Welcome back to Tuesday Bro Tuesday. Same show by name only. Each week for roughly an hour and a half we will all be discussing the topics of the day. As well as current breaking news from the Industry.

Today’s Topics include: The CDC , Covid19 and EVALI. We kinda all saw this botch job coming. I will not be down playing the severity of COVID19 in this video, Stay home, wash your hands, don’t touch your face. Also were going to mention the EARN IT bill which is honestly pretty terrifying.

Gizmodo even reported back in October of 2019 that the CDC was still telling people to “stop vaping” but questioned why stating

“The FDA has made it clear, we will not tolerate violations of federal tobacco regulations designed to protect the American public – especially underage tobacco sales to youth. In this case, the FDA was prompted to take action because Smart Toothpicks LLC ignored the laws”

This above text is from the most recent press release from the fine and upstanding organization of the Food and Drug Administration.  I’m definitely glad that with everything on their plate they have FINALLY taken action against “Big Toothpick” and their plan to hook kids on nicotine toothpicks.
