David Levy @thegtnf "I expect distrust of #harmreduction will abate as increased use of nicotine vaping products are shown to reduce #cigarette use in youth, low SES and those with #mental health.." @truthinitiative @TobaccoFreeKids @SmokeFreeFdn
Fascinating interview with @RiccardoPolosa about how vapers who quit smoking can restore important functions that serve as lung defenses. https://twitter.com/inijames/status/1440980543366172672
@RiccardoPolosa found that within weeks of switching to #vaping, complete cilia growth occurs. This helps prevent infections and lung diseases in former smokers. /1 https://twitter.com/ECigDirect_UK/status/1440979378654089219
Turning Point has petitioned a US Court of Appeals to review the marketing denial order it received from the FDA last week. https://vaping.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/21-3855_Documents.pdf
.@TwitterSupport @TwitterSafety You recently did the right thing by removing the media from the @DepressionStick account. I have noticed that not only is the content back up, but you have now verified it.
This is offensive & possibly dangerous
We oversimplify the reasons behind smoker's addictions. I believe the book of addictions must be rewritten.@thegtnf #GTNF2021 #nicotine #addiction
Powerful speaker for ppl who vape & the small vape businesses set up to help others to also stop smoking. No notes. Knows her customers, the lies of the antz & who they are… naming & shaming the reporters, academics, NGOs who are killing small vape shops & their customers! Wow! https://twitter.com/thegtnf/status/1441026130987962369
We are back and delighted to welcome our next keynote speaker, Amanda Wheeler, owner, Jvapes and president of the American Vapor Manufacturers Association. #GTNF2021 #ThursdayThoughts
What this tweet DOESN'T say is that
20% of HS kids = 3 million kids
4.5% of adults = 10.9 million adults
If these products were developed for kids, it's not going well...
3.6x as many adults use vapor products as kids do. https://twitter.com/SenatorDurbin/status/1440786403466432515
.@InsidePMI should save its PR dollars, they can’t hide their deadly history.
What this ad DOESN’T say is that 20% of HS kids use e-cigs, compared with only 4% of adults. Don’t be fooled: these products were developed for kids, marketed to kids, and are being used by kids.
Shops that didn't bother to register or apply for PMTAs are in the most enviable of non-enviable positions.
FDA doesn't know you exist and, for the good of your customers who rely on your products to stay smoke-free, you should strive to keep it that way. https://twitter.com/katherineefoley/status/1441060617612414979
6/x The thinking they expressed to me is that they're genuinely helping people quit cigs, not selling to minors or never smokers. The FDA's application process was too expensive for small shops to get through, they said, so why bother?
A moving and hard-hitting speech from @amandawheeler32 saying what hasn’t yet been said on stage but many must be thinking: the FDA’s PMTA process has been a farce and will have a real negative impact on the lives of lots of people. https://twitter.com/thegtnf/status/1441027536608276480
Amanda Wheeler is high critical of the US ban on open vaping products, saying this has criminalised 10 million people and adding that the FDA has failed. #GTNF2021
