    No, smoking isn't "back" on Capitol Hill, but it sure seems like some folks thought that was the perfect way to vilify their opposition. Nothing is worse than people who smoke, right? Kind of explains the anti-harm reduction attitude of "quit or die."

      I thought you advocated for vaping versus Smoking Cigarettes???

      Did you even read the entire article you linked? The far-right is advocating for smoking cigarettes etc. in the House of Representatives.

      You might consider verifying stories like that rather than simply posting far-right misinformation. The Washington Free Beacon is laughably far-right.

      FWIW Patricia Zengerle's tweet is 100% accurate and true. Reuters is center based and very highly respected around the world. The Washington Free Beacon - - - is not.

      Smoking IS ALLOWED in congressional members' private offices. Here are the facts...


      Today, nearly all areas of the Capitol complex are smoke-free.

      But there’s one significant, elusive exception to the smoke-free rule: congressional members’ private offices.

      It may come as a surprise that members of Congress can still light up in their offices—after all, it’s been more than a decade since the District of Columbia passed a smoke-free air law that covers indoor workplaces. But congressional offices are exempt from that law and have remained conspicuous exceptions to even the most recent congressional rules regarding smoke-free air protections.

      Congress should change that.

              Think about "convicted of vaping." They're talking about nicotine, a legal substance that doesn't cause intoxication. So safe it's sold OTC as gum and lozenges in sweet flavors. With the same repercussions as smoking, alcohol and controlled substances.

                  "En banc" means ALL judges of the 5th Court will now hear the case, rather than just a smaller panel of judges from the court. Triton will now have the opportunity to introduce information for the court to assess that wasn't available to the first panel.

                    The Tempe, AZ flavor ban proposal has run into serious problems: Facts and common sense.

                    This balanced article by Elias Weiss points out the huge decline in teen vaping/smoking and how the ban would impact adults who depend on the products to quit smoking.

                        House Bill 3090 (1st reading on 1.24.23) is a FLAVOR BAN that "is the next step in reducing the number of people who vape." An unbelievably short-sighted, unscientific and reckless goal that will inevitably lead to MORE SMOKING.

                              This week the agency rejected Vuse menthol refills, stating that tobacco-flavored products don't "have the same appeal to youth" so don't "pose the same degree of risk.” However, tobacco flavor also doesn't have the same appeal to ADULTS, which decreases the chances that they'll quit SMOKING, which is a far greater public health risk.

                              Reporting by CASAA director Jim McDonald for Vaping360.
