Dear @realDonaldTrump , @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar
Looks like I am not the only one that no longer wants to vote for #Trump in 2020 if he goes through with the #EjuiceBan.

@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar Also- It's important to note that the deaths and most likely ALL of the illness related to #vaping were from blackmarket #THC juice, not commercially sold juice. I have smokers bronchitis (still) if anyone were to get sick from this stuff, it would be me. Not a young person.
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS @FLOTUS @WhiteHouse @SecAzar Here is a screen shot from one of the most popular #ejuice sellers online. It is the flavor profiles offered. Do you see #Tobacco flavor?
Nope, it is in there under #menthol flavors but only 6% of #vapers in a survey liked Tobacco flavor compared to #dessert and fruit flavors.

Why is Trump banning flavored #ecigs when other developed first world countries are embracing them and even placing #vape shops inside hospitals (UK)?

What motive does the USA have to not embrace #vaping despite the fact that #vapingsaveslives ? /1
In this country there is a profit motive in healthcare. Those profits are largely made in the insurance & pharmaceutical sector. All current available and FDA approved smoking cessation products are pharmaceuticals manufactured. 2/
When #vaping showed up. It was a small business grass roots industry with a single mission to provide tobacco harm reduction solutions to smokers and to disrupt the scourge that #BigTobacco has left on our country. 3/

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

To offset "lost" #tobacco tax profits, the US govt wants to impose a tax on people who quit #smoking. The #Vape industry must stop trying to appease our fundamentalist enemy and join consumers in fighting this atrocity

I want to make one thing crystal clear: I will not pay the government a fine for quitting #smoking. If this predatory tax is enacted I expect the US #vaping industry to help consumers circumvent the theft and supply the tax-free extralegal free market by any means available
#BigTobacco stocks spiked against a sluggish market because of the announcement that the US government will impose punitive taxation against people who quit or never start #smoking thanks to the #harmless and effective #vaping alternative:
$PM +2.1% 📈
$MO +1.2% 📈
DJI +0.7% 📉
