How Stanton Glantz went from a defender of epidemiological standards to an assailant.
Stanton Glantz is arguably the most influential anti-smoking activist of the last thirty years. To his friends, he is a pioneering hero; to his enemies, a dangerous crank.
Whether under the guise of activist or researcher, Glantz has been involved in most of the major developments in the tobacco control enterprise since 1975. He was the main proponent of 'denormalisation' in the 1970s - long before the approach even had a name. In the 1980s, he founded American for Nonsmokers Right and led the fight for the first smoking bans in his home town of San Francisco.
In the 1990s, he was the source for the claim that 50,000 Americans died every year as a result of secondhand smoke (a figure that was not accepted by the EPA). He was instrumental in bringing secret tobacco industry documents before the public and has written prolifically about almost every aspect of Tobacco Control.
The owner of Saskatoon's only liquid and electronic cigarette store is blown away by how popular his products are.
Vapor Jedi began as a small online store in Mitch Tarala’s basement last February. The business has expanded twice since then.
As Tarala sits in his new office on Circle Drive, customers stream through the front doors of the store. A menu displays over 100 flavours, from apple pie to root beer. The wall full of containers resembles a candy store.
Tarala could never have imagined how popular his products would become after starting the company to supply himself and a few friends who had made the switch from tobacco.
“Within about a month I was already needing to hire staff and everything. Just lineups down the stairs and waiting 20 minutes just to talk to me,” Tarala said.
The American Lung Association (ALA) may soon surpass the American Cancer Society (ACS) as the most dishonest anti-public-health charity in the country. It would be one thing if their position were, “smokeless tobacco poses absolutely no threat to the lungs (and decades of research show that it poses very little other risk also), while e-cigarettes might affect the lungs and have greater unknowns, and therefore we recommend that those seeking a low-risk substitute for smoking stick to smokeless tobacco.”

Battle lines are drawn and the negotiations are at a standstill, yet initiatives and legislative bills are being disgarded, in thanks to the active members of CASAA and other THR advocates, we are engaged in a battle where the TRUTH will out! Eventually!

Gov. Kasich Proposes Steep E-Cigarette Tax Hike The Heartland Institute Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions policy analyst Greg Lawson says Kasich's e-cigarette tax proposal, which would add an excise tax on vaping fluid, based on the...
It is irresponsible and reprehensible to deride and punish smokers with taxation. Years of false accusations of diseases in non-smoking others (never scientifically proven), to ostracize from public and social settings, to force American Citizens to stand unprotected from inclement weather, to demonize and criminalize and then to hound Ex-smokers who vape instead of smoke, and those that are using Electronic Cigarettes to stop some of their smoking which usually leads to complete quitting, as well because fruit and candy flavors taste so much better than burning sot. It is a crime against humanity to discourage smokers from a 95% less harmful alternative, now marketed and designed by an ADULT SCIENTIST for adults. It is disturbingly corrupt to be using healthy youths as the excuse to destroy the remainder of the adult smoker's lives that actually have real health needs to reduce their smoking. Wrongly by opinion over science, Kasich is making this viable and proven very effective alternative E-Cigarettes prohibitively expensive, prohibitedly propagandized as falsely dangerous, while encouraging the continued sales and use by youths and adults of burning combustible smoking tobacco and all the expenses, of the jobs created by small Electronic Shops (these businesses NOT BIG TOBACCO (#notblowingsmoke)(#vapingsavedmylife), the lives and misery that smokers endure, who deserve their freedom to be able to afford to choose.

Holy Roly Payoly These same ingrates ignore the needs of 450 million American Tax Paying smokers, who without them they would have not money to worry the Tribes over! To such an extent, that now that millions of smokers have quit and switched to a 99% safer alternative which contains no tobacco, crap on them now they wish to obtain monies from the new crop.
It’s been going on for a little more than a year now. Once electronic cigarette liquid became a much more common thing, poison centers started reporting an increase in nicotine poisonings across the nation. From 2011 to 2013, some are reporting increases in nicotine poisonings by as much as 300 to 500%. Approximately half of these poisonings tend to occur in children.
A sizable article in the New York Times highlights issues with the industry, referring to bottled nicotine as a powerful stimulant hitting markets nationwide. They go on to raise alarms about the powerful neurotoxins which can cause vomiting, seizures, and death.
It's here, folks. The battle royale between the regulators and the people over e-cigarettes is upon us. It started a few years ago, calmly, but with New York City banning vaping in public places, the knives are about to come out.
Personal vaporizers offer alternative to cigarettes Oklahoma Daily Since OU's smoking ban went into effect in the summer of 2012 many students, faculty and professors have been without their nicotine fix while on campus.
It is easy to discover cigarette smoke which has a distinct odor, prevailing. LOL, they will not be able to detect or restrict vaping because there is nothing produced other than steam H2o, and someone who vapes, can hold it in their lungs long enough, without health risks, and exhale nothing. The ....the "expert textpert, joker laughs at them!
This is really .... more like this SHOULD NICOTINE USERS WHETHER SMOKING OR USING AN ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE CONTINUE TO BE ABUSED AND SANCTIONED, TAXED, OSTRACIZED, ANNEXED, UNEMPLOYED, BARRED FROM HOUSING, ON AND ON!!!
