Smokers Deserve Improved FDA E-Cigarette Regulation: Pass Cole-Bishop
Report from the WCToH 2018 conference in Cape Town
Interesting slice of info.
The Cult-Like Stupidity At #WCTOH2018
Because Dick Puddlecote is extremely aware…
Tobacco Control’s Orwellian Statement Of ‘Human Rights’ From #WCTOH2018
Carl, Nuff said…….
Tobacco Control Addicts
I think I’ve found the same level of snark I try to get you to enjoy with my blog… I need to blog more…
‘Oh, what a lovely war’ – on reason itself
Outstanding….via Paddy Costall
I don’t understand, David! Ruffling feathers isn’t… yes it is. #Louder.
It has been brought to my attention that I am not giving the wackos, zealots, liars and nutjobs of the @WCTOH2018 the respect they feel they should be getting. Bite me ASSWIPES.

Italian Authorities Raid Vaping Expo, Seize Product
Don’t you come in here trying to get the government to lose money… more to it that that.
My favorite #CrankyOldBroad has found an accomplice….
Because if nicotine WEREN'T the focus, anti-alt product zealots would have nothing to do & media might actually have to work at reporting properly.

IQOS: Good Thing, or Bad?
From Paul, a review of sorts… can’t wait to try one…
LOVE this as well…. different perspective.
Tobacco Product Taxes Are Regressive. And Punitive.
The FDA is accepting comments for “standards” in combustible cigarettes.
The FDA wants to reduce the nicotine in cigarettes to “non-addictive levels”
Of course they do.
How Will FDA’s Low-Nicotine Cigarettes Affect Vaping?
Required reading for you who’ve made it this far down…
FDA’s Low-Nicotine Cigarettes Rule Is A Dire Threat To Vaping
One more time. And really, listen as you read.
FDA Creates Cigarette Confusion- Calls For Science To Back Up Policy
It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.
It is an area which we call The #KeepSmokingWeNeedTheMoney Zone.
This isn’t like “lowering nicotine” hasn’t been tried before…
“The ultra-low-nicotine cigarette is the latest entry in an increasingly feverish race among tobacco manufacturers to stop a decline of 2 percent a year in cigarette consumption in the United States. (Sound familiar?)
”It’s a pretty common, patented process that we’re all aware of,” said Douglas Keeney, chairman of C. A. Blockers. He said his company had experimented with eliminating nicotine, but had abandoned it as being too slow and unwieldy.”
And here if necessary to continue the very silly point….
Lowering nicotine in cigarettes “bonus section”.
I don’t think I’ve ever given out a bonus on my blog… so there’s that. I take my position blogging as a consumer seriously. While I appreciate my regular readers, I also want smokers who are curious (or afraid) to find answers. I ask questions; how will a new idea to reduce smoking and dangers from inhaling smoke (like IQOS above) by choice “work”? Are they better? Are they the same?
Along those lines, same goes with the ever-popular “reduced nicotine” claim.
As far as “other chemicals go….. “experts” (a term I’ve finally come to admit is rather funny) aren’t saying a reduction of anything but nicotine… if they are making that claim, PLEASE let me know.
Moving on – You knew this was coming. So – I have to ask. This morning, Cliff Doug – “VP for Tobacco Control, American Cancer Society, and faculty, University of Michigan School of Public Health” answered my 1st question “What exactly will be different from 1989?”.
Being a smartass with his response, which I do appreciate, I asked the question again… (***politely for the record***) with obvious repercussions if he answered. We both knew that…..
Cliff Douglass himself recently unblocked us on Twitter – for some strange reason – maybe he likes a challenge. Challenge accepted.
Thanks for engaging, I had this comment on my blog, are you clarifying the reduction in nicotine in the product(s) are also reducing other cancer causing chemicals? pic.twitter.com/2L84UU3ASC

I wonder if he’s calling someone? Is he unavailable suddenly for comment? Must be something like that. He left me standing on the edge of a ….
Cliff simply…..hasn’t answered yet. I won’t hold my breath, but the sound of silence is deafening.
After all, all he was just tweeting about is what would have a dramatic impact on public health.
I’ll blog about that this week along with David Goerlitz and more… you’ve been warned.
