The "Evil Empire," aka three famous non-profit disease organizations that receive the bulk of their finances from Big Pharma, plus one anti-nicotine organization that is supported largely by tobacco settlement money, has issued a manifesto to guide their staff and volunteers at the local level. You can read the document here: http://vaperscoalition.org/FPGD.pdf Translation: We are very concerned about the decrease in profits of the pharmaceutical companies that support us. Translation: We don't give a darn what the courts have to say about it, we want what we want and we want it now. So in the meantime, we are putting our paid lobbyists to work at the local level to circumvent the courts. [Yeah, I know, we had to parse their last sentence 3 or 4 times, too. The wording is very awkward.] Translation: We want a a comprehensive ban that doesn't allow any sales whatsoever to anyone, regardless of age. Do not, under any circumstances, settle for a ban that only prohibits sales to minors. We know the kids aren't buying them anyway, so that ban won't do us any good. The point is to prevent all the smokers (who are mostly adults) from being able to quit! Translation: We know that e-cigarettes don't actually create any air quality problems, but we want them specifically included in indoor smoking bans -- provided that the wording of the legislation doesn't support the Federal court's decision that e-cigarettes should be considered tobacco products. Translation: We are scared to death by the fact that so many smokers are becoming abstinent by using e-cigarettes. Maybe if we claim that it can't possibly be true unless a scientist says so, we can snow the average Joe. Translation: The only way we make money if is those smokers continue to try (and fail) and try (and fail) to quit using the FDA-approved products sold by our benefactors. Translation: On the other hand, all of the misleading (and even downright untrue) claims that we make and that the FDA makes are perfectly legal.
