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 Taxes Tempt States but Bring Challenges


No sale to minors

In the real world, Keith Gossett’s “Bucky’s Vape Shop” in Columbus, Georgia has a short 44 second video, with audio (shared with permission).

No sale to minors.

Another from Dave. Did I mention I love Dave?

You Don’t Know Nicotine

This “yet to be released” film is about nicotine, not vaping. Controversy is controversy. I’ll take it.



Vaping and the Mic

Tony Ottomanelli takes the subject of Mike Peterson to task as one of the voices in the industry.

Australian researchers claim to have found the mythical gateway!

Well well well. Exaggerated, inconsistent claims from down under.

The Vaping Legion

The “Master Settlement Agreement” is a contract. It creates revenue. For government and HEALTH organizations. From smokers. Buying cigarettes. Repeatedly. Never expires. Vaping is bad. In other words, please, keep smoking, we need the money.

This is well worth the hour.

Vaping In The News covers media stories on smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, exposing tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies and more worldwide.

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

More heat than light

Clive takes us on a ride…

More heat than light – new US statistics on youth vaping provide no basis for FDA policy


Pace of US smoking rate decline mirrors rapid rise in popularity of vaping

For about four years I’ve been told e-cigarettes – “even non-nicotine e-cigarettes” are a gateway TO smoking… This must be a coincidence.

My favorite reference:

glantz non nic

Huh.

Caught red-handed

Speaking of liars, Christopher Snowden has an example.

Caught red-handed


Everyone should celebrate 20 years of failure.

Professor Glantz, shown with his hand in his pocket (not sure if that is him fondling Master Settlement Agreement funds, a court ordered gesture – or good idea).


Honor Among Thieves

The public is convinced tobacco companies pay for the the largest pyramid/ponzi scheme ever created. Smokers pay the ransom to demean themselves – to protect the tobacco companies.

“The major U.S. tobacco companies settled litigation with the states on November 23, 1998, in what is known as the Master Settlement Agreement, which requires the tobacco companies to pay out annually in perpetuity.”

“The BOH (Board of Health) had essentially pre-voted on its inclusion of electronic nicotine delivery devices, without public comment or any information from parties opposing inclusion under the CIAA enforcement, and well before the BOH meeting.”👇

Altria is reportedly in talks to take a minority stake in Juul

No surprise… They’re buying the competition.

Tobacco products promoted on Facebook despite policies

Since the 1970’s, there has been a ban on the advertising of tobacco. In 1970, President Nixon signed a law called the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act  – banning cigarette ads on T. V. and radio – beginning January 2nd of 1971. (Link). To get around it, media runs combustible tobacco images along side ‘anti-tobacco’ groups –  and has for years.

Side note: The US Government has been secretly recruiting underage smokers since 1992 at an acceptable “noncompliance rate of no more than 20%“.

On August 8, 2016, the United States legally defined and, on National Tobacco Day, “deemed” nicotine as tobacco. Without a doubt, advertising on social media of e-liquid is both self-promoted and promoted by consumers. The government, media and tobacco control continue to do both.

Because I like to tug on short hairs… I’m surprised the e-cigarette market is still legally able to advertise on social media (with the idiotic nicotine warning). While anarchy and mob rules may apply for some, I wonder – with legal definition – just how long advertising will be -ignored- (also federal tobacco taxes imposed) and how long it will take to try to knock it all down – if they could only do it without emotion.

I think the push has started.

When money talks, the truth walks

“Before you embark on this nefarious enterprise, make sure you have sufficient funds to deliver on all that follows.”

When money talks, the truth walks
