The message being sent by Bloomberg-funded nonprofits is simple -- if you can't or won't quit, just keep smoking.
Do they realize they're actually helping cigarette companies thrive? #HarmReduction #Vaping
ACSCAN grassroots manager Priyanka Konanur declares vaping to be "so much worse" than cigarettes. #NotAboutHealth
Governor Polis opposed a flavor ban earlier this year. 👍 https://twitter.com/GovofCO/status/1540345423906254848
Coloradans do not want politicians making their healthcare decisions. We will continue to choose freedom, stand against government control over our bodies, and will not retreat to an archaic era where the powerful few controlled the freedoms over our bodies and health decisions.
Note to the Biden Administration:
You can't ban addictive substances and say you support harm reduction.
All you're doing is driving Juul users back to smoking or to a more dangerous illicit market. https://twitter.com/ElizKinnard/status/1540015060508184578
Soooo send many #vape users to the illicit market of contaminated products instead, where people don’t know what’s in them, which was what caused those lung injuries a few years ago? And possibly other ppl back to combustible #cigarettes? Because banning substances works so well. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1539988944317825024
American Vaping Association President @GregTHR calls Juul ban 'the latest in a series of missteps from the FDA'
'From turning a blind eye to the opioid crisis to having no plans to combat a baby formula shortage, the FDA keeps coming up short'
As they told retailers yesterday, Juul plans to appeal.
Nothing yet about the future status of products on shelves today.
Worth reiterating. The stated basis for the JUUL denials relates to the toxicological profiles of the product.
The same agency authorized combustible cigarettes which you light on fire and inhale as being "appropriate for the protection of public health," according to FDA. https://twitter.com/GregTHR/status/1539989873276461057
The FDA's manufactured reasons for denying the PMTAs are complete nonsense. They authorized IQOS and VLNCs, both of which obviously have worse tox profiles than a Juul.
FDA is also ordering immediate removal of the products. My initial thought is Juul needs to file suit today. https://twitter.com/FDATobacco/status/1539983893947973632
FDA Banning Juul? Not Likely, Explains Vaping Advocacy Group.
"The Biden Administration believes in harm reduction for fentanyl users, but their message to adult smokers and ex-smokers is to drop dead."

An FYI to reporters -- today's leak does not mean that Juul will disappear from the U.S. market post-MDO. #Vaping #HarmReduction
A prediction courtesy of a smart person:
Juul version 1 gets denied. Juul files for and receives a stay allowing its products to be sold during its appeal.
FDA continues to review Juul v2 (with age verification tech) and authorizes it in the future.
The FDA is playing politics with public health and giving in to the unscientific demands of puritans who want nicotine eradicated from society.
And now they're leaking to the press to trumpet their dedication to prohibition.
Shameful. #Vaping #HarmReduction
To Politico last night, Sen. Durbin said that the FDA Commissioner should step down for not removing all vapor products from the market.
This morning, the WSJ reported that’s what the FDA would be doing to the largest player in the space - JUUL.
Read into that what you want. 4
