Is the attack on safer nicotine products about public health?
Considerable evidence suggests that e-cigarettes are an effective smoking-cessation tool for adults in the United States, where hundreds of thousands of people die of smoking-related illness each year.
Kenneth Warner, dean emeritus and the Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, says, however, that the potential of vaping to increase smoking cessation has been largely overshadowed by media coverage and policies that focus on the potential risk vaping represents for teens.
The last two years have seen efforts in state and local governmentsacross the country to ban all flavors in e-cigarettes and even to ban all flavored tobacco products. These bans—some implemented and many others wisely turned back—attempt to combat a youth vaping epidemic by adopting a narrative largely constructed by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and Parents Against Vaping E-Cigarettes, anti-tobacco advocacy groups funded by billionaire Michael Bloomberg. These groups champion unproven tenets that vapor products are a gateway to cigarette use for children and that eliminating all flavored tobacco products will stop children from becoming cigarette smokers.
Apart from being one of my more recent THR heroes, Ethan Nadelmann has been one of the most outspoken critics of the current ‘War on Drugs’. Rolling Stone Magazine called him “The driving force for the legalization of marijuana in America” he has been defending cannabis and drugs his entire career. He is also the founder of Drug Policy Alliance, a New York City based non-profit. Their goal is to “reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies”.

I have a 40mm Trilogy XL RTA today from VaperzCloud out of the UK that I am insanely excited to build and vape. We have an old Azeroth RTA with truly and honestly, one of the strangest decks I have ever seen. Then lastly it’s time to remind myself why I don’t really like MESH RTA’s by giving the Profile the yearly install-of-mesh-and-vape it routine.

“Crackle” or “popping” is generally considered a desirable experience from a vaporizer (RDA / RTA ) but how and why does it happen? what methods can we use to consistently create the deep crackle? does wire matter? do coils matter? diameter? cotton density? surface area?
Today Adam Breezetones and I are going to hold the first ever CRACKLE COUNCIL and do a bit of a deep dive into the phenomenon known as coil-crackle.
