping laws and regulations. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is no different.

Corruption and manipulation of public opinion is their business.

Classifying “nicotine” as tobacco is just one example.

You may think wrongly that organizations such as “Truth Initiative” and “Tobacco-Free Kids” is such a worthy and monumental cause to stand behind.

You could never be further from the “Truth”.

Money, by way of funding, is their ONLY motivation. They have no initiative to tell the truth.


I can let Paul explain it better here about the “Truth”:

The Truth Shall Set Ye Fret

Smoking hits new low

Shhhh… Imagine that… I’ve seen little hype about this.

Smoking hits new low; about 14 percent of US adults light up


Sufficient evidence

Ever wondered where bias comes from? Me too. Of course, there is sufficient evidence, but if your website only link two items to the question, how can Nurses (busy as they are) be “informed”?

Are there sufficient evidence-based findings for the RN to have an informed conversation…


Sex, cars and e-cigarettes

Speaking of less harm:

Sex, cars and e-cigarettes


Battery Safety

NO laughing matter – James Jarvis has been working with Battery Solutions to properly care and dispose of batteries in his shop. Here, their site explains safety, storage and shipping of lithium-ion batteries.

This program (or one of your choosing) is an EXCELLENT way to strike up a meaningful and educational conversation with your customer(s) about battery safety and recycling.

Why wouldn’t you?

Why do lithium-ion batteries explode?


FDA: Full of intent, no purpose

Here’s where Dr. Gottlieb continues “redoubling” efforts while he tries to explain explanations on Twitter. Double-speak, if you will… and a few counters from those you probably already know….

FDA: Full of intent, no purpose for smokers.


Gottlieb’s Grotty Games

American Cancer Society Falsehood:
