Smoke and mirrors: The nanny state critics behind the vape debate

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.

Outbreak Update: New Possibilities, and the Feds Weigh In

Jim McDonald consistently breaks the mold for educating consumers.

In this first one, the title says it all.

Federal Officials Admit That Smoking Among Young Adults E-VAPORates

I would’ve bet a day of tweeting this number would have been 10%.

“In fact, the prevalence of current smoking in this group, defined in NHIS as every day or some days, was 7.8% in 2018.”

Here’s a hard pill for “experts” to swallow – from Dr. Rodu:

Considerations related to vaping as a possible gateway into cigarette smoking: an analytical review

The existence of any true gateway effect has not been clearly demonstrated, due to limited control for confounding factors.

Even if there is an effect (…) any effect on smoking prevalence will probably be quite small, and general considerations suggest that any overall population health impact of introducing e-cigarettes is still likely be beneficial.

Vaping In The News – July 13th, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


Tobacco “control” ~ Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer ~ U.S. Adults’ Attitudes Toward Lowering Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes ~ This little-known tobacco stock is a big winner from e-cigarette bans ~ Vape Shop Customers’ Experiences of E-Cigarette Use, Vape Shops and the Vaping Community ~ Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen? ~ Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood ~ Mouse-Brained Research ~ U.S. federal judge orders FDA to implement 10-month deadline for e-cig applications ~ Vape Manufacturers Must Submit PMTAs in 10 Months or Shut Down


Tobacco “Control”

The title for this is way too long, and doesn’t quite explain the lack of effort by the World Health Organization’s “Framework Convention on Tobacco Control” (FCTC)

Since 2003, they’ve accomplished bullying smokers, taxing smokers, and “controlling” tobacco, but this states there is NO evidence the FCTC has “reducing cigarette consumption” in all those years.

It’s something they’re just not good at. Evidently.

Tobacco “Control”


Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer

Oh, Dr. Gottlieb. Via Lindsey (with an “e“) Stroud.

Dear Senator Warren, the Revolving Door With Gottlieb Didn’t Start at Pfizer


U.S. Adults’ Attitudes Toward Lowering Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes

Um, yeah. A “web-based panel survey” is the best way to go to determine this, because you know, science isn’t working. Here’s a partial list of who’s FOR more cigarettes.

Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen?

See, if when more tobacco sells, you can also file this under “keep smoking we need the money”.

Is low-nicotine tobacco just another WHO smokescreen?

Vaping influencer marketing is misunderstood

I’m confident stating Michael McGrady understands the misunderstanding.

U.S. federal judge orders FDA to implement 10-month deadline for e-cig applications

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.

Vaping In the News – June 1st, 2019

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


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™.

Tobacco stocks tumble as cigarette sales decline

“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.

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.

Vape Laws Cause Teen Smoking

Because there are rules.

Vape Laws Cause Teen Smoking


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.

Man your posts.

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

Leaked | Public Gets Long Overdue Look at Youth Vaping Study

Funny, I don’t see any ambulance chasing attorneys lining up for this…

Withholding information? For “who’s” monetary gain and benefit? Huh. Racketeering, Embezzlement, Extortion, Money Laundering, Obstruction of Justice… and more falls under the R.I.C.O. Act in the United States.

A “Cease and Desist” type letter from the University of Waterloo – to Regulator Watch… “It has come to our attention”…

FDA remains committed to increasing the predictability and profitability of tobacco.

Yes, it’s just a tweet… my title corrected the FDA’s typo, Jim poked the bear.


What part of vaping is the most harmful?

Chris Price nails it as always… “They are fighting a desperate rearguard action to try and protect cigarette sales.

REMOVE all doubt.

Another stunning OUTSTANDING tweet caught my eye this week. From CASAA has said what I’ve said. A thousand times.

FDA “deemed” vaping products “tobacco” on National Tobacco Day. Do YOU agree to the definition – and “any” tax as tobacco? You accept that? Huh.

NO taxes, NO addiction, and NO gateway. They want to impose regulations, restrictions, taxes, and BANS of less smoking to cover their fiscal improprieties. PERIOD. Once they (have) take the opportunity, they’ll never stop trying to regulate, restrict, tax, and BAN less smoking.

“You’ve just ADMITTED GUILT to something that doesn’t even exist and THEY WIN.”

Pick your shovel, man your posts, start digging.


Why Big Tobacco and Big Vape love comparing nicotine to caffeine

40 gazillion coffee shops around the world… energy drinks… ahh, well. There is a “new” “Big Vape” {snicker} reference again…

Q & A With Vape Shop Owners

From “The New ‘Nico-teen’ Generation” piece, this news channel TOOK the TIME to have a question and answer session and released THIS. You may recognize some or all of these folks. They are CHANGING the CONVERSATION.

Yes, it’s 23 minutes long. YES, it’s worth watching. YES, it’s worth sharing.

New Bill in Congress Would Destroy the Vape Industry

Are you a business? Are you pissed off yet? Huh.

It’s possible Jim McDonald may raise your awareness – or at least your blood pressure. Not sure.

New Bill in Congress Would Destroy the Vape Industry


Bizarre FDA vaping retail restrictions more likely to do harm than good

Still with me? No seizures or strokes yet? Tolerance still tip-top shape? Jury isn’t in yet? Well – proceed with Clive:

Bizarre FDA vaping retail restrictions more likely to do harm than good


Popcorn Lung, Formaldehyde, and Now Seizures, Oh My!

Mad yet? Really? I’m not convinced, but our friend Lindsey might talk you down a bit. Or not. See, if you haven’t already tried to stop regulations, restricti… never mind.

Popcorn Lung, Formaldehyde, and Now Seizures, Oh My!


FDA Created the Youth Vaping Epidemic, Now It’s Doubling Down

See, YOU know they did, and I know they did, and THEY know they did. That’s how it works. Now the country believes it. Have you called anyone or shown up to stop regulations, restricti… data, resea Never mind. . .

FDA Created the Youth Vaping Epidemic, Now It’s Doubling Down


Speaking of Frank Pallone

Frank Pallone (D), New Jersey – he wants $100 million for you to not smoke. Frank is hiding behind children to regulate, restrict, tax and ban less smoking.

Link to this idiotic tweet.

You can see what New Jersey spent on smoking prevention in 2014 here.

Tobacco Wars collateral damage: feature, not bug

So, I wonder if you’ve… Never mind.

Tobacco Wars collateral damage: feature, not bug


US cigarette sales slump as vaping hits new heights

So, you’d think this is good news for the industry, have you possibly – as a business owner – had a meeting with your local and state reps? Mayor? City council? BEFORE they fini…. well…

“Sales fell by 8.8% year on year…”

They’re almost acting like they’re having convuls seizures. It’s as if their funding depends on sales – so they have to regulate, restrict, tax, and ban… never mind.

US cigarette sales slump as vaping hits new heights


Nicotine replacement: when quitting cigarettes, consider using more nicotine, not less

Do NOT limit nicotine strength.

Discussed by me (in a far less professional manner) here, it’s also here.

In Approaching Nicotine, Let’s Learn From Past Harm Reduction Victories

The more I see of Michael McGrady… so shall you.

In Approaching Nicotine, Let’s Learn From Past Harm Reduction Victories


Actual Tobacco Settlement Payments Received by the States (in millions)

A more up to date – sort of interactive source for your STATE Master Settlement Agreement RICO infested funds. (See the “”The Ponzi Scheme”: Master Settlement Agreement” section on the right blog.) This link cleverly goes to the state list, but note there are other sources included in this site to use when you take yourself to the city, county, and state you’re in business in… never mind.

(Thanks to Xavier Limodin for the link!)

Actual Tobacco Settlement Payments Received by the States (in millions)


Last, but certainly not least, I wasn’t joking when I covered the importance of businesses belonging to an, (one, any, multiple) organization(s) here. You don’t have to convince me – but belonging to a state or national group will help you prepa…. NEVER MIND.

It’s like the government is playing a game – saying to the industry: “Finish Him“.

Here, Fig explains a few things such as advertising and being louder. Without being rude.

Vaping In The News – March 30th, 2019


Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


Kids Under the Bus, Vapers Down the Slope ~
Tobacco Sales to Kids Is a Problem For States, Not Retailers ~
Public Misunderstanding of Health Risks ~ These people have lost their minds ~ David Goerlitz ~ California: ~ Why the Next FDA Chief Shouldn’t Block Alternatives to Cigarettes ~ Scott Gottlieb wants more smoking ~ Reynolds just rolled out berry and cream nicotine lozenges ~ Lozenges are to be banned in prisons


“The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.”


Kids Under the Bus, Vapers Down the Slope

This, a thought-provoking article I wish I had written. I’ll ask the question again: “At what age is a smoker considered a smoker”?

Go on, read about fascism, Tobacco Control. Never look away.

Kids Under the Bus, Vapers Down the Slope


Tobacco Sales to Kids Is a Problem For States, Not Retailers

“The simplest route to obtaining age restriction compliance seems to be FDA pressure for stronger state enforcement, rather than agency action against retailers or product categories.”

Why is “the” industry NOT talking about this? Current laws. Synar Amendment. Scapegoats. Sheep.

Tobacco Sales to Kids Is a Problem For States, Not Retailers


Brick walls can be used to bang your heads against… or you can talk to them all you like.


Public Misunderstanding of Health Risks is “a Good Thing” According to Some in the Tobacco Control Movement

Again, perception. TALKING about this. PUBLIC perception. Legislative perception. Talking heads. YOUR business.

“Telling the truth is a core ethical value of public health practice. But maybe not so much in tobacco control.”

Public Misunderstanding of Health Risks is “a Good Thing” According to Some in the Tobacco Control Movement


These people have lost their minds. Now, evidently – nicotine “stops” brain growth.

David Goerlitz

David is facing some lung procedures shortly, updates will be coming soon.


California:

Fig Ramsey has graciously shown quite a few “snippets” of what industry is facing in California including this idiot Phillip Gardiner.


Why the Next FDA Chief Shouldn’t Block Alternatives to Cigarettes

Dr. Gottlieb has decided to leave his position as Commissioner of the FDA.

Why the Next FDA Chief Shouldn’t Block Alternatives to Cigarettes


Scott Gottlieb wants more smoking before he leaves.

(“Lower nicotine” is covered by me here and how much the “public health” groups organized crime supports it, here.)

-Meanwhile, below – and before he leaves, he wants to be sure his legacy includes more combustible tobacco.

From the above article: “The FDA should be allowing private solutions that reduce the amount of cigarette smoking, not leading efforts that would help maintain it.”

Yet here we are.


Reynolds just rolled out berry and cream nicotine lozenges

Because I can never get enough…. and because it’s there:

Reynolds just rolled out berry and cream nicotine lozenges


Lozenges are to be banned in prisons.

As a footnote, I’ll include this for your entertainment but will use my “do not link” effort because I despise the Daily Fail.

Lozenges are to be banned in prisons
