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.

Welcome back to TBN. Vape industry news, advocacy, and information. We have really only one main topic today, but it’s a doozie. Bloomberg and Campaign For Tobacco Free Kids have been meddling in foreign governments. Michelle Minton from CEI is here to help us break down her recent paper regarding some internal leaked Campaign For Tobacco Free Kids documents.

For regular viewers of TBN this isn’t going to seem like super shocking stuff, but believe it or not, it gets more shocking and now we actually have documents showing the agenda. Prohibition on all alternate forms of nicotine. They have the money and influence and they are starting with LMIC countries. I mean after the USA and Canada, those were easy.

Welcome back to Tuesday Bro NEWSDAY. New name, new hosts, same reliable news and commentary.

Every Tuesday afternoon 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, tobacco, nicotine and tobacco harm reduction. Let’s get educated and fight the good fight together!

Today’s topics include: All things nicotine. Today we are going to be giving our thoughts and reviews of the recent You Don’t Know Nicotine documentary released on the IBEX platform. This is a BIG movie, with a much bigger message than just the desire to #KnowNicotine

We are going to chat about “The Mind Study” that Dr Paul Newhouse MD is doing about Nicotine, as well as one of the best and most thorough articles written about nicotine recently published by Filter Mag. It’s all nicotine all the time. Love it or hate it, addiction or dependence, nicotine is here to stay. How can we pretend this isn’t a human rights issue?

Just so people know if you sign up for Ibex, you do NOT get access to You Don’t Know Nicotine, you still have to pay the 20$ – Via Josh… sorry Josh

Vapers are needed for a survey being conducted by The Cochrane Library. The Cochrane Library recently conducted a meta-analysis of 100s of different studies, related to the success of smoking cessation using nicotine e-cigarettes.

I’ll just let them explain it in plain english.

Nicotine e‐cigarettes probably do help people to stop smoking for at least six months. They probably work better than nicotine replacement therapy and nicotine‑free e‐cigarettes.

They may work better than no support, or behavioural support alone, and they may not be associated with serious unwanted effects.
