POLICY COMMENTARY: (Christopher Snowdon) Dispersing the clouds of the vape panic myth–Illicit THC products are the problem
“Dozens of people, mainly young men, have been hospitalized after vaping in recent weeks. That is not a lie, but nor is it the whole truth. They were vaping unregulated street drugs. The forces lined up against e-cigarettes in the USA — and they are legion — have done all they can to obscure this fact.”
ADVOCACY: If you are on Twitter, tell @realDonaldTrump that flavored vapor products have NOTHING to do with recent lung hospitalizations. Those are linked to illegal THC “street vapes,” not retail nicotine products. Banning flavors will force MILLIONS of adult FORMER smokers back to smoking! #IVapeIVote
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (CASAA) Trump Administration’s Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes Does More Harm
“Flavors play a critical role in helping people transition away from combustible tobacco products. Prohibiting them means that millions of people who vape are at higher risk of returning to smoking or seeking products through other means. Meanwhile, young people will still try risky behaviors–including cannabis, alcohol, sex, texting while driving, and nicotine products. By destroying the legal, regulated retail environment, the Trump Administration will be sending millions of consumers, regardless of age, to a marketplace in the shadows–away from the oversight of regulators, law enforcement, and parents.”
