I hope this year-end edition of Vaping In The News finds you all in good health and spirits, and I hope to see you all with better vision in 2020!

Congress Raises Tobacco Use Age to 21

Although vaping products are wrongly, and politically classified as “tobacco“, There should be no need to ban flavors if kids can’t obtain them, right?

The bipartisan Tobacco 21 push is a flawed effort supported by big tobacco and prohibitionists

Mike makes me think. I’d like to make you think. Once you’ve digested it, you’ll have insight.

Vape Bans Won’t Make You Safer

No need for science or facts folks. Orchestrated hysteria is what is necessary to manipulate public opinion. This is full of great references and should not be missed.

While the United States health sector wants to ban vaping products…. across the pond, they’re encouraging them.

Newest CDC Data Confirm that Respiratory Disease Outbreak was Caused by Vitamin E Acetate Oil in THC Vaping Cartridges

This speaks for itself. Repetitively. Repeatedly. Over and over…

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

Understanding in 2014 there was no “gateway“, this where the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and Truth Initiative realized the 20% fulfillment rate of recruiting new smokers wasn’t working out so well for them – so they created a an “epidemic” and a “new” “problem”.

“There was a substantial increase in youth vaping prevalence beginning in about 2014. Time trend analyses showed that the decline in past 30-day smoking prevalence accelerated by two to four times after 2014.”

Vaping In The News – December 7th, 2019

Image may contain: 1 person, text and outdoor

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.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


Vape shop owner: I quit smoking thanks to vaping. Banning flavors hurts adults like me ~ American Lung Association’s Lies About E-Cigarettes are Dangerous and Irresponsible ~ Although Teenagers Are 80% Less Likely to Smoke Than They Were in 1999, the CDC Insists No Progress Has Been Made ~ Read between the lines ~ Tweets of the week ~ Christmas for Massachusetts Vape Families ~ Grinch Relief Fund ~ Curiosity ~ Obsolete tobacco control themes can be hazardous to public health ~ Silly thoughts ~ Smoke-Free Radio


Vape shop owner: I quit smoking thanks to vaping. Banning flavors hurts adults like me

This is from Nick Orlando himself.

“We’ve built a community. Our stores are not just places for people to buy vapor products for recreational use. My stores are educational spaces for adult smokers to feel comfortable visiting and coming in to ask questions and learn how to quit a habit that could kill them…”

Vape shop owner: I quit smoking thanks to vaping. Banning flavors hurts adults like me


American Lung Association’s Lies About E-Cigarettes are Dangerous and Irresponsible

Dr. Siegel once again slaps the stupid out of some strange decision by the Lung Association to… Well, they’re out of ideas, so they’re going all out on propaganda.

American Lung Association’s Lies About E-Cigarettes are Dangerous and Irresponsible


Although Teenagers Are 80% Less Likely to Smoke Than They Were in 1999, the CDC Insists No Progress Has Been Made

Jacob Sullum – explains this no progress thingy much better than I can:

That is true only if you define tobacco-free e-cigarettes as “tobacco products,” which the CDC does, and if you ignore the enormous difference between the hazards of smoking and the hazards of vaping, which the CDC also does.

Tweet(s) of the Week!

This guy… THIS guy. He’s got something to say:


Next — Greg Conley takes an idiot to task, and the idiot tries to ignore it. Something about water…


Next, and importantly, there was some ruckus about a survey this week. Sheila Vakharia PhD MSW clearly explains there are “major issues with how they present their findings” in this thread… you can see them all if you click on the original tweet. (If you’re not on Twitter, join!!!)


Christmas for Massachusetts Vape Families

As with all links for fundraisers over the course of time, if you can, give. If you can’t, share.

Christmas for Massachusetts Vape Families

Grinch Relief Fund.

Same sentiments as just above… if you can, do, if you can’t – share!

Grinch Relief Fund.


Curiosity is the number one reason children try vaping products. Answers for flavors are here.

To keep children safe, we MUST demand to remove curiosity, intrigue, and inquisitiveness from blatant subliminal advertising from any and all non-profit-political-non-governmental-front-groups immediately.

Please, “Think of the children™.”

So that got someone to thinking on Facebook… and said to me – “the curiosity figure is 2.5 times higher than flavours, wouldn’t that be an increase of 151%, roughly?”

Well… there you go. Subliminal messaging: 151% stronger than flavors.


Obsolete tobacco control themes can be hazardous to public health

Skip tossed this one at me just before finishing the news today…

“It is important to make clear distinctions between the classes of tobacco/nicotine products as they differ substantially in risk to the user…”

Are they SO far out of touch with reality they can’t do their jobs, or are they completely in tune to what they’re doing… adults are told they’re addicted to nicotine, and “keep trying” with inefficient products. Kids are blitzed with products they shouldn’t use or have access to… yet here we are.

Obsolete tobacco control themes can be hazardous to public health


Silly thoughts…

Link

Silly question – did U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar (or any other “public health” group in attendance) have advanced knowledge – or withhold information of, this “just released” Tobacco Product Use and Associated Factors Among Middle and High School Students — survey information on November 22nd while discussing trying to manipulate flavor bans in the presence of President Trump?

If any of them already knew it was curiosity, not flavors, that the pesky children chose as an answer… then…. yeah… you think I’m reaching. Understandable, I know – he wasn’t in a court of law… but think about it.


Smoke-Free Radio.

I join Patrick and Fig on Smoke-Free Radio on Friday nights. We were being thankful…and we were saying it… because it isn’t said enough. There were thousands I’m sure we missed — even if you weren’t mentioned by name last week, we thanked you, and people like you.

Fill your tanks, it only the first two hours…

Vaping In The News–April 8th, 2017

news8.jpg

Vaping In The News – April 2nd – April 8th, 2017

HR1136 ~ Australia ~ Canada ~ Across The Pond ~ Advertising ~ Nicotine Challenge ~ Bill Godshall Update ~ Incoherent Screams



HR1136, The Cole-Bishop

Consumers, this from CASAA:

The FDA Deeming Clarification Act of 2017 (HR 1136) was introduced on Thursday, February 16th. Republican Tom Cole of Oklahoma (4th district) and Democrat Sanford Bishop of Georgia (2nd district) have built on previous legislative attempts from 2015 and 2016. HR 1136 is an updated version of HR 2058 and the Cole/Bishop amendment.

HR 1136 – Modernizing the predicate date for vapor products is a vital first step


People, you must get louder.

The regulations of e-cigarettes (worldwide) have only one thing to stand on.

I’ve covered the tragedy officials claim, however, any regulations have boiled down to one reason. Money.

They disguise their greed to the public with nicotine “addiction” & “The Children™.

(It is one in the same).

  • Parents, please pay attention to your ankle-biters and activities at local quick marts
  • Obviously, despite their own opinion, tobacco control programs are useless.
  • Evidently, the laws already in place by lawmakers can’t be properly enforced.
  • I’m questioning the claim of nicotine “addiction” here
  • The government, public health, and politicians have more at stake than your measly life. They don’t care.

HR 1136 gains early co-sponsors. Take a moment to say THANK YOU!

If you don’t, you’re effectively agreeing with whatever they throw at us, and the future of those consumers who will have less to choose from.

Get louder.


Australia:

Good news for tobacco control, cigarettes are still safe and available in Australia. Government approved. There is insufficient evidence for the safety of e-cigarettes. Sorry, smokers.

Please, keep smoking.

 


CANADA

The Tobacco Harm Reduction Association of Canada (T.H.R.A) had its say representing consumers in Canada this week at the Senate Committee on Social Affairs with bill S-5.

Lively (and predictable) questions are well fielded by THRA’s Policy Advisor David Jones and Jaye Blancher. David starts around 16:17:

Live Presentations


LOUDER Across The Pond

It’s no secret, I do adore THE Fergus Mason, and you should as well. He’s given his view on the “undercover” investigation by the Royal Society for Public Health.

I’ll let The Fergus Mason take it from here before he flys over here and beats me up –

Vapers in Power responds to the RSPH


By the way

Screw irony. Hello incompetence!

I can’t fix stupid. I certainly won’t miss an opportunity to point it out.

The same RSPH “health charity” (above) says tobacco advertising should be “banned in all forms” . . . . . .

By advertising tobacco in a tweet.

Take your time.

I’ll wait.

Are we good? You ok?


E-cigarette Fundraiser continues

To *donate any amount, please go here to the GoFundMe page:

Nicotine Addiction: An Open 30-Day Public Health Challenge

WE are raising funds for Dr. Farsalinos & his team.

So far the nicotine challenge has been ignored by public health, tobacco control, and government.

Sharing is caring. They really need to focus and try harder. It’s for their own good. (They’ve been tweeted, linked, asked, told, questioned, etc.)

We have raised $605.00 and one challenge has been submitted.

Make some noise while I continue to make a mockery of the claim and an ass of myself.

Donate here.


No one should EVER miss

The Bill Godshall Update via ecigarette-politics:

A hefty list as always:

Bill Godshall Update 2017-03-29


This. Just. Pisses. Me. Off.


Incoherent Screams:

Some idiots decided to “mine” tweets to observe “influencers” to determine and analyze “information shared on Twitter for insights into initial public reactions” to the regulations.

Here’s my shameless self-promotion:
