1-800-THR-VAPE

In the USA, organizations – government run/sponsored “quitlines” have long been a standard for smokers to call for “free” advice.

Imagine if there were questions about e-cigarettes that those other “quitlines” WON’T answer…

According to the FDA regulations, vape shops cannot relay “information” to customers.

What if there was an 800 number for consumers to get answers…

I’ll quote David Goerlitz:

“I strongly urge smokers who wish to cut down or quit Smoking when/if they are inclined, to educate themselves with facts that are readily available, science that has been scrutinized up one side and down the other, medical PROFESSIONALS that have verified that Vaping is 95% safer than smoking, and more importantly LISTEN and RESPECT the 9 MILLION former smokers who have successfully QUIT SMOKING”

It’s time to get louder. It’s coming.

This is LONG overdue. This is for the consumer.


Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos

“It is very interesting to once again see the inconsistency between the study findings and the press statement.”

Study titled “Benzene formation in e-cigarettes” found that air has more benzene than e-cigs

Nicotine Is NOT Addictive Without Tobacco.

“The assertion of nicotine “addiction” by “public health” is profitable and absurd.”

“Some of the more contentious issues created even more forceful debates.”

The FDA Deeming Clarification Act of 2017 (HR 1136) was introduced on Thursday, February 16th. Republican Tom Cole of Oklahoma (4th district) and Democrat Sanford Bishop of Georgia (2nd district) have built on previous legislative attempts from 2015 and 2016. HR 1136 is an updated version of HR 2058 and the Cole/Bishop amendment.

A Billion Lives

A Billion Lives has been released worldwide.

This film received NO funding to make this movie. I’ve already heard from #FreeTeamShit that it is being bootlegged.

There is no reason not to see it and NO excuse to watch it for free.

Son of a bitch, this is LESS than a bottle of e-liquid.

The Director of Scientific Communication with CASAA, Brian Carter, posted this on Twitter yesterday:

PAY for it. You can RENT it for only $3.49 or PURCHASE your copy for $9.95 here:

RENT or PURCHASE A Billion Lives


Clive Bates

Highlights from England:

  1. Realistic science
  2. Practical professional guidance and policy
  3. Reasonable public health consensus statements and policy positions
  4. Useful data
  5. Engaged consumers
  6. Groundbreaking conferences
  7. Forthright commentators

Clive never stops. He’s ALWAYS in top form.

Speaking of discrimination

Since e-cigarettes and nicotine were deemed a tobacco product on National Tobacco Day, you can be fired, or “not hired” due to tobacco use.

In some cases, adult tobacco users have even been fired from their jobs just because they use tobacco products during their free time, and that’s not right….

…in some workplaces, if you smoke or dip, you won’t get hired.

That’s all here:

Regulation gets a gander

“Future policy debates should evaluate the opportunities for vapour devices to decrease the health and social burdens of the tobacco epidemic.”

The Mayor Of TobaccoVille

Surprise, the New York mayor is poised to raise taxes is an idiot.

Bill de Blasio and Big Tobacco: Together in Smoke


Surgeon General Vivek Murthy is GONE.

That does not mean “anything”. The new SG, Sylvia Trent-Adams, surely will take her place in the saddle to do exactly as she is told.

“The results were astonishing.”

No Proof of Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine addiction MUST to be at the top five lies in public health, tobacco control and is, in my consumer-driven view, the largest lie in smoking “cessation”.

I’ve tweeted and posted this challenge to facebook to many useful idiots. Many of you have shared it, and thank you. (I’m still on a mission.)

NOT one public health expert has proven addiction to nicotine in my challenge.

Originally set at 30 days, I have not let it expire. I think they need more time.

*Think of the implications of the claim, and the multi-million dollar industry who is unable to prove me wrong.

Mike above is the VP of a company that believes lowering nicotine in cigarettes is a good idea.

More on that next week. In the meantime, they can still prove themselves right, and you can still donate to e-cigarette research.

WE are raising funds for Dr. Farsalinos & his team.

$605.00 has been raised so far.  To *donate any amount, please go here:
