Boom! My latest on the proposed flavor ban in Maine.
Come get your employee, @AryNewsOfficial. He's drunk and genocidal. https://twitter.com/adeelraja/status/1393970858134282240

"Vaping is largely concentrated among non-smoking youth who would likely have smoked prior to the introduction of e-cigarettes."
#OpenScience at its best with @qeios
Dr @nwalker25021458 ‘s review of Dr Fagerstrom and my pre-print on Nicotine Pouches is another encouraging example of a open, transparent and constructive publishing paradigm.
The Gods of @Twitter -- you had enough sense to give me a blue checkmark; how about revisiting the decision to expel @MarewaGlover, a New Zealand public health academic who has fought tirelessly on behalf of Māori women? I forget what the ban was over, so it was likely trivial.
We need verified users to ask twitter support to request reinstatement of @MarewaGlover 👈
Up for a tweet to #DrGloverMatters @GregTHR?
Twitter has a class system. Verified users get listened to more & appear in searches more.
Had a new COVID world experience today.
My taxi driver in Cairo took me to get a SIM card and a store employee told him he had to wear a mask.
The employee who said this was not wearing a mask and she did not put one on during the 15 minutes we were in the store.

1/2 I go off on one in the BMJ rapid responses about anti-science posturing, personal abuse and Matthew Myers, the president of anti-vaping activist group @TobaccoFreeKids. A response to intellectually thuggish comments about @JUULvapor and its science.
My presentation at GFN 2021 will explore this issue in detail: https://gfn.events/programme https://twitter.com/jkelovuori/status/1383936851992449030
"The NIH ... strongly influences some in the academic community to vigorously oppose – and many others to ignore – tobacco harm reduction."
