        FDA reports “over 350” products passed the first stage of the PMTA process—instead of the actual number that’s closer to 5,000—perhaps in an attempt to pacify anti-harm reduction groups calling for a total ban on vapor products.

          In a letter dated Sept. 8 to the president of the Alaskan Senate, Gov. Mike Dunleavy indicated he has vetoed Senate Bill 45, which would have added a 35 percent wholesale tax to vaping products and severely restricted shipping options for Alaskan vapers. The bill also harmonized the state minimum age to purchase tobacco and vaping products with federal law.

          Dunleavy said in his letter to the Senate that "a tax on the people of Alaska is not something I can support."

                A recent study complains that vape advocates are winning the Twitter war by spreading truthful information that anti-vaping public health academics really don't want people to know. A terrific new blog post by @cjsnowdon exposes the ridiculousness of it.

                    "Californians should focus on inevitable substitution amongst nicotine sources. Banning flavored vaping liquids will cause some people to revert to the riskier alternative of cigarette smoking. Public health rules should reflect the relative risks..."

                      Healthy People 2010 Logo.png


                      Today we’re looking at the Healthy People goals to reduce smoking.

                      From 1998-2008, adult smoking dropped just 3.5 percentage points to 20.6%. From 2008-2020, smoking dropped a whopping 8.1 points to 12.5% - just shy of the 12% goal.

                      The high school smoking target was 16%. From 1999-2009, smoking dropped 14.5 points. But between 2009-2013, the decline slowed, dropping only 4.5 points.

                      Then in 2014, it had dropped a staggering 3.5 points in just one year! By 2021, it was down by another 7.3 points to 1.9%.

                      Did tired, old tobacco control methods suddenly start working better after 2013? Did they stumble upon a new tactic to keep people from smoking?

                      Or did people who would have otherwise started smoking instead turn to less harmful nicotine products?

                      We think we know the answer.

                        In this newly published study, researchers looked into the public's misconceptions about vaping and concluded:
                        "Addressing the growing misperception about ENDS has the potential to contribute to public health by encouraging smokers’ switching to ENDS."

                          Juul has filed a lawsuit against the FDA, accusing the agency of violating the federal Freedom of Information Act by withholding a majority of the "scientific disciplinary reviews" underlying the sales ban.

                            A judge in Washington County, Oregon ruled AGAINST the county’s ban on flavored tobacco (the main target really being low risk vapor products that help millions of adults quit smoking,) saying that such bans are a decision of the state, not the counties.

                                    Past 30 day smoking & vaping declined since 2019 (7% to 5.5% & 28.7% to 17.4% respectively) in addition to ever-vaping dropping from 45.1% to 31.7% w/out flavor bans. Yet TC still claims vaping is somehow "turning the tide" of declining smoking rates. 1/3


                                    2/3 Also note how data is reported. The extremely low smoking rate isn't reported at all in the first article & here the smoking rate is teens reporting having smoked at least once a day in the past 30 days vs. the rate of teens reporting EVER-vaping.


                                    3/3 Meanwhile, sexual assault rose from 11.9% to 14.2%; serious contemplation of suicide rose from 16.4% to 18.5%; drinking alcohol before age 13 rose from 23.8% to 25.6%; binge drinking (5 or more) rose from 32.7% to 34.4% & marijuana use before age 13 rose from 16.6% to 18.5%.

                                      If you're in public health research and truly wanted to save lives, you'd LEAD with vaping being associated with a "39% percent less risk of MI when compared to traditional smoking" AND make it very clear that the "vapers" who were compared with never-vapers also had a history of smoking.

                                        Every American should have the right to use vaping to quit cigarettes. Critical health decisions should be up to the individual. Not the FDA. Not the CDC. And certainly not nanny-state politicians in Congress.

                                        This fundamental belief underlies our entire effort. That’s why we need leaders who recognize vaping as a powerful harm reduction tool and the single most effective smoking cessation device ever created.

                                        Millions of American adults vape to quit smoking, and our coalition continues to grow despite every hurdle thrown at us by overzealous bureaucrats in Washington. The only way we can stop the outright prohibition of vaping is to mobilize and vote.

                                        Join us today, and together we will tell our elected officials: We Vape, We Vote.

                                          This one pulls out all of those anti-vaping myths, misdirection and lies, then fails to report that teen vaping has declined dramatically (and smoking is down to historic lows,) that the 2 million teens "vaping" includes those who had even 1 puff in the past month, and that the 4.9% of high school teens who vape frequently would otherwise be SMOKING.
