Killing Alabama's young people? Ms. Drummond, according to the CDC, here is precisely what killed young people (age 1-19 years) in Alabama in 2016 (last year available). Nicotine vapor: n=0 https://twitter.com/CASAAmedia/status/1393287615227572224
EXPOSING ANTI-VAPING LIES: Alabama's Barbara Drummond (D-Mobile) says it's the "simple truth" that nicotine vapor products "are dangerous, highly addictive, and they are killing our young people.” Except her claims are really the opposite of "the truth."
This isn’t our first OD crisis.
During prohibition, alcohol deaths surged due to unknown potency & methanol toxicity.
Legalization & regulation was the answer.
Just like today.
Prohibition = death
“Adhering to the principle of harm reduction, which would actually enable the phasing out of cigarettes in favour of other nicotine products, risks violating an ideological opposition to tobacco and nicotine.” https://snusforumet.se/en/swedish-mep-calls-out-commission-dishonesty-on-snus-and-cancer/

Looking forward to speaking to @jacobgrier tomorrow evening. Just re-read his excellent book ‘The Rediscovery of Tobacco: Smoking, Vaping and the Creative Destruction of the Cigarette’. Warmly recommended.
"vaping has not undermined the declines in adult smoking. Increasingly incorrect perceptions among the public about the harms of vaping could prevent some smokers using vaping products to quit smoking. A ban on flavored liquids could have adverse effects" https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vaping-in-england-evidence-update-march-2020/vaping-in-england-2020-evidence-update-summary
"US adult dual users of e-cigarettes and cigarettes who perceive e-cigarettes as less harmful than cigarettes are more likely to switch to exclusive e-cigarette use,..and less likely to switch to exclusive cigarette use 1 year later.." https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31278802/
This is happening because the free nic patches and counseling are not working for the residents. We need more solutions to reduce the misery and death from smoking, not less. @GovWhitmer @MDHHS_Director @DrKhaldun @SenAricNesbitt @SenEdMcBroom @RepMarkkanen @MIGOP @MichiganDems
Came in on a day off to help a nursing home resident with MS and his nurse, both w/ device issues. Going forward, I'm starting regular deliveries to the home, demos and instructional classes for residents and nurses. Meanwhile @MichiganHHS collects Bloomberg/pharma$$ to ban ecigs
This is what prohibition looks like. I'm sure there are not too many purveyors of alcohol and tobacco who end up mutilated, leaving their family to pick up the pieces.
