🚨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.

1) Just a reminder @WHO @FCTCofficial that the roof you live under is held up by pillars YOU are responsible to uphold.

If you ignore one it could bring the whole thing down.

Failing to acknowledge Article 1(d) and #harmreduction #tobaccoharmreduction is a failure of ideology.
2) That failure is not only apparent after the invention of #vape #vaping technologies but has been glaring at you and everyone that has been watching since 2006.

"The Fourth Pillar of the FCTC: Harm Reduction and the International Human Right to Health"

3) Your roof is falling down on your head.

You fail to ask the question, "Why do people use nicotine?"

Instead you dehumanize them. Demonize them. You "other" them.

Why are 70% of cigarettes smoked, smoked by the #neurodiverse?

Why do you attack #safernicotine options?

Thank God @amazon @JeffBezos are way bigger than little old #MS riddled me, sometimes in a heap of hurt, no, that’s HURT 😢
I’ve written letters that never are answered traveloguefortheuniverse.blogspot.com/search?q=Canna…
Now found deltaeffex.com and prefer Delta 8, 10 to Cannabis for Symptoms.
So imagine my surprise as Virginia USA Quasi-Legalized a measured amount of Cannabis, There are New Laws and Regulations (feel the price of a nickel sack go astronomical) in pipe-line.
Banning Post office from delivering vaping products, and Other carriers will be banned too 🤔
Ahhh, I get it, the Legislators formulate their law building by the forces of Money Flow. Delta Effex developed and makes a Superior Hemp Product (legalized under Farm Bill). THC<0.3%. With #Terpenes that promotes, for me, less pain, more active, feel Better ❤️‍🩹

The @TGAgovau has stated they will 'educate' docs & pharmacists on #nicotine containing vapes before the Oct 1 regulations come into effect in #Australia. With less than 4 months to go until that takes effect, they seem likely to fail in that promise.

"[#Nicotine consumers] can import products directly themselves from overseas, and that’s what the 110,000 doctors can write a script for now" John Skerritt of the TGA stated.

One problem though is that GPs typically /won't/ write prescriptions for #nicotine.
2/4
Part of the reason is that around 80% (in the US) to 90% (in India) of doctors /incorrectly/ believe that #nicotine causes #cancer.

What is the TGA doing to correct those misperceptions - which will make this entire approach fail?

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.

Fascinating (but not surprising) that MOST #ANTZ call out from their ECHO (Echo echo) chambers claiming to know what ALL #vape 'fans' think. So here's a tweet thread from a persons who #vapes and is a fan of #TobaccoHarmReduction, to clarify what ONE person in that group thinks.. Image
I'm completely in favor of 'phasing out' combustible #cigarettes. #THR products like #vape, #snus & #HTP could do that in a decade or so if the moron #ANTZ (like Ruth) had not demonized #nicotine & currently .. 'fight' against alternative nicotine products.
But when an #ANTZ says 'phasing out', my auto-correct inserts 'prohibition', and I definitely don't support that. It is a #HumanRight for people to choose to consume drugs, and the role of (ACTUAL) #PublicHealth ppl should be to encourage them to do so in the safest way possible.

The plan to ban #vaping is a disaster for public health

This article in @ConversationEDU is fatally flawed by

▪️Cherrypicking data
▪️Misinformation and false claims
▪️Lack of context
▪️Exaggerating harms
▪️Understating benefits
theconversation.com/making-it-hard…
“evidence for #ecigs helping people quit smoking is inconclusive”

#vaping is more effective than nicotine replacement therapy in randomised controlled trials and is increasing quit rates in countries such as the UK and US
colinmendelsohn.com.au/wp-content/upl…
#cig use in US secondary schools increased 78% in 12m”

▪️Most youth vaping is experimental, short term
▪️Regular use by never-smokers is rare
▪️Nearly all smoke b4 they vape
▪️Vaping is diverting kids from smoking

Youth smoking fell by 25% in 2019 ‼️

1/ @SimonChapman6 was on @abccanberra this morning with @adammshirley creating fear and confusion about #vaping. Let me clarify a few points.

Starts 17m20s
abc.net.au/radio/canberra…
2/ "We don’t know what the long-term consequences are going to be”

It is beyond reasonable doubt that #vaping will be far less risky than smoking. @RCPLondon estimates that the long-term risk is likely to be no more than 5% of the risk of smoking
3/ “Very easy to get nicotine for #vaping from the doctor”

Actually no. The process is
▪️Complex & time-consuming for GPs
▪️Delayed by @TGAgovau approval
▪️Importing by a 3rd party
▪️Import permit needed
▪️Much more costly

It will be easier to go next door and buy a cigarette!

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).

Important corrections on the bullet list seen in this tweet.
"• no tested and approved e-cigarette products are available"
True, and given the 'defined dose' requirement for 'medical devices' it's likely to stay that way.
Ppl approving such things need to get comfortable with the concept of 'self titration' - ..
.. a #vaper uses their device when they feel like it, and only until sated. ➡️ A perfect dose of #nicotine!

The #ANTZ of #TobaccoControl fight for their ideology.
We fight for our lives & those of ppl who #smoke.
We. Will. Win.
It's just a matter of when, and how many lives will be ruined before then.
A message for the #ANTZ of #TobaccoControl who would have our lives conform to their ideals (e.g. a #nicotine-free world).

We've been closely following FDA’s announcement of a partial sales ban on flavored nicotine #vaping products and we believe the proposed enforcement action falls short of its stated goal to protect the public's health. ow.ly/AXWT50xMPI3
The most recent evidence shows that mint and menthol are among the most popular #vape products used by youth and although raising the minimum tobacco purchase age is an important step, it is not enough to stem the youth e-cigarette epidemic.
As one of the first states to raise the tobacco purchase age to 21, #Oregon still experienced a nearly 80% increase in youth e-cigarette use from 2017 to 2019. In fact, 1 in 4 Oregon 11th graders report current use of e-cigarettes and #vaping products like Juul.

E-cigarettes could make nicotine addiction WORSE and 'vapers should get the same quitting help as smokers'
What? You mean the same crappy, ineffective medications that failed me twice? No thanks.

But first, let me check with @ucl.
You have so many fine people. Did you lose a bet to be saddled with Adam Winstock? 🤦‍♂️
(Back into it..) In the end, ironically, I had given up on giving up #smoking, but tried #vaping to lower my smoking costs.
Lower them? It ERADICATED them when I discovered I preferred #vaping.

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).

Subsequent to a COAG (coag.gov.au) meeting, the state government of Victoria is doubling down on #nicotine #vaping.
Some quotes from @VicHealth in "#ElectronicCigarettes containing #nicotine" (www2.health.vic.gov.au/public-health/…)

"The Poisons Code lists #nicotine (for human use when it is a Schedule 7 poison) as a substance that is not for general sale by retail. ..
.. This decision was made on the basis that #nicotine for human use is a dangerous poison, and electronic cigarettes have not been assessed for safety, quality or efficacy."

So .. obviously #NRT has been assessed. #Cigarettes? Oh, my bad - they're EXEMPT from the SUSMP!

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.

THREAD: As the evidence becomes increasingly clear that recent lung illnesses are caused by black market THC products, bans on flavored nicotine #vapor products are proving to be a misguided solution to this pressing issue (1/10)
E-cigarettes and other nicotine-related vapor products that consumers can buy in c-stores and #vape shops across the country are strongly regulated, with ingredient lists provided to @US_FDA (2/10)
Nicotine #vapor products have been tested repeatedly and shown no signs of the vitamin E compound found in illicit THC vapes believed to be the cause of these illnesses. FDA has been clear in warning consumers to stop vaping THC—not nicotine. (3/10)

@OregonGovBrown logic: ppl are getting sick from vaping #THC oil (black market, mostly). So we're going to ban nicotine vape & send nicotine & THC vapers to the black mkt - which is what's been killing people ... Are they trying to kill off all smokers? #VapeBan #vaping
ALL cases where they've found a cause have been THC oil ... and the symptoms of vaping oil (esp. Vitamin E oil) are identical to the symptoms being reported #vaping #VapeBan #vapingsaveslives @OregonGovBrown
Nicotine e-cigs have been around for about a decade.  These illnesses just started this summer.  Ergo, it's something new, not the e-cigs people have been using all this time #VapeBan #vaping #vapingsaveslives

So hey @GovInslee - you’re destroying an industry that I feel passionate about because not only did I get to quit smoking cigarettes from #vaping, but it saved my life. Thread:
I was in a mentally abusive relationship for years. The guy cheated on me for a long while with a minor. My coping mechanism during and after that relationship was Camel Crush Menthols. Pack a day. It was a bad bad habit. Until one day, I learned about something new.
I met someone new after the other guy and I split. Nicest guy ever. He was outside of work and pulled out a #vaping device as I reached for my cigarettes. He educated me about everything, how it was safer, how the nicotine intake could be controlled, everything.

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.

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/

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.
