Vape Shops. This is your business

Kevin Crowley – Vaping Links

You’re a vape shop owner? Are you saving lives and yourselves? Not afraid of the regulations your industry is under? Are you even aware there are regulations? If not, I’m talking to you. You’re probably already wondering who the hell I am and why I’ve got a chip on my shoulder. Well – let me explain myself and then we can move on from the formalities. I figure that’s only fair.

Our Application to the TGA

New Nicotine Alliance – Australia

The purpose of this application is to propose that nicotine in low-concentrations be exempted from Schedule 7 of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP) so that it may be available for self-administration with an electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS, also known as ‘personal vaporiser’ or ‘electronic cigarette’) for the purpose of tobacco harm reduction (THR).


Researchers(and others!) Pet Hobby horses

To Advance Smoking Cessation – Alan Beard

 One observation that I have discovered over the last 3+ years is the  illogical advancement of one method over another ……I am excluding e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products from this debate (for now)

My early-teen smoking experiences were with Capstan Full Strength, Players Navy Cut or woe betide  me Woodbine, these were all unfiltered cigarettes and all very high nicotine (and tar) products. After trying a few filtered products I found I preferred to use them,…

Is Vaping the Secret to Weight Control?

Beatrice Hazlehurst – Vice

Associate professor Marewa Glover from Massey University’s School of Public Health and her colleagues have trawled through published studies to learn about how vaping affects appetite. Glover has been researching smoking reduction for the past 23 years. With obesity about to overtake tobacco smoking as the mostly costly disease in many countries, she’s looking at whether vaping can actually be part of the solution. We asked her what she discovered….

GFN2016: The Pleasure Principle

David Dorn talks at the Global Forum on Nicotine 2016 about “Why is pleasure so important and so overlooked in much Public Health debate about e-cigs?”

INNCO supports UKCTAS critique

Of FCTC policy on e-cigarettes – New Nicotine Alliance

Today, the International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations (INNCO) added its support to a critical report released this morning by leading academics attached to the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS), in response to the WHO’s FCTC latest report on e-cigarettes (or ENDS as the WHO inexplicably insist on calling them).

Perception Of E-Cigarette Harm

Dr. Ban Majeed

The proportion of American adults who perceive e-cigarettes to be equally or more harmful than traditional cigarettes has tripled over the last few years, highlighting the need for more accurate public health messaging, according to a study led by tobacco researchers in the School of Public Health at Georgia State University.

Mawsley – Planet of the Vapes

Regular readers will know that for years on these pages I’ve maintained that e-cigs have the potential to show up the tobacco control industry as the self-absorbed, trouser-stuffing, socially-destructive, health-be-damned, institutionally mendacious collection of snake oil salesmen that they have always been. However, even I’m suprised at how rapidly the the real life proof of that is stacking up now.
