Anti-tobacco/vaping laws are endangering people. Dr. Paul Sachs of Stamford Health says adult vapers don't want flavors, so add your testimony. CASAA director Julie Woessner panel discussion video. CASAA coordinating with research.
RESEARCH: CASAA is cooperating with researchers from the Department of Life Sciences at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK! This cross-sectional study will look at real vapers' habits and compare self-reported health of people who vape vs smoke.
ADVOCACY: In the week before #WorldVapeDay & #WorldNoTobaccoDay, busy CASAA director @JustJulie_MO (who also serves as INNCO board president,) spoke on a panel discussion with Dr. David Abrams & Dr. Raymond Niaura (NYU School of Global Public Health) about WHO report on vaping.
"If people don't understand that there are alternatives, if they are stigmatized so that they don't even try, it's a huge public health disaster."
@INNCO governing board president @JustJulie_MO
BAD HEALTH POLICIES: Officials were warned such bans would lead to unnecessary, potentially harmful police interactions for a LEGAL product. This is a scientifically baseless outdoor ban (yes, it includes vaping.) Lies used for the war on people who smoke are also used on vapers.
Smoking. Smoking while Black. Make no mistake, smoking or the use of any nicotine is now part of the Drug War.
