‘Reefer Madness’ & e-cigs: ER Doc says vaping can lead to a life of crime

In 1936, an American film named Reefer Madness hit the theaters depicting an ominous and now widely disputed series of events that can occur when high school students experiment with marijuana.  Largely regarded today as a cult classic, the film shows kids getting high who then go on to commit crimes from hit and run accidents, manslaughter, attempted rape, and even suicide. Fast forward to the current day, and we have an emergency room medical doctor by the name of Dr. Sudip Bose making startlingly similar claims surrounding teen vaping and e-cig use.  The ER Doc says teen vaping can...

Virginia and vaping: New study proves e-cigs are not a gateway to smoking

The state of Virginia has been diehard tobacco country since the first settlers stepped off the Mayflower and settled in Jamestown in 1607.  Even today, tobacco is the largest exported cash crop in the state.  And while Big Tobacco and the e-cig industry are often viewed as opposing enemies in the War on Vaping, the Virginia legislature tends to remain almost adamantly neutral in its regulatory actions of both industries.  The Virginia state legislature has virtually zero anti-vaping laws on the books, and its waterside community of Virginia Beach is often rated as the vape-friendliest town in the United States.

Tennessee Department of Health: Vaping, date rape, and heroin addiction

The Tennessee Department of Health (TDOH) is drawing fire for its recently released public health advisory claiming that vaping and e-cigs will lead to a “variety of dangers” including the increased risk of date rape.  The announcement also states that vaping nicotine can lead to popcorn lung and is as addictive as heroin and cocaine.    The vaping industry is growing accustomed to these sorts of outrageous claims made by anti-tobacco advocacy groups who often confuse tobacco with nicotine.  But when the statements are published by public health officials who are far more educated about the differences, the damage to...

Why Big Pharma is cringing over Trump’s pick to Head the FDA

When President-elect Donald Trump announced that he was considering Libertarian Jim O’Neill to become the new head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Big Pharma collectively cringed at the very notion. O’Neill is a venture capitalist with Mithril Capital, a company founded by the infamous Peter Thiel of PayPal fame and a significant investor in the vaping company NJOY, which is now facing bankruptcy.  Should O’Neill get the job, then he will be responsible for implementing, revising, or revoking the highly controversial FDA deeming regulations that threaten to wipe out the entire vaping industry. FDA deeming regulations favor...

Dr. Helen O’Neill & her icky e-cig experiment mixing bubblegum e-liquid with sperm

Dr. Helen O’Neill from the UK Institute for Women’s Health announced to the world last week that vaping bubblegum e-liquid can make a man’s sperm move more slowly.  The story was posted all over the web because, let’s face it, the headline includes the term sperm, and Dr. Helen knows how to manipulate social media in true Trumpian style. But how did Dr. Helen come to the revolutionary decision to mix bubblegum e-liquid with sperm in the first place?  Apparently, if the story in The Times is to be believed, she also experimented with several other flavors, too, because cinnamon-flavored...
