Is It Safe for Non-Smokers to Chew Nicotine Gum?
Seems nicotine is controversial – to those who pay attention. Maybe I should babble on about it…
You know its the strangest thing … I have seen countless articles about nicotine's dependency potential – but not once have I seen any evidence that being dependent upon a substance is innately harmful.

The Vaping Boom
Dr. Tevi Troy, vice president of public policy at JUUL Labs, sheds light on the threats to the electronic cigarette industry with Lindsey Stroud of the Heartland Institute in this podcast:
Social Media Reach
Certainly, it isn’t the first ” list ” I’ve been on… L.O.L.

They seem overly desperate and very concerned about their propaganda being undermined… to have to do a study like this…If they would just focus on… oh never mind.
We, as individuals – at least on Twitter – are, without concerted effort, interrupting professional algorithms, advertising – propaganda & manipulative “campaigns” like
We’re pissing them off, and I’m very proud, and humbled, to be in such great company. Keep doing that, ya bunch of impugning ne’er-do-welling sheep… #LOUDER.
Unfortunately, “they’ll” keep wasting our money and valueable time.
Related from Mawsley over at Planet Of The Vapes:
Hold it…. keep your knickers on…. they are like trained monkeys…
After all that hard work to impugn… now we’re bots!
That’s right… bots:
Comparison of Dependence across Different Types of Nicotine
Advancing Tobacco Regulations
—> To protect children and familes
Laws allegedly “protect” children.
Pay attention: After celebrating an anniversary, the first bullet point in this blog from Mitch Zeller and Scott Gottlieb is “lower nicotine” and more cigarettes… THAT’s how you manipulate the public into believing… you’re advancing tobacco…and revenue… for years…
Below Dr. Gottlieb – along with Zeller, continue their incompetence by celebrating the 9th anniversary of the “Tobacco Protection Act” written by Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids & other political front groups – while killing off innovation & collectively ignoring science & consumers.
Advancing Tobacco Regulation to Protect Children and Families
But wait… with the “smartest” and brightest in the country assigned to figure this out…. They’re tobacco products…and with the precision of a 9 year old… within a day.. they want e-cigarettes to be drugs. Well, that’s not true. They can’t prove nicotine is tobacco, so now they’re going back to the drug route.
“To be a medical product, it must have the ability to prevent or treat a disease and, therefore, provide a beneficial effect on human health,” the court’s ruling read.
do the drug route either… any attorney worth their weight…
Now within 24 hours:
Gottlieb has gone from a “comprehensive plan for nicotine” (above) to “development of novel nicotine replacement drug… therapies…”
Big Scary Headline
A big scary headline “U of M researchers identify link between e-cigarettes and cancer” was noticed by a source today… The truth? “the overall exposure to NNN in e-cigarette users is dramatically lower than in smokers”.
While many of us are (or should be) always watching for anything detrimental and damn sure want to know it, this shows another way to use a headline to place fear into the heads and manipulate the public. This is where they got the scary headline:
This has a “do not link to the original “story” if you’d like to see it without giving them traffic: DO not LINK.
Tobacco control policies.
Kidnapping babies of asylum-seekers.
Among the things these have in common is that people do studies that show they do not further the ostensible goals, and THAT is the only problem with them.https://t.co/WW9NRI7Z3n
