ILLINOIS: More media bias? Patient admits frequently using (likely tainted) THC carts already linked to “EVALI,” which NO ONE calls “e-cigarettes” & ignored warnings. Yet media continues to confuse & endanger the public reporting “e-cigarette use” almost killed her.
IN THE NEWS: US hysteria over #vaping having global repercussions, as Bangladesh (where 40%-45% men SMOKE) bans sale & USE of vapor products b/c of unproven “health risks” & unverified youth use, likely because of irresponsible US reporting. #QuitLying
JERSEY CITY, NJ: (CALL TO ACTION REMINDER!) Second reading for a FLAVOR BAN is on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 6:30 PM, City Hall! CONSUMERS MUST SHOW UP, even if you can’t speak. Or contact the council members NOW and tell them to oppose Ord. 19-158!
BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ: (UPDATE) With mind-boggling backwards logic to prevent teen access, officials ban vape shops (that don’t usually allow minors inside) but allow in stores open to general public (that typically sell devices most popular w/teens.)
PALO ALTO, CA: (HEADS UP!) Although county teen smoking hit a record low 1.4% & vaping was below national average at 13.2% (with DAILY vaping at just 3.1%,) city officials mull vape sales ban that hits ADULTS (but leaving cigarettes sold on every corner.)
