Welcome back to Tuesday Bro NEWSDAY. New name, new subject matter expert and resident fact checker Danielle, same reliable news and commentary.
Every Tuesday at 3:30pm PST for roughly an hour and a half, Danielle and I will be discussing the topics of the day. As well as current breaking news from the world of vaping, nicotine and tobacco harm reduction. Let’s get educated and fight the good fight together!
I recommend viewing the original stream on YouTube. Chapters are included on the video and IMO it’s just the best way to watch it.
Today’s topics include. Re-Framing our fight for tobacco harm reduction. This isn’t about party lines or ideologies. Harm reduction and public health have to rise above partisan arguing. We have spent the last 4 years attempting to appeal to Trump and the Republicans with little success.
Flavor bans are still happening across the country including the national flavor ban on pods rolled out by Trump in 2019. The bi-partisan supported vape-mail-ban is still working it’s way through the system. Small vapor businesses are still dealing with Trump appointed Azar at HHS and Tump Appointed Haan at FDA and their overburdensome PMTA regulations.
Trump did have a very solid idea for how to do tobacco control on a national level, that unfortunately never saw the light of day.
