A Long Letter to Ms. Kimmel for MN House
Skip has an undeniable knack to get to the heart of the matter. Without question, she has once again outdone herself.
Vaping vs Smoking: 40 experts teach you healthier alternative
I was asked to participate in this.
Beyond the Headlines, E-Cigarette Vapor Has Only Trace Amounts of Metals
The headlines misrepresent or over-dramatize the facts…
Who among you uses nearly four gallons of liquid?
Via Brad Rodu:
Without rambling, I, as a consumer, WANT to know the truth. Good or bad….
Dr. Farsalinos remains at the top of my list over the years as the “go to”… he won’t lie or sugarcoat, and is diligent in his explanations.
I don’t think the man has had a rest in the past 10 years. If you meet him, please shake his hand for me.
Testimony Before the Indiana Public Health Committee
Is it possible?
My favorite subject.
Air monitoring at large public electronic cigarette events.
I’ve covered this before…at length with Meg about pounding sand here.
See here George – what we’re going to do is get volunteers to act like the public and get them to go in to this convention with backpacks with a hidden an air sampling pump.
We’ll do it discreetly and try to be all sciency. Boy, I sure hope we can get away with it…. then, we’ll use those backpacks to stash all that grant money!
There are FEW professionals who are bold enough to stand UP and make some noise.
This exchange below showing Simon Chapman being challenged about being challenged is louder. I want to personally thank you who are standing UP and fighting like Dr. Wodak, Dr. Danko and others. You know who you are.
Very interesting exchange between a usually invisible famous anti vaper (because he blocks most pro vapers) and a famous harm reduction advocacy doctor. pic.twitter.com/JoFCtwXt7B

If you’re interested, here’s the full thread.
Landmark U.S. Study
The American Cancer Society has changed their wording on their position… I’m still skeptical, however….

And Still We Stand Back Meekly
WELL worth the read…
“A massive Ponzi scheme that can be brought crashing down by we, the people, simply waking up.”
Science Lesson: Lamppost Epidemiology And The Lack Of Self-Correction
Carl sheds some light on the hard work of searching where the best answers can be found – or not…
I’ll call this one “The Emperor wears no bias”.
Yes, he actually tweeted this! pic.twitter.com/OF58m57vov

These are some of the people…..
I purposely haven’t found myself in or around a vaping convention of any kind… I still have never been to one. That subject is for another time.
I did, however, take a trip up to Columbus, Ohio last weekend. On purpose.
A long overdue meet with a few stellar people at the Vapor Station (Hilliard, Ohio) with (among others) James Jarvis (& his wife) of the Ohio Vapor Trade Association, FIG Ramsey who I’ve adored since forever… and the brain behind Gonzo Gives… Mike Peterson of 2 Stone Vaping, and finally, a man I’ve admired and
stalked followed since December of 2014, and met briefly after the premiere of A Billion Lives, David Goerlitz.
If these are the people I’m surrounded by and engaging with at a vaping convention, I’ll be at every single one I can get to. These are some of the people who are making some noise. These are some of the people who are paying attention. These are some of the people around the country who are #LoudER. These are some of the people who are passionate, caring and attentive. These are some of the people making the world a better place. These are just some of the people who DO something.
Surrounding myself with those smarter than I – is my goal, and that was achieved.
Here’s me just moments (or an hour or so) after I touched a Fig.
Smoke Free Radio.
Yes, it’s two hours. Maybe Dimitris, Fig and James are wearing pants… you’ll need to find out!
