MONTANA: (UPDATE) Three shops & the MT trade association filed suit Thurs. to overturn Gov. Bullock’s emergency ban on flavored products. The suit argues to throw out the order because the “public-health emergency” hasn’t been caused by the shops.

RESEARCH: (UK) Taking into consideration patients’ current e-cig use, their use during a quit attempt, quit success rate and average cigarette consumption, researchers estimate e-cigs helped 50,700 to 69,930 people quit smoking in 2017 alone.

E-cigs help 50K-plus smokers in the UK quit nicotine each year


COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY RESEARCHER: (DEBUNKING FIVE VAPING MYTHS)

1) E-cigarettes ARE regulated.
2) Vaping is NOT as harmful as smoking.
3) Vaping does NOT cause ‘popcorn lung.’
4) E-cigarettes DO help people quit smoking.
5) E-cigarettes are NOT a gateway to youth smoking.

FLORIDA: (HEADS UP!) Community meeting focused on reducing tobacco/nicotine consumption and exposure to tobacco/nicotine related smoke throughout Lee County including e-cigarettes and the representation of any tobacco product.

October 28th
2:30 – 3:30 PM

Tobacco-Free Lee Coalition Meeting | Florida Department of Health in Lee


TAKING ACTION: The Vapor Technology Association, a trade organization, has placed a commercial on a news network for a week, offering an opportunity for the President to back down gracefully from his proposed flavor ban – instead blaming Dept of Health & Human Services, which oversees the FDA.
