It's been an emotional week. I talk a lot about #HarmReduction. Be it #Smoking or #COVID19, it's the topic of most of my tweets. I never thought I'd be talking about reducing harms caused by cops. This is a MUST READ thread, as 2 hot topics collide. #Heartbroken. https://t.co/kiJINJFEOD

"For every 10% increase in e-cig prices, e-cig sales dropped 26%. But the same 10% increase in e-cig prices caused an 11% increase in cigarette sales. For every e-cig not purchased because of an e-cig tax, 6.2 packs of cigarettes are purchased instead.”
Tax Foundation has updated their map of state taxes on e-cigarettes & vapor products.

"No response to a public health crisis is perfect, but our institutions should not use issue bad guidance and rules that cause more harm than good."
Article says, 15 year-old "Rahul" wanted to try smoking, but feared for his lung health so, he decided to try e-cigs & teens like him are the reason India imposed a ban on e-cigs...because they want him to smoke? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/8y3HxwridV
And those who can't or won't quit entirely should switch to low-risk, smoke-free nicotine and tobacco products in order to improve their health.
(finished the tweet for you)
Occasional smokers have substantially higher risks to die from #smoking-related #cancer than non-smokers. Thus, all smokers should quit, regardless of how infrequently they smoke. https://t.co/qp6tp8Hu33
