Re: #FDA Compliance Policy Mod for Certain #Tobacco products.

The real timeline here starts with 2010 when @FDATobacco was denied authority to regulate #vaping as a drug/device. That's we knew for certain that these products would be regulated. . .

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

$PM +2.1% 📈
$MO +1.2% 📈
DJI +0.7% 📉

This is EXTREMELY concerning. New research centre on Indigenous smoking is being funded by the tobacco industry.

Yes, you read that right: *funded by the tobacco industry*

It was all smiles and accolades at the launch, but everyone seems to be glossing over the centre’s funding source and the huge ethical problems that raises.

The centre is being funded by The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World. Here’s their President, Derek Yach, talking about the new research centre. vimeo.com/285901659
