Are YOUR kids as stupid as the Government says they are?

10th January 2017

If you had to rate the intelligence of your kids on a scale of 1-10, where would they come? And no, this question is not rude, nor rhetorical, it’s designed to make you stop and think; so, go on, rate your kids. Done it? Good. Now you are asking - Why? Because Governments and Governmental Agencies have strategies they employ when they want to get their policies accepted by the masses, (us) without the masses thinking about it too much. One very popular one is - ‘think of the children’. Ironic eh? So, in this post this is exactly what we are going to do. Many of us…

The Year in E-Cigarettes: The Good, The Bad and Reasons for Optimism

4th January 2017

As the year draws to a close, electronic cigarettes remain as controversial and as poorly understood among the general public as they were a year ago. Are e-cigarettes re-normalizing smoking? Are kids using them as a stepping stone to combustible cigarettes? Are e-cigarettes as harmful as the real thing? That paragraph was written on December 31 of 2015 by Sally Satel for Forbes. But it’s just as true a year later, so she wrote it again. She continues with: As a new year begins, I hope that the incoming decision-makers at the Department of Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug…

DO E-CIGARETTES MAKE TOBACCO USE SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE? RESEARCH SAYS NOT

22nd December 2016

The Center for Substance Use and Research (CSUR), Glasgow, Scotland, have recently conducted a study that discredits the theory that e-cigarettes make tobacco use social acceptable. Since the introduction of e-cigarettes on to the market, there have been a number of scare mongering stories claiming that e-cigarettes make smoking look attractive thus normalizing the use of tobacco and encouraging the act of smoking. This theory has been discredited by CSUR, Glasgow’s recent study which lays out the following findings: – 96% of non-smokers aged between 16-29 could easily differentiate between cigarettes and e-cigarettes and considered the devices to be used only for quit…

Sickness is a very lucrative business, why would they want you healthy?

15th December 2016

Why the Surgeon General’s report on e cigarettes was inevitable when ill health is a lucrative business. The Surgeon General’s report provided no surprises, no shocks, only more incredulity that the alleged top physician in the land should write, or give his name to a report so lacking in facts you could use it as a colander. CASAA have written a fantastic response to the report and kindly filled in the facts for him and his staff, and for those that still believe that e-cigarettes are as harmful as smoking. This article though is not going to discuss the Surgeon General’s report,…

Stark Contrast Between Current And Past Surgeon Generals

13th December 2016

Last Thursday 12/8/16 the Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy released his report  - E-cigarette Use Among Youth and Young Adults.   The report, which focuses on vaping among young people, acknowledges that e-cigarettes are less harmful than traditional cigarettes, as previous research has shown. But the surgeon general says there is not strong evidence that the devices are effective at helping people to quit smoking cigarettes, and concludes that vaping is “strongly associated” to the use of other tobacco products. The focus on youth vaping, which no one is condoning, did a massive disservice to the millions of adult smokers that have used…

The FDA is Destroying the Vaping Industry – Why Doesn’t Anyone Really Care?

8th December 2016

Four months have passed since the FDA Deeming Regulations went into effect, and to quote a famous American novel, “it’s all quiet on the Western front.”   Sure, there were a handful of lawsuits filed and advocacy groups are continuing to fight albeit in a fight that cannot be won against Big Tobacco and Big Pharmaceutical.   And, Totally Wicked USA brought the real issues to the forefront with our announcement that we will close our USA business in August of 2018 solely based on the abomination that is the Deeming Regulations.  However, I find myself constantly asking why no one else…

Tobacco Tax, Wall Street and Some Incredibly Stupid Decisions

29th November 2016

Tobacco tax is known as a ‘sin’ tax. Which is a state sponsored excise tax specifically levied on certain goods deemed harmful to society and/or objects of widespread disapproval. In our case tobacco. The idea behind the sin tax is that it discourages certain behaviours without making them illegal... (we all know how successful prohibition was...). But sin taxes are regressive, as they hit the poorest the hardest, taking a larger portion from their income than from the wealthier, and in the long term, as we shall discover they are not good economics. Despite this, Governments love them as they sound great to the…

Tobacco Control and the FDA

21st November 2016

Tobacco control in the US really began in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It took off after a joint letter to President Kennedy from the American Cancer Society, The National Tuberculosis Association, and the American Public Health Association warning about the dangers of smoking. Following that, 1965 saw the first warnings on cigarette packages, 1969 saw advertising of cigarettes banned on the TV and radio, and the 1970’s saw an increase in campaigning against tobacco. In 1980 Tobacco Control advocacy increases, and 1984 sees the FDA approve nicotine chewing gum as a cessation tool. Ironically four years later, in 1988, nicotine is…

FDA 101

18th November 2016

Fun fact: The FDA regulates approximately 25 cents of every dollar spent annually by American consumers. So who or what is the FDA? Created for consumer protection, the FDA came into being in 1862 and was originally one lonely chemist. (Today, the FDA employs well over 10,000 personnel). The late 1800’s was a time of snake oil and fantastical magical remedies and the FDA creation was in response to this, with the aim of weeding out the charlatans. When the Food and Drug Act was passed in 1906 by President Roosevelt, there was a genuine need to see what was an effective medicine,…
