🚨New working paper🚨estimating the effect of #ecig taxes on teens authored with @JCMecon, @Courtemanche_CJ, @AboukRahi, @sammsafford, @AFriedmanPhD Dhaval Dave, Joe Sabia, and Bo Feng. #EconTwitter🧵

Paper: cheps.sdsu.edu/docs/e-cig-tax…
Press Release: bit.ly/38rm9B1

1/13
Most scientists believe #ecigs are safer than #cigarettes.

Regulating #ecigs such as with taxes therefore restricts access to a reduced-risk consumer product.

#Ecig taxes may reduce #ecig use, but they could also increase the use of more lethal forms of #nicotine.

2/13
31 states have enacted #ecig taxes, often with the stated goal of “protecting kids.”

The federal government is considering setting a federal #ecig tax at the same rate as the #cigarette tax.

[THREAD] Les femmes et la #cigarette : symbole d’émancipation ou opération marketing ? 🚬✊
#JourneeMondialeSansTabac #feminisme Image
Au début du XXe siècle, rares sont les femmes qui fument. Globalement associées aux tâches domestiques et à la sphère du quotidien, elles sont souvent mal vues si elles adoptent des comportements masculins. Les midinettes, qui fument beaucoup, restent discrètes en public.
Dans les années 20, la « garçonne » qui rejette la vision traditionnelle de la féminité et revendique l'égalité des sexes, devient synonyme de femme émancipée. Silhouette androgyne,cheveux courts et fume-cigarette font alors partie de la panoplie de ces femmes aux mœurs libérées ImageImage

Is vaping bad for you? A cardiothoracic surgeon gives her expert opinion.
A twitter thread on #vaping in #Australia, in a news report featuring @drnikkistamp.
Report "debate rages on about whether [#eCigarette are] actually a safer alternative to regular #cigarettes"
Yes, in much the same way that debate rages as to whether #vaccines cause autism, or whether the Earth is flat.
Sans the carbon monoxide & tar of #smoking, ..
.. it'd be pretty extraordinary if they were anything less than /much/ less harmful.

Do #HealthWarnings on #cigarette sticks dissuade #smokers and #NonSmokers? A focus group and interview study of #Australian university students.

Being a former #smoker from #Australia I found it rather odd the researchers asking questions about #GraphicWarnings and their effect, of a group that included NON #smokers.
As time has gone by (not necessarily in this order):
- #Tobacco advertising was banned long ago.
- #Smoking bans put #smokers outside, where they were more obvious to people walking past the #SmokeFree buildings.
- #GraphicWarnings were included on cigarette packs.

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.

After all the sensational stories, #smokers of #America need assurance that it is safer to #vape.
Please implement something like described in "#THR messages targeted to smokers".
(And please excuse the parts about #GraphicWarnings & the British accent narration, I had very little budget & made it for an international audience.)
Of course, a message for #American #smokers would feature different messages. Here are some messages suitable for inclusion as inserts in #cigarette packs. 1/

This opinion piece by a few Ozzies is so full of contorted thinking & debunked logic it is worthy of a @Clive_Bates 13K word smack-down, but I expect he's busy on other things so I'll post some brief points.

"Maternal smoking and intrauterine exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine have been linked.."
Nicely snuck #nicotine in there. Onya!
If U don't understand that CO and tar are largest source of harm from #tobacco #SMOKE then perhaps U should stay in the shallow end of the pool.
"These devices still deliver nicotine .."
You say that like it's a bad thing.
The evidence to support that needs to be balanced by evidence of healthful effects re Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, ADHD, Schizophrenia..
