Marylin

Something like this always brings me back to where I need to be, fighting for the choice of consumers. It reminds me of Fiamma Palermo (Karen Lee) a few years ago, who used the #ImProof hashtag.

This young lady declares her right is her right to choose, and questions accountability. More of this please. I must admit, I’ve got a crush on Marylin. I’m smitten. Not sure if my wife will voluntarily move out, though.



Mark Slis (Scientist & Vape Shop Owner)

Another consumer, and more. I’ll let him explain it during his testimony after driving over 500 miles to do it.


Compliance Checks

Meanwhile, as Marilyn eloquently stated above, underage children are still breaking the law. Meanwhile, retail stores are still breaking the law.

James Jarvis shared a post on his Facebook page showing the latest current numbers of “compliance checks”. Then, he asks a question.

He did my homework for us, so I stole his post. (Thanks James!)

Year to date FDA Inspection data total US…


Total Inspections: 102,032
Total fails for Ends: 4,212
10 fails were for selling Logic to minors
22 fails were for selling Njoy to minors
84 fails were for selling Mark 10 to minors
499 fails were for selling “other” to minors
748 fails were for selling Blu to minors
1407 fails were for selling Vuse to minors
1442 fails were for Juul to minors
Total fails for vape shops: 212
Total fails for smoke and vape shops: 82
*619 of the fails had civil money penalties (so multiple offenses)

Breaking down Ohio: Total Fails for Ends: 177
Ohio Vape Shop fails: 3 ( same store failed 2 times)

Then he asked: “Tell me again where the youth are getting their vape products?”

Compliance Check Inspections of Tobacco Product Retailers (through 08/31/2019)


Speaking of Michigan

It is not all roses and candy in Michigan… Rep. Johnson got on “Mr. Eliquid’s” website… and made a determination.

More of that responsibility, lawmakers!!!

Flavored E-Cigarette Bans Propagate America’s War On Drugs

VITN Rules…. with Michael McGrady:

“Moral panics, in turn, pave the way for “endgame” drug control policies. The war on drugs also has a history of pushing ultimatums to achieve policy goals.”

Uncool Mint Research

Another scare story tried to rear its ugly head this past week. While illegal THC products are giving the “anti’s” fictitious and strong momentum, they’re looking at ALL angles of decimation of a less harmful product.

We’re already looking for all we can know about e-cigarettes. Do you know why? We’re tired of everyone being lied to. Because we’re the stakeholder in the equation. You’re not.”

Governors Cuomo & Whitmer

May as well put criminals in one place.

Both Whitmer & Cuomo wants flavors banned. I’ve heard it may be because adults don’t like flavors! Neither do Senators.

“They want to regulate, restrict, tax and ban less smoking.” Think about it.

Governors, like Cuomo, seem to like tobacco-flavored non-governmental organizational front group flavored lollipops.

Image

Governor Whitmer, seen here enjoying a house full of flavored ice cream, beer, pastries, cookies, donuts, coffee and gasp, flavored cheese, does not like flavors either.

In fact, I’m under the impression she really likes flavors, including cherry, blueberry, and raspberry pie, but doesn’t want Michigan folks to have those same freedoms.

Vaping and the MIC with Kim Shilling.

This is well worth listening to Kim Shilling as she discusses the Michigan fiasco.


E-cigarettes: Smoke & Mirrors

This video gives me hope that critical thinking may still be lurking in the United States.

With Dr. Sally Satel, Dr. Roger Klein, and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller.


Speaking of needing “treatment”.

Surprise! Pfizer sponsored research has found they need to fill a need because you need their product as “treatment” to cease vaping product use.

This gem is in the text. Bold and italics are my emphasis.

There aren’t antismoking treatments for people who smoke only electronic cigarette (single users) or electronic cigarette and classic cigarette (dual users). Surprisingly, there aren’t data available in the literature on smoking cessation intervention for this specific disease group …

I’ll allow you to proceed:

For posterity

In the spirit of having a record of informing readers now, and years to come, I will point out the wording is impeccable for propaganda, and the press was asking great questions. However, I will link the CDC transcript, and their inability to have any tangible findings, here

Michigan Governor Declares Cigarettes Safe

I understand the cringing. There were a few uneasy about this (my) blog because the Governor of Michigan didn’t actually say or “declare” cigarettes are safe.

Now, think of the never-ending, non-stop, click-bait (three hyphenated words in a row is a record for me) articles you see, read, get tagged by your friends, and millions share daily. That are not true.

Nope, she didn’t ‘say’ or ‘declare’ cigarettes are safe, but it was implied. Call it tongue-in-cheek, call it satire.

She isn’t banning cigarettes, therefore, cigarettes are safe.

Michigan Governor Declares Cigarettes Safe

Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan has arrogantly declared cigarettes are safe and will remain available for consumers of all ages in her state. “Alternative nicotine products” will be banned to protect the children ™.

It seems the words “regulate, restrict, tax and ban” will not catch on (in that order) as I had envisioned. Michigan, like San Francisco, has chosen the word “ban” for less harmful products to protect the children™ … I’m happy to report however, cigarettes are safe.


They aren’t banning all vaping products in Michigan, only “alternative nicotine products”. At last check (pretend I made a phone call here), cigarettes are safe from being banned in the state. To protect the children ™ .

Any normal human being would think laws are in place to protect the children ™ restrict underage purchase of booze, cigarettes, and other adult products. Don’t all laugh in unison.

Dr. Brad Rodu already explained underage sales of tobacco is poorly enforced and violation rates are “extremely high” in states like Michigan earlier this year.

(For reference on federal/state enforcement of underage sales, see what no one likes to talk about: Synar Amendment).


The Governor posted this… To protect the children ™.


Takeaways:

A less harmful CONSUMER choice is being eliminated. Without experience, consumers (of any age) may try to mix e-liquid themselves – and it will create a black market.

To protect the children ™ .


ELIMINATION of vape shops, restraint of trade – creating a monopoly for, or eliminating competition for cigarettes and smoking cessation drugs. To protect the children ™ .

Civil disobedience is already here:

There are other implications to protect the children ™ :

This arbitrary decision by Governor Whitmer, challenged or not, has created an unscientific template for the other 49 states to admire, assess, modify and then implement implement to their own needs to protect the children ™.

The American Vaping Association had a press release here.

Mutual Admiration Society member Frank Pallone was quick to show support to Whitmer. I was compelled to ask a silly question:


I can’t take – as a consumer – any threat as an idle threat. If just ONE of these threats, taxes, band, etc. takes hold… it’s a snowball to hell for everyone. I don’t really believe for one second most understand how swift that hill will accelerate the process.


I’ll readily admit I may not explain things ‘just right’ all the time, so (in the spirit of the name of my blog) I’ll point you in the directions of the links you need to see to better understand why cigarettes are safe in Michigan:

If you are in MICHIGAN, you should already have gone to CASAA here:

Action Center

You should visit Jim McDonald here:

Michigan Governor Bans Flavors by Executive Order

You should see Dr. Siegel here:

Michigan Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes is a Terrible Policy with Devastating Public Health Consequences

And in accordance with VITN rules, you should go here:

Juul Labs Announces Support For Michigan Flavor Ban


Footnotes:

I found (then Senator) Whitmer announcing legislation (in 2008) to ban “toy” lighters years ago here.

Interestingly, I couldn’t find Whitmer trying to ban cigarettes anywhere (to protect the children ™).


Finally, in my best Morgan Freeman voice:

Cigarettes cannot and shall not be banned and are protected by law, in accordance with the Master Settlement Agreement.

I found myself viewing this last night – with Paul himself. Paul and I have had a chat or 5. Extreme intelligence.

If misinterpreted, you’d think this was just the beginning of Paul’s journey in Australia. Not so. He’s been doing this a long time. Now, major press is giving the well deserved and upcoming spotlight. Not to him, to the cause.

Lower Nicotine Cigarettes

It is official, the FDA has invested over 100 MILLION dollars in, and now received, a “pre-market tobacco application” (PMTA) from 22nd Century.

“The Company’s primary mission in tobacco is to reduce the harm caused by smoking.”

These cigarettes are identical to conventional cigarettes except for reduced exposure to nicotine.

Let me repeat that: The FDA wants cigarettes intended to reduce exposure to nicotine. Nothing else.

Public “health” is very excited to help people quit smoking. With more cigarettes. I’ll expect this to be approved quickly – as it is in accordance with the revenue producing Ponzi scheme Master Settlement Agreement.

Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids? ~ Busting myths about smoking ~ E-cigarette minimum legal sale age laws and traditional cigarette use among rural pregnant teenagers ~ Great news for tobacco farmers! ~ FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures ~ Tobacco stocks tumble as cigarette sales decline ~ While The World Vapes Our Government Chokes ~ Educating OUR Children ~ Vaping products and gang activity ~ Rats, low voltage and their testicles ~ Truth Manipulative


Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids?

Dr Farsalinos explained in 2015 – it’s important as a reminder of “cell studies” and what they’re worth: “Don’t waste your time reading (at least most of) them” here.

Now, again… someone’s got some ‘splaining to do.

“Thus, cinnamaldehyde in the cinnamon-flavored liquids was not different from cinnamaldehyde present in food. In fact, if the observed effects are attributed to cinnamaldehyde, then cinnamaldehyde in food products must be equally toxic to endothelial cells.”

“which were not vaped, they were used in liquid form”

Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids?


Busting myths about smoking

Again, Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos explains.

Busting myths about smoking


E-cigarette minimum legal sale age laws and traditional cigarette use among rural pregnant teenagers

A pre-release sneak peek at a slight increase in smoking among pregnant teens. At what age are pregnant teens considered adults?

At what AGE is a smoker considered a smoker?

Great news for tobacco farmers!

“Think of the children™.”

Will jet fumes be considered smoke?

Will planes be deemed tobacco products by the FDA?

I can think of about a few one liners / possible memes for this one…

Think about the tobacco farmers, the economy…


FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures

Huh.

FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures


We now have results for key laws advocates promised would ‘protect’ teenagers. They don’t.

The authors of #T21 #Tobacco21 laws & legislation already KNOW THIS.

“2017, the first full year the 21 smoking age was in effect, was the first since the survey began 15 years ago that teenagers’ cigarette use failed to decline.”

Think of the children™.

“The doctor had the results but was perplexed. I can understand why. My lung capacity should have been a lot less than 41% in fact, it had increased dramatically to an amazing 82%.”

WHILE THE WORLD VAPES OUR GOVERNMENT CHOKES



Educating OUR Children

This is Logan. Be like Logan.

Vaping products and gang activity

NOW vaping products are linked to gang activity. Yep, I’ve found many non-profits linked to that. Lock your doors!!!

Fine, that isn’t what the “study” title is.

UTSA study shows vaping is linked to adolescents’ propensity for crime

For reference I covered nicotine busts here.


Rats, low voltage, and…

So, when you’re choosing funding to make life better…

Well, fine, you caught me not telling you what the study is, but, either way, my poor little pal, Vlad.

Impairment of testicular function in electronic cigarette (e-cig, e-cigs) exposed rats under low-voltage and nicotine-free conditions.


Truth Manipulative

I have a question for all of you. Would you like your truth filtered, or nonfiltered? Soft pack or box?

I took the “Truth” to task after seeing one thing, and then the other.

It must’ve sounded so good on paper, they changed their minds.

The potential frivolity of the Juul class actions is alarming

I’ve said it before, if I see Michael McGrady, so shall you.

The potential frivolity of the Juul class actions is alarming


FDA Performance Measures

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

Click to enlarge

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.

While I don’t normally tweet or blog about pot – (nothing against it, I’m an old former stoner from the 80’s) – this one – liner gem was hidden in this 2014 article.

Our friend, Dr, Gardner

With all the rhetoric since DECEMBER, In the “youth use” arena, this chart came up… with “never smoking” adolescents in the U.S.A..

They asked and separated daily use. Why are they still withholding pertinent information while basing an “epidemic” on incomplete and unreleased information?

Altria’s stock drops after earnings, revenue fall more than expected

“Public Health” “experts”: “Ecigs don’t work.”

MAKING AN EPIDEMIC (PART 1).

I covered, among other things, “snippets and narratives” before. Fellow Ohioan Bo McCoy, MBA – does the same.

  • Without publication the study could be used and interpreted in any way the reader sees fit. It has been said, numbers don’t lie; but sometimes numbers don’t tell you the whole truth either.
  • Getting advance copies of a study gives agencies a clear advantage in preparing the use of the information against or sway legislation in favor or a prejudicial interpretation. 
  • Finally, keeping the study in close-knit circles precludes any opposition from using the study.

MAKING AN EPIDEMIC (PART 1).

Vape Laws Cause Teen Smoking

Because there are rules.

Rack·et·eer·ing

[ˌrakəˈtiriNG] NOUN. Dishonest and fraudulent business dealings.

From candy flavored amphetamines for children – to – yes – OxyContin for children as young as 11 – to CVS filling fraudulent prescriptions – and of COURSE a $930 million funding opportunity to combat the opioid crisis

JUST like tobacco “control“, “public health“, “nicotine replacement therapy” and government deliberately keeping people smoking for profit.
