People in #TobaccoControl often chant a mantra to the effect "#ThinkOfTheChildren!"
Of course, children should be considered, & protected, but why not focus on the harm facing adult smokers? If they can #QuitSmoking by 40 years old (some say 35), they can avoid any serious health implications.
Well, I've thought (probably too) much on this, and suspect these folks all hold the same beliefs:

Now that the dust has settled on yet another #antivaping piece, I may as well have a bit of a yarn.

The antivaping community love to get together and wax lyrical about how everything outside of their purview is a big tobacco ploy to get kids hooked on vaping or something

Never mind that the data shows the huge majority of #vapers are between the ages of 25-50 with the majority of vapers starting later in their lives because....you know, almost all of them are former long term #smokers

Anti-vapers then go on to find conspiracies everywhere they look! They see *publicly posted* images that my organisation gladly posted online for the world to see and insinuate something dodgy must be afoot. "Why else would people support vaping?" they think to themselves

@CDCgov 1) My Mom had #BeenSmokingCigarettes for 30 #Years when she had gotten #pneumonia 2x's during the Winter of 1989-1990. Her doctor told her if she didn't #QuitSMOKING , she would #VeryLikely get #pneumonia again. Then, he Highly recommended that she #GiveNicotinePatchesATry . She
@CDCgov 2) decided to try them; for #ThreeEntireMonths , as the amount of #Nicotine in the patches is reduced each month; even though they caused her to get a small amount of hives! 😃 By that time, she was down to #Smoking 1 or 2 #Cigarettes a day; instead of her usual #PackADay Habit!
@CDCgov 3) And, back then, packs had 30 #Cigarettes in them! BUT, she had to keep a #PenInHerMouth every day; & leave the #SmokingLunchroom at work, too. And, for some odd reason, she used #CinnamonCandies to help herself, too. So, she was #TryingVeryHard to quit; using psychological

What Skerrit is saying in regard to not bringing #tobacco under the prescription model is complete rubbish. The @TGAgovau site explicitly mentions novel #nicotine products - #SLT & #HTP.
Huh.. @hollieahughes just said they're due to report by /18th/ December. I'd thought it was the 1st of December.

Emily Banks 'sum total of world experience' .. yeah, with some heavy #CherryPicking.

மூன்றாவதாக பெரும்பான்மை மக்களுக்கு கொண்டு சேர்க்காதது.
3. புகை பிடிப்பது

இது நுரை ஈரலில் பாதிப்பதால் புகை பிடிப்பவர்க்குள்ளும் பெரும் பாதிப்பை ஏற்படுத்துகிறது. #COVID19 #quitsmoking

"A rational approach to #eCigarettes - challenging ERS policy on #TobaccoHarmReduction."
John Britton, Jacob George, .@LindaBauld, .@LeicesterLungs / Sanjay Agrawal, John Moxham, .@DeborahArnott, Ann McNeill, Nicholas Hopkinson
#EuropenRespiratoryJournal
erj.ersjournals.com/content/early/… Key messages for a rational approach to vaping and e-cigarettes
1) People #smoke #tobacco because of #nicotine addiction, but the major harms come not from the nicotine but from toxic substances in the smoke.
2) #Pharmacotherapy (e.g. dual #NRT or #varenicline) combined with psychological support should be made available to all #smokers to help them to quit and should be considered as the first line approach.

Following a long line of articles from #TobaccoControl types who completely fail to 'get' #TobaccoHarmReduction, @LauraRossouw chimes in to prove she can misunderstand it up with the 'best'.
So let's look at a brief overview of the article..
Firstly, the title itself. Not only do #THR advocates support (sensible) regulation on #eCigarettes / #vaping, but there are, in most countries, a variety of legacy consumer protections that apply to them (e.g. standards for electrical goods or standards for labeling poisons).

The Victorian Government is the latest stakeholder to express concern about vaping, saying e-liquids are becoming increasingly more dangerous.
A torrent of #FUD on..
#vape #vaping #eLiquid #nicotine in #Victoria #Australia
ajp.com.au/news/e-liquid-…
This title is deceptive in that it mentions #eLiquid but then goes on to discuss the components (concentrated #nicotine) used to MAKE e-liquid.
In a regulated, legal market there'd be no need for the latter to be in the homes of #Australians who want to #QuitSmoking via #vaping.
"Minister for Health .@JennyMikakos released data from the Victorian Poisons Information Centre that shows concentrations of #nicotine are getting stronger and the number of child poisonings from e-liquids are increasing."
Caps on maximum strength (in a regulated, legal market).

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.
washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/bannin…
@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.
