THREAD: Going to breakdown why @RepJohnMahoney, @DWGregoire & @SenJohnFKeenan #flavorban bill is going to accelerate the teen issue, hinder tobacco harm reduction, lose state revenue, empower JUUL and cost the state money... /1
1. The allure of the JUUL is the concealable form factor and high concentration & proprietary formulation of nicotine. The flavor experience is arguably the worst in vaping. The straw purchases & online aves w/o age gates are the source. /2
Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has even publicly praised the vape shop for their ability to screen for underage patrons. The primary avenue in which JUUL is sold is the gas station, C-store & non-21 establishments which will remain open. /3

The legislative efforts against #vaping are misdirected. Lawmakers seeking to reign in #JUUL are not aware of the non-big tobacco small biz that will be put out by the broad brush #flavorban legislation being promoted. We need regulations but the following needs mention.. /1
The small biz segment of the #vaping industry is largely comprised of ex-smokers who found an effective form of tobacco harm reduction and feel compelled to guide others to the same results. These are Mom & Pop retailers providing a beneficial service to their communities. /2
This segment controlled the entire American market for the better half of 8 years without any measurable amounts of youth access to warrant the "epidemic" proportions we are addressing. The teen issue wasn't largely perpetuated until #JUUL began marketing heavy in 2016. /3

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.
