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..


When and where

WASHINGTON, D.C.

When: November 9, 2019: 12p-4pm
Where: The Ellipse @ 1450 Pennsylvania Ave NW

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.

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.

Flavor Bans Are Good for Smoking

Those in control are power tripping all over themselves trying to ban flavors in vaping products. Once a smoker, you shall never deserve pleasure derived from a less harmful alternative while you’re bullied to quit smoking their way by the same people having you by your short-hairs. Flavor bans are good for smoking.

Do they want less smoking?

Do “they” truly want less smoking, or control? The choice to impose any flavor ban is a choice to protect income derived from smokers (NOT tobacco companies as public health likes to imply) in the form of predicted and lucrative revenue in accordance with the Master Settlement Agreement.

Because officials are not in control, they are desperate to regain control of public opinion – and doing so fraudulently. Obviously vaping products work.

Why would anyone want to ban or tax a less harmful alternative to smoking? Why would you ban adult choice?


What do they know?

When someone stops smoking, food not only tastes better, sense of smell improves. The olfactory nerves from taste to smell are in overdrive within a few days. Senators, for example, are trying to ban flavors, but have enjoyed a “candy desk” since 1965. Really. In fact, surprise, now there are TWO.

With most, if not all examples of “stop smoking” programs comes the fact that taste buds return and will enhance the perception of flavors. That means flavors are pleasurable in the journey of a smoker choosing not to smoke. That means flavor bans are good for smoking.

You could take my word for it, or find examples of

  • “suggesting that the effects of smoking on olfaction may be reversible” here.
  • “The ability of olfactory stimuli to uniquely alter craving states and cognitive processes associated with smoking, and disrupt well-learned smoking routines, would offer a distinct and novel method for reducing cravings” here.
  • “Your damaged taste buds will recover relatively quickly and your ability to relish delicious food will be among the greatest rewards you will get for your efforts in quitting smoking.” here
  • “In two days, the blunted senses of smell and taste begin to sharpen again” here.
  • “Did u know quitting smoking can make food taste & smell better? Yum!” from National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) “SmokeFreeUS” here.
  • “A few days after someone quits smoking, their taste buds kick back in. Celebrate those strong taste buds with some delicious healthy treats!” (Another) found from NCI here.
  • ” Quitting smoking can help improve your sense of taste! Celebrate #NationalWatermelonDay by enjoying a smokefree afternoon & the delicious taste of watermelon.” from the Centers for Disease Control here.

69,233 Former Smokers Show:

Fruit and dessert/pastry/bakery flavors were the most prevalent choices of the adult established, dedicated US e-cigarette users who participated to this study. The same flavors were also considered particularly important in their effort to quit smoking and to prevent relapse to smoking.

That is here, from Dr Farsalinos :

Patterns of flavored e-cigarette use among adults vapers in the United States


Also explained here:

Restricting Access To Flavored E-Cigarettes Should Be The Last Resort


Now comes another document from California:

“However, this doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of peer-reviewed evidence that they’re invaluable tools. In fact, a new report concluded e-liquid flavors help adult smokers fight the urge to start smoking again far better than tobacco flavored e-liquids do.”

New Research Supports Something We’ve Said About Vaping For Years


Flavor bans are good for smoking.


Irony In Control

Is the number one priority actually reducing smoking rates? Either they want less harm, or they don’t. Either they want less smoking, or they don’t. Smoking rates for teens and adults are the lowest in history. Is that bothering them?

It’s clear “public health” has made their decision. They want to have fewer flavors – but keep “tobacco” flavor. Think about that. That means flavor bans are good for smoking. They want to ban choices that work at any cost.

To pretend banning flavors will not protect cigarette revenues means you live in a fantasy world. You can ponder that statement at one of over 30,000 Starbucks – while enjoying one or more of your 80,000 available flavors.

“Morals are standards set by those who want their standards met by others.”

After all, smokers, and former smokers do not deserve motivation or pleasure – only defeat, disapproval, and shame. How’s that feel?

The public officials (all) bleating they want less smoking is irony in control. They are still asserting their “authority” while trying to hold what little control they have left.

Less smoking, after all, really isn’t their goal. Quietly mentioning lowering nicotine on occasion, burying within press releases, without much fanfare, they are INVESTING over 100 Million Dollars for more cigarettes….. Flavor bans are good for smoking.

At the risk of sounding sound redundant, repetitive and repeating myself: Do they want less smoking? Those in control are power tripping all over themselves trying to ban flavors.

ASK THEM WHY they want to ban less smoking.



They are desperate.

Even Truth Initiative admits:

“Good public health policy must recognize this continuum and leverage this knowledge to move continuing smokers, as rapidly as possible, toward less harmful nicotine delivery products while simultaneously preventing the adoption of all nicotine containing or tobacco products among youth.“

Manipulation of the Truth

Last evening I recognized Manipulation of the Truth. While all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong. Everything is not as truthful as it appears, and should make you skeptical at best to the information allowed to be filtered to the public by the end of this blog.

It may surprise you, this isn’t just about vaping products. It’s about choice, and population level harm reduction. It’s as if they’ve taken everything (we’ve) known and packaged it into one PDF. Then, they deleted it, repackaged it and manipulated the truth.

Among other things quoted below, the organization and original PDF recognizes and mentions Nicotine Without Smoke from “Royal College of Physicians (RCP) (Royal College of Physicians, 2016).


This report recognizes and mentions smokeless tobacco and snus..

“The best evidence comes from cohort studies in Sweden, where a low-nitrosamine snus product has been heavily used for more than 50 years.”

It goes further:

This is particularly reassuring because if nicotine promoted cancer generally, these studies would have identified oral cavity cancer risk“.

I’ll call this the unfiltered version. Final draft, if you will. While I wouldn’t call it ‘perfect’, (there are general statements I disagree with), it highlights the importance of reducing harm from combustible tobacco. Imagine if they took that path.


Why would Truth Initiative remove an original PDF from consumer view?


This PDF asks:

“What policies and regulations can ensure that harm from nicotine use are minimized while simultaneously moving the entire population away from deadly combustible tobacco products?

This PDF admits:

While animal models suggest possible concerns for humans, more research is required to demonstrate if, and at what dosage and duration of exposure, nicotine might have possible adverse effects during adolescent and young adult brain development.”

This PDF explains:

There are large differences in the response and degree of dependence to nicotine within a population. At the two extremes, some may find nicotine has little effect or may even be aversive, while others find it very appealing and become heavily dependent


What are they trying to hide?


It also recognizes:

“…options to improve consumer-informed decision making by ensuring that accurate information is available …

It states:

The evidence available so far suggests that levels of biomarkers of exposure to toxicants related to use of these devices is significantly lower than for smoked cigarettes.

It KNOWS:

“Good public health policy must recognize this continuum and leverage this knowledge to move continuing smokers, as rapidly as possible, toward less harmful nicotine delivery products while simultaneously preventing the adoption of all nicotine containing or tobacco products among youth.


Amazingly, the title of this PDF is “Re-thinking nicotine and its effects“. It is authored by Raymond Niaura, PhD, Director of Science and Training, The Steven A. Schroeder National Institute for Tobacco Research and Policy Studies at Truth Initiative.

I hope you ponder why they took the time and initiative to put this all together, and why they chose to delete it. Imagine if this organization just stuck to the “truth”. Imagine the impact it could have.

Here is that version.

One of the usual suspects mentioned the original PDF was from a couple years ago, which led me to the December 5th, 2016 edition of the news and a link – from vapers.org.uk.

It was there I found the final edited version of their Truth Manipulative ® . A stark, filtered version (I crack me up) with large and very distracting graphics. Oh, there’s speckled, peppered, tucked and reworded truth within.


What are they trying to hide?


While all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong and sprinkled between facts and distracting graphics…and I realized I’d been on this page before. In fact, I’ve quoted some of it!

I can only come to the conclusion those who read the original wanted it filtered to their narrative. To coincide with a manipulation of the Truth.

Their narrative. Their snippets.

With a “download report” button at the top, here is their filtered version.

Their final released statement shows:

More research is needed to understand how e-cigarettes might help smokers completely switch from combustible tobacco products.

It claims:

Currently, most adults who use e-cigarettes continue to smoke combustible cigarettes. If this pattern holds, it will substantially limit potential positive health impacts from e-cigarettes.


Why are they manipulating the truth?


Shockingly – in part – it states:

Furthermore, any public health benefit from e-cigarettes will not be fully realized in an unregulated environment. The FDA must regulate and carefully review these products to ensure that they meet the public health standard established by the Tobacco Control Act. Only then will consumers, health care providers and public health officials be able to reliably evaluate and identify products that are of the highest quality and are most likely to help smokers completely switch from cigarettes.

Truth Manipulation:

“…adding e-cigarettes to the market may yield some benefit, but will likely save fewer than 2 percent of lives that otherwise would have been lost to smoking…”

WHY would they remove the original PDF? Seemed – even by my standards, – not perfect, but reasonable and truthful.

It reminds me that they’ve done some cherry-picking before.

It’s at this point I normally would go into a fevered babbling tirade, but choose not to do so for this blog.

I’ll let you compare the two and find the differences from the PDF above – in contrast to the public link below.

Besides, “fewer than 2 percent” really isn’t important, and while all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong.

Action needed on e-cigarettes


I’d like to thank A.J. Moll for resurfacing this subject in a tweet for me to find, along with this tweet from Edward Hubert linking to the (unfamiliar to me) PDF from Truth Manipulative ®, and Jukka for being on the ball as well.


You should see this.

You really should. Or shall. Could? You know you want to.

Oh, go on – make a decision!

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.

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

“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.

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“…

Vaping less harmful to lung fluids than smoking, study shows

I consider it my job to find things, good and bad, to keep readers who’ve been with me all this time (thank you) and to new readers consumers stumbling across my blog… informed.

I tell you about my findings – sometimes with arrogant commentary before-hand – and sometimes not. You’re welcome!

Note the date of the tweet below – by “The James”  – is from 2016. They had a tweet where there were “two” studies. Didn’t find that right away…

I sent multiple tweets about this “study” (if I remember correctly, there were two) and still haven’t recieved a response to date. Must not be important.

However, I FOUND ran across something Ohio University did…. about “vape fluids”. Not that I’m finding it on an official release by the government or any “health” groups…

“particles in e-cigarette vapor do not affect the normal functioning”

FDA wants comments

Comments are being accepted on the regulation of flavors….on their (in my opinion) already decided rules.

Submit yours, then have everyone in your email list do it as well. Then, have them have everyone on their email list do that as well…

E-cigarettes and the obsolescence of combustion

“…substantial proportions of the population wrongly believe that e-cigarettes are as dangerous as combustible cigarettes…. Unfavorable press coverage, negative campaigns by e-cigarette opponents, and lack of training of health professionals may explain this situation.”

E-cigarettes and the obsolescence of combustion


Topeka “Tobacco 21” Ordinance Turned Down by Judge

Adult choices are adult choices. I wonder why the “Tobacco 21” movement isn’t going state by state rather than each individual local city/town… 50 times rather than hundreds of times… publicity – public opinion – wasting valuable time for those opposed?

A #CrankyOldBroad whispered in my ear – if they get the towns, they can manipulate the states… and most – if not all – of these “Tobacco 21” moments are including e-cigarettes… take all the time you need with that…… Either way, Topeka said “NO“.

Petition:

Reject Proposed 75% Tax on NJ Vapor Industry

Directly related:

Have you ever wondered WHY they wanted to classify nicotine as “tobacco”? Because smokers paid that tax, not tobacco companies. Now, not that I like smokers still paying tax, I DON’T. Not any more than liking people NOT smoking paying the tax.

However, because they can impose tobacco taxes on a NON-tobacco product like e-liquid…. (and tops, and batteries according to National Tobacco Day)

Nothing says #KeepSmokingWeNeedTheMoney, #PonziScheme and “return on investment” like bonds that “were based on assumptions that cigarette smoking declines would not exceed 4 percent annually.”

Sounds like it’s about health, eh? 👇

Kentucky is doing the same thing.

Tobacco taxes are just part of the conversation…. We have holes in state revenue that we have to fill. How we do that is going to be how we get out of the session.”

The difference between a snafu, a shitshow, and a clusterfuck

This explains the nature of the e-cigarette fight to a “T”.

I don’t normally use “cuss” words on my blog – because it seems to me I can get my point across without them – allowing new readers to see the point and cuss themselves….

Also, this would be the first time I’ve had all out “PG” rating to a link on my blog, and because of the nature of it, I’m happy to do so.

AND from David:

David was someone who emailed me early on while conducting my survey (2014) explaining I had nicotine strength (and addiction) all wrong… I didn’t have any higher than 24… he explained strengths went higher…much higher. He explained why.

From the “pleasure principle” to many other things, I learn from this man, I appreciate this man.

Rethink attitudes…


Californian Catastrophe

In the world of funny, this is sad, and this is funny. Not because I was one mentioned within –  because it shows the power of a headline and the lack of intelligence from anyone immediately involved taking it upon themselves to jump on the stupidity bandwagon… and this is why we can’t have nice things.

It is also why, when I as a consumer, do not understand something, I ask someone smarter than I am to explain it. Of course, that practice is evidently not a familiar thing to do among professionals….they just toss it out and… well, I’ve taken up way too much of your time:
